Friends, presenting Propter Te (Latin for 'Unto You' or 'For You'). This was my Round 1 submission for NGADM 2012, and has successfully led me to Round 2.
To all my French-speaking friends : je vous prie de pardonner mon langage assez simpliste. En tout cas j'ai fait de mon mieux !
The track took me eight days in total, minus the tearful breakdown I had in the middle of the Round 1 period. While making this song, I was in conflict. When listening to my work in progress, I felt that it wasn't as powerful as I had hoped it to be. Thanks to some friends' encouragement and lots of prayers, I finally decided to leap before thinking -- I was ready to finish this song.
The lyrics are an internal monologue. They were drawn from the day I had a tearful breakdown over this piece... I was sobbing, and in conversation with a friend. After he consoled me and prayed for me, I suddenly turned to my right and saw a small moth enter my room through the window..... and then came the tension-breaker, "There's a moth in my room." Both of us started laughing. For some reason we felt that our prayers were answered.
I decided then to write the lyrics along those lines. No looking back on them now...
I hope it speaks to you as much as it has spoken to me.

EDIT 11.08.2012: A few kinks have been knocked out, especially those at 3:11 and 3:59.
EDIT 18.08.2012: With Round 1 NGADM over, I decided to reupload the improved version, but with slightly louder volume.
