C   F   Am   G

[Chorus]
C                  F  
I don't know her name
Am                          G                 
But she got abused by that man again
               C 
But what'd she say?
         F
"I'm not crying. 
    Am       G
I'm fine."

[Verse 1]
           C
So we said okay.
              F
And we walked away.
                 Am                 G   
And we said we'd pray that she gets better
                  C
But what we don't know
                        F
Is that she crossed the road
             Am           G
Inside she's dying, she's dying 
        C             F                Am                G 
And the broken pieces of her heart scatter the floor all about her
           C
So we stay away
           F
So we stay away
           Am
So we stay away 
             G 
and we tread lightly

[Chorus]
C                  F 
I might know her name
Am                          G
Family, friend or stranger all the same
           C
What can I say or do?
          F
She seems fine
      Am          G
She’s fine.

[Verse 2]
      Am                   
She's on an island, guilt and shame
   F
No friends no love just suffering
    Am                        G   
She looks to the horizon, an elusive hope remains
      Am               
But beneath the sands, beneath her feet
     F
The skulls of girls, their fate repeats 
       Am        G 
On the island of Silence 
Am
You are not alone
     F
Your mind's not playing tricks on you
   Am                                   G  
If you are hearing this song, you, just know it's not your fault
        Am 
You the victim, you the victor
          F
Trust and know that we are with you
        Am  
We will listen, we'll take action 
         G
We'll uphold you, we’re the salt

[Chorus]
C               F
I now know your name
     Am                G
I'll share your story, share your pain 
                 C           F
Please rest your arm over my shoulder 
                Am      G
And we'll start trying 

[Verse 3]
Am
No you didn’t ask for it
     F
Your peace was never his to own
       Am                            G    
Though you are rendered powerless by no fault of your own
        Am        
You are woman, without limits
           F
Your voice matters, fight against this
        Am
You are greater than the image
     G         
This society’s presented
    C               F

[Chorus]
And I now know your name
  Am              G 
I cannot help but share your pain 
             C             F 
I’ll rest my arm over your shoulder 
                Am     G
And we'll start trying
