Song 52: It’s over, the end 52 song project

    • Music

Friends, thanks for sticking with us throughout this journey. It's been a long time since this stupid crazy thing began, and we've had a lot of fun. But all good things must come to an end, and this is the last 52 song project song. We hope you like it.

CHRIS: Steve and I had planned to get together this week and spend a few days working on an epic final recording to send this project out. Unfortunately, Steve got sick and wasn't able to make it. The result is that I descended into my recording cave feeling a lot of pressure to create something special. We'd never planned the final song in advance, and I wasn't sure what I was going to do.

I sat at my keyboard cycling through ideas. I started and rejected about five song attempts before settling on this one, then set to work on fleshing it out. This is the result.

I like that it clearly goes on too long at the end. The singer keeps saying "it's over, it's over" but refuses to let it finish. That's kind of how we feel today. Happy and proud the project is finished, but sad, too. We'll miss these songs, and this way of connecting with you every week.

Thanks again for listening and sharing. Maybe we'll find ways to revisit these songs in 2012. Until then, here's hoping you have a very happy New Year!
Lyrics
It’s been a long time
Since this stupid crazy thing began
We drank a lot of wine
But now it’s coming to an end

Cuz I got what I need
And you got what you can
We’ve had some good times
And now we need time to mend
So get out of your mind
Cuz there’s no need to pretend
It’s over, it’s over, the end

Baby you look fine
And you’ll make a lot of happy men
Baby I feel like lyin’
But I won’t go down that road again

Cuz I got what I need
And you got what you can
We’ve had some good times
And now we need time to mend
So get out of your mind
Cuz there’s no need to pretend
It’s over, it’s over, the end
It’s over, it’s over, the end
