I Am

Welcome magic and wonder
Brilliance and grace
Welcome joy, satisfaction
Pleasure and strength

Welcome essence, beauty, presence
Time, spirit, form, and space
Welcome excellence in every blessing
Sacred and pray

What I seek, I am
What I wanna know, I understand
All I wish I could, I can
Who I wanna be, I am

What I seek, I am
What I wanna know, I understand
All I wish I could, I can
Who I wanna be, I am

Welcome magic and wonder
Brilliance and grace
Welcome joy, satisfaction
Pleasure and strength

Welcome essence, beauty, presence
Time, spirit, form, and space
Welcome excellence in every blessing

What I seek, I am
What I wanna know, I understand
All I wish I could, I can
Who I wanna be, I am (to be)

What I seek, I am (ooh-ooh)
What I wanna know, I understand (I-I)
All I wish I could, I can (whoa-oh)

I am a seed, I am a tree
I am the flower, I am the bee
I am fire and I am wind
I accept love and also I give (I am)
I am loud and I am mighty (ooh-ooh)
I am silent and I tread lightly (I-I)
I am a brave and monumental (whoa-oh)
I am modest, I am gentle (I am)
I am a student and I teach
I am the sand and I am a beach
I am ease and I am power (I am)
I am bridge and I am tower (I am)
I am reason, I am wild (I am)
I am mother, I am child
I am many, I am few
I am God, and God is you (I am)

Solitude

https://www.jazziz.com/song-of-the-day-pasquale-grasso-solitude-feat-samara-joy/

In my solitude
You haunt me
With reveries
Of days gone by

In my solitude
You taunt me
With memories
That never die

I sit in my chair
And filled with despair
There’s no one could be so sad
With gloom everywhere
I sit and I stare
I know that I’ll soon go mad

In my solitude
I’m afraid
Dear Lord above
Send back my love

I sit in my chair
Filled with despair
There’s no one could be so sad
With gloom everywhere
I sit and I stare
I know that I’ll soon go mad

In my solitude
I’m afraid
Dear Lord above
Send me back my love

Firebird’s Child

Published October 4, 2022 by tindertender

I choose my fantasy.
My fantasy does not choose me.

lyrics

I am the firebird! 
I am his daughter! 
I am the firebird’s child! 
I am a firebird! 
I am his daughter! 
And like the flame, I am wild wild wild wild 
WILD! 
I am the firebird! 
I am his daughter! 
I am the firebird’s child! 
I am a firebird, the boldest song you’ve ever heard 
Join in the dance, and make it wild, wild, wild! 
Join in the dance and make it wild! 

To see a maiden dance around 
a fire is not so strange 
but fire dances round the limbs 
of this uncommon maid! 
Be brave enough to burn 
and you’ll be brave enough to fly! 
Join your sister Solace as 
she lights the morning sky! 

I am the firebird… 

Wonders of the water air and 
earth are all the same 
you’ll never know a wonder 
like the wonders of the flame! 
Freely fly as what you are 
and never walk in shame! 
You must not fear to blister 
if you’d live a life in flame! 
I am girl and firebird 
and solace is my name! 

I am the firebird… 

If you’re brave enough to dance 
then you are brave enough to fly! 
Forget what’s right and proper! 
You won’t know until you try! 
If you’re brave enough to fly, 
then you are brave enough to burn! 
Take my hand and join me in the 
Carnival of Dawn! 

I am the firebird… 

Sister will you follow me? 
Sister will you follow me? 
Sister will you follow me? 
Sister sorrow walk with me! 

(Solace, Sorrow, round and round 
Sisters burn the morning down 
Solace, Sorrow, round and round, 
Sister, burn your Sorrow down!) 

Like a flame you must be wild/I am a firebird! 

I am the firebird… 

You must not fear to blister if you’d live a life in flame! 
Freely fly as what you are, keep dancing just the same! 
You’ll never know a wonder like the wonders of the flame! 
I am girl and firebird and Solace is my name!  see less

Memories

Published September 10, 2022 by tindertender

When I was 2.5 years old my mother got busted with a suitor in the cafe she worked at. Dad pistol whipped him, putting him in the hospital. Told him he best leave town if he wanted to live. He did. My father left us. I remember laying on the floor of some cold brick building with my mother for sleep. This song was playing, and she was sobbing. I cried as she clutched me close to her chest.

Pain

And love

In one

Bittersweet

Moment

Every time I hear this song I relive that moment.

The Message

Published April 4, 2022 by tindertender

Woke with this song in mind …. messages comin’ in HOT!!!!!

