New Song – but no decision on the arrangement yet

It’s called “Our Only Chance (Is That You Feel the Same)” and it’s done. Lyric and melody is set. What I’m wrestling with is the arrangement. It lends itself to balladry, but I’m not in that kind of mood lately. So I’m fighting it. It may end up a losing battle.

Need to sleep on it.

Anyway, here’s the lyrics…

Our Only Chance
(Is That You Feel the Same)

by Tom Flannery

The middle of the bed
is still cool to the touch
different shifts different rooms
means nothing’s changed that much
a destination’s helpful
but need not get in the way
when the screen door beckons
with nothing left to say

Time passes slowly
like a crack in the floor
faces put back together
behind a bedroom door
sun shines on everyone
there’s no place you can hide
the sun’s a bitch that way
it waits for us outside

After years of open warfare
there’s no one left to blame
our only chance is that you feel the same

Eighteen can’t last forever
but age soon learns to stay
and with it’s nasty habit
of getting it’s own way
we’ve prayed to the heavens
and dug our way to hell
but like the eyes of a child
only time will tell

After years of open warfare
there’s no one left to blame
our only chance is that you feel the same
