Lyrics – Emelie Sande – Read All about it Pt III

“Most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them.” – Henry David Thoreau.

You’ve got the words to change a nation but you’re biting your tongue

You’ve spent a life time stuck in silence afraid you’ll say something wrong

If no one ever hears it how we gonna learn your song?

So come, on come on Come on, come on

You’ve got a heart as loud as lions So why let your voice be tamed?

Baby we’re a little different there’s no need to be ashamed

You’ve got the light to fight the shadows so stop hiding it away

Come on, Come on

I wanna sing, I wanna shout I wanna scream till the words dry out

Sso put it in all of the papers, i’m not afraid

they can read all about it read all about it

At night we’re waking up the neighbours while we sing away the blues

making sure that we remember yeah cause we all matter too

if the truth has been forbidden then we’re breaking all the rules

so come on, come on come on, come on, lets get the tv and the radio to play our tune again

its ’bout time we got some airplay of our version of events

there’s no need to be afraid i will sing with you my friend

Come on, come on
Yeah we’re all wonderful, wonderful people so when did we all get so fearful?

Now we’re finally finding our voices so take a chance, come help me sing this
