Northern Lights

 

 

 

 

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

    Awesome! I can’t wait until the project is ready! As an aside…Northern Lights is one of my “bucket list” desires…always wanted to see the real deal, in person! Hope the Bills was a blast!

The Lawn Mower

In those movies, Mel Gibson’s character was constantly pulling his arm out of the socket and it was humorous and very entertaining. However, I remembered that in one of the movies, he put his arm back in its socket by slamming his shoulder against a wall.

The Show That Changed Everything

This was our most rock-friendly song – a southern growl. We wrote it just for this purpose, to get them in the mood. This was the best venue in town, we were opening for a national act, and playing to an audience we had spent years wooing.

Can you imagine a life spent hosting the goodness of God? What would happen to our lives and the lives around us if we were more aware of His Presence?

This is the gospel and we get to live it. This will change your world today! In fact this is the only way the world will be changed!

Lightning On The Lake

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.

I Need a Waterfall

The outrage that changes and saves this world is the outrage of love. And so I lean into His love, a relational grace; the empowering evidence of my friendship with Jesus.
