about

'A Fond Farewell' brings the EP to a close. And just as 'Here I Am' had to be the opener, this is the natural finale. The music is a delight, with chord sequences that allow the piano, trumpet and bass to stretch out and provide a jazzy improv quality. You could imagine this as a 12-minute set piece at Ronnie Scott’s or at a Sunday club in New Orleans. The echoing outro harmonies and clever word play carry the quality right to the last beat. This is an arrangement that could only be written by someone who loves ‘the Fab Four’.

lyrics

A morning comes
Shining through your window
The sound of drums
Knocking at your door
Every day
We’ve got to chase the demons all away

I heard a voice
Coming out of nowhere
I made my choice
To give me peace of mind
Every day
We’ve got to chase the demons all away

Day by day
We’re dreaming of the one that got away
Day by day
We’re dreaming of the one that got away

Every day
We’ve got to chase the demons all away

Day by day
We’re dreaming of the one that got away

Time will tell
If we’re gonna make it
A fond farewell
Doesn’t mean goodbye
Everyday
We’ve got to chase the demons all away

Day by day
We’re dreaming of the one that got away
Day by day
We’re dreaming of the one that got away

Time will tell
A fond farewell
Time will tell
A fond farewell

Give me something to say
Give me something to think about again
Give me something to dream about

Time will tell

Give me something to say
Give me something to talk about again
Give me something to dream about

Time will tell
A fond farewell
