Whenever I pick up this ole guitar to play
Every time I try to write a song of another sort
The Holy Spirit comes, inspires thanks and praise
Singing for the love of... 
 

Hi Richard

Hi Richard,
                   I hope you have been well along with everyone else contributing to this site. I'm just wondering how you feel about our collaborations and what we should do with what we have done and where to share them? It's good to see so people contributing here. All the best. Alex.

Learning Light

1st Verse:
I've cried so many tears that the river is full
But got back up and tried then got a shiver from the school...
Of the spiritual aspect
I have fruits to give in a lyrical basket...
But I'm just speaking from the heart
And never meaning to take the listener to the dark...
Because we have enough of that in life
But there is one more sort of being tough - the one without a knife...
Or fists
I saw myself in the mist... 

Stop The Hate

MP3 Music Playlist: 
1st Verse:
The light can still shine on the darkest of days
At night there may still be crimes but we continue to pray...
The love Jesus has for us
Is so open yet at times mysterious...
The hope continues
From writing this note with open windows
My coat is always yours and I'm sure it will fit-you...
Brothers and sisters
Cousins and teachers...
We all deserve love and... 

Love 101

Hip Hop lyrics by Alex were made into a Hip Hop song and a Folk-Country song. See how we did it! Richard has recorded two audio demos. See revised lyrics in Comments section. See the Comments section for the progression of lyrics and the two different song approaches. 

Love 101
Original Hip Hop lyrics by Alex:

1st Verse:
The cold weather followed me around town
But I never sold my soul even though I was mostly down...
Then I got to know the lord
That's when I knew it was time to put down my sword
That frown turned upside down and I started to adore...
Everything around me - and it seemed magical
Was I in a dream - because life became manageable...
And beyond - this must be the answer
So I put love into every song and mess around like an amateur dancer...
Because very few opinions only matter to me
Life gave me a platter when I decided to be free...
  

Happiness Can Be Found

MP3 Music Playlist: 
Richard has done a rough exploration of singing with guitar. See audio file below. It's not Hip Hop. It's just freeform singing and playing.

1st Verse:
GOD - I see you through the light from my soul
And I know I don't need to fight to know
Because even though life might be cold...
At times
I can do things like make rhymes
And put the breaks on the hate and accelerate the divine
I'm just trying to demonstrate what isn't mine...
I feel presents in his presence
Kneel before him and get a message not a sentence...
 

Pieces of Peace

MP3 Music Playlist: 

10-4-2017: Richard added a reading of Alex's poem.

1st Verse:

I've seen good and bad

Now I question myself should I be mad?...

At a world where light wants to shine in our lives

No more fights this time I want to embrace what is right...

Even though pain cannot be avoided

I want to see the same light everywhere which I see in the lord-and...

I don't know why we fear death...
