about

This song is from my upcoming 2020 LP. It's about looking back at your life and ideally being at peace at the end of it.

The video (link below) features footage culled from Super 8 film my father shot of our childhood, and footage I've taken of my own family since my kids were born seven years ago.

lyrics

I did the best with time I had
Got no regrets, not leaving mad
But still I know the end is near

It makes me want to push so hard
Think how I’m playing my next card
Before it doesn’t mean a thing

I’ll miss the beauty of these skies
I’ll miss the love that’s in your eyes
I know that all we had
would never last
That’s why we can’t live in the past

Sunset, sunset
I feel the darkness falling

Sunset, sunset
I hear your voice is calling me
back to this world
but I see light that I must follow
I must follow

There’s still so much I haven’t done
I played the game but haven’t won
But still I try to make my mark

I could have lived so many lives
Found inner peace with better sight
I swear I did the best I could

I’ll miss the beauty of these skies
I’ll miss the love that’s in your eyes
I know that all we had
would never last
That’s why we can’t live in the past

I hear your voice is calling
But I see a light that I must follow
