Last Call – lyric

March 18, 2012

This is the lyric–which I just got through touching up–for the last song on the upcoming album, The Whole Other Half.

LAST CALL

[INTRO]

VERSE:
An old roadhouse blues man
Climbs up on the stool
Moans incoherently into the mic
But his guitar sounds so cool.

You can’t recall how long
You’ve been coming to hear him play
A lifetime of forgetting
Seems it’s always been this way.

And it’s a long way back to the place
That you used to call your home.

BRIDGE:
You can climb the highest mountain and never really reach the top
You can fight the world so long you forget to stop
You may reach a point in your life where you’ve forgotten how to feel
Where nothing that you’ve worked for seems real.
Hey…

[INSTRUMENTAL; slide guitar]

VERSE:
It’s time to hit the road
They’re clearing up the place
The blues man packs his Gibson
In an old brown leather case.

You polish off your beer
And wipe the suds away
You’ve got nowhere to sleep tonight
But you know where you can stay.

And it’s a long way back to the place
That you used to call your home.

[INSTRUMENTAL; horns]

And it’s a long way back to the place…
