Americana Desperado


Life has challenges and there are times when those who loves us don't meet our needs or there are times when we don't feel loved by them. This song is saying on days like that, I close my eyes and I find rest in the Arms of God.

Douglas Haines, composed the music and recorded the song.

My daughter asked me to write a song for her and she gave me instruction of what she wanted the lyrics to say more or less and this was the result of her request.
I’ve asked, why me, many times.
More on days I didn’t want my troubles.
I longed to go back to carefree times.
When life seemed as easy as blowing bubbles.

But when I start to feel denied.
I simply close my eyes.

I’m resting in the arms of God,
And I’m wanted and sheltered.
It’s peaceful in the arms of God,
And that’s all I need to remember.

I felt crushed and rejected.
Excuses told me, no one was to blame.
But that made me feel defeated.
Although it didn’t really put out my flame.

There are painful reminders.
Forgetting doesn’t seem to come easy.
It’s hard to simply wear blinders.
But all that matter is the way love sees me.
