It's clear that more and more Americans are "Ready to Believe" and we dedicate this song to them. We believe it captures the spirit of hope and change that the Obama campaign represents at the same time it takes aim at those lame attacks from the other side.
Here's a little background on how this song came to be. Incredibly, on the day that the current "You Tube" sensation "Yes We Can" was released, we were in a mixing studio putting in the final changes on our song, which we were also calling "Yes We Can." We decided to change the title to avoid confusion, and now it's known as "Ready to Believe," a title which, the longer we sit with it, the more appropriate it feels.
"Ready to Believe" is composed and sung by Cherish Alexander, lyrics by Jackie Zabel and Bryce Zabel, and produced by Damian Valentine and Cherish Alexander. At the time they wrote the lyrics, just days before the California primary, Bryce & Jackie were striking screenwriters. Cherish is a popular and established alt.rocker in the LA scene with a powerful voice and a passion to make the world a better place. Bryce and Cherish had worked together previously when, as executive producer of the TV series, "The Crow: Stairway to Heaven," he collaborated with Cherish to create some original music for multiple episodes.
Please enjoy "Ready to Believe" and help the world hear it at this important and critical time. If you have friends in Wisconsin, Hawaii, Texas, Ohio, Pennsylvania and all the other states about to vote, please send it to them now.
READY TO BELIEVE
I'm ready to believe No more people who deceive It's his time to take the stage It's our time to turn the page I don't want to be feeling sad I don't want to be feeling bad Give us one good man Who says yes Yes we can
They say he must wait his turn They say too much to learn They say he should stand in line It's their plan, not mine
CHORUS (I'm ready to believe...)
They say it's a fairy tale They say rolling dice can only fail They say it will fall apart He alone speaks from my heart
Can we see the future and not the past? Yes we can Can we come together and make a change? Yes we can Can we really believe again? Yes we can
We say, now is the time We say, this is the plan We say, it takes one good man
