  • "In this time of fear and uncertainty during COVID-19, our hearts go out to those who are sick, their families, caregivers as well as all the frontline healthcare workers in Singapore giving their utmost best to help the patients and keep strong." - Fairfield Methodist School (Primary)

    Students from Fairfield Methodist School (Primary) would like to show their gratitude to all the healthcare workers in NUH working on the frontline. Apart from preparing cards and writing personal messages of appreciation, one student, Jacob Neo (Primary 6B), composed a song entitled, “Singapore, Unite as One!”. Despite not having any formal music education outside school, and only having his first try in songwriting in 2019 as part of his learning in the General Music Programme (GMP), he wrote both melody and lyrics in two days!

    Here are the lyrics:

    Singapore, Unite as One
    [VERSE 1]

    You're shut away,
    you're isolated
    Cut off,
    from civilisation
    All alone,
    with your hopes and dreams
    Shattered,
    no longer free

    [PRE-CHORUS]

    But I want you to know that
    you're not alone
    And I want you to feel that
    you are at home

    [CHORUS]

    And the night looms the sun goes down
    Day bleeds and light’s just a memory (memory)
    The ‘crowns’ are invading us what can we do
    This is agony… Yeah!

    But we’ll be together through thick and the thin
    As one country we’ll fight this virus and win
    We’ll fight with our hearts and our minds and our souls
    Protecting this island where we call our home

    [VERSE 2]

    Fearful,
    yet advancing
    Fulfilling,
    your duty and call
    Knowing,
    that there’s a purpose
    Press on,
    stand firm for all

    [PRE-CHORUS]

    But I want you to know that
    you're not alone
    And I want you to feel that
    you are at home

    [CHORUS]

    And the night looms the sun goes down
    Day bleeds and light’s just a memory (memory)
    The ‘crowns’ are invading us what can we do
    This is agony… Yeah!

    But we’ll be together through thick and the thin
    As one country we’ll fight this virus and win
    We’ll fight with our hearts and our minds and our souls
    Protecting this island where we call our home

    [BRIDGE]

    Singapore, we’ll stay together
    Singapore, the time has come
    Singapore, we’ll fight forever
    Singapore, Unite as One!

    Singapore, we’ll stay together
    Singapore, the time has come
    Singapore, we’ll fight forever
    Singapore, Unite as One!

    [CHORUS]

    And the night looms the sun goes down
    Day bleeds and light’s just a memory (memory)
    The ‘crowns’ are invading us what can we do
    This is agony… Yeah!

    But we’ll be together through thick and the thin
    As one country we’ll fight this virus and win
    We’ll fight with our hearts and our minds and our souls
    Protecting this island where we call our home
