Really enjoyed writing this song with Tansay on the road,
and learnt loads from editing the video from footage
I had from Iran (my first attempt at editing a video!)
Still, put it out there...imperfect as it may be..

Think Before You Do (R.Arab, Tansay Omar)


To be what you are
To feel the world from other eyes

I wanna be a flower
Growing through the stone
And feel how they live

Wanna be a feather
Soaring on wings of peace
And see where we reach

To feel what you see
To hear what you think

Wanna ride back in time
With Gerard tramp of Nantes
And journey through his past

Wanna be the little town
When the clock strikes nine
And see how they sleep

To fly oh so high
To sense the world from skies above

Don’t wanna be an elephant
Waltz into your dinning room
And crush what you eat

Don’t wanna be a wasp
Cruise into your mind
And change how you think

Feel how they live - fear what you do
Feel how they live - fear what you do

Maybe if he knew the consequence
For the child sitting in darkened fear
He wouldn’t go so easily to war
Sewing seeds of hate for us to carry all

Think before you do
Walk in someone else’s shoes
Think before you do
Walk in someone else’s shoes.
