A song for Florence

A quick demo version, sung live of a song about the Covid-19 lockdown, how we’re coping, and where we go from here…

Initial nudge was from Rachel, a fellow Tyrannochorus soloist and she contributed some of the lyrics as a little music exercise in which we indulged to pass the time

A song for Florence

Have we had enough?
Can you see what we’ve become?
Were we completely numb
To the breakdown of everything we loved inside?

Are we brave enough?
To stay together while we’re apart…
Can we summon the heart?
Drawing on our strengths from deep inside

In lockdown, we stay at home but not silent
Thinking about the time when we will rise…again

Give us the air that we might breathe
The scent of rainfall on the trees
Don’t you know that we really oughta agree

Bring us the life that we might see
The sunrise on a brand new dawn
Show us how to be free again

Are we brave enough?
To stick together when we’re apart…
Can’t we muster the heart?
To pour our love out to the other side

But, the good we do now
And the paths down which we start
Can we get to the heart?
Of what he really means to be alive
