A song written in lockdown....

A hymn for our human spirit

lyrics

When the Dark Begins - April 2020

Overhead the thunder of blades
Drowns out the ghost of a scream
We were a people that could lead
I used to believe

Everywhere are cities that can’t breathe
They’re full of love but on their knees
Our song is a faint echo that you heard
In the ribcage - like a bird

You’re the feather to lift the veil
And you are where i should be
When the dark begins

They had to shut us all down
Now we’re hiding out in our towers
Hail the tellers in the hollywood hills
It all seems less real now

You’re the feather to lift the veil
And you are where i should be
When the dark begins

We confide in the glow of our screens
To recall a time
We gave to that dissonant light
A foreshadowing smile

You’re the feather to lift the veil
And you are where i should be
When the dark begins
