Skin I'm In Lyrics - Cameo

Review The Song (3)



Cameo


Who’s this face in the mirror that I see
Sometimes confused by the double standards of society
And maybe I’m wrong about the way I feel
But then will somebody tell me what is really real

Now I respect myself
I respect you too, but in the end it’s got to be
Do unto me as I do to you
Now I try to tell you it’s time
Separate our wants from our desire
Separate the truth from the lie
to live like people so inspire

It’s the world who’s out to see
we should respect humanity
And it one time seemed to be we could live together peacefully
If we have truth we can survive
sponsored links
And for that our forefathers have died
It should be immoral or a sin
If it is according to the skin I’m in
Skin I’m in

tell me how many times, how many times can i
Adjust my attitude to reach & touch the sky
Basic love is the creed by which I live
But then sometimes I wonder just how much a man can give
Gross injustices surround me from the highest levels of power
and you say these are the people I depend on for my survival
is it for real or am I seeing shadows in the dark
I’ll let you tell me, can u tell me brother
tell me now

It’s the world who’s out to see
Basic respect humanity
I’m just trying to be realistic without becoming pessimistic
If we have hope we can survive
A damn good reason to stay alive
Is it immoral or a sin
It seems to be according to the skin I’m in
Skin I’m in

It’s the world who’s out to see
Basic respect humanity
I’m just trying to be for real in a world with less appeal
I'm so frustrated and flustered
At what has been reduced to justice
It is immoral or a sin
If it is according to the skin I’m in
Skin I’m in

One …..world…. Love…….people

fabulous, timeless and so true!!!!!!!!!!!! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/25/11

Loooooooooove so much this tune. Moi aussi j'ai d'abord jeune aimé le beat, le flow, la ligne de souffle, la basse...
Mais c'est la première fois que je lis le lyrics sur ce site (merci!!!) et je redecouvre cette chanson....
Fabuleux et intemporel et profondement vrai partout dans le monde, pas qu'en Amerique.
Le respect est dû à toute l'humanité, pas à certaines categorie de personne en fonction de leur peau.

I fell in love with this song years ago as a child but it was the instruments that I could hear then. Years later as an adult I looked and found the song again and it was as if it was new to me all over again! The lyrics (most of all) along with real band music, i.e. the horn section, bass & electric guitar, drums, etc,etc. are what I hear today. It was as if I had heard it again for the first time because the lyrics were what was so profound to me. Larry Blackmon was always my favorite cod piece wearing guitarist. This brotha is so deep for what he was stating even back then. This cut is so deep because there are so many of us Black, White,Latino, Mexican, Asian, Indian,etc.,etc. who can feel where he is coming from right now in 2008. Although these lyrics were written years ago even today we are still striving to accomplish what it was he was talking about for example: It’s the world who’s out to see Basic respect humanity I’m just trying to be for real in a world with less appeal I'm so frustrated and flustered At what has been reduced to justice
It is immoral or a sin If it is according to the skin I’m in. Then if you keep listening you begin to think about how bad our government has be behaving & just the present state of our economy and you then feel what he means when he states in the lyrics:Gross injustices surround me from the highest levels of power and you say these are the people I depend on for my survival.
After sharing just those few lyrics there really is nothing left to say. So I will leave you with yet another verse to think on and you tell me what you think......

It’s the world who’s out to see
we should respect humanity
And it one time seemed to be we could live together peacefully
If we have truth we can survive
And for that our forefathers have died
It should be immoral or a sin
If it is according to the skin I’m in
Skin I’m in....One …..world….One Love…….One..people...One …..world….One Love…….One..people....One …..world….One Love…….One..people...One …..world….One Love…….One..people....One …..world…. Love…….One..people....One …..world….
