India.arie - Pearls

rate me

<BR>

There is a woman in Somalia <br>

Scraping for pearls by the roadside <br>

There is a force stronger than nature <br>

Keeps her will alive <br>

<br>

That is how she lives her life <br>

She is dying to survive <br>

I don't know what she's made of <br>

But I would like to be that brain <br>

<br>

She cries to the heavens above <br>

There's a stone in my heart <br>

She lives a life she didn't choose <br>

And it hurts like brand new shoes <br>

Yes, it hurts like brand new shoes <br>

And it hurts like brand new shoes <br>

<br>

There is a woman in Rwanda <br>

The sun shows her no mercy <br>

The same sky we lay under <br>

It burns her to the bone <br>

<br>

Long is afternoon shadows <br>

It's gonna take her to get home <br>

Each gray carefully wrapped up <br>

Pearls for her little girl <br>

<br>

Hallelujah, Hallelujah <br>

<br>

She cries to the heavens above <br>

There's a stone in my heart <br>

She lives a life she didn't choose <br>

And it hurts like brand new shoes <br>

Yes, it hurts like brand new shoes <br>

And it hurts like brand new shoes <br>

<br>

There was a womanin Somalia <br>

There was a woman in Rwanda <br>

There was a woman in Tibet <br>

There is a woman in a Congo <br>

And she hurts like brand new shoes <br>

<br>

Hallelujah, Hallelujah <br>

Ohhh <br>

Hallelujah, Hallelujah <br>

<i>[African words sung]</i><br>

Hallelujah, Hallelujah <br>

Hallelujah, Hallelujah <br>

Hallelujah, Hallelujah<br>

<BR><BR>
