Song Info :  "The chorus of this song rattled around in my head a long time before the whole song got written. To me, it's a positive message of how music itself can get us through so much: tough times, and good times, peace and conflict. Music is that link that lifts us out of our situation and propels us toward something higher. And perhaps the most important thing, then, is just not stop singing!" - Eric Folkerth

Verse There's only one thing
That's to sing
To drive the doubt and fear away
And I've got the feeling
That to sing
Will get me through the darkest day

And when the nights, they get so lonely and long
I still have a choice
I can find peace within the very heart of a song
And I can lift up my voice
Chorus And I will sing for the suffering
I will sing for the beauty
I will sing for creation
I will not sing for duty
I will sing for the future
I will sing for the memory
I will sing for the struggle
I will sing for the glory of it all

I can find peace within the very heart of a song
And I can lift up my voice
Chorus And I will sing for the suffering
I will sing for the beauty
I will sing for creation
I will not sing for duty
I will sing for the future
I will sing for the memory
I will sing for the struggle
I will sing for the glory of it all
