“Earth My Body” by Nicole Sangsuree – WeEarthlings

Performed by Nicole Sangusree Barrett, this unfinished version of our video was released when Sang was hit and killed by a car in Thailand. She had called the song her magnum opus. I sung Earth My Body, and other indigenous chants Sang had taught me, as i knelt by her body on the road.

I shared more with Sang than I have with anyone on the planet, my lover, play mate, twin spirited eco-dweeb. We brainstormed through lifetimes of inspirations for uplifting our planet and her people.

My lovely, may your message of reverence and reconnection to nature pour into every broken heart and help us all to heal.

The ‘Earth My Body’ beginning and end is based on a Native American chant, the sentiment of which echos throughout indigenous cultures around the world – Recognizing that we are pieces of the living planet, awakened into self awareness. Sharing the very elements of our bodies with all of life.

Lyrics Earth My Body
Water My Blood
Air My Breath
and Fire My Spirit

Earth My Body
Water My Blood
Air My Breath
and Fire My Spirit

I like to sing to the Earth
I like to hold her
She likes to sing to me
She likes to hold me

I like to sing to the Earth
I like to hold her
She likes to sing to me
She likes to hold me

I carry fistfuls of leaves
I make love to the breeze
I carry fistfuls of bones
I trust they will lead me home
I carry grief on my wings
I know why caged birds sing

Through many turns of this moon
My women have suffered wounds
But my grandmothers with me
Close your eyes can’t you see?
And my grandchildren are here
The rose the crow and the deer

I am surrounded by light
The light of stories
We need to quiet our minds
We need to listen

We are surrounded by light
The light of stories
We need to quiet our minds
We need to listen

Earth My Body
Water My Blood
Air My Breath
And Fire My Spirit

Earth My Body
Water My Blood
Air My Breath
And Fire My Spirit

Earth My Body
Water My Blood
Air My Breath
And Fire My Spirit

Thanks!
