So, the last time I posted this song in my trademark, home-cooked fashion, Mr David Cuny (username: dcuny on this forum) so kindly reached out and offered to remix it for me. It's taken me ages to post it on here because I've been beyond overwhelmed with non-musical stuff to do, sadly ... but here we are - this is his mix of my song, which I absolutely love. Hope you love it as I do!!!

P.S. I'll add, with his kind permission, the details of how he mixed it - below!

Again, hope you enjoy!

We Are People, Too (the David Cuny remix)

P.P.S. David suggested I should add the link to the original recording here, too, so that you may be able to compare and give feedback on the differences, too, if you so wish and have time to? Thank you all so much for listening!

LYRICS:

We are people, too,
You know ...
Black or white or brown
Or so ...

Of whatever shade
Or hue
We are people, too ...
It's true.

We are kindred souls
You know ...
Let us close on wars
The door ...

Let us hate agree
To cease
Let us try again
For peace.

It's hard to live when people hate
And all they do is retaliate
With mindless anger at all we do ...
You know, my friend, we're people, too ...

You can't desire a world the same!
Why would you want that - it'd be lame!
We're all the same, yet different,
We all have unique talent

Me, I write and sing my song
If you agree, please clap along:
United we must be in diversity
United we must be if we wanna live.

We are people, too,
You know ...
Black or white or brown
Or so ...

Of whatever shade
Or hue
We are people, too ...
It's true.

This world is craving unity,
The people shaking hands for all to see,
Refusing to fight no more
Letting, instead, our spirits soar ...

Love Mother Earth, foremost and first,
Love Father Sun, who gives us warmth,
Love all creation as thyself
No more, no less ... and you shall delve

Into the mystery of happiness
And joy of life you shall possess,
Love everyone, and what is more
Love yourself, friend, forever so!

[BRIDGE]

Remember: but for God's own grace
It isn't YOU, that broken face
That you would want so much to hate ...
Oh, trust me, it's not too late

To put down swords and dance instead
To songs of joy that emanate
From all our hearts, whether we're white,
Or black, or brown ... we'll be alright.

So come on, friend, and sing with glee
This song I write for you and me
Let's stop the fights and love instead
All who we are ... and life won't be so bad.
