Track: We are here
ARTIST : Alicia Keys
ALBUM: None (a Single)
RELEASED: September 15 2014

This is one of my favourite song of 2014, I have always been a huge fan of Alicia Keys, her keyboard always rends my heart in pieces but #WeAreHere shot her up several levels in the echelon of artist I admire.

I fell in love with this song the first time I heard it and it soon enjoyed countless repeat on my playlist. I love this sing not just because it’s beautiful but also because of the timing of it’s release and the agent of change it has become. Via this song, Alicia Keys has gone beyond effecting change with just music she has started a movement which in few months has achieved a lot worldwide. If only most artist will see they owe the world greater social responsibility instead of dishing out junk in the name of music.

#WeAreHere
We are here
We are here for all of us
We are here for all of us
It’s why we are here, why we are here
We are here

Bombs over Baghdad
Tryna get something we never heard
Let’s start with a good dad
So real but it’s so sad
And while we’re burning this incense
We gon’ pray for the innocent
Cause right now it don’t make sense
Right now it don’t make sense
Let’s talk about chi-town
Let’s talk about Gaza
Let’s talk about
Let’s talk about Israel
Right now it is real
Let’s talk about
Let’s talk Nigeria, and the mass hysteria
Our souls are brought together so that we could love each other brother

We are here
We are here for all of us
We are here for all of us
It’s why we are here, why we are here
We are here

No guns made in Harlem
But yet Crime is a problem
He wanna shine, he wanna rob ’em
Single mother, where they come from?
How we gonna save the nation
With no support for education
Cause right now it don’t make sense
Right now it don’t make sense
Let’s talk about our part
My heart touch your heart
Let’s talk about
Let’s talk about living
Had enough of dying
Not what we all about
Let’s do more giving
Do more forgiving, yeah
Our souls are brought together so that we can love each other sister

We are here
We are here for all of us
We are here for all of us
It’s why we are here, why we are here
We are here
We are here
We are here for all of us
We are here for all of us
It’s why we are here, why we are here
We are here
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
We are here
We are here for all of us
We are here for all of us
It’s why we are here, why we are here
We are here
We are here
We are here for all of us
We are here for all of us
It’s why we are here, why we are here
We are here
