lyrics

Child you gotta keep the body you have alive
Child you gotta keep the body you have alive
Love it, keep it strong, be wise and survive
Child you gotta keep the body you have alive

Child you gotta keep the soul you’ve got whole
Child you gotta keep the soul you’ve got whole
Oppression will tear it apart, so root in what makes you grow
Child you gotta keep the soul you’ve got whole

And you will never be alone when you do
Your ancestors, your God are holding you
And for as long as I can, I’ll be here too

Child you gotta protect the air you’re gonna breathe
Child you gotta protect the air you’re gonna breathe
Water is life and sacred the fight, to remember we are dust and light
Child you gotta protect the air you’re gonna breathe

And you will never be alone when you do
Your ancestors, your God are holding you
And for as long as I can, I’ll be here too

Child you gotta build the world you want to live in
Child you gotta build the world you want to live in
The beautiful, the just, for joy and for love
Child you gotta build the world you want to live in

The beautiful, the just, for joy and for love
Child you gotta build the world you want to live in

I am a songwriter, seeking to cultivate my own humanity and the humanity others, through lyrics and melodies, harmonies and stories of liberation.
