MAYBE

one day

Maybe

one day

 

Why the song was written

A while back, my son Justin was watching TV when a commercial about world poverty came on. He watched it attentively right up until the end, and was shocked when the images of children appeared.

When it finished, he looked at my wife and I and simply asked “Can I help?” – hence the chorus. He was only 8 years old at time. I then decided to write a song – with all political nuances aside – and thought it would be fitting to have him appear in the video himself. Although he was very sick the day we filmed the video, he was very proud to do it!

This song is close to my heart and very important to Justin and he loves the fact that it’s going to help other children.

MAYBE

Another day goes by, and yet another book’s been read
Visions passing by with answers left unsaid
Why the pain and all this craving?
What can we gain from all this emulation – we can’t let go
 
Can I help at all?
Before the last ones fall
Will there be someday when it all just goes away?
Maybe, one day…maybe…
 
All these questions raised with nothing left to show
We look right through the haze and ignore what hides below
So much hurt, there’s so much fear
We’re in this storm as one, we should be hearing – but no one cares
 
Can I help at all?
Before the final call
Will there be someday when it all just goes away?
Maybe, one day…
 
Far away, a child is crying
To find a way to end this senseless dying – we shouldn’t close our eyes
 
Can I help at all?
Before the last ones fall
Could there be some way to amend what now surrounds me?
Can I help to end
This complete suffering
Could i change this isolation all around me?
Maybe, one day…maybe…
