DOWNLOAD MP3: CJ Ray – Sweet Surrender (Sarah McLachlan Song)

Published

on

Lyric-centric, rock-infused-singer-songwriter, CJ Ray releases his electrifying interpretation version of Sarah McLachlan’s hit “Sweet Surrender” today with a premiere via American Blues Scene. “As a songwriter, lyrics have always been crucial to me and when I hear a song with a powerful message, I just want to be wrapped up in it and become a part of the message,” says CJ. “I hope my treatment of her song is received in the same way as I approached its’ making — with love, thankfulness and respect.”

CJ Ray is set to release his latest EP, For Each Other, on June 18th. Comprised of five original songs and “Sweet Surrender,” the EP boasts visceral and heartfelt performances by the songwriter and his band and was produced by Paul Fig (Deftones, Coheed and Cambria, Trivium.) The majority of the songs were written and recording during the Covid-19 pandemic and the social issues surrounding that time. The songwriter explores themes that include returning to normal life, caring for others, appreciating the past, desiring freedom, newness and rebirth.

While pursuing his desire to inspire, CJ Ray, known as Granddude to his family, brings forth his collection of lyric-centered rock, pop and contemporary music. Inspired by the sounds of Train, Gavin DeGraw, Jack Johnson, John Mayer and Jason Mraz.

A son, husband, father and Granddude, family is at the forefront of CJ’s life. “My granddaughter calls me Granddude, which I adore and I absolutely love being a dad to my kids,” he says. “I think having so many connections to others creates the ability for me to write music from numerous perspectives. I have been a kid and I have been in trouble and I have been a success and I have been a failure… I think the breadth of life allows one to interpret life from a perspective that can contain nuggets of wisdom and desire not to waste a word or a moment. I hope the listener feels that in my lyrics.”

Raised in a suburb north of Chicago, CJ started playing music at a young age at church and with friends from his middle school. His first venture was as a drummer in a four-member rock band that covered songs from bands like Led Zeppelin, Van Halen, and Bad Company and for a short while, featured now-famous classmate, Tom Morello on guitar and lead vocals.

This Nevada based, singer-songwriter is seeking to find the best avenue to share his songs of hope and grace as well as other emotional subjects of the heart, mind and soul. CJ wants his music to make his listeners find joy and peace in any circumstance they find themselves in. In the summer of 2020, CJ Ray released “24 and 8,” his emotional tribute to Kobe Bryant and his daughter, Gianna. Prior to that, he released a ten song LP, Be Where You Are, with the lead single, “Words,” appearing in the 2019 feature film “High Strung Free Dance.”

“Sweet Surrender” is the third single to be released from For Each Other following “Death Valley” and “Today.”

LYRICS

It doesn’t mean much

It doesn’t mean anything at all

The life I’ve left behind me is a cold room

I’ve crossed the last line

From where I can’t return

Where every step I took in faith betrayed me

And led me from my home

And sweet surrender

Is all that I have to give

Take me in, no question’s asked

You strip away the ugliness that surrounds me

(Who are you?)

Are you an angel?

Am I already that gone?

I only hope that I won’t disappoint you

When I’m down here on my knees

(Who are you?)

And sweet surrender

Is all that I have to give

(Who are you?)

And sweet surrender

Is all that I have to give

Don’t understand

The touch of your hand

I would be the one to fall

I miss the little things

I miss everything about you

Doesn’t mean much

It doesn’t mean anything at all

The life I left behind me is a cold room

(Who are you?)

And sweet surrender

Is all that I have to give

(Who are you?)

And sweet surrender

Is all that I have to give

LYRICS:

VERSE 1

I remember when sin was sin

I remember when wrong was wrong

I remember when we all fell short

But got back up much quicker than the fall

CHORUS

I’m praying that You open our eyes

Praying that You open our eyes again

Father please open our eyes

Father please open our eyes again

VERSE 2

I remember when the left was left

I remember when we had respect

I remember when my mama said no

it’s exactly what she meant

And then she’d follow up and say

Because I told you so

CHORUS

I’m pray that you open our eyes

Praying that You open our eyes again

Father please open our eyes

Father please open our eyes again

BRIDGE

You can take what’s wrong

You can make it write

With some holy conviction

A little loving and correction

You can take these burdens

Give us one that’s light

Here I am Jesus

Here I am Jesus

Jason Crabb celebrates the beginning of a new chapter in his storied career with the release today of Just As I Am. The five-song EP, Crabb’s official debut on the Red Street Records label, was produced by GRAMMY winner Jay DeMarcus, founding member of country supergroup Rascal Flatts.

Featuring contributions from such acclaimed songwriters as Tony Wood, Josh Bronlewee, and Andrew Bergthold, along with Crabb and DeMarcus, Just As I Am is a powerful declaration of faith in the One who is constant and sure, even in the midst of uncertainty and hardship. The project is highlighted by the title cut and debut single, which is currently in the Top 30 on Billboard’s AC Monitored chart. In addition, Just As I Am includes the honest confession of “Heart Wide Open”; the infectious song of surrender, “Send Me (The One)”; “Friend In The Fire,” a prayer of refinement; and the striking “Before,” a piano-driven declaration of worship in the midst of pain.

LYRICS:

I’ve been tryin’ to figure out

What it means to be human

Flesh and bone

The spirit and the soul

 

If I can not earn Your love

By trying to measure up

Why do I think I’ll lose it in the lows

 

Somehow You see through my heart

And You welcome me with open arms

 

Just as I am

In the good and the bad

You still understand

And You never stop loving me Just as I am

With the heart of Father

And grace like no other

You never stop loving me

Just as I am

 

You’ve been patient with my wandering

Always knowing what I need

With a gentle hand You show me where to go

 

No there hasn’t been a moment

You weren’t calling out to me

I heard Your voice and now I’m coming home

 

Just as I am

In the good and the bad

You still understand

That You never stop loving me

Just as I am

With the heart of the Father

And grace like no other

Oh You never stop loving me

Just as I am

 

I just wanna say thank you

Thank you

Thank you for loving me

I just wanna say thank you

Thank you

Thank you for loving me

I just wanna say thank you

Thank you

Thank you for loving me

I just wanna say thank you

Thank you

Thank you for loving me

 

Just as I am

In the good and the bad

You still understand

Oh You never stop loving me

Just as I am

With the heart of Father

And grace like no other

You never stop loving me

Just as I am
