As soon as I heard this unreal_dm track, I knew I needed to add some words (damn, I love what DM does!). I can’t approach a new year without rushing into a wave of sadness… and so, those are the words that manifested. My mother died on New Year’s Eve years ago… alas, my preoccupation with death. She was also a very funny woman, hence, my usual approach to the matter of death with humor. This one, however, is pretty much a summary of my current view on the matter (no humor, instead- healing).

Being my ‘By and By’ remix, I’d like to thank everyone on ccMixter for being so welcoming to me and my musical efforts. You are all an inspiration… a musical inspiration (a.k.a. the BEST kind of inspiration there is!). I feel so much more open to different styles of music… different forms of expression. So yeah, thank you for what you do.

LYRICS:

Lookin’ back your heart was just so big that it’s romantic
That it enlarged and that is how you died
But death is just a part of life
And life is just a part of death
Tears are just a part of gettin’ by
Gettin’ by, by and by
Gettin’ by, by until we die
Death is just a part of life
And life is just a part of death
Tears are just part of gettin’ by

New Years Eve I raise my glass to your memory
I smile as my tears always form
It’s so you to have died on this day
To ensure we’d always celebrate!
I pretend every single New Year’s party
Was planned to celebrate your life
I pretend the horns and cheers and glitter and confetti
Are makin’ noise and sparkling for you
I’m gettin’ by, by and by
I’m gettin’ by, by until I die
Death is just a part of life
Life is just a part of death
And I’ll be doin’ fine until I die.
