"Purpose flows in my veins, so I’m burning the midnight oil again..."
A song dedicated to how you and I will choose to live our hundred years around the sun.  May we dance our dance, and taste like sweat.  


We Are Here

Music and Lyrics by Emily Potter

Capo I

Intro: C G Am


C  G

I’m not saying I can fix you

Am  F 

I don’t feel the need to

C  G

Cause we’re not broken 

Am  F

When will we let that soak in 

C  G

I don’t need you to love me

Am  F

Or think anything I do is necessary

C  G  Am  F

We’ve just got a little time on this sphere

C G  Am 

We are here

C G  Am 

C   G

I danced on my birthday

Am  F

In this body suit of clay

C  G

Everywhere around me 

Am  F

The people were dancing free

C  G

Across the room was a vision

Am  F

Asking me to make a decision

C G Am  F

Cross this floor like death was near

C G  Am 

Start right here

C G  Am


(BRIDGE)

F  G

Will I run or crawl on fumes

Am  G

Will I dance across this room

F  G  Am  

Will I skirt the walls and not be seen

F  G

Will I taste like sweat when I am done

Am   G

With my hundred years around the sun

F   G

How will I enter the tomb

                                              C     G Am    

Will I dance across this room

 C  G  Am 


C    G   

I’m gonna make it to the world stage 

Am    F

With one truth flying off my set page

C   G

Believe in the dream 

Am   F

And we’ll see our people dance free

C   G

Purpose flows in my veins

Am   F

So I’m burning the midnight oil again

C   G Am  F

To cross the room without fear

C G Am

We are here


With love,

Emily
