So the theme for Song Lyric Sunday (this week) is to post a song that makes you feel better.
My first choice is this delightful anthem from Cris Williamson. I always feel better after playing this LOUD and singing along with this wonderful choir of women!! I feel so connected! I dare you not to smile at the very end!!
Chris’s voice is so clear and powerful. I LOVE her joyous, sometimes poignant and always and “heartful” singing!
I have used Williamson’s music often in my work. And one time, I had the extreme pleasure of being at a Bonnie Raitt concert (she’s my favorite), when Bonnie invited local treasure, Cris Williamson, up on stage to sing Angel from Montgomery with her!! WOW!!
Song of the Soul
Song of the Soul (Cris Williamson) Love of my life I am crying I am not dying, I am dancing Dancing along in the madness There is no sadness Only the song of the soul cho: And we'll sing this song Why don't you sing along Then we can sing for a long, long time Why don't you sing this song Then we can sing along Then we can sing for a long, long time What do you do for a living Are you forgiving, giving shelter Follow your heart, love will find you Truth will unbind you Seek out a song of the soul Come to your life like a warrior Nothing will bore yer, you can be happy Let in the light, it will heal you And you can feel you Sing out a song of the soul Love of my life I am crying I am not dying, I am dancing Dancing along in the madness There is no sadness Only the song of the soul
