Lyrics

What is it like?

I am a child of America
The land of the free and the brave
Where we sing the blues
What is it like for you?
Here I was raised extravagance
We had so much that
I still don’t know what to choose
What is it like for you?
Living the way you do
What is it like to be you?
I have a past, my inheritance
I can’t escape all the ways that
It shapes my view
What is it like for you?
I have faith, and it teaches me
Not to condemn till I’ve been
In another’s shoes
What is it like for you?
Seeing the way you do
What is it like to be you?

If I knew, I would hold the key
To a friend for life, a world at peace
It begins with those who have
the grace to ask

I have a heart... It’s been broken
Can you be honest enough to say yours is too?
What is it like for you?
I know what I’ve been through…
There is the risk in the question, ‘cause
Seeing what you see
Would force me to face myself
As if I were someone else
I might have to ask for help
If I had to face myself

But when I do, I will hold the key
To a friend for life, and inner peace
It begins with those who have
the grace to ask…
What is it like to be you?
