Ten years ago we played our first set
We were singing for just family and our friends
And our hearts beat with the rush that comes from a cheering crowd
We were younger then
Who could know that then

We’d rise at dawn for early shows
Praying backstage before we go
Cry together tears of joy and hope
Who knows where this goes
We just hope you come along

We find our way
Led by the light of those eight nights and days
Singing to Al Hanissim
And we bless the days each year
Thankful we got here
Beautiful memories lighting the candles on the sill

A week in deep dark winter’s when we celebrate
Shining bright on the shortest days with the ones that we love
Don’t know what we did to deserve this light
Hoping we learn to use it right
But we were younger then
Take us back to when

We found our voice despite our fears
Through ups and downs over the years
We never dreamed of being here for so long
And as we grow
We just hope you come along

We find our way
Led by the light of those eight nights and days
Singing to al hanissim
And we bless the days each year
Thankful we got here
Beautiful memories lighting the candles on the sill

One for teachers of song
Two for those who sing along
Three for new friends who share
Four for old friends that care
Five for partners by our side
Six for sources of our pride
Seven for those who raised us and eight
Can’t wait to go home
