It's hard to find a friendship outside of your race
It's hard to feel accepted when you're so out of place

It's hard to find a smile in the mist of your tears
It's hard to feel accepted after so many years

It's hard to find an end to a lifetime of pain
It's hard to feel accepted when you're not the same

It's hard to find words that express your emotions
It's hard to feel heard over all the commotion

It's hard to find someone who will listen to your fears
It's hard to feel accepted when you're laughed at by peers

It's hard to find a moment when you're sincerely happy
It's hard to feel accepted when you're hair is just too nappy

It's hard to find someone who knows what I mean
When I say being accepted is not what I dreamed

It's twenty-eleven and a lot has changed
But at the end of the day, I'm exactly the same
