Parole e musica di Holly Near
Nell’album “Cris & Holly”, con Cris Williamson

“Long-time friends, Cris Williamson and Holly Near combine their powerful voices on twelve songs of love and world peace.” (introduzione all’album dal sito dell’autrice)
I am open and I am willing
To be hopeless would seem so strange
It dishonors those who go before us
So lift me up to the light of change

There is hurting in my family
There is sorrow in my town
There is panic in the nation
There is wailing the whole world round

May the children see more clearly
May the elders be more wise
May the winds of change caress us
Even though it burns our eyes

Give me a mighty oak to hold my confusion
Give me a desert to hold my fears
Give me a sunset to hold my wonder
Give me an ocean to hold my tears
