We know who’s to blame, we’ve skipped ahead to the last page… Song 268

Today’s song is based off of some noodling I did on the piano last night. I woke up with the melody still in my head, so that’s where I started. I think it all turned out well. Check it out:

Song 268: “The Last Page”

When I said goodbye, I meant every word
But we find ourselves looking back
When we fail to notice where our lives went off track

When I say hello, I know it only lasts a moment
But we find ourselves telling tales to make ourselves feel better
All the pain we hold inside always tastes bitter

We know who’s to blame, we’ve skipped ahead to the last page

When I said I know, I know I was only pretending
Do we tell ourselves what we want to hear
Do we know if our reasons are clear

Do we tell ourselves what we want to hear
Do we know if our reasons are clear

We know who’s to blame, we’ve skipped ahead to the last page
