H.E.R. – I Can’t Breathe Lyrics

I Can’t Breathe By H.E.R.

Started a war screaming “Peace” at the same time
All the corruption, injustice, the same crimes
Always a problem if we do or don’t
Findin’ we, nah, we don’t have the same rights
What is a gun to a man that surrenders?
What’s it gonna take for someone to defend us?
If we all agree that we’re equal as people
Then why can’t we see what is evil?

I can’t breathe
You’re taking my life from me
I can’t breathe
Will anyone fight for me?
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh

How do we cope when we don’t love each other?
Where is the hope and the empathy?
How do we judge off the color?
The structure was made to make us the enemy
Prayin’ for change ’cause the pain makes you tender
All of the names you refuse to remember
Were somebody’s brother or friend
Son to a mother that’s crying, see

I can’t breathe
You’re taking my life from me
I can’ breathe
Will anyone fight for me?
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh

Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh-oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
