Brandon Parsons was nervous when he got back to work

The 32-year-old York musician performs at the dueling piano bar Howl at the Moon in Baltimore. Parsons knew it could get noisy, but he still jumped at every loud sound. He was scared. It was his first shift after 49 people were shot and killed June 12 at an Orlando nightclub.

“It’s a scary thought that gay people don’t have a lot of outlets to feel safe,” said Parsons, who is also gay. “I feel that they were somewhere they could let their guard down and have a good time … and this happening is such a huge blow to the community.”

Parsons said he gave to relief groups after the shooting, but he still needed to work through the event himself.

That’s what led him to write “Forty-Nine Times.”

Vs.1
When the night has fallen
And our smiles quickly fade
When the love we held so close
Was instantly torn away
When the lights are flashing
And the tears begin to fall
When we wait for all the sounds
To finally go away from us all

Pre-Chorus
But in the blink of an eye
Our hearts slowly died
As we felt our pulse
49 times

Chorus:
We will never hide, we will never run
Stand strong and always fight
Break free and always love
Don’t lose sight of who we are
We will never break, we will never die
We were made for more than just tonight
Takes more than just a gun
More than you to tear us down
So let your colors fly free
We Are Forever strong
We are forever

Vs.2
When your dreams were quickly shattered
When you were not prepared to fight
When you were safe inside the shadows
And you were dancing through the night
When every moment feels like hours
And all the shots rang out again
When our lives are held for ransom
As he holds it in his hands

Pre-Chorus
And in the blink of an eye
Our hearts slowly died
As we felt our pulse
49 times

Chorus:
We will never hide, we will never run
Stand strong and always fight
Break free and always love
Don’t lose sight of who we are
We will never break, we will never die
We were made for more than just tonight
Takes more than just a gun
More than you to tear us down
So let your colors fly free
We are forever strong

Orlando
We are, we are, Orlando
We are Orlando strong

So in the blink of an eye
Our hearts slowly died
As we felt our pulse
49
49 times
