NEAR TO ME DEMO #2: Original Song: Arabella Gordon 6.5.12 Biblical images such as the Prodigal son, Elijah's cave, Jonah's whale & the enemy that wars against our soul, along w/ the verse promising that 'IF WE DRAW NEAR TO GOD, HE WILL DRAW NEAR TO US' will be instantly recognized by anyone w/basic Bible knowledge. However, there's nothing that limits this song as Christian. What this really is...is a love song! Because I intended for it to be sung to God, the one thing I omit that is everpresent in all love songs is the word, "BABY".

Now, this love song tells of wayward lovers returning. That's what a child of God that was once in love w/Jesus & has fallen away does: she returns. But the love story also encompasses the Adam & Eve relationship which is a picture of Christ & the Church, His Bride; &the powerful & passionate emotions thate fuel both pictures of love, purposed & ordained by God.

The key is easy, since most church attenders are not pro-quality vocalists. Crucial points to make the song cohesive are the use of suspended 2, add 2 chords; m79 &M7. The intervals try to match the lyric & emotion. In the first line, the melody inflates upward as the space of time grows wider, punctuating the time-distance of wayward seasons. The rhymes are not obvious & the words are not collegiate, since most folks don't do well w/prolific vocabularies.
