Track Sample:

 

Emily Wilding Davison (11 October 1872 – 8 June 1913) was a militant suffragette who fought for women’s suffrage in Britain. She was jailed on nine occasions and force-fed 49 times. She stepped in front of King George V’s horse Anmer at the Epsom Derby on 4 June 1913, suffering fatal injuries. Her funeral on 14 June 1913 was organised by the Women’s Social and Political Union (WSPU). Thousands of suffragettes accompanied the coffin and tens of thousands of people lined the streets of London.

You made a noise and thousands of voices were heard

They came, they stood beside you, they kept their word

 

What made your heart…. burn like a fire?

What drove your pain…. your sacrifice, your desire?

 

Was it the cage that held you still?

Or the times they tried to break your will?

 

You gave it all you had, they watched you gather ‘round

On that darkened Friday, when they knocked you to the ground

 

They dragged you away and they tried to silence you

But your cries became louder; you were stronger than they knew

Be seen be heard, again and again. Be seen be heard, again and again

 

The world was watching now, you knew your time was here

And you stood before the King; you raised your flag with no fear

 

GUITAR SOLO:

 

What made your heart burn like a fire?

What drove your pain, your sacrifice, your desire?

 

They’re focused on us now, so be seen, make a noise, be heard

Be there all the time, change is all we have, votes for women, suffragettes forever

 

The world was watching now, you knew your time was here

And you stood before the King; you raised your flag with no fear

 

You gave all you had

You gave all you had . . . Emily
