Loving Dingo’s song composed in response to Qld NWTA March 2017

That Was The Day

Verse:
It’s raining, on this mountain again
My head is foggy, like the mist that descends..
I’m so damn sick of being in this cage..
I long to be free, to feel the sun on my face
Now I’m screaming as I try to break down this door
Let it out with a howl leave it lying on the floor
Chorus:
That was the day,
That I dug deep and touched the pain
That’d been part of my life, until I saw the sun again
That was the day,
That I strode back onto the stage
And I reached into the dark, and I found my power again
That was the day..
Bridge:
Now I’m screaming as I try to break down this door
Let it out with a howl leave it lying there on the floor
‘Cause I long to feel the sun shine again
But I need to touch the dark to find my gold..

(Jude Lane)
from album “Heart to Hearth” recorded in the Goonengerry Temple Studio,
home of Mullumbimby/Caldera fortnightly I-Group.
Originally titled “We all belong”, this track arose in response to the challenges of living communally with 10 to 15 others who all had their unique way of being. The renaming of the song occurred just prior to recording it, when the song offered an evolution of the meaning it had carried for 6 years. “We all belong” (a plea for honouring all the parts within the whole) became “we all belong to Gaia”. The phonetic ‘ukha ta-tun Gaia’ precipitated this change.
