Sometimes I lose hope in humanity and the destruction we are wreaking upon our beautiful earth and its inhabitants — all for what? For a few little pleasures? Can we give up a few of those little things for the forests, animals, oceans and each other? Why does it seem so hard to change? I feel trapped in our system that I know is destroying us all. It hurts.

My way of coping is music. This song comes from the very deepest, grieving part of me that hopes to be better, change and heal. I want to evolve!

Thank you for listening and for giving me a safe place to share my Soul.

Peace.

Earth is Burning

Been frozen by fear
Feel the end drawing near
There’s a torrent of tears
Filling my eyes

‘Cause I’m caught in the wake
Of our collective mistakes
There’s a daily heartbreak
That opens me wide

There’s a question up above
From the Source some call Love
Can you hear this voice resounding
Deep inside

It says what did you do
When the earth was burning?
What did you do
When earth was burning
Earth was burning
What did you do

Did you give up hate
Open your fist now for a handshake
Wear your suffering with grace
Before you die

And exchange some convenience, it’s such a simple thing
For the forests’ good green abundance
And all the world’s ocean brilliance
It’s not so hard to try

What will you do
When the earth is burning
What will you do
When earth is burning
Make a sacrifice
For another life
Won’t you tell me
What will you do
What will you do
What will you do
What will you do

Take one step today
Before it’s too late
Take one step today
No, we just can’t wait
‘Cause one step and one step
Lead to another
Together
And that’s all it takes

What will you do
‘Cause the earth is burning
What will you do
The earth is burning
Make a sacrifice
For another life
Won’t you tell me
Tell me

What will you do
‘Cause the earth is burning
What will you do
The earth is burning
A small sacrifice
Saves another life
Earth is burning
What will you do
What will you do

Take one step, start with one step
Just one take step, start with one step

Let’s take one step together
One step together
One step together
All together now

Step together
One step together
Step together
All together now
