Liner Notes: 

Cindy...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.

Bill.. I knew I had to sig this before i finished readng the frst verse

Lyrics: 

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

Chorus
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

Bridge
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.

Wow, you made this tug on my heart! Very touching and raw too. Simply a wonderful job!

My mother is in an "old folks home" and we 4 kids are painfully aware that if she was to pass from Covid (or anything else, for that matter--she's 91) we wouldn't even be able to go to the funeral. She was just in the hospital for a couple weeks after a fall, and couldn't visit.

I have another old friend with Stage 4 lung cancer who caught Covid and that I've been texting with, and--somehow--she got over it. But she was another whose funeral I would want to go back to in Omaha--but not while this Covid thing is still going around.

Anyway...very topical and meaningful lyrics, Cindy. And a great job interpreting them, Bill--you put your heart into this one!

Topical, very good write. We have old ones we are unable to get to if things go wrong. Delivered with the right emotion. Nice one

This is so very soulful...lyrically and vocally and dealing with a topic that should outweigh all the politicking going on...with so many thousands dead and so many millions infected...well done Cindy...well done Bill!

I had commented on the power of these wonderful lyrics before.... Bill’s music does an amazing job drawing out the emotion and the sorrow so brilliantly.

Incredibly sad ... Bill's lived-in voice is perfect for this. The repeat of "complete isolation" is very effective. Love the little guitar fills!
