STEEMIT OPEN MIC WEEK 100 - PRAYING TO A DIFFERENT GOD (ORIGINAL SONG BY STEPHEN MARTIN & TURNER SHADDON)

in #openmic2 years ago (edited)



I say week 99 in the video because I got a little mixed up, but since week 99 has passed, I'm entering this as week 100. Please forgive me. LOL.

This week I'm entering a song I wrote with my brother years ago. I've entered it before, but I was having fun a couple weeks ago and recorded a version that has a keyboard in it and a slightly different tempo. I thought I would enter this version this week and add a little something extra with my harmonica. I hope you like it.

Lyrics

Vrs 1

I've been holding on to something even when nothing's at my back
Trying to get loose of all my values, always holding on to someone else's sack

Chorus

Praying to a different God
Using no one else's words
I won't fall down on my knees
I lift my legs up from the dirt
And if you ever had the time
Would you ever use that line
The one that made me fall

Vrs 2

I keep chasing all the shadows. I'll write a book about it someday
Who we are, acting up like nothing matters, oh
Who are we to say? Who are we to say?

Repeat chorus

Outro

In love with you... x4
