September 20, 2009 | Song of the Week
I don’t know what we expected when we first started up this song a week thing. Our “side project” to Moving Rushmore quickly became the “main project”. Now 52 songs later here we are. Its been an awesome experience and its really neat to look back over the past year and see/hear the progression of our music. Although there was the occasional mediocre song, for the majority of the time we put out some pretty cool stuff. I know that I can look back with a sense of pride over what we’ve accomplished in the past year.
We’re really grateful to all of you that have told your friends about us, bought our music, blogged about us, came to our shows, and enjoyed our music. Just because we’re done with the song a week doesn’t mean that we’re done making music. You could say that we’ve only just begun…
You’ll especially want to check back next week as we’ve got something special brewing.
If you’ve enjoyed this song a week project and want to keep up with us, this would be a great time to sign up for our e-mail list, follow us on twitter, sign up for our podcast and/or friend us on facebook. We’re still going to be active so if you want to know what we’re up to then those are some good ways to keep in touch.
This song ended up sounding a little like Owl City (check them out if you haven’t already). As I wrote this song I was thinking about a friend of mine who is experiencing a heart wrenching break-up and these are some of the questions he’s asking. I’m reminded that to love deeply puts you at risk of hurting deeply. Is it worth it? What do you think?
Worth the While
Lyrics by Patrick Largen
is this really going to end?
right here and right now?
come hell or high water
you’ll float or you’ll drown
is it worth it
and I wonder all the time
if you’ve had it all figured out
and if all this is something
worth the while
and this is really going to end right now
