Thanks for listening....for coming out and supporting our musical effort. We know you have many choices pulling at you. We never take for granted the many folks who come find us and share in this collective we call life. It is late summer. We are tired. And, that is as deep as we intend to get!

I Remember The Moment
I remember the moment
When I knew it all had changed
And the folks all around me
Casting gazes that seemed strained.

I remember the moment
As I closed the door behind
Starting out on a new path
Giving up a place in line

I remember the moment
When I wished that you would wake
I sat there through the whole night
And prayed your soul God not to take

I remember the moment
When I knew that you were gone
Starting out on a new path
Goodbye is the saddest song

Just a jumble of memories
Held together by time
Building on one another
In their wake there is the rhyme

So, this is the lasts verse
The one always hard to write
Patrick says, "It's a cold curse
Writers wrestle all their life."

But, then there is a moment
When direction all comes clear
And we are left with a message
That we'll carry all the years


Lead over first half of verse

I remember the moment
And the harmony was fine
Given to you in three part
That will stand the test of time

Repeat Intro Progression
Short Song Description:
Snapshots of life that weave into the fabric that we ultimately wear.
Long Song Description:
Moments in time.
The awful decision to end a marriage or relationship.
Saying goodbye to a parent.
Wrestling with the process of saying something of substance.
The things we go through that make the collective soul and how those events shape and structure us.
Story Behind the Song:
It could just as easily have been, "Do you remember the time....?" Sitting with friends and family and recalling various instances. Life is simply a series of events stitched together. This tries to define that in song.
