Music Only One Man
Posted by: Noah Westfall - 02-22-2017, 10:14 PM - Forum: Song Critiques - Replies (1)

This is one of the few songs I've written that doesn't sing directly to God.  It's more of a "radio" song.

I'm not great with audio recording/mixing.  I recorded several layers within my keyboard and exported.  And yes, this is not the best quality- there are errors and off notes and such.  But I wanted to throw together what I envision the song to sound like.

Only One Man

How could I make it right
A sinful life of pride
Too much weight, could not escape
The sorrows of this life

He's the answer for our sins
The hope of every man
The light of the world
Dying on the cross
His blood poured out for us
That we might believe
...we might receive
...we might live
Live again

Trying to please the world
I knew I could not win
Nothing I could think or do
Could shake the weight within

Atonement for our sins
Undeserved grace still given
Only one answer
Only one man

Smile First time sharing my songs!
Posted by: Noah Westfall - 02-22-2017, 09:53 PM - Forum: Hello My Name is... - Replies (4)

Hi, my name is Noah Westfall.  I'm a 24 year old Worship Leader in Evansville, IN.  I have been writing on occasion since I was a teenager, but they are finally a little more mature in quality.  I've never really shared any of my songs publicly, but I feel that there is no point in writing it if it can't be used for God's glory.  I have a degree in Film/Video, but am fairly ignorant when it comes to audio editing.  So anything I post on here is really just so you can hear the song and understand the "vibe" I'm going for.  I don't consider myself as having any real style.  I love every style and genre of worship music and take bits and pieces of each to create my own.  I do try to write songs that will actually "sell" or that people will actually sing.  I prefer congregational Praise and Worship, and try to write songs that I would want my church to sing.  Although I have written several songs "about" Jesus or God, my passion is writing songs that talk directly to him.  As I say, let's not just sing songs, let's minister to the Lord.  That'll get ya started for now!

  He's in Control
Posted by: marlinCash42 - 02-22-2017, 08:02 PM - Forum: Lyric Critiques - Replies (1)

there was thunder on my horizon, 
as the rain was coming down,
and the wind was blowing so harshly, 
as lightning was all around,
but i don't fear what i see, 
cause deep inside I know,
no matter what comes my way, 
the masters in control
he's in control.........
when things in life get low....
he's in control......
no matter where I go...
He's in control...
I was lost on the desert
with my way i didn't know
and i was lost upon the blizzards,
where i couldn't see for snow, 
but i met a good friend, 
and he is there for me, 
and no matter where i go in life,
i know that he will be, (chorus)

  Escape Your Precense
Posted by: DaricOliver - 02-22-2017, 11:13 AM - Forum: Song Critiques - Replies (1)

This is one of my favorite songs I have written.  It is more of a rocker.  I am getting to be an old man now as I close in on 50 but I still like it loud. The song is based off of Psalms 139:7. I wrote the music and lyrics on this one, but a friend of mine helped me with a few lyrics.  Definitely an emotive song written from kind of a tough time in my life, but emphasizes God's grace amidst the struggles and questions of life.

  God who created it all
Posted by: Michael Ford - 02-21-2017, 10:00 PM - Forum: Lyric Critiques - Replies (7)

God Who Created It All

Breathe, breathe another breath
You can say there is no reason
But your lungs still pull the air
Believing there is nothing 
Is a lonely way to live

Look into the heavens
Beyond many distant suns
You'll only find one answer
That makes any sense at all
Everything created
By the God who created it all

Listen, listen with your mind
The thoughts that fill your head
Have meaning for a reason
Touch, touch what you can see
This something came from nothing
It all came from the word

Look into the heavens
Beyond many distant suns
You'll only find one answer
That makes any sense at all
Everything created
By the God who created it all

  Faithfullness Rescues Me
Posted by: DaricOliver - 02-20-2017, 10:51 PM - Forum: Song Critiques - Replies (3)

Here is the most recent song I have written, a couple of weeks ago.

I recorded this using Logic Pro.  I am not a vocalist so these are definitely scratch vocals, but hopefully the idea is there.

Thanks for your feedback

  God Is Watching You
Posted by: ronnief63 - 02-20-2017, 09:37 PM - Forum: Song Critiques - Replies (3)

I use Cakewalk Music Creator 7 software in my recording, and this is one that I wrote after discovering a loop on the program..

God Is Watching You

People every day, think they can do what they want,
no one will ever, ever know.
They'll think, I got away, and no one has a clue,
their sins will find them out, wherever they go.


God is watching you, he knows what you do,
he knows what you say, before you say it.
You can think inside, your pleasures you can hide,
remember this my friend, he's watching you.

I know, I've been there, I didn't have a care,
I was living my life so deep in sin.
I was oh so bad, squandered all that I had,
but Jesus gave me peace within.

Repeat Chorus Twice:

Stumbled upon this group in the internet, glad to be here and share music with other Christ-lovers. 

I write songs in my free time, and would love to collaborate with other writers and performers (I'm not a performer myself). 

Some samples of my very raw music, just recorded live using an iPhone:

Blessings to you guys,

  Songwriter from South Bend, Indiana
Posted by: DaricOliver - 02-20-2017, 12:55 AM - Forum: Hello My Name is... - Replies (5)

I am a long time scratch musician and songwriter from South Bend, Indiana.  I have been writing music for over 30 years.  I like all styles from Loud Rock to somber Praise and Worship.  I can carry a tune but I am not a vocalist.  I can plays keys, bass, and guitar but don't really excel at any of them.   I know that I was always meant to be behind the scenes as a writer.  I enjoy the creative element and have spent time in my small studio "Ramped Up Studios" producing scratch demos that I could hopefully to market at some point in time to an artist.  I have five or six tracks on my You Tube Page, Daric Oliver Productions and I have well over 100 songs that I have written from Kids Songs, instrumentals, praise and worship, contemporary, ballads, folk and even some hard rock songs.  I have always felt that God had blessed me with the ability to write, but I have been too selfish and preoccupied to really dedicate myself to it.  So I have become content with getting a cordial Nice Job on my Facebook page and a handful of likes and moving on.   Life is too short to wonder what could have been and I know that I have a responsibility to at least try to use the gift he has given me.

  Light Up The Darkness
Posted by: bob53086 - 02-19-2017, 05:22 PM - Forum: Song Critiques - Replies (1)

Hello all,

Here are the lyrics and SoundCloud link for our new song: Light Up The Darkness



Light up the darkness 

Go show them your light 

So light up the darkness 

And make it shine bright 

Light up the darkness 

Oh run shadows run 

So chase out the darkness 

As Jesus has done 

Just as Je-sus has done 




They live in the darkness and don't see the light 

They struggle to be nice and then curse and fight 

The world has it's troubles but look in the mirror 

And tell me what you see shows Jesus in here 




They yell, scream and protest then riot the streets 

They argue and curse even at the police 

We see in the news all the things they have done 
But what were your actions to show them the Son 

And oh, gotta let your light shine out 
Gotta let your light shine out for all to se-e
