I wrote the lyrics and melody for While We're Here, but did not record my own version of the song. Instead I paid Elliott Sheridan to perform the music for me and Anlaik to sing the vocals.

While We're Here


Verse 1:
Moonbeams dance upon a lake
but you can't see it
in nature's breath tranquility
but you can't feel it

Pre-Chorus:
Open your eyes
put down that phone
clocks no longer tick
underneath a stone

Chorus:
While we're here
while we're here
love with all your heart
that's how to leave your mark

While we're here
while we're here
sing aloud your song
make right every wrong
while we're here
while we're here
while we're here
while we're here

Verse 2:
Holy water turns to wine
but you can't taste it
sunrise brings to you a gift
but you just waste it

Pre-Chorus:
Learn to forgive
learn to forget
a life not fully lived
will be your one regret

Chorus:
While we're here
while we're here
love with all your heart
that's how to leave your mark

While we're here
while we're here
sing aloud your song
make right every wrong
while we're here
while we're here
while we're here
while we're here

Bridge:
For each of us a journey
unto the promised land
washed away to memories
like footprints in the sand

Chorus:
While we're here
while we're here
love with all your heart
that's how to leave your mark

While we're here
while we're here
sing aloud your song
make right every wrong
while we're here
while we're here

Outro:
While we're here
while we're here
love with all your heart
that's how to leave your mark
while we're here
while we're here

Reviews of While We're Here on ReverbNation.com (song score: 8.0 out of 10):

  • A nicely drawn up guitar song with the focus on the melody more than singing. But I hear they reverbed the vocals and stretched the emotional atmosphere out.
  • An inspirational piano opening that serves as a good intro for a vocalist who has a lot of talent and passion in their lyrics and the tone they add to the track.
  • He has a really great voice. I will surely be looking him up for other songs. I would love to hear him perform live.
  • I like the melody of the song, but the singer's voice sounds a bit monotone, with no feeling. Though his high notes are nice.
  • He has a very nice voice I thought. I do feel he needs better music or this music needs to stick out a little more. Not that bad but not that great.
