Melissa Etheridge …. ‘PULSE’ …. “Anthem for Our Sorrow …. “!!

MUSIC IS THE VOICE OF THE SOUL

I just found out about her song this afternoon.

We all know how soothing music is at times when the heart aches.

We are hurting in Orlando.

It’s been a long week.

At this time, all I have found is the song in SoundCloud.

It’s a beautiful, amazing, heartfelt song.

As soon as she publishes a YouTube video, I will post it.

For the time being, click on the link provided below and listen to the lyric of this powerful song.

An anthem indeed!

The legendary out singer initially wrote a song about Orlando to make herself less scared and angry.

But putting it out into the world, “feels like holding someone’s hand.”

Melissa Etheridge had just rolled into New York City on her tour bus Sunday mornin, June 12, when she heard the news about Orlando.

Like most LGBT people, she instantly felt helpless and uneasy.

“I found myself roaming around my apartment,” she tells The Advocate. After spending too much time staring at the nearby Freedom Tower, she picked up her guitar. “I knew that would make me feel better, and I just started writing.”

The result is “Pulse,” a rousing testament to humanity and love overcoming hate. In the song, Etheridge sings,

“I dream in a world that wants my soul / That tells me if I hate I can control / But I don’t believe it / I cannot conceive it / Because everybody has a pulse”

It’s earnest but beautiful; steadfastly positive against all odds.

“Once again I hang my head to cry / I can’t find a reason why they died / We will find the answer / Blowin’ in the wind”

PULSE

(LOVE WILL ALWAYS WIN)
Everybody’s got a pain inside
Imaginary wounds they fight to hide
How can I hate them
When everybody’s got a pulse

I dream in a world that wants my soul
That tells me if I hate I can control
But I don’t believe it
I cannot conceive it because
Everybody’s got a pulse

CHORUS
I am human I am love
And my heart beats with my blood
Love will always win
Underneath the skin
Everybody’s got a pulse

Once again I hang my head to cry
I can’t find the reason why they died
We will find the answer
Blowing in the wind that
Everybody’s got a pulse

CHORUS
Who ya gonna hate now
When there’s no one left but you
Who ya gonna gun down
When you can’t kill the truth
That its inside of us
It’s inside the blood
It’s inside a pulse

I am human I am love
And my heart beats in my blood
Love will always win
Underneath the skin
Everybody’s got a pulse

Hands up if you’re alive
Hands up if you’re alive

Love will always win
Underneath the skin
Everybody’s got a pulse

TRIBUTE

The Orlando massacre has led to many moving tributes and emotional speeches. Now, we have a song – Eli Lieb and Brandon Skeie have released “Pulse“, a beautiful, emotional song that encapsulates the tragedy, along with the outpouring of love and strength that we’ve seen in its aftermath.

Out gay singers Eli Lieb and Brandon Skeie penned an emotional duet in the wake of the Orlando gay nightclub massacre aptly titled, “Pulse.”

The singers dedicated the song to the victims of the mass shooting.

The most resonant lyric of the song might just be, “I shouldn’t have to change who I am to count as a human.”

Lieb and Skeie filmed their music video on the streets of West Hollywood on Sunday after writing the song in just a matter of hours.

“Feel My Pulse”, A Song Dedicated To The Orlando Victims, Will Make You Cry Again

RBLine

Here are the lyrics to the song

So you say this is human
Your heartbeat versus mine
I’m in chains cause I’m choosing
showing love or living life
I shouldn’t have to leave where I stand
I shouldn’t have to change who I am
To count as a human
Feel my pulse
With your hand on my heart
You know it beats just as hard as yours
Feel my pulse
Feel my pulse
Can’t you see that im scarred
I’m just the same as you are so just
Feel my pulse

I wish I could reach them
And strip away what separates
It’s the same air we’re breathing
The same tears run down our face
So I don’t have to leave where I stand
And I don’t have to change who I am
To count as a human
Feel my pulse

With your hand on my heart
You know it beats just as hard as yours
Feel my pulse
Feel my pulse
Can’t you see that im scarred
I’m just the same as you are so just
Feel my pulse

THE GALLERY …. “Faces humanize the Names …. Hits Home”!!

SAY THEIR NAMES

It’s been three days since the tragedy in Orlando.

It feels like an eternity.

It feels life is passing by in slow motion.

I thank the Human Rights Campaign for preparing the graphics included below.

As information poored in, as the investigation continues, the victim list was released.

Slowly we learned their names.

Now we see the face that goes with each name.

It’s a possibility that the number may increase since there are several critical victims in local hospitals.

Take a look.

These are human beings no different than any of us.

They all bled red.

They all had lives, dreams, hope, vitality, jobs, an full life ahead of them, family and friends.

How different are they from anyone?

Their sexuality?

Take that factor away …. what do you see?

I urge you, dare you, to look at each graphic, read each tibit of personal information.

I assure you, your heart will skip a beat.

There will always be haters.

There will always be bigots.

There will always be shameless politicians.

But Faces humanize the Names …. it hits home.

We ALL are ONE!!
