"Your Will Not Mine"

Verse 1
This is not the way I would have chosen
Sometimes the right way can be hardest way
I never thought I could feel so broken
I never thought that I would ever say
Lord, I've never felt so far from Your grace
If there's a reason, I wish I could see
As the tears roll down my face
These are the words that keep coming to me

Chorus
Your will not mine
And it will be in Your time
Don't know what else to do
But put my trust in You
Your will not mine, Lord
Your will not mine

Verse 2
I traded knowledge for my innocence
Just find I know less and less each day
When knowledge brings you no deliverance
Then all that you can do is to pray
Maybe there's things I don't need to understand
For Your thoughts they are not my thoughts
Maybe I need faith to just leave it in your hands
You are God and I am not

Chorus
Your will not mine
And it will be in Your time
Don't know what else to do
But put my trust in You
Your will not mine, Lord
Your will not mine

Chorus
Your will not mine
And it will be in Your time
Don't know what else to do
But put my trust in You
Your will not mine, Lord
Your will not mine

Outro
Your will not mine, Lord
Your will not mine

Thanks

Bawb,

Another good write. And another terrific vocal.

It seems that amazing Rock Vocal thing is easy for you (at least you make it seems so). That is a real gift. Not many folks have that. Do you sound different than most folks when you speak? Wish that I could do that... (but that is never going to happen).

The tracks sound good. There is an overall Bryan Adams sound - song and tracks and vocal.

One small thing - opinion: the vocal "sits on top" of the tracks JUST A LITTLE. There is, therefore, a slight "separation" between tracks vs. vocal. If it could "sit down in the mix" JUST A LITTLE that would be icing on this cake.

Hello Bawb ...

Well, Floyd beat me to the Bryan Adams reference. And I agree with everything else he said. Great backing tracks and a terrific lyric. That was a super listen ... enjoyed it a bunch.

Wishing you the very best. Be safe ...

Hello Bawb,

It's very spiritual your lyrics. The tone of your voice lends itself very well to the content of this peosia. The arrangement is sober but fits well with what you sing.

Kindly regard

Bawb,
Amazing gravelly emotion in your vocal keeps me coming back to your songs;an instant connection with the feelings expressed in the lyrics.

Bawb,

Wow, really great write . . . and my favorite vocal from you (among many). Just a great rock ballad vibe to this. Personally, I don’t hear the Bryan Adams vibe as much as others—though I’m falling short of thinking of a more apt comparison. Which is to say, your vocal is familiar but your own, which makes this tune all the more special. Killer!

My humble regards,

Deej

Hi FJ, Al-David, Dero13, Blue Attitude, CaptainMoto, RobertKC, Deej56

Thanks for your comments, they are greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your comments, especially in the mixing subject. I'm still working through the learning process on mixing.

As far as this:
"Do you sound different than most folks when you speak?"
I actually don't really know that I do sound different, but I do have somewhat raspy voice, I guess from doing a lot of yelling (HA)! I have also been criticized for the raspy singing voice in the past and have been told to stop trying to sing this way and use my "normal" voice. Truthfully, I used to be able to sing with a smooth voice, but not it actually hurts to sing that way and feels more natural to sing the way I do. If that makes sense???

Superb vocal, a great rock sound.

Very nice backing track choice, and a lovely overall sound.

Truly excellent work all round.

Excellent. Your vocal has soul ... and that gets J&B on board immediately.

Everything is hittin' the note. The write, the vocal, the band and the nice arrangement.

This should hold its own on any rock oriented praise and worship playlist.

Enjoyed it!

J&B

Agree on all that!! Killer rock voice! I too would love to be able to belt it out, but it would sound really bad if I tried! Take care. Greg

Really great, sounds like Axl Rose to me. Song was terrific, too. Volume a little high on the vocal compared with the mix, not a big thing.

Bawb - This is a very good song. Your vocals are outstanding. Those "rock" vocal chops you have really take the song to a new level, and give it a power and rawness that suits it perfectly. I'll let others comment about the mix and production subtleties - on this one I just listened and enjoyed from beginning to end. You had some really nice space in there at key points too.

Well done - Rock on!

Hi Floyd,

Hope you don't mind me asking - how do you get vocals etc. to "sit down in the mix" - the separation you mention is one of the things I always have a problem with in my recordings. Is it just a levels thing or is there more that can be done?

Any advice greatly appreciated, but don't worry if you don't have time to reply - just thought I'd ask, because your comment resonated with me.

Thanks,
Gav.

Fantastic work, Bawb. You're giving Bono a run for his money, only on the positive side of the light.
Which leads me to this: Do you know your song is very relevant to the day? Many of us are wondering how we'll ever get out of this mess we are in today. That has led to a lot of discussion on the role of the Son of the Morning and his various forms. As music lovers, we all know the symbolism is about everywhere we listen. A most influential Luciferian, founder of the Church of Satan and author of The Satanic Bible was a man named Anton LaVey. His oft-repeated motto was "Do as thou wilt shall be the whole of the law." That is, "My will, not Thine.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
