lyrics

Malala (Yousafzai) © Tony King 2017

She was born into a poem
That was started long ago
You can hear the tears of a thousand years
In the wind from there when it blows
In the dust of the Swat Valley
The place she held so dear
She loved it with all her life
She loved it without fear
Malala Yousafzai
The future was written in your eyes
Malala Yousafzai
Your thoughts will never die will never die
She was raised to be a leader
Wisdom past her years
She thought girls should be allowed to learn
But the Taliban had other ideas
They shot her on a school bus
put a bullet in her brain
but her poem wasn’t finished
and her Phoenix rose again
Malala Yousafzai
The future was written in your eyes
Malala Yousafzai
Your thoughts will never die will never die
With the best of Doctors care
they gave all they had to give
she recovered even braver, more aware
for a bullet cannot kill an idea that was always born to live.
Girls will go to school
and the future testify
That you cannot kill a poem that will never, that will never die.
Malala Yousafzai
The future was written in your eyes
Malala Yousafzai
Your thoughts will never die will never die
Malala Yousafzai
The future was written in your eyes
Malala Yousafzai
Your thoughts will never die will never die

about

Beautifully Mad Sydney, Australia

Breathtaking original music reminiscent of the beauty of James Taylor, some honey from Melody Gardot, a lyrical spice of Cohen washed down with some Waits-like humour. A musical flame that licks at the heels of Folk and Jazz
