lyrics

Our Mother

Heard her lullaby
In the evening sounds

Knew her perfume
In the wildflowers

Felt her rock-a-bye
In the waving grain
I joined her peaceful rhythm
We were one


Heard her laughter
In a rippling green brook

Saw her grace
In the falling snow

Felt her heartbeat
In the pulsing, blue sea
My heart joined hers
We were one

CHORUS:
And the Sun gives her warmth and light
The moon is her lover in a candlelit sky
And She gives us life
She gives all life
Our Mother

Saw her rejoice
In spring’s new life

Heard her silence
In the still, purple night

Knew her spirit
In every living thing
My soul joined hers
And we were one

CHORUS:
And the Sun gives her warmth and light
The moon is her lover in a candlelit sky
And She gives us life
Gives all life
Our Mother

BRIDGE:
In the rains and storms I heard her crying
Talking to the moon
Reminisced about her little children
When we cared for her
When we loved her

As I listened I found that I was crying
Talking to myself
Rains renew but cannot mend all we have done
No, it starts with me
It starts with one

I must go home, return to her, our mother
Join me sister, Join me brother
Together we can bring her peace, see her smile again
When we care for her
When we love her

CHORUS:
And the Sun gives her warmth and light
The moon is her lover in a candlelit sky
And She gives us life
Gives all life
Gives us life
Our Mother
Care for her
Mother
Gives us life

about

Dawnya Clarine Sandpoint

Clarine’s songs are beautifully crafted, her production tastefully understated, and her singing so heartbreakingly pure as to suggest she knows your secrets and your soul.

Elements of jazz, blues, soul and reggae are woven together under Dawnya’s smooth, sultry voice.

Think Jason Mraz meets Norah Jones with a Ruthie Foster kick.
