"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

Here's the finished song...
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 ...

Alan

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

Nice song.

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???

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® - What People Are Saying...

Wow, check out the latest feedback from Band-in-a-Box® users!

"I have one song I've been torturing over to get the sound right for quite some time and I merely keyed in the chords and what BB generated is awesome. Just what I hoped that song would sound like. What had taken me months to get right (and couldn't), the program could do in about an hour - AMAZING!"

"Great Ear Training Exercises! And I love that that you can set the tempo to whatever you choose. It's great for learning a tune!"

"A very good and easy to use musical program!"

"It's amazingly easy to use! Write a song? No problem! Add background sound track to a video? No problem! Put notes on a staff and have BB make up a chord progression and tell what key you are in? No problem! Start with a chord progression and have BB make a melody line? No problem!"

"Still the best practice tool I have found, great for running lines, improvising over and really helpful for working on song writing ideas as well! Good for beginners, and the more musical skill and knowledge you have the more you will get out of the software."

"I create demo songs with Band-in-a-Box, it helps me to get my ideas across to my engineer!"

"Been using Band-in-a-Box for years. Outstanding product from a great company!"

"It's like buying a Musical History Jukebox. It comes with probably 3000 styles and is like hiring session musicians to play rhythm with you, they even have soloists! It introduces you to so many types of rhythms that you other wise would know nothing about. "

"Paul McCartney said you gotta have a great band behind you. Well, Band-in-a-Box is my band."

"It's as easy as typing in the chords, choosing your style, instruments, etc., and off you go! Learning the tune? You can slow it down while you work on it then speed it up. My favorite analogy is a good chess program, which will play at your speed and level and is eternally patient!"

"I love my Band in a box, it does so much! Besides all the RealTracks and song ideas, it's a great tool to stay sharp with your licks. Social distancing got you down? Can't jam with friends? Pick out any song and go to the mixer button, there you can mute any instrument that's playing so you can jump right in and play along!"

"I love it. I'm a drummer, and Band-in-a-Box really keeps me on my toes!"

"The DAW plugin is really great. Trust me on this. I use it with Studio One.

"This is how I've been able to gig solo for the past 20 years. Band-in-a-Box is the great equalizer for us none rhythm players."

"Wouldn't want to be without it! One of the best things I bought in my life. Simple as that."

"As a songwriter I really love to work with Band-in-a-Box. The only limitation is your own creativity."

"I've used Band-in-a-Box for 25 years and thanks to this program and the advice of PG Music staff I've written over 100 songs. It's great software and amazing help to me as a musician. CONGRATS!!!"

Thank you for all the amazing feedback!
