  • If all I was was black
    Looking at you, you might look past

    All the love I give (got love to give)
    I've got natural gifts (got natural gifts)
    Got perspective (got perspective)
    Might make your shift (the way you look at it)

    I've got love
    Got love

    If all I did was cry
    If all that feeling got left behind

    I'd worry about you (what's in your mind)
    I'd never live my life (be wasting my time)
    Oh, I won't be afraid (I won't be afraid)
    If that's how you wanna stay (how you wanna stay)

    I've got the love
    Got love

    If all I was was black
    Don't you wanna know me more than that?

    All the love I give (got love to give)
    Got natural gifts (got natural gifts)
    I've got perspective (got perspective)
    Might make your shift (the way you look at it)

    I've got the love, love
    Got love

    And it's time for more to love, mmm
    Oh, it's time, it's time, for more love

    All the love I give (got love to give)
    I've got natural gifts (got natural gifts)
    I've got perspective (got perspective)
    Just might make your shift (the way you look at it)

    I've got love, love
    I've got love
    And it's time for more to love Writer/s: Jeff Tweedy, Mavis Staples
