Liner Notes: 

This is the antithesis to Andy Getch’s seed song “Forgiveness and Hope” in The Auntie-Sin game.

His song had sparse lyrics, finger picking and slides on a resonator guitar. So, I opted for simple strum and lengthy lyrics that turned the seed song upside down. Hope you enjoy....If my video doesn’t load, be patient...this is new to me and I may head back to just doing a sound recording, but I thought I would give it a try.

Lyrics: 

I’ve been washed clean out in nature
As the summer storm caught me off guard
I’ve been washed clean of my worries
Oh, I wonder why we’ve tried so hard.
If you need a friend I’ll still be here.
Don’t prolong an end because of fear....

The thunder told the lightning
The lightning hit that tree
And the raindrops kissed my forehead
With a message just for me.

I’ve been washed clean out in nature
As the summer storm caught me off guard
I’ve been washed clean of my worries
Oh, I wonder why we’ve tried so hard
If you need a friend, I’ll help you out
Don’t stay with me if you’re feeling doubt.

The headlines tell us stories
And the stories harm our souls
‘Cause the teardrops keep on coming
Make life seem out of control

I’ve been washed clean out in nature
And I’m seeing clearly how to love
Repentance, like the thunder,
Comes from new sparks in clouds above

I’ve been washed clean.
I’ve been washed clean.
I’ve been washed clean...



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

couldn't load the vid but lovin' the lyrics here. I'm getting a very heartfelt vibe here.

I love the flow of this: I’ve been washed clean out in nature
And I’m seeing clearly how to love
Repentance, like the thunder,
Comes from new sparks in clouds above

I've always felt that nature cleans me and shows me true love too!

Hey Colleen - I've just done a synthesis of your lyrics with Andy's song for the anti syn challenge. Was a blast. Thanks for the inspiration!

This is really lovely. I want to listen - get some music up here please. I particularly like the part about the thunder, lightning, tree, etc.
