Pride (In the Name of Love)

John Legend  Buy

One man come in the name of love
One man come and go
One man come he justify
One man to overthrow

In the name of love
What more in the name of love?
In the name of love
What more in the name of love?

One man caught on a barbed wire fence
One man he resist
One man washed on an empty beach
One man betrayed with a kiss

In the name of love
What more in the name of love?
In the name of love
What more in the name of love?

Late afternoon, April four
Shot rings out in the Memphis sky
Free at last, they took your life
They could not take your pride
In the name of love
What more in the name of love?
In the name of love
What more in the name of love?

In the name of love
What more in the name of love?
In the name of love
What more in the name of love?

Dr. King once said that the arc of amoral universe is long
But it bends towards justice, it bends towards justice
But here's the thing, it does not bend on its own
It bends because each of us, in our own ways put our hands on that arc
And we bend it in the direction of justice
Because we organize and we mobilize, we march, we vote
