The Weakness
© 2019 Owen Hovenden

Link to Music


Lord give me strength
For the weakness
Has brought me to my knees
I'm a sinning man, I know it
Got the scars to show it
Now I'm begging please

Help me stand on my own two feet
'Stead of crawling these city streets
Help me make it through the dark of night
Past self defeat in my time of plight

Lord give me strength
To fight the weakness
I can't do it on my own
I've tried before, many times
Far too many crimes
I can't make it alone

Help me stand on my own two feet
'Stead of crawling these dirty city streets
Help me make it through the dark of night
Past self defeat in my time of plight

Tell me now what am I supposed to do
Tell me how to get closer to you

Lord give me strength
For the weakness
Has brought me to my knees
I'm a sinning man, I know it
Got the scars to show it
Now I'm begging please

Help me stand on my own two feet
'Stead of crawling these dirty city streets
Help me make it through the dark of night
Past self defeat in my time of plight

Owen,

Read the lyrics first—which I think are really strong—and like the arrangement that goes with. I think the vocal could sit back a bit in the mix . . . it’s a little too up front—perhaps a bit less reverb as well? But I like this tune . . . here’s another one that could find its way on a backing track for a movie or tv show. Also like the instrumental break out of the bridge—that piano is so very well done. Nice choice there!

Good stuff, Owen. Great to see you back!

My kind regards,

Deej

Good points Deej! If I am lucky, I may be able to get a replacement vocalist in the future. If so, I will definitely bear those in mind.
Thank you sir!

Hi RDM.
I hear this in a movie or TV drama,quite an eerie feel to it but it works well.
I'm not technical so I'll resist making any opinions there.
Good lyric well constructed
Regards
Travis
