Lyrics Ruth B. - If I Have A Son

If I Have A Son
by Ruth B

if i have a son i'll teach him to be brave
cuz 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
ho-o-ome...

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
cuz even when you're right, they'll tell you that you're wrong
and if you want something you'll work twice as hard
cuz that's the only way we get far
fa-a-ar...

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 cuz his skin looked like mine
i hope the world makes a change
so when you get here it's not the same
sa-a-ame...

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
