Lyrics

In a cabin by the woods under brutal winter skies
Her Momma sits on the couch and doesn't speak most times
She walks the children to school on the dirt road every day
Her life shows her no mercy living this way

The sound of trees blowing in the wind
The memory of daddy playing banjo and drinking gin
At seventeen she holds her pain deeply inside
And has no time to be young only time to survive

Her dreams are on hold to keep her family alive
She’s like a sparrow and wishes she had wings to fly
Wearing a crown of courage all of her days
The world moves on but this woman stays

She cries herself to sleep with questions every night
There’s no one for miles to help her win this fight
Slowly the truth appears before her eyes
Unveiling the answer as she discovers the lies

Her dreams are on hold to keep her family alive
She’s like a sparrow and wishes she had wings to fly
Wearing a crown of courage all of her days
The world moves on but this woman stays

Although it’s not the life she chose
She knows her story still needs to be told
She looks around herself and faces
The danger that is about to unfold

Her dreams are on hold to keep her family alive
She’s like a sparrow and wishes she had wings to fly
Wearing a crown of courage all of her days
The world moves on but this woman stays
