I recently launched a video blog category. I hope to share some part of my day every day. Subscribe to my YouTube channel for updates. Today I recorded the first draft of my single, “Searching For You” coming out November 1st! Take a listen below or at http://reverbnation.com/shenicagraham. After I tweak the mastering (or get some much needed help with that), this single will be available on Spotify.

I will also be making a music video for this song – nothing major, just some ideas I put together to make this a full-featured experience. Thanks in advance to all my fans for purchasing a download, streaming on Spotify, and sharing on social media. I will be releasing an album in the Spring. This is the first song on the album. Much love to Tone Jonez for the music, and to Raheem (B) for recommending him.

Lyrics to “Searching For You”

Words by Shenica R. Graham
Vocals by Shenica R. Graham
Music by Tone Jonez

VERSE 1

It’s been so long now
that I’ve been searching for you.
I looked both high and low.
I’m knocking at your door.
I went through so much pain
when I was searching for you.
I count it all as gain.
I want to bear your name.

BRIDGE

I crossed the world to find you.
In darkness your light came through.
I long to hear your still voice.
Breaking through all the noise.
Had to swallow all my pride.
Coming back from almost dying.
I need a heart that knows your way.
Open my eyes to see your face.

VERSE 2

I battled wind and rain
while I was searching for you.
Got lost in endless days.
I finally found my place.
I learned to walk in your grace.
while I was searching for you.
No more nights full of shame.
You’ve taken all my blame.

CHORUS

I crossed the world to find you.
In darkness your light came through.
I long to hear your still voice.
Breaking through all the noise.
Had to swallow all my pride.
Coming back from almost dying.
I need a heart that knows your way.
Open my eyes to see your face.

AD LIB

I’m searching for you – oh oh oh, yeah yeah.

CHORUS

I crossed the world to find you.
In darkness your light came through.
I long to hear your still voice.
Breaking through all the noise.
Had to swallow all my pride.
Coming back from almost dying.
I need a heart that knows your way, yeah.
