FINNEAS – What They’ll Say About Us Lyrics

What They’ll Say About Us By FINNEAS

You’re tired now, lie down
I’ll be waitin’ to give you the good news
It might take patience
And when you wake up, it won’t be over
So don’t give up

We’ve got the time to take the world
And make it better than it ever was
That’s what they’ll say about us

If I say a cliche, it’s ’cause I mean it
We can’t walk away, we gotta get in between it
And when you wake up, we’ll grow together
So don’t you give up

We’ve got the time to take the world
And make it better than it ever was
That’s what they’ll say about us

I never said it would be easy
I’m never giving up, believe me
I used to think the pain would fade, but it never does

You’re tired now, lie down
I’ll be waitin’ to give you the good news
It might take patience
And if you don’t wake up
I’ll know you tried to
I wish you could see him
He looks just like you


FINNEAS said Via Spin.com: I wrote this song in June after spending the day at a protest in Downtown LA, filled with hope with the prospect that millions of people were coming together from all over the world to fight against institutionalized racism and inequality. During that time, I’d also been following Amanda Kloots as she documented her husband Nick Cordero’s time in the ICU while in a coma after being admitted for COVID-19. Imagining her sitting by his side, waiting, hopeful for him to wake up, it got me thinking about all the millions of people, all over the world, who also have loved ones, parents, children and extended family members going through the same thing. Fighting this horrific virus. Some will over-come and wake up again, while others, tragically may not. This song is dedicated to all who have had to endure this year. I hope this song can offer some sort of comfort to those who may need it.
