Verse

I woke up this morning
On the wrong side of the floor
And I looked out my window
And saw a day that looked exactly like the one before

And I did not know
I did not know
What all of the fighting was for
And I did not know
I did not know
Would you tell me?

Verse
I see the different races, I see the different faces
of all the people I’ve seen before
I stare at my shoes like everybody else
refusing to say hello.

And I did not know
I did not know
What all of the silence was for
And I did not know
I did not know
Would you tell me?

Chorus
And I say don’t you think that heart will be fine
And I say don’t you think that heart will be fine
You ……..
You………
I wont live that way

Verse
I woke up the next morning
on the other side of the floor
And I decided I wasn’t going to deal
with racism anymore

And I did not know
I did not know
What all of the anger was for
And I did not know
I did not know
Would you tell me?


I see the different races,
I see the different faces
Of all the people I’ve seen before
I stare at my shoes like everybody else
Refusing to say hello.

And I did not know
I did not know
What all of the ignorance was for
And I did not know
I did not know
Would you tell me?

Chorus

Bridge
And I walked along these city streets so many times before and I wanted to tell you something, tell you something
i didn't and I want to be free
i said i said, why can't you hear me
I said I said
Why can’t you hear me?

And I say don’t you think that heart will be fine
And I say don’t you think that heart will be fine
You ……..
U………n-i-t-y
I wont live that way
