Amel Larrieux – Bravebird lyrics

In a land far away where the sun doesn't spare a soul
And a twisted tradition has a girl in a strangle hold
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 will never know

Your'e 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
You and I could never know
