Rainbow People

Song: Rainbow People
Artist: Inanna, Sisters In Rhythm
Album: Skin And Bone

The way that I see it
We’re all rainbow people
The way that I see it
We’re shining with life

The way that I see it
We’re all rainbow people
The way that I see it
We’re shining with life

When I look into the eyes
Of all the people I see
It reveals a kind of knowing
A shared identity

Beneath the outer shell
Of skin and bone
Ancestor voices
We don’t walk alone

We’re sharing our stories
And our memories
We lay the bare
The essence of life’s mystery

Threads come together
To form a tapestry
Of beauty, deep feeling
And rich conplexitity

The way that I see it
We’re all rainbow people
The way that I see it
We’re shining with life

The way that I see it
We’re all rainbow people
The way that I see it
We’re shining with life

Sombala ba rumba
U mauil chi jiem
Chippu kakilambu
U musti jump in

Sisters in rhythm
Brothers in time
Three against four
Isn’t fine

From the 53 countries
Of the african beat
Senegal, Mali, Gambia
Just to name three

Connections of all people
As we share a common ring
North, south, east west
Sharing as we sing

The way that I see it
We’re all rainbow people
The way that I see it
We’re shining with life

The way that I see it
We’re all rainbow people
The way that I see it
We’re shining with life

Healing vibrations
Are soothing my soul
The power of music
Connecting us all

Sounds of the drums
Bass on tone slap
Weave through your body
You can’t hold it back

History of slavery
And wars over race
On this one planet
We share the same space

Just stand up for justice
Let your voice be strong
Drum call for freedom
Take part in the song

The way that I see it
We’re all rainbow people
The way that I see it
We’re shining with life

The way that I see it
We’re all rainbow people
The way that I see it
We’re shining with life

The way that I see it
We’re all rainbow people
The way that I see it
We’re shining with life

The way that I see it
We’re all rainbow people
The way that I see it
We’re shining with life
