lyrics

There’s an old black man on the corner
singing for a dollar or a dime
You might think he’s crazy
You might think he’s lazy
You say he oughta get up off the street

Well maybe he just wants to be happy
maybe he just want to be free to sing
And maybe singing on this corner
is exactly where he's meant to be

There’s a boy who likes to dress in women’s clothing
And he likes pretty boys to keep him company
You might think it’s unnatural
You say he’s going straight to Hell
You say he oughta be what God intended

Well maybe he just wants to be happy
maybe he just wants to be free to love
And maybe what God intended
is exactly what you see

There’s someone who’s tired of the office day-to-day
She throws it all away to find tranquility
You might think she’s given up
You say she oughta suck it up
She oughta do what everyone else does (work 9 to 5)

Well maybe she just wants to be happy
maybe she just wants to be free to dream
And maybe this office cubicle
wasn’t where she was meant to be

I'm on my way...

Maybe we just wanna be happy
Maybe we just wanna be free to live
Maybe we just wanna be.

about

Haze & Dacey Richmond, Virginia

Based in Richmond, Virginia, Haze & Dacey revel in lilting melodies, tight harmonies, and compelling rhythms that make toes tap and bodies sway. Original songs are interspersed amongst covers both familiar and obscure. The duo skips nimbly from folk-pop to alt-country to roots-rock, creating a homegrown organic sound with upright bass, acoustic guitar, piano, shaker, tambourine, and mouth-horn. ... more
