 (by Amanda Nusbaum)

Cree Summer moved to Los Angeles to seek stardom and start her career as a singer, just like the dream of every struggling artist. She released her first album on WORK records in 1999. Street Faerie is a vibrant mixture of emotions and styles, from the changing euphorias of "Soul Sister" and "Deliciously Down" to the electric blues of the Lenny Kravitz duet "Mean Sleep." Summer's first tour was playing the 1999 Lilith Fair.

Street FaŽrie

Revelation Sunshine

Did you see was I obvious
Could you tell I did try to hide it
We can't have can we try just to share
I did try to take it

When I look I see you in me
I don't want to fight it
Shelter us from the storm
It's so warm I get lost inside it

Out of my mind
Into yours
Out of my mind
Into yours

Take it slow we got time to find it
We don't have to chase it
Got no push got no shove
We just got love we don't have to force it

Out of my mind
Into yours
Out of my mind
Into yours

We got change it's changing all the time
You got yours and I got mine
Promise me that you won't promise me
Revelation sunshine because I'm

Out of my mind
Into yours
Out of my mind
Into yours

Love
Love is
Love is all
Love is all around
Love is all around us
Love is all around us look
Love is all around us look around

Miss Moon

My blood came today, I am so heavy
Turning upside down don't make me young with wonder
And I don't believe
There's  a man in the moon
All I see is the fullness of you

My blood came today
I am swollen and ripe
I don't want nobody
Telling me what's right

My blood came today
I don't care what you say
I'm gonna play I'll fly away
To where my love is laughing

I don't believe
There's  a man in the moon
All I see is the fullness of you

I won't hang out in between your thoughts
Outrun your mouth try to thaw you out
I'm not sorry for the fire that's inside my heart
i'll be howling
In the dark
For
Miss Moon

Still Heart

Couldn't find where to rub myself
I didn't want to close my eyes
I would scream just to shake myself
Just to wake myself inside

Broken into human parts I was sheltered by his chin
Lives spent in wet cement underneath his skin

Still on my neck the breath of the dead
Even as blood and bone
I can tolerate a still heart
But I can't stand being alone

Open me up anywhere you wish
Take out anything you like
Seal me up when you're through
Leave a little room for surprise
Made myself new one too many times
To swallow his breath away
I left too much space upon my back
To ever make him want to stay

Still on my neck the breath of the dead
Even as blood and bone
I can tolerate a still heart
But I can't stand being alone

Deliciously Down

I need some sweet to soothe my inside
I need somesoft to lay down my pride
I need some tears to rain down on me
To melt my memory

I need to slide deliciously down
To where I hurt the least

I need high prayers to breathe through
I need to shine like I used to and I
Know that I'm not supposed to be for nothing

I need a breeze to carry me safe
I need some peace to find my way
I need a song to hold in my palm
And feel the love that made me

I need to slide deliciously down
To where I hurt the least

I need high prayers to breathe through and I
Need to shine like I used to and I
Know that I'm not supposed to be for nothing

I need some love to open my heart
I need a space to fall apart
I need a star for every dream
Do you know what I mean

I need to slide deliciously down
To where I hurt the least

Mean Sleep

Lenny Kravitz
What can we scrape together
With just the flesh as evidence
Handfuls of hate
And the bittersweet ambivalence

Lenny Kravitz & Cree Summer
'Cos I am pushin' cobwebs
And I'm folding into myself

Lenny Kravitz
Who will find me under this mean sleep

Cree Summer
How could the clouds tease us into thinking it might rain ?
How could the need deceive us into thinking things might change ?

Lenny Kravitz & Cree Summer
I had a mean, mean sleep over you
And it hurts, hurts coming back to life

Lenny Kravitz
You could burn a thousand days
And I would need no other light
You could die a thousand ways
And I'd still love you back to life

Lenny Kravitz & Cree Summer
But my needs rising angry
And my loneliness like quicksand

Lenny Kravitz
Who will find me under this mean sleep

Cree Summer
How could the clouds tease us into thinking it might rain ?
How could the need deceive us into thinking things might change ?

