The L Project: “It Does Get Better”

The L PROJECT: “It Does Get Better”

 

Pada 11 Februari 2012, The L Project, kumpulan musisi dari Inggris, merilis lagu pertamanya yang berjudul “It Does Get Better”. Lagu ini ditujukan untuk menggalang dana yang akan digunakan untuk perjuangan melawan kekerasan terhadap kaum Lesbian, Gay, Biseksual, Transgender (LGBT).

Inspirasi lagu ini berasal dari seorang remaja bernama George (15) yang sampai sekarang masih mengalami kekerasan di sekolahnya karena orientasi seksualnya. Apabila teman-teman ingin mendukung mereka, teman-teman dapat membeli lagu ini secara legal di Amazon atau iTunes.

 

 

[Bait]

Could you walk through a town

See a boy beaten down against a wall,

And think nothing at all?

But you think nothing at all…

 

For the ones who can’t see

Or not hear any sounds in this life,

Try to feel what that’s like?

Cause no one gets to decide…

 

When days don’t seem right – just shine

Cause this life is yours and mine

On a day like today when you’re walking away

Hold your head up so high

Cause I tell you from here

 

[Reff]

That you’ve come so far

And always be who you are

When your head hits the floor

And you’re bleeding some more

Let me tell you I swear

That it does get better…

From where you are…

 

For all those men in their skirts

All the boys loving boys and the girls loving girls

I tell you it does get better…

 

[Bait]

For all the lovers who have smiled as they walked down the aisle in this life

Saying beautiful words, they were finally heard

And all the women and the men who’ve marched time and again for this fight

They were finally right

now were all breathing life

 

[Reff]

And now that we’ve come so far

And always stay who you are

When we’re walking so gay

Hold your head high and say

For the ones who can’t see

From the challenges feared

 

You’re not on your own

Together we’re stronger never get thrown

When you’re feeling so small

Get your back off that wal

Will you open your eyes?

Cause I tell you it does get better…

From where you are…

 

And if that sky up above sees the children you’ve loved

And all the families you grown from first being told “no”

It gets better…

From where we are…

 

For all those men in their skirts, for all girls who eat dirt…

All the boys loving boys and the girls loving girls

It gets better

 

Now that we’ve come so far

And always stay who you are…

For all those men in their skirts

All the boys loving boys, and the girls loving girls

I tell you it does get better…..

Mungkin buat beberapa orang, seksualitas masih membingungkan. Berikut adalah sebuah gambar tentang pemahaman seksualitas.
