Track Name: Langston Hughes
I am white, Irish-Catholic, 27, 5'11", 157
schoolteacher, songwriter, singer and guitar player
I'm a husband, father, brother and son
and I am one of everyone
and you are a part of me as I am a part of you
and we are a part of Langston Hughes.

I listen to Bob Dylan sing "To Ramona"
and Billy Bragg to "Shirley"
and REM to "AnnElise"
I love their music
People who listen to my songs hear part of them in me
and what I've come to do is becoming part of you
and we are a part of Langston Hughes

Everything we do we are a witness to
I see the way you live and I take it inside
Every move is a rock that shatters a stagnant pool
And it travels from me to you and beyond to Langston Hughes

I've seen the look on another man's face
who came from somewhere faraway
He spoke with such humility
that it keeps a certain peace in me
Yes, I've seen another kind
and I cannot chase it from my mind
But I act in any way I choose
knowing I am part of you
and we are a part of Langston Hughes

Sometimes I feel so free
The littlest things amaze me
and sometimes I get lost in confusion
and I go searching aimlessly
But I have my family and my friends
to help me find the key
And I have records to play
and poems to read
and bits of inspiration can be seen
on every evening's news
and there's always the "Theme for English B"
written on a page by Langston Hughes

Everything we do we are a witness to
I see the way you live and I take it inside
Every move is a rock that shatters a stagnant pool
And it travels from me to you and beyond to Langston Hughes
