You'll Be Shining
on: October 09, 2022, 13:29:51
Been a while since I posted a song....not quite sure why that is. Anyway, I wrote this one for a friend in need.

https://www.soundclick.com/music/songInfo.cfm?songID=14500700

From an aimless shift
Into a painless shift
And from a blinding wrath
To a winding path
From a sightless mist
To a wistful desire
When you slip from the fire

You'll be shining

You have been crying
I can feel your tears
You must keep trying

From shifting sands
To a bird in your hand
Speaking words of wisdom
That you don't quite understand
With that endless list
You are on fire
But when you tame that desire

You'll be shining

I can see you clearly now
You are almost here
I can feel you near me now

Burned by fear
And scarred from falls
Though the price is dear
You still heed the call
Through shear persistence
And sights set higher
You'll come through the fire

And you'll be shining

I see you now
You made it
You're here

Hoi hoi @Leonard Scaper
This is the second attempt to write a comment. The first was refused.

AnywayÖ

Well, maybe the reason why is the very very slow state of affairs in forums. Personally canít complain with how my coop with Faith is received but as a ruleÖ..

You post a very nice song and hardly no one takes the trouble to acknowledge your song and to comment.

I think I would love it.
It seems to me that you write a lot for friends in trouble.
Time to dump your friends and be on the look out for new ones? Emoji???
Anyway, thank you for posting.
And I hope your friendís heart will be lifted.

Kind regards, Gus

Thanks for stopping by for this one, Gus @LePlongeur .

I have not been posting songs as much as I used to even though I continue to write and record with regularity. I guess I no longer have that strong need to garner "listens".

The songs are out there to be heard and it feels good to write and record them....so it's all good.

Yes, @Leonard Scaper
I think I can see perfectly what youíre aiming at. I myself, think Iím somewhere in the middle.
I definitely donít play for the public. But I can remember that (here in the Kitchen) no one acknowledged the song I posted for two straight months and that was a little bit much on the humble ego.

I ended the post with Ďhope you like ití and after two months I posted: Ďwell, I didí!

And itís always nice if the steady fanclub reacts. That was I can see what way Iím heading. There are some changes from song to song.

That, plus, Iím always happy if I hear something from your wotsit. Studio? Hands? No idea! But you know what I mean. Mamma didnít raise no fools.

Hope your Monday will be lovely.
Kind regards, Gus

I haven't even heard the music yet @Leonard Scaper but what a great set of words. 

.... Later

As I expected,  the music really acts as a vehicle for the story, not flash, but it doesn't need to be.

It's great to think that you take the time to support a friend like this. For somebody in trouble it can mean so much.

I think many of us with the current state of the World are 'world weary',  but despite that, the desire to create music, in whatever form, will never go away.

As I'm listening I can imagine you,  guitar in hand, just making music because you can. That is a comforting thought, that all over the world people are doing just that to help hold back the dark.  :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes:

Hi Leonard . . . so many posts you have here . . . yes, it's me, your newbiest fan, and this one is another great listen for me, always appreciative of that giant acoustic guitar recording . . . and this one has some gentle and reassuring vocals . . . especially loved that very airy sounding backing track vocal during the chorus "You'll be Shining" . . . the ending vocal "You Made it, You're here" . . . so good.
