Description
This is my first song for almost a year now, but I finally got round to it. I had no inspiration, but I'd been trying (at last) to 'pick' on the guitar for a couple of months as opposed to just strumming or using the plectrum and this song consists of the sequence of chords I seemed to end up 'picking'. I still couldn't come up with any lyrics so I used these from a song I did shortly after joining Macjams in 2007. Its also the first time I've managed to sing after my throat Op'. so I'm pleased I was able to get through this. It's a song that's very relevant to all that's happening in this world at this time......then again, it can't have been so good in 2007 either, since I wrote those lyrics then. Anyhow, I hope you like this new treatment.
The artwork is done on my I-pad, with 'Procreate' and that's where I've been spending most of my time lately, cheers M

Lyrics
Something's going on in the world, people warring,
What is going on in this world, nerves are Jarring,
People try to live their lives, striving for happiness,
They want to make their dreams come true, but something's gone amiss.

People say God's on their side, so why all the killing?
If God is really on their side, why are they so willing,
To take away what God has made, by filling the world with hate?
Can't they all come together, or is it too late?

Is this what God really wants, people at war?
If this is what their God really wants, then I don't want to know.

Something is changing in the world, Evil's thriving,
Someone's trying to brainwash the world, but I'm not buying,
That a God with so much love, would spoil what is good.
He wouldn't want the people of the world, to be spilling their blood.

This is not what God really wants, people at war
Those who say, they’re closest to him, say they do it in His name.

Send out Love to the world; people need it,
Show them all we care for the world and make them heed it.
Maybe peace will come to the world. Come on let's sow it.
Look what we've done to the world and think what we owe it.

Look around at the wonders of the world; see all the beauty,
Flowing rivers and forests of the world; don't you think it's our duty,
To protect and love it all; best of all to share it,
To be proud of all we see... and it’s all for free.

I'm thankful that I'm in the world and that I love it
And when it's time for me to leave this world; looking from above it,
I will say with hand on heart, "This was my home,
It’s the place that I shared with Love, for every-one".
Yes, the place that I shared with love, for everyone.

Maurice Vizard.

Good To Hear You...
... back in the groove, Maurice. And with a worthy message. Yours is a much more sensitive review of the situation than I am capable of providing. Nicely done.

Be well, Maurice. ;)

Hey, Mo. Great that you are back singing. Prophetic lyrics that have held true across the ages. The synth solo works well. Really like the positive message of the last couple of verses. Nice one. Thanks. Take care.

Glad you
like those lyrics Peter......there are two synths as you will have guessed; the Alchemy whistle type synth for the 'lost' feel (left) and the GB Boldt accordion (right) for the eastern and european feel of sadness. Thanks a lot for the kind words and for listening, all the best M

Lovely to hear that you're back!
Take a bow sir - sounds great! You have such a listenable character in your voice, it's very engaging. And yes, the lyrics are just as appropriate now as when you wrote them. Kind of sad really.

Let's keep hoping and striving for some improvement.

Happy Christmas Maurice!

Hi Doug
Such a nice and welcome comment especially about the voice......Yes the lyrics are just as relevant as everyone agrees.....just got to keep hoping and praying, but these thugs seem to be getting more cruel than ever,
Merry Christmas to you and yours also Doug.

Glad to hear you're still at it.
Even though you don't drink, I still have to compare your voice to a well aged bourbon with just enough smoke and roughness to give it some zing.
Keep zinging ol' top.

Throat op
Didn't know you had an operation. You still sound the same!

Cool song. The accordion really makes it. The guitar sounds good, but sometimes it "booms" a little: cut low frequencies. They make the guitar sound good and full when you play it by itself, but they clutter up the mix.

Thanks Vic...
Glad you like the song and I appreciate your comments on the guitar. Throat is not the same now though....but whether its down to the op' or age I can't tell...just know that my breathing isn't the same since, but we can't go on for ever can we LOL....regards M.
