One Man Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

It's a peaceful thing to know that freedom as a rule belongs to me
There's something very wrong when the color of a man is all you see
After all this time how can a single voice explain
Any reason for the pain we all have seen, it's not a dream

One man stood tall and faced the devil with his back to the wall
And took one step closer to heaven above

So he took a stand and walked where no one else would dare to even try
It was the only way if not for bravery the soul would surely die
Right before my eyes, he gave his life unselfishly
So that all the father's children could be free just like you and me

One man stood tall and faced the devil with his back to the wall
And took one step closer to heaven above

Before his work is done we've got to put an end
To this game of choosing sides
I want us to be one and I won't let it go
Till it's over, I'm here waiting

One man stood tall and faced the devil with his back to the wall
And took one step closer to heaven above
One man walked up and faced the devil and with his back to the wall
One step closer to heaven above

One man stood tall and with his back to the wall
I'm waiting, waiting
