Liner Notes: 

I wrote this over a month ago, but changed a few things and added a bridge. Needs music and vocals.

Lyrics: 

Our Souls Have Always Been Known
© 2020 Cindy Prince

When life is uncertain
And feels like a burden
Please don't lose hope

When nights are too long
Know that you're strong
And that you can cope

Your ancestors before you
Would try to implore you
Yes, they hear you cry

They had such hard lives
Figured how to survive
And they're still nearby

Chorus
All throughout time
There's been sorrow and grief
But it is my belief
That we're not alone
All throughout history
There's been trials and misery
But our souls have always been known
Yes, our souls have always been known

Bridge
When it's darker than dark
Remember there's a spark
Hoping to light the way

They buried loved ones
Tried not to succumb
Found strength in prayer

They kept going forward
Kept pushing onward
With such burdens to bear

Repeat chorus



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

I love this one! You are a great writer. I am a person who talks to my ancestors. Last night, as I drifted off to sleep, I asked them to give me a sign that they hear me. Then, I see your song today...

Lots of good reason never to give up here. Very inspiring. I look forward to hearing a musicified version of this, Cindy, which I'm sure will come. Let me know when one is done. I'll come listen. Hugs, my friend.
