VERSE
We sit here quietly and watch
In our comfortable chairs.
Will enough ever be enough,
Are we getting anywhere?
When girls can’t walk outside the door
Without being scarred for life.
It’s a world we’ve never known before,
It’s a world where books keep you alive.

Maybe we should follow
The footsteps of a girl.
The woman of tomorrow,
Let’s fight for a better world.

CHORUS
Let the strength, and power and courage run through us all,
Let it tear down every brick of every wall.
We don’t fear, we don’t fear a scar.
Let the voice of women be heard through us all,
Let it tear down every brick of every wall.

VERSE
How could we let it get this way,
How could we close our eyes?
I couldn’t bear to sit and wait
When we still have the time.

Maybe we should follow … etc.
