Original Song – “Love And Life”

Love And Life is a fast paced and driven song about walking in the truth, recapturing the innocence of youth and walking in the light of Christ.  It’s about getting lost in the living of life and trying to return to basics while there’s still time.  So often in this modern world, we find ourselves going through the motions of marching to someone else’s drummer and waking up to the notion that there has to be something better – something more – something true, innocent and real.  We find ourselves lost in the darkness of life and need to seek out the light… “Days will come, days will go, but you know it’s hard to ever know, If the road we’re walkin’ is the truth, Have we lost the innocence of youth, How will we know what to do, It’s up to me and you…”

“Love And Life” is another song from Set 2 that I recorded in 1996 using my Fender Strat, and it speaks to the twists, turns, ups and downs of life’s winding road as we all walk towards our own personal truth ~ enjoy! ♡ 🙂 Mark
