"WE WON'T FORGET YOU"

Shaya
not long ago our people were taken away from their homes, our culture was fading

Tiffany
left on our own, so many changes the future unknown, forced into praying

Akita
put in the dark, and left all alone living in fear, the shadows were cold some ran away, and some made it home our people were strong, our people were bold

Kaya
in a dark room, they were feeling punished it's a hard truth, that we have to stomach gave an education but it really wasn't now we look ahead, we can start the drumming

Riley
learning language through song and dance the pain they felt, let's honour that by being great, and keeping track of what elders teach, let's walk the path

Mayson
to the Shuswap Nation the future is in our hands it may take some patience it is our home, it is our land

Cash
in our lifetime, we will celebrate who we are like everyday there's so much knowledge in the way we live our lives, so we're giving thanks

Chorus
Dah-eh-mehs-lep-eh-dem
we won't forget you
Dah-eh-mehs-lep-eh-dem
we won't forget you
You were sitting in the dark now we're letting in the light
oh-Tqelt Kukpi oh-Tqelt 
Kukpi
we found our love now everything is fine you were sitting in the dark now we're letting in the light

Mayson now we feel free, dreaming and wishing we walk on the land, hunting and fishing
Tyra our language is taught through drumming and singing but it's still so sad, our people go missing

Trynity
is there an end to all of this madness? finding the strength through all this sadness

Denaya
put troubles aside, emotions we balance by showing our voices, we got the talents

Semiah
this is the start of new life we'll undo the wrongs and we will choose right our home is here and it is so bright we see the rivers, we'll never lose sight

Tiffany
bringing back the traditions we sing and rap for the mission the destination is living and innovation for the children

Cash
in our lifetime, we will celebrate who we are like everyday there's so much knowledge in the way we live our lives, so we're giving thanks

Chorus
Dah-eh-mehs-lep-eh-dem
we won't forget you
Dah-eh-mehs-lep-eh-dem
we won't forget you
You were sitting in the dark
now we're letting in the light
oh-Tqelt Kukpi oh-Tqelt Kukpi
we found our love
now everything is fine
you were sitting in the dark now we're letting in the light

Bridge
Our school's a place we go
we feel safe and we feel better again
a home away from home
we're happy here and to be together again
you've shown there's always hope
when tough times get you down, let us begin
and walk the longest road we are here with you,
we'll never forget
No No No No No No we'll never forget never forget never forget

Chrous
Dah-eh-mehs-lep-eh-dem
we won't forget you
Dah-eh-mehs-lep-eh-dem we won't forget you
You were sitting in the dark
now we're letting in the light
oh-Tqelt Kukpi oh-Tqelt Kukpi
we found our love
now everything is fine
you were sitting in the dark
now we're letting in the light
