This is a special song-only episode featuring a song I started many years ago and finally finished.  It has a lot to say, so I'll simply post the lyrics: Newspaper hit the doorstop of my heart this morning, Headline read, another ten dead, Shot by a kid, who was wrong in the head, It’s easier to make believe it’s make-believe, It’s easier to pretend it’s just pretend, It’s easier to imagine it’s just the imagination of the man at the radio station, Rather than the messed up mind of the boy with the gun in his hand, It’s easier to make believe it’s make-believe… Newspaper hit the doorstop of my heart this morning, Headline read, thousands now dead, When I ask what for, they say another war, It’s easier to make believe it’s make-believe, It’s easier to pretend it’s just pretend, It’s difficult to imagine the imagination of the man at the highest position, Thinking it’s a grand idea to keep sending more boys with guns in their hands It’s easier to make believe it’s make-believe… Newspaper hit the doorstop of my heart this morning, Headline read, a million are dead, In a country where we had the cure to spare It’s easier to make believe it’s make-believe, But some choose to pretend it’s just pretend, Empirical evidence isn’t as real as what I feel and what I read on my newsfeed Tells me that I is more important than we It’s easier to make believe it’s make-believe, It’s easier to pretend it’s just pretend, And ‘guns don’t kill people, people kill people’ They say as they pray as they peep through the keyhole And wait to come out till the murder-suicide… blood has dried It’s easier to make believe it’s make-believe… It’s easier to pretend it’s just pretend, …unfortunately this is not the end …Fade out If you are moved by this song please share it.  You can also play it... it is Capo 7: Am,C,G,D --Lightning Lucas-- Sunday 5/15/2022 For more info see other episodes at holdthatnote.net --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/holdthatnote/message

Start the process of commissioning a song by emailing Lucas@LightningLucas.com or calling (FivForZeero-746-0398) While you listen to the sizzle reel, think of what song you'd like in your life.  Here is the beginning of the script: Hi I’m Lightning Lucas, and I got that name by being struck by lightning and surviving, and now I’m a musician who writes songs for a living and I also host a weekly musical podcast!  It’s called Hold That Note (visit Holdthatnote.net) Today I’m walking you through my sizzle reel of songs I’ve done for specific people or events and of course those I’ve done on commission as well.  Let’s dive in with a snippet from my 2018 classic ‘Hold The Hope.’ Here’s what Diane from Iowa had to say: “I commissioned a song from Lucas as part of a project to create a training program for Peer Support Specialists. He listened carefully to the thoughts and ideas of our team and honored them in his creative process. He kept me apprised of his progress and met the required deadlines.  It was a pleasure to work with Lucas and we couldn't be more pleased with the end product.” [Clip from Hold The Hope ft. C.S. Hurst and Nichole Barrows] For the full script of the sizzle reel visit: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1HhbiVm-tMlI4r2av3dcYVke96XgxbFxxk75Ye4PnnUo/edit?usp=sharing Here’s a quote from folk musician extraordinaire John McCutcheon. He says: “Amidst the flood of new singer-songwriters out there, every once in a great while someone makes me stop and listen. I never miss a chance to hear another Lightning Lucas song. You shouldn’t either.” Trent Wagler of The Steel Wheels had this to say: “Lightning Lucas has an earnest heart that he puts into every song. He's equal parts quirky, funny, and poignant.” Here's what Jake Cochran of Illiterate Light had to say: “With a wit like the lightning in his name, Lucas always brightens my day. We’ve played together countless times and toured together by bicycle, but I keep coming back for the songs. I have my favorites, but more than anything I look forward to whatever he writes next.” Here’s a quote from Dimitris Campos of Ears to the Ground Family: “I think Lucas is spontaneous, creative, and witty.  He’s the hardest working songwriter in Harrisonburg.  His songs get to the heart of the theme that he’s writing about.” Go ahead and start the process of commissioning a song by emailing Lucas@LightningLucas.com or calling (FivForZeero-746-0398)... I look forward to the possibility of working with you! --Lightning Lucas-- --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/holdthatnote/message

It is perhaps more important to me that you listen to recent episodes, but if you are a super fan, this repost is for you.  Episode 01 was pretty solid.  It came out on March 17, 2021.  A lot of things have changed since then, some things not so much.  Please do consider going back to the beginning and binge-listening to some episodes!  Here are the show notes from the original episode: Hold The Hope was commissioned by the Iowa Peer and Family Peer Support Training Program, and it featured Nichole Barrows, C.S. Hurst and Isaac and Jacinda Stahly-Dahl.  It was mixed and mastered by Jake Cochran of Illiterate Light.  You can watch a video of Hold The Hope, which was put together by the esteemed Gabriel Brunk, by clicking here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ElhZ1wsnBUs and you can find it on the album A Taste of Lightning Lucas wherever you download or stream your music.  Still Have Hope was co-written with Andrew Claassen.  I did the vocals and the acoustic guitar.  Andrew did everything else, including: electric guitars, bass, laying the drum track, organ, back-up vocals, producing the song, mixing, and mastering!  A video for this song should be available next week-ish, and we may make the song available for downloading and streaming, haven't figured out how yet. Hold That Note is planning to run at least 6 episodes, with an old favorite followed by a new song each week.  If I enjoy the 6 week trial period I will keep going.  If you enjoy it, please subscribe.   You can consider supporting me by checking out patreon.com/lightninglucas ... there is no commitment involved in checking it out.

Welcome to my musical podcast where each week we hear two songs, usually one old and one new.  Today, Niko's Song is the old one.  It's about Jeremiah chapter 1 and John chapter 3 (The story of Nicodemus), and it was written in honor of the birth of my nephew (who's name is Jeremiah (he turned 8 yesterday)).  The new song today is the first-ever studio recording of 'Only This Step,' complete with redone verses.  Only This Step is a 'mantra song' advising you to tackle things one at a time.
