The Problem


Una toccante canzone sul dialogo di una coppia sulla decisione di abortire. I proventi della canzone saranno devoluti all'associazione Yellowhammer Fund che sostiene il diritto alla scelta delle donne.



Abbiamo indicato in corsivo le parti cantate da Amanda, in grassetto quelle cantate insieme
Remember Katie White?
She jumped the fence that night
She ran away in tears
Your sister drank her beer
We were just eighteen
The older girls could be so mean
I was talking just to talk

You were still in shock

And all I could think to say
Was "Everything's going to be okay
It's going to be alright
I'm on your side"
I'm on your side

What are you gonna do?
I'm scared to even say the truth
This has been the hardest year

Is it even legal here?
I'm trying not to think of names
And will you look at me the same?
Do you need the reasons why?
Is a chrysalis a butterfly?


And all I could think to say
Was "Everything's going to be okay
It's going to be alright

I'm on your side"
I'm on your side

And no one has to know
The scars won't even show
At least that's what I've heard
No bigger than a baby bird (No bigger than a baby bird)
No bigger than a baby bird (No bigger than a baby bird)
Do you think God still sees me?
Coming out of this twilight sleep
I'm not sure who I am

Staring into my empty hands

And all I could think to say
Was "Everything's going to be okay

It's going to be alright
I'm on your side"
I'm on your side

"I’m very grateful to have so many of my sisters joining me for 'Our Problem.' The issue of women’s rights and reproductive health affects us all. 'Our Problem' represents women of all generations, musical genres, and communities. Music has the power to bridge gaps and bring people together and I hope that 'Our Problem' reminds you that we are all in this world together and that we can be there for one another no matter what. You are never alone and I’M ON YOUR SIDE.”
