Second Sex by Anupam Roy and The Anupam Roy Band: Lyrics

 
You've been applauding and appreciating this heartfelt and honest coming-of-age song from Anupam Roy. Now's the time to sing along.



Verse 1:

come out, come out and play
looks like a better day
the smoke has flown away, it's over.
roads are wide, streets are clear
demons dead and nothing to fear
sing it loud so that we can hear its over.
we close our eyes and try to see
we are better than we used to be
and think that days are safer than the nights.
 no matter how you wear your skirt
 you can always get hurt
and wonder what's the glory, what's the pride?
there's nothing to conquer, no kingdom to find.
there's nothing so holy, it's all in your mind.
 Chorus
She's not your mother,
and she's not your sister,
and she's not your daughter
she needs no protector.

Verse 2:

come out, come out and play
that's what the lovers say
good wind is here to stay, it's over.
take your time and choose your seat
feel your lungs and feel your feet
theories are obsolete, it's over!
 society and consequence.
 overriding common sense
future tense and stories of the wild.
no matter how you wear your skirt
you can always get hurt
and wonder what's the glory, what's the pride?
there's nothing to conquer, no kingdom to find.
there's nothing so holy, it's all in your mind.
 Chorus
She's not your mother,
and she's not your sister,
and she's not your daughter
she needs no protector.
