about

The secondary historical figure is a man on the same bus as Rosa Parks.

lyrics

I was on the bus home
When you stepped into my life
I'd never known
Such fire in a woman's eyes

You're a queen of heart
From a kingdom far
Above this cruel charade
There's a place where love will reign
Where the laws are paper thin
And you would not be named
By the color of your skin

I saw out the window
As the driver pulled away
He stole your pride
And left you in the rain

I'm an honest man
On my word I stand
But I froze and could not speak
And the blame weighs down on me
For the color of my skin
Should have stood up from my seat
And be the one who let you in

So I rode the bus home
As a quiet man would do
My face will fade
But they'll all remember you

The queen of heart
From a kingdom far
Above this cruel charade
In a place where love will reign
Where the laws are paper thin
And you will not be named
By the color of your skin
