Lead vocal Mark Joseph. Arranged by Evan Chapman. Musical Director Caitlin Banks. Lyrics: Cheering crowds lined the streets Children's laughter, turned to screams As chaos fell like bitter rain Crashing thunder filled with violent hate Oh, there's clarity with time But when darkness clouds my eyes I don't have a song for that When the words just disappear I don't know what's going on No, it's not that I don't care But sometimes in this crazy world There's just no way to explain When it goes wrong I don't have a song to play for that When it all goes wrong I don't have song to play for that At the grave of a cherished friend Another life too young to end And though I smile at the memories Sounds of hallelujah Can't dry the tears they leave There's clarity with time But when sadness clouds my eyes Chorus I've been tested, I've been hurt I've seen the trials of this world Ooh, ooh There's a fire in my chest There's still so much left unsaid But I've got nothing left that I can say Chorus CREDITS: "I Don't Have a Song for That" Ben Johnston: composer, co-producer Jordan Lucero: composer Mark Joseph: lead vocal Evan Chapman: arranger, co-producer, piano Caitlin Banks: musical director Strings: Pamela Cummings: violin Tim Reynolds: violin Dan Lay: viola Ro Rowan: cello Mali Obamsawin: double bass Rhythm Section: Marton Bisits: guitar Aaron Liao: bass Elena Bonomo: percussion Choir: Jessie Putnam: soprano Hannah Falestiny: soprano Eva Gertz: soprano Lana Scott: soprano Melissa Johnston: soprano Celia Tow: soprano Madeleine Brown: alto Lindsay Pennington: alto Shannon Devine: alto Carolann Hill: alto Kelly Eberle: alto Hayley Mandel: alto Emily Moran: alto Brooke Stephenson: alto Julia Balit: alto Erin Cafferky: alto Laura Edwards: alto Jean Marc Tardieu: tenor Alex Issayid: tenor Zach Blomster: tenor Erik Dulick: tenor Alec Alabado: tenor Andre Madatian: bass Skip Lewan: bass Ryan Winslow: bass TJ Liquori: bass Dalton Harts: bass Arthur Smeall: bass Sam Fischer: bass Recorded live at the Berklee Performance Center (BPC) Marc Malanca: lighting designer Justin Vining: stage crew William Rodriguez: stage crew Ryan Jones: production manager Recorded by the BPC Studio Alex Rodriguez: recording engineer Simon Katz: mixing engineer, assistant recording engineer Filmed by 21summit Productions Joe Barnard: videographer, editor Mastered by M Works Studios Jonathan Wyner: engineer
