PEARLS – Lyrics:

There is a woman in Somalia 
Scraping for pearls by the roadside
There is a force stronger than nature
Keeps her will alive

That is how she keeps her life
She is dying to survive 
I don’t know what she’s made of
I would like to be that brave

She cries to the heavens above
There is a stone in my heart 
She lives a life she didn’t choose 
And it hurts like brand new shoes

Yes it hurts like brand new shoes

There is a woman in Rwanda
There is a woman in South Africa
Another woman in Uganda
Respect the woman in Nigeria

She cries to the heavens above
There is a stone in my heart
She lives a life she didn’t choose
And it hurts like brand new shoes

Yes it hurts like brand new shoes

She cries she cries 
To the heavens above

There’s a stone in my heart
.. Heart..

Yes it hurts like brand new shoes

Oh yes it hurts like brand new shoes..
