Battle Hymn for an Army of Lovers (Tiny Desk Contest 2017 entry)

October 19, 2019


v1. Change is coming once again,
except this time it feels like the world’s about to end. White-robed devils in plain sight,
angry protests in the streets night after night, and it weighs heavy on my mind. Why are we so quick to run backwards after
all this time? But I won’t let it change my heart. I was born
full of love and hope and, when I die,
that’s how I’ll depart. Ch. And when you find yourself
incapable of seeing eye to eye
remember: when they go low, we go high. v2. Change is coming — that’s for sure. We gave a madman all the keys
and let him walk right in the door. And I don’t think he’ll see the light,
until the whole world is on fire, but that’s alright — that’s alright. We will still be here when he’s gone,
and if it doesn’t kill us all, well it sure will make us strong. Don’t let four years change your heart! We were not born
hating each other — now is not the time,
not the time to start. Ch. And when you find yourself
incapable of seeing eye to eye
remember: when they go low, we go high. Bridge:
There’s a song penned for soldiers — it says, “let us live to make men free.” We’re all sisters. We’re all brothers. Standing on each others’ shoulders
there’s no wall we cannot scale. We are an army of lovers,
and we shall not fail. Ch. So when you find yourself
incapable of seeing eye to eye
remember: when they go low, we go high
we go high we go high
we go high, we go high,
high, high, high. Outro:
People, get ready. I said, people,
get ready. People, get ready. People, get ready.

  1. This song is so powerful and relevant! Would you mind if I used it as the music in my Heidelberg Women's March vlog (one of the March on Washington sister marches)? No other song fits quite as well! I would give credit, of course.

  2. I love everything about this, Crystal. The message, the location, the music/vibe, your voice, your style, your spirit. Thank you! Will be sharing this often.
