about

This song was inspired by a talk given at Unity Church in Albany by Heather Diddel. She told a story about a day when she literally heard a voice that said, "Heather. When are you going to do what you came here to do?" and then later... "Heather. When are you going to BE who you came here to be."

I think the tears that started streaming down my face were an indication that HER message was a message I was ready to hear as well as to start taking MASSIVE action on.

I came here to share these songs with you. And that's what I'm a gonna keep doing! - Mark

lyrics

There’s A Drum In The Distance
Song #511 | January 2016 | Tuning: DADGAD | Inspired by Heather Diddel

There’s a drum in the distance
There’s a drum right here (repeat)
When are you gonna do
What you came here to do? (repeat)

There’s a light in the distance there’s a light right here
When you gonna shine, they way you came here to shine?

There’s a truth in the distance, there’s a truth right here x 2
when you gonna say what you came here to say?x2

There’s a dream in the distance, there’s a dream right here when you gonna build what you came here to build?

There’s a love in the distance, there’s a love right here x2
when you gonna love you who came here to love?

There’s a drum in the distance, there’s a drum right here (repeat)
When you gonna Be who you came here to BE? (repeat)

about

Mark Shepard Albany, New York

Welcome to my “Life In Song” project.

Since 1976, I’ve been obsessively and compulsively writing songs. Some of them are inspired by my own life, my attempts to understand love, life, spirituality, peace and justice.

While I recently have started to get a little recognition, you’ve probably never heard my songs ANYWHERE.

But now you can hear them... here... Download. Share. Thanks!
