​Honest World

This song is by Catie Curtis and appears on the compilation Acoustic Valentine (2003).

When I was 19
I broke up with my first girlfriend
Because of a guy down the hall
Who was a Christian
He said, "I look at you
I can see you don't wanna lie
And if you stay with her
Your whole life you're gonna have to hide"
And I believed him
So I let her go
And I cried my eyes out
In my room alone
And he would come by with the Bible
Until I shut the door
And decided I wasn't going to lie to myself any more

Some day
We'll all be free
I can feel it
It's our destiny
Some day I believe
Love will make
An honest world for me

It took a long time
To find you
I knew right away
I was gonna want to spend my life with you
We took our wedding vows
We had our wedding night
We had everything
Except the legal right
And so we jumped the broom
Like plantation slaves would do
'Cause they couldn't marry
Under the master's rules

Some day
We'll all be free
I can feel it
It's our destiny
Some day
They'll see the truth
And I will make
An honest woman of you
Hey...

There's a baby being born
Somewhere in the world
Who's gonna need us
As much as we're gonna need her
And we will board the plane
And we're gonna bring her home
And that's how we'll make
A little family of our own
But the documents
Will leave off one of our names
Like one of us cut
Right from the picture frame

Some day
We'll all be free
I can feel it
It's our destiny
Some day I trust
Love will make
An honest world for us

And today
I believe
Love has made
An honest woman of me
