Song-A-Week. Submit Ideas! http://blog.michaelshoup.com/submit
Welcome to the 8th episode of Song-A-Week!
This week, I had two people submit ideas via my blog on Tumblr which were very similar [thank you “christaking” and “blessingsforthebrokenhearted”] and asked for a song about letting go of a past relationship.
One of my favorite songs off my newest record is about just that thing, so I decided to record for them this acoustic version. ”Last Goodbye” epitomizes that point in a relationship where you’ve realized that it’s just not right, but you’re still having to convince yourself to let go of it.
I hope you all enjoy this interpretation, and just for this week, you can grab BOTH the acoustic and full band / album versions of this song for FREE via the links above.
Big thanks to Danny Young and Paul Shearer for adding their talent to this week.
Lyrics and Tech details below!
Nothing left to say
All my reasons behind me
So you go yours and I’ll go my way
Every step I seem to take
Is further from where we begin
And closer to I’ll start again
So maybe life’s not right
For what this love has got in store
One last goodbye
Is all I waited for
But I’m not anymore
But I keep finding you in a memory
All tied to
Tied to the best pieces of me
I always seem to play the fool
And wind up broken hearted
But I can’t tell just where it started
Everyone keeps telling me
The past is practice
And I just can’t keep killing time
While I get past this
