FYC ~ STAR SEEDS

BEST AMERICANA PERFORMANCE

 

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING...

"You stole my heart immediately with your soulful sound! I appreciate your lyrics so much, but then it's all delivered with grace, beautiful voice, rich harmonies and instrumentation! - Danaë Vlasse, Grammy Award Winning Composer

"With a sound almost woven out of the earth, Reich sings from the brittle openings of the heart. To take in the art that comes from such a place opens up our lives in ways that are impossible to measure but so important to hold onto." - James Diaz, Anti-Heroin Chic Magazine.

Her deep roots in traditional folk and story-telling shine through each and every one of her original works. Ira Gordon—Host of Santa Fe's KBAC radio—calls Martha "the closest thing to Joni Mitchell that Santa Fe has.” 

Each song, a story. Each story, poetry. - Barbara Salvatore, Author, Artist 
Big Horse Woman and Magghie

THE STORY BEHIND 'STAR SEEDS'

This song was inspired by the experiences of one man’s life. 
His sense of not feeling understood and accepted as an artistic intuitive, led to a period of depression and addiction, until he discovered his soul healing through a path of spirituality. This inspiring journey to wholeness ignited his desire to help and nurture others to realize their full potential. It is my hope that this song of heartfelt collaboration will touch those who feel a connection to this real life story, and bring hope, healing and a knowing that they are not alone.

LYRICS ~ STAR SEEDS

I’m addicted to love and lust 
soothe my dreams with magic and dust 
and all that sparkles in the sky 
It took me awhile, to love my sweet child 
but now that I do, she’s my indigo blue 

And I say deep in your soul 
you’re perfectly whole 
as beautiful as a tree 
And I hear him playing my songs 
telling us all along 
you and I are just, just star seeds 

And we were born pure 
we were born pretty flowers 
we were born to fly to the sun 
and find our magic hour 

Yes I knew how to run 
and I knew how to hide 
shoot myself in the arm 
hurt so bad I wish I could die 
And now I just want to win 
this war with the blues 
cause I’ve been there before 
and this time, please don’t let me lose 

Cause I’ll plant trees in the woods 
past the rocks and the streams 
climb desert mountains 
follow moon dreams 

Just let me thank her 
for all that’s she’s done 
I think she’d be proud of me 
look how far that I’ve come 
Don’t know how she saw me 
pull me up from the crowd 
Don’t know she heard me 
guess I was crying, crying out loud 

I’ll grow trees in the sand 
and pretty flowers wherever I am 
to show you how I love you 
the best that I can 
show you how I love you, 
best that I can