Lenny Kravitz & Cree Summer
I had a mean, mean sleep over you
And it hurts, hurts coming back to life

Lenny Kravitz & Cree Summer
I had a mean, mean sleep over you
And it hurts, hurts coming back to life

Lenny Kravitz & Cree Summer
I am lost to the longing
I am moulded by the memory

Lenny Kravitz
Had to shut down half my mind

Lenny Kravitz & Cree Summer
Just to still the space you left behind

Lenny Kravitz & Cree Summer
'Cos I am pushin' cobwebs
And I'm folding into myself

Lenny Kravitz
Who will find me under this mean sleep

Cree Summer
How could the clouds tease us into thinking it might rain ?
How could the need deceive us into thinking things might change ?

Lenny Kravitz & Cree Summer
I had a mean, mean sleep over you
And it hurts, hurts coming back to life

Lenny Kravitz
Coming back to life

Cree Summer
I had a mean sleep

Lenny Kravitz & Cree Summer
I had a mean, mean sleep over you

Lenny Kravitz & Cree Summer
I had a mean sleep

Lenny Kravitz & Cree Summer
And it hurts, hurts coming back to life

Lenny Kravitz
Coming back to life

Lenny Kravitz & Cree Summer
I had a mean, mean sleep over you

Lenny Kravitz & Cree Summer
I had a mean sleep

Lenny Kravitz & Cree Summer
And it hurts, hurts coming back to life

Lenny Kravitz
Coming back to life yeah

( Repeat 'til the end )

*** Thanx a lot to Cťline for this one and to Igor who corrected her mistakes ***

Life Goes On

You must think like goes on forever
The way you bide your time
The way you talk too much
The way you stop trying

You believe life goes on forever
The way that the sun sets
The way you feed the fear
The way that you regress

Life after life goes on until it bors you to a death
Even more frightening than being alive
You pretend life goes on forever and a day wasting away

You must think like goes on forever
The way you let it slip away
The way you hide the way you feel
The way you don't feel what you say

Life after life goes on down the road you've walked before
Catering to the complacent habit forming insecure

May the circle be unbroken
By and by Lord
By and by

You must think life goes on forever
The way you stay the very same
Life forever pass it on won't you tell your friends
To keep running to the future
While running from the end
The end

Fall

I'm browning, I'm wrinkling, you don't see
I shrivel more into colors you ignore
As the earth swallows me
You crush the fire red

Standing on my head you crush the fire red
Leaving me for dead
Splendid decay spiraling down to my toes

Yellow wilts holes for you to see through
Crumpled blue my bare pink womb can't shelter you
You crush the fire red

Standing on my head you crush the fire red
Leaving me for dead
Splendid decay spiraling down to my toes

Black stemmed orange trimmed
With the slightest wind I'm falling from you
Dry and loud stained and proud
Like a bursting cloud I'm falling from you

You're so mean when you scream in bright green
In my ear you're loud and clear I can hear
Sunken and gray you used to say I'm not enough for you
I will bleed you a seed to start a new I'm falling from you

Black stemmed orange trimmed
With the slightest wind I'm falling from you
Dry and loud stained and proud
Like a bursting cloud I'm falling from you

Angry Boy

Blending his grin into a sneer
Up to his neck in ancient shit
He'd make a real good military beast
But i'm afraid that's about it
Talking off the wall in a voice to shut you out
Angry boy
He would rather kill than find a cure for it
Poor boy
But she'emm may you down, hold you close
'Neath her wings it's alright she'll take care of you

He stopped looking up at what might have been
He left no room to turn around and change
He's waiting for the panic to set in
He's hunting around for pain

Talking off the wall in a voice to shut you out
Angry boy
He would rather kill than find a cure for it
Poor boy
He's got soft words he will
Slug you with

But she'll lay you down, hold you close
'Neath her wings it's alright she'll take care of you

Sweet Pain

Stuff myself into your reason
I lie real close and cling
I'd get small I'd even crawl
For the madness you would bring

Find comfort in your tangled words
I'd be sharper than your grief
I'd gather up into the dust of all your fears
And live in the corners of what you believe