She was A Jezebel, this Brixton queen
Livin’ the life like a back street dream
Tellin’ mi lies when the truth was clear
I think she knew what I wanted to hear

Spinnin’ mi ’round like a wheel on fire
Walkin’ on tightrope, my love’s high wire
Fatal attraction is where I’m at
There’s no escapin’ me
I just wanna be close to you
And do all the things you want me to
I just wanna be close to you
And show you the way I feel

I feel love
When I’m lying in the midnight hour
Holding you just like a dream

Love is never what it seems
When we touch
And you’re holding me the way you feel
Girl, you make my dreams come true

You make my dreams come true
I just wanna be close to you
And do all the things you want me to

I just wanna be close to you (Huh)
And show you the way I feel (Huh-huh-huh)
She was a Gemini on the cusp of Mars
She holds mi back or she too far
Windin’ mi up just to let her down

So emotional, gagged and bound
There’s more to this than meets the eye
A devil woman locked outside
With the full moon rising, I was scared

I think I was possessed
I just wanna be close to you
And do all the things you want me to

I just wanna be close to you (Huh-huh-huh-huh-huh-huh)
And show you the way I feel
I feel love
Every time your body’s next to mine
Something deep inside of me

Wants to love you endlessly
When we touch
Girl, you don’t know how it makes me feel
I just can’t believe it’s real
I can’t believe it’s real

I just wanna be close to you
And do all the things you want me to
I just wanna be close to you
And show you the way I feel

She got an attitude, I can’t explain
You never know if you’re in frame
Tying me up with elastic words
I’m on the countdown till I get heard

Her blood was hot, she burned so bright
A neon sign there in the night
It’s hard to say if I went too far
My heart still bears a scar
I just wanna be close to you

I just wanna be close to you (Huh-huh-huh-huh)
(I just wanna be close to you) She was A Jezebel, this Brixton queen
Livin’ the life like a back street dream
Tellin’ mi lies when the truth was clear
I think she knew what I wanted to hear

Spinnin’ mi ’round like a wheel on fire
Walkin’ on tightrope, my love’s high wire
Fatal attraction is where I’m at
There’s no escapin’ me

I wanna be close to you
And do all the things you want me to
I just wanna be close to you (I just wanna be close to you, baby)
And show you the way I feel

I wanna be close to you (Baby)
And do all the things you want me to
I just wanna be close to you
And show you the way I feel

Moving Meditation

Published March 31, 2022 by tindertender

I do believe a moving meditation is in order tonight. SJ Tucker does a fabulous track. I play it on repeat. Loud. With headphones. While “moving” energy.

https://skinnywhitechick.bandcamp.com/track/moving-meditation

New release, dedicated to the Soulwriters group, without whom this song wouldn’t have been born. 

From S. J.: lately my dance practice has really helped me to manage my moods and emotions when nothing else could. This track is for anyone who finds calm and renewed strength in taking time to move, or to breathe.

lyrics

Open up and breathe in your moving meditation.
When the stress is rising up, take it down.
The water lilies of your thoughts are sacred.
Let them rest inside the sound for now.

Breathe in; breathe out.
Breathe in; breathe out.

Savasana

I Feel Free

Published April 7, 2021 by tindertender

Love it when I get messages in song!

Bomp, bomp, bomp, bomp, bomp
Bomp, bomp, bomp, bomp, bomp
I feel free

Bomp, bomp, bomp, bomp, bomp
I feel free

Bomp, bomp, bomp, bomp, bomp
I feel free

Bomp, bomp, bomp, bomp, bomp
I feel free

Bomp, bomp, bomp, bomp, bomp
I feel free

Bomp, bomp, bomp, bomp, bomp

Bomp, bomp, bomp, bomp, bomp
I feel free

Bomp, bomp, bomp, bomp, bomp

Bomp, bomp, bomp, bomp, bomp
I feel free

Feel when I dance with you
We move like the sea
You, you’re all I want to know

I feel free
I feel free
I feel free

I can walk down the street, there’s no one there
Though the pavements are one huge crowd
I can drive down the road, my eyes don’t see
Though my mind wants to cry out loud

I, I, I, I feel free
I feel free
I feel free

I can walk down the street, there’s no one there
Though the pavements are one huge crowd
I can drive down the road, my eyes don’t see
Though my mind wants to cry out loud
Though my mind wants to cry out loud

Dance floor is like the sea
Ceiling is the sky
You’re the sun and as you shine on me

I feel free
I feel free
I feel free

I, I, I, I
