I needed to hear a tranquil prayer like this song this afternoon. It's so gentle from start to finish, so sincere. The heartfelt wish of a man to leave behind a better place. All you need for a song like this is a simply picked guitar and a sweet, clear vocal and this guy nails it. No need to overproduce a great song like this. It stands alone just fine. I really like the bridge - that statement about selfish motives really hits the mark.

    - Kate Carpenter

What a superb song! with the technology these days, it's so easy to over complicate arrangements but this was absolutely spot on. The vocal was as near to perfect as you could have got. I loved it!!

Lyrics

Song - A Better Place.

Verse #1
In a world laced with beauty and with grace,
I've had my share of heartache through the years.
It took time for understanding to take shape,
Lessons learned helped to justify the tears.

(chorus)
When my time comes and it's my turn to go,
I want everyone, to realize and know.
My fellow man I strived so to embrace,
Hopin' to leave behind, a better place.

verse #2
I've walked the weaving paths of wasted time,
Blind with pride life became an endless maze.
The scales of indifference then from my eyes,
My new vision led me on to righteous ways.

(chorus)
When my time comes and it's my turn to go,
I want everyone, to realize and know.
My fellow man I strived so to embrace,
Hopin' to leave behind, a better place.

(bridge)
The well of life is deep,
And will always try to keep.
Its mysteries hidden from,
Those whom with selfish motives seek.

(instrumental)

(chorus)
When my time comes and it's my turn to go,
I want everyone, to realize and know.
My fellow man I strived so to embrace,
Hopin' to leave behind, a better place.
Just hopin' to leave behind a better place.
