These feet have carried me as far as I will go
Across the field to where the wind had ceased to blow
That day, when sorrow filled the air and all the blackbirds scattered everywhere
And you had gone as far as you would go

In my reflection, you are staring back at me
My eyes are mirrors of the dreams you used to see
But now I'm fumbling in the dark, where all the memories are far apart
And there I lost the forest for the trees

In the gloaming of the day
The words are darkening away

   Take another look
   There's no more pages in this book
   The epilogue was written in the dirt
   The story's at an end
   It's time to put away my pen
   And join the you by the earth 

There was a tremble in the marrow of my bones
Distorted and contorted like a worn out megaphone
And through the bellow and the bluster, I was shaking, I was flustered
With a body full of star-crossed chromosomes

And through the clatter there emerged a single voice
A familiar sound I hadn't heard since I was just a boy
And all at once my fears were lifted as the echoes slowly drifted
To the center of the amplifying void

And I followed like a child, so carefree and so wild


Well there's music everywhere
The voices carry through the air
But I'm not listening


Tuning: standard, capo 2nd fret

The strumming is with no pick. At the start of each measure, I hit the low note with my thumb, then do the rest of the notes by raking my index finger (watch the video). 

Play Am chord, then walk the bassline with these chords:
x02210 x2001x x30010 20023x 320003
x02210 x2001x x30010 xx401x 320003

G    Em    Am    D/F#
G    B7    Em    Am    D/F#

x02210 x2001x x30010 3x0010 20023x
x02210 x2001x x30010 3x0010 20023x

C    G    Em    Bm
C    G D/F# Em
x02210 x2001x x30010 20023x 320003

C    D/F#   B7   Em
Am   D/F#

Josh. You never cease to amaze me. I've listened to your whole album (started yeasterday) and I have to tell you this: I like every song. Every song is unique, well composed, sang, the melodies are light and cheerful. This tunes just makes you happy. I'm impressed. You have great talent. Thank you.

Indeed, this is a great epilogue. But I was afraid it could be a REAL epilogue! Like you were sending a message, "this is the end, beautiful friend"... Then I remembered you talked about buying new stuff for the future with the money from the Kickstarter, I hope we will hear again a lot of great albums like these ;-)

Thanks! And no worries, it's just an epilogue to the CD, not my music. :D

Josh - I almost cried when I heard Epilougue, probably because I've benn listening to your music for so long now (5 years!) and because it felt so right for this moment in my life.My favorite song by you is still either Soft Orange Glow or Me and Billy Barnum... and I am quickly falling into this album now. I agree with the above comments - your songs are ALWAYS unique. - take care, with an air of awe and inspiration from me,-anna
