about

Yarl's Wood is an immigration removal centre in Bedfordshire. As horrific rumours circulated about the treatment of female detainees, Theresa May (Home Secretary at the time) denied the UN Special Envoy investigating violence against women access to the centre. We wrote this song in solidarity with the #SetHerFree campaign, please read more here: www.refugeewomen.co.uk/campaign/

lyrics

I walked through the hard lands
Dreamed of forests green
I walked through the deserts
Prayed for trees

Then I came to this country
Land of hope and glory
Then I came to Yarl's Wood
And I dreamed no more of trees

A tree has many branches
Reaching for the sky
A tree has roots that run deep
Shelters many different lives

Then I came to this country
Mother of the free
Then I came to Yarl's Wood
And I dreamed no more of trees

I made the choice, that is no choice
And so I left my home
Perhaps to find some new nest
Now that my own is gone

Then I came to this country
They cut the corners from the sky
Then I came to Yarl's Wood
And no more dreamed I.
