Somewhere to Begin

© T. R. Ritchie, Whitebark Music/BMI

People say to me, “Oh, you gotta be crazy!
How can you sing in times like these?
Don’t you read the news? Don’t you know the score? How can you sing when so many others grieve?” People say to me, “What kind of fool believes
That a song will make a difference in the end?”

By way of a reply, I say a fool such as I
Who sees a song as somewhere to begin
A song is somewhere to begin
The search for something worth believing in If changes are to come
there are things

that must be done
And a song is somewhere to begin

Additional verses:

2) Dream... 3) Love...
