Lyrics

Through it all. I will love

Through it all. I will love

I will walk through the pain and get drenched in the rain, but I will love.

And I may fall, lose my way, but I will heal anyway because I am love.

Through it all. I will love

Through it all. I will love

I will walk through the pain and get drenched in the rain, but I will love.

And I may fall, lose my way, but I will heal anyway because I am love.

Through it all. I will love

Through it all. I will love

Through it all. I will love

Through it all

I will love

I will walk through the pain and get drenched in the rain, but I will love.

And I may fall, lose my way, but I will heal anyway because I am love.

I will love

I will walk through the pain and get drenched in the rain, but I will love.

And I may fall, lose my way, but I will heal anyway because I am love.

Through it all. I will love

Through it all. I will love

Through it all. I will love

Through it all. I will love

Our hearts are soft
Our spirit’s strong

We are old
We’re bound by

We’re the future

We are the women of today

Today our love will heal our brothers
Bring us back to one another
Let us be the way back to the wonder
We are the women of today

We are purpose
We are perfect
We are present
We are here
To love you as you are

We are courage
We are passion
We are still

Our hearts are soft
Our spirit’s strong
We are the women of today
We are the voices of today
We are the spirit of today
We are the women of today
We are the spirit of today

We are mothers, We are daughters
We are sisters, We are friends
We are white, We are black
We are young, We are old
We are timeless, We are present
Our hearts are soft, Our spirit’s strong
We are teachers, We are leaders
We are beauty, We are grace

Lyrics

My blood is the sacredness of the wombyn within me
My blood is a sacrifice of what could be…
My blood is the sacredness of the wombyn within me
My blood is a ceremony of life flowing to me and through me
My blood is the medicine from the birth of a baby
My blood is a gift to the flowers and the trees
To the Earth and all of humanity…

Lyrics

A woman needs time

time to rest

time to play

A women needs time

to honor her ways

as a woman

and today

I woke up this morning feeling ok

cause I know there is a Red Tent today

Once a month

and it can’t come too soon

women come together underneath a new moon

It’s a paradise.

Women side by side

Sister’s alright

We’re taking some time away

from our day life

a universal love inside

peace of mind

we’re healing here today

in the Red Tent Temple

just come in right way

the Red Tent Temple

you can hear your sisters say

it’s a miracle

we’ve got to find our way

to the Red Tent Temple

a woman’s sacred space

away

feels like coming home

women come together

right now

women come together

from all around the world

where it couldn’t be much better than to be a girl

In the tent we have a chair

where you sit an tell your tale

or just hang and be held

feel alive

when the moment’s there let truth from your heart share

and we won’t might if you got to cry

it’s so simple

just come in right way

the Red Tent Temple

you can hear your sisters say

it’s a miracle

we’ve got to find our way

to the Red Tent Temple

a woman’s sacred space

the red tent temple

it’s a movement

the red tent temple

the red tent temple

it’s a movement

the red tent temple

ALisa Starkweather

the red tent temple

the red tent temple

yeah for girls!
