02. In The Girl There's A Room

Tell Me What You Know
by Sara Groves


In the girl there's a room
In the room there's a table
On the table there's a candle
and it won't burn out

In the man there's vision
In the vision is a road
It's the road to his freedom...

In the boy there's a voice
and the voice there's a calling
In the call there's a promise
and it won't quiet down

In the woman is a picture
in the picture is a girl
in the girl there's a room...

Tell me what you know
About God and the world and the human soul
How so much can be wrong
and still there are songs

In the man is a work
and the work is his future
and the future is his children
and he won't slow down

In the woman there's a faith
in the faith there's a prayer
in the prayer there's a promise...

In the boy is a dream
in the dream he is standing
and he stands without shaking/ failing/ wavering/ fear
and he won't sit down

In the girl is a song
In the song there is hope
in the hope there's defiance...

Tell me what you know
About God and the world and the human soul
How so much can be wrong
and still there are songs

In their hearts and souls
an unstoppable refrain
Hope stands/sings in defiance

Behind the Song:
"“In the Girl” is about the resilience of hope. Hope is revolutionary. It stands in defiance of nature, the world and all that would tear us down. I told Charlie Peacock, my co-writer on this one, that I had a reoccurring image in my head when I thought about Elisabeth and other girls like her who are victims of sex trafficking: In the girl there’s a room, in the room there’s a table, on the table there’s a candle, and the candle won’t burn out. These men can abuse and hurt and so much can be taken from these young girls, but there’s a room in their hearts that cannot be touched. These girls are broken beyond belief, and yet in their restoration time, when they come to after care homes, there is a rebuilding, a little flicker inside that could not be destroyed." - Sara Groves
