This is my first song using my new "BIAB Ultra Pak 2022", and it tells a story of a lonely girl finding the church I attend.

It Was Like A Lighthouse



She was walking down the road, so down and so blue,
it seemed all hope was lost, nothing she could do.
Then she turned that corner, onto Bell Avenue,
saw a church house on the corner, it stood out and she knew..

It was like a lighthouse, it’s beacon white and true,
the saints inside were praying, they knew what to do.
They saw her standing by the door, they said, come on in,
It was like a lighthouse, just like a long lost friend.

She made her way to the front, at an altar oh so wide,
she fell down just praying, opened up inside.
She said father forgive me, with tears streaming down her face,
she felt the presence of the Lord, and his amazing grace.

It was like a lighthouse, it’s beacon white and true,
the saints inside were praying, they knew what to do.
They saw her standing by the door, they said, come on in,
It was like a lighthouse, just like a long lost friend.

It was like a lighthouse, it’s beacon white and true,
the saints inside were praying, they knew what to do.
They saw her standing by the door, they said, come on in,
It was like a lighthouse, just like a long lost friend.

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

Standout chorus. Good storytelling. True story or created from your imagination?
