lyrics

FIRST MIDWIFE Who can see what’s invisible? / Who can say what no one’s dared to speak? / Unseen, unsung, unloved / SECOND MIDWIFE She’ll open her eyes to the world to see she’s unwelcome / Her first words are heard as burden and blame / FIRST MIDWIFE Whatever left undone, she’ll be made to do / Whatever debt unpaid / THE MIDWIVES her body is the ransom / Who can see what’s invisible? / Who can say what no one’s dared to speak? / THE YOUNG WOMAN & THE MIDWIVES Unseen, unsung, unloved / THE MIDWIVES So she’ll put on the veil and demure as the men demand / Assume a uniform of worker / Enslaved / THE YOUNG WOMAN Or she’ll put on the face, a seller’s smiling face/ She’ll play a siren part / THE YOUNG WOMAN & THE MIDWIVES Unloved lover in the dark / Who can see what’s invisible? / Who can say what no one’s dared to speak? / Unseen, unsung / THE YOUNG WOMAN She’ll be empty and safe unless a new man breaks in / And enters her darkness, shining with questions / He’ll see her as woman worthy of love / He’ll stir faith in someone she can believe in / She’ll say to herself / I am seen and sung / For a moment I believed / For a season I was seen / Till my love was torn away / By the man who means to master me / It’s me who sees the invisible / I can say what no one dares to speak / or the grave is not as strong as the love I’ve tasted / No man’s fear or pride decides our story’s ending / THE YOUNG WOMAN & THE MIDWIVES While we may all be Beloved
