Hold On To Me (Ashley Self) v.2

Description
A good friend of mine sent a scratch vocals of this song he wrote with somebody playing a piano on it to me. He knew I had been fooling around with GarageBand and asked me if I could do an arrangement for him. I started doing a basic track and sent it to him in a mp3 form. He put it in his garageband and sang on it and then emailed me the vocals back. This is what he got. I think it's pretty good myself. It still could use a little tweaking with the levels and could probably clean up the vocals a little bit.

The story is that his wife had a VERY late term miscarriage and they were distraught over it. This is a song he wrote about how he was feeling spiritually, he is a Christian. Isn't it amazing how easy it is to get it all out in a song? Anyway, I hope it helps just a little bit with his pain.

Lyrics
It’s not enough to know you love me when my heart hurts this way

When I don’t feel your presence, I don’t know what to pray

Right now all I feel is empty inside and afraid this pain won’t ease



Hold on to me



People try to explain it, they say she’s safe in your hands

But I can’t help but question if this was your plan

Right now all I feel is empty inside and afraid this pain won’t ease



Hold on to me wipe these tears from my face in my faltering faith I cry

Hold on to me in my weakness be strong I can’t stand or even breathe

Hold on to me



Did you know at night that I’m afraid to close my eyes

I see her face so clearly, and I believe the lies

If this be a dream awaken me that I may rise and praise thee



Hold on to me wipe these tears from my face in my faltering faith I cry

Hold on to me in my weakness be strong I can’t stand or even breathe

I can’t stand and I can’t breathe



Hold on to me

Hold on to me
Sad story. Lovely song. The vocals are great - imho - not that you're asking- I'd put a little high end EQ on the vocals they sound a little cotton-y/muffled. But to does add a bit of a softness and intimacy to the track. Nice arrangement, you did a great job.
