A simple, very stripped back acoustic song originally written in August 2017 with a strong, positive message about unity, understanding and freedom in the world today.

Deri's superb vocal transformed a simple song into something special for me.


Vocal by Deri.

The lyric is called ‘It’s Up To Us!’ and it all began when listening to a news bulletin about a terrorist attack in France. This was quickly followed by more bulletins about further attacks elsewhere in the world and I thought “why can’t we all just get along together, it’s up to us really” and the first lyrical seeds were sown. When the first verse was completed, I thought it might suit a few piano chords I was playing with at the time and hey, it seemed a perfect fit so I continued with it. With the help of talented session musician, Deri on vocals, the result is a song that I’m really quite proud of.
I have no problems
I have no nagging doubts
I have no anger
Although I scream and shout

I have no enemies
No animosity
I think about freedom
And what its meant to be

I see the danger
If we can't unite as one
We fall apart and freedom has gone

I see the danger
When the lost are lead by a few
With cold hearts
And one point of view

It's up to us
All of us!

I've no illusions
It's plain to see
It's not about religion
It's about you and me

It's a long road
We just have to take
Respect for all cultures
Resolves fear and hate

I see the danger
If we can't unite as one
We fall apart and freedom has gone

I see the danger
If we can't unite as one
We fall apart and freedom has gone

It's up to us
All of us!

It's Up To Us

I see the danger
If we can't unite as one
We fall apart and freedom has gone

I see the danger
When the lost are lead by a few
With cold hearts
And one point of view

It's up to us
All of us!

I see the danger
If we can't unite as one
We fall apart and freedom has gone

I see the danger
When the lost are lead by a few
With cold hearts
And one point of view

It's up to us
All of us

I see the danger
If we can't unite as one
We fall apart and freedom has gone

I see the danger
If we can't unite as one
We fall apart and freedom has gone

It's up to us
All of us

It's up to us
