Lyrics

Courage, little sister

come and hold my hand
as we wade across the river
courage, little sister
we must stay together
we're hunted
but remember who we are

take a quiet breath
the torch is getting nearer
courage, little sister
I promise to protect you
Don't be afraid

they came across the border and they killed and burned and
occupied our land
so many people dying in the blackest night that we have ever known

the sun is nearly rising
the dogs are barking
courage, little sister
we are the last survivors
we're hunted
but remember who we are

they came across the border and they killed and burned and
occupied our land
so many people dying in the blackest night that we have ever known

shadows all around us
courage, little sister
the spirits of our people
moving here among us
we're not alone

so put your arms around me
yes, the water's getting deeper
but I can't let them hurt you
have courage, little sister
now close your eyes
