about

this is a horrendous first take of a song i wrote in five minutes this evening. it 's for a good friend i'll never see again and a different one i'll never feel the same way about. one day i'll be better at playing this. i apologize in advance for how terrible it is.

lyrics

\\\\\\\\\
oh, what virtues
the lord would have us abhor
i'd likely have declined the offer
if i knew what life would have in store

it's a parting gift
on a sunshine day
any number of reasons
i'd rather not stay

you're so dressed up,
impressed upon your bedside lies
used to be the tonic
for my young but tired eyes
i can't fault you,
i know the wires are in the way
but there's just any number of reasons,
and i'd rather not say.

it's a parting gift
on a sunshine day
any number of reasons
i'd rather not stay

this conversation piece
and the ripples through the bay
i'll blame the sunset
of my seeing you that day
it's a parting gift
on a sunshine day
any number of reasons,
and i wish you'd have told me to stay.
