From the recording Precious Demos

Lyrics

Verse
Just another dead queer to you
Not another could come too soon
You don't like what's in your heart
Could you love your son were he gay?
Could you love your son what he say?
Could you make today a brand new start?

Chorus
Say what's precious
What's precious
Say what's precious
To me and you
Say what's precious
What's precious
Say what's precious
To me and you

Verse
Just another black lesbian
There's always one to spoil the fun
Could they just shut up from their graves?
Could you imagine that she prayed
The day those men took her away
Once the boys she played with in the park
When times were not so dark

Chorus
Say what's precious
What's precious
Say what's precious
To me and you
Say what's precious
What's precious
Say what's precious
To me and you

Bridge
What's it gonna be now
When it's easy to see?
What's it gonna be now
When it's easy to breathe?

Reach out and touch somebody
Tell me what you feel
No stretch of imagination
Of a world where we can breathe!

Bridge (choir)
What's it gonna be now
When it's easy to see?
What's it gonna be now
When it's easy to breathe?

Reach out and touch somebody
Tell me what you feel
No stretch of imagination
Of a world where we can breathe!

Verse
They're staring in a mirror tonight
But what they see just doesn't feel right
An image of society
Before a child has even been born
We've made decisions for them like thorns
The thorns to hold them down on the ground

Chorus
Say what's precious
What's precious
Say what's precious
To me and you
Say what's precious
What's precious
Say what's precious
To me and you
