    Together, V-Day, a global activist movement, and One Billion Rising, a call to action campaign, are leading the fight against the staggering statistic that 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. Stoplight isn’t just a song, it’s my contribution to help raise awareness about V-Day and One Billion Rising, and to join the fight to stop violence against women. A stoplight at an intersection is a signal we’ve all learned to respect and stop our vehicles for without question. Let’s also respect the wishes of everyone everywhere that signal they wish an attacker to stop. Be a stoplight and urge others to as well, so that at the end of the day, we can all find our way home safely.

    {LYRICS}

    “Stoplight”

    [VERSE 1]
    What if you had no voice
    If you had no choice
    What if you were standing there alone or scared
    And they wouldn’t take no for an answer

    [CHORUS 1]
    You can be a stoplight
    You can shine real bright
    Cuz you have every right
    To say no, to say no, to say no

    [BREAK 1]

    [VERSE 2]
    Hey well we can change things
    We can rearrange things
    Make it so your worst fears are the stars aren’t clear
    Or you stepped through a puddle in the road

    [CHORUS 2]
    You can be a stoplight
    Take control of your life
    Cuz you have every right
    To walk alone, down the street at night, yeah, just to get home
    Be a stoplight
    You can shine real bright
    Cuz you have every right
    To say no, to say no

    [BRIDGE 1]
    Join the millions now
    As they sing out loud
    We’re not stepping down
    Till we’re safe in every town

    [BRIDGE 2]
    We can say no, oh, oh
    And we can just go, oh, oh
    We can say no, oh, oh
    We can just go, straight to our homes, safely now

    [BREAK 2]

    [PRE-CHORUS]
    Yeah so I’m a stoplight
    But you don’t know my life
    And I have every right
    To say no, to say no

    [CHORUS 3]
    We can be stoplights
    Take control of our lives
    We have every right
    To walk alone, down the street at night, just to get home
    Be a stoplight
    You can shine real bright
    Cuz you have every right
    To say no, to say no, to say

    [OUTRO 1]
    No, oh, oh¬–oo–whoa–oh, oh
    Just so you can go, oh, oh¬–oo–whoa–oh, oh
    We can say no, oh, oh¬–oo–whoa–oh, oh
    Just so we can go, home, safely

    [OUTRO 2]
    You can be a stoplight
    (Oh, oh, oh–oo–whoa–oh, oh)
    You can shine real bright
    (Oh, oh, oh–oo–whoa–oh, oh)
    Know that every night
    (Oh, oh, oh–oo–whoa–oh, oh)
    You can go on, home, safely

    You can be a stoplight
    (Oh, oh, oh–oo–whoa–oh, oh)
    You can shine real bright
    (Oh, oh, oh–oo–whoa–oh, oh)
    Know that every night
    (Oh, oh, oh–oo–whoa–oh, oh)
    You can go on, home, safely Show less
