She is Hope
on: December 09, 2019, 01:08:13
After a few years of a withered and dried up creative juice holder I have been given the joy of my first Grandchild and this has inspired me to write.  Whether it leads to more songs, I don't know yet - but I have enjoyed this short journey.

I have left it very simple with just a vocal, piano and sparse bass to let the vocal shine through.

You can hear it here

She is Hope
=========
VERSE ONE
It rained and rained for days and days
but the weather broke when she was born
With jet black hair and skinny legs
her pretty face arrived in the morn'


CHORUS

She is loved
she is soft as soap
she's cherished
She is Hope


VERSE TWO

Her tiny nose and wrinkly toes
a perfect babe in every way
Her dark black eyes brimmed with surprise
A miracle has come to stay


CHORUS

She is loved
She is soft as Soap
She's cherished
She is Hope


BRIDGE

Her father loves her
And her mother loves her strong
Her nanny loves her
And her Poppa loves her so much that he even wrote this song


CHORUS

She is loved
She is soft as soap
She's cherished
She is Hope

Thanks DB.  A grand child sure is life changing.  I already have two more songs underway so perhaps I will find my mojo once again. Time will tell, I am not going to try and force it.

@seriousfun Yes, congratulations, indeed! A sweet and inspired song! :) Simple and heartfelt, and that is good.

@seriousfun
This song is simply beautiful!! :) your source of inspiration really shines through the song, the music, melody and lyrics really bring out the sense of peace, love, calmness and innocence :) It is so beautiful that this event and the emotions it brings with it get to be recorded and preserved in musical form and that your grandchild would then get to listen to the reult when she gets older :) ....Thanks for sharing it with us :)

Well, it’s my opinion that you just can’t go wrong when you write from the heart. This is beautiful Allan, she’s gonna love it when she’s older for sure.😄👍🏻 The music is lovely and you sound great. Only thing I’d clean up is a bit of noise around the 1.32 mark, that should be a super quick fix in your daw.🙌🏻😄 well done mate!

Many thanks to those who have listened/commented. It means a lot to me.

@Pleudoniem  Thank you for the encouragement.

@Jurgen  Many thanks for the good wishes. It is an exciting time in my household.

@Leonard Scaper  Thank you for listening and taking the time to comment.

@Rachel_D  Thnk you Rachael. Its nice to touch base again after all these years.

@LostBoy  thank you for picking up the noise in the track. Its imbedded in the vocal track and is most likely my lips part in preparation for the next vocal line. Ill give it a look.
