Lyrics:

WE WILL FIND A WAY
There is a story, one we know too well
A story of a woman, her life a hollow shell
The fire inside her has faded to a spark
All she has is dignity to warm her in the dark

There is a story, one we've heard before
A story of the children, suffering through war
The world they trusted has let them down so fast
They live in horror, in the shadow of their past

If I could write a story on the wall
I would write a revolution
A story for us all

We must love without borders, we must live without shame
We must fight without weapons, we must win what we claim
We can wait for Utopia or build it here today
We're not afraid, we're ready now, we will find a way

There is a story, told in every place
A story of a young girl, ashamed to show her face
She thinks she's ugly, and no-one says she's wrong
She isn't in a fairytale, she isn't someone's swan

There is a story, told anew each night
A story of a battle, where men and women fight
And is it fortune or fate that makes them choose
The colours of a rainbow or the colours of a bruise?

If I could write a story on the wall
I would write a revolution
A story for us all

We must love without borders, we must live without shame
We must fight without weapons, we must win what we claim
We can wait for Utopia or build it here today
We're not afraid, we're ready now, we will find a way

Forever flowing in our dreams
A mighty river full of stars
And we wade across to promised lands unknown
We will live in a house made of seasons
In a garden that heals our scars
We will live in a place where we'll never be alone

There is a story, one we're telling now
A story of a people who make a solemn vow
They've hurt each other, but now they will forgive
And now they'll all look forward, and learn again to live

If I could write a story to set us free
I would write a revolution
Come write it now with me

We will love without borders, we will live without shame
We will fight without weapons, we will win what we claim
We won't wait for Utopia, we'll build it here today
We're not afraid, we're ready now, we will find a way
