This is a song I wrote after greeting a friend last week and he asked me how I was doing, and I said "I'm better than I deserve", and he said, he liked that answer and I thought that would make a great song.

I’m Better Than I Deserve

A friend came to me and said, hello how are you?
I could have told him that I’m just ok.
But then I think about, what my Jesus did for me,
I’m better, better than I deserve.

Chorus:

I’m better than I deserve, because Jesus died for me,
they made him carry his own cross, to a place called Calvary.
There he shed his blood, so I could have the victory,
I’m better, better than I deserve.

Now a days, I have a better outlook on this life,
though Satan tries to throw me a swerve.
I can truly say that the Lord is in my heart,
I’m Better, better than I deserve.

I’m better than I deserve, because Jesus died for me,
they made him carry his own cross, to a place called Calvary.
There he shed his blood, so I could have the victory,
I’m better, better than I deserve.

I’m better than I deserve, because Jesus died for me,
they made him carry his own cross, to a place called Calvary
There he shed his blood, so I could have the victory,
I’m better, better than I deserve,
I’m better, better than I deserve.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Hi Ronnie,

I'm into Gospel and similar music and really liked your song.

Vocals - it's well sung and in tune. However IMHO it could be improved significantly with an EQ cut in the lower mids/bass - possible several cuts but certainly one at 120 Hz which is the problem muddy sound all us male vocalists struggle with.
This would make the vocal "sit down" in the mix.

Otherwise - this is another top song from you and look forward to more.

Best Regards
Nigel
