I recorded this video last night of my song “Angeline”. Here are the lyrics:
Angeline

Wars and rumors of war 
And they ain’t go away
There’s a hurricane gathering off the coast
Will make landfall on Monday

In a basement apartment on Montague Place
We’re trying to love the way we should
And hold this family together
We’ll hold this family together

 Angeline
 I wanna do right by you
 Angeline
 No man works harder than I do
 Still I’m scared of losing what’s mine
 Angeline

Photographs on the dresser 
Remind me of better times
Held the babies in our arms
In our hearts a dream that would never die

My heart breaks to see you on your knees tonight
Praying for peace to come
You should be far away from here little one
You think i’m the best you could have done?

 CHORUS

 Now what if they told you ‘bout when we were older
 We never would have believed
 We were young, we were fearless, we were free
 And nothing could have stopped us or come between you and me

So tonight we’re leaving
Gonna take a bus up north
I’m so tired of trying
To prove what I am worth

Past the houses I could never give you
Out of this town where we never belong
Back to where it all began
Back to you, me and a song

 Angeline
 I wanna do right by you
 Angeline
 No man works harder than I do
 I’ll never lose what’s mine
 Angeline

My song, “Heaven”, was just chosen as a finalist in the International Songwriting Competition. I recorded this quick video of it. It’s a chill, folky number. Enjoy!

For all you guitarists, this version is in open C (CGCGCE)

Heaven

Words and music by Luke Brindley
Produced by Chip Johnson

Don’t need no trumpets or no pearly gates
Tell Saint Peter put the guest book away
Crystal lakes and streets of gold
Life together is better than stories we been told
Yeah I know my hearts true home
Ain’t nothing I can own
When I’m with you and you and you alone
Might as well be heaven

Blanket on the beach - your body next to mine
Tan skin glowing in the bonfire shine
Strumming a song - sipping strawberry wine
We’re simple and free and it feels just fine
Swear I heard those angel choirs sing
When she said she’d wear my ring
Wanted that girl more than anything
Feels a lot like heaven

Ain’t no telling how I’ll go when it’s my time
Peacefully in sleep or face a firing line
Hand me my guitar as they lay me down
Have my kids and wife and friends gather round
Maybe when we’re released
No more sorrow - just wholeness and peace
I think I’ve had my own taste of that feast
Feels a lot like…

I’ve never felt at home
In this world of flesh and blood and bone
Maybe the love I’ve known and the grace I’ve been shown
Is just a glimpse of heaven

last night.

record some work tapes. go for a drive. make some lyrical and melodic decisions. i’m more decisive when driving? sing parts a cappella into voice memo app while driving (or at red light). becoming part of my process.
