I am a songwriter from Southeast Michigan. I sing most songs--some you hear on this site are sung by a friend and are demos of two of my songs. I would like to collaborate with good singers and musicians. Thanks for listening. Soon I hope to perform regularly at open mics to gain confiedence.

Biography

I write songs in the Folk, Acoustic and Acoustic Country style and some Gospel. I am an ameteur but hope to have someone pick up my songs and perform them. I am self taught and write about love, lost love, life and whole goofy thing. Would love to collaborate and co-write with artists.

Lyrics

Seasons of Change

Written By: Gary M. Taylor

Am C G

Rain's falling heavy
Leaves are coming down
Days are gettin shorter
But the nights are so long

Warm sun is hidden
'Neath a grey autumn sky
North wind is blowin
Got a cold bitter bite

I got a bad situation
Takin hold over me
It won't be too long now
I'll be payin the fee

Seasons they change
And time it will tell
If there's truth to notion
of Heaven or Hell

For me it's a question
Whose time is right now
I gotta figure it out
I gotta do it somehow

The flowers have wilted
Birds took their flight
I'm standing alone now
Facing a fight

Cold winter's grip
Stole summer's embrace
I'm staring reality
Right in the face

Got a warm fire burning
But it's fading fast
Wall's closing in now
Are these days my last

Seasons they change
And time it will tell
If there's truth to notion
of Heaven or Hell

For me it's a question
Whose time is right now
I gotta figure it out
I gotta do it somehow

Jesus he prayed
In Gethsemene
I'm begging you Lord
I'm down on my knees

Help me to weather
This gathering storm
Give me the courage
Help me stay strong

And when it is over
Help my family to see
Let all my friends know
I've been set free

Seasons they change
And time it will tell
If there's truth to notion
of Heaven or Hell

For me it's a question
Whose time is right now
I gotta figure it out
I gotta do it somehow

This life that I've treasured
Will be taken away
I'll be living the good life
Where it's sunny all day

(sing strongly)
And when it is over
Help my family to see
Let all my friends know
Oh I've been set free

Yeah when it is over
Help my family to see
Let all my friends know
I'm living free!!

Deep Sleep

Written By: Gary Taylor/Jody Pear

She's staring at a lifetime
Now a distant memory
Is this her that's leaving now
Is she still asleep

She asks herself who is that man
I thought this was my home
The walls she hoped would shelter her
Became a raging storm

CHORUS

Deep Sleep
Deep Sleep
She's turning now to walk away
She's waking from Deep Sleep
She's learning how to live again
As She wakens from Deep Sleep
Never going back
Never gonna need
Deep Sleep
No, she's never going back again
She's never gonna need
Deep Sleep

Did she see this in a movie
Or read this in a book
She's turning now to walk away
She's finishing the script

Possessions that cause envy
Have no value to her now
The cold white walls inside this place
Chill her to the bone

CHORUS

Kept close at hand and under thumb
She closed her door on life
Denying all she knew was truth
Suffering all the lies

He said he did it all for her
Or was it jealousy
Or was this cruel imprisonment
His way of feeling safe

CHORUS

No matter what she's leaving now
Eyes open from Deep Sleep
The angels voices loud and clear
Are leading her away

She's breathing at a normal pace
No trembling or fear
She's learning how to live again
Deep Sleep is nowhere near

CHORUS (Deep Sleep X3 at end)

What I Want For Christmas

Written By: Gary Taylor

What I Want For Christmas
By Gary Taylor Songwriter
December 12, 2010

What I want for Christmas,,,,Is something money cannot buy.....
It doesn't come in gift wrapped boxes....It's not easily defined....

What I want for Christmas...Doesn't come without a price...
It's right for the taking...Just believe and don't think twice......

.What I want for Christmas....Is to feel my heart at peace...
.For all my fears to disappear...A gift that sets me free..

What I want for Christmas, It's been here all along...
The star shone bright as heaven's light...
Announced my Savior's born....

.What I got for Christmas....Has been here all along...
The star shone bright as heaven's light...Announced my Savior's born....
