And the journey begins… my friend Jacob Early and I spent a few hours working on a demo of a song I wrote several years ago.

It’s my first attempt at pre-production – the process by which I will demo several songs and determine whether they will make the final cut.
That’s right, after nearly six years of a musical wilderness I have been set free! I am working on a new full-length album to accompany my new book.

That said, this song needs some re-working lyrically and some serious further production. But for now, I think we captured its spirit. Enjoy, and feel free to let me know what you think.

(I recently changed some lyrics, which is what happens in the production process. I put them in brackets below)

Northern Lights

Went to see the Northern Lights, so bright, reflected in Your eyes

And Your glory cloud descends, hey friends, it’s time we got going

Come on in out of the cold, come home, let’s go find this kingdom come, well done

I’ve been dreaming for a time, if its a crime, (Let me find my joy complete, let me see, oh)  Love be my sweet witness

Come on in out of the cold, come home, let’s go find this kingdom come, well done

When the sun sets on my shoulder, and the Northern Lights shine bold

When my troubles, they’re all over (when Your love is all I know), well done

Come on in out of the cold, come home, let’s go find this kingdom come, well done

The lightning and thunder did not disappoint. The rain fell so heavy you couldn’t see 10 yards. I was a boy again, making jokes, laughing and though I didn’t sing, it was close. We told stories about people getting struck by lightning – each one of us trying to better the previous tale.
