I was in a dark period of my life two years ago, stressing about the unknown future. The constant support from family members and friends were what brought me through that period. I wrote the main melody for this piece shortly after, with the intention to pass on the support to anyone who might need it in their darkest time. Now I have the music skill to expand the melody into a full choral piece. The idea is to have the main self-doubting voice be accompanied by other voices (by friends, if you will) during the breakthrough.
The software I use cannot sing the lyrics, so I recommend opening the Noteflight website to see the lyrics with interactive music playback. Also, I’ll ask the choir that I’m in to practice and perform this. Hopefully they will agree.
