Time's Up (The Call) ...and on not waiting

October 12, 2018

 

 

17 weeks pregnant with a toddler at home and I don't often feel like my former musician self. But #timesup on waiting for perfection, or the write time, because now is the time to use our voices. I wrote this song a few months back and decided to share it with you while I'm working on another song that I wrote about sexual assault. Yeah, that's right. Really light hearted stuff on my mind these days! 

 

I could write for days about this song but for now I will just share these lyrics and leave you with the YouTube link. Thank you so much for listening. We are better together and if you have something that you have been waiting to do "there's no need to play small!" xoxo

 

My Roots they start just below

And I’m on the surface but oh 

I’d forgotten them so 

My feet plant down and my eyes close

And I’m gonna search for them 

Women who came before they are worth fighting for

Owning our voices

Starting an uproar 

 

And oh you’ll hear the call

Time’s up, show up, time’s up, show up, time’s up, show up

There’s no need to play small

And oh you’ll hear the call

Time’s up, show up, time’s up, show up, time’s up, show up

And let love lead it all 

 

It began rooted in a womb and 

Carried generations fo women

In turn the population of all civilization 

That somehow was silenced but yet carried on 

Ancient and holy, literally growing 

Trusting and knowing humanities own 

There’ strength in their voices

More int heir choices

Now gathered on horses

And leading a charge

 

And oh you’ll hear the call

Time’s up, show up, time’s up, show up, time’s up, show up

There’s no need to play small

And oh you’ll hear the call

Time’s up, show up, time’s up, show up, time’s up, show up

And let love lead it all, let love lead it all, let love lead it all

Time’s up, show up, and let love lead it all 

 

Exposed and forgotten but not anymore

The younger ones coming are so powerful

You can’t stop them from loving, fighting for all

They’ll stand on their feet and they’ll answer the call

Power misunderstood, given away

That dynamic is over, we’re calling for a change

Rallied and standing together their heard

The daughters of witches who could not be burned

 

And oh you’ll hear the call

Time’s up, show up, time’s up, show up, time’s up, show up

There’s no need to play small

And oh you’ll hear the call

Time’s up, show up, time’s up, show up, time’s up, show up

And let love lead it all, let love lead it all, let love lead it all,

Time’s up, show up, and let love lead it all
