I am your mother - born of the sun
I gave you shelter - what have you done?
Your heart's in turmoil - my world's in pain
I need to turn you back home again

I am a woman - I am the rain
And like your father - I feel betrayed
What you are doing - can be undone
You know the answers - tell everyone

Respect me, respect me
I need you to protect me
For it is you not me
Whose fate's in jeopardy
Respect me, respect me
I need you to protect me
For it is you not me
That's the part you fail to see

I am the forest - now I'm a tree
The air is dirty - I cannot breathe
My streams run empty - my tears run dry
My children call me - don't let us die

Repeat Chorus

I love my children and I've been your home
But I'll survive this - if I'm alone
I'm a survivor - but you will be gone
Let's start a new world - from this day on

Repeat Chorus
