"Right Before My Eyes" #newsong #lorijeanfinnila #singersongwriter

 This is from "My Life's Journey" here that I changed the name and put a clip of it here after practicing the recording for my podcast for this song "Right Before My Eyes." 

This is for the children that watch their mothers die, or are still sitting by their side while they try to recover from abuse.

Dancing In the Clouds #lorijeanfinnila #newsong #singersongwriter

It's hard to believe
There's been a world like
What we've been in (I have to keep slapping myself.)

To feel free 
Able to be alone
With you so close
Right next to me
Dancing with the clouds
It's still amazing to me

I was your hero
I couldn't walk 
in bigger shoes
Or climb any higher
Dancing in the clouds

My mind sits in the clouds
As images cast many
Emotions in my mind
Never forgetting
You close to me

Laying here
Dancing in the clouds
Dancing with the clouds
A world that's made huge
Before my eyes


I can't wait till next time
We dance with the clouds
I look so forward to these times
When you and I were the closest
When I felt the strongest

Show me a life 
 bursting with hope
A world to change us
Bringing hope
I was as high as I could be

"How Lucky I Am" #newsong #lorijeanfinnila #singersongwriter

 How Lucky I Am

Image by StockSnap from Pixabay 

I count one two three 

when I wake up

feeling grateful to see the sun

I look at my pleasurable surroundings

I warm myself

before I move

cherish each step I take

each time I raise my arm

take a drink, one more day

I will plan my time ahead

see how much I can fit

when I start to see black

I’ll still be grateful

that I can sleep tight in bed

I won’t think if there’s one more day

because I’m so tired

I don’t know to think of this

How lucky I am

how lucky I am

how lucky I am

to be lost in such a beautiful space.

My Life’s Journey

I can take your hand

while you cry

not knowing what to do

I still stay by your side

Your hour is long

but I won’t mind

I won’t even know the time

that I’m here

I see your pain

I feel your heart beat

so fast out of your chest

as though you will die

but you still breathe

perhaps you are like a flower

that ascends to the sky

yet never dies

just keeps growing

right before my eyes

please don’t leave me mom

like I’ve seen you almost do so many times

my times with you I don’t even count

i just lay on my side and wait for you to awake

that will be my life journey

"Broken Horse" #newsong #brokenspirit #dominoeffect #thosewithtalenttocommunicate #lorijeanfinnila #singersongwriter

 I think those of us that survive, feel the great need to express the story of the broken horse.

Broken Horse lyrics

Broken Horse


You’re taken down when u speak out

the line starts at the cops with those arrested

Those abused that speak out are warned

Those arrested pick up the slack

Ones that leave to bring strength are chased after

to break their spirit


Run free

before you’re found

before life tames you down

like a broken horse


The steam that gurgles 

as it drowns in our heads, our bodies

takes its last breath

sometimes comes out and survives

from those who have a talent to communicate



The tree has been made

from those that have made a deal

rush in to carry on the domino effect

of the broken spirit
