A Video for “Love for our Future”

I’ve turned my hand to making a little home-made video for my climate-science-electro-pop-dance track “Love for our Future”, as part of my Rose Carrousel music project. Thanks to Sudip Khadka for his excellent camera work. I’ve added the lyrics as text – you can read them if you turn on cc (see instructions below the video). I hope you find the lyrics inspiring and uplifting when thinking about caring for our future world. If you like the track you can buy a copy at bandcamp. 50% of sales go to the Long Future Foundation.

Thanks to my girls Stella and Lucinda for being such good sports with the super-hero capes in the video footage I took of them.

 

Want to read the lyrics while you listen? Turn on cc:  There is a little box with the letters cc that you turn on at the bottom of the youtube window, or you will find it if you click on the 3 little vertical dots at the top right of the youtube window on your phone.

By request, here are the lyrics:

Love for our Future
Heidi Edmonds

Verse:
This is the sound of my heart beating
And a little heart beating, beating next to mine
And there’s a little billion heart beats beating, keeping time
When I hold my little loves in my arms I wonder how can I best show love for our future
Show love for our future

Clean air, green trees, little birds tweeting
It’s amazing this place we live
I want these wonderful things
in my girls’ futures

Chorus:
Buy less
Love More
Speak up
For the future of those that we adore

Its time for us
to be superheroes
and save
the world

repeat chorus

break
don’t need these big shiny things
just time for conversations and love
don’t need these big shiny things
just a healthy planet and food to eat

Verse 2:

This is my heart beating
These are my feet stomping
Won’t you come and join the dance to do all we can
to show love to the future, show love for our future

Tend your garden
Buy an education
For a little girl on the other side of the world
Put solar panels on your roof darling

we can keep our plant safe for the ones we love
for our little ones

Second Chorus:
Buy less
Love More
Speak up
For the future of those that we adore

Its time for us
to be superheroes
and save
the world

Outro:
we’re going to weather this together
we’re going to weather this together
keep the coal on the ground and the solar panels high on the roof
we’re going to weather this together
we’re going to weather this together
see the birds in the sky and these green trees and the waves crashing to the shore

Buy less
Love More
Speak up
For the future of those that we adore

for the future of those that we adore
