Superchick - Anthem

This song has been in heavy rotation around here lately. Probably because I've been giving myself a lot of personal pep talks to "get shit done."

That, and I've been watching a bunch of documentaries about women in sports (blog posts to come, I promise!) this last week.

Here's to the ones who don't give up

This is your anthem, get your hands up

We are fire inside, we are lipstick and cleats
We are not going home, we are playing for keeps
We are girls with skinned knees, we are concrete and grace
We are not what you think, you can't keep us in our place

Here's to the girls on their boards with bruises and scars
Here's to the girls whose fingers bleed from playin' guitar
Here's to anyone who never quit when things got hard
You'll never let them say 'you'll never get that far'

We are fire inside, we are an army asleep
We are a people awaking to follow their dreams
We don't have time for your games
We have our own goals to score
There are trophies to win instead of being one of yours


Here's to the ones who don't give up

This is your anthem
