WALK ON

Her cry broke out beneath the sign of fire, luck and love
“This one’s strong”, her mama said, “she’ll make a pathway all her own.”
And when her curls began to fall, she made up her own song
And all the elders said her mind and heart could blind the stars above
Until she finds a man to love
Until she finds a man to love

So now Mister Mister
On one knee knew the power of her word
She said, “Can I keep my mind, if I take your hand
Or is that not how this works.

Tell me what if I say no
Do I need he to make me whole
Can I be here on my own
Can she walk on all on her own

Oh girl
She’s growing up strong just to give herself away
Oh No
You gotta live in this world don’t you trade it all for this
Diamond ring
Say where to go, they’ll believe anything you say

The little ones come to claim her heart and pull her down the road
While moon looks down to meet her gaze
It seems the only one who knows
Her arms are full and can’t reach out to the Queendom she would hold
“Oh well” she whispers, “Next time round, I won’t do as I’m told.
No I won’t do as I’m told.
Gonna walk on where I wanna go.

Oh girl
She’s growing up strong just to give herself away
Oh No
You gotta live in this world don’t you trade it all for this
Diamond ring
Say where to go, they’ll believe anything you say


Oh, girls
We’re growing up strong just to give ourselves away
Oh No
We gotta live in this world we can’t trade it all for these
Diamond rings
Let’s Say where to go, they’ll believe anything we say

Tell me what if I say no

Walk on all on my own
