Week 3 SAC Challenge

So week 3…How Difficult you are

I took a look at my songwriting and discovered I tend to write slow to mid tempo songs..For my Challenge I decided to write an Anthem type song with a faster tempo and decided to use the Chorus first… I wanted to write a pub like song that might be used in a celebration of life.  I struggled with this song, and partially because I was worried the melody in part may be too similar to another song…the question is which song?  That being said, I will give you my attempt at lyrics this week and will add the song when I come up with a different melody!

WHEN I GO

When I go 

When I leave this life I know

when I meet my maker up above

don’t cry 

don’t shed a single tear 

for I’ve lived and I have loved

 To all my Friends

who saw me through

all the triumphs and the failures too  

you gave me the gift of kindness true

when I go I’ll put in a good word for you

When I go 

When I leave this life I know

when I meet my maker up above

don’t cry 

don’t shed a single tear 

for I’ve lived and I have loved

To all my kin

all my family

you taught me to be all that I could be

and to my sweet children, my legacy

when I go I’ll leave behind a piece of me

When I go 

When I leave this life I know

when I meet my maker up above

don’t cry 

don’t shed a single tear 

for I’ve lived and I have loved

To my darling

How i’ll miss your gentle touch

you have shown me what it is to truly love

If you find another who can give you all you’re dreaming of

when I go, You’ll have my blessing from above
