"Giant" as written by and Melissa Etheridge....
You tried to hold us down
You tried to hold us back
You tried to make us wrong
You tried to make us crack
You wanted to see us cry
You wanted to see us leave
You didn't count on the tide
You didn't count on the pride
You didn't count on me

I am a giant
And you will not make me fall
And you will not make me crawl
I am a giant
And I'm not alone
Winds of change have blown
And the walls come tumbling down

And I've learned from my mistakes
Picked myself up off the floor
I have learned just what it takes
Now I am stronger than before
And we are standing side by side
We are determined now to win
We have come too far
And we've got the scars
And we are never going back into the shadows again

I am a giant
Hey hey bye bye

    General CommentWhile she said this song was about a divided country she visited, one can't help but sense a gay theme. It seems this song could easily apply to the fight that gays and lesbians all over the world are fighting, and the sence that walls are falling down daily and we're always coming one step closer to equality.
