I wrote this song in response to the unspeakable events happening in our world in terms of racial injustice, human rights violations, and the discovery of indigenous children buried at a former Residential School in BC. Being human is both shameful and wonderful; this song explores the full range. While we cannot fix what has happened we can speak out and stand for justice, accountability, responsibility and integrity. This song is dedicated to our lost children and their loved ones.
Be gentle is about grace and being gentle on yourself in these difficult times of the pandemic. Lyrics: Be Gentle Copyright Heather Hill – Feb, 2021 I’ll be gentle I’ll be gentle I’ll be gentle to myself It’s the part of me That’s my humanity That harbours cruelty and great love It’s the part of me I am quick to bury That will always find its way to light Oh be gentle, Oh be gentle Oh be gentle to yourself It’s that part of you The weapon cuts right through But can never take your spark It’s the part of you Your sacrifice comes due Surrenders you to love Oh be gentle, Oh be gentle Oh be gentle to yourself Grace go with you - Grace be with you – Grace the gentle in you Oh be gentle, Oh be gentle Oh be gentle to ourselves (no sing)
