    Lyrics

    This is just a song to say
    That I'm proud for what they are
    And I hope my world can take me
    Half that far

    Way back in mccarthy's day
    My parents left the usa
    Young rebellious lovers
    They left behind a nation far too proud
    And powerful to say
    That love transcends all colors
    Some black men turned against my father
    Some white men turned against my mother
    Each race has their place they all would say

    And with a past so battle worn
    And a future begging to be born
    They found a life that's growing still today

    And glancing thru the years
    And living thru their fears
    I hope they can accept my goals
    A bit confused, a bit unclear

    And all the years behind me now
    Seem like a book I've read and yet somehow
    I still don't understand all the words
    All the black and all the white
    That rest in me that make me fight
    Remind me of all the knowledge left to learn
    Still some black men turned against my father
    Some white men turned against my mother
    Each race has their place they all would say
    With a past so battle worn
    And a future begging to be born
    They found a life that's growing still today

    And glancing thru the years
    And living thru their fears
    I hope they can accept my goals
    A bit confused, a bit unclear

    This is just a song to say that I'm proud for what they are
    And I hope my world can take me half that far
