Stronger Tomorrow

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.

----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
