“Formidable & Loved”
Music & lyrics by Gabes Torres

A
Every night when you retire
D F#m
What do you say to the child inside
Bm
Who dreamt big and wild
E
And got you by

A
I would say, “oh, little one,
D F#m
You have had it all along
Bm
In your hope, your freedom songs,
E
In your search for home

A D F#m E
You have that sweet, fierce something
That makes the crowds do more than just exist
Bm E A
You make them- you make them want to live.”

A
And today, we still find a way
D F#m
to be seen, to be safe
Bm. E
And tell the world we’ve always had a name and a place

A
Would you say it takes so long
D F#m
to be heard, to show what’s wrong
Bm E
we didn’t need to have to be this strong
We shouldn’t need to have to be this strong
