  • "Earth My Body" by Nicole Sangsuree

    56,739 views 3 years ago
    Performed by Nicole Sangusree Barrett, this unfinished version of our video was released when Sang was hit and killed by a car in Thailand. She had called the song her magnum opus. I sung Earth My Body, and other indigenous chants Sang had taught me, as i knelt by her body on the road.

    I shared more with Sang than I have with anyone on the planet, my lover, play mate, twin spirited eco-dweeb. We brainstormed through lifetimes of inspirations for uplifting our planet and her people.

    My lovely, may your message of reverence and reconnection to nature pour into every broken heart and help us all to heal.

    The 'Earth My Body' beginning and end is based on a Native American chant, the sentiment of which echos throughout indigenous cultures around the world - Recognizing that we are pieces of the living planet, awakened into self awareness.
    Sharing the very elements of our bodies with all of life.

    Lyrics

    Earth My Body
    Water My Blood
    Air My Breath
    and Fire My Spirit

    Earth My Body
    Water My Blood
    Air My Breath
    and Fire My Spirit

    I like to sing to the Earth
    I like to hold her
    She likes to sing to me
    She likes to hold me

    I like to sing to the Earth
    I like to hold her
    She likes to sing to me
    She likes to hold me

    I carry fistfuls of leaves
    I make love to the breeze
    I carry fistfuls of bones
    I trust they will lead me home
    I carry grief on my wings
    I know why caged birds sing

    Through many turns of this moon
    My women have suffered wounds
    But my grandmothers with me
    Close your eyes can't you see?
    And my grandchildren are here
    The rose the crow and the deer

    I am surrounded by light
    The light of stories
    We need to quiet our minds
    We need to listen

    We are surrounded by light
    The light of stories
    We need to quiet our minds
    We need to listen

    Earth My Body
    Water My Blood
    Air My Breath
    And Fire My Spirit

    Earth My Body
    Water My Blood
    Air My Breath
    And Fire My Spirit

    Earth My Body
    Water My Blood
    Air My Breath
    And Fire My Spirit Show less
