I started to write the chorus first, but it sounded like a verse and then a bridge. So I used the first four lines for the bridge and the last two to form a verse. Wrote two verses but still had no chorus. Let it sit for a few days but no luck. Then the next day I look at my non-title title: TBD. And it hit me: To Be Determined! And that turn it around giving it a snappy, positive spin. CMA

To Be Determined

Verse 1:
Feeling that your faith is gone, you got no where to turn
Thinking that your hopes are dashed, your plans are all stillborn
Those means and schemes, those pipe dreams are lost within a storm
Tell yourself you need help, it’s all spinning and you heart is torn

Pre-chorus:
But night bows to morning light
So shed the darkness from your head

Chorus:
Your life’s to be determined
There’s sunny days ahead
If you keep a-yearnin’
Put on a smile instead
Keep your hopes a-burnin’
Don’t you face this world alone
Not too much is set in stone
It’s all... to be determined

Verse 2:
Mornings you awoke in tears from nights that ended wrong
Wishing your game could change so you felt that you belonged
Those scams and dreams always seem to end up on the floor
Tell yourself can’t go on like this, you won’t take it anymore

Pre-chorus:
But night bows to morning light
So shed the darkness from your head

Chorus:
Your life’s to be determined
There’s sunny days ahead
If you keep a-yearnin’
Put on a smile instead
Keep your hopes a-burnin’
Don’t you face this world alone
Not too much is set in stone
It’s all... to be determined

Bridge:
How many times have you asked to be forgiven
How many times have you said, Lord come take my hand
When you felt your losin’ far surpassed your winnin’
When you fell to your knees, cried God, help me understand

Chorus:
Your life’s to be determined
There’s sunny days ahead
If you keep a-yearnin’
Put on a smile instead
Keep your hopes a-burnin’
Don’t you face this world alone
Not too much is set in stone
It’s all... to be determined

Post Chorus:
It’s all to be determined
