We Are Called ©2013 Laurie Story Vela

We are called to justice, we're called to share
We are called to compassion, we're called to care
We are called to serve each other where we can fill a need
We are called to lend a helping hand, to clothe or feed
We are called, we are called

Life itself is calling us from within our hearts
The light that shines in each of us guides us where to start
We are called, we are called, we are called

We are called to simplicity, we're called to green
We are called to earth stewardship, we're called to clean
We are called to preserve this nest that is our home
We are called to do our highest best, united as one
We are called, we are called

Life itself is calling us from within our hearts
The light that shines in each of us guides us where to start
We are called, we are called, we are called

We are called to passion, we're called to happiness
We are called to joyful fun, we're called to bliss
We are called by life to love and laugh, to dance and play
We are called to let our passions light our way
We are called, we are called

We can choose to ignore the call or we can choose to hear
We can choose to act in Love or walk away in fear
It's our call, it's our call

Life itself is calling us from within our hearts
The light that shines in each of us guides us where to start
It's our call, It's our call, It's our call
Mmmmm ... mmmm we are called, we are called, we are called, we are called, we are called ...

For Humanity ©2016 Laurie Story Vela

Chorus:
Hand in hand we take a stand
Each our own part, heart to heart
One family ... For humanity, for humanity

Clean the seas, plant more trees
Save the bees, restore our home to sanity
Sacred land, sacred humanity,
Sacred land, sacred humanity
(Chorus)

Set all slaves free, build homes for refugees
Feed the hungry, share from our wealth of plenty
Feed the hungry, feed humanity
Feed the hungry, feed humanity
(Chorus)

Let all people be, living with dignity
free from bigotry, change the path of history
Free the people, free humanity
Free the people, free humanity
(Chorus)

Bridge:
There's enough Love in you, in me
to live this dream of humanity ...
End suffering and pain at the core
Put an end to war forever more
Restore humanity
(Chorus)

We're humanity, we're humanity, we're humanity

Freedom ... Freedom's comin' ... Overground Railroad's runnin' ...

Rail of Liberation, we're runnin' free ... for eradication of slavery!
We're comin' .... Freedom's comin' ... Overground Railroad's runnin'

Millions of slaves in our world today

In the affirmation of abolition, Freedom's comin' ...
With our ancestors undergound ... we're comin'
Humanity is Freedom bound ...... Overground ... Railroad's runnin'
We're comin' ... we're comin' ... Freedom's comin' ... Freedom's comin' ... Railroad's runnin'
Freedom ... Freedom... Freedom! (fade out)

Mama Where Are You?
©2018 Laurie Story Vela

Mama where are you?
Tell me you're still alive.
Haven't seen you since they split us up on the border line.
Me? I'm mostly fine.
There's a lady here, she's real kind. She's real kind.
Chorus:
Mama, I miss you, taken from me
Where can you be? In this land of the free

Another kid here says he talked to his parents
And from the border, Ice put them in a cage
A cage! Oh mama, are you in a cage?!
We came here to be safe, we came here to be safe
Chorus

True we had no money and the gangs were after me
Sure we believed in this opportunity
But mama they locked us up, they took you away
Kind lady here just says pray
Mama I pray, mama I pray
Chorus
How can this be the land of the free?!

We’re gonna reach

We're gonna march

 

Silence © 1998 Laurie Vela 

I have known the sweet sounds of Love singing to me in the silence.
I have been cradled there in Spirit's alliance.
I have known this comforting shine finding peace that truly is mine.
I have heard silence so sweet. I have looked at silence as peace.
Silence as peace, peace, peace.  Silence as peace.

Chorus:
Tell me what there is to discuss with the silence in each one of us.
Is it the heart or the ear that listens with love or fear.
Tell me what is trying to be heard when silence has the last word.
When silence has the last word.

I have known the cold denial of men hiding from me in the silence.
I have been crying there to male defiance.
I have been decieved by truth and lies that come wrapped in silent disguise.
I've been burned by silent fire. I've looked at silence as liar.
Silence as liar, liar, liar. Silence as liar.

