Harvey Milk, Harvey Milk
Like satin over silk
You were loved by men so badly
You had the man in the street
Picking shit up off the street
Just to believe in something more
Than yesterday
Would I believe you, Harvey Milk?

Harvey Milk
Harvey Milk
Oh, you meant to be
A bigger part of me
Said humanity to you
But they gunned you down
Now what to do but wonder Harvey Milk

Harvey Milk, Harvey Milk
If the blood that you spilt was worth the stain
I'm sure you'd spill it gladly
In a cold cup of tea
Counting mountains by degrees
When you were young
I wonder what you wanted to be
I wonder Harvey Milk

Harvey Milk
Harvey Milk
Oh, you meant to be
A bigger part of me
Said humanity to you
But they gunned you down
Now what to do but wonder Harvey Milk

Harvey Milk, Harvey Milk
What's another word for guilt
When lessons learned have all been learned so badly
What in willing manner spoke
Is worth but little till it's wrote
And writ again in marble
Until nobody stops to marvel
So will it take another Harvey Milk?

Harvey Milk
Harvey Milk
Oh, you meant to be
A bigger part of me
Said humanity to you
But they gunned you down
Now what to do but wonder Harvey Milk

But I'm a fool
As people marching makes me nervous
The same way righteousness
Makes me nauseous
Even when it's right
Give me cinemas on Saturday night
And I will call you in the morning
With the reasons you were right
