lyrics

Oh the desert calls to say
sweet child come my way
bring your footprints to my skin
let your heart be wild again

Tobacco and white sage
we remember the way
our ancestors harvested earth’s medicine
and sang with the hymns of the wind
Oooooooooo oooooooooooooo

May we trust what we’ve been given
every burden is a blessing
every shadow is a teacher
to show where we don’t see our light
We hold the truth in our hands
we have come to heal this land
We hold the truth in our hands
we have come to heal this land

So we sing with the wind
we howl at the moon
we dance with grandfather fire
until the earth, she beckons us to retire
To you, I belong
to your mountains, your desert songs
to your waters, from which I came
and to your flesh, I will return again
Oooooooo oooooooooo

May we trust what we’ve been given
every burden is a blessing
every shadow is a teacher
to show where we don’t see our light
We hold the truth in our hands
we have come to heal this land
We hold the truth in our hands
we have come to heal this land

So in the desert, just before the dawn
in this great darkness
we remember our soul’s song
And just like a whisper
coming through the night
we begin to awaken to our light

Yes we trust what we’ve been given
in this time that we are living
we are the dreamers, we have a vision
we are the medicine men and women
We hold the truth in our hands
we have some to heal this land (x4)
We have come to heal this land (x3)
We have to heal (x3)
