lyrics

Like A Woman

My mother wakes up every day
6AM with no complaint
Tired eyes, but wide awake
Oh, she’s working hard

My mother stands up, an educator
Most days kids pretend to hate her
Wear her down but it don’t phase her
Cause mama stands with God

Never mind that she walked with me inside her 9 months
And let me leech on her love, this little boy

For the strength that this is
Now I am envious
Of the creature,
A Woman,
Teach me

To be as much like a woman
As I possibly can be
Be as tough as a woman
Wear my heart upon my sleeve
I want to fight like a woman
I want to own what I believe
Be as brave as a woman
Lift my faith to the women who carry us all

Our mothers had to break free of lesser roles
Change the story they’d been told
Heal the wounds of hands they’d hold
Oh, they’ve done it all

Our mothers pulled men through history
Then worked beside them silently
And when men died, they’d fill the seat
So how’d we disregard?

Never mind that each time they were denied their equal rights
They’d get back in that ring and fight another round

The resilience I’ve seen
Untold in history
Is the creature,
A woman,
Teach me


To be as much like a woman
As I possibly can be
Be as tough as a woman
Wear my heart upon my sleeve
I want to fight like a woman
I want to own what I believe
Be as brave as a woman
Lift my faith to the women who carry us all

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

I’ll be as much like a woman
as i can be
Be as tough as a woman
God almighty
I want to make love like a woman
But I ain't worthy
And I can't know what it’s like to create a life
Inside of me

I’ll be as much like a woman
As I possibly can be
Be as tough as a woman
Wear my heart upon my sleeve
I want to fight like a woman
I want to own what I believe
Be as brave as a woman
Lift my faith to the women who carry us all

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

My mother wakes up everyday
6AM with no complaint
Tired eyes, but wide awake
Oh, she's working hard
