about

Amanda Abizaid is an American Lebanese Singer, Songwriter best known as the vocalist on the theme song “A Place In Time” from Paramount’s The 4400. Amanda's new EP "Walking In Twos" features the legendary Stephen Stills and the Aeta indigenous children from Haduan Village in the Philippines. The project’s goal is to create a self-sufficient revenue stream using profits from the song's downloads and streams to buy school supplies for the Aeta children of the Philippines. The song was inspired by Amanda's experiences with the Aeta children in Haduan Village when she was abroad in 2015. "I shook hands with every child and they told me their names. This is how the magic of this song began." The village of Haduan is situated in the Southeastern foothills of the Pinatubo Volcano Range, across the Secovia Lahar River Basin. Visiting the village requires walking a few miles through rugged dirt paths, crossing a wide river, and a tropical wet dirt hike through the mountains. "When I arrived at their village, I entered their little stone classroom and soon began singing to my acoustic guitar the instrumental of 'Walking In Twos' walking in between the tables and chairs. They smiled and their eyes lit up. In their indigenous language, they yelled out how much they loved the melody, clapping joyfully and asked what it meant. That's when I knew I was on to something special." A project from the heart, Amanda hopes her contribution to the betterment of society inspires and encourages her fans to respect and value all cultures through their shared love of music. "This is my mission."

lyrics

VERSE
THE TIME HAS COME WHEN ENOUGH IS ENOUGH AND HEALING IS WHAT WE NEED TO START
LIFE IS FRAGILE SO WE GOTTA GET TOUGH
AND LIVE OUR LIVES WITH AN OPEN HEART VERSE
WE’RE ALL HUMAN THIS IS THE TRUTH
WE CAN ALL FIND REASONS TO HATE
BUT WE CAN’T EXPECT OUR YOUTH TO MAKE CHANGES THAT WE DON’T HELP CREATE
CHORUS (CHILDREN SING)
WE CAN SAVE THE WORLD WITH A SMILE WE CAN LOVE THE WORLD LIKE A CHILD STEP IN SOMEONE ELSES SHOES
LET THE MAGIC BEGIN WALKING IN TWOS
VERSE
YESTERDAY’S GONE SOMETIMES A SAD MEMORY SO SAY WHAT YOU MEAN TODAY WITH LOVE HELP US TO LEARN HOW TO ACT WITH EMPATHY HAPPINESS IS WHAT WE’RE ALL IN SEARCH OF CHORUS (CHILDREN SING)
WE CAN SAVE THE WORLD WITH A SMILE WE CAN LOVE THE WORLD LIKE A CHILD STEP IN SOMEONE ELSES SHOES
LET THE MAGIC BEGIN WALKING IN
BIG DRUM SECTION WITH RAP LYRIC I GOT THE POWER......
BRIDGE 2X
WE CAN CHANGE WHAT'S GOING ON
AND LEARN HOW TO TRUST
IF WE LEAN ON EACHOTHER
STAND UNITED ALL OF US
NOTE KEY CHANGE
CHORUS (CHILDREN SING)
WE CAN SAVE THE WORLD WITH A SMILE WE CAN LOVE THE WORLD LIKE A CHILD STEP IN SOMEONE ELSES SHOES
LET THE MAGIC BEGIN WALKING IN TWOS WE CAN SAVE THE WORLD WITH A SMILE WE CAN LOVE THE WORLD LIKE A CHILD STEP IN SOMEONE ELSES SHOES
LET THE MAGIC BEGIN WALKING IN TWOS LET THE MAGIC BEGIN WALKING IN TWOS LET THE MAGIC BEGIN WITH ME AND YOU LET THE MAGIC BEGIN WITH ME AND YOU
