Song Description

The song started out as a favour to my friend 5. He asked me to write a song about George Harrison - but I had always thought there were bigger powers in play after connecting with him. I felt at times like Alice falling down the rabbit hole - it was all so surreal. After writing the song for him I realized that it could be about any number of people that have brought important messages of hope or change to mankind - Jesus, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandella, Mother Teresa - the list goes on and on.

Story Behind the Song

Dedicated to 5 who asked me as a personal favour to him to write a song about George Harrison. Thanks for all the help and crazy inspiring conversation my friend! I'll always remember you "when you were here".

Lyrics

When You Were Here

A long long time ago
You took us by the hand
And lead us to a world
That we could understand
When you were here
A long long time ago

It seems like yesterday
When you were everywhere
You said that love would bring
A peace the world could share
When you were here
A long long time ago

And you were just a man that sang a song
Til everybody sang along
Sang along

Your light helped us to see
A smile that seemed to say
We could all be free
And you showed us the way
When you were here
A long long time ago

And you were just a man that sang a song
Til everybody sang along
Sang along

And now the world has changed
Yes every man must fall
But your message still remains
You left it for us all
When you were here
A long long time ago
