about

I built the song starting with a drum beat and a rhythm guitar and then wrote lyrics based on a very short story I wrote in my journal in 1987

lyrics

Rise... Fall...

Open your eyes – Shake your head
Blink in the light
It’s morning already
the pain sets in again
take a deep breath prepare to rise...

Rise... wake
make the best of it
you sorrowful little thing

Tomorrow it'll all be over
unless it begins again
Guess we'll just have to deal with it then

The floorboards creak
the body is unforgiving
the memories of moments
that will never come again

Tomorrow it'll all be over
unless it all begins again

Rise...
