lyrics

This land is your land
This land is my land too
Doesn't mean the same
As it does to you
You came with nothing
You have everything to lose
This land was made for me and you
This land was made for me and you

Arbitrary lines
Between what's yours and mine
And I was born on fortune's side
Had no reason to choose
Me instead of you
What am I to do

Cause it feels like it's all out of my hands
So much that I'll never understand

This land is your land
This land is my land too
Doesn't mean the same
As it does to you
You came with nothing
You have everything to lose
This land was made for me and you

Tell me how it feels
Cause it feels like I'll never understand

Been afraid to speak
Hiding on my knees
Broken heart in secrecy
But I can't remain tongue-tied
Can't pretend I'm blind
Can't keep letting them shield my eyes

It feels like it's all out of my hands
So much that I'll never understand

This land is your land
This land is my land too
Doesn't mean the same
As it does to you
You came with nothing
You have everything to lose
This land was made for me and you

Tell me how it feels
I'm listening
Tell me how it feels
I wanna understand
Tell me how it feels
Tell me how it feels
Cause it feels like I'll never understand

Cause it feels like I wanna take your hand
And I know I'll never understand
But can we all just try to understand
Can we walk together in this promise land

Is your land
Is my land
Tell me how it feels
Tell me how it feels
I wanna understand
