Since the Fall

Since the Fall

“Since the Fall” is the third song that I’ve recorded in the past few weeks that features the Harmonica I bought myself for my birthday. As the 3rd song in what I like to call the ‘Harmonica Trilogy’, I think that this is the best one yet. This one really came together quickly – the lyrics, music, recording, mixing. As an added bonus, I even got to use a Mandolin for the first time in any of my recordings (thanks to Alan Olifson for lending it to me). I think it really adds a nice touch!

While the subject matter of this one is kind of sad and a little depressing, it touches on subjects that I’ve been dealing with a lot this past month or so.

Lyrics:
The room was dark and the air was stale
and he sat in the corner underneath the clock
and i walked up behind him and pulled up a chair
and wondered how long he’d been sitting there

He turned his head and said to me
dont ever get old like me
and i turned away so i wouldnt see
how much he looked like me

And maybe time is crueler to some
and maybe it lies to us all
but without the years it all seems the same
and the time we’ve lived since the fall

And I told him that I’d found a girl
with rosy lips and long brown hair
and I was going to settle down
and try to find something peaceful there

He pulled me close and smiled at me
treat her well and she’ll be true
and don’t let your own destiny
stand in the way of the beautiful view

And maybe time is crueler to some
and maybe it lies to us all
but without the years it all seems the same
and the time we’ve lived since the fall