I'd conjure up a second heart
To house your sweet pain
I'd love you so hard other folks
Won't have to strain to hear
I'd become your shadow
And haunt for just a taste of your want

This sickness is a mutant bliss
It's a slow steady  shrinking into thinking
I'd evaporate without your hate
To remind me I'm still here

I'd conjure up a second heart
To house your sweet pain
I'd love you so hard other folks
Won't have to strain to hear

I'd become your shadow
And haunt for just a taste of your want

More than any other could
I would love you

Smooth My Heart

It's a good journey i'm in no hurry
I can see chaos heading straight for me
Give me the dark night let the sun ignore me
'Cause everything's alright even what ain't good for me

It's a good journey I'm in no hurry
Not looking for handouts don't need no glory
Leave my conditions leave my edges blurry
Got nothing to hold to can't stay gracefully

Make my silence softer
Take the thrill out of my anger
May I sleep through the heat
And wake up a stranger

I'll smooth my heart down long enough
For the world to come around

Naheo

Sister can I tell you that I get so sad
Like I'm grieving for something I've never had
Sister when I'm broken, when you're holding me
It's the child who's crying for the woman
Father can I tell you that I know your fear
'Cause you gave it to me when you brought me here
Father when you're hiding from the light that's inside
Did you know that you're running from the dreamer

Naheo don't lose your indian
That's what he said

Brother can I tell you that I've been the same
When I heard all the yelling I played the game
Brother when I leave you I will eat all your tears
And I'll have you inside when I need you
Mother can you see me, see me clear
Too big to fly and too small to fear
When you're shining you can walk on your hands
Don't you cover your smile when you're laughing

Naheo don't lose your indian
That's what he said

The child who sings the ancient song
On Sandia's back under the sun
With mocassin feet in kokum's shawl
Danking to the heart inside of us all

Lover can I tell you that I get so scared
Like you don't really see me behind your stare
Lover when we are changing
When we are turning inside
Do we heal how we feel
Or do we ride on

Naheo don't lose your indian

Soul Sister

Had a friend once upon a time who had a hunger to learn
Good and bad was all she had and all she was concerned
She found out they were one and the same

The truth don't need to have a name
She loved to share with the moon soon she shared with me
The adventure this life could be
If we just let ourselves be free

She gave me peace of mind
Like a butterfly song to a rainbow shrine
And today feels good

We never answered too much we asked all the time
Why it was always looking and what there was to find
We threw it all into the wind laughter sharing
Me and my best friend

Her voice was fine and it eased my soul
Her face was young but her eyes were old
And magic would unfold
We worship the goddess of the earth

Daughter of life, mother of birth
We belong where the mystic is strong
Humming a butterfly song

And today feels good soul sister

Curious White Boy

Politically Erect
Romanticizing 'bout ancestral innocense
Concience easin' curiousity pleasin'
Slum teasin'

Rude apparatus, crude ego food
Ain't no aphro nor halo
Can pick that cotton out your concience

Inside the petting zoo (Was it good for you?)
Can't hide me in dark, ripe and sinuous places
Curious is the luxury (to be wrong)
White, wrong, still belong
All my jungle'd come out

Curious white boy

When am I gonna meet
Your mamma?
(Met yo' daddy already)

Curious white boy
When am I gonna meet
Your mamma?
(Met yo' daddy already)

Another housekeeper fantasy
Aphro-dite
Topical odd remedy for your hangover from history

I know your daddy and your brother too well
And his friends made me swear I wouldn't tell

Inside the petting zoo (Was it good for you?)
Can't hide me in dark, ripe and sinuous place
Curious is the luxury (to be wrong)
White, wrong, still belong
All my jungle'd come out

Curious white boy

When am I gonna meet
Your mamma?
(Met yo' daddy already)

Curious white boy
When am I gonna meet
Your mamma?
(Met yo' daddy already)

What you so mad about
Always gotta scream and shout
Find a different point it out
Spread your legs and shut your mouth
My virginity hanging from your family tree

