A child of color singing away
Like there is no tomorrow or a next day;
You sound sincere with your godly voice
Impacting the young to make the right choice.
IT'S NOT FUNNY!
Times are changing and the world is flaming,
from disappointment, it's so sad that we can't even see it.
You are caught in a brawl with your enemy fearing
The peace will never come;
Would i be perfect if my name was different?
Would i be perfect if my parents were someone else?
Would i be perfect if my race was different?
Would i be perfect if i had straighter and longer hair?
There was a time way before you said hello to me.
You were tall and (short) thin and beautiful.
Make-up touched your skin with the stroke of a brush.
You were light skinned (and)
Can you feel me?
I’m disappearing from the world
Because of what’s going on today.
Little talk all action wonder if its
Through the mirror i see my tears flow a thousand miles away from me.
Deep inside me i feel a fear holding me back,
that keeps pulling me tighter and tighter as the days go by.
I can't even feel pain, happiness, or weakness because of the hold it has on me.
Fast feet and trickling rain
Viewing all this from my windowpane.
Upbeat children constantly singing in the rain.
Running wild in the streets too hard to tame.
Always smiling always frowning
Always ready to paint the town.
Never able to keep her down.
But she slowly fades away.
You've open the door face full of mystery.
Coming full force towards me with something that seems so new to me.
Smiling with grace you began to take control.
Slowly gliding across the ball room floor.
