Imagine MKE Songwriting Challenge

we are very excited to be kicking off the ImagineMKE Songwriting Challenge in support of the Artist Relief Fund! to help support Milwaukee’s artists and creators, Imagine MKE is raising money for a MKE Artist Relief Fund that will benefit local artists who have experienced a financial loss due to cancelled live events, performances, or engagements.

the three members of Before Nitrogen are taking part by donating $10 each and sharing this brand-new song to raise awareness for the cause. we encourage all who are able to donate to do so here: bit.ly/HelpMKEArtists, and we encourage our fellow artists to take part in the challenge and create a work for this cause! we are all in this together, and we will make it through this together. Hope is Not Lost.

Emma Mertens was an 8-year-old girl from Hartland, WI, who was diagnosed with a DIPG brain tumor in early 2019. she fought to live her life to the fullest every day up until the night she passed away on november 17th, 2019.​

Emma had a passion for animals, especially dogs. on her 8th birthday, the EmmaLovesDogs Foundation was launched to provide financial assistance to organizations in need that share the same passion for helping animals that Emma had.

lyrics:

i’m getting too old for this, i swear
sometimes i wonder why i still bother to care
i should know i’m destined to go through this life all alone

when i was younger, i thought by now
i’d have everything i’d ever want in this world for me
but to my disappointment i’ve been thinking i was closer
to that back when i still believed those things
oh, but you, maybe you could change that for me

i’ll see you in the spring, tell me that you’ll wait for me
like robins flying north i’ll be running to your door
i’ll sing your favorite song, watch the frozen forest thaw
all these years that it’s been dry, but with you on my side
my sky won’t stop raining in all the right ways
i used to wander the valleys alone
and now i’ll race you through the Floodplains

they say that good things, they come
to those willing to wait for ‘em
but patience ain’t never been something i had that much strength in

when i was younger, i thought I’d be
top of the whole world by the time i turned 18
oh, but you, maybe you’re headed the same way

i’ll see you in the spring, tell me that you’ll wait for me
like robins flying north i’ll be running to your door
i’ll sing your favorite song, watch the frozen forest thaw
all these years that it’s been dry, but with you on my side
my sky won’t stop raining in all the right ways
i used to wander the valleys alone
and now i’ll race you through the Floodplains

i’ll see you in the spring, tell me that you’ll wait for me
like robins flying north i’ll be running to your door
i’ll sing your favorite song, watch the frozen forest thaw
all these years that it’s been dry, but with you on my side
my sky won’t stop raining in all the right ways
i used to wander the valleys alone
and now i’ll race you through the Floodplains
