I wrote this track with Helen Meissner aka Helefonix, my wife. I hope you find it inspiring!
This is what Chris West said on air after playing it "You've basically written a 21st century response to Les Mis. And I mean that in the most complementary way possible. That is a piece of classic songwriting, yet it's very, definitely an individual, unique, newly composed piece, but it just feels like it belongs in Les Mis. I don't know. I'm probably going to be slated by every musical head on the planet for saying that, but it just belongs in some really powerful production of something I'm sure.

The Time has come. New music from Joe Rose, the first original music that Joe Rose ever written. And my word, if that is a first writing effort, is the world ready for the next one. Such passion, power and anthemic drive in that song.

I feel like I need to go out and do something more important

Wow. I feel inspired to go out and make things happen".

Joe Rose – The Time Has Come
Words and music by Joe Rose and Helen Meissner. Arrangement by Helen Meissner. 31st Oct 2021

The time has come at last
To Sit and think
The times my judgement’s failed
I sit and weep

Oh time can cure all things
So they say
But I’m not sure my life
Was made that way

Regrets they come so fast
It’s time to lose the past
And love my life as it is
It was meant to be

Regrets they come and go
It’s time to take control
It’s time to live my life
As it’s meant to be
