about

Written after the devastating Hurricane Sandy in NYC. The story uses the water element in metaphor for memories lost, the wisdom of Mother Nature, rising up and rebuilding out of the flood.

lyrics

Save Us All
Save Us All-(c)- 2013 Sonya Heller Music-ASCAP

Verse I

We watched the rising tide
The moon she lit the sky
She kissed us with her warm good bye
Hailed the wind and set
The sky on fire
She set the night on fire

Verse II

The flood gates lost their pride
They broke and opened wide
And memories came floating by
Photographs and Grammas lullaby

Chorus

Oh…Save us all …Save us all

Verse III

The buildings once stood tall
They laughed at natures call
They built monoliths and concrete walls
But as we rise so shall we fall
As we rise, so shall we fall

Chorus

Oh….Save us all …Save us all

Music bridge

Verse IV

I pray for brighter days
Your pain be cast away
The sun to shine and dry your eyes
And know that sometimes mercy comes disguised…

Yes...know that mercy comes disguised

In wisdom from the wise

Thru Mother Natures eyes

In wisdom from the wise

Like Grammas lullabies

Grammas lullabies

To save us all

Save us all
