about

Through support from Columbus Foundation and Autism speaks, four pilot inclusive songwriting experiences took place. We wanted to explore as many variables as possible and better understand the unique value for all students, family members, and teachers who participate in the Inclusive Songwriting Experiences.

Track Name: Memories Fade
When days seemed dark, you painted them a brighter shade of blue
You've stayed in the back of my mind, and I'll never forget you
We took time for granted, we thought we owned it all
We never really knew how much we had, and I didn't think I'd watch you fall

Opportunities are gone in the blink of an eye
Even if our memories fade our love will never die
Opportunities are gone in the blink of an eye
Even if our memories fade our love will never die

The worst goodbyes often are the ones that are never said
I wish you were still here with me, and not just in my head
You'll never get to see the happy person I become
But I'm sure I'll make you proud of me before my days are done

Opportunities are gone in the blink of an eye
Even if our memories fade our love will never die
Opportunities are gone in the blink of an eye
Even if our memories fade our love will never die

Wishing you'd come back, is often how I feel
Seeing you again someday, would be so surreal
You lit me up in darkness, and when I fell apart,
You knew where to find them, the pieces of my heart

Opportunities are gone in the blink of an eye
Even if our memories fade our love will never die
Opportunities are gone in the blink of an eye
Even if our memories fade our love will never die
Track Name: Avoiding Reminders
I’m in the red zone
Trying my way back into the green
Sometimes I need a reminder
I might get angry but I won’t get mean

‘Cause I know it’s gonna be okay
I can do it all over again
Today is gonna be my day
To make it better than it’s ever been
And I won’t need a reminder
I won’t need a reminder

I’m saving my quarters
So I can do whatever I want to do
If I get frustrated
I can always think of something new
Track Name: Swimming
1, 2
1, 2, 3, 4

all the pirates on their boogie boards got no place to hide
I’m coming down a twisty swirly water powered ultra jet slide
I got my trunks on and I’m waiting in line
but I don’t care ‘cause I’ve gone down about a hundred times

we’re on the bus we’ve got to swim some sun
we’re passing up into a wave of fun
the ride is crazy and it’s got us spinning
but when we get there we’ll just keep on swimming

the ride is crazy and it’s got us spinning

I held my breath I passed the test I know I’ll never fall
I’m about to throw down on that game of water volleyball
splash wars are starting I can hear the call
somebody’s on the edge they’re yelling CANNONBALL!
