STORY OF THE SONG:

I am WOMAN

One night I had a dream…

Before I tell you about this dream, I should say that all of my life I have had music in my head.  Thousands and thousands of them.  Songs that I write, music that I write, etc.  Some of the songs are complete.  Some of the songs are just fragments of a song like a phrase or a chorus or a melody. 

They are my own personal soundtrack.  They help me cope with the daily stresses of life.  They ensure that I am happy.  They are where I deal with my emotions, especially the more intense ones.  Because they are so personal, I have never shared them with others.

I certainly never expected to share them with the world.  But then I had this dream.

 

So…

One night I had a dream…

In the dream I was in a huge space filled with light.  I couldn’t see the edges of this room or hallway.  It seemed to go on forever.  Everywhere I looked there was golden and white light pulsating, glowing and sparkling.  I was alone in this space, but not lonely.  I was immensely happy and at peace.

In the background, almost as if it was a radio playing in the background, I heard this voice singing this melody.  I couldn’t place the voice.  It sounded so beautiful.  I had never heard the melody before.  It was so strange and yet oddly comforting.

The voice was singing this chorus of “Oooo oooo”’s.  It was so pretty. 

I couldn’t place the voice yet at the same time it was oddly familiar.

So there I am walking through this space, completely at peace, jamming to the radio.

Then, out of the blue, my grandmother appeared.

She came up on my left side out of nowhere.

She put her hand on my shoulder, looked me right in the eyes, and said…

“You should write a song about women and the things that make us powerful.”

And then just like that she disappeared.  Vanished into thin air.

The second she said that to me, it was like a rush came over me.  Lightning and warmth coursed through my heart, spirit, and soul.  It was almost as if I became awake.  I don’t know how else to say that.

Then after she vanished, I listened to the radio some more.  I had this weird realization that the voice in the radio was mine.  It was trippy.  That I was the one singing the oooo oooo’s.

It was so strange, extremely vivid, and yet awesome at the same time.

I woke up right then.

I picked up my phone and sang the oooo oooos chorus into my recorder.  And thus the song was born.

After I recorded the chorus, I sat down and wrote the verses about my mother, grandmothers, etc.  It is a song that reminds us of our connection through the ages back to the very first woman.

The song “I am WOMAN” is a song about the true power of women: 

our connection

It is a song that I hope strengthens you as you listen to it.

I AM WOMAN LYRICS

I am WOMAN
I am WOMAN
I can make anything work
I am WOMAN
I can do anything

Love of my mother
Love of my mother
The courage it does impart
Her sweet tenderness
Buried deep in my heart

Strength of my grandmothers
Strength of my grandmothers
Spurs and encourages me
Makes me fear no man
For all eternity

I stand on the shoulders of my mother and her mother
With the WOMEN who came before me
In their footsteps I walk
Tuned in their harmony

Oooo oooo oooo oooo
Oooo oooo oooo oooo
Oooo oooo oooo oooo
Oooo oooo oooo oooo
Oooo oooo oooo oooo

The blood of my mother
The blood of my mother
Courses and flows in my veins
I FEAR NO ONE

When you face me
I will STAND UP for Myself
And you'll face
ALL THE WOMEN behind me
And THE WOMEN behind them
Behind them
Behind them
Behind them
I AM NEVER ALONE

We go on and on
Thru the break of dawn
Our blood flows
From the first WOMAN


We go on and on
Thru the break of dawn
Our blood flows
From the first WOMAN
Through infinity

Oooo oooo oooo oooo
Oooo oooo oooo oooo

Oooo oooo oooo oooo
Oooo oooo oooo oooo
Oooo oooo oooo oooo

We are Dauntless
Link Unbreakable
We're Unstoppable
Unwavering
Indomitable

We are DAUNTLESS
Link UNBREAKABLE
We're UNSTOPPABLE
UNWAVERING
INDOMITABLE
