What if when you woke up you looked just like everyone.
Everybody talked the same and walked the same.
All your thoughts would come undone.
What if when you tumbled out of bed you’re like a puppet on a string?
Waiting for the world to tell you how to feel and tell you what to think.
I don’t look like, I don’t think like, I don’t act like you
I don’t want to be the same or look same or never bein true
You don’t look like, you don’t think like, you don’t act like me
You don’t want to be the same look the same never bein free
But What if I could listen to you though what your sayin is not what I believe.
What if we move closer step across that great divide
Taking comfort in our differences and reigning in our pride.
What if we could cherish every heart that beats, respect for every one
Free to live & sing our story, the way they we want it sung
Each person in this puzzle of life, so different and so much alike
Each color and texture defined by our shadows and light, It’s One Light
