    while the lake whistles
    the wind pants at my window
    the stars eyes open

    unabashedly
    gazing at the naked trees
    the devilish moon

    dragging its soft light
    along the curves of a rose
    peeking through the snow

    it's the perfect time
    the sky's full of metaphors
    this night jazz and blues

    come music man come
    lay your lines beside my lines
    and your beats beneath

    To help us become
    See'ers and not just lookers
    Our ancestor says

    We went ahead found
    Our rennaissance being just me
    Depending on dance

    Traditions lift up
    As we were once taught in songs
    Them hands going up proud

    Knowing the essence
    Nature never going down
    Recongnizing Us

    Hearts so full from Mom
    The love uplifting our name
    Baby its In U

    New maybe technique
    Hands that began never will
    Erase the love left
