about

Was written after the Earthquake in Haiti.

lyrics

Seize the Moment

The earth shakes
I’m wide-awake
The walls are coming down
I can’t take a breath
In the face of death
I lay here on the ground

My home is in ruins
Can I rise to my knees

Seize the moment
Let go of the fear
The time is now
The place is here

Stone by stone
I re-build my home
My feet back on the floor
With my own two hands
I’ll work the land
Change the life that I know

Break from this shadow
In to the light

Seize the moment
Let go of the fear
The time is now
The place is here

Seize the moment
Don’t shed another tear
The time is now
The place is here

Every step that I take
Each stumble each stride
Reminds me every day

Seize the moment
Let go of the fear
The time is now
The place is here

Seize the moment
Don’t shed another tear
The time is now
The place is here
