lyrics

I used to think there'd be a day

When something swept these blues away.
We've all seen things fall apart.

We've all wondered where to start.

It seems profoundly broken.

It just seems all too hard.

Every day, it's little things

In my neighborhood a child sings.
See the laughter in her eyes
Watch a new world start to rise.
Find a way to make it simple.
Although the change is hard.

So light a fire

But don't fan the flames
A world of difference
But still the same
Ignore the chaos

Don't play the game
Share a vision

Share a greater name

A slow fire keeps us warm.

Outside the flames of discord storm.
We make connections, play a part,
Resolve the mystery of our hearts.
Find a way to make it simple.
Although it seems so hard.

So light a fire

But don't fan the flames
A world of difference
But still the same
Ignore the chaos

Don't play the game 
Share a vision

Share a greater name

We can be together

It's not a choice of whether

The world will change

One way or another.

It all starts with a whisper

See her eyes - can you resist her?
All the noise and division

Can fade away.

Every day, it's little things

In my neighborhood a child sings.
See the laughter in her eyes
Watch a new world start to rise.
Find a way to make it simple.
Maybe not so hard.

about

Jeff and Maya Bohnhoff San Jose, California

Jeff and Maya have an identity crisis. Their music is sometimes uproariously funny parody (like their spot-on "Bohemian Rhapsody" parody "Midichlorian Rhapsody", or hauntingly beautiful, like "Road to Jerusalem" or "Manhattan Sleeps". One way or another, their music will create strong emotions. Jeff and Maya have been creating music together since 1979, and plan to continue for some time to come. ... more
