Your Beloved Home - single art 1000x1000.jpg

How does one respond to the horrific and inhuman invasion of Ukraine by Russia? Millions of people around the world, including many Russians, have united against this atrocity. Meanwhile, I have written a song dedicated to the courageous people of Ukraine. See the video now!

My hope is to spread the song/video virally to people around the world to help raise spirits and money - the latter, to three of many organizations providing humanitarian and medical relief to the brave and deserving Ukrainian people!
 
UNICEF Ukraine Relief Fund
Ukraine - Doctors Without Borders
United Nations World Food Programme (WFP)
 
I want to thank Rick Riso for his heartfelt performance, Marty Rifkin for his extraordinary musicianship and production, Grant Maloy Smith for the video - and many friends and family whose contributions are making this entire project possible.

LYRIC

To the people of Ukraine
Standing proud and tall
With hearts that beat for freedom
We support you one and all

You have tasted newfound liberties
Not about to let them go
Cuz the seeds of all free nations
Always need to grow, this is…

Your beloved home
Where you have your friends and families
Your beloved home
Where you live in democracy
 
A home you have to save
In a war you didn’t start
They can try to take your land and lives
But they’ll never win your heart
s

To the patriots in arms
Heroes out-manned
Like David and Goliath
But without a stone in hand
       
You’re trying to protect your future
And your sons and daughters too
And bravely guard your rightful home
Oh, what else can you do? This is…

Your beloved home
Not a place for some cruel invader
Your beloved home
Where your future’s even greater

A home you have to save
In a war you didn’t start
They can try to take your land and lives
But they’ll never win your heart
s

And though your blood has spilled
They cannot break your will
Cuz you know it’s worth the fight when you’re in the right
And you’ll battle to your last breath
Cuz this is life and death
Buying time with your own lives until the end’s in sight, it’s…

Your beloved home
Where you have a deep connection
Your beloved home
A place with free elections

A home that’s being shattered
With families torn apart
They can try to take your land and lives
But they’ll never win your hearts!


Oh, it's...

your beloved home
You’re defending on your own
and your beloved home
Just know you’re not alone

The Free World’s trying to do its part
To support your courage from the start
It’s your beloved home
Your beloved home
They can try to take your land and lives
But they’ll never win your hearts!

YOUR BELOVED HOME
