Liner Notes: 

The skirmish prompt was 'Almost there...' which made me think of running a race. It was a bit of a scramble to get this into a listenable state within the time limit, but I certainly had fun. Smile

Lyrics: 

[Refrain]
We’re almost to the finish line
Where we’d both like to be
We heave a rasp; we wheeze and gasp
But don’t give up on me!

We’ve trained too hard
And come too far
To throw the towel in
If we run this race, we’re gonna win!

[Bridge]
You won’t see me slowing down
When victory’s in my grip
I’ll keep on picking up the pace
To take the championship

Even if I struggle though
And find I need a hand
Pull me on my feet and up I’ll stand!

[Refrain]
We’re almost to the finish line
Where we’d both like to be
We heave a rasp; we wheeze and gasp
But don’t give up on me!

We’ve trained too hard
And come too far
To throw the towel in
If we run this race, we’re gonna win!

If we run this race, we’re gonna win!

This song is like a welcome breeze! It's really bright and joyful. As Darci already said, it's a fun song!

This is great. What a lovely set of chords and piano and bass. Your vocals are really clear and engaging.

Thoroughly delightful! I wish I’d had this in my iPod back when I could still sort-of-run road races (wheezing and gasping all the way). Great skirmishing!

I feel like I could make my life better if I set that as the morning alarm on my phone. Really like the emotion.

That bass sits so nicely with the piano and your vocals. The drums keep everything running along - making sure you win!

Great Skirmish Smile

See You In The Shadows…

nice one!!! and i like that suggestion someone had to make this the morning alarm clock song- what a great way that would be to wake up!
love the pop-jazzy changes and the whole vibe is sustained by all the excellent choices you made here.

i was late to this skirmish party, just wrote and posted something..

I really like the energy in this track. The "stops" in the bridge provide a nice contrast. Good take on the prompt. I enjoyed listening!

Great uplifting song...like an pre Olympic warm up song. The piano is so nice and the word just bounce along with the jazzy chords changes

I love how positive this is. Very well done skirmish. When I was listening to it, it made me think of a quirky musical where they just burst into song in the middle of the action and it feels like they've started right in the middle of the song too. I think that's so fun. It's my kind of show. I can see the whole thing in my head. Just before they start, they jump into the song and do the prep work whole they sing then as they finish the song, they start the race. It's great. Smile Really good melody. I enjoyed this immensely.

This is absolutely wonderful! I love the upbeat light uplifting energy of the music that matches the positivity of the lyric! It is really lovely. It motivates and inspires without feeling preachy. Great take on the skirmish!!

Nice tune, I like the beep-beep-beep GO! intro. Then the bridge is great and goes into a really cool melody. Well done!

I LOVE the feel of this, it's upbeat, catchy and very inspiring. The arrangement is quite wonderful, your vocals soar nicely and effortlessly over the rest of the instrumentation. Very nice work! I'm always in awe of folks who manage a full arrangement for a skirmish.
