In the early stages of my music ministry with Pastor Don Yarborough, I was asked to perform at the Oneonta College Campus coffeehouse.   Having a few days before the gig to think about it, I found myself considering the kind of audience that might receive me there.   This is the song that manifested.

It represents what I want to say to people who don't yet know what it's like to be "born again" ... who haven't yet seen the difference between seeking satisfaction and finding it.

Here's a picture of Pastor Don Yarborough and I (sitting on the couch) working on some lyrics for a song:

Alan and Don - 1981-82
P.S. - I'm using an open D tuning on the guitar for this one: D A D F# A D ... but it's tuned down a whole-step, making it C G C E G C instead ... an Open C Tuning.
