Such A One

SUCH A ONE
(Siedah Garrett, Glen Ballard)

“This song simply reminds us that one voice speaking out can make a tremendous difference. People often say, ‘What can I do? It’s only me. I’m just one person.’ In every generation there are those who speak up against the powers that be for the good of us all, changing the course of history. Don’t be afraid to be such a one.”

It just takes one to stand and fight
For what we all know is right
It takes one voice to shout it loud, strong and proud
And like an idea whose time has come
You should know that I am such a one
I feel the pain, I hear the cries
Won’t close my ears, won’t close my eyes
Somebody cares what we’ve become
You should know I am such a one
It just takes one to feed the fire
Before there’s change, there’s desire
It takes one heart to open up, sharing love
‘Cause like an idea, whose time has come
You should know I am such a one
I feel the pain, I hear the cries
Won’t close my ears, won’t close my eyes
Somebody cares what we’ve become
You should know that I am such a one
One light, one voice, for change, for choice
One heart, just one love
You should know, you should know…
Such a one, such a one, such a one
I am such a one
Such a one, such a one, such a one
I am such a one
I feel the pain, I hear the cries
Won’t close my ears, won’t close my eyes
Somebody cares what we’ve become
You should know, I am such a one
Someone cares what we become
Now you know
I am such a one
