An Original

I'm not a songwriter. I've only written 1 song. I wrote it at age 18. 
Today, I'm going to let you listen to a piece of my musical from 10 years ago.

In this recording I'm singing my song WAY out of my range because I wrote it on my piano at home which was probably 2-3 steps flat. My piano was never tuned. My alto tone is stretching to soprano, which is not my strength. I really didn't know what my range was then. :)

As hard as it is for me to listen to myself singing this (and not analyze it to death), I'm going to be brave and let you listen.

Not because I want you to hear my song, to get a pat on the back or praise, but because it is refreshing for me to remember this girl. 
*A girl who loves music. 
*A girl who was brave enough to share what God had creatively given her. 
*A girl leaving home for the first time to find herself.

I AM THAT GIRL!
This is my song, "A Peace Where You Dwell." Lyrics below.

Wandering, without a cause
To find a connection to fill a void
Searching for the answers that aren't reliable
Praying for a peace where You dwell

My fighting and striving has led me nowhere
But I find myself where I belong

You know why my heart aches
You hold out Your hand
You ask me to trust You
Still I look for someone
When you were always there
You're the only one worth searching for

I have traveled for hours
Just for one voice to hear
Let down by the ones that I love most
Knowing Your voice was calling me

My fighting and striving has led me nowhere
But I find myself where I belong

You know why my heart aches
You hold out Your hand
You ask me to trust You
Still I look for someone
When you were always there
You're the only one worth searching for

You ask me to seek You
And only then will I find You
I want to give of my whole heart
To be found by You

You know why my heart aches
You hold out Your hand
You ask me to trust You
Still I look for someone
When you were always there
You're the only one worth searching for
