"Proud" as written by and Tegan Quin Sara Quin....
Freedom and blood
I make my mark and fight for tomorrow
Finally I've got something
Something I can raise my voice for
Fine tell them who you really want
Fine well you'll get yours and I'll get mine

Proud I'm proud to be proud to see
They said proud
I'm proud to be proud to be me
They said tell me oh you've got to tell me

Freedom's rough
So we take our stand and fight for tomorrow
Finally we got something something we can
Bring down the house with
Fine tell them who you think you are
Fine tell them fine is what you are

And when you finally figure out what it is you need
You better think of me
No no no no

When I get up
I feel the rhythm in my fingers
I get up - I hear the rhythm in my laughter
Take a second look
You might find that I am stronger
Take a second look
You might find that you are stronger

Imagination inspiration
It's only fair that I tell you
I plan on leaving here tonight with my pride
It gets me every time with my pride
I'm proud to be I'm proud to be me

    General CommentYea, that's one of the best lines ever.
    I also like, "I plan on leaving here tonight with my pride".

    General Commentmy favorite part is:
    "tellll me.
    oh, you've gotta tell me..."

    ...which for some reason, is not included in the lyrics posted up.
    i don't understand why people post lyrics that skips parts....
    especially when they're the best part of the song.

    General CommentThis song is perhaps more literal than alot of theirs, but i love it. I find it uplifting and i definitely relate to it, it has such strength to it. "Fine, tell them who you think you are. Fine, tell them fine is what you are."

    Heh heh - It always makes me laugh though when tegan/sara (i don't know whose this one is) gets into the NO NO NONONONO..part. She does it so well, but i often wonder what compelled her to go so nuts in that part.

    General Commenti agree with evapor8ed.

    because they are lesbains this song is about them figuring out who they really are and being able to embrace it and be proud to be gay.

    General CommentMy favorite Tegan and Sara song!! This was one of the first songs I heard from them, before I even knew they were gay. This is such a strong solid song with a blatant and proud message... She sounds so proud and forthcoming of herself when she sings. And I feel proud to scream this song at the top of my lungs with her and tell everyone FINE IS WHAT I AM, I'M PROUD TO BE ME! (and proud to be gay, duh) This is my persoanl anthem!
