Brings back memories of me plucking on my pink plastic piano as a toddler..... #lorijeanfinnila #God #recording #freemusic

Though I felt close to God when being beaten close to death during abuse from my stalker I prayed for him to let me remain. Please feel free to download the song as well as the others under the "Am I Awake" album leaving it as .0 cents.

Close to God by Lori Jean Finnila

Brings back memories of me plucking on my pink plastic piano as a toddler the piano sounding like bells, fairies....

Close to God lyrics

Verse
I'm up one more day
The sun is shining
though I don't feel
as connected as others do
I'm still so grateful

Bridge
I feel I have much to do
I feel his message
I  fight to put into words
the meaning of my existence

Chorus
I feel so close to God
But I don't want to reach him too soon
Please tell him to love me
And let me remain

Verse
Another Sunday I can't make it to church
though I connect with those that perish
on a daily basis

Chorus
I feel so close to God
But I don't want to reach him too soon
Please tell him to love me
And let me remain

So close to God......
I feel so close to God

I Hold My Breath Before I Speak #abuse #lorijeanfinnila #singersongwriter #freemusic

My Odyssey

You take everything, from me
my food, a place to sit
As I sit closed
in the window

I hold tight to my odyssey
to my wars
until I return home
return home

My choices are limited
I hold my breath
before I speak, move, or make a decision
How is this lucky?

(I know we've all felt this before.) #lorijeanfinnila #singersongwriter #freemusic #COVID19 #relief

"Flying" #recording #lorijeanfinnila #singersongwriter #freemusic #dandelions

I finally found a universal song in all the mess in my mind. It's certainly not that it came from mess, but, alas, I was able to convert it for everyone universally. Make it into what you want in your mind.

Much love.

Lori Jean Finnila

Flying (free music) Still not in the studio, so bear with me. This came out pretty good too though.

Recording "Am I Awake" #newsong #lorijeanfinnila #singersongwriter

I wrote this album from pain but in a universal way. I just added the final for now of "Am I Awake" making the album name this track. I hope you enjoy it.

Am I Awake #new #lyrics #lorijeanfinnila #singersongwriter

I thought to pick this song up and publish it after listening to a song by Ed Sheeran where I could connect with my lyrics, yet subside its actual content where it can be universal. I'm glad I did and another learning step toward my music.

Am I Awake

Verse
I know you want me or control me
I just want to put it away
and get lost in the music....

Chorus
Am I here
Am I awake
I take one step away
and I don't feel the pain

Verse
I feel it would be better
to let go of the past
and make beauty of a bad situation

Chorus
Am I here
Am I awake
I take one step away
and I don't feel the pain

Am I really here
I'm in shock again
Am I awake
Or am I dreaming

Verse
We fight to keep it quiet
but why do we have to do this
blood bursts till it spills over
quiet screams to no one

Chorus

Adding to Simplicity Album #lorijeanfinnila #singersongwriter #album #coronavirus #staystrong #domesticviolence

I picked four songs that I felt go well with my Simplicity album at bandcamp. Please follow along as I work on these when hopefully this fog in my throat clears as our air gets better.


They are as follows:

Rise Above with special thanks to Minor2Go Music

Verse
When I write my hand hurts
When I think my head aches
My eyes blur
when this happens
all I feel …..are the nerves

Chorus
You are the beast of heaven
though I'm feeling bruised,
torn and braised
I will rise above with you

Verse
I'm bouncing
When I'm happy with joy
I feel I'm blessed
when I feel I can anticipate
your direction
and knowing where I'm at
when..... you're around

Chorus

Verse
I can walk though it hurts
I can stand tall
though when I ride
it feels I'm falling
every time I come back.... again

Bridge
There's no sense of this direction
I know fate has its purpose
I was meant to see you
and be with you in.... every way

Chorus

I will rise above and sit beside you




Tears Turn
by Lori Jean Finnila with special thanks to  Minor2Go Music
 

Verse
Please love, listen to me....
I was raised not to talk
about all the things done
It seems hard to function.

Chorus
I could sit down and cry
till my tears turn to falls
or I can pick myself up
and joy that is meant for me right now

Verse
The farmers boots don't hurt me
The free food, gas and water I don't mind
I just want to put everything in a box
where I feel there's no harm

Chorus

Verse
I could look deeper than what's necessary
or see what's in front of me
I can't think of one day without you
You brought my life and happiness back to me

Bridge
I'm sorry for the pasts that's burdened me 
has left you at times all alone.
I get ridiculed for my cutting words
my flesh too botched for heaven

Chorus
I could sit down and cry
my tears turn to falls
repeat




Verse
I see the man
stand still in the park
park is empty
I know there is more too

Chorus
This day is more important everyday
I feel this to you
from the message from above
and inside of me

Verse
Another stares with a frown
the humble reaches
for a question to be answered
all is fine
I'm right here with you

Chorus

Verse
I know you're scared
But I'm scared too
I listen to all the comments
trying to reach to you

Bridge
My mind has never been taken so far
even with all the tiniest darkest corners of our world
just takes a moment to forget this
when I can still feel
the warm hand in mine

Chorus

I'm right here with you
right here with you
I'm right here with you
right here with you



My Odyssey
Way Too Early
So Close to God
I'll Stand Strong
Leave This World

"Flying" by Lori Jean Finnila #newsong #lyrics #staystrong #stayhome #lorijeanfinnila #singersongwriter

Flying

Verse
I feel the dark spaces
inbetween my head
There's no air
For me to breathe in

Chorus
I am flying high
I'm flying low
I'm flying alone
Which thing should I turn into
Which way should I walk into

Verse
The quiet, the small looking pebbles in my view surrounded by blue
The deepest darkest color
you could ever imagine
Almost beautiful too

Chorus
I am flying high
I'm am flying low
I am flying alone
Which thing should I turn into
Which way should I walk into

Verse
It's all already been answered
Unfortunately to me
I just have to get it
The way I need to be

Bridge
It's solemn as it's always been
There's no changing to this

Chorus
I am flying high
I'm am flying low
I am flying alone
Which thing should I turn into
Which way should I walk into

Simplicity #updated #release #lorijeanfinnila #singersongwriter

Simplicity is in review again possibly delaying its release date because of cover issues. I just fixed it and hope that the date will concur to the original release date. I've attached a copy of the mastered song from my google drive for those not wanting to wait until its release. Once again happy times for you and yours and I hope you're staying safe. I reiterate I felt this was a good time to release this song of emotion and love that we all feel as vulnerable human beings.

Simplicity download

I also have it at my bandcamp music artist page for free. Song is registered with BMI for media outlets.
