This is my submission for this weeks Steemit Open Mic contest by @pfunk and @luzcypher. This week I play an original song called 'You'll Know'.

...so without further ado...

'You'll Know'

Lyrics -

Who's to decide who should live or die
Who's to say who stays and goes
Who's so righteous that they wanna try
Well their righteousness is what makes their ignorance grow
I have a feeling that the world may not be so nice
And it may be some people that live here
It's got me thinkin' that I may not live twice
Why spend my life in fear

Oh, be free
Don't look at me or
Anybody else for what you should be
Feel, your soul
And you'll know
Which way you want to go

They don't mind killin' if it makes money
But they never want to get hit
Do they think that life has a monetary value
When your dead, money isn't worth shit

Who's to decide who should live or die
Who's to say who stays and goes
Who's so righteous that they wanna try
Well their righteousness is what makes their ignorance grow
I have a feeling that the world may not be so nice
And you may be the people that live here
It's got me thinkin' that I might not live twice
Why spend my life in fear

Oh, be free
Don't look at me or
Anybody else for what you should be
Feel, your soul
And you'll know
Which way you want to go

Oh, you'll know

A nice "traditional" sounding song. It sounds like it has an Irish influence?

Ha! You know, I hadn't even thought of that. But now that you mention it, it does seem to have an Irish influence in the sound. I did write it back when I was getting deep into exploring folk music, including a bunch of Irish folk. I'm guessing that had an effect on me writing this style of song. It's crazy how much things are influencing other things without even me realizing it!

Great song!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

your very talented both at singing and writing, I felt i was at our local cafe where they have local musicians on Fridays and Saturdays , something we always used to go pretty often to

Nice. When I was younger I used to like playing open mic nights at the local bars, but I'm to old for that bar stuff now days. lol. Thanks a lot for the compliments!!

Yeah I am too old to go out to Open Mic nights myself these days, we used to go and my wife would sign a few songs but age has caught up with us

I really enjoyed this. I forgot I was at work for a minute and felt like I was in a coffee shop. The lyrics are very topical. Nice job Derek!

That's awesome. Thanks @kunschj!

Ha! I love this one. I also love that all your original songs are about living free and being yourself.

Thanks dude! Not all of them are about that, but it does seem to be a theme I like. lol!

Well done mate! Good song. I write a lot of poetry. If I ever decide to take a stab at lyrics, I'll let know ... can't sing or play a guitar.
