about

Witten, recorded and produced by OPUS Musicians in isolation during the 2020 lockdown, in support of our friends and colleagues in the NHS.

lyrics

This song comes to you with love and tenderness and care
As the darkness tests our mettle, might and main
And the warmth of the sun grows as we whisper in a prayer
This time will soon be over, health and freedom we’ll regain

Ooooo Oooo Oooo
How on earth did we get here?
Our world turned upside down – we stumble on!

Ooooo Oooo Oooo
Isolate and persevere
We’ll fight and we will win - We must be strong
This won’t last long! …

So let’s make the distance social, while we cannot come too near
We’ll send you all this heartfelt joyful song
Even though we cannot be there, we are thinking of you here
Can we bridge the gap with music, as we hope it won’t be long

Ooooo Oooo Oooo
How on earth did we get here?
Our world turned upside down – we stumble on!

Ooooo Oooo Oooo
Isolate and persevere
We’ll fight and we will win - We must be strong
This won’t last long! … No, it won’t last long!

Ooooo Oooo Oooo
How on earth did we get here?
Our world turned upside down – we stumble on!

Ooooo Oooo Oooo
Isolate and persevere
We’ll fight and we will win - We must be strong
This won’t last long! … No, it won’t last long!

We look forward to the day when we can all sit in the sun
Taking off the gloves and mask and breathe a sigh
Then we’ll know that it is over and the battle has been won
But for now we reach out to you, our arms are open wide

Ooooo Oooo Oooo
How on earth did we get here?
Our world turned upside down – we stumble on!

Ooooo Oooo Oooo
Isolate and persevere
We’ll fight and we will win - We must be strong
This won’t last long! … No, it won’t last long!

Ooooo Oooo Oooo
How on earth did we get here?
Our world turned upside down – we stumble on!

Ooooo Oooo Oooo
Isolate and persevere
We’ll fight and we will win - We must be strong
This won’t last long! … No, it won’t last long!
No, it won’t last long!
.…. it won’t last long!
