All That I Know

Author’s Note: My response today is my first ever attempt at a song! Now, please understand I am not at all a musical person, aside from loving to listen to it! I cannot sing and cannot play an instrument other than drums! For some, reason as I was contemplating my response to my own prompt (weird in itself!) the song lyrics and tune just materialised in my brain. I have had a go at putting the chorus to some simple piano and recorded the full song a cappella (I have included links at the end of the post)

Warning: My singing is truly terrible but no point having lyrics if you can’t imagine the tune. Apologies in advance for your eardrums 😃 I’m having a brave and bold moment by putting it out there in the first place! Lol

CHORUS
Oh yes it’s time, oh yes it’s time,
Oh yes it’s time oh yes it’s ti-me.
Oh yes it’s time, oh yes it’s time,
For all that I know.

When I, when I was a young girl,
I thought that life, that life would be ea-sy.
But then, I found my own way,
And the world it got real ha-zy.

My mu-mma, she said now wee one,
Just take things day by day.
I tried to do what she said,
But I found myself in my own way.

CHORUS
Oh yes it’s time, oh yes it’s time,
Oh yes it’s time oh yes it’s ti-me.
Oh yes it’s time, oh yes it’s time,
For all that I know.

I drank the words of poi-son,
My head sang to my soul.
I knew that she was lyin’,
But I still believed it all.

Then I, then I went a seekin’
To see what I could find,
Drink, some drugs, some feel good,
But all I lost was my mind.

CHORUS
Oh yes it’s time, oh yes it’s time,
Oh yes it’s time oh yes it’s ti-me.
Oh yes it’s time, oh yes it’s time,
For all that I know.

New hope is hard to come by,
When things get so bad you see,
We
don’t want to admit it –
That fear that you, could be m-e.

So you just keep a walkin’
And never me, you mind,
My presence is forgotten,
My fate, my fate has been signed.

Oh yes it’s time, oh yes it’s time,
Oh yes it’s time oh yes it’s ti-me.
Oh yes it’s time, oh yes it’s time,
For all that I know.

Oh yes it’s time, oh yes it’s time,
Oh yes it’s time oh yes it’s ti-me.
Oh yes it’s time, oh yes it’s time,
For all that I know.

Oh Lord,
Please save my soul.

  1. Wow! I’m blown away by two things: That you stepped out and did this; and, that you have been vulnerable in the process. I loved it. I don’t want to be presumptuous, but as a lover of the blues, and including gospel blues, this resonates with that genre for me. Deep stuff. thanks for sharing. 🙂

  2. Well done and extra points for totally upping the game, by completely taking a leap of faith and following your heart as it was leading you in answering your own prompt! Talk about firsts on so many fronts! Well done indeed – you are a brave and creative soul – great stuff 😀
