Know me, love me.

... that which I do not deserve.

I have a particular understanding of being victim and of being vicitimized. Like too many other Aboriginal people, I have been a victim. I was a victim of child sexual abuse, or a battering relationship, or rape. In the First Nation's women's community, that does not make me exceptional. I can tell you the name of only one Aboriginal woman in this country who I know for sure has not survived incest, child sexual abuse, rape or battering. it is worse than that, because most of us do not survive just one single incident of bause or violence. Our lives are about the experience of violence from birth to death, be it overt physical violence or psychological and emotional violence.

These be the things that still make me cry.

And I know you have a heavy heart, I can feel it when we kiss
So many men stronger than me have thrown their backs out trying to lift it
But me I'm not a gamble, you can count on me to split
The love I sell you in the evening by the morning won't exist

And I'm not sure what the trouble was that started all of this
The reasons all have run away, but the feeling never did
It's not something I would recommend, but it is one way to live
Cause what is simple in the moonlight by the morning never is

It was so simple in the moonlight now it's so complicated
It was so simple in the moonlight, so simple in the moonlight
So simple in the moonlight...
