She taught us to dance to the sacred music
‘taught us respect for every tribe
‘taught us to question the power
(said) do not enlist and don’t subscribe

you’re only beginning, you’ve only begun

‘tried to keep us safe from falling
while she pushed us to the edge
tried to be a full-grown woman
while we were sleeping in our beds

(she said) you know there are no stupid questions
only fools who like to speak
try to break through your restrictions
see how far your soul can reach

you’re only beginning, you’ve only begun
you’re only beginning to become

it’s ‘gonna be the most you see
it’s gonna grow farther than you or me
gotta trust it, put your faith in it
never try and question when
you’re gonna step in it

she’s a raging river, she’s a storm at sea
she’s an arrow in the quiver of the warrior in me
sweeter than an apple, right off the tree
‘does her pollen dance, for the other honey bees

her strength is my razor, this faith is my gun
‘don’t believe in your borders, or television tongues
take away all this metal, take away all this noise
take away all this shrapnel, and all these war toys
because we’re only beginning, we’ve only begun
this song is beginning to be sung
