Life As We Knew It

by Elisa S. Keeler



This piece was written on March 19th 2020 during the world-wide pandemic. Death tolls were rising and the economy was crumbling. While acknowledging these devastating losses, Elisa sings of the blossoming love of family and friends amidst the most difficult of times.

Her 4 year old son Levi created the album art.


"Life As We Knew It"
by Elisa S. Keeler - 2020 Pandemic

Verse 1 :
Remember the way we ran around
Dictated by the ticking clock?
Rushing, stressing, had to be on time
Till it came to this brutal stop

Verse 2:
Hearts are broken and panic sets in
Who am I without my role?
Money was tight, now it slips through the cracks
We’re no longer in control

As we hold our families and we call our friends
Our love unfolds as life suspends
There's time together and there's time to pray
So much more than yesterday
Life, as we knew it...dissolved

Verse 3:
Death tolls rise, every country’s at risk
Masked in fear we stand alone
If we survive, we wont be the same
But our lives may bloom and grow


Verse 4:
All the world is a quiet mess
Every house has closed its door
Can’t go out, so we look inside
Radiant landscapes to explore
