HERE BEFORE

We humbly, in response to the recent tragedy in Las Vegas, dedicate this tune with Love to the victims of gun violence. We join our voices in urgency. We share our concern regarding the power and fear invested in guns, weaponry and their unnecessary accumulation. We pray that a shift in hearts and a shift in thought will lead to a change in policy. – Sheree & V.

HERE BEFORE

Mmmm, mmmm
Let me clear my eyes
Let me clear my throat
Of this knot that’s making me choke

Today we rose
We made plans to go
To enjoy a beautiful show

Instead you died
I was there next to you
We heard the shots
I could not rescue you

Why does it feel like we’ve been here before
Like, yeah, of course, are we numb?
The guns and amm, are they worth all the lives
Sacrificed for their right to be had?

We had a plan this morning
We’d stop for coffee, later dance and laugh

He had a plan this morning
His life in darkness
He found a way out

Why did he have to take you down?
What is the meaning of this nonsense?
God, please help me understand
Where I’ve failed to Love
Can I make up for that?

Why does it feel like we’ve been here before
Like yeah, of course, are numb?
I’m right, you’re wrong, the death toll keeps getting high
How many lives until we figure it out?

Tonight you rest

In the arms of God you’ll be

Tonight I’ll bet that

He does not exist

Why does it feel like we’ve been here before
Like, yeah, of course, are we numb?
