What is the feeling behind your song and how does it link to climate change?

The song is observing how nature’s strength prevailed during lockdown. The peace and quiet, when cars and aeroplanes stopped their constant hum. It is about how farming and growing our own food is so important to our wellbeing and survival. It is about how we can change our behaviour drastically and quickly in a time of crisis and that is what we should be doing for the planet.
