Liner Notes: 

Number 22 of 28.

This song happened in a hurry. The performance/recording is a little raw but I literally came up with this right after recording my previous song this evening. When it's rolling, it's rolling.

Lyrics: 

I got the call
A call was made
And now the cards
Have all been played

I heard the call
It made some sense
And so the month
Has been intense

I lived the call
Inside my brain
And what I found
Was lots of pain

THe call is good
The call is fair
The call was made with utmost care
The call is right
The call is true
The call made me think what to do

I talked the call
To all who'd hear
And so it helped
Deal with my fear

I prayed the call
Unto the Lord
And I do know
I'm not ignored

The call is good
The call is fair
The call was made with utmost care
The call is right
The call is true
The call led to the answer new

I made the call
The call was left
And so now some
Are made bereft

The call is good
The call is fair
The call was made with utmost care
The call is right
The call is true
The call led me to stay on through

sounds like you reached some resolution with your decision and yourself. nice song!
I trust its better then 'receiving the call and being put on hold'!, which has happened to me i think Smile

The lyrics are simple, but evocative. Nice strumming, and the vocal delivery is sincere and powerful. Beautiful work.

I am guessing this means a decision has been made and since I cannot tell from the lyrics, I know whatever you chose is the right thing for you! Great song also Biggrin

Terrific lyrics, and nice vocalization of them. I want to listen to them from the back of a bar sometime. Good job!

Nice guitar strum! “The call” is so provocative. In the writing world, it means an agent wants to rep you. Now i’m curious what your call is.

The lyrics are just so so good. It gives a feeling of purpose, and direction. Great song!

53 songs already! You're on a flier!
Can't ignore the call, and the ambiguity of that idea, will mean something to anyone who immerses themselves here.
Really nice idea neatly expressed. Great job. Enjoyed my listen.

I like how this means to you, but also can be interpreted by others for what they want it to mean to them. I like the fast strum, the melody is really catchy.

Really nice job with this one, glad you captured it. I think the rawness of it adds to the feel. It's just catchy enough without becoming an ear worm.
