Inspiration behind the song
“I lost my aunt to Covid, none of our family were able to say goodbye to her. As a songwriter, I struggled to put
words to songs and one day the words just came while I was using my computer. The words were like raindrops
bouncing on my head which eventually caused me to be in floods of tears. Although I reflect on the grief journey, there is hope in the song with words such as”. “I’m learning to live again” “Grief won’t destroy me” and “Feel the depth of emotion with a remix that beautifully weaves sorrow and sound into a beacon of brighter days ahead”. – Sandra Godley OBE
