about

The title, “White Daisy” represents the struggle that queer people face in their life, sometimes on a daily basis. White daisies carry the meaning of cheerfulness but are also seen in sidewalk cracks as they can thrive in the most unexpected places. Many of my friends have been ousted from their families because of their gender identity and/or sexual orientation, and have started their lives over. They are resilient, beautiful humans and are often the heart and backbone of the LGBTQ community. This is a song of hope and progress. I encourage all of you to live meaningfully and promote justice and equality throughout your communities for us all.

lyrics

There's a hole in the wall where a door used to be. Like a record spins melody into memory. I've been there before and I won't go back to bullies who rewrote verse into facts. Where the stars hang low, they glow shoeshine black. There's a crack in the curb where a white daisy grows. Comes beauty from the pain and rain for the hope it sows. They're dressing windows so we can't see in. We leave home and make a family out of friends. How could you rise above a love like this?

Calm now, flooding through the streets. How voices from the deep shake ghosts to their feet. More sound ripping through antique shrouds. Hallowed young heartbeats echo through the city where I sleep.

There's a hole in the wall where a door used to be. Paper dolls holding hands inked in solidarity. Now gossip is the gospel, lies food their pens. White knuckles 'round the throats of those opposing. Well, heaven's big enough to let us all in.

Calm now, flooding through the streets. How voices from the deep shake ghosts to their feet. More sound ripping through antique shrouds. Hallowed young heartbeats echo through the city where I sleep.
