• Youth campaigners film:  “We can’t back down”

    24th April 2014 | News | Claire
  • I am continually impressed by the monumental effort that Devon teenagers are going to, to try and save the youth service.

    The film is set to the soundtrack of “We can’t back down” by Demi Lovato, which tie in perfectly to the message that the campaigners are aiming to get across.

    Here are the lyrics:

    Don’t close your eyes
    We’re all in this together
    Wherever we draw the line
    We’re not gonna straddle across it, or lose it

    We can’t back down
    There’s too much at stake
    This is serious
    Don’t walk away

    We can’t pretend it’s not happening
    In our own backyard
    Our own home plate
    (No way)
    We’ve been called out

    Do you hear your name?
    I’m not confused
    Don’t walk away
    Don’t walk away, yeah

    We got a situation that we can’t ignore
    ‘Cause ignorance is not bliss
    We don’t have to take this, no

    We can’t back down
    There’s too much at stake
    This is serious
    Don’t walk away

    We can’t pretend it’s not happening
    In our own backyard
    Our own home plate
    We’ve been called out

    Do you hear your name?
    I’m not confused
    Let’s win this thing
    We can’t back down

    We can’t back down
    Not right now
    We can’t back down
