This was another early song in my time volunteering at the refugee center. We wrote this song in March 2017. The song was inspired by lines from a Rumi poem, which Sarah wrote at the top of our poetry paper that day:
Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field
I’ll meet you there
This was the first song to introduce a theme that has since resurfaced in the writing of several other songs. This is the idea that we are all human, and we are all comprised of the same stuff, flesh and blood, and our blood flows red in our veins.
This one of the songs that is not entirely finished, but I think it holds much promise.
The following is a clip from a runthrough of the song on the afternoon we wrote it at the center:
