Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

Somewhere Up Above Me

This song was created for Game of Bands round 117 : "Song from a Fictional Broadway Musical"


I’ve spent all these years stuck here in this bunker
I’ve been stuck here all my life time
And in all this time there’s been just one vision
And it’s been my only lifeline

In this place of drabness
Void of joy and sunshine,

And I know that somewhere not too far above me
There’s a whole new world just waiting
And to think that I have spent my whole life
Doing nothing but an-tic-i-pa-ting

Ain’t much entertainment
Born so deep down under
Just the same old people
Ev’ry day I wonder

What’s the world up there like,
Since the devastation?
When will we be told to
Start the reclamation?

Up on the surface there will surely be danger
But here below it’s only tedium
And I know that between safety or adventure
There can be no happy medium

I can feel the answer
Surging up within me
We must take our chances
Pioneers we will be


What was once so desecrated
Soon will be rejuvenated
In a world that’s filled with laughter
Built to last forever after

In my bones I feel this
Restless, thrilling humming
All we need’s the signal
Some day soon it’s coming
Can you hear the drumming of my heart?
