Track Name: tiny hands
What have you seen in your short long life?
Where did those tiny feet roam?
All the things you have done, on top of being a wife
A mother, a daughter, a home

What have you seen in your short long life?
What has your heart overcome?
The traditional ways that are hidden away
Can be revived by the beat of a drum.

What have you seen in your short long life?
What did those tiny hands do?
Stretching, scraping, fixing and making,
Mending the skins that our souls fit within,
Stitching nothing can undo.

What have you seen in your short long life?
What has your heart overcome?
The traditional ways that are hidden away
Can be revived by the beat of a drum.

What have you seen in your short long life
A witness to so many wrongs
Relocation, damnation, missinformation,
Summation: our Nation's still strong.

What have you heard in your short long life?
When did they silence your voice?
The stories they spun
Made you swallow your tongue,
Made you feel like it was your choice.

What have you seen in your short long life?
What has your heart overcome?
The traditional ways that are hidden away
Can be revived by the beat of a drum.
