I see them smile through faces of people I don’t know
I hear them in the music on my radio
Wisdom of the winds
Faces in the clouds
Rhythm of the rains
Old mountains standing proud
They prepare me for a special place
Tell me I’ve no time to waste
Challenge me to face my life’s request
Encourage me to do my best
Everywhere I go in everything I see
Flying in the air speaking truth through me
I am a curious spirit child
Who fell to earth through a crack of lightening
But God so kind and merciful sent old souls to guide me home
A vow that all betray
Old souls walked this land with dignity and grace
Consecrated earth it was a sacred place
A perfect balance of nature a gift to all the world
Still I throw away the oyster just to wear the pearl
In my darkest deep depression
They give counsel to my soul
They open up new meaning
And God’s power takes control
I am a curious spirit child
Who fell through a crack of lightening
But God so kind and merciful sent old souls to guide me home
Thanks to thudord
