Janine – Call Yourself a Lover Lyrics

Call Yourself a Lover By Janine

Too many mothers crying
People dying on our phones
Honestly I’m scared the ones I love won’t make it home
When they’re walking or driving or in their own homes
Law in their face justice leaves them alone
It ain’t right, it ain’t right

When if it was your mother, your brother, your son or your lover
Your father, your daughter, your sister, your friend
I don’t think you’d sit back

So If you look like me and you don’t wanna speak
Don’t call yourself a lover
Don’t call yourself a lover
Change needs us, I’m begging you please stand up
And call yourself a lover
Call yourself a lover

Don’t tell somebody bleeding
How their supposed to bleed
Quoting Luke 6:39 but ignoring those in need
Their shooting EMT’s
Kids getting candy
Garner and Floyd said that they can’t breathe
When did signing the wrong check
Become signing your own death?

When if it was your mother, your brother, your son or your lover
Your father, your daughter, your sister, your friend
I don’t think you’d sit back

So If you look like me and you don’t wanna speak
Don’t call yourself a lover
Don’t call yourself a lover
Change needs us, I’m begging you please stand up
And call yourself a lover
Call yourself a lover

Skin tones don’t deserve gravestones
It’s time to make a change in our history
Cause if one life is not treated equal
Theres no way that all lives could ever be
Skin tones don’t deserve gravestones
It’s time to make a change in our history
Cause if one life is not treated equal
Theres no way that all lives could ever be

So If you look like me and you don’t wanna speak
Don’t call yourself a lover
Don’t call yourself a lover
Change needs us, I’m begging you please stand up
And call yourself a lover
Call yourself a lover
So If you look like me and you don’t wanna speak
Don’t call yourself a lover
Don’t call yourself a lover
Change needs us, I’m begging you please stand up
And call yourself a lover
Call yourself a lover
