I Don’t Know (Original Song)

As some of you know, I love writing and recording music. I wrote my first song when I was 11 years old and sometimes received bad grades in high school because I spent most of my time in class writing poetry and music.

My best music often flows from times of darkness in my personal life. Writing music helps me process my emotions and commit them to God. I strongly considered not releasing this song because it’s almost too authentic and raw. Nevertheless, here it is. My hope & prayer is that you connect with it. This song is completely original – it was written, recorded, and mixed by me.

[Chorus]
Let me tell you where I’m at
I, hope I can climb back
Here’s, my soul on a live track
I, don’t know where I’m at

[Verse 1]
I don’t keep a journal, I have music though
I take the pain then I make it so beautiful
I’m in a dark place I just pray that you use it though
It’s unusual, the things inside my mind
Been day-dreaming ’bout going back to a 9 to 5
To take all of my ministry and just throwing it to the side
I don’t know why, well actually I do
I just want to hide from all the pain that I’ve been through
Disillusioned and confused partly by the news
And partly by the people in the pews who just consume
What do I do? I don’t know
I feel my soul growing cold as I try to cope
Being pulled to self-medicate with a false hope
So here’s a small note just to get this off my chest
And everything I wrote is so you know that I’m a mess
And I don’t know where to go to deal with all this stress

[Chorus]
Let me tell you where I’m at
I, hope I can climb back
Here’s, my soul on a live track
I, don’t know where I’m at

[Verse 2]
Yeah, I’m disillusioned with the Christian church
Full of hatred & division – we don’t listen first
They said that “Black Lives Matter” and we’re feeling hurt?
So we yell “Trump 2020” go and get the hearse
It’s ridiculous, we’re preaching politics
I’ve come dangerously close to call it quits
Cuz I don’t get where I fit in with all of this
Even as I write this song it’s coming with a risk
But I refuse to be a puppet for an audience
So go and put me on your list, that is a-okay
Romans 1:16 I’m still unashamed
But I feel the pain of all the things that I need to say
So I will bleed today, through my written word
Praying that my God will come administer
The hope & healing that I need as a minister
The hope & healing that I need as a minister

[Chorus]
Let me tell you where I’m at
I, hope I can climb back
Here’s, my soul on a live track
I, don’t know where I’m at

  1. Connected! I listened to your song while reading the text at the end I looked up Romans 1:16. I read and listed to Romans 1 completely. then I read the song from the bottom up. Every line. Every line in the song was a story of it’s own! BOOM Danke
