This song is inspired by a character in my novel Energy Dependence Day (https://www.amazon.com/Energy-Dependence-Day-Christian-Burton/dp/0991205200/). Here's a short excerpt:
After doing a little more digging, Siraj found a copy of Janan's song, called “Safa's Tears.” The quality wasn't the best, but he could still make out the lyrics.
How can this be, that the monarchy, would turn a blind eye, and let the innocent die? How can they say, that this is the law, when their own strip it raw? Will this be the last straw? Islam is the one true religion, not a prison for our mind. Islam is the one true religion, not rules to keep us in line.

While all of Mississippi bakes in the scorching summer of 1925, sudden orphanhood wraps its icy embrace around pretty Emily Ann “Baby” Teegarten, a young teen.
Taken in by an aunt bent on ridding herself of this unexpected burden, Baby Teegarten plots her escape using the only means at her disposal: a voice that brings church ladies to righteous tears, and makes both angels and devils take notice. “I’m going to New York City to sing jazz,” she brags to anybody who’ll listen. But the Big Apple—well, it’s an awful long way from that dry patch of earth she’d always called home.
So when the smoky stages of New Orleans speakeasies give a whistle, offering all sorts of shortcuts, Emily Ann soon learns it’s the whorehouses and opium dens that can sidetrack a girl and dim a spotlight…and knowing the wrong people can snuff it out.
Jazz Baby just wants to sing—not fight to stay alive.
