NEON SKY

I am my mother’s daughter

My name is Neon Sky

I sleep in streets of fire

I do not need a reason  x4

 

I am my mother’s daughter

My name is Neon Sky

My blood’s been cast upon the water

I do not need a reason  x4

 

 

 

I tried to cross the river

But the river was high

I tried to wash in the water

But the river ran dry

 

My name is Neon Sky X4

THREE GENERATIONS

Outside of Shiprock On a windy hill

On the Navajo reservation

You can see all around – the desert the mesa

Where the sacred mountain of the north – debensa

Guards my Grandfather’s grave – nulla shenulla.

The first time we all stood together

Was when we laid my grandmother down

Three generations stood in silence 

Among hundreds of Navajo graves

 

Wait – way a do x2

Tell me one more time, the stories of our past

Wait – way a do x2

Tell me one more time, some parts I do not remember

 

When we laid my grandfather back to earth

The moment before the end

I realized we all had take, one more step ahead

And my father became my grandfather

And I became as he, in the shadow of the sacred mountain

My son became me

 

Wait…

We sweep around the grave

To erase away our tracks

When the spirit voices call your name

There is no turning back

We sweep aro nd the grave

To erase away our tracks

Our love for you will never die

We will not hold you back

Don’t follow me, don’t follow me, don’t follow me

 

And my father became my grandfather

And I became as he

In the shadow of the sacred mountain

My son became me

 

BEFORE NOW & AFTER

Before Now and After

 

Live by the circle

Dance on the beauty trail

heart beat

heart beat

earth and sea

and sun and tide

and wind

and moon and sky

rain for the cool clear river

true to the spirit

dance on the beauty trail

if you can dream

you can dance

hope and fear and joy

and sex and trust and wisdom

desire for the peace in truth

dance for the ones who came before

dance for the ones here now

dance for the ones who are yet to come

before now and after   X2​

if you can dream

you can dance

 

Dance for all my relations

Dance on the beauty trail

Believe, believe

Elk, otter, eagle chinook, meadowlark

SongCatchers, SongCatchers

 

CHORUS …….X4

 

pow wow part with Sax

chorus

 

if you can dream

you can dance

PRAY FOR RAIN 

Tell Buddha, Tell Allah, Tangria, Tell Jah, Tell Jesus, Jehovah, Tell Vishnu, Tell Rah

Tell the father. The son and the holy holy ghost, Tell Pele, Tell Krishna

Only Azanaglaha knows

We pray for rain X2 

Pray for RAIIINNNNNNNNN

We pray for rain

 

The rain of woman is soft and pure, The water cure

She'll wash away the blood of evil monster slain by rainbow walked

Gently so gently she bless the child to womanhood

She feeds the corn, She blesses birth for all its worth

We pray for rain x2

Pray for RAIIINNNNNNNNN

We pray for rain

 

Thank Nozanglashemah

The woman’s rain has finally come

Thank Nozanglashemah

The woman’s rain has finally come

Nozanglashemah

Nozanglashemah

Pray for RAIIINNNNNNNNN

GIVE ME FREEDOM

I am a lion 

Caged in a stranger’s world

Of….and neon lights

Traffic jams

Streets full of cops

And losts souls in a hurry

To punch the clock

 

I am the eagle 

Don’t fly no more

\oh wey, I miss the open sky, Yo wey

I miss the cloud people. Wey oh weh

 

Give Me Freedom X4

He Yo  X4

I see through, The eye in my heart

Beyond these prison walls

And though I cannot hear the animals cry

I dream of earth mother’s skin below my feet

I dream of pure sweet water

To wash this poison from my lips

 

Oh Were are all the medicine people

Where all the sacred ways

Where all the elder’s voice

To get me through these crowed lonely days

 

I will die dancing

Where the land is wide and open

I will die dancing

Where the mountains kiss the sea

I will die dancing 

Til I find my way back home

I will die dancing 

Til I finally am free

 

Give me Freedom 

DREAMING IN COLOR

Dreaming in Color

Vocables...

 

I'm Dreaming again, again in Color

I’m Walking, again in Beauty,

vocables...

 

Have you heard of the good Red Road?

All I know is this concrete street

All I hear is the broken promise.

For as long as the grass will grow

 

Have you heard of the Good Red Road?

All I know is this endless highway

All I see are these iron fences,

 

They keep me out, they lock you in. 3X

They keep me out...

 

White is the Dawn,

Blue is the Day,

Yellow is the Eve,

and Black is the Night.

 I'm Dreamin again in color...

 

I'm Dreaming again in color, I’m walking again in Beauty,

vocables...

 

Do you believe in the Good Red Road,

It'll heal your heart like the Pull of the Sea,

The Tide's gone out for oh so long

Now the Tide, it is turning.

 

You come out out, We come on in. X5

 

White is the Dawn,

Blue is the Day,

Yellow is the Eve,

and Black is the Night.

I'm Dreamin again in color...
