Yuna - Rescue




I saw Yuna perform this in San Francisco. I was in heaven. The audience was ecstatic. 

When I hear this song I think of my daughter and then of all women. As a parent I worry a lot. Every day. This song make me think that maybe I worry too much and maybe everything will be just fine. 



Lyrics

She thinks she’s all alone
And all her hopes are gone 
And so I wrote this song 
So she can move along

Well things were bad. She was in despair
Things were bad. And you were never there
But things were bad. She came up for air
She said a little prayer. She found herself

Yeah! 
She’s got light in her face. She don’t need no rescuing she’s okay
Yeah! 
She’s got life in her veins. She don’t need no rescuing she’s okay

No S.O.S. needed, no rescuing, she’s fine out there. [2x]

Yeah!
She’s got life in her veins. She don’t need no rescuing, she’s okay.

She looks into the sky
And all her tears are dry
She kiss her fears goodbye
She’s gonna be alright

Things were bad. It was beyond repair
She was scared. She couldn’t handle it 

Things were bad. But now she’s glad
Can’t you tell, that she’s walking on air?

Yeah!
She’s got light in her face. She don’t need no rescuing, she’s okay.
Yeah!
She’s got life in her veins. She don’t need no rescuing, she’s okay.

No S.O.S. needed, no rescuing, she’s fine out there. [2x]

Yeah! 
She’s got life in her veins, she don’t need no rescuing, she’s okay.

That girl is you yeah, and that girl is me. That girl is stronger than the raging sea. [2x]

Yeah! 
She’s got light in her face, she don’t need no rescuing, she’s okay.
Yeah!
She’s got life in her veins, she don’t need no rescuing, she’s okay.

No S.O.S. needed, no rescuing, she’s fine out there. [2x]

Yeah! 
She’s got life in her veins, she don’t need no rescuing, she’s okay.
