Remarkable Lady

Written and Produced by Roberta Lea

Verse 1

Remarkable Lady powered by pain

Strengthened by storms and flowered by rain

Remarkable Lady faithful in fear

Hopeful in sorrow, you triumph in tears

 

Pre-Chorus

You've got that flame, got that fire 

The eye of the tiger

We’re watching you, yes we’re watching you

No one can even imagine they can’t even fathom What you’ve been through 

All that you’ve been through

So I’m taking a second to send you a blessing 

And tell you how special you are

 

Chorus

Remarkable Lady, Wonderful Woman 

You bare the burden most people couldn’t 

Remarkable Lady, you’ve got all of Heaven 

At a standing ovation

You’re the heart of the nations 

You’re blossom is beautiful

 

Verse 2

Remarkable Lady, your soul is a treasure chest

Finding gold in the fire 

Finding strength in your weakness

Remarkable Lady 

Heartbreak after heartbreak

Heartache after heartache 

Still you never lose your faith

Pre-Chorus

You've got that flame, got that fire 

The eye of the tiger

We’re watching you, yes we’re watching you

No one can even imagine, they can’t even fathom What you’ve been through 

All that you’ve been through

So I’m taking a second to send you a blessing 

And tell you how special you are

 

Chorus

Remarkable Lady, Wonderful Woman 

You bare the burden most people couldn’t 

Remarkable Lady, you’ve got all of heaven 

At a standing ovation

You’re the heart of the nations 

You’re blossom is beautiful

(You’re remarkable, You are wonderful,)

(You are powerful, Inspirational)

(So incredible, Blessings overflow) 

(You are, you are, you are beautiful)

Hook

You are the fire!

 

(So let ‘em feel the fire, let 'em feel the flame)

(Let ‘em feel the burn, let ‘em feel the pain)

(Let ‘em hear your words, let ‘em say your name)

(It’s your story girl don’t you be ashamed)

(You’re a thunder roll, you can stand the rain)

(You're an element, so embrace the change)

(Remarkable, that’s what I say)

(The heat of a thousand flames)

(And your blossom is beautiful)

Verse 1

 

Carolyn, your lies have been a mighty wind

Southern trees are forced to bow and bend

The truth you barely whisper

Carolyn, you leave a trail of broken men

Your words will make them sink or swim

In blood flooding the river

 

Bridge

 

And all the while you hear the sound

Of mothers crying for their child

So deaf in ear, so blind in eye

But why? 

 

Verse 2

 

Why, Carolyn, was death always the punishment?

Your house is filled with mice and men

Their actions far from honor

 

Bridge

 

And all this time it’s in their eyes

Their souls are burning fueled by lies

So cold in heart, so numb in mind

But why? 

 

Verse 3

 

Carolyn, your silence has been deafening

I beg you let our freedom ring

And love so kind to answer

 

Carolyn, one day you’ll see his face again

The child who paid the price for your sin

Will hold your soul for ransom (2x)
