Sing a new song

Story

Eliza: vocals  Bob Willoughby: piano  Grant Cuthbertson: bass   Teal Brown: drums

 

I have so much to say about this song.  Whenever I'm singing it, it brings me back to a universal truth: the place that I need to be is here.  This simple song that I wrote driving down the mountain to my first ever songwriter in the round experience has been more influential on my life than any other song I've written.  It appeared on a Putumayo World Music album in 2007 on a disc with Old Crow Medicine Show, The Little Willies, Ruthie Foster, Tim O'Brien, Allison Brown - it goes on and on!  What incredible company!  And my little song took me for quite a ride.  I will always be SO grateful to the folks at Putumayo!  It has been my favorite label since I was about 15 and it was incredible to have a track included.

Lyrics

Chorus:

Sing a new song

In the rain

Sing a new song

To the drops coming down

Sing a new song

Where you are

Sing a new song

Where the sky meets the ground

 

Verse:

I don’t always know what’s right

And sometimes not even what’s real

But there’s only one place to stand

And it starts with my toe and ends with my heel

 

Verse:

It may be a mystery

But somehow, things will come clear

For now what I know for sure

Is the place that I need to be is here
