Rootless

Published December 30, 2021 by tindertender

lyrics

Shield brother calls to beg me
get a message to his girl
ancestors stirring, sending messages
through our own across the world
I am listening, I am following
as warriors of the light can only do
we ride rootless
on heavy medicine
every day until our lives are through

CHORUS 1 
we ride rootless on heavy medicine 
disconnected from the ground 
we ride rootless in dark places 
unafraid that we might fall or die or drown 
we are working, we are tireless 
we are seekers of the way 
we ride rootless on heavy medicine 
and we live to fight another day 

Time to do the work while my bones and blood are wild 
with lessons learned and secrets shared 
Friends and lovers help me put my armor back together 
and never let me leave home unprepared 
My comrade sets his fiddle to his shoulder 
and I know today there’ll be no turning back. 
We’ll ride rootless 
on heavy medicine 
unashamed of what we lack 

CHORUS 2 
We ride rootless on heavy medicine 
disconnected from the ground 
We ride fearless in dark places 
hearts in danger but our spirits safe and sound 
We are working, we are tireless 
singing songs to stir the sky 
We are honor bound to share these visions 
walking tall and getting by 
walking tall when we don’t fly 

Dirt beneath my nails 
I claw my way home from the forest 
just as crazy as before 
but I am breathing and I am laughing 
taking one step at a time 
bringing truth from door to door 
and I’m not the only one 
one of many 
unafraid to open eyes or heart or mind 
We ride rootless 
on heavy medicine 
and we do it all the time 

CHORUS 3 
We ride rootless on heavy medicine 
disconnected from the ground 
We ride windward across the wasteland 
skin in danger but our hearts all safe and sound 
We speak the language of song and shadow 
We are tenders of the flame 
We ride rootless 
on heavy medicine 
and from day one we’ve never been the same 

CHORUS 4 
We are healers working retail 
or working graveyard without pay 
We tell stories in our circle 
We listen or we dance or we just pray 
We are working, we are tireless 
We are teachers of the way 
We ride rootless on heavy medicine 
and we walk it every day 

CHORUS 1 

END COUNTERMELODY: 
we are here so the stories get told 
don’t give up ride out be bold 
build the fire bright and strong 
speak your truth and sing your song 

you are here so the stories get told 
goddess bless your weary soul 
raise your voice to call the cry 
storytellers never die 

goddess bless your weary heart 
tried and tested, torn apart 
holding hands around the flames 
healed and whole we rise again 

goddess bless your weary soul
we are here so the stories get told
and we live to fight another day

Feeling Poetic

Published December 30, 2021 by tindertender

The neighbor just pulled up in his car playing this song loud. Usually he’s playing (what I call) gangster music, so this was out of the ordinary, most likely a message for me ….. “believe me”.

Well, it’s not far down to paradise, at least it’s not for me
And if the wind is right you can sail away and find tranquility
Oh, the canvas can do miracles, just you wait and see
Believe me.

It’s not far to never-never land, no reason to pretend
And if the wind is right you can find the joy of innocence again.
Oh, the canvas can do miracles, just you wait and see.
Believe me.

Sailing takes me away to where I’ve always heard it could be
Just a dream and the wind to carry me
And soon I will be free

Fantasy, it gets the best of me
When I’m sailing
All caught up in the reverie, every word is a symphony
Won’t you believe me?

Sailing takes me away to where I’ve always heard it could be
Just a dream and the wind to carry me
And soon I will be free

Well it’s not far back to sanity, at least it’s not for me
And if the wind is right you can sail away and find serenity
Oh, the canvas can do miracles, just you wait and see.
Believe me.

Sailing takes me away to where I’ve always heard it could be
Just a dream and the wind to carry me
And soon I will be free

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
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

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

Our Game

Published February 26, 2021 by tindertender

A story told of long ago
Before they knew
They were powerful.
Materials ruled the world
They sang sad songs
Of how they suffered.
With narrow eyes
And twice sold lies,
A victims view
From inside a cube
My Love

Then all at once
But one by one
They heard the call
A simple song saying
“When would you like
To leave it all behind?
You can quit all your sorrow
Lose track of time
And jump in- surrender
Wash it all away
Jump in and remember
This is our game
My Love”

And now the tables have turned
And the scales have evened
And the Illusions
Are breaking at the seams
And the patterns
And problems
And prisons of the past
Will be pushed under the table
Never meant to Last
And we grow in numbers
Day by day
A familiar smile
Upon your face
My Love.

Then all at once
But one by one
They Heard the call
A simple song,
Saying, “When would you like
to leave it all behind?
You can quit all your sorrow
Lose track of time
And jump In- surrender
Jump in- surrender
Wash it all away
Jump in and remember
This is our game
My Love”

The Sacred

Published February 26, 2021 by tindertender

In this moment all the earth, stands still
Time unwinds its coil
Life is filled to the brim
With spaciousness

Oh, how simple
Oh, the sacred
Oh, how simple
Oh, the sacred

Unfolding sighs, and cries rang out
A universal openness
Each spirit here sang in tune
Into ferocious Love

No fear here
No fear here
No fear here
Here

Oh, the sacred
Oh, the sacred

Published February 19, 2021 by tindertender

Oooohhh I Am so blessed!

I arrived home from work to a warm house. I took my shower right after I ate the dinner I brought home, fully expecting it to be necessary. I was pleasantly surprised!

As I was showering a song came to mind, and I sang it the whole time I bathed, luxury!!!!

Joy to the World!!!!

When I got out of the shower and was toweling off another little diddy came to mind …

She’s Fresh!!!!

I Am so Grateful!

Sending Great Love to you All ~
