Liner Notes: 

Wonderful lyrics written by Liz. Thank you Liz. I absolutely love working with your well crafted lyrics. I wrote this second one for the Tracy Chapman sound-a-like on songtradr but, again, not sure if I hit the mark...

I love the sentiment of these lyrics, especially with what is going on in the States right now...

LIZ Says: superb delivery Joanne! So grateful for the beauty urgency and poignancy your music and vocals bring to this song.

Lyrics: 

VERSE
It has to be, them and us, you and me, neighbors friends ,families
lovers strangers, communities, close to home, overseas
diverse worldwide, humanity....

BRIDGE
there might be lines we may never walk
There might be borders we may never cross
but there must be yes there must be

CHORUS
love across the lines love beyond borders
love... we must show love

hope across the lines hope beyond borders
hope.... we must give hope

joy across the lines joy beyond borders
joy... we must share joy

peace across the lines peace beyond borders
peace... we must make peace

BRIDGE
there might be lines we may never walk
There might be borders we may never cross
but there must be yes there must be

VERSE
humanity diverse worldwide overseas close to home
communities lovers strangers families neighbors friends
you and me them and us It has to be



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Very nice, a topical and important message. A lot of tricky words in that first verse to manouevre around, Well done.

This is a perfect example of why Joanne likes to peruse the writings that Liz has to offer. You're guaranteed to come across gems like this one, and when you're as talented as Joanne... well, you just have to grab those lyrics and turn them into beautiful songs. This is just lovely, and let's spread the message.

Powerful stuff. It has a certain air of Mary Chapin Carpenter to it, both musically and lyrically, and a great unifying chorus that I can imagine singing along to at a rally.

Wow, just wow. Loved listening to this. Vocals and guitar are brilliant. They deliver the great lyrics.
