Shift Your Spirit

by Lynette Diaz

Written in 2008. A decade old now and back into my regular repertoire. As I do more street performance, certain songs are feeling more poignant and a counterbalance to cover songs.

    Shift Your Spirit (LDiaz, 2008)

    Make me a vessel

    I want to carry your message

    Lots to be spoken

    But not everyone will listen

    Might be going down a different road

    Some of us will feel the burden

    Of a heavy load

    Ch:

    Shift Your Spirit, Shift Your Spirit

    Shift Your Spirit and Fly

    High, High, High, High...

    V2:

    Shift Your Spirit

    And you can hear the voice inside you

    Listen closely and you can hear your

    True voice guide you

    Moving away from monetary

    and physical pain

    Trading it up for some insight and gain

    Ch:

    Shift Your Spirit, Shift Your Spirit

    Shift Your Spirit and Fly

    High, High, High, High...

    V3:

    What's your direction?

    Well there's a compass right inside you

    Want some protection by asking others

    To provide for you

    Feel the power that you wield

    When you act from your own will

    Ch:

    Shift Your Spirit, Shift Your Spirit

    Shift Your Spirit and Fly

    High, High, High, High...

NOTES
Original Words and Music: Lynette Diaz
This was one of those organically written songs that just flowed out of me quite quickly and had no clue of theme or where it was heading until it was done. I tend to think of it as a gift, for that's what it felt like at the time. Arohanui xx
