lyrics

Sing Your Song

You heard a voice inside your heart when you were a little girl
You sang it and you danced it and you shone it like a pearl
And you would not give it up for all the riches in the world
So baby sing, cuz you got the eyes to see

And then they tried to take your voice with insults, rape, and lies
And then instead of melodies your throat was filled with cries
But now my dear your time has come, you learned that you ain't shy

So mama sing, cuz you got the eyes to see
Inside you is a window, and oh, it's open wide
The music of your life and everything you adore
Is pouring out, and we wanna hear more

So baby, sing your song
Of all the places you've explored when in your heart a lion roared
Sing your song
There's a treasure in your lungs and it was meant to be sung

The earth is filled with riches that sing to your open ears
That tell you stories deep and close that no one else can hear
And so your mountain rises, flashing in the face of fear
Oh baby sing, cuz you got the eyes to see and the ears to hear

The people, dear, are hurting, and blindly limp along
Building precious towers on foundations that are wrong
And when they fall and dash our hopes we need a purer song
So baby sing, cuz you got the eyes to see and the voice, the voice, the voice

Inside you is a window, And oh, it's open wide
The music of your life and everything you adore
Is pouring out, and we wanna hear more

So baby sing your song
Every path that you've explored when in your heart a lion roared
Sing your song
You've got a message to bring so baby get up and sing
There's a treasure in your lungs and it was meant to be sung
I never felt so strong as when I heard you sing your song
