We Are the Change
Author: BobR    Date: 02/01/2008 13:08:21

Everybody deals with bad situations in different ways. Some people lash out, some people withdraw. When I heard about Edwards suspending his campaign on Wed., I didn't know what to do with my feelings. I suggested to my love that she channel her feelings into her art. I decided to take my own advice, and channel it into music.

Understand that I studiously avoid trying to write political music. There are very few that can do that and make it work. There are SO many bad political songs out there...

But - I fell asleep Wednesday night with the beginnings of a song in my head, and woke up yesterday with it nearly finished. I haven't had a chance to really work out the music parts or record it, but I am sharing the lyrics (subject to change) with the blog today...

We Are The Change
Change....
Change is in the air
We can feel it in our bones
We can feel the need to care.

Now...
Now is the time
The journey of a thousand miles
Begins with a step - step by step we start to climb...

We - we are the ones
We can be the change we want to see in the lives of everyone
We - we are the ones
We can be the change we want to see, but we've only just
We've only just begun

Hope...
There's hope in our hearts
They can silence those who speak for us
But our voices won't be silenced - not when our singing starts

We - we are the ones
we can be the change we want to see in the lives of everyone
We - we are the ones
we can be the change we want to see, but we've only just
We've only just begun

As we chip away the mountain
and turn it into sand
As we face the mighty ocean on the shore
Our single voices join together
As we're standing hand in hand
Listen to that mighty roar
"We're not going to take it any more!"

Love...
Love is the way
Shine enlightenment into the night
To bring the light of day
We'll never go away

We - we are the ones
we can be the change we want to see in the lives of everyone
Yes we - we are the ones
we can be the change we want to see, but we've only just
We've only just begun

We are the change
We are the change
We are the change
