written by Reid Jamieson (music)
and Carolyn Victoria Mill (words)

 

 

 

 

Dedicated the missing and murdered aboriginal women and girls, this song is a dark but danceable plea for unity and compassion. Together we are strong, and HATE, no matter how strong our reasons, will never be enough for healing. Recorded at home in Vancouver and written by the husband and wife songwriting team of Reid Jamieson and Carolyn Victoria Mill. Written in January of 2013 in Ucluelet BC, home of the Yuu-tluth-aht people. Ucluelet means "people of the safe harbour" in the indigenous Nuu-chah-nulth (Nootka) language. These women and girls deserved that and so much more. Gone but not forgotten.

 

LYRICS

 

IT’S NOT ENOUGH (for healing)

 

It’s enough to stay alive

It’s enough to just get by

It’s enough to close your eyes

Hide away the pain inside

It’s enough to save your pride

Cover up your shame and lies

 

It’s not enough to bring them back

It’s not enough to hide your tracks

It’s not enough to change a map

When little babies live in shacks

 

It’s not enough to paint them black

It’s not enough for healing

It’s not enough to give it back

When what you’ve done is stealing

 

I call on every one of you

You’re my sister brother too

We're all under the same moon

There's still something we can do

 

Make a circle 'cross this land

Come together holding hands

I must practice mercy too

So I’m asking more of you !

 

It’s not enough

It’s not enough

It’s not enough

For healing
