Title: GREAT SPIRIT [Nahko bear music video] (YT link) Uploaded by Gro Films.

Lyrics:

Great spirit, I have had it

Bring me back to the nomadic

Way of weaving through the damage

Mindful, stay mindful

Great spirit for my sisters

Let me be a flowing river

Flood the banks the rocks that bind her

Carry, i’ll carry

Great, great spirit (uh-oh-oh)

Great, great spirit

Great spirit, for my brothers

Let me be a mountain under

Which he climbs to discover, his process

Now thats progress

Great spirit, all that hinders

Tie reminders to my fingers

I must speak to you more often

Great, great spirit (uh-oh-oh)

Great, great spirit

Great spirit, for my relations

Give them strength to face racism

In every single situation, easy now

Go on speak loud

Great spirit, take me instead

Guide me down the rode of red

Tunkashila, I am saying

Praying Great, great spirit (uh-oh-oh)

Great, great spirit

Tunkashila

Tunkashila

Tunkashila

Tunkashila

Great spirit, just don’t collapse

Nothing but the earth will last

And i’ll be singing sweetly into the darkness

Now hark this

Great spirit, on my tongue

Be still, be still

The time will come

When everyone will sing all life is sacred

While i’m waiting Great spirit, my fist is up

Bringing the power to the people

Your reflection of us

Some of your people can’t hear it

The cries of the earth

Some of your people can’t feel it

The way that it hurts

And it hurts, great spirit

And it moves, great spirit

Interconnected in the wreckage

Of a paradigm on its way out

Its way out

Speaking of spiritual lyrical testimonies

The spirit that did resist

Weaving around false prophecies

Spirit directed and selected

With the message i bring

While the ship slowly sinks

I’ve been directed to sing

I’m like a wrecking ball

Breaking down the walls of the past

A minimalist

Livin’ on bliss

With the last of my cash

You’re gonna be justified

With how you treated the land

You’re gonna be by my side

When i stand and demand

A change

Tunkashila

Tunkashila

Tunkashila

Tunkashila

(Grandfather) Great, great spirit

Great, great spirit

Great, great spirit

Tunkashila

Great, great spirit

Tunkashila

Music, Rock, Medieval: Leaves’ Eyes – Elegy

I do have a ton of music with medieval themes, but I did not organize the posts well when I first put them up. You can try medieval music rock and sort through that, if you’d like to listen to similar artists.

Title: Leaves’ Eyes – ‘Elegy’ Napalm Records (YT link) Uploaded by Blank TV.

Lyrics:

Teardrop on a fragile eyelash
She’s looking like a dream
Hoping for some understanding
An answer or at least
A calming word, a single sentence
To restore her heart
Aching since the day I left her
Crossing lonely seas

Silent tears of a woman
Make a warrior cry
Heaven, I beg you, please release
Hopes from fears

This is my elegy
Do you know what I feel?
This is my elegy
Do you believe it’s real?
Will I hold you, in my arms again?

Dewdrops on a single rosebud
This purity of rain
Reminds me of the moment I left her
Kisses filled with pain
And if I should leave her waiting
For another year
Will she ever know the answer?
Will she follow me?

Silent tears of a woman
Make a warrior cry
Heaven, I beg you, please release
Hopes from fears

This is my elegy
Do you know what I feel?
This is my elegy
Do you believe it’s real?
Will I hold you, in my arms…
Hold you, in my arms again?

A calming word, a single sentence
To restore her heart
Aching since the day I left her
Crossing lonely seas

Silent tears of a woman
Make a warrior cry
Heaven, I beg you, please release
Hopes from fears

This is my elegy
Do you know what I feel?
This is my elegy
Do you believe it’s real?
This is my elegy
This is my, this is my
Do you know what I feel?
This is my, this is my
Elegy
Do you believe it’s real?

Will I hold you in my arms again?

Music, Oldies: John Lennon – Starting Over

Beautiful throwback to the 60s and 50s. Love it!

Title: John Lennon – Starting Over (YT link) Uploaded by Laidon 123.

Lyrics:

Our life together is so precious together,
We have grown – we have grown,
Although our love is still special,
Let’s take our chance and fly away somewhere alone,

It’s been so long since we took the time,
No-one’s to blame,
I know time flies so quickly,
But when I see you darling,
It’s like we both are falling in love again,
It’ll be just like starting over – starting over,

Everyday we used to make it love,
Why can’t we be making love nice and easy,
It’s time to spread our wings and fly,
Don’t let another day go by my love,
It’ll be just like starting over – starting over,

Why don’t we take off alone,
Take a trip somewhere far, far away,
We’ll be together all alone again,
Like we used to in the early days,
Well, well, darling,

It’s been so long since we took the time,
No-one’s to blame,
I know time flies so quickly,
But when I see you darling,
It’s like we both are falling in love again,
It’ll be just like starting over – starting over,

Our life together is so precious together,
We have grown – we have grown,
Although our love is still special,
Let’s take a chance and fly away somewhere alone.

Title: Zombie Ghost Train – To The River (YT link) Uploaded by Noise In Your Head.

Lyrics:

I will take you down to the river, I will take you down
I will take you down to the river, down to lonesome town

A cold wind was blowin’
Black clouds lay on the ground
I was hell bent, and you were heaven bound
I sold my baby, sold my baby to the night
You grabbed at my hand as I held you under
A watery grave for you to slumber
I hushed my baby, sold my baby to the night

I will take you down to the river, I will take you down
I will take you down to the river, down to lonesome town

I will take you down to the river, I will take you down
I will take you down to the river, down to lonesome, down to lonesome, down to lonesome town

The terror and the passion
Shaking were my hands
My evil deed
Her death I did demand
I cried a river in which she drown

I will take you down to the river, I will take you down
I will take you down to the river, down to lonesome, down to lonesome, down to lonesome town

Title: Danko Jones – Had Enough (YT link) Uploaded by Bad Taste Records.

Lyrics:

You always think you’re right but when you realize
You’re wrong you turn your head and pass the buck
(Owohoho)
You’re neither here nor there, you’re never playing fair
Then wonder why you’re always found alone
(Owohoho)
You’re always sayin’ things and exaggerating
It’s hard to know just who you are
(Owohoho)
You keep on praying but things just stay the same
You fail to look and see that everybody’s been waiting

When you cry at night alone and don’t know why
There is no one left and I’ll be walking on
When you burn in hell remember what I’ve said
You had your chance I’ve had enough
I’ve had enough

You’re always sayin’ things and exaggerating
It’s hard to know just who you are
(Owohoho)
You keep on praying but things just stay the same
You fail to look and see that everybody’s been waiting

When you cry at night, alone and don’t know why
There is no one left and I’ll be walking on
When you burn in hell remember what I’ve said
You had your chance I’ve had enough
I’ve had enough

I’m sick of suffering, you’re givin’ nothing
I need something
I’m sick of suffering, you’re givin’ nothing
I need something

You’re only playing, we’re all fading
I’m sick of waiting, waiting
You’re only playing, we’re all fading
I’m sick of waiting, waiting

When you criticize with your pretty eyes
You drove a stake right through my heart
When you burn in hell remember what I’ve said
You had your chance I’ve had enough

I’ve had enough
I’ve had enough
I’ve had enough

I’ve had enough
I’ve had enough
I’ve had enough
