Give Me My Birth Back
Lyrics & Melody by Polly Wood & Tara Greenblatt ©1993

 

GIVE ME MY BIRTH BACK

Give me my birth back

Give me my scars

I release the birth that I've held in so far.

 

I'll take my voice back.

I'll take my scars.

I release the birth that I've held in so far.

 

The left my mama with a scar.

They cut away her pear.

Let me take her pain away 

If she's not aware.

 

Let me struggle with you 

Oh woman by my side.

Weeping mother-daughter 

Together we'll be wide.

 

I'll take my voice back

I'll take her pain.

I'll struggle for her scars 

And dance them in the rain.

 

Weeping mother-daughter 

They cut away our pear.

Free yourself, let me hear

Your tears for what's not there.
