Rachel's Stuff- all in one thread! (rc if you wish)

Ok, it's about time I made a thread for my songs. I have at least a CD's worth and have never posted them in a seperate thread other than my blog. Here goes.....

I'm Yours

Verse 1
I cry out for You / I need You desperately
'Cause once again I have / lost my way
I need Your loving guidance / To show me where to go
Lord, please send Your Spirit / to lead me home

Prechorus 1
I know You've said You love me / But why, I don't understand
And after all that I put You through / You're still reaching out Your hand
I know You want to help me / But there's so much I don't see
And all the things I've learned in Sunday school / Are a profound mystery

Chorus
Lord, hear my prayer, help my unbelief, I know You want to free me
Lord, take me there, to where I'll understand what You're trying to teach me
Take me in Your arms, and never let me go
I'm Yours, I'm Yours

Verse 2
Lord, You know I'm grateful / For all You brought me through
But this world makes it hard / to follow You
But Lord, I wanna try to / To see things from Your eyes
And forever / You have my life

Prechorus 2
You know I don't understand You / But I'm glad I don't have to try
'Cause I don't know how someone like me / Can be the apple of Your eye
You know that I'm not perfect / When I want what You have in store
But I only give You a corner / When You want so much more

(Chorus)
I'm Yours, I'm Yours, even more than I know.


*edit* I added the clip.

The One That Got Away

Ok I'm gonna cut-n-past from my blog... b/c I'm lazy.

(capo 3 or 4, however I feel) (kinda fast, about 110)

Chords Used - my own interpretations
Am7= x02010
Bm7=x20202
C=032010
C2=032030
D=x00232
Dtriad=045030 (slide C up two frets)
D/F#=200232
D2/F#=200230
Em=022030
EmM7=021030
G=320033
G6=x20030

<pre>*verse 1*<br>Am7 C G D2/F#<br>Do you remember all those days you left me alone<br>Am7 C G D2/F#<br>In the heat of the summer you left me out in the cold
*pre-ch 1*<br> Em EmM7 G6 C2<br>And now, we're standing here reminiscing childhood fears<br> D/F# Em EmM7 G6 C2<br>And when all is said and done I hope you've had your fun<br> Cm<br>Look at what you've become... (and)

*chorus*<br> Em Dtriad C2<br>There's nothing left to say<br> Dtriad Em Bm7 C2<br>You've searched the world only to find<br>Dtriad Em Dtriad C2<br>That the one that got away<br> Dtriad Em Am7-h-Am Dtriad Em<br>Was right in front of you all this time<br>
*verse 2*<br>Am7 C G D2/F#<br>Did you get the message that I sent you years before<br>Am7 C G D2/F#<br>Said how I want you but I had to close the door<br>
*pre-ch 2*<br> Em EmM7 G6 C2<br>Did you know that in my pain I let fall so many tears<br> D/F# Em EmM7 G6 C2<br>Long ago, I would've done anything to have you near<br> Cm<br>And now you're standing here... (but)

*instrumental br*<br>Em D/F# C2 G - D/F#<br>Em D/F# C2 G - D/F#<br>Em D/F# C2 (pause... back to chorus 2x, start fingerpicking then build 2nd time)

*end*<br>D/F# Em Dtriad C2<br>Oh, the one that got away<br> D G C2 C2 (hammer-on w/ index finger)<br>Is still in love with you to this day (leave it hanging!)
</pre>
My masterpiece.

Disappeared

<pre>C<br> Stuck between the pages<br> Em<br>Of letters unread and stories unsaid
C<br> Gather all the pieces<br> Em<br>Of puzzles undone and battles unwon
C<br>And every day has the same beginning<br> Em<br>What more can I say, I'm still remembering
Am7<br>And I miss you, you just left me here<br> Em (Dtriad 2nd time)<br>And I miss you, somehow you disappeared (2x)

C<br> Run around in circles<br> Em<br>Like someone possessed, I must confess<br>C<br> I got lost in your eyes<br> Em<br>Can't find a way out from a season of doubt
C<br>And every time I sit here pondering<br> Em<br>I realize how far I'm wandering
(chorus)<br> C<br>And every season has its time<br> Em<br>So tell me when - you will be mine
(chorus)
</pre>

Very nice stuff.
I think "The One That Got Away" was my favorite. But "Disappeared" came a close second.

Keep writing, I love your songs. Sorry no RC's.

Hey thanx Mark!


Ok.. I have the beginning of another one here. This is just sappy-crappy stuffs I'm currently working on tho...



Sunday Afternoon

Hush your talking now / silence your lips
Not a lot of things in life / get as good as this
Savor the moment / enjoy your dreams
Not everything in this world / is quite what it seems

And I couldn't ask
for anything more


On a Sunday afternoon / there's nowhere I'd rather be
Than lying in your arms / eternally

Good stuff! You have a great voice and a great sense of rhythm and melody. That's a hard combination to come by these days. I'll have to agree with Mark and say that "The One That Got Away" was my fav. They were all good though, I enjoyed listening!

Hey Rachel,

I like your stuff, you've got some nice ideas and some nice chords going down (an EmM7? sweet).

Today

I cannot find the words to say
To tell you how I feel
They haven't been invented yet
I've been watching you from far away
Wanting to get closer
But feeling so inhibited

And time passes
The hours click so slowly by
I'm losing chances
To get to know the you inside

Where have you been my whole life
Baby, I don't wanna scare you away, but I
Just wanna be by your side
Today


This thing is just within my reach
But just beyond my grasp
So near and yet so far off
The angels dropped you at my feet
And now I'm scared to tell you
You're everything that I dreamed of
