about

Campfire not included! ;-) Remake of Melissa D's song that was released in 2015 when she was in the group CHILL. This remake is an ambient/acoustic version with sounds of nature so it feels like you are sitting by the campfire on a peaceful, New England evening as you are listening. The spring peepers, campfire and the river were recorded in Melissa's backyard in Vermont.

lyrics

lyrics
He's getting his coat, its been a long day
curses at the computer, it didn't shut down the right way
He's got dinner waiting for him at home
his wife just called on the cell phone
and I turn to him and and say
It's the end of the day, It's the end of the day
I'm tired to the bone and I don't have much to say
It's the end of the day

He plays the guitar, nostolgic look in his eye
the song he's playing makes him think about years gone by
He longs for the times back in the city
Livin' up with the love of his life
when they were young and giddy
and he turns to me and says
It's the end of the day, It's the end of the day
I'm tired to the bone and I don't have much to say
It's the end of the day

So no one ever told me, that it'd be this way
feeling so much older
need to break away

I walk thru the door, with the unopened mail
dog is swirling around me wagging her tail
I pour myself a great big glass of wine
think about the fleeting days and the divine
and I turn to God and say
It's the end of the day, It's the end of the day
I'm tired to the bone and I don't have much to say
It's the end of the day
It's the end of day
It's the end of the day
ooooooohh
He's getting his coat, it's been a long day
