    Most people don't use CD's any more, so for this new album we aren't making a run of normal, pressed CDs. but if you really would like an actual disc we can make one for you! Your CD will be hand-made to order by DC himself, who is a whizz at this sort of thing.

    PLEASE NOTE that, due to COVID19, it might take longer for your CD to arrive.

    If you like, DC will sign the CD for you on request - just select the "autographed" option when you order. And if there's a particular name or message you would like, include a note with the order by clicking where it says "Include a message to Madcar Records".

lyrics

THE SPIRIT IS WILLING (© DC Cardwell)

When I step into the hall
I know I should kiss you all
The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak

When you try to talk to me
I'm not how I'm supposed to be
The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak

CHORUS
Part of me is open wide
Part of me I try to hide
Part of me's asleep inside
But part of me can't be denied - oh oh

Standing on my feet all day
Earning someone else's pay
The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak

My head is spinning and my soul is dull
Stomach's empty, brain is full
The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak

REPEAT CHORUS

SOLO

Standing on my feet all day
Earning someone else's pay
The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak
The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak
The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak
The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak
The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak
