Can’t Press Reset… A song of courage, transformation and change.
As 2020 rolled on, we were not only dealing with our world being turned upside-down and forever changed by the global pandemic, my neighbours to the south in the America were in much political upheaval, globally there were protests for climate change, fires in the streets to combat racism and revolution. It became very clear that things will never go back to the way they were and nor should they.
I wrote and released the most political song I have ever written about my desire to remember that while we have differences, we are all ONE Human Race against a virus, against climate change and racism. I believe the entire world needs to work together with more love, kindness and respect to find a way forward. There is no reset.
I recorded this song in June with the band in Nashville coming out of the first wave and before a vaccine was known. It was filmed by Joshua Britt. I recorded my vocal from my studio in Leamington and recorded myself singing it. We released a live studio video with the single and it falls nicely after “Red Sky” as a call for action.

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
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!
We need to ask!
What comes next?
