about

Before Us is about honouring what came before and what is still here. It's been released as a solo track, a trio track, and now live with my duet. So lovely to see this song grow.

lyrics

I think someone's trying to trick us.
I think they're trying to take the forests.
I think they've forgotten what's still here, what came before us,
and I think its time we sing in chorus:

Stop!
Stop, now.

Oh wouldn't it be neat,
if the sound of our feet,
could take away all this greed?
Oh wouldn't it be neat?

Stop!
Stop, now.

Oh wouldn't it be nice,
if we could all just sit,
peacefully?
Standin' oh so free.

Come on and do it together,
its all we've got.
Come on and do it together,
or we might get caught.

Come on and do it together!!

I think someone's trying to trick us.
I think they're trying to take the forests.
I think they've forgotten what's still here, what came before us,
and I think its time we sing in chorus:

Stop!
Stop, now.
