Wake Again, Life is calling to you
Guitar plays Em throughout
History & Lore
Wake Again is a meditation on finding our way back from the Isle of Apples on Samhain, even as the Faeries try to lure us away from returning to our loved ones back home in the gradual, gentle waking back into this life.
As the Faeries try to lure us from our work together at the Spiral Dance, we sing: Wake Again, Wake Again, Wake Again, Life is calling to you….
We sang this as a gathering song at San Francisco Spring Equinox 2016, right before the album came out. The crowd was naturally in two large clumps, and we got a call/response going.
For the recording, we also saw this as a gathering song – the ritual is over, the dessert dishes are washed, and the faeries are calling us to the late-night bonfire.
