The Sarah Project Experience - DAY 3

IF I WAS GOD*

This concept came to me as I listened to the stories of someone close to me. Sometimes my writing comes from a place of empathy. This was what I imagined myself feeling and saying as I experienced her situation vicariously. It came easy though because it is what I wished I had said several times in my own situations as an older teen/young adult. I hate that I can think of such amazingly clever things I SHOULD have said AFTER the opportunity has passed. LOL

I actually created a different version of this song at the time that the concept came to me. I re-vamped it for The Sarah Project because I feel so strongly about this concept but when I listened back to the original version it dragged a little for this project and didn't fit the direction everything else seemed to be heading. I needed it in the journey though so I decided a re-work was in order.

I'll link the original here just for ya-ya's. It is raw...not pro mixed... absolute artist vulnerability. We are officially real friends now.  :-D  I can't imagine it will ever be heard publicly outside of this occasion so this is definitely an exclusive. LOL 

I'm going to put the player for that version at the very bottom of this page so we don't mix up the versions. If you want to hear it, go alllll the way to the bottom to check it out. The current version is the one up top (under the picture if desktop and under "...Experience Day 3" if mobile.

IF I WAS GOD

Hook

If I was God I would love you anyway

But since I am not, I'll be leaving you today

If I was God I would give you a second chance

But since I am not, I just can't, no I can't

Verse 1

Oh it cuts deep

And it's so far down you know I 

Can't reach

And it won't stop -- I just let my

Soul bleed

And the pain's strong all because of you

All because of you

Hook

If I was God I would love you anyway

But since I am not, I'll be leaving you today

If I was God I would give you a second chance

But since I am not, I just can't, no I can't

Post

I just can't, I can't...

I just...I just can't, I can't...

I just can't, I can't...

I just...I just can't, I can't...

Verse 2

Why would I put my heart

Into your hands? Wasn't thinking --

That part

So I paid in tears and that's when 

You start

To explain but I can't hear a thing no,

I can't hear a thing, no

If you seek redemption

Well then I am not the one to come to

Thought I tried, I got nothing for you

Can you blame me?

I am only human

I am only human

But...

Hook

If I was God I would love you anyway

But since I am not, I'll be leaving you today

If I was God I would give you a second chance

But since I am not, I just can't, no I can't

Post

I just can't, I can't...

I just...I just can't, I can't...

I just can't, I can't...

I just...I just can't, I can't...
