Henry Sidle There's a Way

Henry Sidle has a new tune for Rex!

We’re delighted to report a particularly great upcoming convergence of benevolent forces at Gathering of the Vibes on Friday, July 20, 2012, when, after an introduction from David Gans, Henry Sidle takes to the Green Vibes Stage at 3:45 p.m. and premieres his new song, “There’s a Way,” inspired by the Rex Foundation’s The World As It Could Be Human Rights Education Program.

You’ll recall that last year, as part of his community service work for his bar mitzvah, young Henry became intrigued with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and  Rex’s work to spread awareness and understanding of its principles in real life. He wrote a song, The World As It Could Be, and unveiled it to an appreciative Vibe Tribe.

Since then, Henry’s continued to take a strong interest, and drew inspiration for a new song from a past dramatic production, The World As It Could Be: Where There’s a Will There’s a Way.

Says Rex Foundation Executive Director Sandy Sohcot: “Henry has deepened his involvement with The World As It Could Be, exploring our Programmatic work about what it means to exert the will to make a positive difference.  He has composed the song There’s A Way with lyrics that truly hearten one’s spirits and compel action.

“I want to thank Henry for all of his outstanding work done with such depth of thought.  How great is it to have the next generation carry on the spirit of Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead by demonstrating the power of music and care for the community to generate such positive vibes!”

Listen to the song:

There’s a Way Mp3

There’s a Way

By Henry Sidle

A passion stirring in you and you don’t know what to do.
You feel as helpless as a caged tiger in a zoo.
Sometimes we all feel down, sometimes we all feel blue.
This world needs changing and it all comes down to you.

Some say they want equality, yet don’t act it on their own
Some complain ’bout politicians, but instead of voting stay at home
If you hope for change it won’t happen in a day
’Cause hey hey hey, where there’s a will, there’s a way

Hey Hey! Where there’s a will, there’s a way.
My brothers and sisters it’s gonna be okay
Keep taking small steps, even if times get grey
’Cause when you have the will, there’s always a way

Don’t give up or go away

You need the motivation to get farther down the road
Be the change you want to see
Even if it’s a heavy load

You may not be the eyes of the world, but you still can see
Too many people suffering ’round you and me

Hey Hey! Where there’s a will, there’s a way.
My brothers and sisters it’s gonna be okay
Keep taking small steps, even if times get grey
’Cause when you have the will, there’s always a way
