What’s it about:
A feminist song

Visual- I imagined a dark forrest through which many have passed including myself.
Very deep within it a woman sits perched on a think branch of an evergreen with wings like an owl.
Her skin is dark, her eyes glow in the darkness.
She is frightening and comforting. She is there to see if you will turn from her gaze yet somehow you know she is protecting you.
She is a Goddess. A Goddess of dreams and lost paths.
She is focussed upon you with pure positive energy, flowing it to you. It is up to you to accept it..’she’ll give you a worm from her ground’ She’ll give you what you want and need from Mother Earth.
It’s also about the hundreds of years women have endured prosecution, torture, murder, rape, and the constant patriarchy trying to make laws which undermine the equality of women which I personally think stems from absolute fear of the power we possess.

“Don’t hide yourself away. High on her perch. A woman of love is at work. If her stare done make you back down, she’ll give you a worm from her ground…”

1st verse: ‘you got me under…

It’s the first time seeing her. I am wondering if I am in a dream.

2nd verse: ‘You got me going. Follow which way to the sky..
Dual meaning possibly?- It’s partly feeling the empowerment of her and speaking to a lover


Part 2
The time signature change.

"In the years that go by so fast. You know she gave you a love to last… “
It’s the exhilaration of this meeting and then the ebb and flow of life..feeling connected and not and then again.

“Sometimes life just bring’s on too much..”
Sometimes it feels that way.

“she gets down on her knees ask for it to stop just for one , one minute..”
For me this is when I forget my connection, or get too far from it. Sometimes just a short distance from it. Forgetting who I really am..extension of Source.

“Oh there’s too much pain..”
When I get caught up in taking things personally.

“So much to share, so much to share..”
And then there’s the facet of feeling so much love for everyone and everything.

“With a gust, a mighty wind someday you will be free a bird on her perch.”
A gentle or big push and I am reunited with her on her perch

“A woman of love, is a woman at work.”

Lyrics

You got me under
your quaint little spell
you sure can tell
Roll roll like thunder,
across the dream, across the dream Don’t hide yourself away
High on her perch
A woman of love is at work

If her stare don’t make you back down,
she’ll give you a worm from her ground
give you a worm from her ground
You got me going. Follow which way to the sky?
Follow down, follow you around
Any way is quite alright,
any way it’s quite alright, Don’t hide yourself away
High on her perch
A woman of love is at work

If her stare don’t make you back down,
she’ll give you a worm from her ground
give you a worm from her ground

In the years that go by so fast

You know she gave you
a love to last
yes she did, she did
oh from high on her perch
she looked down on you
she gave to you
She gave, but now she’s gone, gone away, gone away, gone away

You know sometimes life
sometimes life
just brings on too much, too much

But you got no choice
you might as well just face up
try, try, try
Let those little things
just roll on by

You have to, oh but then
she gets down on her knees
and ask for it
to stop
just for one, one minute you see

Well there’s too much pain
there’s so much So much to share
so much to share,
So,
Yea
with a gust and mighty wind
someday you will be free
a bird on her perch
I said
With a gust and mighty wind
Someday you will be free
A bird on her perch
is a woman at work
