There must be a better way
  • Award Winner
  • Album Track

This song is about finding a better way to be, having explored all the 'dead end roads' in ones life. Its about finding peace and meaning out of chaos and suffering, and learning from our mistakes, paving the way for more compassionate and intuitive choices for ourselves and the world. The overall feeling the song emenates is one of over riding peace and harmony, elevating the listener above undertones of conflict and chaos, which are surrendering and unravelling beneath the surface, revealing unity, This song is an appeal to the heart.
