Walk On

Inspired by Louie's recent blog I thought I would be brave and share the words to a recent song I wrote. Here goes nothing.

Give me the strength to walk on, walk on.
Give me the faith to believe in myself again.
To live this life you paid the price for .
Give me the strength to walk on, walk on.

Putting one foot in front of the other
A chance to make things right
I get out of bed and pray for another
Time to press on

So Give me the strength to walk on, walk on.
Give me the faith to believe in myself again
To live this life you paid a price for.
Give me the strength to walk on, walk on.

Sun is shining and the night is over
Clouds are clearing and I am hearing
A voice so soft but louder than my own
A sound so crystal what have I to fear.

Strength that is not my own
Peace that I now know
Shame begins to lift and you give
me this gift to.....

Have the strength to walk on , walk on
I have the faith to believe in myself again
To live this life you paid the price for
Given the strength to walk on, walk on.

I feel like you rock ON! I want you to sing it to me though. If you give me a private screening (like VH1s "in the round" or whatever they called it) i promise to wave my lighter.

Very nice . . . did you write music for it also?

noel said...

laura- thank you.
shontell- rock maybe? i think the sound is a bit more mellow but maybe?
tim-thanks, yea, i have a melody for it not written down just in my head. i need to transpose the notes with the keyboard but we are having issues with the only instrument we have in the house to do so, so it's there just not entirely.

I agree with Shontell. I enjoyed it, but I want to hear it... but I know that's a very hard thing.

Jeni said...

Oh yeah, and I promise to bring a lighter...
