Track Name: We All Belong
There are leaves falling all around my feet
With the wind howling high, I looked up at the sky
The clouds were grey and bleak
Rain will come while I’m still travelling on
To the place where she hides, from the struggles in life
It’s hard for her being all alone

How many wrongs does it take to make everything all right?
How long has this been going on?

Through the streets people stand and stare
Now with me by her side, there’s no reason to hide
It’s safe to make the steps that she needs
To be free, to live in society
There is hope in our hearts ther’ll be a new start
For her, for all, we’re making space for peace

How many wrongs does it take to make everything all right?
For we are the same, how’d you think it’s ok to treat others this way?
So she has to fight for her rights, and for the rest of the world

Brave stories that she holds so deep
All the risks that she took doing her work courageously
Now with support, protecting her every move
See the strength in her eyes, now is the time
Speak out and be the voice that’s heard

How many wrongs does it take to make everything all right?
For we are the same, how’d you think its ok to treat others this way?
So she has to fight for her rights, and for the rest of our world

So long been waiting for this day to come
So long been waiting to be free from harm
Wanting to belong

How many wrongs does it take to make everything all right?
For we are the same, how’d you think its ok to treat others this way?
So she has to fight for her rights, and for the rest of the world
Why, when, she belongs
Why when we all belong
Why when we all belong
