Note: This song is relatively old - it was released December 31, 2015. Somehow, I forgot to upload this one back then. I'm not really that proud of the production job on this one. I feel like I've definitely improved since this, so please keep that in mind.

Here's a track from my debut album "Christopher Tom" which you can listen to here: https://christophertom.bandcamp.com/album/christopher-tom

We were alone together, lying underneath the willow tree
You told me you'd be leaving soon, but there were things you wanted to see

So you took me to the cavern where we used to play as kids
Writing on the walls, just sloppy scrawls, it was where we first hid
You said "Never forget my name 'cause I'll be back"

The streets are empty and deserted, now there's nothing to do or see
Stuck on the wrong side of the moon, but it don't matter much to me
When you were here, the town was booming, now it's all lonely and drab
I have my calendar, I'm marking the days until you'll be back

Heart to heart in the jungle
We've come to meet our fate
Eye to eye, side to side
The hour's getting late
I've been waiting decades now just to see the sun rise again
I thought I might never make it out and then, here you came

We were young, spending our days living insane
Now we look back at everything we've done in vain
And your soul keeps singing the blues
But it's all over, there's nothing to lose
