Don't You Cry

by - 8:09 PM





Hey, don’t you cry
Cause’ I got your back
When your heart’s crumbling to dust
I catch the gold inside

Hey, don’t you cry
Cause’ I know your face
When the world turned away
I keep your hope alive

Hey, don’t you cry
There’s a city beyond this place
I’ve got the missing keys
To a kingdom where you belong

Hey, don’t you cry
You’re not alone no more
You are a daughter
Brave warrior, you are a queen

Don’t you cry
Don’t you cry
The tears will shine your eyes
Don’t you cry
Don’t you cry
I keep your hope alive

Welcome to my wayfaring world of stories. I’m a traveling musician and music educator from Melbourne living in Kabul, Afghanistan. Join me on my quest to embrace people of peace in tough places, inspire creative education where none exists, spark conversations that challenge the status quo, and collaborate with like-minded young people to catalyze a movement of peacemaking through acts of compassion and creativity among the young and free. As a nomad at heart, my ‘home’ is wherever I journey with people on the ground and discover life on the frontiers.
