Description
I wrote this song for my wife as she was battling a long stretch of depression brought on by bi-polar disorder. It's a simple song of hope . . .
It starts fairly slowly but does pick up. I had a difficult time deciding the key to write this in, whether to keep in a key where I can stay in a baritone or pump it up to the tenor range - as a ballad I chose to keep it the former.

Lyrics
I remember how you let
Life pull you down
You were the first in line to
Be both gagged and bound

Both gagged and bound
A prison shroud, a martyr’s gown

Now you’re back on the
Crossroads again
Choosing between
Beginning and end
Facing a world you’re
So tired of
Even the gods had to
Crawl to above

The birth of every morning
Spreads new light
Seeds of grace are warming
We’ll be alright
We’ll be alright

Chorus:
Believe, just believe
Should the world end today
Skies fall into seas
Believe, just believe
We’ll begin once again
Restart the journey
To set ourselves free.


Bridge:
Just let go of the doubt
Just let go of the pain
Just let time work it out
There’s only peace to gain

The birth of every morning
Spreads new light
Seeds of grace are warming
We’ll be alright
We’ll be alright


Chorus:

Believe, just believe
Let the love we receive
Be all that we need.

Believe, just believe
Should the world end today
Skies fall into seas
Believe, just believe
We’ll begin once again
Restart the journey

We’ll begin once again
Restart the journey
To set ourselves free.

Thanks Jibes
It's something we've been living with for the past 10 years (after her bout with cancer) and is brought on in more dramatic form if she's away from the ocean for an extended bit of time, so South Beach here we come :-)

Thanks Vic
I like songs that tend to build so that there's somewhere to go with it from a songwriting standpoint, however, there's always the risk of losing them at the beginning. Thanks for sticking with it.

Beautiful
A song of hope indeed. What a special thing to do for your wife, I'm sure that she appreciated it so much. Your voice kind of reminds me of Neil Diamond. Wonderful inspirational song!

Thank You Peter
That means a lot. Winters are hard on her, so we try to do a lot of art shows in warm climates to keep her spirits up. She's worth the trials and effort :-)
