She had been so tired

She had been so tired
So brave but not even this
Could keep her safe
From what is within

She has been forced into work
Yes, forced into work
Forced into work
Like a flower in a suit of armour

Oh, she’s so tired
She never rests
Her holidays are years away
Her holiday is nearer death

She has been so tired, so tired
I am powerless
And I’m grieved
She works so hard
So hard
It seems she never lives
