I really like how the beginning of the song reaches out and grabs you. It's gentle and yet set at a frantic pace. Love the guitars riffs. The lyrics are good too. I had to go back and listen to the beginning to get a real sense of what this song was about. It does sound like someone who has reached the end of their rope looking to God for help. I'm assuming this is taken from real situations? I'd love to hear a follow up about how God helped pull this guy through.
Gosh Jason that's awsome. Super catchy. I could listen to it on repeat all day long. Feels like a throwback to a simpler time in music. Yes, I recognize the 80's here - good stuff. The only negative I think is the pre-chorus. It just sort of stops the song to a halt before the chorus. Other than that, it's a great song. Great lyrics too.
Ouch! Would love to know the back story here. I liked the lyrics and the chorus the best, but overall, I didn't really care for this slow song. However, I wonder how it would sound if it were sped up - a lot. You have a great message here and it's a bit snarky, so why not play it out as if it was a "happy" song? I think contrast between the song style and lyrics could be more impactful. I don't know if you're old enough to remember Amy Grant's "Fat Baby", but it has a similar message about being a lazy Christian. (Totally different type of song altogether, but you get the idea...)
This song feels more like a poem. It's simple and straight-forward and is a message a lot of people need to hear. I especially liked the line about hate being a strong thing, but it's nothing when it's not spread. At 4.5 minutes, it's pretty long and begins to feel repetitive.
Leon, I love this song. You have a great voice with a unique style. I did find some of the lyrics to be sort of "choppy" in that they didn't all flow together smoothly and I think that the chorus is a bit jarring with the "To be near...near you" part. I think it would flow better without the the high notes and then the sudden low notes. But I'm just being nit picky here. Overall, I think it's great!
