This song is a gift to my community after the Alameda fire ripped through our community destroying 2400 homes and hundreds of businesses in it's path. Any profits from the sale of this tune will go directly to support those affected.

Lyrics

Nothing can prepare you for those flames so hot
We think its easy to let go of it all, till it’s not
Nobody can fix it. Thats the nature of pain.
Grief rolls through our lives and we’re never the same
So grab onto this hand I reach out to you
Alone we are lost. Together we’ll pull through

And Cry all your tears, let the sky rain upon you and wash out your eyes
Cry your tears, and when they dry, spread your wings like the phoenix and rise.

Someday when the smoke clears, we’ll see what remains
Seeds left out in the rubble will sprout towards the sun.
But let your heart wail now. And let your soul scream.
Let those seeds in the rubble become your new dream.
And take hold of this hand I reach out to you.
Alone we are lost. Together we’ll pull through.

And Cry all your tears, let the sky rain upon you and wash out your eyes
Cry your tears, and when they dry, spread your wings like the phoenix and rise.
Cry all your tears, let the sky rain upon you and wash out your eyes
Cry your tears, and when they dry, spread your wings like the phoenix and rise.

Nothing can prepare you for a fire that hot.
We think it’s easy to let go of it all, but it’s not.
So grab onto these hands we reach out to you.
Alone we are lost. Together we’ll pull through.
