THE NEW RECONNECTING SONG Lyrics

In this time of separation
Meeting up is incorrect
We are out of stimulation
We just want to reconnect

It´s a time of desperation
Feeling lonely and so sad
All we want is conversation
Like the way we always had

Here we sit in our small rooms
Seeing people far away
We are looking into web-zooms
Quarantined through the days

Now let´s work for reparation
It is time to find a space
Where we rebuild our relations
Meeting, laughing, face-to-face

So let´s act for more compassion
Let us act for loving more
Staying close is our action
That is what we´re fighting for

In this time of separation
Meeting up is incorrect
We are out of stimulation
We just want to reconnect

We just want to reconnect
We just want to reconnect

We are leaving separation
Meeting up is now correct
We are full of stimulation
And enjoy to reconnect

Values Day we`re celebrating
We are here to reconnect
For a hug we have been waiting
And to truly reconnect

Let us go for close connections
Let us hug and kiss again
We will show our deep affection
We will reconnect again

In a time of disconnection
Let us meet in sun and rain
Let us fight for reconnection
Build a world which will sustain

Build a world which will sustain

Thomas Ekbom
