People Are Different

Album: Can't Say I Ain't Country (2019)
  • White collar, blue collar, hillbilly, high dollar
    Hot head, pot head, non-believer, holy water
    Big city, small town, y'all take a look around
    People are different

    Heavy metal, hip hop, steel toe, flip flops
    Sip it slow, cold beer, hits you fast, whiskey shot
    Accent, North, South, good as gold, sailor mouth
    People are different

    Yeah, we all know it's true
    But it don't mean that me and you

    Can't walk down the street and smile at a stranger
    Heart on your sleeve and love thy neighbor
    No matter what shape, no matter what color
    Break bread instead of fighting each other
    Slip on a pair of another man's shoes
    You'll see by the time you get back
    This whole world would be a whole lot better place
    If we'd all just embrace the fact
    That people are different
    People are different

    Left wing, right wing, jailhouse, freedom ring
    Old school, new school, everything in between
    Like a snowflake, no fingerprint the same
    And people are different

    I wish that it was something that we all understood
    Lord knows it'd do us all some good

    To walk down the street and smile at a stranger
    Heart on your sleeve and love thy neighbor
    No matter what shape, no matter what color
    Break bread instead of fighting each other
    Slip on a pair of another man's shoes
    You'll see by the time you get back
    This whole world would be a whole lot better place
    If we'd all just embrace the fact
    That people are different
    Yeah, people are different

    You can turn on the TV
    Change the channel if you don't like what you see
    You can get your money back if it ain't your size
    You can throw it in the trash if you don't like it
    But listen
    People are different

    So walk down the street and smile at a stranger
    Heart on your sleeve and love thy neighbor
    No matter what shape, no matter what color
    Break bread instead of fighting each other
    Slip on a pair of another man's shoes
    You'll see by the time you get back
    This whole world would be a whole lot better place
    If we'd all just embrace the fact
    That people are different
    People are different
    People are different
    Whoa, whoa, yeah Writer/s: Hillary Lee Lindsey, Mark L. Holman, Michael Hardy
