Description
Our friend Scott shows up at the house yesterday with some lyrics that he had written about his late Father.He hummed a piece of melody and asked "what do you think?" Before I could respond,my son went and got his acoustic guitar and began playing some chords that went well with the melody...So I went and got my acoustic and we sat down and put this song together.My son also played the bass and I played the drum part.Scott also added the harmony parts...

Lyrics
Shine Your Light

You are gone now
But you didn't have to bring me down
And I am strong now
Kinda glad that, your not around

I pray that God will
Have mercy on your soul
But I'm not sure that
You even knew Him at all

Chorus
Lord shine your light down
Shine your light on me
Lord shine your light down
Please shine your light on me, Lord let it shine

Lord forgive me
For the past I can not change
I need your help to
Get my feelings re-arranged

I'm tired of paying
The price for yesterday
I need you with me
Show the light and lead the way

Repeat Chorus

Good writing. Very solid piece, even if it came off the tops of your heads. Really great that your son is participating. I'm working on making something similar happen with my son. Compliments to all.

Clarity
The treble clarity of the guitar is really nice. Strong rhythmically groove classic, with appropriately confident vocals. Great listen. Thanks,

Very much enjoyed in all departments, reminds me of something that could have well come from my favourite period in pop/rock music - 1970 to 1975. Nicely written and performed.

Scott and I grew up in the 70s and I still think of that period of time as the golden age for modern music.So glad you liked it.

Wow
What a great story on how this came together! That kind of thing has only happened to me back in the band days of high school. We used to bolt over to each others houses with new progressions or lyrics and compose on the spot.

This is beautiful and the lyrics are deep. Performances are really spot on. Nicely done!

I liked this
First off, I liked the Honesty of the lyrics. Please pass on my sincere compliment to your friend, Scott, for expressing the 'other side' of parental relationship. The whole package of the music mix was very pro sounding.. Vocals exquisite.. A pleasure to listen to.

It great
when an idea comes together and everybody grabs an instrument and makes it a reality and what makes it even better is when its a father and son, like that the song sings about goodness and the light from the lord, tops :)
