Here is what Matt had to say as he released: More Than Words Can Say!

Nearly 2 years ago while performing on the street in Mexico I was asked by now good friend Rick Ouellet if I would consider writing a song for his website. Rick is a retired Military Police Officer who knows first hand the challenges associated with being a First Responder. Rick has dedicated much of his time and passion to the subject by starting his website, which is one of the first of its kind in North America. The site is dedicated to connecting Military Personnel and First Responders with service providers willing to give back to our friends, family and neighbour's who have been and who are currently on the front lines. I am proud to announce the release of "More Than Words Can Say", a moving tribute to our Troops, Veterans and First Responders. Proceeds from the download of this song will go directly to supporting mental health programs and the treatment of PTSD. Please consider making a donation by means of a download to support this important cause and to give back to those who have made so many sacrifices for us. This has been an amazing creative process and would not have been possible without the help and talents of my friends and fellow musicians Mark Agnew, Paul Stouffer and Steve Reise. Special thanks to Rick Ouellet for his vision, dedication and passion for making a difference.
Lyrics to:
 
More Than Words Can Say
 

Neon lights are bright tonight, 
He’s got whiskey on his breath. 
He did his time out on the front line, 
He came back a mess. 
He fought for freedom, he fought for peace 
Now time cannot erase 
The things he’s seen, the places he’s been, 
The lines upon his face. 

It’s 3:00M, up again, 
They race out of the hall. 
Hearts are thumping, blood is pumping, 
Together so none may fall. 
Standing strong they fend the flames 
That rise in to the dark black night. 
There will be no loss of life tonight 
Just pride among those in this firefight. 

To all those among us, who stand brave and tall. 
Who fight for what’s right and catch us when we fall. 
We may not understand the price that you must pay 
But we do thank you all, 
More than words can say! 

In the heart of the city, under cover of the night 
From the darkness shines a light 
A thin blue line, ever so bright. 
Our lives together would ignite 
Without the badge and the gun 
We need the brave to lead the way, 
The war has not been won. 

There are lives in the balance 
Will they live to tell the tale. 
Just a few short breathes between life and death 
The clock is ticking as the sirens wail. 
They treat with dignity all they face, 
Blind to age, sex and race. 
In a world full of strife 
They fight to save every life. 

To all those among us, who stand brave and tall. 
Who fight for what’s right and catch us when we fall. 
We may not understand the price that you must pay 
But we do thank you all, 
More than words can say! 

To all the First Responders 
This one’s for you. 
To all the men and woman 
And all their families too. 
For all those sleepless nights 
And all that you go through 
A salute to your service 
For everything you do
