The Gratitude Song Demo

Hello,

At this dark moon, I just uploaded a demo of a new song I am writing/have written.  You can listen to it by clicking the player below.  This is a homemade recording, not the fancy studio production that most people are used to hearing. I decided to post it tonight to move past my fear and to let music do what music is supposed to do for others, whatever that is.  Today I saw a friend and colleague at a book signing.  We worked together for five years, and being an author was his dream.  Seeing and being in the long line of people waiting to have him sign his newest release was an inspiration.  

The chorus of this song is in Irish (commonly referred to as Gaelic), and it means thank you (plural).  The song is meant to acknowledge all of us workers and our connectivity.  As I keep playing, singing and polishing it, it will likely change a bit.  But if I wait for perfection to post, I’d stay stuck and afraid another day.  That’s one too many.  Wishing everyone a much easier time under Monday’s new Virgo moon.  Affirming the world’s troubles and tensions giving way to love.  Thank you for visiting.  Thank you for listening.  

Here’s a little video, postcard from Colorado, that I put together for it. 

 

The Gratitude Song (Gur Raibh Maith Agaibh)

Elizabeth Pendleton

Ordinary day begins

Boiling water, coffee beans

Dark powdered fingertips

Dark powdered fellowship

Ordinary day begins

Running water, coffee seeds

Dark soil on fertile land

Dark soil on working hands

I may never know your name

I may never see your face

But I see the Light in you

I praise the Light in you

Ordinary trip begins

Grocery store, shopping list

Wheels rolling down the aisles

Wheels rolling on for miles

Ordinary trip begins

Grocery store on the list

Wheels filling up interstates

Wheels filling up dinner plates

I may never know your name

I may never see you face

But I see the Light in you

I praise the Light in you

Chorus: 

Gur raibh maith agaibh

Gur raibh maith agaibh

Gur raibh maith agaibh

Ordinary night begins

Velvet skies, origins

Dancing with Jupiter and Mars

Dancing with Bear and Dipper stars

Ordinary night begins

Velvet skies, future glimpse

Dancing on a tiny rock

Dancing secrets yet unlocked

I may never know your name

I can see your Holy face

I see the Light in you

I praise the Light in you

Chorus
