Hello, hello, whoever you are

My kids are asleep in the back of my car

It's late, it's cold, and it's starting to snow

We're scared and we're hungry and have no safe place to go

 

Hello, you say you've been running for days

Threatened by the one you love, you tried to get away

Battered, your bruised, scared and confused

Follow these directions, we do have room for you

 

Do you know who she is, the woman in the news

Running for her life, beaten and bruised

Do you know she's not a stranger, she's in your world

She's your mother, your sister, she's your little girl

 

I want to thank you for giving us space

My kids are in school now; they're in hiding, but safe

Can you help me in my relationship?

Tell me what I did wrong because I just don't understand it

 

You are welcome, but you are the one

This progress is a direct result of the hard work you have done

You may not have heard this in oh, so very long

But woman let me tell you it's not you who did wrong

 

Voice 1: Do you know who she is, the woman in the news

Running for her life, beaten and bruised

Do you know she's not a stranger, she's in your world

She's your mother, your sister, she's your little girl

 

Voice 2: Do you know who she is, do you know who she is

Do you know who she is, do you know who she is

Do you know who she is, do you know who she is

She's your mother, your sister, she's your little girl

 

Sixty days since I left my home in pain

Traded what I knew in life for the safety of new names

Moving into housing, we're set up for a year

Got a job, enrolled in school, I feel hope replacing fear

 

I see your move and the chances you have made

Incredibly courageous in your journey day by day

It's clear to one who takes the time to see

You have the power to shape your destiny

 

Voice 1: Do you know who she is, the woman in the news

Running for her life, beaten and bruised

Do you know she's not a stranger, she's in your world

She's your mother, your sister, she's your little girl

 

Voice 2: Do you know who she is, do you know who she is

Do you know who she is, do you know who she is

Do you know who she is, do you know who she is

She's your mother, your sister, she's your little girl

 

It's in the news; it's in the headlines

It happens everyday

Another 'crime of passion'

And a woman's rolled away

Do you know she's not a stranger, she's in your world

She's your mother, your sister, she's your little girl
