about

A track from my first disc. Inspired by people's capacity for misunderstanding and my lack of tolerance and patience.

lyrics

Outside on the streets, People walking in line
Briefcase, shopping bag, sour expression. No time
for the business of enjoying this wonderful life
And I know
So many of us spend our days half asleep
compiling list of our things and the people we meet
We walk through our lives with our eyes on our feet
But we can open our eyes
Put a spring in our mind
If we just take the time to remember
How lucky we are to be so alive
Because this life is sweet and
It belongs entirely to you and me
And we have to believe
we're sisters and brothers
And I'm sure we can be so free
So let's relax for a while
And pass round a smile
Take a moment to warm ourselves
in the light of each other.

In the course of a day you can make a heart freeze
But in a second you can start a reaction stampede
With a well placed word we can set a mind free
We all know
of somebody who let's their hate impede
their own progress toward being whole and complete
intelligent thought has to beat a retreat
-sometimes
But we can open their eyes
Put a spring in their mind
If we just take the time to remember
It's the only way we'll become human KIND
Because this life is sweet and
It belongs entirely to you and me
And we have to believe
we're sisters and brothers
And I'm sure we can be so free
So let's relax for a while
And pass round a smile
Take a moment to warm ourselves
in the light of each other.

I can picture a place, maybe just a small street
Where everyone loves all the people they meet
It might make me a hippy...
But the alternative's scarier to me
Because this life is sweet and
It belongs entirely to you and me
And we have to believe
we're sisters and brothers
And I'm sure we can be so free
So let's relax for a while
And pass round a smile
Take a moment to warm ourselves in the light of each other,

Take a moment to warm ourselves in the light of each other,

Take a moment to warm ourselves in the light of each other...

Alistair J. Pearson Doncaster, UK

Following a bilateral lung transplant in 2010, I started making loads of noise. The only way you will be able to find out what I do is to listen to my songs. You might even like it. My mum does.
