Beginning Of The End
I kept on telling my brother Robert that if he wanted to write a hit song then write the saddest song possible and people would not be able to get it out of their minds. I finally took my own advice and wrote this song from a woman's perspective. Amanda Flanagan uses her voice like an instrument to portray the anguish of a young woman in a sad predicament. I'm thinking there are lots of women who can identify with parts of this song or will empathize with the woman in the story. I added a violin to lend that lonesome quality to this song. The lyrics "I wonder Lord are you still there?" are truly sad if you think about a poor soul whose life is so miserable she feels abandoned even by her God. I've got a feeling it will be popular.
