A note from Barbra :

This collection of songs reflects what’s been on my mind lately.

These are troubling times, and I felt compelled to add my voice to the dialogue some of us have been having. Many of the fundamental principles of democracy and freedom we’ve always taken for granted – freedom of the press, freedom of speech, freedom of expression – are eroding at an alarming rate. Even basic human decency appears to be melting away faster than the polar ice caps. I wanted to write and sing about some of these things… not only to convey my concerns, but also to state my belief that, if we remain vigilant to the truth, things can eventually turn around.

In the past year we’ve seen the very worst of humanity… and the very best. In the face of unimaginable natural disasters and unspeakable human cruelty, there have been many acts of kindness and courage to remind us of who we have the potential to be when we listen to the better angels of our nature.

I’ve been especially moved by the millions of young people in the United States and around the world who have found their collective voice and are demanding to be heard. They are more interested in building bridges than walls. They are the very definition of hope. They’re on my mind… and I dedicate this album to them.

With love and light

Lady Liberty
Lift your lamp of hope a little higher
Burn that flame of freedom just a little brighter, please
For all the world to see and still believe

Oh, Lady Liberty
Show us how to stand and feel a little prouder
As the anthem plays let's sing
And raise our voices even louder
Since the real danger lies in the sound of silence

Lady Liberty
I see you rise above the crashing waves
Bearing with us to our darkest days
Like that terrible September
When we stopped and cried together
Remember?

Lady Liberty
Give me your tired and your poor
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore
Send these, the homeless, the tempest tossed to me, to me

So lift your lamp and lead us through the golden door
Tell the whole damn universe there’s room for all of us and more
Forever

Lady Liberty, my country 'tis of thee
Lady Liberty, for all the world to see
Please, Lady Liberty
