lyrics

Woman Child © Peggy van Zalm

She, that one, that desert child
She’s got something ancient in her eyes
and she touched down from out of town
Stretching her wings and her heart
and speaking out loud

No place can hold her not for long ah ha ahh

The sun and the moon and the stars they all come out for her
They’re satellites in the orbit of a natural wonder
No love can hold her, the living desert it sings to her

Woman child
staying free and wild
woman child, woman child

So you want to go with her she started a fire
but friend remember wilderness is her desire
and love can hold her
the living desert it sings for her
no place can hold her
the living desert like a spring for her

Woman child
staying free and wild
woman child, woman child
red dirt wanderer with a wide-eyed smile
woman child
