Nothing Can Stop Us Now
Power and Greed
I was watching House of Cards in November of 2017 and fell in love with the idea of a couple who had both a public relationship and a behind the doors agreement of what their relationship really was. This song was written from the perspective of Frank talking to Claire. In 2018, when I decided the concept of my album was going to be political I knew this song was going to be included.
Listen for House of Cards homage in the chorus of the demo. We ultimately decided it wasn't worth keeping in the final edit.
Daily journal entry plus Nothing Can Stop Us verse idea and what ended up being the bridge.
Nothing Can Stop Us Now Lyrics
Imagine what the two of us could be baby
No one says the world is ours, so we make it so
Something neither of us could have seen but maybe,
The friends that we thought were ours are only foes
Imagine living without the pain of the two of us
Something both of us secretly kind of want
But who would be the one to turn the lights off at night
Who would be the one to end the lonely fight
Something kind, something cruel
What are we to do but
Look it in the eye and
Remember we’re just the fools
In a world where pain seeks us out and our foes seem to win
We stand together with the power that they can’t fend
In a world where trouble seeks us out
Nothing goes the way we want it to but nothing can stop us
Nothing can stop us now
Stuck in a place, we don’t know who to trust
I’ll still be there. Will you be there for me?
Imagine what the world could be for us baby
No one thinks it's ours, but we know it's true
Something that neither of us could have seen but maybe,
The ones who don’t know it will know it soon.
What do you think?
