by Original Broadway Cast. From Pirate Queen
Woman by Original Broadway Cast
Woman I am born
What does "woman" mean?
Must my dreams face scorn
Held back and unseen
If I long for fire
Must it stay unreal?
Can I not desire?
Am I not to feel?
If I ache to taste
Am I not to try?
If my heart says sail
Why should I deny?
I have my dreams
I have made plans
I see horizons wide as a man's
Must I be nothing till I'm some man's wife?
Look at this face
Does it deceive?
Do I look made to milk and to weave?
I will be damned to Hell if that is my life!
[GRANIA] (spoken) Blasphemy--I know, forgive me! But I won't take it back! I won't!
[TIERNAN] (spoken) I understand you! Somehow I never pictured you knitting.
I'm almost your age,
I'm your match in size,
I'm as skilled with swords
And equal in most eyes
But when you have a dream
And you're caught in its grip
You can climb aboard a ship
You can -
You can for you're a man!
You can reach toward that place
Where the earth meets the sky
Fight a battle be brave, be true
If you can do it, why not I?
I'm meant to fly
Why is man free and woman chained?
Is that my epitaph before I die?
I should be free
Free to be Grace
So I can feel the wind on my face!
And when life beckons, I should go
Face out the storm, not stay below
Am I to be just woman? No! Not I!
