Same Shoes

from by Abraham Mwinda



Same shoes: Written by Abraham Mwinda

Verse 1
His father never liked him and he knew it all along
His mother was ashamed to call him son
They never held his hand in public they never showered him with love
So he grew up believing that something's wrong with him
and that's just how life goes

He had a tough time making friends
Never seemed to quite fit in
Nobody seemed to understand
they all just made fun of him
They never tried to give him a chance-no, and take the time to know him
So he grew up feeling like a mistake
Every night he cried himself to sleep

It could have been you it could have been me
Walking in the same shoes
We don't get to choose our destiny
If we win or lose
Nobody is immune
to a broken heart
Let's not play better than you
to the least of us

Verse 2
She lost her family in war,
to save her life she was forced to flee
Home could never be home no-more even if she wished for it to be-no
So she went looking, for freedom
In foreign countries
But They made her feel like she don't belong,
Made her feel like it's her fault
that she's a refugee

Verse 3
Cut me some slack man, don't you judge/
we can't all be the same, white and black/
see The beauty of a rainbow is that it's got different colors/
that somehow find harmony with one another/
and I think that this
came along with a couple of ingredients/
maybe, a little more
mercy love and grace?/
see the tall can fall the short can stand/
we’re all, prone to pain you gotta understand/
we complement one another/
nobody’s perfect nobody’s better than another man/
we compliment one another/nobody's perfect nobody's better than another "chekidi!"
