So, the other night I was up until 4:51am, unable to sleep. I decided to work a little more on a song I've been developing. I recorded it on my laptop to post on my blog. Some messing around with some lyrics here and there. Shortening the alternative chorus a bit. While I work on this song Ephesians 4:22-24 just keeps running through my mind:
Put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires (the 'mud'), to be made new in the attitude of your minds, and to put on the new self (His 'clothes'), created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.
I thought I'd share it here as my first real WTR post. The lyrics are below. Keep in mind I was trying to sleep after 24 hours of no sleep, so I don't sound too great ;o)
I'm having a hard time downloading on WTR, so if you can't find it or if it won't work, you can check it out on my blog, postes 12/02/08. Comments are welcomed ;o)
