Singled Out: Not By Sight's Stand
This song is from the first batch of songs that Corey Lowery and I collaborated on. I first wrote the melody and lyrics to the chorus in order to have a destination to get to. Writing doesn't always happen like that, but it did for this. I pictured myself onstage in an arena with the lights low and lighters lit throughout the audience.
The mood that I felt drawn to was a "let's put our problems away and enjoy this night, this music, this concert." More from the audience's perspective, but definitely from my experiences as well which is translated more in the verse lyrics. I relate to the empowerment that music lends when you're going through the worst things in life.
There's a song for everything that happens. So, it's a mix of that and also a statement of, "you tried to tear me down, but you only made me stronger. Here I Stand." Boom.
Gonna light this night underneath the stars
