Song Meaning
Verse 1
There is a woman in Somalia
Scraping for pearls by the roadside
There is a force stronger than nature
Keeps her will alive
Verse 2
That is how she lives her life
She is dying to survive
I don't know what she's made of
But I would like to be that brain
Verse 3
She cries to the heavens above
There's 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
And it hurts like brand new shoes
Verse 4
There is a woman in Rwanda
The sun shows her no mercy
The same sky we lay under
It burns her to the bone
Verse 5
Long is afternoon shadows
It's gonna take her to get home
Each gray carefully wrapped up
Pearls for her little girl
Verse 6
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Verse 7
She cries to the heavens above
There's 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
And it hurts like brand new shoes
Verse 8
There was a woman in Somalia
There was a woman in Rwanda
There was a woman in Sudan
There is a woman in a Congo
And she hurts like brand new shoes
Verse 9
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Ohhh
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
[African words sung]
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
