I wrote this song a couple years ago for people like me who feel scared about the state of our country, our home. It's even more true now that "only love will take care of this". Love for each other and for ourselves. We have to practice self care which is hard for a lot of us. But this is where it starts....we have to stay home when we can, wash our hands, put "our own mask on first", be kind to ourselves, love ourselves so we can in turn love and be of service to others. This is not easy at times, I know, but it is doable. We can do this. Together.

FIGHTING WITH OUR HEARTS

 

I show up at 9:15

for my appointment

it's just routine

Did you know

it's been a year

since you filled out 

our simple questionnaire 

Are you eating much?

How's your sleep?

Do you apply for jobs

You'll never keep?

So many people are feelin' scared

feelin' down about this state of affairs

WE'RE TRYING REALLY HARD

FIGHTING 'CAUSE WE CARE

WHAT'S HAPPENING TO OUR HOME

TRYING TO BE KIND

FIGHTING WITH OUR HEARTS

FOR WHAT'S HAPPENING TO OUR HOME

Are you stricken with

hopelessness?

And you can't pinpoint

what's causing it?

So many things we can

blame it on

Look around

There's so much wrong

This is when those of us who see

Must stand together for liberty

WE'RE TRYING REALLY HARD

FIGHTING 'CAUSE WE CARE

WHAT'S HAPPENING TO OUR HOME

TRYING TO BE KIND

FIGHTING WITH OUR HEARTS

FOR WHAT'S HAPPENING TO OUR HOME

I've been lazy, I've been complacent

I take for granted what we have

It's time to stand up

let's clean this mess up

We can't let the dark side win

WE'RE TRYING REALLY HARD

FIGHTING 'CAUSE WE CARE

WHAT'S HAPPENING TO OUR HOME

TRYING TO BE KIND

FIGHTING WITH OUR HEARTS

FOR WHAT'S HAPPENING TO OUR HOME

Are you stricken with 

hopelessness?

Only love can take 

care of this
