about

inspired by brave women i know and a book by virginia woolf

lyrics

she looked out across the harbor
they packed their things in plastic bags
she read books about the ocean
this radio will be handy in distress

in Panama the air was heavy
they waited for the ships to pass
30 days of stagnant water
batten down the hatches raise the flags
raise the flags

I've been around the world, you think i'm just a girl,
i've been ambassador, the king owes me favors

nothing but the cold horizon
16 hours to man the helm
some girls dream a man will find them
you woke up to find yourself

I've been around the world, you think i'm just a girl,
i've been ambassador, the king owes me favors

we’ve moved on, now we’re strong
we’ve moved on, now we’re strong

we can pave the way
for the daughters who’ve never seen
mothers drawing plans for a battle,
her hand on a bible swearing,
trumpets blaring

I've been around the world, you think i'm just a girl,
i've been ambassador, the king owes me favors

we’ve moved on, now we’re strong
we’ve moved on, now we’re strong
we’ve moved on, now we’re strong
we’ve moved on, now we’re strong
