Liner Notes: 

I decided to write about a picture I saw of someone looking in the window at their loved one dying, and not being able to be with them because of this virus.

I didn't know it would be the last one
I didn't realize I'd never again hear your voice
Soon after this virus attacked you
I know that this would have never been my choice

I didn't know how fast it would take you
I didn't realize you'd die all alone
I couldn't imagine how quick it all was
Things would be different if only I'd known

Running through my mind over and over
I keep recalling our last conversation
I'm not even sure if I told you I loved you
Now you are dying in complete isolation
Taking your last breath in complete isolation

The pain is raw
I never saw this coming

I didn't know that I'd never again touch you
I didn't realize it your life would be over
My heart is broken into tiny pieces
Don't see how I'll ever recover

Repeat chorus

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Very empathetic lyrics. 'I didn't know it would be the last one' is a really powerful line and 'I'm not even sure if I told you I loved you' is very, very good writing.

A wonderful set of words. There have been many touching stories and photos etc. over the past few months, and this sums up a few so nicely. A beautiful write

I think this is a fear many of us share at the moment. Nicely captured into words.

nice, and actually quite timeless as well. That angst and fear you've capture here with some great lines, while albeit a little more prevalently mainstream now........well it's as old as time.

Oh gosh, this really tugs at my heart. It is so tender and so beautiful. And now with so many deaths due to COVID and the riots I suspect there are many more last conversations that people do not realize are the last — this reminds me to treasure all of them and to have more of them with the people I love.

A beautiful yet sad lyric, that unfortunately has been taking place many times during this pandemic. It's a very sad situation and needs to be put down in words, excellent work.

Beautifully written. Focused in on a genuine emotion that occurs. Imagery is clear and the message simple. Good skirmish.
