Story

This was the last song written for our debut album "The Last Call" and the first track recorded for the record: we got the whole song down in a one day session in September.

I guess it's a pagan hymn, an ode to late night calls, friendship, music, drinks, love & lust...our mate Nick Barker (The Wreckery, The Reptiles) from Melbourne was kind enough to sing on it and brought the whole song to another level.

David Henry and Rod Picott mixed this one in Nashville!

Lyrics

The Last Call | IN THE END

I wish we could all get drunk tonight
talk about music and the things of life
Me…I’d rather have another liver and you can keep my heart
I could drink twice as much and never fall apart

I’m nobody’s answer to sadness
In fact I seem to cause it half the time.
And maybe it’s sunny out there and maybe we can still make it
‘Cause I swear morning comes at the end of the darkest night

It’s All right…it’s all right in the end
It’s All right…it’s all right in the end
Thought you were coming home with me tonight
Thought you were coming home with me tonight

I once thought loving someone would make me strong
Now I know how quickly it all goes wrong
I swear there just ain’t no light down here in this hole, my dear
I need a hug, I need a Kiss, I need some advice and man I need a beer

It’s All right…it’s all right in the end
It’s All right…it’s all right in the end
Thought you were coming home with me tonight
Thought you were coming home with me tonight

Now Bartender rings in the last bell
Are you gonna give me heaven or give me hell
You can take my hand and take me home tonight
Or we can just loose each other forever on these city streets

It’s All right…it’s all right in the end
It’s All right…it’s all right in the end
Thought you were coming home with me tonight
Thought you were coming home with me tonight
