lyrics:  

All your faults are forgiven
All your fears are cast aside
All your friends for this life and maybe others
Are gathered here tonight

Whether the light that you follow
Shines from a five, six, or eight pointed star
Whether the night is too dark to see
Your family knows who you are

Oooooo (x2)

If you speak French or Yoruba
If your skin is dark or light
Even if you come from a different side of town
We're all kissing cousins tonight

(chorus:)
Look to your left and look to your right
We're all kissing cousins tonight
Kissing cousins tonight
Ooooooo
Kissing cousins tonight
Ooooooo

We've seen cycles and cycles of sorrow
The wail and the moan of dreams undone
Let's hope that we don't pass the pain that we've known
Onto the next generation

So you shake and you churn
And you build and you burn
Savor the lift, savor the turn
Dance with the folks who let in the light
We're all kissing cousins tonight
Unwind the string and let out the kite
We're all kissing cousins tonight

(chorus)
