New song - "gather all your things" is a terrible title.

I dont' have a name yet really. Has coolish chords, with a ii chord and whatnot. PLEASE leave comments.

Gather all your things and leave them by the street.
You know where I'll be
Get up off your knees and follow me.
You know where I'll be.

Wherever there's a will there's a way.
I want you to find me.
From where I stand there's no other way.
You know where I'll be.

Even lightening finds its way to the ground.
Find your way to me.
Even fire knows that it too can drown.
Drown yourself in me... Drown yourself in me.

And don't let anybody tell you what you need.
I know you need me.
Cuz love never came packaged in greed.
You were made for me.
You know where I'll be.

(shifts to a more minor tonality using a minor vi chord instead of the I.)

I pine away and I try to hear your voice
When its not cursing me.
I want to let my angels rejoice
If you'd only speak to me.

(i'm going to pick one of the following two verses, vote on which is better.)

Option A:
I know how you feel waiting by the phone,
waiting here on bended knee.
I know I have to let you alone,
If I want you to be free.

Option B:
Give an ear and try to filter out the noise.
Silence was the killer of me.
And you that I have no other choice
If I want you to be free.

I like "option b" better, matty.

i like option a better, well perhaps not better, i feel rather unsure about that one. but i do like the drowning analogy. and yes, gather all your things is really not a very good title. something a bit more abstract perhaps. but i have a very positive overall opinion about this. record it. then i'll tell you some more about it.

I like option a better....oh and I was poking around the folder where you posted Hey Now Baby. I like the song, a lot. But I also found another one in there that I liked even more. I forget what it's called, but it's nice.

Hey Matt,
I tend to register my comments with you a lot anyway, but I have to say that I like a better here. Personally, I'd kinda like to hear the song, too, though. I think I like a cuz it makes more sense to me somewhere. The bended knee bit reminds me of some line from something (I know, how generic is that)- "And I've been down upon my knees, not waiting for a miracle, but just a reason to believe." As for the title, yeah, "gather al your things" kind of reminds me of a song we used to sing in church when I was little. But you'll think of something, or maybe stick with that, whatever works
