DIFFERENT
(Barbie & Nori Kelley)

I'm different, But that's okay
I'm different, In a million ways
It may be my skin, my hair or my walk
It may be my clothes or the way that I talk
I may be happy, sad or frightened, mad or feeling some pain
It really doesn't matter cause our hearts are the same

Our ancestors were broken, but we're picking up the pieces
Let's do our best to leave a place the future can believe in
Let's break down walls of ignorance, let's tear down walls of hate
Let's plant seeds and grow knowledge, we'll learn from past mistakes

I'm different, But that's okay
I'm different, In a million ways
It may be my skin, my hair or my walk
It may be my clothes or the way that I talk
I may be happy, sad or frightened, mad or feeling some pain
It really doesn't matter cause our hearts are the same

We're different in a million ways and from a million places
We're different in a million ways, just look at all these faces
We're different in a million ways, been scattered from wherever
We're different in a million ways, we're all coming together!

I'm Irish!
I'm Jamaican!
My family is Italian.
My family is from England!
My Grandma's from Japan!
Life, liberty, happiness was what my family pursued
My great grandparents came from Greece after World War Two!

We're different, but that's okay
We're different in a million ways
It may be our skin, our hair or our walk
It may be our clothes or the way that we talk
We may be happy, sad or frightened, mad or feeling some pain
It really doesn't matter cause our hearts are the same

I realize now our class is full of such diversity
I'm just as different as you are - will you please forgive me?
Sure!

We're different, but that's okay
We're different in a million ways
It may be our skin, our hair or our walk
It may be our clothes or the way that we talk
We may be happy, sad or frightened, mad or feeling some pain
It really doesn't matter cause our hearts are the same

We're different in a million ways, yeah
Different in a million ways
We're different in a million ways, yeah
We're different in a million ways
