Liner Notes: 

Woke up later. Too early for music. 10 minute write.

Lyrics: 

V1 Time slowly catches up
There is no going back
I try to maintain the balance
Between the white and black

V2 I feel like the last man standing
Not sure if thats good or bad
Im enjoying life the best i can
But my memories are often sad

Pre c too many empty chairs
Too many empty spaces
Too many gone before
All have run their races

C I watched them all fall
like the autumn leaf
Stolen away over time
by that night time thief

I try to keep in forward motion
Break out of these chains
But those that have gone before
Pull backwards on the reigns

But i will never hold back
I will find a way
I will continue to live life
Full in every way

Pre c too many empty chairs
Too many empty spaces
Too many gone before
All have run their races

C I watch them all fall
like the autumn leaf
Stolen away over time
by a night time thief

Nice way to use the prompt to comment on human mortality and the way those around us drop away as we age. Last man standing, good or bad, made me think.

Looking at the lyrics...but my memories are often sad...touching. Chorus looks catchy. Yeah, the message is to keep on moving...that's the plan. But the pre-chorus is a wipeout with memories, unpleasant memories creep back in.

It’s true, we will all fall from the tree sooner or later, and the mixed blessing of living longer means we have more losses to grieve. I like the indomitable spirit that came through to say this won’t stop me, despite the sadness. Rhymes flow easy and natural; real emotion and truth.

I really love the poetry in this lyric and the thought provoking nature of the sentiment you share. It is really well crafted. Great use of the skirmish prompt!

A most excellent lyric. Quite touching. A sad part of aging is losing our friends. Great skirmish. Be well my friend.

Sad yet oh so true. The chorus is very strong. Love the idea of your decision to hold on and live your life the best you can
