Week 4 Video

Week 4 of the 52 week challenge.

This song was created because I saw a lot of "The Love Revolution" shirts at Sonshine this year.

Checked it out at:

Pretty cool stuff. So yeah, this song is to all those who believe that love can revolutionize a world.

Love is a Revolution - Week 4 Lyrics

Verse 1:
There's no waiting on this,
we've got to make it happen.
We've got a message of love,
Love is our revelation
Come on let's take the nation...

Love is a revolution
Love is a revolution
Come on, rearrange
We've got to be the change
Love is a revolution

Verse 2:
Is something holding you back?
Don't let fear get your best
This is a movement of love,
now go find someone to bless

Love is a revolution
Love is a revolution
Come on, rearrange
We've got to be the change
Love is a revolution

Week 3 Lyrics - Something To Hold On To

Here are the lyrics for Week 3!

Verse 1:
Tripping through this world is how we move,
Looking for something to hold on to.
When everything we touch, seems to slip away,
God tell me there's still something here for me.

Can you see me?
Can you hear me?
Can everything we've counted on be true.
Can you see me?
Can you hear me calling You?
Can everything we've hoped for be the truth.

Verse 2:
Another day of going nowhere fast,
I'm feeling like a kite blown in the wind,
I'm afraid of coming down,
afraid to touch the ground that launched me,
for fear that I will never shake this doubt.

God, I will step out in faith,
Please go before me and wait,
I will come running to You.
I'll put my feelings aside,
and trust the promise of life,
You've given to me.

Chorus 2:
Can you see me?
I can hear You
Yeah, everything we counted on is true,
I can see you,
I can feel you breaking through,
Yeah everything we've counted on You'll do.

Week 2 -- Enjoy the hair!

Week #2

This song's strength is two-fold:

First, if you arrange it right, it could be a good song. I played through the parts of the song as fast as possible as to not have too long of a video, but if it was lengthened a bit it could be good .

The other strength of this video is the fact that I have this AMAZING piece of hair sticking up off the back side of my head -- pretty funny.

Week 1

Here is the video for week 1...

Hi friends!

Almost every morning I stroll down the hallway at Abbott Northwestern hospital and view some pretty amazing art from some local artists. One, in particular, spent 2 years creating/drawing a new animal every day and released them in the form of a book. He was going through cancer treatments at the time, but his love of drawing helped him keep his spirits up and also gave him something to do.

This artists commitment to doing what he loved made me think about ways that I could do something similar. So, as I thought about this it became clear that my challenge would be to write music -- one song per week for 52 weeks straight. This seems like a daunting task, but it is a task that I am looking forward to!

Here are the basics... Every week on Friday I will post a new song via YouTube. Songs will vary from worship tunes to everything else you can imagine. The first song I have decided to write for my wife. After that the songs will pretty much be open to whatever I feel like writing about and any ideas YOU might have for me. I'd like to make this process as interactive as possible so if you have an idea then throw it out there via YouTube or Facebook or Myspace and I will try to write a song for you.

52 songs for 52 weeks. All will be original songs and all will be worked on for one week. The first song comes in one week!

Thanks for your continued support!!
