Let them live

(Intro) Let them live Why do we have to kill Let them live Why do we have to kill Verse 1 I am so broken ?? hearted Don't even know where it started How do you react To an elegant color BLACK Why are we being judged by our skin Thought we were out here to win Instead of always blaming others We have to blame each other Jealousy and intimidation is real No longer happy for each other Just trying to kill Not making it past 25 Short lived We need our land to heal (Chorus) Let them live Why do we have to kill Let them live Why do we have to kill Verse 2 We got to learn to have each other's back To get this nation back on track It's sad it's not to late What are we doing A world full of hate A baby girl robbed of her life at 8 A few more lost their lives so suddenly Who would've been great Great lawyers doctors and so much more Tell me how did they end up in somebody's morgue? How are we shooting destroying things and looting When asking children what they want to be when they grow up They said alive Broke my heart I just cried No future just wanted to survive Let's change that Give them the tools to be whatever they want to (Chorus) Let them live Why do we have to kill Let them live Why do we have to kill Bridge I'm tired of the hate Let's all be great Put the Lord first We are grateful it could be worse (Repeat 1x) Chorus Let them live Why do we have to kill Let them live Why do we have to kill Repeat 2x until chorus fades Written by: Concetta Hardnett 07/12/2020
