Idol Contest


Today was the last day to submit a song for the American Idol Songwriter challenge. My wife has asked me to this over and over so . . . I did it.

I submitted my song "Hope" to be voted on. If it makes it in the Top 20 I will be begging the world to vote for it.

Lyrics are below. Click on the player in this post right below for a listen : : :

or click on the "Vertizontal Song of the Week" player in the right hand column.

Wish me luck. Leave me a comment and tell me what you think! Please!

Hope
Words and Music by John Voelz


Sometimes everything within me wants to move along
Sometimes it takes everything I have to move at all
Sometimes I have dreams and plans to change the world—make it count
Sometimes I cry—broken, empty, bruised and full of doubt

Hope meet me in the this place
With every changing way
Feeling so secure
Or when I’m no longer sure

I believe with everything inside
I’ve seen the hopeless rise and find that strength none can deny
A hope and peace that stirs up courage and survives
Hope will survive

Sometimes I rise to my feet-I recognize hope’s voice
Sometimes’ expectation’s whisper is lost inside the noise

Still, hope splits time in two
And hope makes all things new
And comes to my rescue
That’s what hope’s meant to do

And I won’t feel the need to hold tight to the pain
‘Cause hope breathes life the more I set hurt free
And happy endings aren’t reserved for fairytales
The frightened child inside of me
Will soon have lost sight of me

I believe with everything inside
I’ve seen the hopeless rise and find that strength none can deny
A hope and peace that stirs up courage and survives

Wow dude. Way impressed. I think it's better than the songs I typically hear at the end of the season. Good luck!
