Cradle to Grave - Revisited


Can you hear them talk in their ancient voice? They whisper their truth is known.
Do you tell yourself, 'It ain't nothing but the wind,' and you go ahead and leave it alone.
If tomorrow was a new day, erasing all of your guilt, as sure as the sun will rise

Would you tell yourself it ain’t nothing but a wish and go ahead, keep up your fight?
When the Eagle cries, it’s calling out to you and it looks right down into your soul.
Do you tell yourself it ain’t nothing but a song? And anyway, what could they know? Aho

Chorus:
From the cradle to the grave, we are helped along our way.
Our spirit guide lives and won’t betray.
Oh and I for one believe there’s more than one way to receive the guiding light from the one above.
The guiding light from the one above. The guiding light from the one above.

It is all that I hold sacred, all that I believe, Grandmother showed me and now I see.
You can say what you want, and say what you will, my medicine is strong enough for me.
When the visions come in a thought or in a dream and you realize it’s just for you, do you tell yourself that you really can’t believe? It’s for the old one, the liar or the fool?

Repeat chorus
