about

I wrote this track for a film my friend Chelo Alvarez created called Sold in America, about human trafficking and sex slaves. Chelo has dedicated her life to help give voice to the women who have suffered and continue to suffer. It was my honor to write this song for the film. If you are a woman, you are a survivor, a butterfly rising above, like the lotus rising above the mud. My deep bow to you, my solidarity as we stand together advocating for our freedom, and the freedom of our daughters, mothers, sisters, and the whole lineage of women who have been victimized by sexual, emotional, psychological abuse. Time is up. #metoo

lyrics

A butterfly that soars above the weather
A broken wing could not stop
To fly beyond
It makes it better to sing on
Sing on, sing, sing, sing on

Nobody can rob my soul
It belongs to no one
It’s no one’s but my own
Ashes to ashes
It’s a new world

We can talk about the weather
We do so well faking it all
To fly beyond
It makes it better to sing on
Sing on, sing, sing, sing on
We can take a tragedy that belongs to no one
And make it our own
We can be made to feel so very small

Noche de paz, noche de fuego
Noche de oscuridad, noche de juego mortal
Oyes las palabras, no te dicen nada
Sientes los sonidos como espadas

I’m a butterfly that soars above the weather
A broken wing could not stop
To fly beyond
It makes it better to sing on
Sing on, sing, sing, sing on

Nobody can rob my soul
It belongs to no one
It’s no one’s but my own
Ashes to ashes
It’s a new world
