Only A Song Lyrics

I wouldn't make a sound if I wasn't
so angry.

I wouldn't be running if there wasn't so far
to go.

I wouldn't keep on if there wasn't something
worth keeping.

I want to believe that
this mountain can be moved.

But this is only a song...
it can't change the world.

I get a little scared when I'm driving through
the ghetto.

There's a part of me
that wants to hide;

there's a part of me
that wants to move in. Because even though

I grew up in the suburbs, I didn't really grow
until I learned how so many others lived.

But this is only a song...
it can't change the world.

I'm digging, digging deep
in myself.

but who needs a shovel
when you have a little boy like mine?

This ain't the world
that I want to give him;

people racing around in cars,
and cities you can't even walk across.

This is only a song...
it can't change the world.

I've been thinking about Providence-
and craving a Root Beer Float.

I didn't make these rules, but it's come time for us
to row this boat!

And on the horizon I see windmills
spouting up in rows.

There's young folks farming, and a few
that are going to vote.

But this is only a song...
it can't change the world.

So why try?
Why even sing at all?

I picture the Harlem Globetrotters dancing
like mosquitoes with a basketball.

Because there is beauty in freedom,
and folks like me came over on boats,

flew in on planes, crawled under fences,
and fought wars, just to find a place

to be free.

But this is only a song...
it can't change the world.

This is only a song...
it can't change the world.

This is only a song...
it can't change the world.
