Sometimes I do FAWM songs that are actually from other projects. Presented to you without context, this is a song from a musical that @jeffwhitmire47 and I are working on
Lyrics: Jeff Whitmire
Music: Jeff Whitmire & Gail Gallagher
Hush my child, let me rock you in my arms,
As I did when you were small.
I know you’re scared as your were back then,
Frightened of the monsters that you saw.
And I know it feels like that walls are closing in
But when it all crashes down, you can rebuild it again.
Just pull down those pillars, of close minded thinking, that they have used to divide.
Then climb to the top of ruins and be our guide.
You have a power, you can turn every tide,
Just use every trick up your sleeve.
Face all your fears and hold fast through the storm,
And stand up for what you believe.
Our people have all become misguided,
They’re wandering bereft and they’ve lost control,
But in every in every hour of darkness there’s always a light,
That can shine from the meekest soul.
There’s so many lost out there stricken blind to the blight,
But you hold the truth deep inside to show them the light.
I’ve been here beside you since you were a child and from birth I’ve wrapped you in my song.
I know in my heart you’re the one who can right this wrong.
We have gone astray, we have all gone off course,
Battered and tossed through the gale.
They’re cold and alone in a dark endless sea,
But my son you can still be their sail.
I know it seems hopeless, the panic is maddening,
The fervor grows stronger each passing day.
Throughout history there have always been times,
When one person can rise up and lead the way
A wolf in sheep’s clothing, can scatter the flock,
But it takes a shepherd to guide the herd
And though you feel meek, you can still make a difference,
Remember creation began, with one word.
Oh, we are divided, and we are conflicted,
Two sides that can still be one.
Now is your moment, be that voice of reason,
GIve them their freedom,
You can be their hero,
You can be their light.
