Sing Louder

Song Description

Up-tempo, catchy folk song (drums in at final chorus). Words of wisdom passed down (literally) from the 103 year old piano player upstairs to her young neighbor below: "Sing every day, sing out loud and clear. If you don't know the words...sing louder!" This title track features a community choir of 48 souls who joined me in the studio to make this song what it is: a celebration of raising our voices together.  Some had never been in a studio, some had never sung out loud in public, many stepped out of their comfort zones as they all donned headphones, stepped up to microphones and raised their voices together. There are no words to describe the energy in the room that day, but you can feel it for yourself on this song!

Lyrics

I feel feet tapping through the floor
I hear hammers on strings
Rising under the door
She is whiling the hours away
She plays her music
Most every day
She's seen life that I've never known
Over 100 years old
And she is still on the go
When I ask how she's lived all those years
She laughs till she cries
Then she speaks through her tears
She says...

Live what you love
Love what you do
Laugh with your friends
Cry with them too
Sing every day
Sing out loud sing out clear
If you don't know the words
Sing louder
Sing stronger
Sing louder, sing stronger
For all the world to hear

She's walking out when I'm walking in
On her arm is a cane
On her face is a grin
When I ask how she's feeling today
Her smile tells it all
But here's what she says:

Live what you love
Love what you do
Laugh with your friends
Cry with them too
Sing every day
Sing out loud sing out clear
If you don't know the words
Sing louder
Sing stronger
Sing louder, sing stronger
For all the world to hear

When she left us
The silence was deafening
So I climbed up the stairs
To her room
I sat at her keys
With my hands on my knees
Till a song filled my heart
It was loud it was clear
I wasn't quite sure
Of all of the words
So I sang louder
I sang stronger
I sang louder and stronger
For all the world to hear
I sang...

Live what you love
Love what you do
Laugh with your friends
Cry with them too
Sing every day
Sing out loud sing out clear
If you don't know the words
Sing louder
Sing stronger
Sing louder, sing stronger
For all the world to hear

Sing louder
Sing stronger
Sing louder, sing stronger
For all the world to hear
