Find the Girl

Find the Girl is a song which was written to be played alongside an inspirational video of real life women’s stories at the Aspire Women’s Leadership Conference of over 500 wonderful women (and some men!) from around the world in 2016.

It’s based on the idea (from Harvard Business School research) that as a child we know who we are and have found our ‘life’s purpose’ aged around 6-10. Very often then other things get in the way but if we can reconnect with the feelings and desires we have then we will be more fulfilled and ‘on purpose’.

Here are the lyrics to ‘Find the Girl’.

There’s a little girl who’s not afraid to dream
There’s a little girl who’s filled with self esteem
She who knows who she is; and why she is
And what she’s here to do
Her purpose is clear
And so is yours cause
She’s still here‌Find the girl
Set her free
You know who she’s meant to be
Find the girl
Let her fly
You know how and you know why
Just find the girl cause she’s still here

Remember when …
Your world was filled with holding hands and handstands?
Remember when … you saved all your pennies in a jar?
Somehow you let the world take over,
Give you labels; write your story and tell you who you are.
Well, the dreamer you’d been , before life hemmed you in,
She’s still here

There’s a box made of glass inside your mind
You built it, you keep it there; its what you hide behind
Don’t be sorry
Don’t be stupid
Don’t be afraid
Just …
Find the girl
Let her flow
Smash the box and watch her go

Remember when…
A chocolate fuelled explorer conquered hills beyond her garden
Fearless in pursuit of something more
‌And granddad’s knee was the place to be
For dreaming of your destiny , where fearless stories set you free.
‌Well, the stories you told, before life took it’s hold,
They’re still here

Not everyone had the fairy tale
Not everyone remembers with a smile
For those who look back with a heavy heart
It’s not too late to start
Be the child you longed to be before the world took if from you
Make your own ‘ radio heaven’ to help you through

Just ………
Find the girl
Set her free
You know who she’s meant to be
Find the girl
Let her fly
You know how and you know why
(repeat)

Find the girl(she’s still here)
Set her free (she’s still here)
You know who (she’s still here)
She’s meant to be (she’s still here)

Find the girl
Let her dream
Fill her head with self esteem
Find the girl
Let her fly
You know how and you know why
‌Just set her free …..
Cause she’s still here.
