about

As some of you know, it’s been a difficult year. I watched my father and my brother take their last breaths… a few months apart from each other.

My brother really got me (not many people do)… he understood me… he approved of me… we were so much alike, it was easy. He was a gift.

Loosing him, so unexpectedly after my father, really knocked the wind out of me. I wasn’t even sure I wanted to continue making music anymore. I didn’t feel like creating was enough… I didn’t feel like my contributions mattered.

Thankfully now, I realize (on most days) that I am enough and my music matters.

I am 50 today… and this feels like the best gift — you are enough and what you do matters.

lyrics

When it's cold and the shadows seem to close in
And that war some wage within, seems like we'll never win
Look at the bright side
Look past the dark side
Look to the light that always shines on the inside
We are the ones on the road up to Zion
A fearless lion, a song we can rely on
Stars of Orion, don't stop just ride on
Bearing our gifts to this world, all my chosen ones

CHORUS
(People) Keep holding on
(People) Keep pressing on
(People) Keep marching on

Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted
Blessed are those who dream, for with dreams we are entrusted
Oh Tribe of Judah
Oh tribe of Levi
Words are far-reaching, let kindness be your teaching
The crows swoop low, but let hate go by the wayside
Reap what you sow, know that we'll grow, breathe, let love's spirit guide
Free the chains now, healing rains
Now the river Jordan is washing it all away

CHANT
Hold on
Hold on
Everybody hold on

Hold on
Be strong
Everybody keep on

Keep on
Press on
Everybody move on

Move on
Be strong
Everybody hold on
