Hi Group, it's been a while since I've posted so glad to be back. This is a scratch track of a new song. No production at this point; just an open-air mic in my living room and me trying to figure out chords. As always, feedback is welcomed! Lyrics are below.

Call On Me
Emmanuel Lawrence
Copyright 2019


Intro
Call on me (5x)

Verse 1
You might be lonely
You might be scared
You might be crying inside
And not even aware
If you need a friend to talk to
Someone to sit up the whole night through
Now, you donít have to be alone
Iíll be right there; just pick up the phone

Chorus
Call on me (2X)
It doesnít matter where
Iíll be right there
Call on me (2x)
(Repeat all)

Instrumental Bridge

Verse 2
When your grey skies clear
And the sun shines down
When the rain disappears
And your bad times are laying flat on the ground
I want to see you smiling
No, I canít wait
To see your joy, hear your laughter
And help you celebrate!

Repeat Chorus & Outro

So I do Country and CCM... I would think long and hard about making this a pure Gospel tune. You can have a choir assist on this and once the lyric is fleshed out if done correctly could be played in churches around America and beyond. You could develop it as Call on me or you could change position and title Call on God ...As a White man who led worship in a predominantly black church for 3 years I can tell you this. If you write this well, this tune can be sung all over...but you got a lot of work ahead of you. Also once written hire the best damn Gospel keyboardist/producer you can find and I would use a Choir. The hook is there already donít change it, and if you are a believing man or are even open to writing this one in the Gospel Genre, I would highly encourage it

Thatís what I hear

You have a very nice voice and sing your tune very well - I think with some editing of the lyrics this will be a fantastic song - maybe adding some backing vocals and more instruments into the mix.
