This song pretty much wrote itself. I didn’t try to force it in a certain direction or make it go where I thought it should.
I had been playing the melody on my guitar for a few weeks as something to strum whenever I couldn’t think of anything else to play. Then one day the words just started to develop and it all fell into place.
To me, it’s about the end of a less than stellar relationship and having to figure out how to continue on without someone. There’s a bit of denial and struggle in dealing with continuing on with your life. Especially in those first few moments when an intense sadness engulfs you when the realization hits that something you have had in your life for a period of time is now over.
The chorus being only two words, was something new to me. I sent a worktape to a friend of mine and asked if he thought it would work or if I needed to have actual lines. Luckily, he told me to leave it alone and don’t second guess it. I have a terrible habit of trying to fit songs into a certain format but I’m trying to stop that.
Feel free to give the song a listen and let me know what you think.
