Can't Press Reset - Francine Honey

Can’t Press Reset… A song of courage, transformation and change.

Official Music Video: Oct. 23, 2020

Single Release: Oct. 23, 2020
From the album: Unfinished Business (2021)

I had all kinds of dreams and plans for what would happen in 2020, the year I was supposed to retire. And like all of us, those goals were instantly dashed when the world, the whole year and all our plans went down the tubes as chronicled in this gently chugging straight-up Americana folk-rocker of a tune “Can’t Press Reset.”

It is a song that speaks of the transformation that is required when more than just a simple fix is needed. Whether it is dealing with a world-wide pandemic, systemic racism, or with situations in your own life where you feel trapped and/or unable to breathe. It is a song that has lyrics with many layers if you are willing to dig down deep into the issues that lie ahead. This requires fearlessness to answer the question of what comes next?

Song Lyrics

Can’t Press Reset
Francine Honey (SOCAN)

1.2020 started out fine, Had a clear vision in my mind
Was gonna get things done, travel to France
Spend time with my friends, I had all kinds of plans 

2. Then 2020, went down the tubes
Stuck at home watching the news
Cause we’re in lockdown, everyone’s in masks
There’s fires in the streets and the world’s gone mad

We can’t just press reset
When the world doesn’t make sense
We need more love and respect
Cause we’re fighting a disease
Where people cannot breathe
We can’t just press reset.  NO!
There’s no reset


3. I’m the one, always looking for rainbows
But things seem so out of control
It’s a full time job, changing my thoughts
When I see the faces, of those we’ve lost

Repeat Chorus

The world is a fragile place
and we have big problems to solve
I believe that we can
if we work together as ONE human race!

Repeat Chorus

We need to ask!
What comes next?
