Liner Notes: 

Started writing this about four weeks ago, contemplating an imminent loss, and the feeling around other losses before that.

Lyrics: 

It hangs between us like a knife
Not long now
No one speaks what we all know
Not long now
Every little day-to-day now weighing down with meaning
You know we know you know that it’s not long now

We’ve all been in these shoes before
Not long now
We know the path and where it goes
Not long now
It’s not denial of the truth
But no one needs to say it
You know we know you know that it’s not long now

And all these many years we’ve had
Not long now
We never thought that they would end
Not long now
We’re trapped in the awareness
That each thing could be a last
You know we know you know that it’s not long now



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

This is really good. Singing, piano, vocals and lyrics. Great title hook.

A somber song that has a sadness surrounding it. It's very gently delivered and the piano and melody do a good job of expressing these thoughts.
