Let Go and Know

Started this discussion. Last reply by Brian Lawson Feb 6, 2017. 4 Replies

"Let Go and Know" is a song that I have been working on lately.  It seems to me that it would work as a congregational song, though it may be more of a performance song.   I would greatly appreciate…Continue

Silence of this Night (Rewrite)

About one year ago I started writing a Christmas song that I shared here at the time.  Since then I have expanded the lyrics by adding a second verse, a bridge, and changing up the melody somewhat.…Continue

"It’s the latter. I wouldn’t overthink the lyrics. Paul says in 1 Corinthians 3:17that we (corporate) are the temple of God. The song attempts to capture that each one is a piece seemingly worthless on its own but valued by God and built…"

"Charles, Thank you.  I can always depend on you for a thoughtful critique. Yes, I was aware that I switched to addressing God directly in the bridge, and it is something I don't usually do and agree that it probably shouldn't be…"

"Okay, so here are my first impressions... you know how I operate on this stuff... Reading through the lyrics, there is something about that line "Saved by God's own Son" in the first verse that feels off. I just really want it to be…"

Temple of Broken Pieces

Posting this song for thoughts and advice.  I have shared this song in another songwriting group in the past and I have rewritten it a couple of times but I still feel it could be improved somewhere.   Some questions in my mind:  Would it work as a congregational song in your church?  Is there anything about the song that you would do differently if you were writing it?  Does it flow nicely or is it clunky somewhere?   Is the style and melody appealing?  Do the lyrics make sense?A worktape…See More

Brian Lawson replied to Joe Aiken's discussion 'Questions & Trust'
"I really like the style of this song.  The melody in the verses grabs me.  The lyrics ask reflective questions burdened with some doubt.  That being said, I hope you'll do a second verse - 4 or 8 lines along with tweaking and…"

"Will the song contest limit the genre to congregational worship songs or will it be open to CCM, Worship songs that are not congregational, and other Christian music styles?"

Thanks Brian.  I originally wrote and recorded that in the 80's and decided it needed a fresh recording.  I got it done in 2010.  I remember experimenting with micing the amp for the electric off a reflection of a wall.  Not sure it really made any difference but was fun to try.  I actually wrote lyrics for it at one time, but nothing stuck so I kept it an instrumental.
