There’s a man walking down the street
I can see that he looks different from me
My first thought tells me a story
About violence, about fear
About all the news I’ve watched over the years

But on second thought
I can choose another story
On second thought
I can change the world I see
I have the power to create the person I want to be
So I choose who I am
On my second thought

There’s a woman working at the checkout stand
By the way she speaks, she’s from a different land
My first thought tells me a story
About where she might belong
Then I catch myself and recognize my wrong

So on second thought
I will choose another story
On second thought
I will change the world I see
I have the power to create the person I want to be
So I choose who I am
On my second thought

Every one of us is on our own life’s journey
And our past is something that we can’t deny
But if we listen to each other
We can build a better future
When we work together
We can lift the sky

On second thought
We can choose another story
On second thought we change the world we see
We have the power to create the future we want to be
If we choose who we are
Yes, we choose who we are
When we choose who we are
On our second thought
