COLLECTIVE SONG LYRICS

Impermanence permeates our lives, as we stay inside 

Gratitude for the things once taken for granted 

Our mental states, reaching out, break the loneliness 

Emotions emerge in these new environments. 

 

Chorus 

Community of love 

Neighborhoods come together 

Some are ok and some are suffering 

That’s why we hold each other’s space with gentle grace 

 

Rituals, some stay the same, some make us feel insane 

Get out of bed, wash our face, drink the coffee, find our ground 

Take a walk, change the scene, find nurturing 

From 6 feet away, craving the hugs we know will come someday. 

 

Repeat Chorus 

 

Bridge 

Spring always comes, look up 

Even when it rains 

Nature blooms a higher power 

Trust in uncertainty 

Spring always comes, look up 

Even when it rains.

Although physically separated by this virus, our ambition is to connect and heal through the power of music, virtually! This is why we are launching CMTF’s Song Session for the Frontline hosted by George Stroumboulopoulos. Together, we will unite voices and hope from across the country. With thoughts and ideas shared by our followers on social media, Trish MacAulay, a certified music therapist, will compose a song to be premiered live on June 7th along with special performances by: 

STORRY, Royal Wood, Partner, Simone Denny, Lexxicon, The Trews, Ammoye, The Jerry Cans, Jesse Maxwell, Fleece, Lu, Simone Denny, Mponda

and more to be announced!

Follow @cdnmusictherapy on Instagram and be sure to tune in on Sunday, June 7th from 1 - 3pm (EDT)!

The power of music therapy is needed now more than ever. Many certified music therapists are working in healthcare settings where COVID-19 is a reality. They have seen the profound impact it has on the mental health of frontline workers, especially those working directly with patients who are suffering. Families of healthcare workers are also facing the anxiety of seeing their loved ones go into work each day and knowing the risk of infection. In some cases, these families are enduring isolation from each other. The mental health implications will be long-lasting.

The CMTF wants to help meet the mental health needs of these workers and their families during this time. We are raising money that will go directly to funding free online music therapy sessions for frontline healthcare workers and their families, across Canada. All music therapy services will be provided by trained, certified music therapists using proven approaches for mental health. The more money raised, the more people on the frontlines and their families will be helped.

Thank you to our generous sponsors!
