Over the past few months, I’ve been struggling to find positivity in the world. Humanity is going through so much right now. Too many innocent lives are being lost to war. We’re forced to live with more and more acts of violence. In my own country, people are struggling to buy food, find work, and pay bills.


It’s rare to see a smile from strangers now, and I don’t blame them. There’s fewer things to smile about. It feels like we’re past the golden days of humanity, and things are just spiraling into more and more chaos every day. 



A part of me wishes that we could all sail away to a different world, where we’ve learned to live in peace and harmony with each other. It’s a silly dream, but this song was inspired by that hope. Let me know if you guys can relate.


Thank you guys so much for listening to my music. Sending you guys big hugs. Please hang in there.

Lyrics:


There’s a pond a mile away from town

Where swans and frogs would grow

We laughed and cheered near waters clear

A place that we called home


Now the water’s stale from years of drought

This town is just the same

A thousand hearts once filled with love

Are now just filled with hate


I used to see open skies

Now dust storms cloud my eyes

I lived in paradise

That was another time


Trip to the marketplace

Sea of unhappy faces

We’re drowning in pain

I’ve got to get away


I wish I could cry and turn this pond into a river

So it could carry me away to somewhere so much better

Where people actually smile not stare with eyes as cold as winter

And work to lend a helping hand instead of pointing fingers


I wish I could cry and turn this pond into a river

So it could carry me away to somewhere so much better

Where people found a way to live in harmony together

Hand in hand and open hearts there’s nothing they can’t weather

 

There’s a pond a mile away from town

Where kids would jump and play

Underneath cerulean dreams

We’re all one and the same


But the rain’s been gone too long

And kindness never grows

In empty ponds and empty fields 

Where seeds of rage are sewn


Lips spreading filthy lies

Streets filled with crooked smiles

No friends just foes in sight

Everyone’s lost their mind


Hatred and violence

Words turned to bloody fists

Patience is wearing thin

I’m so damn tired of this


I wish I could cry and turn this pond into a river

So it could carry me away to somewhere so much better

Where people actually smile not stare with eyes as cold as winter

And work to lend a helping hand instead of pointing fingers


I wish I could cry and turn this pond into a river

So it could carry me away to somewhere so much better

Where people found a way to live in harmony together

Hand in hand and open hearts there’s nothing they can’t weather


I used to see open skies

Now dust storms cloud my eyes

I lived in paradise

That was another time


I used to see open skies

Now dust storms cloud my eyes

I lived in paradise

That was another time
