Find My Life

Post by Abigail G. on Tue Feb 03, 2009 11:59 pm

Okay, kind of a rough draft of a recent song I wrote...

Find My Life

Author of my life
Meet with me tonight
Show me what You've planned for me
What do You want me to be?
You're the great I AM
But here I stand on shifting sand
Wondering if there's more to life than this

Chorus:
'Cause I've been searching
For all the wrong things to satisfy
My soul
But I've been finding
That there is nothing good enough but You
'Cause You meant for me to find my life in You
And You alone

Rock of certainty
I don't know how I could think
That I could find my life and find my rest
In this world's pools of emptiness
Judge of all mankind
Do I long for truth or lies?
Pushing past the heavy darkness into light

Chorus

King of majesty
I wish I had clearly seen
That the world has nothing it can offer
The work You've done for me is stronger
Source of all my good
If there's one thing You would
Do for me it's giving me Yourself

Chorus

Bridge:
Significance, security
Sustanence, life with meaning
All these things You offer perfectly
Why need I look elsewhere?

Chorus

Wow! That is awsome! That would be really cool to make music to go with! It all blends togather so nicely!

Just wondering do songs like this take you along to write? Or does it just all the sudenly come to you like that?

Dude! That rocks! Have you ever heard "Satisfy Me" by DecembeRadio? It's a GREAT tune! Smile Keep up the good work! I write songs, but they're mostly funk tunes with an edge ;-) Good to see someone writing the songs that I have no skill writing Smile Somehow, all my songs end up being evangelistic... bizaro...

Hey, man, evangelistic songs are great! Haven't heard that one...Have you heard Jesus Loves You by Stellar Kart? That is a great song!
Brian, I have almost all the chords down...i think it sounds too sad, though.lol
Usually when I get the inspiration for a song, I get a few lines all of a sudden and I have to write them down fast before I forget them, then I will have to work on the rest for a few weeks...this song was a little bit different though because when I first felt inspired I got a whole verse and most of the chorus! That was weird...lol
I just found a quote online that pertained to this topic: "God cannot give us happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing." C.S. Lewis
Thanks for all the encouragement! Cool

when I write songs I just start with a line and leave it and think about it in my spare time and by the end of the day I have tons of ideas!

No, I've not heard that tune... I'm kind of picky about music. :/ I write all my tunes in one sitting, I have no clue why. I play them over and over and over and over and over and over and over again while I sing and try out new phrases to express what I'm feeling... Interesting to see how different people write different kinds of songs. Smile Pretty bizarro... Who knows, I'm thinking of doing some solo recordings. If I do, I'll post it in songs or something...

I write a lot of my songs in my head, but I never write them down. Except for a few classical works.
