about

Tom is from a small town in New Hampshire, where a freshman at his old high school (who had just started) had been in the hospital for months, diagnosed with brain tumors and was beginning chemo; her mom left her job to be by her side every day.
While singing this song at a house concert, Mr. Drew suggested Tom sing this song at a local fundraiser featuring a local band, during their intermission. Wicked Cool Music decided to kick it up a notch and work out a win-win scenario in which they could finish this one song in the studio and generate enough buzz to promote a 3D (digital download donation) sensation.
All proceeds will be used to pay for the family’s travel and living expenses; Tom Schena Music will collect these donations until April 30, 2012 or $100,000 (you never know!) or more according to Tom’s wishes.

Verse 1
I’ve always been a simpleminded melody
So run of the mill, that I nearly lost my mind
So caught up with what you might just think of me
That I found myself a future running blind
Chorus A
But you gotta have love
You gotta have understanding
You gotta believe, oh, in yourself
You gotta rise above
All of you that you have left abandoned
And never try to be too proud
That you will never be allowed
A little help
My brothers
A little help my sisters
A little help my friends
You see help is the one thing
That we all can do
To make this one world
A little better for me and you
Verse 2
I have learned my lessons, and I have seen the cost
Of beauty in this world that can never be lost
And I know my tomorrows they depend on me today
Just like the bluebird depends on the wind to fly away
Bridge/Verse3
I’ll just pray I’ll remember, what I need to say
When my eyes seem sullen, and my hair turns a shade of gray
I just hope I can keep my strength before the light of day takes me away
So far away
I pray
And I, Lord, I pray
Chorus B
I’ll pray you’ll find love
I’ll pray you’ll find understanding
Pray you’ll believe in yourself
That you will find a way to rise above
All that you have left abandoned
And never try to be too proud
That you will never be allowed
That you will never be allowed
A little help
My brothers
A little help my sisters
A little help my friends
See help is the one thing
That we all can do
To make this one world
A little better for me and you
