Song Description

If we quiet our brain mind long enough, we can hear what the elements of the land has to say to us through all of our senses

Story Behind the Song

LuLu is engaged in Delicate Lodge training that embodies listening to other minds in our body, beyond our brain. In this case, it's the body-mind and listening to what one can experience when really listening to nature.

Lyrics

You can start awakening
You can start awakening the body mind

I traveled far into the north to remind me where I came from
Pulled back a month in time I found the land had reawakened
Boots sunk hard in crusted snows grappling tight to weary feet
The time was ripe to let my body learn a language deep

Chorus I
Have you heard the wind?
Southern winds whistling pine needle clusters
Have you heard the wind?
Water rushing through rock-walled canyons
Do you feel the sun?
Kiss your face through frosted naked branches
Do you feel the sun?
Luring light and warmth relieve your tired bones

At first I did not hear the words the land had whispered to me
Land cannot speak, I avowed through language steeped in feeling
But hold she would the striking sun seducing my great pleasure
Of awakening to Mother's gifts in bountiful sweet freedom

Chorus II
Can you taste the snow?
Frosted leaves clinging to last season
Can you taste the snow?
Cartwheel tumble in footprint chasms
Have you smelled the burst?
Pinpoints of life seduce sun stirrings
Have you smelled the burst?
Survivors bud beneath winter's scale
Have you seen the ice?
Melting forward, downhill pathways, trails
Have you seen the ice?
Rushing, cleansing, breath life awakens you

You can start awakening
You can start awakening the body mind

See the ice cleanse the trail
Smell the burst stir the buds
Taste the snow footprint flakes
Feel the sun warm your bones
Hear the wind hear the wind wake your soul
