A Small Difference

A Small Difference is a collaboration with Hammond organ guru Tim Neal.

The song began as an idea to write something with a positive and uplifting message for a school choir 

Recently, Warde set out to finish writing and recording the song. He then began to involve Tim Neal on Hammond Organ (recorded in Ocean Grove), Ian Kitney on drums (recorded in Japan), Shannon Bourne on electric guitar (recorded in Melbourne). 

Tim is an exceptional talent specialising on Hammond Organ, Piano and Saxophone.   

Tim has toured extensively and played at many festivals, both in Australia and overseas and has shared stages and studios with many Australian and International acts including, Mavis Staples, Ricky Lee Jones, Archie Roach, Paul Kelly, Shane Howard, Chris Wilson, Ross Wilson, Renee Geyer, Mick Thomas, Xavier Rudd, John Butler Trio and many more.

The song is available on iTunes, Spotify and all the other usual online stores

A Small Difference (lyrics)
Be Hungry, but not greedy 
Chase your dreams but don’t tread on the needy 
We all need to see how 
This world’s not just for us but for many more to come now 

If we all make a small difference and change the world a little for the better 
We’ll change the world a lot 

Be thoughtful 
Be Kind, don’t let others get left behind 
Be Brave, put out your hand 
reach out to someone who never had the same chance 

If we all make a small dierence and change the world a little for the better 
We’ll change the world a lot 

Open your heart 
A gentle smile could be a small part of a better day, a better time 
A better world we all leave behind
