THIS WILL ALL BE GONE TOMORROW

And so to ‘This Will All Be Gone Tomorrow’. The end of our recorded output proper. This was initially meant to be a ‘secret’ song on the album (remember when CD’s had those?) after ‘Home…’ but time constraints and everything else meant it just went on as the last track. It’s a fitting ending though.

Again, pretty emotionally heavy. Just myself and a piano, this was definitely where my songwriting was heading at this point. I’ve been playing guitar 15+ years and haven’t really got any better since I was about 16 so writing on the piano is still fairly fresh and invigorating for me. It might be basic stuff but it means I don’t really know what I’m doing (always a good thing in my opinion) whereas picking up a guitar I generally immediately start doing something I’ve already tried previously. There are only so many songs I can write in A minor on guitar.

Remember those lighter clicks at the end of ‘Wander’? Well I’ve just remembered that they were part of the plot….the fire crackling through this track is the result of what the main character has done. Burned everything down around him. Metaphorically. And possibly physically. Who knows? The lyrics reflect that too. Post apocalyptic/cataclysmic stuff, leaving ‘Gomorrah’ and the Romeo/Juliet style suicidal references that represent his state of mind. It would have been an ace film I’m telling you.
