Lyrics
She Still Sings
Copyright 2002, by Kate Carpenter

Her melody’s rising into the wind from the black and the gray and the white
Cocking her head to the heavens, she sings as if all in her world is right.
But ev’ry frayed feather has a story to tell. She dodged the hawk and escaped,
Chased those raiders out of her nest, surviving one more day….and

CHORUS: She still sings. She still sings.
Her tail is tattered. Her babies, gone.
Her nest’s a mem’ry, but she goes on and she still sings.

“So long, Sweetheart. I’ll see you tonight.” They hugged in the dawn’s early gloom.
He boarded the train to work in the tower that terror turned into a tomb.
Her heart split open; he never came home. They finally recovered his ring.
She cradles his baby, bearing the name of a daddy he’ll never hear sing.

But she still sings. She still sings.
Her home is shattered; her husband, gone
Their love’s a mem’ry but she goes on and she still sings.

BRIDGE: Sorrow cannot not choke me,
Though everything goes wrong.
They cannot take away my faith.
They’ll never steal my song.

I’m listening now for the song of the bird, delight in the voice of a child.
And hope’s born new in every day when someone chooses to smile.
Standing together, we’re praying again: “O God, will you please make us strong?”
Overcoming evil with good, no one can silence our song, (cuz)

We still sing. We still sing.
We’re bruised; we’re battered, but we stand strong
Spirits rising, yes, we go on, and we still sing. (Repeat)
Extended Keywords: She Still Sings is a song of hope and faith in the midst of tragedy. It begins with the story of a mockingbird whose nest was attacked, but she still sings. Verse 2 is about a woman whose husband was killed in the WTC in NYC, and she still sings a lullabye to the baby who will never know his daddy. "Sorrow cannot choke me, " declares the bridge, "They cannot take away my faith...never steal my song." Finally the singer declares that she will listen to the bird, delight in the child, and work & pray to overcome evil with good
