Recorded in my home studio. A pared down piano and vocal in tribute to a friend who left this world too soon and sends his regrets from beyond. An interesting point of view and another great set of lyrics from UK based writer Geoff Matthews.

Lyrics:
Always Near- (c)2021 Geoffrey Matthews and Sonya Heller

VERSE
Forgive my wild indulgence
And all my past mistakes
I never meant to hurt you
Your crying is so hard to take.
VERSE
Forgive my indiscretion
For loving you too long
I never meant to hurt you.
I know that you can carry on.
CHORUS
I wanted to be with you
Until your final breath
But time ran out of time
And I had reached the end
I wanted to be with you...
VERSE
Forgive my swift departure.
I always meant to stay
I never meant to hurt you.
It just turned out to be that way.
VERSE
Forgive the fading armour
That you kept bright for me
I never meant to hurt you.
In all my wildest dreams
CHORUS
I wanted to be with you
Until your final breath
But time ran out of time
and I had reached the end
I wanted to be with you...
MIDDLE
Don’t cry too long
Don’t linger there
In shattered dreams
Or dark despair.
I loved you all
I think you know.
I did my best
I hope it showed.
I’m always near.
Just a room away.
Don’t wait to knock
When you come this way.
For I’ll be here
All safe, you’ll see
Until it’s time for you,
To follow me.
VERSE
Forgive the imposition
Of being the first to go
I never meant to hurt you
All I want now is to let you know
OUTRO
You should live your life
Don’t waste a tear
For I’ll be waiting
Always near.
