We Are One by Rebecca Reid

I haven't shared any of my original music on this page yet because I've got songs in production with a producer in Edmonton and they're not ready yet! (Soooo soon though, so stay tuned) But I wrote this song yesterday and it’s called, “We are one.” I felt that putting out this song in the form that it's in (recorded in my basement and produced by yours truly) was appropriate given the relevance of it's message. In so many ways we, as a global community, have come together over the past few weeks which has been amazing to see. However, there are also so many people who are terrified either working on the front lines or sitting at home trying to abide by social isolation. As a medical student I usually work at the hospital, but I’m not able to do that right now because it’s not safe, which makes me feel like I’m letting down my teammates and my patients. While I’ve been trying to take full advantage of my unanticipated ‘vacation’ to catch up on sleep and vitamin D, I have also been feeling helpless and useless. On the bright side, however, when I have time at home I have a tendency to write music. When put in dark places human will create. The artists draw, the writers write, the song writers sing. So, here is a song for anyone who needs an anthem right now. To my friends and family, to my healthcare colleagues who are putting their lives on the line, to those who are doing their part by staying put, this song is for you. Please share with anyone who needs a light in the darkness. You can download the song on my website for free. We Are One We are one Standing together Can we come together Fighting for the weaker among us On the brink of survival Can we find some common ground to stand on Each one holding something simple Alone we stand Together we rise We are one Standing together Can we come together Fighting for the weaker among us See through your fears We all want the same thing Safety, loving, only if we Find each other In the darkness We are one Standing together Can we come together Fighting for the weaker among us We are We are one Standing together Can we come together Fighting for the weaker among us IG @rebeccareid.music FB @rebeccareidmusic Web www.rebeccareidmusic.com
