You Were There





You were there
Before we came
You took the hurt
You took the shame
They built the walls
To block your way
You beat them down
You won the day
It wasn't right
It wasn't fair
You taught them all
You made them care
Yes, you were there
And thanks to you
There's now a door
We all walk through
And we are here
For all to see
To be the best
That we can be
Yes, I am here
'Cause you were there
