Keep Your Eyes Open by Kuh De Luna

Hey guys! It was my first time to try and film myself while performing an original composition so my apologies for being so awkward in front of the camera. :p Also, I’m not a pro guitar player so forgive my lapses. I don’t have any proper recording equipment but I will definitely adding those to my future plans. 🙂 I basically play and sing because I love writing songs and I don’t really have a choice but to do it on my own so I could share even just a bit of inspiration through my music to all of you. 🙂

“Keep Your Eyes Open” it’s about sharing a vulnerable moment when you’re facing great difficulties in life whether something hasn’t worked out as planned, maybe you’re going through a painful break-up or you may be feeling drained from a lot of aspects in your life, etc. I wrote this song because like all of you, I also experience these things and yes, feelings get the best of me sometimes. And being in this situation made me think and reflect more on the necessary stuff. When you have so much going on in your head, just pause for a moment and take a breather. For me, crisis comes when we’re traversing with a wrong perspective. I mean, problems and challenges will always be there because a lot of those just come with growing-up. It’s about having a right mindset especially when you feel like the Lord has hidden his face from you. “Keep Your Eyes Open” was not created to ignore the difficulties you have at the moment, but I do hope that somehow when you listen to this song it will make you feel a lot better and instill a brand new hope that you can hold on to. 🙂

“Keep Your Eyes Open” (lyrics)

Chorus:

When those days hit you

Keep your eyes open

When those days hit you

Keep your eyes open

 

Verse 1:

Hey, this is real life!

Hey, gotta wake up!

Never lose your voice

Never lose you faith… in Him.

(Repeat Chorus)

 

Verse 2:

Lots of battle scars

I was convinced that love was real

Though I cannot see you now

But I know you’re there

(Repeat Chorus)

 

Bridge:

Believe me when I say

I had my downfalls too

But I’m eagerly waiting  (4x)

For you (2x)

(Repeat Chorus)

 

I will release a more polished version of this song hopefully soon. Please do comment and tell me your thoughts. Hope you guys can support and I’d love to hear from all of you!

God bless! ❤

Glory (Let There Be Peace) by Matt Maher

 

“Glory (Let There Be Peace)”

One star burns in the darkness

Shines with the promise, Emmanuel

One child born in the stillness

Living within us, Emmanuel

 

Chorus:

We’re singing Glory, Glory

Let there be peace, let it start in me

 

One voice speaks for the voiceless

Hope for the hopeless, Emmanuel

One love brings us together

Now and forever, Emmanuel

 

(Repeat Chorus 2x)

 

Bridge:

Do not be afraid

His love is strong

Enough to save us

Nothing stands in the way

His love is strong

Enough to lead us

(Repeat 2x)

 

We sing Glory, Glory

Let there be peace

Let there be peace

Singing Glory, Glory

Let there be peace

Let it start in me

 

Singing Glory, Glory

Let there be peace

Let there be peace

Singing Glory, Glory

Let there be peace

Let it start in me

 

Let there be peace

Let it start in me

 

 

 

 

 

First by Lauren Daigle

 

“First” (lyrics)

Before I bring my need
I will bring my heart
Before I lift my cares
I will lift my arms
I wanna know You
I wanna find You
In every season
In every moment
Before I bring my need
I will bring my heart
And seek You

First
I wanna seek You
I wanna seek You
First
I wanna keep You
I wanna keep You
First
More than anything I want, I want You
First

Before I speak a word
Let me hear Your voice
And in the midst of pain
Let me feel Your joy
Ooh, I wanna know You
I wanna find You
In every season
In every moment
Before I speak a word
I will bring my heart
And seek You

First
I wanna seek You
I wanna seek You
First
I wanna keep You
I wanna keep You
First
More than anything I want, I want You
First

You are my treasure and my reward
Let nothing ever come before
You are my treasure and my reward
Let nothing ever come before
I seek You

