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
