Welcome to my songwriting-oriented website. Over the past 30 years, I have penned a large number of inspirational songs, many of which fit nicely into the contemporary worship category, but not exclusively. Please enjoy the ones presented here, most of them self-published under the “Kelly Carpenter Music / KelSongs” moniker. If you are interested in recording your version of one of these songs, please contact me to obtain a “mechanical” license. Meanwhile, browse around and enjoy.

Here is a song I wrote in 2009 for a promotional video for an organization in Seattle called Recovery Cafe. They provide resources and services to help homeless people, a large percentage of which suffer from substance abuse and/or mental health issues. This song is a call to people to reach out to one another. In any circumstance or need we find strength in each other.
Come on, love one another
Help your sister, help your brother
It don’t matter where you’re from
Can’t you see that we’re all one
From the executive in her high rise
To the man down in the street
If you want to make a difference, now
Then move your hands and move your feet
We all can do something
To make the world a better place…
Love one another
Show somebody that you care
Love one another
Let your love shine everywhere
No one is an island
It’s not what we’re supposed to be
We’re meant to lean on each other
And live together in harmony
Come on everybody
The future is in our hands
