LYRICS

there’s a land of mystery
its always been there waiting for you and me
there’s a paradise in the heart of the city
you can hear the birds singing melodies…singing

this is where i belong
flowers bloom and rivers roam
this is my sacred home
in the forest is our song

open your heart, to what you feel
under the stars we have all that we need
open your heart, to what is real
´cause i don’t wanna say goodbye to you
macritchie, macritchie…

banded leaf cute monkey
crimson sunbird sing in the tree
malayan colugo glide so high
flying lizard in the sky
mr. pangolin looking at me
baby colugo and her mommy
i love you, you love me
singapura is so sweet

we got gold-ringed cat snake, lesser mousedeer
did you know we got a rainforest here
forest walking catfish, oh wow!
spotted tree frog right here right now!
we got musang and leopard cat
greater slow loris, naked bulldog bat
yellow-bellied puddle frog, big-eye whip snake
save macritchie before it’s too late!

open your heart, to what you feel ´
under the stars we have all that we need
open your heart, to what is real
cause I don´t wanna say goodbye to you, macritchie…

i don´t mind taking a longer ride on the MRT for macritchie…
we don´t mind  taking a longer ride on the MRT for macritchie…
i don´t mind taking a longer ride on the MRT for macritchie…

“LOVE OUR MACRITCHIE FOREST” – The Song

A beautiful and poignant song, sung by Children of Singapore and Lysa Aya, in support of a campaign to protect Singapore’s natural heritage. Written by Lysa Aya (singer and songwriter with Singaporean roots) and Itaal Shur (Grammy award winning composer and musician)

“LOVE OUR MACRITCHIE FOREST” – The Music Video

This music video is part of a campaign to raise awareness for a precious primeval forest in the heart of urban Singapore. MacRitchie Forest, within the Central Catchment Nature Reserve, holds the largest stand of primary forest in Singapore, and is refuge for many native plants, invertebrate and vertebrate species. Some species are known nowhere else in Singapore. As such, these species may be lost from Singapore if the forest is disturbed. The environmental music project is co-produced by Teresa Teo Guttensohn and Vilma D’Rozario in Singapore, and by Lysa Aya in NYC, USA (Jun 2013 to Feb 2014).
