“The Key” (official video)

Posted on Updated on

“THE KEY” – THE VIDEO by Alan Morrison. The official animated video, displaying lyrics. This inspirational song for the downhearted, from my heart to yours, builds to a climax of orchestral & choral power to accompany the message. This is the title track from my new album, “The Key”. It has an 8-piece band plus the Stockholm Concert Orchestra, including tubular bells, timpani drums & choir. The credits are at the end of the video. Here is the essence: “For I have found that when I love, then strength will fill me from above.” Please share as widely as possible on social media. Thank you!

The Key – Lyrics:

When darkness falls —
obscures the view,
I will not fall me too.
For I have seen
a secret light
and I cannot deny that sight.

When stormy times
stir up my sea,
it will not hinder me.
For I have heard
a hidden sound
and through that song my voice is found.

Therefore I take these words
and live them in my life.
I will stand firm and strong
no matter if some strife
comes my way… today.

When leaves have gone —
made branches bare,
I will not feel despair.
For there’s the scent
of coming Spring
when I will spread my sleeping wings.

Strange times and bad rhymings
have almost broken me.
But hiding inside me
I found the key…
to me.

When hope is spent
and all is lost,
I will not count the cost.
For I went through
an open door
and it will open soon some more.

When I am weak
I will get strong —
it will not take me long.
For I have found
that when I love
then strength will fill me from above.

Therefore I take these words
and live them in my life.
I will stand firm and strong
no matter if some strife
comes my way… today.

So hold these thoughts
within your soul;
you’ll find they’ll make you whole.
Then take my hand
so we’ll be free
to live with grace and poetry.
