“Bring Me Back My Women”
Listen to Bring Me Back My Women:
Ali wrote this song as a response to the sexual violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Take a moment to reflect on her lyrics:
Bring me back to meI would wake each new dayEmpty shell to shell to feedBring me back my womanBring me back to meThrough I feel the sun’s warmthBlood runs cold through meYou would stalk your preyYour eyes cease to seeI would fetch the waterYou tear my woman from meBring me back my womanBring me back to meThough I feel the sins warmthBlood runs cold through meTogether we will be hereIn our UnityThrough they took our womanOur voices will speakBring me back my woman bring me back to meThrough I fell the suns warmthBlood runs cold through me.
