Lyrics

Footsteps within footsteps, only women come this way
Walking with women for the woman with a baby on the way
Under the shade of the trees the roots grow to the path
Bringing her to sacred water and the birthing cave at last

Aunties all those aunties holding space for when it’s time
For when a woman becomes a mother
Sacred space, between time, is where she crosses the line

Fire is kindled in the inner sanctuary
Smoke drifts up through the rock holes created by ancient seas
And the ancient mother’s voice echoes through the years
As she sings her birthing song to bring this life anew

Aunties all those aunties holding space for when it’s time
For when a woman becomes a mother
Sacred space, between time, is where she crosses the line

Baby’s born where babies are born
For thousands and thousands and thousands of years… thousands of years…

Aunties all those aunties holding space for when it’s time
For when a woman becomes a mother
Sacred space, between time, is where she crosses the line
