Stronger Tomorrow - An Anthem For The International Day Of The Girl Child

Stronger Tomorrow, through its lyrics, establishes the fact that women are the makers of their own future, and the process begins with girls. The underlying message of the song for girls world over is that the world is theirs, and no one can take it away from them. Rendered from the perspective of Life, the song is a powerful assertion through art advocacy that women and girls, who hold up half the sky, have a rightful place under the sun, and that this is the foundation of a stronger future built on gender equality.

The song implores girls to break out of the shackles that bind them with assertiveness. Encouraging girls to speak up, speak out and speak against in their own way, the song alludes to the beautiful message of peace encapsulated by Mahatma Gandhi: In a gentle way, shake the world. It suggests a beautiful undercurrent of strength and inner power.

The Lyrics

Lift that hand a little higher,

move your legs a little faster,

talk when you talk a little softer,

don't be happy girl be happier

And you stay through the dark, get a hold of the light

if you look hard enough, it will be bright

it could be happiness, it could be sorrow,

there'll always be my arms for you to borrow,

to hold you through today to a stronger tomorrow,

to a stronger tomorrow,

to a stronger tomorrow

Lift that chin a little higher,

smile a little wider,

why don't you sing a little louder,

why! why!

And you stay through the dark, get a hold of the light

if you look hard enough it will be bright

it could be happiness, it could be sorrow,

there'll always be my arms for you to borrow,

to hold you through today to a stronger tomorrow,

to a stronger tomorrow,

to a stronger tomorrow

Dream tonight about the 'morrow you want,

dream with your eyes open to have no want,

work a little more tonight, make your own way

just walk with me, walk with me into the day

And you stay through the dark, get a hold of the light

if you look hard enough it will be bright

it could be happiness, it could be sorrow,

there'll always be my arms for you to borrow,

to hold you through today to a stronger tomorrow,

to a stronger tomorrow
