[Intro]: C Em G   x2

C            Em            G                                 C
People been talking about it, we won't just stand here in silence
                Em          G             C
Can't stop the fire from rising, rising, ooh

              Em           G                     C
People don't you be afraid, so many innocents slain
           Em         G
This is an era for change, change

     Am                 C               Em  D
And Malcolm's probably turning in his grave
Am               C         Dsus4 D
Every shade was beautifully made

          C  Em                  G
And powerful, there's so much strength in you and me
      C  Em           G 
Powerful, a breathe away from victory
   C           Em         G
I matter, you matter, we matter all

C        Em         G
I see a colorful future, where skin don't define any human
C                 Em              G               C
And stars are the only thing shooting, shooting, ooh

             Em           G
Mothers who bury their child, how can we sit there and hide
C                 Em                   G
Change comes when all take a stand now, stand up, stand up

 Am                   C              Em  D
Martin's speech still echoes in my brain
Am               C         Dsus4 D
Every shade was beautifully made

          C  Em                  G