Chorus

I have heard the painful cries of people who are trapped within the silence.
Heard them screaming for freedom & self reliance.
There's a voice they can't express. There's a choice that is repressed.
Silence choking every last breath. I've looked at silence as death.
Silence as death, death, death. Silence as death.

Chorus

When silence has the last word.

When silence

Shine Through The Shadows ©2016 Laurie Story Vela

How long is your shadow today?
Have fear and darkness placed you in harms way?
Ya feelin' angry, scared, sad and low ...
Nowhere to go ... ya can't run from your shadow.

Chorus:
Rise up and shine! Darkness is at the door.
Answer with your light; shine brighter than ever before!
Shine more ... explore the shadows ....

Shadows tall and long are all around.
Even ones you love have let you down.
Feelin' dismayed, betrayed, broken apart ...
Let the cracks allow more light to shine through your heart!
(Chorus)

How deep is your shadow today?
Do you feel ancestors alive in your DNA?
Painful blame, shame, name casting games ...
Darkness grows yet justice knows how to chase all our shadows away!

So rise up and shine! Darkness is at the door.
Answer with your light; shine brighter than ever before!
Shine the light that seeds your soul!
Shine the Love that makes you whole.
Shine the Love that shortens your shadow ...
Shorten your shadow ... Shine brighter than ever before!
Shine more ... explore the shadows ....
How long and deep ... your light ... your shadow ...

Standing Rock © 2016/2019 Laurie Story Vela

Standing Rock we stand with you
in solidarity and gratitude
We join you with prayers in our feet
Let the black snake sleep
Let the black snake sleep

Standing Rock we dream with you
in solidarity and gratitude
We co-create clean energy
Let the black snake sleep

Power of the water
Power of the wind
Power of the sun
We honor the One
Let the black snake sleep
Let the black snake sleep

Let's call into birth
clean energy with Mother Earth

Let the black snake sleep
Let the black snake sleep
Let the black snake sleep
Let the black snake sleep
Standing Rock we stand with you

Shaman Song ©2018 Laurie Story Vela

In my heart, I am guided, I listen, I know
Free from hurt, I forgive and flow.
Free from hurt, I forgive and flow.
In my heart, I am guided, I listen, I know.

Chorus
I have the wisdom of the shaman.
I am guided. I know what's right.
I live my power. I flow the Light.
I give my best energy to the holy circle of life ...

In my heart, I know who I truly be.
I create my happy life, I am free.
I create my happy life, I am free.
In my heart, I know who I truly be.

Chorus

In the dark or light, I have the power to see.
I tap Creation energy inside me.
In the dark or light, I have the power to see
I tap Creation energy inside me.
Chorus


With the power of creation, I flow the light.
I live in the holy circle of this life.
I live in the holy circle of this life.
With the power of creation, I flow the light.
Chorus
Holy circle of life .... holy circle of life


Open Flow © 2006/2009 Laurie Story Vela

Ooohhh, open flow 

I open my mind to my heart’s flow
I tune into my heart and I let go
I sense and I feel, I listen and know
My heart rejoices to be heard,
to be nurtured, to grow
Ooohhh, open flow 
    

I open my mind, my heart flows
Ooohhh, open flow 
Ooohhh, open flow 

I open my heart to the flow of my soul
I tune into my soul and I let go
I sense and I feel, I listen and know
My soul rejoices to be heard,
to be nurtured, to grow
Ooohhh, open flow 
 

I open my heart, my soul flows

Ooohhh, open flow 
Ooohhh, open flow 
Ooohhh, open soul.
Ooohhh, open heart,
Ooohhh, open mind,
Ooohhh, open flow 
Ooohhh, open flow
Ooohhh, open flow
  

We Rise ©2018 Laurie Story Vela

Each day, the sun, the sun will rise
We open our eyes and live our lives
Each day with hope, we laugh, we cry
Each day we rise and live our lives

We rise up and shine
we rise up and Love
We rise up and sing our song

We let the light lift our minds
We let the Love lift our hearts
We let the song lift our souls

We rise, we rise, we rise
We rise, we rise, we rise

With the light in our minds
With the Love in our hearts
With the song in our souls, we rise
With the song in our souls, we rise
