I'm really excited about how fast this song has come together. Playing it in rehearsal last night really got me excited to finish up the lyrics and to nail down the structure. So today I was ready to lay the beds down for drums and the ghost track. I really really like this song.
Lyrically, it talks about how everything in life has an end. The bad times will pass, and the good times will unfortunately, also pass. The title of the song comes from the last verse;
Climb to the top of the tree or at least we'd try,
There's nothing like the lights of the Northern sky.
If heaven is the end, then what the hell is in here?
'Cause life get's sweeter after every year.
Here are some pics from the drum session today...
