Februwriters 2017

Februwriters is a music project done by individual songwriters over the month of February every year. Each day, the writers must write, record, and post a song with one unique verse and one unique chorus and must be at least two minutes long. The song must be written, recorded, and posted entirely on that single day.

 

I wrote this song a few years ago for a childhood friend that passed away from a long battle with cancer. I've been thinking about him a lot, lately. I've been thinking about how I didn't go to the burial site because I couldn't bear the thought of his body being lowered into the ground and walking away. I've been thinking about what an incredibly funny, caring, and thoughtful person he was. As I recorded this song, I thought about quite a few people and their loved ones who have since gone on. This song is quite meaningful for me so I wanted to share it with you.
