about

Written during Shelter In Place.

A song of hope dedicated to my partner, friends and family in our hope to push through this time of isolation.
It's a vision of empowerment and perseverance to remind us to keep safe and optimistic.
A blue sky look at how this pandemic has brought us more meditative awareness and slow beauty than life normally allows.
Sang in praise of the future to come.

Poured out. Written and recorded in the same day.
All instruments played in isolation by Ruben

lyrics

Hold on to hope
The antidote
Is tied up with rope
Your knot cannot absolve
The trailers to the stars
Will never get you far
Shine a light where you are

Let's walk another empty street
Steal ourselves another silent night of peace and quiet
How the light in your eyes is all that shines

They built a better place
Where pools of rain
Collect all the strange
Now the blues run the game
This vacancy has changed
How the mind is dried
The food for the flies

Let's walk another empty street
Steal ourselves another quiet night of peace and quiet
How the light in your eyes is all that shines

Here on the earth and air
How we fare the bridge from here to there

There's a garden of love
Where push came to shove
Below so above
The winds of change
Will blow us round again
We'll be better than we were
Hear our hidden prayer
The world is here
You're there
There's nothing learned
Nothing burned
The world is strong
It's an open road
Let's walk another empty street
Make a living dream
You're here
Together Here

Hold on
Hold on
Hold
Hold on
Hold on
Hold on
Hold on
Hold on
Hold on
Hold on
Hold on
Hold on
Hold on
Hold on
Hold on
Hold on
