Anthem for An Era of Equality... One person asks the world a few simple questions...
"WHY NOT?"
Sherri Laurier
* * *

I can’t love you, and you can’t love me –
It makes no sense & I don’t understand -
What is it that the world can’t see?

Do our dreams not matter? Our hearts not weep?
We’re suffocating more each day -
Isn’t it time for Faith to take that leap?


CHORUS:
Why can’t I still be "happy & gay"?
Why can’t I be who I am in my way?
Why can’t I marry the one that I love,
And not fear retribution from above?

Why can’t we kiss in the light of day?
Why can’t we love who we love today?
Why can’t we stand tall, proud and true,
And not fear violence from society’s view?


Visions of happiness dance in my head –
We float through life together - or -
Are they only glimpses of words I’ve said?

Is everyone "straight" that better than me?
Am I really a 2nd-class citizen -
Shall I live to see justice and equality?


CHORUS:
Why can’t I still be "happy & gay"?
Why can’t I be who I am in my way?
Why can’t I marry the one that I love,
And not fear retribution from above?

Why can’t we kiss in the light of day?
Why can’t we love who we love today?
Why can’t we stand tall, proud and true,
And not fear violence from society’s view?
