Description

Read my story - 100 Days In Jakarta http://www.kinagrannis.com Meet "For Now," one of the 2 songs I wrote while I was held in Jakarta for 100 Days. It helped me find perspective and gratitude during this time. Listen to "For Now" iTunes: http://radi.al/jakartaitunes Spotify: http://radi.al/jakartaspotify Google Play: http://radi.al/jakartagoogle FOR NOW Sometimes I think about the ones that we’ve replaced All the millions underneath the burnt and waste And I get sad because of course we’ll be the same All of history collapsing in its wake Maybe it’s enough that I have laid here Maybe it’s enough that I have known inside my head, and Maybe it’s enough to know that we were here together And that we are the ones We are the ones We are the ones for now I heard that someday when they look up at the night They’ll see nothing but a black and starless sky And they’ll tell stories of some old and callow time Claiming spectacles of brilliant burning lights Maybe it’s enough that I have laid here Maybe it’s enough that I have known inside my head, and Maybe it’s enough to know that we were here together And that we are the ones We are the ones We are the ones for now So maybe this is what it takes to realize I am grateful just that I have been alive And I’ll be happy if I look back on my life Been a sister, been a mother, been a wife Maybe it’s enough that I have laid here Maybe it’s enough that I have known inside my head, and Maybe it’s enough to know that we were here together And that we are the ones We are the ones We are the ones for now
