never tried this before.

Okay, I came home tonight from band practice with a song on my heart. It is in a pretty rough stage... A. because, well, I just wrote it 30 minutes ago... B. I don't play guitar nearly as much as I should OR used to... C. it's recorded on a point and shoot camera...and D. well, I guess telling people that it is a rough stage means that people are nicer with their critiques?

The reason I write songs is really for an outlet. I love singing, and music, and it seems natural that given that, I would express myself in song. I have written a lot of songs...and may one day put on here a song I have shared in verse only. But for tonight, here is the rough song I am working on:



Lyrics:
We give our lives to too many things
Searching for answers to our needs
We lay them down
I lay them down

For the beauty of the mystery of you
The purpose of a lifetime
More than I can do
You're the hope for my future
Beyond all I can dream
Jesus
I need you

We settle for what's left over
Not knowing that the best's within reach
We let it go
Oh I let it go

For the beauty of the mystery of you
The purpose of a lifetime
More than I can do
You're the hope for my future
Beyond all I can dream
Jesus
I need you (x3)
