lyrics

We walk like angels under the skylight
Dance like lovers warmed by delight
We reach to the other side with our dreaming
And the rains do come
We blur beyond the edges reaching closer
Dissolving to being, cosmic roller coster
Glide on a skate wing, fly the apple cart
And ride away

Rise with me and I’ll rise with you
Step on my shoulder sister, I’m coming too
Rise with me and I’ll rise with you
Step on my shoulder sister

We dance in waterways screaming blindly
Oh the glory of yesterday
A day to remind to me
Of all I’ve been and done
And the choices that I made
We slip into shadows fill them with love
Laugh at our foibles, grab our boxing gloves
To defend all we believe in
Even though it makes no sense at all
It makes sense to the little ones within us all

Rise with me and I’ll rise with you
Step on my shoulder sister, I’m coming too
Rise with me and I’ll rise with you
Step on my shoulder sister

Together stronger, together not apart
This comparison has died a death
And judgement does not serve my heart
Oh I will hold you in your glory

Rise with me, rise with me, rise with me, rise
Rise with me, rise with me, rise with me, rise
Oh, rise with me and I will rise with you

We scream like children when the hurt is hard
Hide in our prisons, don’t want to show our heart
Cry in deceit when were too afraid to share our shame
There is dust in my compass, which way to go
The ocean is calling heavy with its soul
Phoenix fire and the watery glazes over me

Rise with me and I’ll rise with you
Step on my shoulder sister I’m coming too
Rise with me and I’ll rise with you
Step on my shoulder sister

We walk like angels under the skylight
Dance like lovers warmed by delight
We reach to the other side with our dreaming
And the rains do come

And the frosts do come biting, frighting, chilling,
Holding a new beginning
Oh the frosts do come willing, chilling, freezing
Warming inside and a new growth begins
Oh another year green sprouting
Another year we’re all green shoots sprouting, yeah

Rise with me and I’ll rise with you
Step on my shoulder sister, I’m coming too
Rise with me and I’ll rise with you
Step on my shoulder sister
