Liner Notes: 

Skirmish prompt: Hope

Lyrics: 

V1
bombs were dropping
soldiers were being shot
wars were raging
lives were lost and forgot

people circled round
to pray and to sing
some say that they
didn’t do anything ...

PC
but we know that’s not true...
because of what music does for you

C
music sets minds free
music shapes our souls
music brings hearts love
music gives us hope
and hope is what we need
need again....
music is hope’s best friend...

V2
they were dying
children in cages
victims of neglect
politicians on stages

people circled round
to pray and to sing
some say that they
didn’t do anything ...

PC
but we know that’s not true...
because of what music does for you

C
music sets minds free
music shapes our souls
music brings hearts love
music gives us hope
and hope is what we need
need again....
music is hope’s best friend...

B
we can hope that music
will lead to peace
we can hope that music
will bring justice
we can hope that music
will change the world
we can hope that music
will guide.. us

PC
and we know that is true...
because of what music does for you

C
music sets minds free
music shapes our souls
music brings hearts love
music gives us hope
and hope is what we need
need again....
music is hope’s best friend...

Music really can be an extraordinary healer. It affects us on so many levels. Of course it only makes sense, because energy is really just vibration and music music is audible vibration.

Nice work, Elizabeth! The bridge is especially compelling.

I love the line "Music is hope's best friend." Very cool and positive. Good work.

Ah, the musical swell into the chorus. This anthem to the strength of music takes me back in my headspace to some great and powerful songs you're invoking.

I really like how this started off like it was another time and then boom, it is current events. Well done and I hope this gets music!
