About the Song from music therapist Jenny Plume

This is a song that describes how music has become such an integral part of the hospital and how it has become part of the backdrop to the everyday happenings here. It alludes to both the joy and the heartache of the children and families and how the music, that is everywhere, helps to heal.

Gigi and Jenny Plume

Lyrics

I hear these walls have been singing a song
Strumming and drumming and ringing along
Princes and princesses beautiful and strong
Quietly can you hear them

I hear these walls have been crying a tear
Holding us up through the silence and fear
Diamonds in the rough and diamonds in the clear
But if you listen hard you’ll still hear them…play a ...

A symphony rainbow
A chorus so bright
An infinite melody
A joyous twilight
Everywhere around us
We sing with our might
Music is healing
Us all through the night

I’ve heard these walls have been doing a dance
Swayin’ and praying for a second chance
Brothers and sisters all holding hands
Tell me now can you feel it…that…

Join in the band, take a step clap your hands and you might
Feel with your heart from the first note it starts then you ride…on a

A symphony rainbow
A chorus so bright
An infinite melody
A joyous twilight
Everywhere around us
We sing with our might
Music is healing
Us all through the night
