When you’ve been a songwriter all of your life, you can’t help but filter world events through your songwriting channels and if the muses are in sync, you respond by writing a song. Through the universal language of music, Jim invites his listeners to join him in processing their thoughts and feelings, no matter how difficult the topic. The Orlando shootings happened to be the catalyst for this song but the overriding topic has to do with people finding love and acceptance in their hearts for all diversities of people who share life on this planet.
For me, Jim’s songs have always had that magical combination of thought-provoking lyrics walking perfectly in step with a catchy melody and chords. This new song is a perfect example of that, so I hope you enjoy the words and the music that came rushing out of the head and soul of my favorite singer-songwriter, my husband, Jim Peterik.
