Tell Her Story

September 28, 2011

I wrote this song about the story that launched http://fast21.org and in honor of my friends who are rowing the Atlantic to bring awareness to human slavery..

Tell her Story by charimusic

She was barely 17
Forced to do unspeakable things
Virtue stolen
She Longs for freedom
all her Tears to cease
Virtue restored

How can I just walk by?
How can I ignore the white lights?
How can I just live this life
and not tell her Story?

I wish I could Design
a better way, a better world, a better fate.
But all I can do is sing
Perhaps conquer the seas
with her in mind.

How can I just walk by?
How can I ignore the white lights?
How can I just live this life
and not tell her Story?

27 million faces have been lost
27 million souls have been robbed

I refuse to just walk by
I refuse to ignore the white lights
I refuse to just live this life
and not tell her Story.

Together we can change the world.
