Music + Lyrics: Different Like Me (Unreleased)

If you saw the acoustic iPhone video of my unreleased song, Different Like Me, over on Instagram or Facebook, you'll find the lyrics here. I don't have much to say about the song; perhaps it can speak for itself.

Different Like Me
By Abbye West Pates

Build your buildings taller
ring your bells louder
I bet they'll all come running
They always do come running

Pulpits made for preaching
Bibles made for teaching
This is the final word
God bless this final word

Don't you see the same sun rising
Same big river runnin'
Oh, you can't be all that different from me
Can you love someone different like me

Circle up the wagons
Give 'em all a slogan
Shout it loud from the inside
Oh, I'm sure you'll change our minds

Don't we see the same sun rising 
Same big river runnin' 
Oh, you can't be all that different from me 
Can you love someone different like me

Well, I used to be one of you
Oh, I know you well
Sister, you're not that different from me
Oh, can you love someone different like me

Don't we see the same sun rising  
Same big river runnin'  
Oh, you can't be all that different from me  
Can you love someone different like me

We both use our lungs for singing
Raise our hands to heaven
Lookin' for the right way to live

Don't you see the same sun rising 
Same big river runnin' 
Oh, you can't be all that different from me 
No, you can't be all that different like me
Oh, can you love someone different like me
