This is a song I wrote that I have put to some music. I think there are a couple different melodies and chord progressions that I'm working with. But anyway, the song is geared towards helping to keep you in a positive state of mind. It just describes a few of the ways that I view things when I'm in a low mood or something stressful arises. Check it out.
Em C G
When I'm feeling down I don't think about just me, I think about you too.
I think about all the things I can do to lift you.
Em C G Am
Is there something I can do, something I can write, a simple way to show you.
My love is all encompassing and so it starts to pour through.
When I'm feeling down I remember to take it easy on you. (I can always talk to you)
I look at all that's around and feel calm when it's quiet too
For this is when I'm greatest, and there's so much in a spoon. (You can do)
When I'm feeling down I ask how can I best improve? (How can I best love you)
E G G Am G
Sometimes I'll even think back to my old self and relate.
The days where love never escaped a single written page.
Em F Em C
All I've ever wanted is to prove my love is true.
So I listen up with both my ears (intently) to everything coming through.
C G Am G
I just want to lift up the world.
I have dreams, so I take them slow.
I've learned time is of the essence on making the flowers grow.
It's the small things in life that keep me going strong.
Original: So I start by helping in small moments so they can grow into bigger ones.
New 1: So I start by helping just a little so one day I can help a whole lot.
New 2: So I start by lending a hand so they grow into bigger plans.
Peace is what I'm about and love is too.
I want to stop to take a moment to do something nice for you.
The words they come out fast, but I am in no rush.
When I'm down, instead of expecting the best, I predict the worst.
Em C G
There's nothing you could do, to stop me from loving you.
Something about those little things you do and creative ways you move.
You've helped me come around, and you don't even know it.
So now I sit in silence and I know this is where I can best be growing.
It's time to come together to deliver a plot.
Let's do something good and help out more people that we thought
could ever have been expected.
Cuz this life is but a blessing.
And in the hard times if the worst occurred, at least I would have expected it. (It was expected)
