Blues Song

Yesterday was the first time that I wrote lyrics to a blues song. I thought it was fitting that it was New Year's Eve and that the song is about death.

Everyday I get older
One step closer
To that eternal slumber

What about the things I’ve said
The things I regret
And the things I never dreamt

My hairline recedes every morning
Wrinkles when I smile

What will be the last thing I see?
Will it be an empty room?
I don’t want to go alone

Will I be remembered?
Will all my work be done?
Or will there be more?

I know I gotta go one day
Because everyone’s got to go
But I want to stay, want to stay