Why you so angry?
They just crowned mammie Miss America

Curious white boy
When am I gonna meet
Your mamma?
(Met yo' daddy already)

Curious white boy
When am I gonna meet
Your mamma?
(Met yo' daddy already)

Dirty Love

( Frank Zappa )

Give me 
Your dirty love 
Like you might surrender 
To some dragon in your dreams 

Give me 
Your dirty love 
Like a pink donation 
To the dragon in your dreams 

I don't need your sweet devotion 
'N I don't want your cheap emotion 
Whip me up some dragon lotion 
For your dirty love 

Give me 
Your dirty love 
Like some tacky little pamphlet 
In your daddy's bottom drawer 

Give me 
Your dirty love 
I don't believe you never seen 
His book before 

I don't need no consolation 
I don't want your reservation 
I only got one destination 
An' that's your dirty love 
Your dirty love 

Give me 
Your dirty love 
The way your mama 
Make her fuzzy poodle do 
(Oh, Frenchie) 

Give me 
Your dirty love 
The way your mama 
Make that nasty poodle chew 

I'll ignore your cheap aroma 
And your little-bo-peep diploma 
I'll just put you in a coma 
With some dirty love 
Some dirty love 
Some dirty love 
Some dirty love 

The poodle bites! 
(Come on, Frenchie) 
The poodle chews it! 
(Snap it!) 
The poodle bites! 
(Come on, Frenchie) 
The poodle chews it! 
(Snap it!) 
The poodle bites! 
(Come on, Frenchie) 
The poodle chews it! 
(Snap it!) 
The poodle bites! 
(Come on, Frenchie) 
The poodle chews it! 
(Not a speck of cereal!) 
The poodle bites! 
(Come on, Frenchie) 
The poodle chews it! 
(Nothing but the best for my dog) 
The poodle bites! 
(Come on, Frenchie) 
The poodle chews it! 
(Come on!) 
The poodle bites! 
(Come on, Frenchie) 
The poodle chews it! 
(Little paws sticking up!) 
The poodle bites! 
(Little curly hairs!) 
The poodle chews it! 
(Little curly hairs!) 

Poem of revelation sunshine Live

The dawning tells the dewdrop
The dewdrop tells the flower 
The flower tells the raindrop
The raindrop tells the shower
The shower tells the rainbow
And what do rainbows do ?
They tell the sky
To tell the star
That makes a wish come true
The first star smiles shiling
And very very soon
He tells the other stars
That its time to sprinkle stardust on the moon
The moon then shouts a word away
On wings of wondering wind
They whisper to a bird
The bird begins to sing his song
Tell this world of mine
This whole wide world will waken
Tell the sun to rise and shine
The sunshine shone upon my love
My love so fine to see
My love woke me with a kiss
To tell that he loves me
How then should I tell my love ?
I tell it to the dawn
The dawning tells the dewdrop
And on and on and on

Savior Self

Ever since I was a little girl
In a house made of mud
In a place called Red Pheasant Reservation
I got some Frank Zappa
I was nine years old
He shook me down to my soul
And I knew just what I would do

But the world donít always give you everything
And life ainít always everything you dreamed
Times steady changes
And nothiní really last
And those friends they said theyíd be there
Well thatís in the past.

Ainít nobody gonna save you,
Savior Self.
And your momma she canít save you,
Savior self.

I loved a drummer boy,
Played rock and roll.
I knew this fool would make me whole.
Make Yourself.

Because the world donít always give you everything
And love ainít always what you thought itíd be

Every time you fall somebodyís there
And every time you crawl somebodyís there
And you almost got burned but somebody was there
So you never had to learn 'cause someone was there

Ainít nobody gonna save you,
Savior self.

The Lord canít save you
You better save yourself
Sunshine and everything is so right
Ainít nobody gonna save you.

Your black pearl, your white crow,
Thatís who you got to know.
Terror itís just a small thing
Get ready for the burning, the yearing, the praying
The wishing, the hoping, the dreaming
(Save yourself? Savior self?)

I wish I could save you
But I got to save myself
Ainít nobody gonna save you
(Save yourself? Savior self?)
