To live. To love. To know what we're truly made of.


'The Invitation' is a song of hope and transformation that beckons us to reflect upon our past, learn from our mistakes, and become our best selves so we can create a better future for all. The song was released in response to COVID-19 and entered into NPR's 2020 Tiny Desk Contest.


LYRICS:

What if we could go back in time?

Think of all the pain we could unwind

We could change the course of history

Like a sculptor reshaping destiny

Imagine the wars we'd unfight

And all of the wrongs we would right

We would design a different life

And all the broken-hearted would unite


To live, to love

To know what we're truly made of

This is the soul of creation

To learn, to grow

To trust in what we know

This is the Invitation


What if we could go further yet

And get over our failings and regret

There's so many ways that we could be

Shaping a new reality

To live, to love

To know what we're truly made of

This is the soul of creation

To learn, to grow

To trust in what we know

This is the Invitation


I can't take any more

I can't take any more

What are we dying for?

I'm just trying to survive

I've got to survive

But I want to thrive

And I don't want to feel

No, I can't feel

I'm numbing the pain inside

I know I can heal

I know I can heal

Keep my spirit alive


To live, to love

To know what we're truly made of

This is the soul of creation

To learn, to grow

To trust in what we know

This is the Invitation


To live, to love

To know what we're truly made of

To learn, to grow

To trust in what we know

To live, to feel

To love, to heal

This is the Invitation
