Liner Notes: 

Kind of a good bye love song to 50/90 - knowing how much I will miss your music, thoughts, friendship, and ideas when 50/90 ends…

Thanks for your music! I will keep listening

Lyrics: 

V1
yesterday this world
was alive with sound
with music and beauty
surprises all around

yesterday I heard
songs and symphonies
along the city streets
rivers, sky, hills and trees

PC
today
I don’t hear
anything

C
it has been too long
since our last love song
I haven’t felt like singing
since you’ve been gone

sounds are dull and gray
I can’t hear music play
I haven’t been listening
since you went away

V1
yesterday the birds
sang morning to night
with endless melodies
that brought such delight

yesterday the wind
played songs in the leaves
as the cadences of waves
on the lake kept the beat

PC
today
I don’t hear
anything

C
it has been too long
since our last love song
I haven’t felt like singing
since you’ve been gone

sounds are dull and gray
I can’t hear music play
I haven’t been listening
since you went away

B
I will wait here for whispers
sweet sounds and soft hums
faint rhythms that foreshadow
the wonder yet to come
come back again
thunder back
my friend

PC
today
I don’t hear
anything

C
it has been too long
since our last love song
I haven’t felt like singing
since you’ve been gone

sounds are dull and gray
I can’t hear music play
I haven’t been listening
since you went away

Oh no this is hard to read. Feeling a lump come up in my throat. So sad! But totally on point. This is some really great work. I love the 2nd verse ‘yesterday the wind played songs in the leaves the cadences of waves on the lake kept the beat’. Just beautiful

This is so emotional. You have captured something authentic and melancholic with the ending of things here. See you in February I hope.

Yes, a sad lyric befitting the end of a good time... but we (mostly) come back again! Smile

Oh, this is beautiful and heartbreaking. I love how the verses paint the image of music being everywhere - on the streets, in the water, in the trees. Gorgeous work!

Yes, so much yes. This totally captures the emotion when something so meaningful ends. Very poignant lyric!
