J. & the Talents – Julianna

Hey all! This is a song I recently wrote. I don’t write songs about girls very often, so it’s a little bit of a different subject for me (how many songwriters can say that?)

Hope you enjoy!

J. & the Talents – Save Yourself

Here’s the newest song I wrote. I kind of wrote it as a story about having a conversation with God, asking Him the age-old question of how exactly can we reach salvation. I’ll put the lyrics below the video, so you can dissect the lyrics if you want. Let me know what you think!

Verse 1

When will the rain come extinguish the flame

When will the wind come blow our pains away

Old man sits by my side, says don’t you worry my son

Got a cure for the lonely, broken hearted one

Chorus

Said don’t you try to save yourself (x4)

My boy now don’t you try

Verse 2

The man said to heed his word, and follow all he told

Told a cure for the broken, said to save your soul

Said to quit chasing perfection, in a try to outrun shame

Quit judging your brother, start loving all the same

Chorus

Verse 3

We all chase perfection, when it’s given free of charge

Unwilling to accept it, till we see the scars

Those holes left in His hands, the thorns upon his head

His ransom for true freedom, carpenter three days dead

Bridge

But if I try, and if I fail

If I find that I’m unable

Can I fall down on my face

Praise you for your unearned grace

Chorus 2

I can’t try to save myself (x4)

My God now won’t You try
