about

This song was written for the inauguration of David Szczerbacki the 9th president at The College of Saint Rose.

lyrics

Walk with me through the city
and remember what it used to be.
Back when seven sisters shared
One thousand dollars and a dream.

Can we as a nation put value on the life of a mind?
and ignore the price we pay to find ourselves within these lines?

'Cause life is always changing
Sometimes we lose sight
But if we fall out of focus
Who will guide us towards the light?

"Passion, Knowledge and Purpose"
Surround these walls like a skin
We've created a growing momentum
That is constantly spinning.

Can we as a nation put value on the life of a mind?
and ignore the price we pay to find ourselves within these lines?

'Cause life is always changing
Sometimes we lose sight
But if we fall out of focus
Who will guide us towards the light?

A man with vision stands before us
To carry on a legacy
In a new and different way
He'll show us what we cannot see.

'Cause life is always changing
Sometimes we lose sight
But if we fall out of focus
Who will guide us towards the light?

So we will come together on this joyous day.
To welcome change.
To celebrate!

'Cause life is always changing
Sometimes we lose sight
But if we fall out of focus
Who will guide us towards the light?
