Story behind the song
After viewing a photograph of an elderly Australian woman literally in tears at the sight of an entire aisle of shelves in a grocery store picked clean of goods by panic-buyers, and then reading a news story about a Burmese man killed by racists in the wake of the spread of the coronavirus, I couldn't help but use these hope-killing, spirit-withering acts of human selfishness and hatred as the subject matter of the song.
Lyrics
Until It Ends Lyrics & music by Loren Francis Spain Copyright @ 2020 Key = Db / Meter = 4/4 / Tempo @ 95 VERSE 1 Theres a sickness raging round the globe Is God testing us like he did Job? It's such a mystery How's it going to end? VERSE 2 People are hoarding things that others need Don't they know that nothing comes of greed But less for everyone On whom can we depend? CHORUS #1 Everybody, now's the time To think about what we can do To show each other how Together we can see this thing through BRIDGE (16-BAR ACOUSTIC PIANO SOLO) VERSE 3 Folks are pointing fingers in the face Of other people just because of their race It won't help anything 'Cause hate's a sickness, too VERSE 4 So, let's reach out with a helping hand Show the world that we will take a stand And only do the good things Until the crisis ends CHORUS #2 Everybody, now's the time To think about what we can do To show each other how Together we can see this thing through (repeat x 3)
