about

This song has the following story: I wrote a piano piece and uploaded it:
nadiacripps.bandcamp.com/track/take-one-day-at-a-time
The same day I uploaded my music I saw Kristi's lyric "Step Out of The Blue" which I liked very much so I posted my comment.
This was on FAWM: February Album Writing Month. I just felt that Kristi's lyric and my music are really connecting. Here is our song. We are both very grateful to Karen who sang the song beautifully and added instrumental layers making the song sound like a song from the musical, my favourite genre! Thank you so much Kristi and Karen for your amazing collaboration with me!

Your shoulders sink
And you walk too slow
But you don’t care
You have nowhere to go

You’ve given up
Sayin’ what’s the use
The world is troubled
And there’s never good news

[ch]
But if you wanna dance
Here’s somethin’ you can do
Shake your burdens down
And step out of the blue
Feel the heavy weight
Slowly disappear
A lighter, brighter day
Will help to make it clear

Today is calling
And we all must go
The choice is ours
To join in on the show

I’m glad we’re friends
Cuz we share our fears
Sit down and talk
And try to persevere

[ch]
And if we wanna dance
Here’s somethin’ we can do
Shake our burdens down
And step out of the blue
Feel the heavy weight
Slowly disappear
A lighter, brighter day
Will help to make it clear

[br]
Take a minute to collect your thoughts
But don’t take too long
Yeah, there’s deep roots to nurture
But there’s high hopes to keep strong

[ch]
So, if you wanna dance
Here’s somethin’ you can do
Shake your burdens down
And step out of the blue
Feel the heavy weight
Slowly disappear
A lighter, brighter day
Will help to make it clear
