Best in Me

Bryan van Putten Writer's BlockI'd been struggling with a severe case of writer's block for a while now. The last song I'd written was "I'll Testify" and that was sometime back in late August or early September. On Saturday night I decided to put an end to this dry spell once and for all (or at least for the coming week). I assembled the necessary tools (pen, paper, guitar) and lit a few small candles. About 4 hours later I had a song.

It's called Best in Me. The original challenge, was that I'd try to film and edit a music video all in the same night (I like to push myself..or punish myself..depending on how you look at it haha). Unfortunately, I had to be up very early the next morning and by the time I finished the music, I had a hard time keeping my eyes open. So I had to cut my losses and be happy with just a finished song lol. Oh well.... Check out the demo and let me know if you like it. Laters!

Lyrics: Best in Me

I call to the sea, when I long to be swept away 
Oh carry me gently across the water
Yet if I'd sink the bottom and find myself free
I'd come back for more 'cause surrender's too easy

So here I stand
Try and take me if you can
So here I am
Bringing out the best in me
The best in me

I look to the sky for some rain and comfort
I've fought all my life and at times I do tire

So here I stand
Try and take me if you can
So here I am
Bringing out the best in me
The best in me

I lie to myself sometimes, that I should let things be
But I know I am meant for more, I just can't let it go

So here I stand
Try and take me if you can
So here I am
Bringing out the best in me
The best in me
