YOU'RE A WOMAN NOW

Writers: Otep Shamaya/Holly Knight

 

Stars litter the sky

the moon is shining high

this soft September night two lovers creep out of sight

A maiden dressed in white with copper hair

restless for adventure she don’t care that the wolf is in disguise

she’s been ensnared

he got the devil in his eyes and stylish flair

He shoves her to the ground

her soul begins to drown

A sky full of eyes where the stars should be

A sky full of eyes watching silently

 

You’re a woman now

You’ve become a women now

The weight of the cradle has broken the bough

You’ve become a woman now

 

Mama woke me up at dawn

she helped me get my best dress on

She braided flowers in my hair

so sweet was the summer air

I’m to meet my groom down by the sea

a perfect stranger to correct me

the judges arrive in pairs of three

Don’t be scared just relax and breathe

Cause good girls hold real still

Surrender your free will

They cracked the crown to pluck the pearl

here on the jagged edge of the world

 

You’re a woman now

You’ve become a woman now

The weight of the cradle has broken the bough

You’ve become a woman now

 

Standing on the welfare line

my daughter clinging to my side

I see the faith in her eyes

I whisper baby we will be fine

I’ll get a good job and we’ll find a new place

I’ll work real hard and we’ll make our escape

I promise you I will get us through

Together we will bloom

 

You’re a woman now

You’ve become a woman now

The weight of the cradle has broken the bough

You’ve become a woman now

 

You’re a woman now

You’re a woman now

You’re a woman now
