Black Man In A White World

Album: Love & Hate (2016)
  • I've been low, I've been high
    I've been told all my life
    I've got nothing left to pray
    I've got nothing left to say

    All the black men in a white world
    All the black men in a white world
    All the black men in a white world
    All the black men in a white

    I'm in love but I'm still sad
    I've found peace but I'm not glad
    All my nights and all my days
    I've been trying the wrong way

    I'm a black man in a white world
    I'm a black man in a white world
    I'm a black man in a white world
    I'm a black man in a white world

    I feel like I've been here before
    I feel that knocking on my door
    I feel like I've been here before
    I feel that knocking on my door
    And I've lost everything I had
    And I'm not angry and I'm not mad

    I'm a black man in a white world
    I'm a black man in a white world
    I'm a black man in a white world
    I'm a black man in a white world
    I'm a black man in a white world
    I'm a black man in a white world
    I'm a black man in a white world
    I'm a black man in a white world
    I'm a black man in a white world

    I've been low and I've been high
    I've been told all my life
    I've got nothing here to pray
    And I've got nothing left to say

    I'm a black man in a white world
    I'm a black man in a white world
    I'm a black man in a white world
    I'm a black man in a white world

    I'm in love but I'm still sad
    I've found peace but I'm not glad
    All my nights and all my days
    I've been trying the wrong way
    I don't mind who I am (I'm a black man in a white world, I'm a black man in a white world))
    I don't mind who you are (I'm a black man in a white world, I'm a black man in a white world))
    I'm not wrong, I'm not wrong (I'm a black man in a white world, I'm a black man in a white world))
    Oh it's alright, it's alright (I'm a black man in a white world, I'm a black man in a white world)
    Oh it's alright (I'm a black man in a white world)

    Oh it's alright (I'm a black man in a white world, I'm a black man in a white world)
    It's alright (I'm a black man in a white world, I'm a black man in a white world)
    (I'm a black man in a white world, I'm a black man in a white world)
    (I'm a black man in a white world, I'm a black man in a white world)
    (I'm a black man in a white world, I'm a black man in a white world)
    (I'm a black man in a white world, I'm a black man in a white world)
    (I'm a black man in a white world, I'm a black man in a white world)
    (I'm a black man in a white world, I'm a black man in a white world)
    (I'm a black man in a white world, I'm a black man in a white world)
    (I'm a black man in a white world, I'm a black man in a white world)
    (I'm a black man in a white world, I'm a black man in a white world)
    (I'm a black man in a white world, I'm a black man in a white world)
