I know a woman who feels every moment
With sorrow and joy, she is blown by the wind
Her heart moves so quickly, it tires her to follow
But this world wasn’t made for such sensitive things

And I want to sing her a song that will free her
To feel what she feels without judgment or shame
All of her power right beside all her pain

And I know a mother who cannot remember
She died to the dreams she once carried inside
And she raised a daughter who cannot forgive her
For failing to lead her with wings into life

And I want to sing her a song that redeems her
For all that she is that she hasn’t become
As she lived for her father then husband then son

And Eve, blessed mother of all of creation
They punished you when you reached out for the truth
And all of this violence we witness toward women
Is the shame we still carry for wanting the fruit

And I want to sing her a song that will bring her
Into a world where her reach can be wide
Free to take what she wants and to never be shy

We find ourselves weeping in small quiet moments
Caught with no reason to feel so alone
They tell us our sadness is private depression
But our mother’s submission is centuries old

And I want to sing you a song that receives you
As you wake to a world where you’re second to none
Where your life is your song and your song will be sung
