India.arie - Better Way

rate me

<BR>

Yeah,yeah <br>

Oooooooh Ooooh <br>

Let my people go <br>

<br>

Oooooooh Oooh oh oh <br>

Let my people go <br>

<br>

In the swamps of New Orleans <br>

The rain came pouring down <br>

So heavy was the water <br>

That the walls came crashing down <br>

Now I know a survivor <br>

But how the hell you justify <br>

Leaving 100,000 people in water that high <br>

Just struggling for their lives <br>

<br>

<i>[chorus]</i> <br>

I know there's got to be a <br>

Better way <br>

I know there's got to be a <br>

Better way <br>

I know there's got to be a <br>

Better way <br>

And we've got to find it <br>

(Stand up) we've got to find it <br>

(Or fall down) we've got to find it <br>

<br>

Politicians are screaming <br>

They say we've got a reason for war <br>

So many people are dying <br>

And we ain't even sure what for <br>

Is it because he's a Muslim? <br>

Tell me is it democracy or is it the oath <br>

It's on the news every day <br>

One paycheck away <br>

And the President's on the golf course <br>

<br>

<i>[chorus]</i> <br>

I know there's got to be a <br>

Better way <br>

I know there's got to be a <br>

Better way <br>

I know there's got to be a <br>

Better way <br>

And we've got to find it <br>

(You got to stand together) we've got to find it <br>

(Or we coud fall apart) we've got to find it <br>

<br>

Sweet buttered craw dad <br>

Delta bread <br>

Hot pepper soul that's been sold out <br>

Lives that were taken before they found out <br>

What life was all about <br>

He's a genius with the lyrics <br>

Started young sipping syrup <br>

And it hurts me to my soul <br>

The way he drinks away the pain <br>

The world's going to lose him <br>

Another young superhero <br>

<br>

We've got to find it <i>[x8]</i><br>

<br>

I see the children on TV <br>

It's become a sign of the times <br>

Glorifying their bodies <br>

Something just don't feel right <br>

Still we keep pretending <br>

That boys and girls are men and women <br>

We watch it and we call it entertainment <br>

And everything is okay as long as somebody's getting paid <br>

<br>

<i>[chorus]</i> <br>

I know there's got to be a <br>

Better way <br>

I know there's got to be a <br>

Better way <br>

There's got to be a <br>

Better way <br>

And we've got to find it <br>

We've got to find it <br>

We've got to find it<br>

<BR><BR>
