Through the Spectrum was written for my 9-year old Godson who has Autism. His mother, my longtime good friend, was going through an awful divorce where she was forcefully and unwillingly separated from her son. I couldn’t sleep over the situation imagining what they both were going through. I thought especially about all my friend did to help her son flourish with his disorder and how special he is. He has such a gentle and caring soul and sees the world in a beautiful way. I wrote ‘Through the Spectrum’ through his eyes.

Through the Spectrum was part of the 2015 National Autism Conference ceremonies. Donations have been made to Arts for Autism Foundation of Pittsburgh, The Joey Travolta Film Camp for Autistic Kids and Parents in Toto Autism Resource Center. We are still searching for a charity partner in support of ‘Through the Spectrum’ and the Give Voice project so we may donate digital record sales proceeds to them.

THROUGH A SPECTRUM

VERSE 1:
When I was 2 years old
They couldn’t figure out what was wrong with me
You talked to every doctor you could
Tried to help me
You opened the door
When the world shut me out
You showed me how I
Didn’t need to be more
You turned on the light
And taught me to smile
I just see things a different way

CHORUS:
I CAN SEE THE WORLD THROUGH A SPECTRUM
EVERYWHERE A RAINBOW LIKE AN ANTHEM
WHEN THEY TRY TO SEE THROUGH MY POINT OF VIEW
THAT’S WHEN THEY WILL SEE THE COLORS TOO

VERSE 2:
They tried to take you from me
Policeman said it was for my safety
They believed my daddy’s lies
Tried to hurt me
When you’re the only one who knows me
A mother’s love is what showed me

CHORUS:
I CAN SEE THE WORLD THROUGH A SPECTRUM
EVERYWHERE A RAINBOW LIKE AN ANTHEM
WHEN THEY TRY TO SEE THROUGH MY POINT OF VIEW
THAT’S WHEN THEY WILL SEE THE COLORS TOO

BRIDGE:
And I see everyone is beautiful
I feel the pain inside your heart
I see everything is luminal
Like a band of colors

CHORUS:
I CAN SEE THE WORLD THROUGH A SPECTRUM
EVERYWHERE A RAINBOW LIKE AN ANTHEM
WHEN THEY TRY TO SEE THROUGH MY POINT OF VIEW
THAT’S WHEN THEY WILL SEE THE COLORS TOO
THROUGH A SPECTRUM
