NOT THEIR FAULT

I am Jacob’s daughter
Dinah is my name
Leah is my mother
I am seventeen
There’s a dozen more
Who are my brothers
And two of them went to Shechem
And killed my lover.

They say they thought he took me unwilling
They say the stain on my honor required this killing

And they tell me it’s not their fault
They say things just happened that way
They say, must be how G-d planned it
So there’s no use in carrying on
They say, if anything, I am to blame
And I stand convicted and appalled
They say I shouldn’t have given my heart
And they tell me it’s not their fault.

His touch was my comfort
His smile was my light
And he was tender
And wanted to make me his wife
He offered alliance
In our ways he’d abide
My brothers stole his life
Like thieves in the night

They say they thought he took me unwilling
They say the stain on my honor required this killing

And they tell me it’s not their fault
They say things just happened that way
They say, must be how G-d planned it
So there’s no use in carrying on
They say, if anything, I am to blame
And I stand convicted and appalled
They say I shouldn’t have given my heart
And they tell me it’s not their fault.


My father says we will have to leave this place
I’d rather stay, but who’d have us in such disgrace??

And they tell me it’s not their fault
They say things just happened that way
They say, must be how G-d planned it
So there’s no use in carrying on
They say, if anything, I am to blame
And I stand convicted and appalled
They say I shouldn’t have given my heart
And they tell me it’s not their fault.

Why ever did I give him my heart??
