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
