Bravebird

This song is by Amel Larrieux and appears on the album Bravebird (2004).

In a land far away, where the sun doesn't spare a soul
And a twisted tradition has a girl in a stranglehold,
Lies a desert with the footprints of little girls with a secret
Of a pain that you and I could never know...

Little feet running fast as they can, like the bird in flight,
Through days of sand with a fire in the sky, and through Indigo nights
She runs away from a life spent being witness to other unwilling participants
Of a pain that you and I could never know...

You're a bravebird (bravebird...) of the rarest kind; (kind...)
You may be one of the walking wounded, but still you fly...
You're a bravebird (bravebird...) - you put yourself on the line;
When you shared your secret with the world, you saved another mother's child...

As she speaks, you can tell that the words are not easy to say;
They hold the power to transport her back to that impossible day...
But she hasn't any regrets, 'cause she won't become a woman with a secret
Of a pain that you and I could never know...
You and I could never know...
That you and I could never know...

You're a bravebird (bravebird...) of the rarest kind; (kind...)
You may be one of the walking wounded, but still you fly...
You're a bravebird (bravebird...) - you put yourself on the line;
When you shared your secret with the world, you saved another mother's child...

You're a bravebird... a bravebird,
Flying high in the sky...
Bravebird...
