The Splendor by TOMA

 

Version One

 

And I wonder (yes I do) what this world is coming

for children, me and you

And I wonder (better believe it) bout me and you

and what we can do, to change a thing or two

 

Blank Chorus

 

Heard a man (yes I did) that his voice didn’t matter

Can’t remember his religion or the color of his face

Heard a woman say (I swear it) that no one’s ever listening to what I say,

Even when I’m polite about it

 

So what are we to do

Together us few

Raise a hand

Take a stand

For the Splendor of this land

 

And I wonder (does everyone know) what this world has to offer

It’s resting right in the palms of our hands

And I wonder (surely everyone knows) that love is at our command

And we have the freedom to do all that we can

 

So what are we to do

Together us few

Raise a hand

Take a stand

For the Splendor of this land

NOTE: I wrote this song and shared it with Mr. Travis Charbeneau, who liked it so much he wanted to work on it in his studio using his lap steel guitar. He did marvelous work. Sadly, he died of cancer shortly thereafter, and I am so glad to have had my time with him especially for what he has brought to my work.

I wrote this song some ten years ago.
