Lyrics

Precious
Words and music by Jonathan Dockney

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 parks
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 while it’s easy to breathe?
What’s it gonna be now while it’s easy to see?
Reach out and touch somebody
Tell me what you feel
Contours of imagination
A would where we can breath

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 we use to hold them down onto 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
