Soft Power the Musical - Democracy Lyrics


HILLARY:
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know
Better than you
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know
This much is true

So many times it's left me battered and bruised
Disillusioned, in pain, feeling I've been used
I swear I'll give it up, before it downright kills me
Then it comes back again, with promises that thrill me

And I forget what I really should know
And I forget that it's just a big, big show
And I dream, oh I dream, of all it could be
And once more, I believe, I believe, I believe
In democracy
Oooh, democracy

Democracy

It's broken my heart so many times before
But this one was the worst
Left me screamin' on the floor
I was taught in the land of the free
In the land where they screamed at me
"Life! Liberty!"
How can I turn my back
On democracy?

Am I still in pain, suffering from trauma?
Am I insane, addicted to drama?
Oh, oh, oh!

And I forget what I really should know
I forget that it's just a big, big show
And I dream that my people can be
They can be wise enough, just enough
Worthy of trust enough, kind enough, smart enough
With a big heart enough
Good and grown-up enough
To lift us up, lift us up, lift us up, lift us up!

And I dream
They can be somehow worthy of—

Look, this country's a disaster
In so many ways
But we have the power
We have the power
We have the power to change
That's why I believe in—
I know, I know, I know, I know
I believe, oh I believe
I believe in
Democracy
