The last song for FAWM 2017. Just managed to squeeze this one in before the deadline. Wonderful lyrics again written by Elizabeth Petty.

Lyrics


Enough (Cement Shoes)

V1
working two jobs
raise three children
fighting back the tears
when she is hurting

taking the hits
trying to stay married
ignoring all the pain
that she has carried

PC
and now she has had enough
no... more...strength.... to stay tough....

C
she's got cement shoes on
walking in the water
somebody's mother
somebody's daughter

she's got cement shoes on
treading in the water
its the only option
that life has taught her

and the water drowns her tears...

V2
sitting at home
watch the window
feeling all alone
since she's a widow

missing her kids
knowing that they are busy
waiting for their call
she grows more lonely

PC
and now she has had enough
all... the.. sadness... is too much.....

C
she's got cement shoes on
walking in the water
somebody's mother
somebody's daughter

she's got cement shoes on
treading in the water
its the only option
that life has taught her

and the water drowns her tears....

B
waves of women
broken battered
still crash against a shore
waves of women
empty forgotten
will haunt us evermore



C
they've got cement shoes on
walking in the water
somebody's mother
somebody's daughter

they've got cement shoes on
treading in the water
that is the only option
that life has taught them

and the water drowns their tears....
