Music and lyrics by David Beldock and Peggy Watson


I've been thinking of his dream, and the truth and what's right,
and everyone knows it's well past the time... to begin
To deal with the fact that if you're here and you're black,
there's people that hate you and kill you because of your skin
Now that's where we're at, so what are we gonna do?
I don't know what it's like to be you

Well, I always believed that I had a good heart, I was fair, I was kind,
I was smart, but now I can see
That even with eyes open wide I was willfully blind cause
it happened to you, didn't happen to me
And that's where we're at, what should we do?
I don't know what it's like to be you

There may come a time, later on down the road, when we look at each other as people instead of the other
Reach in our minds, see the dream not to hate anymore
Could be where we're at, if we believed it was true
But I don't know what it's like
Gotta know what it's like
I don't know what it's like
to be you
