  1. To the Girl

From the albums To the Girl and To the Girl

In cart Not available Out of stock

Wanting my younger self to know that all would be well, To the Girl became a love letter to myself during chapters of challenge and change. “All the strands are being woven and tossed….”

Lyrics

To the girl who ran with the wind
Who opened wide the doors to the world
Not knowing to close a window
A mistake could shake the earth

Hold on, all the strands are being woven and tossed
You do not—you cannot—know just yet
The tapestry unfolds for you in time

To the young woman full of promise
Ready to rattle power’s gate
Your heart has been laid bare
Always searching, wanting more

Hold on, all the strands are being woven and tossed
You do not—you cannot—know just yet
The tapestry unfolds for you in time

To the young mother saying hello then goodbye
And hello again
To untold joy and pride
Trying not to lose herself on the ride
How not to lose yourself on the ride?

Then the woman in her middle years
She walks through wonder and tears
Somehow finding her voice in the midst of pain
The vast promise of challenge and change

Hold on, all the strands are being woven and tossed
You do not—you cannot—know just yet
The tapestry unfolds for you in time

I wish you peace
I wish you peace
I wish you peace
I wish you peace
