Why not say it like it is, like you know you should
Before they break your little heart, oh break it good
The feelings all the way inside, they never let you down
So why not say it like it is even if it don't make your mama proud

Why change your mind when you make it up?
Second chances don't come easy, easy for some
Baby I don't know the lock from the key
But I know one of them is you and the other one's me

So if it's happiness you want that's what you'll get
You gotta rise up little sister turn on the light
Wise up to the stories you've been told
'Cause love don't come in black or white
Oh, no, no, no

My mama tells me I won't get through the pearly gates
'Cause I ain't sorry for my sins and all my mistakes
Well mama, I don't know if I'm going up or down
But I know heaven's gonna be a one lonely town

But if it's happiness you want that's what you'll get
You gotta rise up little sister turn on the light
Wise up to the stories you've been told
'Cause love don't come in black or white
Oh, no, no, no

Oh yeah, rise up little sister turn on the light
Wise up to the stories you've been told
Rise up little sister turn on the light
Wise up to the stories you've been told
'Cause love don't come in black or white

Rise up little sister turn on the light
Wise up to the stories

Rise up open your eyes
Love it don't come in black or white
Oh no, wise up to the stories you've been told
You know love it don't come in black or white
Little sister you got to rise up
