Song Description

The song talks about pain and fear in the world but also about the hope. It's about how truth, faith and love keep us connected and how the people in the world taking risks, taking the front of the lines, and making a difference can inspire us.

Story Behind the Song

We were inspired to write a song about believing that despite all the differences and turmoil we see in the world we're really all in this together.

Lyrics

Here and Now

VS
Looking out at the world we all live in
There is pain, fear and yet
There are lives still filled with hope
It's known in these hearts there remains a doubt
It's seen in these hearts the desire to find out
The truth, harsh as it may seem, keeps us together

CHORUS
Here and now is the time
When the stars will shine
When spirited-hearts take the front of the line
The risks that they take remind us to see
The way it has to be
The world may be changing
And peace ever straining
To find its way into our lives
With hands reached out and spirits strong
It won't take that long

VS
The time has come to stand tall
Become the inspiration that breathes deep inside us all
Then we know the world as one can grow even stronger
Those spirited-hearts will doubt no longer
Our faith, different as it seems, keeps us together

CHORUS
Here and now is the time
When the stars will shine
When spirited-hearts take the front of the line
With the risks that they take they remind us to see
The way it has to be
The world may be changing
And peace ever straining
To find its way into our lives
With hands reached out and spirits strong
It won't be that long

BRIDGE
If we just make the choice
To understand
How those around us
As fellow man
Can bring together a world apart
What will it take to start?

VS
Now we know it's time to change
Our past is gone forever and a brighter future remains
Even though it feels as if we're on our own
There is no one that will stand alone
Because love, living in our hearts, keeps us together

OUTRO
Looking out at the world we all live in.

Here and now.
