  1. Another Wave

From the album No Time for Silence

In cart Not available Out of stock

Another Wave was written days after Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement from the Supreme Court. I feared that his replacement would not be sympathetic to women’s issues, most especially women’s reproductive rights. We finished recording the song the week that the Kavanaugh hearings began and released the song as a single ahead of the rest of the EP. This song is also the rallying cry for every woman who has a #metoo story suffering silently. This is your time to make waves!

Lyrics

Another Wave
© Beth Schafer, 2018

There’s another wave of women opening their eyes
Another wave of women sweeping the land
There’s another wave of women compassionate and wise
Another wave of women joining hands

There’s another wave of women speaking truth to power
Another wave of women rising in song
There’s another wave of women emerging from the dark
Another wave of women standing strong

Oh, oh here we come
Oh, oh here we come

There’s another wave of women who have a tale to tell
Another wave of women finding their voice
There’s another wave of women crawling out of hell
Another wave of women making noise

Oh, oh here we come
Oh, oh here we come

There’s another wave of women marching up the hill
Another wave of women praying with their feet
There’s another wave of women with men who share their will
Another wave of women in the streets

Oh, oh here we come (another wave, another wave, another wave)
Oh, oh here we come (another wave, another wave, another wave)
Oh, oh here we come (another wave, another wave, another wave)
Oh, oh here we come (another wave, another wave, another wave)
