Lyrics

Tolerance
Written By: Rehya Stevens & Alex Teamer

Elevate
Let’s Elevate
Elevate the consciousness
If you can’t love
Have tolerance

He was fine
With skin as dark as night
Her love was blind
She couldn’t see the crime

In a world of black & white
She was just a girl in love
With a boy
But her father threatened life
He would not let his daughter love
A colored boy

Chorus:
There’s a better way
Let’s elevate the consciousness
If you can’t love
Have tolerance

Two kids at school
Fell into a love so sweet
For all they knew
It was still a secret hard to keep

In a world of wrong & right
They were just two kids in love
Without a choice
But they could not win the fight
Shamed by sisters & brothers
Cuz they were boys

Chorus:
There’s a better way
We’ve got to elevate the consciousness
People if we can’t love
Have tolerance

Bridge:
Let he who is without sin
Be the first to throw the stone
Are you without sin?
Aren’t we all made in the image of him?
Aren’t we?
Aren’t we?

Chorus:
There’s a better way
Let’s elevate the consciousness
People if we can’t love
Have tolerance
Because we’ve got to elevate the consciousness
And if you can’t love
Have tolerance
