about

A bright, hopeful reggae-styled anthem to lift you above the storms of the world; to a brighter day.

"This songs comes from my heart," Keith explains. "It's a hopeful, commentary on the world today. A long time in coming from writing to final recording and mixing. I'm thankful to all the international artists who contributed vocals to the song; Maria Ilieva (Bulgaria), Pete Simpson (UK), Karina Crystal (Russia), JaiC (Lebanon), and Andre Lassalle on guitar. It's amazing how their talents and energies brought the project to higher levels. I thank you all."

Regarding the song's creation, "I feel blessed to have listened to my muse and be patient in creating it," he reveals. "Some songs deserved all the time in the world to get it right (or close to right as possible). This is one. If I die any time soon, I'll feel I left something of substance. Even if lyrically it's idealistic and not realistic. I hope to share this with as many people around the world as possible."

Dedicated to legendary reggae engineer Philip Smart and the inspirational Third World lead vocalist, Bunny Rugs; RIP.

In a world that seems to be heading backwards.
Evolving ain't in anyone's mind.
Yet you look into the children's eyes
there's hope of brighter days for mankind.
So, let's go and dance naively
and sing what's possible to achieve.
Never wake up from this dream
that more people are starting to believe.

Brighter days, we pray, they will come

One world, one heart, one soul, one love
sing it and we'll live it one day - mm hmmmm
sing it and we'll live it one day-----
One world, one heart, one soul, one love
sing it and we'll live it one day, - mm, hmmm
sing it and we'll live it one day yeah

If the price of freedom and peace,
just for a moment in time,
was to give up your worldly possessions
every jewel, every last dime.
Would we do it? Could we commit?
To thine own self be true.
'Cause what you post is just a boast for most
yet action is still louder in this world.

Yes, the more we sing, together we're stronger

One world, one heart, one soul, one love
sing it and we'll live it one day - mm hmmmm
sing it and we'll live it one day-----
One world, one heart, one soul, one love
sing it and we'll live it one day, - mm, hmmm
sing it and we'll live it one day yeah


We'll live it one day, One world, brighter days,
ah children. The hope in your eyes is bright
as the stars in the sky.
