I made an inspiring song called "Free," working title "The Quarantine Song." It is uplifting and optimistic.

Watch and listen to Alexandra performing her song below.

Do you play guitar? Alexandra has shared her chords and lyrics so you can perform her song for yourselves - look just beneath the video.

Verse (D major-G major-A major) x 2
Heard the forecast on the radio, it's gonna rain and it will be cold,
I'm stuck inside binge watching shows, and eating food that's how it goes, I know.

Pre-chorus (G major-C^9)
But don't be to quick to give into the gloom,
You can still see people over Zoom, hello.
Turn off the TV, put down the phone, and tune into imagination of your own.

Chorus (A major-G major-E major-G major A major-G major-E major-G major)
Where no news is bad news, at least not for me,
'Cause my news is news that I wanna see.

Verse (D major-G major-A major) x 2
You called me up and said you were down,
I think we all wear a frown sometimes.
Just try to do what you love, you're not alone, just don't give up, heave ho.

Pre-chorus (G major-C^9)
Turn off the TV, put down the phone, and tune into imagination of your own.

Chorus (A major-G major-E major-G major A major-G major-E major-G major)
Where no news is bad news, at least not for me,
'Cause my news is news that I wanna see.
No news is bad news, not like on TV
'Cause I do what I like and being trapped I never felt more free . . .

End (A major G major x2) D major
No being trapped I never felt
Being trapped I felt
Being trapped I never felt more free.

  1. Hi, I would like to submit something to the Young Composers & Musicians section. I have both the sheet music I’ve created and the recording, and I want to submit both files. However, it only allows me to choose one file. What can I do? Thanks!

    • Hi Charis – thank you so much for pointing this out! I have fixed the form, and it should now allow you to upload multiple files.
