Every girl I know has been sexually harassed
They should be complimented
Instead they're attacked
Most guys shrug it off
The first way they react
But for me that's not right
Because it's time to face facts
That one day we're all gonna have daughters
And one day they're gonna face that
And you'll look on powerless
And won't know how to react
Perhaps you'll say the kids lost their way
Tell your crying daughter tomorrow's another day
But tomorrow she will never be the same
As she was yesterday
So today should be the day
That we find a way to end the treatment
And bereavement of the special women around us
The solutions surround us
Somehow the answer's haven't found us
But today should be the day
That we find a way
To end this pain
And change for our friends
Partners sisters and daughters
Because the last thing I want to see
When I have my kids
Is to live through this again
Through my daughter's eyelids.
