Her body
Her choice
Her free will
Her voice

You think you can take it?
Oh wait
You already did
And she is shaking

Scared of living
Scared of being happy
You took her joy away
Just like her freedom

She isn’t the problem
You are.
She isn’t the thief
You are.

You stole her rights
And her stars
Her body
Her choice

She made hers
You can’t feel her hurt
Because you’re not her
So you’ll never know

Her soul
Her voice
Her body
Her choice.
