lyrics

I am my mother's daughter
The one with her head in the clouds
Trying to find my footing here on the ground
She says the world isn't sweet enough to girls like us

All I hear is child, you're not strong enough

I am my father's daughter
The one with all of the answers
Planning for the days ahead
Instead of living the days at hand
He tells me that I shouldn't, that I can't and that he wouldn't

All I hear is child, you're not good enough
All I hear is child, you're not good enough

But I'm a fighter like my father
Fighting the fight of my life
And I'm a lover taught my mother
To endlessly love one another
And I'm a warrior like my brother
Waging a war of my own
And I'm a voice unlike any that I've ever known
I am my own

I am my brother's sister
The one keeping all of the hurt
Layin awake at night thinkin this can't be my life
He tells me that he can't
He ain't livin, he ain't tryin

All I hear is child, I'm not brave enough
All I hear is child, I'm not brave enough

But you're a fighter like our father
Fighting the fight of your life
And you're a lover taught by our mother
To endlessly love one another
And you're a warrior, oh my brother
Waging a war all alone
And you are unlike any that I've ever known

Oh my brother
You are unlike any I have ever known
You are my own
