Not A Moment Too Soon
by Chris Werle and John Ford
Copyright © 2006 by Christopher P. Werle and John E. Ford

1 Up all night trying to sort things over. Holdin' on tight to the one I love.
So long I had waited for someone like you
Never thought my endless dreams ever would come true. [to CHORUS]

CHORUS
But baby then I found you and somehow we both just knew
That each of our lives would change like the seasons always do.
My world was hidden like the dark side of the moon
And then you rescued my heart and not a moment too soon

2 Ran on faith far as it would take me. Losin' my way at ev'ry turn.
I had no direction like a gathering storm
Chasing dreams of yesterday in any shape or form. [to CHORUS]

ENDING
My world was hidden like the dark side of the moon
And then you rescued my heart and not a moment too soon
Not a moment too soon. Not a moment too soon.
Not a moment too soon.


=============================================================

Since I’ve been teleworking since March 2020 (as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic), that has afforded me time at home to work on all the original songs my buddy Chris Werle and I (John Ford) have written. Chris wrote the lyrics, chords, and melody. I then transcribe it into notation, since Chris doesn’t read music. I then write the harmonies, most of the instrumental solos and/or counter melodies, arrange all the instruments, and put everything together.

All songs started in Band-in-a-Box (and some of them are over 20 years old). Then they were worked up in either PowerTracks Pro or RealBand. Since Chris and I live in different states now, I had to rely on previously recorded vocals and his guitar playing from old PowerTracks or RealBand .SEQ files. Because of limitations in RealBand with some VSTi’s, I did have to export the some of the MIDI tracks out of RealBand and render them to audio in Cakewalk (for those that RealBand didn’t render properly), after which I would bring the audio back into RealBand. But most of the songs and the final mix were exclusively rendered from RealBand.

My goal here is to post one song each day until all 26 of the songs have been posted. Some have been posted previously, but I have gone back and reworked all of them, so they are all new mixes and are different from what was originally posted.

Most of the songs are Christian in nature, so if that’s not your thing, that’s fine. But it’s our thing. So without further ado, here is the music.
