Starts With Me Lyrics

[Listen, looking out over this audience tonight, I just gottta tell you
Denver, you look beautiful in all your diversity tonight
I’ve always believed that there’s richness in diversity
I’ve always believed we’re better together than separated
And I’ve always believed that we the believers, we should be leading the way in what real love looks like. 
I gotta be honest with you, sometimes I get online or turn the news on the television and man sometimes I just gotta shut it off. Cause it makes me, makes me start believing that we can’t make it together. But then I look up on this stage and see these people that I travel with, been running with for 15 years. And look, all of us different upbringings, different colors of skin. Listen, If we can live together and make it together on a tour bus, surely we can make it in a city, or a state, or a town or a nation. The truth is, there’s no law the government can pass that brings us together. A song can’t bring us together. Coming together comes down to you and me.]
 
(One day
This nation will rise up
Rise up)
 
There's a million reasons to hesitate
With a history that's filled with hate
Have we ever been united states?
I wonder (oh, oh, oh)
So who can blame us for the doubt
Forgive me if I think out loud
But we're just as just won't come around
I wonder (oh, oh, oh)
 
I was born with two, dirty hands
Something my daddy didn't understand
Something his daddy didn't understand
So it starts with me
I was raised with distrust, in my heart
Momma told me we're in worlds apart
Her momma told her don't even bother
So it starts with me
 
'Cause we can be free, yeah I know that
Let's try to fix the things that's been broke down
'Cause we can be free, yeah I know that
And it starts with me
[Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Aaron Cole]
 
With a heavy road in front of us
And a system that has lost our trust
Can we ever find the strength to rise from ashes?
And looking at the heart of it
The healing nearly can't begin
Without confession and forgiveness and compassion
 
I was born with two, dirty hands
Something my daddy didn't understand
Something his daddy didn't understand
So it starts with me
I was raised with distrust, in my heart
Momma told me we're in worlds apart
Her momma told her don't even bother
So it starts with me
 
'Cause we can be free, yeah I know that
Let's try to fix the things that's been broke down
'Cause we can be free, yeah I know that
And it starts with me
'Cause we can be free, yeah I know that
Let's try to fix the things that's been broke down
'Cause we can be free, yeah I know that
And it starts with me
 
Can you feel it in your heart tonight? (freedom)
Love is gonna move the needle (freedom)
I can feel it in my heart tonight (freedom)
Oh, yeah
I need you, you need me
One more step, almost free (Almost free, almost free)
Say I need you and you need me
Father give us eyes to see
Yeah, gives us eyes to see
 
'Cause we can be free, we can be free
We can be free, yeah I know that
And it starts with me
We can be free, yeah 
We can be free, yeah I know that
And it starts with me
