You raise me up

«You raise me up» «You raise me up» played on the radio It made me feel good, and just a little bit sad Sad because when we lift each other up We raise us up, by lowering someone else Those we don’t agree with Everyone who smell of garlic Those who don’t fit, fit in Fit in our neighbourhood Doesn’t fit in the White House I saw “You raise me up” on YouTube The crowd sang; lighters lit up the night The next song made me really feel sad “Bridge over troubled water” The singer was pitch perfect The choir, and the crowd, was there The orchestra played to perfection I have seen many bridges; walked them too Large and small, old and new Had we only been so good at Building bridges between people Over troubled waters
