Liner Notes: 

It's been a really weird year for me and never would I have dreamed that FAWM would be more productive than 5090 for me but here we are. I'm out of time and energy (unless @colgoo wants me to try recording my part for our duet now that my voice is mostly back!) and I hit the magic 100.

Thank you, everyone. All of the listens, all of the comments, all of the support. Those friends who got me back onto the brown couch and behind the mic when I had all but given up... I love you.

See you at FAWM, or if you're so inclined, over at Song Skirmish and/or The SongWrite Inn (and maybe even GYAWS) on Facebook!

-Alex the metalfooted one

Lyrics: 

one last set of chords
because I know you're getting bored
one last set of verse
because at this point it gets worse
one last melody
because it's time that you leave me
one last song to go
because it's time to end the show

here's to you
and you
and you
and you
and all of you really

here's to music
and laughter
and fun
and frolics
and camaraderie

here's to the mods
and maintainers
the ones who give us
a playground like this

here's to all me
collaborators
who put up with me
when I went largely amiss

see you soon
and be well
FAWM is close
I'll have more to tell

one last set of chords
because I know you're getting bored
one last set of verse
because at this point it gets worse
one last melody
because it's time that you leave me
one last song to go
because it's time to end the show



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

Lovely yet sad good-bye song. I raise my glass to you my friend and grateful to share this passion with you. I'm singing along my thanks for this playground. You've captured the love of this magical place.

funny how you see 100 as a few, i realise we did about 130 each last year so i guess i am slipping as well Smile I know you had a very disrupted 50/90 for many reasons but you came back real strong and this is a lovely end song! very pretty emotional feel to this 50/90 end song!

Soaring vocals and beautiful guitar work dude! Reminds me of Floyd's I Wish You Were Here, with a more modern bent. The lyrics are honoring some of the best parts of life (50/90!!!) Biggrin

This sums up my feelings right now. Thanks for putting it into words and music!
