about

A song written about Malala Yousufzai. She is known for her activism for rights to education and for women, especially in the Swat Valley, where girls were banned from attending school. She was shot to stop her and make a statement, but it Backfired!

lyrics

I open my eyes to another day
I'm not afraid
I'm not afraid
I open my eyes and I'm on my way
I'm not afraid
I feel safe

though we don't have to duck and cover
we don't know the way you do
but here's from all the girls around the world to you
here's from all the girls around the world to you

you got shot in the head for what you said
took a bullet to the head for what you said
but you'd do it all again
but you'd do it all again

I open my eyes with a lot to say
I speak my mind with no delay
I open my eyes and begin to cry
I'm not afraid
I wonder why

that we don't have to duck in cover
we don't know the way you do
but here's from all the girls around the world to you
here's from all the girls around the world to you

you got shot in the head for what you said
took a bullet to the head for what you said
but you'd do it all again
but you'd do it all again

so here's from all the girls to you
Malala
