about

Written after and intense experience in a Native sweat lodge in early 1992.

lyrics

Spirit Dancer
(T. Downing)

lightning strikes - a lone explosion
fire in my mind
I'm hoping these ecstatic visions
won't strike me blind
still I wear the hours
my spirit torn inside
praying nature leaves me
with a modicum of pride

ancient dreams
look inside me
ancient dreams
walk with me

staring at the open ocean
clouds gather above
I'm thinking of a grand illusion
people full of love
but every time i blink my eyes
the tears wash the dream away
i sit and wait for its return
perhaps another day

spirit dancer, dance your dreams
let it fill your heart
tear the sky open wide
make a brand new start
spirit dancer, dance your dreams
let it fill your heart
fill the sky with your cries
make a brand new start

rabbit on the southern wind
coyote in the stones
the sweat pours out of me
and chills me to the bone
red road calling, but
the city calls me its own
but can i walk a million paths
and ever end up home?

lightning strikes - a lone explosion
fire in my head
I'm hoping these ecstatic visions
won't strike me dead
