Hi there. My daughter put together a chord progression that she likes and asked me to write a song. This is what I've come up with. All feedback appreciated as always.

I'll try and do a scratch track a little later today.

Thanks.

Annette

Faith, Hope, Love and Life

Faith is believing in a higher power

Knowing in the spring the buds will flower

It gives you the courage to break free

Whatever challenges face you and me

Hope is the sparkle in your eye that says “I believe”

It's feeling safe to wear your heart on your sleeve

It's the beam of light that glows in the night

The sense that all things in your future are bright

Love is built on the feeling of trust

It is compassion and sacrifice; it is not lust

It is forgiving and eternal and feels so free

It carries no conditions as you will see

Live can have its ups and downs

It can bring happiness or can cause frowns

Live gives our very first breath

It's inevitable that it ends in death

So live every day like it's your last

Live in the moment and forget the past

Have faith and hope and find true love

Life will then feel as free as a dove

Thanks Marty. I often find it hard to find things to write about, but this one worked for me.

Thanks Eddie,

Just noticed typo's in the 4th verse...should be "life", not "live".

Life can have its ups and downs

It can bring happiness or can cause frowns

Life gives our very first breath

It's inevitable that it ends in death

Thanks Carol and Chris,

My daughter has been taking lessons for a few years now, but I could never get her interested in song writing or recording. So, I was pleasantly surprised when she asked me to do this for her. Makes me very happy. She is very talented.

My youngest daughter has just started taking piano lessons, so I can't wait to get her involved as well.

Dad just critiques us all (so far). :D Oh and provides great technical support.

I finally got around to doing a recording. Still needs work and would like any suggestions for the mix. My voice gave out for some reason on the word "last"...I left it because I know I have to redo the vocals. I have problems with my microphone picking up the metronome. I bought really good headphones to alleviate this, but that didn't work. I think they are too big for my head, so they are not as "circumaural" as they should be. Or, I'll just have to turn the headphones down maybe.

Anyway, I'm pretty sure my daughter will play the bass for this song when I do the final mix. That will make it more her song. I've been waiting a long time for this.

Here's goes. Feedback, suggestions appreciated as always.

Thanks.

Annette
