Nahko We Are on Time

Pure spirit shines

The Indianapolis concert of Nahko and Medicine for the People, supporting #NoDAPL, was the reason our local #NoDAPL group gathered outside the concert site last weekend.

 

I’m not going anywhere, babe

This is your home

It’s a safe place

We’re electric

Summer storms

Calm these waters

When a sail is torn

Now I won’t fight you

There’s no need

Such protections

They make us weak

Every compass

Needs a north star

Tame this recklessness

But keep these wild hearts

 

I am on your side

I am on your side

 

Pull your trigger

Push my buttons

Aim for reasons

God, we’re so stubborn

Is this patience

Showing grace

When to be close

And when to give space

Oh babe, you ground me

Lightning rods

Come find shelter

In these arms

Sometimes I’m broken

Sometimes I’m mended

On the road

I can cope to get up and do it all over again

 

I am on your side

I am on your side

I am on your side

I am not drawing a line

Only want what is right

What is best for your life

 

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

 

So meet me in the streets

In the dark, in your bare feet

Meet in a place like your heart

Drop a phat beat

Wind begins to blow

It’s a sweet validation

Nature has her signs

And they’re clear affirmations

 

We are on time

We are on time, yeah, whoa

 

So come, on turn the lights down

Give a little, get a little

Come on, let your guard down

Give a little, get a little

Come on, turn the lights down

Give a little, get a little

Come on, let your guard down

Give a little, get a little

 

We are on time

We are on time

We are on time

I am on your side

We are on time

I am on your side

We are on time

I am on your side

We are on time
