There's trouble in the west,

and trouble in the east,

there's bad news in the evening,

all the way down

from the greatest to the least.

 

An' ya don't know if you're dyin,

or it's just another phase,

ah you don't know, an' no one knows

is this really the latter days.

 

refrain: Is it just another phase,

or is this  really the latter days.

 

An' the sky it's a'falling,

rivers of tears are everywhere,

in our eyes, and in our skies,

all the warning signs are there.

 

Oh the warning bells are ringing

and angels sound the horn,

as the old days are dy-ying

and the future's tryin to be born.

 

An' the best are the worst,

and the worst are on the throne,

the cathedrals are crumbling,

and the brave have turned and run.

 

There's a war now up in heaven,

there's a battle goin on,

and we don't know who's the enemy

or which side we're fightin on.

That's a haunting melody, Polly. I enjoyed listening. The lyric is tight and interesting. It didn't grab me because of the religious theme (I'm not very religious) but I can appreciate that it's well written. There's quite a few folks here with a more religious outlook. It'll be interesting to hear what they think.

Thanks @gavin. Well, even people who aren't religious these days are kinda wondering. But I know, not everyone can relate to my religious songs.

I use GarageBand, and a not very expensive microphone.

Awesome, so do I! Now, if your guitar/vox are on separate trax we could really get creative 🙂

I know, thanks. But I mostly do simple one-track recordings, because I want to know how I sound at open mics. I have done a lot of multi-track, because I like to add other instruments. But for now I just want to know how I sound.

(Some edits to consider. Those 'and' Line openers mainly.)
There's trouble in the west.

There's trouble in the east

There's bad news in the evening,

all the way down

from the greatest to the least.

 

Ya' don't know if you're dyin,

or it's just another phase.

ah you don't know, an' no one knows. (Emphasize the word 'you')

Is this, really the Latter Days. (Emphasize 'this')

 

refrain: Is it just another phase,

or is this,  really the Latter Days.

 

The sky it's a'falling.

Rivers of tears are everywhere,

in our eyes, and in our skies,

all the warning signs are there.

 

Oh the warning bells are ringing.

Angels sound the horn,

as the old days are dy-ying

and the future's tryin' to be born.

 

refrain: Is it just another phase,

or is this,  really the Latter Days.

 

The best are the worst,

and the worst are on the throne.

The cathedrals are crumbling.

The brave have turned and run.

 

There's a war now up in heaven.

There's a battle goin' on.

We don't know who's the enemy

or which side we're fightin' on.

refrain: Is it just another phase,

or is this,  really the Latter Days.

 

Despite 1,000's of years of Songwriting humans have not exhausted the possibilities. There will always be another Song to be written. Someone will write it. Why not you? www.garyeandrews.com
