Description
Again, I was just sampling chords and this turned up; my first reggae song. The lyrics just seemed to fall into place and I began recording at 8pm last night and finished at 1am, so certainly one of my quickest songs.....Hope you like it, M

Lyrics
There Is A Light

In each heart there is a light,
Just bring it forward keep it bright,
It’s the light of love Divine,
And that love is yours and mine.

When you feel it you will know,
It gives a feeling that will glow,
Makes the heart feel nice and warm,
Everything around is calm.
(when you)

Chorus. X2
Shine your light make it bright,
Even lighting up the night,
Find that light, make it shine,
Brighter than the Sun.

Nothing nicer you can do,
Than chase away somebody’s blues,
Lift them up like on a cloud,
It will make you feel so proud.
(when you)

RPT. Chorus X2
Middle.
Nothing nicer you can do,
Than chase away somebody’s blues,
Lift them up like on a cloud,
It will make you feel so proud.
(when you)
RPT. Chorus X2

Let that light shine from your smile,
So people see it from a mile,
You will see what that can do,
When they shine their light to you,
RPT. Chorus X2
In each heart there is a light,
Just bring it forward keep it bright,
It’s the light of love Divine
And that love is yours and mine…
Outro.
When you feel it you will grow,
Yes that light will make you glow,
Makes the heart feel nice and warm,
Everything is nice and calm.

Maurice Vizard.

Hi Kicbal
Thanks a lot for giving a listen to this... I had to fiddle about a bit with this to get the vocal separated from the rest, so had to Duck it an extra DB. Really pleased you like how I did this though, best regards M

You do several genres, but they are all passed through the Moviz filter, which makes it unmistakably you. And that's good. You have a great style.

Hi Maurice - On a typical night for me, if I work from 8 to 1, if I am lucky, I may get about 14 seconds completed! I am always amazed when an artist here at MJ cranks out a hit so quickly! This is cool, and I love that grooving beat. Your vocals, as always, are a pleasure to listen to. Thanks for sharing this - I enjoyed listening to it -

Hi Gaylen,
I was listening commenting on your song while you were here LOL. Thanks for the nice words and pleased you liked this song..... thing with the bass was that it was the only one listed under 'Reggae Bass' on the midi list and it's so deep it, that it just seems to merge with the organ... but it is there. Thanks again for calling, cheers M

weird
I am working on my first reggae song too. Really. I love this song. It has a bit of a folk ring to it as well! How do you come up with lyrics? Nice job !!

Moviz said 2575 days ago (July 8th, 2010)
You know Steve,
I really wasn't thinking about a reggae song. I just started pressing with a steady 8 beat rhythm on the low Am chord and moving over to Em7 hitting the Em before the 7 and the words just seemed to fit. I suppose it's a case of writing about what is close to you and fitting the words to the rhythm or thinking what the song reminds you of. When I collaborated with Scofugate I asked him what I should bass the lyrics on and it so happened that he'd already posted the instrumental and named it 'Then There Were Four'; he answered me that it could about family, so I just listened and wrote and it all came together. So if you're stuck for lyrics, ask someone else to suggest a theme and just see what comes. Give me a call anytime and if I can help I will. Also thanks a lot for listening and commenting here. Very pleased you like it. I was worried about doing the bass, because reggae bass is pretty specific, but I went for the simple line LOL, cheers M
