Bonjour,

If I’m in the gospel mood.... something like this comes out. A personal prayer in a time where the light was almost unable to reach...

PRAYER

Ought I stay? Ought I speak? A‘
thoughts stream like the ocean
shall I wait? Try again?
and put things in motion...
could it really happen?
may it will be ok
may I find my freedom
the dawn of a new day

please let my hopes be more. A+
than just dust in the wind
please let some colours shine
on all my daily grind
no need to give me wings
but more stability
I got more than one bruise
so set me gently free

if you are there. B
I pray that you are
if you are there
behind the moon and every star
if you are there
I pray that you are
if you are there
guide me near or far
if you are there
behind the moon and every star
oh lord I pray that you are

they say that you saved Daniel from the lions. C
they say that you divided the Red Sea
they say that you saved Daniel from the lions
and you saved Jona from the whale
they say that you saved Daniel from the lions
they say that you divided the Red Sea
they say that you saved Daniel from the lions
will you also stay with me?
even if I fail ?

I stayed, have spoken out. A*
now I'm waiting for signs
I am longing for help
before my faith inclines

Yes, a tissue please. But, that is actually a really good thing when it comes to the lyrics. It has a strong emotional feel.

Yep and I dunno why, but it’s so „minimalistic“. Guess I have had to write it like that. Not much words but more room for emotions!

Ty again!

RK, this is very emotional and powerful. It will make a great song. I long for it, but till then, this part really got me.

if you are there. B
I pray that you are
if you are there
behind the moon and every star
if you are there
I pray that you are
if you are there
guide me near or far
if you are there
behind the moon and every star
if you are there
oh lord I pray that you are


I love it.

Thank you very much for your kind words J.A.!
I have a friend who would like to sing it but we need help to create the music. My friend has a very special alto voice and I think it would fit perfectly! Maybe when I’m a little better....you know what I mean!

Thank you
RK
