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

"So, Charles, I listened to your recording and read your lyrics.  I appreciate what you did with this and find it enjoyable as a performance style song.  However, there is a lot you did that doesn't allow it to readily work as a…"

"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…"

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…"

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.
