Until You Awake was the last song of the Blogathon last year. For the entire week i had been stuck for something excellent to close with, and as i became more and more involved with reading Mollie the song starting coming to me, slowly but surely. I remember all of the stages: sitting on my bedroom floor, furiously scribbling down the words … on the couch with Gina, desperately trying to get the picking pattern right … in front of my computer, getting it right on the first take.
In the year between then and now a lot has happed to change everyone in the world, and a lot has happened to me individually. That song stuck through, though, and every time i play it for someone new i get to tell the story about last year’s blogathon and how i really felt as though i was having a concrete effect on something. And on someone. In a way i think it’s both the most personal and the most serious song i’ve ever written.
I hope you enjoy it. Thank you, Mollie.
