Lyrics came first on this one. Was talking with my partner about mortality, how we want to do our best to make a positive impact on the world before we're gone, and noting how grateful we are to have each other.
Created in Ableton Live 10. Was playing with a synth and it incidentally created a groove, so I recorded that, added drums and the low bass like synth for depth. It took a few days to figure out the rhythm and phrasing for this song.
We're only here for a short time
Leaving ourselves behind
We are fleeting
It cannot stay the same forever
Wanted endless order
But so soon it changes
Reinventing our footsteps
We are ephemeral
Never be the same again
