Transform (Take Me Away)

from by Norine Braun



Transform (Take Me Away)

I am ready
To race within
Grip is steady
Strong taut skin

Coup de main
Where did they come?

Panting heavy
Calm cooling night
Feel dripping
Absorbed by light
Did you see the healing glow?

And so the legend goes
They fought all day
Their longtime foes
The Blackfeet came to overthrow
They gathered strength for one more go

Take me away to the land of the other side
Take me away to transform to celestial guide
Take me away transmit ancestral sight
Take me away to become the mythic light

I am floating
Toward the shore
I am fighting
To win the war
Can you see me up high?

If you whisper
Into the wind
I’ll be waiting
To lift you in
Take my heart out set me free

The prophet raised her hand to sky
Taking many times to end her life
When the people came to take her home
The body remained intact and whole
Take me oh take me away to the land of the other side …

Her music sounds like the union of Nick Cave with Patti Smith & City and Colour deep in the Canadian forests.

An imaginative display of fine musicianship, potent vocals and heartfelt lyrics, talent like hers doesn't exactly come around too often. Music Emission
