wednesday wallop # 23 my paradise

there must be some kind of relationship between the songs I end up wanting to do, and the thing I said or did the week before…as I look over the weeks there seems to be an almost pendulum like swing in styles and directions…don’t you think? It might be hard for you to say – you did not hear the accordian piece I started…yep – accordian…sadly, that song has been set aside for two reasons…1) I want to use a live accordian and I don’t have one, and 2) I might bring an accordian player if I can find one, do you play? It is a matter of routine lately that I start one song, and then go somewhere else. Anyway – this weeks wallop is called “my paradise”. The original idea actually is from a song I wrote years ago – but this approach is much different. We have some choral stuff, some stacked harmonies, some of this, and a little of that…a lot of that actually, and while I’m talking about that – getting the birds to cooperate from the bridge out was probably one of the most difficult aspects of the song. I am putting the lyrics here too. Click arrow to listen

my paradise

something in me gets me fired up
giving me a chance to see yeah
see through all the lies and hate oh all that misery

something in me brings me to my knees
making my spirit breathe yeah
closer to my Lord
to the King of Kings

I’m down low lifted high
help me Lord see with your eyes
set me free from my sin
and any place that you aren’t in
to my Lord I aspire
burning with a holy fire

bring me to my paradise

I’m so lost without you Lord
this worlds making its claim on me yeah
making that gold and silver shine
trying to make me blind

I’m so glad you are here right now
Christs blood set me free yeah
free from all I have defaced
all my horror and dismay

I’m down low lifted high
help me lord see with your eyes
set me free from my sin
and any place that you aren’t in
to my Lord I aspire
burning with a holy fire

bring me to my paradise

oh my paradise (out)

    I do not even have a subwoofer and my rear view mirror in the car was rattling, that is some clean low end! Nice.
