Ruth b - If i have a son

If I have a son
I'll teach him to be brave
'Cause if I have a son
He's never really safe
And when you run to the corner store for a snack
I wanna know that you'll make it back home
Home

Your skin, it glitters like gold
There's love inside of your soul
But no matter what you say, no matter what you do
This world will never be as friendly to you
I wanna keep you close, I wanna keep you safe
I hope I see the day where I don't have to pray
Every time you go
Every time you go

And if I have a girl
I'll teach her to be strong
'Cause even when you're right
They'll tell you that you're wrong
And if you want something you'll work twice as hard
'Cause that's the only way we get far
Far


Your skin, it glitters like gold
There's love inside of your soul
But no matter what you say, no matter what you do
This world will never be as friendly to you
I wanna keep you close, I wanna keep you safe
I hope I see the day where I don't have to pray
Every time you go
Every time you go

I saw a man lose his life
All 'cause his skin looked like mine
I hope the world makes a change
So when you get here it's not the same
Same

Your skin, it glitters like gold
There's love inside of your soul
But no matter what you say, no matter what you do
This world will never be as friendly to you
I wanna keep you close, I wanna keep you safe
I hope I see the day where I don't have to pray
Every time you go, ooh
Every time you go

If I have a son
I'll teach him to be brave
'Cause if I have a son
He's never really safe
