Keep The Faith

Story Behind The Song

In spite of recurring throat problems due to laryngitis, this needed to be written and performed to a deadline for a project based around "Hope". Consequently, the vocals are not as strong as they could be. Hoping to update it when the vocal cords have improved.

BPM: 84
Key: C to D

Verse 1
These are tough times - don't we know it
Tough times - with more to come
It is no crime - to be worried people
But we got to get this done.

Chorus 1
Keep the faith - this, will not, last forever
Keep the faith - in love, we will succeed
Keep the faith - but we, gotta pull together
Hope and community is what we need

Verse 2
It's not uncool - to do the right thing
And it's so cool - to help each other out
You are no fool - left or right wing
Get together, help each other out

Chorus 2
Keep the faith - this will not last forever
Keep the faith - in love we will succeed
Keep the faith - but we gotta pull together
Hope and community is what we need

Bridge
There's people out there scraping by on next to nothing
They may not share your political views
They need a future, they don't need discussions
There road to freedom needs a little help from you

Chorus 3
Keep the faith - this will not last forever
Keep the faith - with love we will succeed
Keep the faith - but we must pull together
Hope and community is what we need

Chorus 4
Keep the faith - this will not last forever
Keep the faith - and you know we will succeed
Keep the faith - but we got to stick together
Hope and community is what we need
Hope and community is what we need
Hope and community is what we need

I liked this tune very much! You captured the idea of "pressing on" in a very encouraging way. Nice job!

Bob, honestly, I don't have much critics on this one.

Loved the intro, and outro is really great.
The bridge is very well conducted. The balance of the mix is really really good: the sound of drums are KILLER, as well as the bass line.

Back vocals, OMG, a treat :-)
This is a type of slow beat in country that differs from I usually here, so original point for you. Lyrics are inspiring. One word: BRAVO.

Another good tune my friend!

Good luck with this.... I know you don't think your voice is all that great but... you did GOOD!!

Bob this song is awesome. I saw an opportunity open here on Broadjam that is looking for this song. Everything about it is so good. The only thing I would suggest is to bring up the background vocal on the chorus just a smidge more to the front.

Good luck with with very well written, well produced song!

Great timely concept. The instrumentation and mix are top notch. I feel that the lead vocal performance could be a little more impassioned given the subject matter
