Maybe They Gather Under Moonlit Skies: Ladies of the Night

I am going to do a series on this here blog where I highlight lyrics.  It seems like people don’t sit down and really HEAR/FEEL lyrics anymore.  Like Sean Carter says, “Do you fools listen to music or do you just skim through it?

First up, newest client, #FUTUREROCK band, Outernational and their song ‘Ladies of The Night‘.  Catalina Maria Johnson for Gozamos sums up the mission of the song: “To sing of the Juarez femicidio tragedy, Solay composed the song “Ladies of the Night”, which creates a world where the thousands of murdered women never really died, but have gone to the desert to dance.”

LADIES OF THE NIGHT / OUTERNATIONAL

One way or another
I’m going to find you
I’m trying to
Beneath the surface
Where the well is deep and wide
Maybe they gather under moonlit skies
I know I’ve seen them on the other side

In that place where no one goes
The bottom of the desert, where the scorpions roam
Where did they go, are they still alive?
Have they been burnt by the fire outside?
Everybody’s been looking, wondering who took them
You can’t find your ladies of the night

Free women walking side by side
There’s a revival tonight
These women and their little girls
Messengers of a whole new world

The darkness needs a harlot
A Mata Hari market, but
The sisters untethered
Shackles busted in the fight
Heads held high in the Southwestern sky
Spirit strong in flight, what was wrong is made right
They were never ladies of the night

Free women walking side by side
There’s a revival tonight
These women and their little girls
Messengers of a whole new world

Free women walking side by side
There’s a revival tonight
These women and their little girls
Messengers of a whole new world