First

First
I wanna seek You
I wanna seek You
First
I wanna keep You
I wanna keep You
First
More than anything I want, I want You
First
First

Even Unto Death by Audrey Assad

 

“Even Unto Death” (lyrics)

Jesus
The very thought of You
It fills my heart with love
Jesus
You burn like wildfire
And I am overcome

Lover of my soul
Even unto death
With my every breath I will love You
Lover of my soul
Even unto death
With my every breath I will love You

Jesus
You are my only hope
And You, my prize shall be
Jesus
You are my glory now
And in eternity

Lover of my soul
Even unto death
With my every breath I will love You
Yeah, Lover of my soul
Even unto death
With my every breath I will love You

In my darkest hour
In humiliation
I will wait for You
I am not forsaken
Oh, I lose my life
Oh, my breath be taken
I will wait for You
I am not forsaken
One thing I desire
To see You in Your beauty

You are my delight
Yeah, You are my only
You have sacrificed
Oh, Your love is all consuming
You are my delight
Yeah, You are my glory
Oh, You are my glory
Oh, You are my glory
Yeah

You’re the lover of my soul
Even unto death
With my every breath I will love You
You’re the lover of my soul
Even unto death
With my every breath I will love You

I will love You
Even unto death, I will love You
With my every breath I will love You
Jesus
The very thought of You
Jesus
The very thought of You

Fierce by Jesus Culture (feat. Chris Quilala)

“Fierce” (lyrics)

Before I call, before I ever cry
You answer me from where the thunder hides
I cannot run, this heart I’m tethered to
With every step I collide with You

Like a tidal wave crashing over me
Rushing in to meet me here
Your love is fierce!
Like a hurricane that I can’t escape
Tearing through the atmosphere
Your love is fierce!

You cannot fail, the only thing I’ve found
Is through it all You never let me down
You don’t hold back, relentless in pursuit
And every turn I come face to face with You

Like a tidal wave crashing over me
Rushing in to meet me here
Your love is fierce!
Like a hurricane that I can’t escape
Tearing through the atmosphere
Your love is fierce!

You chase me down, You seek me out
How could I be lost when You have called me found?
You chase me down, You seek me out
How could I be lost when You have called me found?
You chase me down, You seek me out
How could I be lost when You have called me found?

Like a tidal wave crashing over me
Rushing in to meet me here
Your love is fierce!
Like a hurricane that I can’t escape
Tearing through the atmosphere
Your love is fierce
Your love is fierce
Your love is fierce
Your love is fierce
Your love is fierce

My New Heart by Barbie Almalbis

“My New Heart” (lyrics)

There’s a guy walking by, just walking by
I see you but i’ve gotten used to saying bye
It’s common sense, self-defense
How i made my bed
With a moat around, and castle guards
For the wicked sex

Maybe i like you but i don’t know to trust
I see your beauty you’re a diamond in dust
Maybe i love you but i don’t know enough
Stuck in my castle stuck in my castle

Maybe i like you but i don’t know to trust
I see your beauty you’re a diamond in dust
Maybe i love you but i don’t know enough
Stuck in my castle stuck in my castle

I think i might be many nights beyond repair
But i feel a spark that you ignite
Take me back there

Maybe i like you but i don’t know to trust
I see your beauty you’re a diamond in dust
Maybe i love you but i don’t know enough
Stuck in my castle stuck in my castle

Run For Cover by Barbie Almalbis

“Run For Cover” (lyrics)

When we were so young
did anything our hearts bled
and sold our wonder
and cried about the mess we made

and it’s all over now
but you still see it somehow
and if it’s really gone
oh don’t let dead love live on
no don’t let it live on

and here it comes again
to make you drink
stolen water so sweet
but only til you’ve had it

and it’s all over now
but you still see it somehow
and if it’s really gone
oh don’t let dead love live on
no don’t let it live on

run, run, head for cover

and it’s all over now
but you still see it somehow
and if it’s really gone
oh don’t let dead love live on
