about

Inspired by a real dragonfly, calla lily, breeze and an old wive's tail passed down by Mama Crow's grandfather. This song took shape after its initial birth in an Oakland garden this summer and has been played live all over the country from Los Angeles to Denver to Minneapolis to New York City and more. So happy to finally have a recording of this for you all!

lyrics

I remember when I was a dragonfly and I could
Sew your mouth shut
In your worst dreams though all I ever wanted was to free you
Sometimes we are born into filters that don't necessarily so serve our best
Don't necessarily so

Take what you want- leave the rest
Take what you want- leave the rest
All that you need- just confess
All that you need- just confess
Just confess

I'm like a calla lily- skin smooth white cream
And my stalk is proud and green
And it bends in the wind but sometimes it strikes me
That what we don't realize we can't pretend
Yes- what we don't realize we can't pretend

Take what you need- there's no end
Take what you need- there's no end
All that you want- just confess
All that you want- just confess
Just confess

I'm like the breeze- you can't pin me down
Though I'm all around you- you can feel
That which is invisible and oh so real
Yes, that which is invisible and oh so real

Just confess

Take all you are and reveal
Take all you are and reveal
All that you want you can feel
All that you want is so real

It's infinite- it's infinite

It's infinite
Have all that you want
It's infinite
Have all that you need
It's infinite
You are complete
