I Never Said (part 2)

I never said you couldn’t make choices

But try to choose what’s best for all

No one’s life is easy

They may need your help to get along

I never said you can’t be happy

I never said how much to give

I never said become a hermit

I never said you couldn’t live

 

You might say who cares what people do?

What’s it to you?

But sooner or later one of these things

Is gonna effect you

 

I never said marry a divorce

I never said be alone

There are things you can’t see

On the road that leads back home

I never said you should intermarry

Just to make a statement out of protest

True love is not Tom, Dick or Harry

It’s perfect kindness at its best

 

If all you love is genitalia

If all you love is the chase

You’ll have no honor memorabilia

You’ll have much more than just disgrace

What you can see can be deceiving

What you can prove is how it is

You don’t have to be believing

But the truth is often rude

 

I never said people aren’t equal

But we cling to our own

Be it tribal, ethnic or religious

Pass it on to generations to come

I never said one race is better

I never said not to care

We are all unique and different

With many traits we all share
