about

I Am
This may be one of the oldest songs in my unpublished catolog. I wrote I Am, coming out of a meditation about 17 years ago during my rites of passage.I was driving home when a melody began to tap itself out on my steering wheel. When I arrived home I grabbed my berimbau and I Am was born. AT this point in its growing up it feels real rootsy and down home juke joint. I've had a few people tell me they hear Zydeko influences in it.

lyrics

I Am
By Ama Chandra

Do you know where I'm going
Do you know what I'll see
Do you know where I'm going
Do you know what I'll see,
I Said
Do you know where I'm going
Do you know what I'll see
mmmm
Do you know where I'm going
Do you know what I'll see
I'm going to a Lotus Blossom and I will be free
I'm going to a Lotus Blossom and I'm giving birth to me
Birth to me

Do you know where I'm going
Do you know what I'll be
Do you know where I'm going
Do you know what I'll be
I’m going to a Lotus Blossom and I am giving birth to me, yes
I’m going to a Lotus Blossom
And when I get to the Lotus Blossom I’ll be free
I will be free

I am that I am
I am that I am
mmmmmm

I am that I am
I am that I am
Let me tell you
I am that I am
I am that I am

I am that I am
I am that I am

See My mother is the womb and
My father is the seed
And when the sun touched down on the earth it gave birth to me
See my mother is the womb
My father is the seed and
When the sun touched down on the earth it gave birth to me

See I am a sacred woman
I've found my divinity
I gave birth in the lotus blossom and now I am free
I am a sacred woman
I have found my divinity
I gave birth in the lotus blossom and now I am free
I'm going to a Lotus Blossom and I will be free
I’m going to a Lotus Blossom
When I get to the Lotus Blossom I be free

I will be free
Completely free
I'm going to the lotus blossom
I'm giving birth to me
I'm going to the lotus blossom
And I yes I am free
Said I am free
Completely free
I am free
Completely free
I was going to the lotus blossom
I was birth to me.
I was to going to the little blossom
and now, yes now, I'm free.
Yes I am free
Completely free.
I am free
Completely free.
I was to going to the little blossom
I was giving birth to me
I was going to the little blossom
And now, Yes Now I’m free
I am free
Completely free
