If you were to write your very last song no matter why you were doing so. What would it be ?? For me i guess i would write a personal song to my family (but thats just who i am i guess) ha! How about you guys!! What would it be?
Assuming that its because I'd croak soon, a song to my family, but I might make it more like that 'remember the sun screen song' thats full of advice and wisdom (it might be a real short song).
I actually do have a note on my computer telling where all my unfinished songs are in case I croak with a recomendation to try to find a songwriter that could finish them. They'd probably get done quicker that way than if I didn't kick the bucket.

Hello Everybody. Welcome to the show here tonight. Before we get into it though, just let me say, I am not feeling too well tonight, so if you don't mind I will open the gig with one I wrote while waiting to get served at the bar before fronting the mike. Don't think of it as a sad song. Just be happy with me that i have manages to stay alive long enough to sing it. if I fail on option one, someone please slip in where I left off. And whatever happens. Have a good night. Her we go. I 2 3 4. My ticker is playing up a bit. And my head hurts like hell. I've lost my balance sdlightly And my sense of smell.
But I've got this gig to do. Bringing karaoke to you. And If I should fall over. Here's what you've gotta do.
Ye gotta turn it up louder. Yeah yeah Yeah. Turn it up Louder. Ya HOOOOOoooooo. Don't stuff round just do it. Pump up the pace and get in to it. Rock and rolllllllll. Graham

Since I don't 'xactly plan on scheduling this Dearly Departin's thing, my last song is going to be whatever one I finished before I go. Or went. (Is there a "gonna be buried sometime but thinking about it now" tense? Or doesn't English get that complicated?)
Is there really a last song? Could there be energy still there to be picked up by someone else?
"A man, alone at his piano, ponders the ways of traveling spirits. Locked in his own sounds of musical thoughts, too many to play at once, this man my be not be at a certain piano in a certain house or apartment, or playing certain notes you and me can hear at this time. For you see, this man of eternal music lives not in this time and place, but in-between the notes - of The Twilight Zone".
John , You know thats our goal as songwriters ,to write an eternal song ,maybe thats the answer or the -last - song so to speak. If we create songs that will live on through the eyes and souls of others be it through their tallent or through the power of song .It would be a great thing for a song to live on! Thanks and OH:: Graham has lost his Teddy if you see it send it home please!! Take care // keep postin . S.Dee
Thanks John. I'll add that to the list of descriptive phrases I have had bestowed on my in these forums. The teddy I can get by without if I can find the dummy I just spat out, but my security blanket I really need in these troubhled times S Dee. Thanks for the lost and found announcement. Graham
Hiya,I think I would liketohave my final song as one to tell everyone I know what I thought about them (good or bad)!! would probably surprise a few folks. but if I had to be nice I would sing... would you catch me if I fall before I end it all though I didn't call and save me from myself
would you fight away the demons tear up the latest summons make lemonade from lemons and save me from myself
and I would live again exist for you only my lover and my friend please save me
your stubborn in defeat same mistakes you repeat with this I can't compete I'll save you from yourself
can't take it when you fail or when your sick and pale death stories you regale I'll save you from yourself
and you would live again exist for me only my lover and my friend don't leave me
together last the night and fight the damn good fight turn darkness into light we'll save us from ourselves
and day by day we'll live and past sins we'll forgive for eachother we'll live we'll save us from ourselves
and we will live again exist for us only my lover and my friend believe me.
Interesting stuff. It makes me think of a story told by an old buddy of mine, Jim Post.
Jim went to visit Steve Goodman who was dying of leukemia. Steve wanted to hear one of Jim's songs, a favorite of his. After the song, Steve asked Jim for the guitar. Jim gave it to him and helped move the iv's and tubes so Steve could hold it. Steve said, "Here's a song I just wrote."
Imagine, your last few days and there you are...still writing songs.
It's one of Jim's favorite stories and mine too.
All the Best, Mike

You've got to know your limitations. I don't know what your limitations are. I found out what mine were when I was twelve. I found out that there weren't too many limitations, if I did it my way. -Johnny Cash
that is quite a cool story but then again I guess whena life changing moment is hapening you are gonna wanna express how you are feeling. funny cos when you think you have all the time in the worldyou dont say too much but when you know time is running out you suddenly have loads you wanna say or wish you had said before
A song about trains, the world can always use another song about trains. Wait a minute, I wrote that one already. Well, perhaps another one. I hear the train a coming, and its running towards the light, I'm ready now I've had my say, I won't put up a fight.... Something like that, I suppose.
NEW POSTER - enjoying site. I'd try to inspire my friends and family to find God and live a life in Christ. I have written a collection of songs called "Last Call to The Lost", of course, I'm an unsigned songwriter....but, I think they pretty inspirational, some upbeat, some slow and croony.
I'm with you on that one! I would write to tell people to remember that, even if you don't believe in the other side, that it's better to be safe than sorry, so prepare now. If there is no other side (which I believe there is), then you have lost nothing, but if there is, then you want to be sure you are not found wanting!
Sow your good seeds now, you can't do it when you're gone.
