Out of a place of darkness I began to think of all the amazing individuals, known and unknown who have risen up and created movements that change history. This is in honor of the people who truly do make America great.

I wrote this song one week before the 2017 inauguration of Trump, recorded it, mixed and mastered it and created a video that I released on the day of the inauguration. I was invited to sing it at the 2018 and 2019 Bay Area Women's Marches.

Lyrics

We build a fire
Fire burns bright
You can blow hard
But you can’t kill light

We come together
Sometimes we fight
You can knock us down
But you can’t kill light

You Can’t Kill Light
No you can’t kill light

We built a railroad
Out of the past
We nailed down every tie
And we won’t go back

High in your tower
Of steel & glass
You can sign the order
But we won’t go back

We won’t go back
No we won’t go back

We built this house
That we could share
Now you want it for yourself
But we’re still here

You think we’re different
And it makes you scared
So you raise a wall around you
But we’re still here

We’re still here
we’re still here

We lay the table
We shared our cup
Now you tell us we’re not welcome
But we don’t give up

We outlast hate
We rise above
You can knock us down
But you can’t kill love

You can’t kill love
no you can’t kill love

You can’t kill love
no you can’t kill love

We built a fire
Fire burns bright
You can blow hard
But you can’t kill light

We come together
We come to fight
You can knock us down
But you can’t kill light

You Can’t Kill Light
No you can’t kill light
