Your Kingdom Come

This is a recording of a song I wrote recently. Here are the lyrics:

Your Kingdom Come

Kingdom of misfits
Fellowship of fools
The company you’re keeping
Breaks all the rules

We say we accept you
And just hate your friends
Betrayed with a kiss is
How that story ends

You were teaching us we must care
For those who have traits we don’t share
People we’d be sure to see there
When the kingdom comes

You preached a kingdom
With room for us all
A place of healing
After our fall

We’ve prayed for its dawning
Thought we saw it loom
Oh why did you promise
It would be here soon?

Some still speak as though the time’s near
Some live every day in deep fear
Some pray even now through their tears
Let your kingdom come

No more just waiting
We start to build
Through our own hands see
Your vision fulfilled

A place of safety
Welcome and peace
Kindness and mercy
Love and release

Your kingdom come
Your will be done
Your kingdom come
Your will be done

By the way, when I share recordings of songs I’ve written, do I need to flag these as “demo versions” each time, lest someone judge them as though they were supposed to be a polished and perfected version, of the sort someone might release on an album? I recorded the instrumental track at home on a small keyboard without a sustain pedal hooked. I think the piano part really needs to be played on an actual grand piano for it to sound the way I want it to. So as I said, this is a demo version. Hope you enjoy it!
