[refrain x2]
She's just a glad gurl
a fab gurl
a gay gurl
your gurl

Across the stars, vast empty space
her love fills, time and place
she's so smart, she's so cute
her smile sings, she loves you, loves you, loves you

[refrain]

[verse 2]
Up and down, inside out
twist and turn, jump and shout
this is life, no straight line
fab gurls come in every size, and color, color your love

[refrain]

[verse 3]
Her best friend is some gay dude
gender bender, medical defender
lesbian rock climbers take no parachutes
life is fab when she loves you, loves you, loves you

I Am Womyn, Poem Song
words (poem) + music Chrisentiae Saint-Piaf

Poem composed Monday 9 July 2012, music composed Wednesday 9 September 2015.

Youtube music video - I Am Womyn, Poem Song

Song meaning:
I composed this this as a poem in 2012 and set it to music in 2015. This is me reflecting in a mirror, pre eHRT. I came out as transgender and lesbian on 4 July 2011 but it wasn't till 8 September 2014 that I was able to get medical help eHRT. There is a lot of discrimination against transgender persons and our human rights.


I Am Womyn, Poem Song
© 2015 Chrisentiae Saint-Piaf

[verse 1]
Within I am femyl, without I am not me
for my heart speaks, this womyn to be free
for such a long time, I was under a shadow
expectations of gender, a silenced sparrow


[verse 2]
Told, my body is who I am, my heart is not me
do this, do that, and obey, but I womyn, do not flee
for where can there be warmth, in arms that long to embrace
when I my true self, am but an expected empty space?


[verse 3]
So society scorn me no more, you point, and sneer and mock
as though my heart feels not, as though such were a rock
for though my tears and cries, I do not let you see
know that your words seek harm, to the very essence me


[verse 4]
I am but like a flower, striving for some sun
to grow and love and be happy, like all God's children
I am but like a sparrow, who each day her heart does sing
to give praise for each new day, autumns, summers, winters, springs

[repeat verse 1, then x3]

I am but like a sparrow, (then ad lib per song)

dancing on the silver screen
your're more than expressive eyes that see
when you reach out to me
across time distant seas

You're not just the 1920s to me
you're my queen
dancing on the flickering screen
you're a flappergurl like me
I'm your destiny
dancing on the color screen

[refrain]

[verse 4]
You're not just black and white to me
you're my queen
dancing on the silent screen
you're a flappergurl like me
I'm your destiny
dancing on the color screen

This is love, hey people everywhere
if you're going to Melbourne, wear some flowers in your hair

this is love, holding hands
she whispers your name, she understands
