about

This song was written as a shadow entry into SpinTunes #4, round 2. The challenge was "Write a musical Valentine's Day card to someone OTHER than your significant other." This was a real collaborative songwriting approach, with K writing the melody to fit her words and M working alongside to fit chords and structure around it.

lyrics

Every year
I put away all my fear
All my feelings, in one card for you

I never fail to write it,
I just can't send it off

Don‘t know what‘s different
Don‘t know what‘s changed
… and now i'm sending you this card


This is my goodbye
Today I'm saying never
Your lies would never fly
Not now, not ever


Not alone
He is here I‘m long gone
Putting all my feelings, in one card for you

This year I also wrote it
But I just sent it off

Don‘t know what‘s different
Don‘t know what‘s changed
… and still i'm sending you this card


This is my goodbye
This is saying never
Your lies would never fly
Not now, not ever


A letter in the mail
No sender, no name
Inside just one line
„I‘m sorry“


This is my goodbye
Today I'm saying never
Your lies would never fly
Not now, not ever
