about

"Quietly" is one of the two new pre-released Daughters of Cambodia album songs. This song was inspired by the injustices suffered by Eman Al Obeidy in Libya in the last couple of months, and how often we stand by almost silently and watch things like this happen. It is the same injustice based on gender suffered by the girls in Cambodia who are forced into prostitution against their wills.

lyrics

Quietly they walk her to the car
No one knew what to do
Quietly the world still stands there stunned
How could that be true?

What else could be
What else could be true?
What else should we, what else should we do?

Quietly she's shaped with special words
With everything to lose
Carelessly we speak without concern
Don't be so sensitive...

What else can she
What else can she lose?
What else could we, what else can we do?
What else should we, what else could we do?

Quietly we tell ourselves it's hard
How can we get through?
It's easy when there's no one there to say
You can't do that to her
Quietly she steps into the night
What else could she do?
Quietly she's fighting for her life
Like everyone she knew.

What else can she
What else can we do?
How can this be, how can this be true?
What else can we, what else can we lose?
What else can we, what else can we choose?

Quietly your friend walks to the car
What else could she do?
