This song is for Chile’s Camila Vallejo.
Student leader she is and can shut down a city.
Free public education she wants and reforms.
“It’s always the youth that makes the first move,”
she says and I say: “Youth must have its way.”
Latin America is charmed by her, the rebel leader.
“There are huge levels of discontentment,” she says.
“We took the first step but we are no longer alone,
the older generations are now joining this fight.”
And I say: “Youth is the key to bringing new life.”
She is a young and beautiful leader,
leading the youth in a grand uprising
to pave the way for coming generations.
“We want a profound change,” she says.
And I say: “Education must be free and best all over the world.”
This song is for Chile’s Camila Vallejo
and student leaders everywhere on earth.
It’s a song for freedom of mind and spirit
and the light of intelligence of every young soul.
The future is young and must have its way, you know.
