TUATHA DEA PRESENTS IN ASSOCIATION WITH NIGHTSONG RECORDING STUDIOS

​MAMA GINA

Singer/songwriter and wanderlust Mama Gina feels most at home when she can feel the earth beneath her feet and taste the freedom of the open sky.
  With down-to-earth, bluesy vocals, a bit of humor, and straight-ahead, rhythmic, acoustic guitar, she tells the true stories that fall into her head and heart.
She sings of life, death and rebirth. She sings of holding on and letting go.
  She speaks to the Gods and Goddesses and they speak back.  She sings their stories as they become her own.
  She sings of her spiritual connection to the natural world, and of our responsibility to nurture both the mundane and the magical.
  When she is not performing, you just might find her camping in the woods seeking inspiration from the earth beneath her feet and that vast, open sky.

Lyrics
You traced my shape upon your stars


You traced my shape upon your stars

Wrote my name in your sky

Pointed me due North

So you could find your way on the darkest night

You honored me - Begged me shelter

Stretched me like canvas – Wore me like cloak

To your warrior’s art, I played my part

And I fell in the dance to his spear in one stroke

 

Your children – my cubs

We lived with each other and that was enough

Took what we needed - But we never took more

Until your lights burned brighter

Than the stars in your sky

And now due North’s forgotten

And now there is slaughter … and now there is war

 

A war I have no heart to wage

It seems you have no heart at all

And so, due North, your compass fades

And I am just some trophy for your wall

Honor lost, collecting dust

A relic tossed aside – have you no soul?

The wounded – the abandoned cubs

And no one counts the stars that fall

 

Your children – my cubs

We lived with each other and that was enough

Took what we needed - But we never took more

Until your lights burned brighter

Than the stars in your sky

And now due North’s forgotten

And now there is slaughter … and now I’m no more

Just some stars in your sky … pointing due North

 

I’m just some stars in your sky – pointing due North

I’m just some stars in your sky – pointing due North

I’m just some stars in your sky
