    From the Huffington Post: "Return of the Woman‘s album cover shows an open-mouthed Bryan standing, cigarette in hand, next to a pink scooter on a grim street in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. It’s just this sense of unexpected beauty in the midst of struggle that permeates Return of the Woman; Bryan clearly relates to the Bosnian people and their ability to live life fully despite terrible suffering and difficulties. Her song “New (Brave) World” celebrates the people of Sarajevo’s ability to find joy even while living in the midst of a war zone."

lyrics

I’m so sad about jesus
There was a time when he held my hand
I’m still looking for salvation
And a way to the promised land

Strummer’s singing on the radio
But it’s a Marley song
Says he’s looking for what I am
And it sounds like it won’t be long
But how can we find our freedom
When all we do is fight
And no one’s standing up now
To make everything alright

When they say it begins with me
Well who the fuck am I supposed to be
if I’m hard on you
It’s cuz I’m hard really hard on me
I took a look down inside
And shuttered at what was there
Like Ali I’ll fight
Cuz everything’s gotta be alright

Rise up
lift up your arms
Wise up
put down your arms

I’m so sad about jesus
There was a time when he held my hand
I’m still looking for redemption
And a way to the promised land
