I wanted to write something in this genre,
but I didn`t want to preach, or have it to dark..
so I kept this kinda in the center of the road
I don`t know if this even qualifies as gospel....
but its the only gospel song I have....lol Lane




heard of a man
head bent and bleeding
heard of a man..
seen all there is ever going to be.
heard of a man
forgive all others
I have heard of a man
that could set you free.

Chorus:
He said ..I don`t have very much time
brothers watch for me.
I don`t have very much time
my Father is calling me.


heard of a man
changed up the water
heard of a man
that could walk on the sea.
I have heard of a man
says you have to believe.
heard of a man..and He has heard of me.

Chorus:
He said ..I don`t have very much time
brothers watch for me.
I do not have much time
my Father is calling me.

music bridge:

Chorus:
..I don`t have very much time
brothers watch for me.
I don`t have very much time
they are going to crucify me.

tag:
heard of a man....heard of a man....

I like this a lot! I don't write in this Genre but I don't see why this wouldn't qualify.
Love that blues sound, and some lovely guitar work.
I like the low-key lyric too. Understated.

Have you considered a dramatic pause at the end of the chorus?
A strong chord on the "My" in "My father's calling me" with the rest of the line just vocals, then a solo guitar riff to bring back the next verse

Pretty cool, Lane. You sound like Willie Nelson. I think this could be tightened up some, mostly structurally. But it certainly gets the idea across. Plenty to work with, and a good listen. Thanks.

Chorus: 2:46
..I don`t have very much time
brothers watch for me.
I don`t have very much time...
but if you know me
(dramatic pause)
you'll see eternity

add the crucify line to the first chorus :)
