Earth Hour Theme Song

Tasked by WWF Philippines to write a theme song for Earth Hour, a yearly campaign that encourages everyone to save energy for climate change. Special thanks to Percival (who agreed to do it in super short notice), the talented Ninna Juan Del Mundo, Jo Igancio of WWF, Roy del Valle and Noisy Neighbors, Mark Limchoa, Mr. Lorenzo Tan and the WWF team.

If We Try
©2010 Reev Robledo

Change starts with me
I want to be whatever it takes to show
That I care more than myself
I have been aware of what’s going on
Far too long, I’ve come and gone
It’s time to right a wrong

Chorus:
We can make this world much better
We can do it if we give it a try
`Cause we’re in this thing together, you and I
We can be the difference
If we only try

Go and make it known
Enough with the words
You’re better seen than just heard
Carrying faith, hope and love
Search within your heart
I will play my part
Keep moving `til we’re there

Chorus

Against our fate, we make a stand
I speak of truth, a simple plan
To show the world that we really care
The time is now
The waiting stops here
For this hour at night, turn off your light—
A symbol that I can change on the inside

Chorus
