Liner Notes: 

This song came from a prompt to write a song about last words. So I am narrating me imagining me being old talking to a younger me now that is narrating my fears and giving me good advice.

Lyrics: 

Verse 1
It’s the end of the line inside my own mind
I can see my whole life move fast like a knife
What will I say at the end of my days?
If I carry on this way, there’s gonna be some pain.

Chorus
I could love just a little bit more
Have a little faith and open up the door
To my heart and all my lost dreams
Got to be a little kind if I wanna be free

Verse 2
My breath’s moving fast, I’m not going to last
Not ready to go into the unknown
I’m at a crossroads and there are two ways to go.
In the darkness I know I have to lighten my load.

Chorus
I could love just a little bit more
Have a little faith and open up the door
To my heart and all my lost dreams
Got to be a little kind if I wanna be free.

Bridge
Maybe I could have been stronger
Maybe I could have been wiser
Maybe I could have been brighter
But I still got time, I still got time, I still got time.

Chorus
I could love just a little bit more
Have a little faith and open up the door
To my heart and all my lost dreams
Got to be a little kind if I wanna be free

Chorus
I could love just a little bit more
Have a little faith and open up the door
To my heart and all my lost dreams
Got to be a little kind if I wanna be free

Thank you so much for your lovely words Nadia! My voice was super tired and cold yesterday as well from a gig the night before. That was me just scratching it out at about 40% effort!

I like the theme of selflessness in order to be more free. This has a great vibe to it. I love your vocal performance; uplifting and sincere. Excellent work, man.

Aw...Matt that is outstanding! Love the hooky guitar, the chorus is an ear worm, I could hear the whole production for this in my head. Top stuff - I can absolutely hear from how slick this is that you’re a performing singer/songwriter! PS we don’t get notified of replies to our comments hence why write on each other’s soundboards! Biggrin

Nice work. Love the sentiment in the lyrics. Another good beat and rhythm. Simple but effective.

A lot of wisdom there in a hella catchy and danceable tune. I like the change of pace in the bridge as well. You might be onto a keeper with this one!

Catchy right off bat.
Oh yeah, some funky strumming; guitar sounds awesome under your vocals. And your voice is great, lots of power and you delivery these lyrics with some soul and very nice touches - excellent super catchy melody.
Well structured - love the change with the "maybe i could've been stronger" part.
Again, really dig your vocals.
This has 'hit' written all over it.
