The end is nigh

Liner Notes: 

Listened to so much this last few hours got inspired to do one last farewell song. then forgot to post it - must have snuck in by seconds, was fun to do this but much better to go back and listen to 120 that was a real song (and will be the lead on my new album)


The end I nigh
Time goes so fast
Got my memories
And they will last

I try and keep it simple
don’t tell no lies
Coz im not really one
For long goodbyes

Its been so much fun
But now ive got to try
To finish one last song
Before the tank runs dry

So much I could say
But I will remember you
90 days and 90 nights
So much that we've been through

But now its nearly over
Time to close the door
Hoping that next year
Ill be back for at least one more

The end I nigh
Time goes so fast
Got my memories
And they will last

The end I nigh
Time goes so fast
Got my memories
And they will last

The end I nigh
Time goes so fast
Got my memories
And they will last

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

What a sweet song of parting for such a great Summer! Well done! And well done on that covetted last song spot by a minute or 2, ( I only pipped that once in 11 years) you guys quicker in Australia! Smile
Thanks so much for all the music, love, and support this Summer, my friend... and with this last lope of mine to the end as well! And for your heroic, probably historic, efforts in the Century Club.
Looking forward to our paths crossing in February! Be safe and wishing you happy skies till then! Hugs, Wolf.

Lovely song to end this day…the final 50/90 day. I enjoyed the harmonica in there. This has a nice blend and good spirit to it.

I think this one might actually be my favorite of yours from this year. A sweet melody, vocal line, and charming lyrics Biggrin

Can’t imagine a better or more apt song to be the last one. You mention it was done as a bit of last minute inspiration, but sometimes those are the best ones! Have another listen in a month and I bet you’ll be pleasantly surprised! That blues harp is so well chosen and played, perfect partner to your bittersweet vocal. Great tune! Thank you for all your support this summer, has meant so much. And more importantly thank you for writing and sharing so many quality songs!
