This is the stuff we’re made of

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1sMrcXuR1bNLgPa5JuPzTma74Fsrluucw/view?usp=drivesdk

The Stuff We’re Made Of
(Tracy Richardson, Craig Kuchler)
1.8.22

Vs:1
There’s a jar on the checkout counter
At the hometown grocery store
Needing our dimes and quarters
Dollar bills and more
For the local homeless shelter
The ones who are down and out
Everyone adds a couple coins
So no one goes without

chorus
We are strong when we’re together
We are weak when we’re apart
At our worst when we…are selfish
At our best with open hearts
(We’re) a coat of many colors
Like Dolly’s mama made with love
This is the stuff,
this is the stuff we’re made of

Vs:2
When tornados tear through towns
In the middle of the night
fires rage through neighborhoods
And burn til morning light
Everybody comes to help
From across the USA
Binging food and blankets
Joining hands to pray

chorus
We are strong when we’re together
We are weak when we’re apart
At our worst when we…are selfish
At our best with open hearts
(We’re) a coat of many colors
Like Dolly’s mama made with love
This is the stuff we’re made of

Bridge:
We’re denim and satin
We’re leather and lace
When we’re sewn together
It’s a beautiful thing

Chorus:
We are strong when we’re together
We are weak when we’re apart
At our worst when we…are selfish
At our best with open hearts
(We’re) a coat of many colors
Like Dolly’s mama made with love
This is the stuff we’re made of
This is the stuff
This is the stuff we’re made of

Great Lyric! Google is being a pain as usual though... I think you need to give permission for anyone with the link to access the file...

I would like to hear a demo of this. The lyrics seems to be nicely phrased.

DropBox Works!
I like the piano treatment. This definitely deserves a "fuller" mix! Perhaps some harmony vox? Very nice start here smile

I agree with JAPOV. Great lyric with an important message and the worktape suggests this will be a really good song, with a strong affecting melody already in place.

If I had one suggestion, it would be to make the bridge (which I really like) rhyme or near-rhyme. I'm old fashioned in liking rhyme, but I think I probably have that in common with most listeners. Maybe something like...
We’re denim and satin
We’re leather and lace
When we’re sewn together
What beauty we create

Just a thought. It's really good as it is.
