  • Hoping for a life more sweeter
    Instead I'm just a story repeating
    Why do I fear with skin dark as night?
    Can't feel peace with those judging eyes

    I thought we moved on from the darker days
    Did the words of the King disappear in the air
    Like a butterfly?
    Somebody should hand you a felony
    'Cause you stole from me
    My chance to be

    Hoping for a life more sweeter
    Instead I'm just a story repeating
    Why do I fear with skin dark as night?
    Can't feel peace with those judging eyes

    The tears of my Mother rain, rain over me
    My sisters and my brothers sing, sing over me
    And I wish I had another day
    But it's just another day

    Hoping for a life more sweeter
    Instead I'm just a story repeating
    Why do I fear with skin dark as night?
    Can't feel peace with those judging eyes
