  Whetstone CD Project - Look Upon Me
Posted by: tpistilli - 01-20-2016, 12:29 PM - Forum: Whetstone Project - Replies (2)

This is just a lyric right now. Hopefully will get some music for it. If anyone wants to collab on it, send me a pm.

Look Upon Me 
© 2016 Tony Pistilli


Verse 1: 
I’m Ezekiel’s bones on the dusty dry ground 
Bleached out memories scattered all around 
Every fragment a remnant of the warrior I used to be 
But something’s stirring in me… 
So I’ll prophesy to these old bones 
What’s impossible for me is as easy as breathing 
For the One who died for me and it’s time I finally seek Him 
So I gaze up to the heavens and I pray… 

Chorus: 
Jesus would you look upon me 
With the grace and the fullness of Your love 
You’re the only hope that I need 
Let the breath of Your spirit give me life
I don’t want to be the man that I’ve been 
But the man that You called me to be 
Jesus would you look upon me, would You look upon me 
Jesus would you look upon me 

Verse 2: 
Im in Lazarus’ tomb and my heart’s in decay 
Cold and unmoving from my lack of faith 
While the stench of indifference causes hopelessness and apathy 
But something’s stirring in me… 
‘Cause I believe in the Giver of life 
What’s impossible for me is as easy as breathing 
For the One who died for me and it’s time I finally seek Him 
So I gaze up to the heavens and I pray… 

Bridge: 
When I stumble and fall 
Or give up the call 
When the enemy strikes 
And I’m losing the fight 
When the fire dies down 
Or smothered by doubt 
When I fall on my face 
Or I’m losing the race 
Then I’ll gaze up to the heavens and pray… 

Chorus

  Hello My Name is...etc
Posted by: linmarmusic - 01-20-2016, 12:10 PM - Forum: Hello My Name is... - Replies (10)

Hi Everyone,

Linmarmusic here.  Or rather it's Marty Weeks and Linda Keser.  We were Linmar productions till the crash of 2016 (ha ha) of the old forum.

We will resubmit our songs for the Whetstone Project shortly.  Under the gun now to deal with rent renewal (which means lots of normal work and stuff not music grrr)  

Quick recap:
Linda Keser is my fiancee and the lyricist for our music.  (She brilliant...I ain't prejudiced  :-p)  She is a Born Again Christian.

I'm Marty Weeks... a successfully Recovering Alcoholic and Member of Alcoholics Anonymous (but for the Grace of God) for the past 22 years.   I do the music, mixing and other stuff.

Together we are LinMar.  (here us roar...meow!!)

We write songs across the board for both secular and non publishing.  With of course an emphasis on the Christian Worship/Praise Genre as this is one o f the few medias that actually "Listen to The Messages and Words" of a song.

I'm always aggravated with most of the commercial music today.  Not so much that it's evil, it's just well crappy music production.  I grew up listening to the really truly great musicians, and was blessed to be  able to play with a whole lot of them, so constantly have to wrestle with my conscious over where to draw the line when it comes to writing music for the market and writing music as we want to.  (Business, business, business...yuck)

So this forum is a wonderful respite from all that other worldly yuck. 

Linda is nothing short of the absolute Center of my Life.  I say thank you to God every day for allowing her to come into my life.  She keeps me grounded, and is a never ending source of inspiration, faith, and Love for me.

She has done missionary work, and has always  maintained a rock solid faith and devotion.  Like I said an inspiration to me every day of my life.

She also never before in her life till she met me wrote songs or lyrics.  Wonderful story about that for another thread not here, but since lighting that fire under her seat she hasn't stopped.  I will be 200 years old before I can finish her huge body of works that's flowed out of her since last year.  And she's still writing.  Everything.  Christian Praise, Rock and Roll, Country, R&B, and even commercial jingles for potential video advertising. (We'll see how that turns out)

Okay enough of the "All About Me/Selfie" Stuff as that ain't where this forum is at.  Will re post our songs for the Whetstone Project sometime tomorrow most likely.  Got to get ready for work now.

Glad to be back in the forum.

Peace!

Marty & Linda

This is an original rap song that I helped my good buddy Carl produce.  Most of the talent is his doing, I just helped him record and mix a bit.  Let me know what you think.  I am new at mixing, so any helpful suggestions would be great.

  Hello, ,my name is Tony

Hey all,
My name is Tony Pistilli (tpistilli). I have been playing bass and guitar for many years and have been venturing out the last two years writing songs. My wife and I have been married for 26 years (in Feb) and have 7 adopted kids. CSN has been a great place to hone my writing skill and bounce ideas off of others with more experience. I look forward to reconnecting with the good folks here. It's good to be back to new forum.  I like the look. Great job Beagle - very quick!

It seems to me that adversity often accompanies any attempt to do something good - not that it PROVES you are doing something good, but there are times that it feels like a confirmation. Reese, thank you very much for your work and attention and passion with the forum, and especially in getting it back up.

Whetstone is still running! I'll repost some of the old information but if all of you could repost your songs? And if you could, I would ask you to post a short status of where you are and what you are doing?

  Who do you say I AM
Posted by: SquareElvis - 01-19-2016, 10:11 PM - Forum: Song Critiques - Replies (2)

Who do you say I Am

What do I mean to you
Do I mean more than a song
Do I mean more that a preacher preaching 
When I'm with you all along
I'm with you all week long

Did you know that I
Am waiting here inside 
For you to call out My name
Patiently I'm waiting
For you to want Me


What am I worth to you
Am I worth more than silver or gold
Do you count the cost to follow Me
Or would you rather be alone
To live this life on your own

Did you know that I
Am waiting here inside 
For you to call out My name
Patiently I'm waiting
For you to need Me

Would you say we're friends
Or just acquaintances
You say that you believe in Me
But sometimes I feel that you forget
It's like we never met

Did you know that I
Am waiting here inside 
For you to call out My name
Patiently I'm waiting
For you to love Me


Who do you say I Am
When someone speaks My name
Do you tell them that I'm Your Lord
Or are you too ashamed
Too ashamed to say

Did you know that I
Am waiting here inside 
For you to call out My name
Patiently I'm waiting
For you to believe

To believe that I 
Came here to die
For you to live your life through me
Can't you see just how much 
You mean to Me

Who do you say I Am
Tell me
Who do you say I Am

  This is my Dream, a tribute to Martin Luther King Jr.
Posted by: lolly101 - 01-19-2016, 05:01 PM - Forum: Lyric Critiques - Replies (4)

This is my Dream,
 a tribute to Martin Luther

(verse 1)
There is a dream I have,
I have a dream tonight,
there is a dream I have,
Inside this dreary place, it needs some light,

(Chorus)
This is my dream, This is my dream,
That fathers would kneel down and pray,
Mothers wouldn't need to work all night and day,
Families would stay together come what may,
This is my dream, this is my dream,
The worker would take pride of what they do,
Politicians wouldn't say anything but the true,
every promise would be kept between me and you,
This is my dream, This is my dream,
that the nation would pray again,

(Verse 2)
There is a notion in my head,
if we would do what we say,
every night we would all pray,
if we would let Jesus have His say.
Inside this dreary place, we might have some light,

(Verse 3)
If we would only stand beside God,
On His right side,
If we would ask for forgiveness,
Maybe out of the dirt we might rise,


Thank you for all critiques on this one.
If you would like to hear the sung version follow this link,
