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?
Maybe 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
So put it in all of the papers,
I'm not afraid
They can read all about it
Read all about it
Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh

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
It's '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
I wanna sing, I wanna shout
I wanna scream till the words dry out
So put it in all of the papers,
I'm not afraid
They can read all about it
Read all about it
Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh

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

Yeah we're all wonderful, wonderful people
So when did we all get so fearful?
And now we're finally finding our voices
So take a chance, come help me sing this

I wanna sing, I wanna shout
I wanna scream till the words dry out
So put it in all of the papers,
I'm not afraid
They can read all about it
Read all about it
Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh

I wanna sing, I wanna shout
I wanna scream till the words dry out
So put it in all of the papers,
I'm not afraid
They can read all about it
Read all about it oh

    This song means alot to me, it is just showing me that so much times in life hide hid my voice not tryin to hurt others while they hurt me it shows us that we cherish others and we don't get the same in return this song also made me open my eyes and be a better, brave and more expirenced person and young lady. Yet we are all wonderfull wonderful people don't hide your voices.

    I think its about not giving up. Not caring about what other people say 'I'm not afraid, they can read all about it\'.
    To me the song is very inspiring because it makes me want to put myself out there. To step up to that leadership role. To be proud of my school work, to not worry about what people think of my work and to focus more on how I can improve to become that better person. To not be afraid! 'you've got the words to change a nation but youre biting your tongue' I now see a whole new perspective. Be a better person, don't be afraid and go hard!

    Oh now predator and total recall are two after my own heart. I'm srrsuiped that none of us wrote anhtiyng on t2. Now that defines action but I guess 2 ah-nulds in one blog a thon is enough: palso, this wouldn't be a list without die hard so thanks andy for picking another obvious staple. Like I wrote on your page, smashing write up:)never heard of ran but I am for sure going to check it out. Speaking of which I've only seen seven samurai and with that will admit I'm criminally light on my knowledge of kurosawa. This makes 5 on my list of will see soon. Great job everyone, this was fun!
