  1. Longhouse
In cart Not available Out of stock

An original modern song in Native American style by Shawn Gallaway - It is about community and sacredness – when doing it alone, we can go back into the darkness. When we reconnect with family both in the physical and in spirit, we come back into balance within ourselves; and we can go out and walk whatever our particular walk is, knowing that we are never alone. It is also about honoring the duality of life – the community of women to women, and community of men to men. When we are each in balance, then the two can come together as family and change the world - no one is left behind.

Lyrics

I’ve been feeling battered
Beat up and abused
My career is crazy
The kids all got the flu
I want to be a woman
Present in all I do
But this western world keeps leaving me
Stressed out and confused

Take me to the Longhouse
Where I can be with women
Listen to their stories
Find my strength again
Take me to the Longhouse
Where council fires of old
Turn my tears to wisdom
As the mystery unfolds

I’ve been working steady
For many long, long years
My pursuit of money’s
Left me empty and in tears
Now which way can I turn to
To heal these manly woes
There’s one place in the forest
I hear I can go

Take me to the Longhouse
Where I can be with men
Listen to their stories
Find my strength again
Take me to the Longhouse
Where council fires of old
Turn my tears to wisdom
As the mystery unfolds

There’s a war on the home front
A pain in our hearts
This power struggle stirring
Keeps ripping us apart
We want to free the love
Lost beneath these lies
But we’re not sure what we can do
To cross these troubled lines

Take us to the Longhouse
Where we can meet as friends
Listen to our stories
Find our strength again
Take us to the Longhouse
Where council fires of old
Turn our tears to wisdom
As the mystery unfolds

Take us to the Longhouse
Where we can meet as friends
Listen to our stories
Find our strength again
Take us to the Longhouse
Where council fires of old
Turn our tears to wisdom
As the mystery unfolds

Take us to the Longhouse
Take us to the Longhouse
Take us to the Longhouse
Take us to the Longhouse
Take us to the Longhouse
Take us to the Longhouse
Take us to the Longhouse
Take us to the Longhouse
