Song of the Week: “The Ending”

It’s easy to reach for Chrome or Birds of Relocation when you want to listen to Eric Peters since those albums resonate with a powerful authenticity, but some of his finest material is found on albums like 2003’s Miracle of Forgetting. “The Ending” is the album’s lead track and it’s also our song of the week, a reminder of Eric’s extended history of writing beautiful, honest songs that meet us where we are and remind us of a greater hope. In addition to the album stream below, check out this acoustic version via Under the Radar as well.

“The Ending” by Eric Peters from the album Miracle of Forgetting

today came in earnest

with a smile on its face wry as it was cunning pure as it was base

now my days are numbered like the sands in the sea I held onto hoping as long as hope held onto me

it came with a thunder but it made not a sound it came down like an angel from heaven to the cold, cold ground

don’t say it’s over when the world’s gone mad I’ve seen the ending and it’s not so bad don’t say it’s over when you lose your heart cause the ending is where you start

the world lost its reason the sky laid to waste all that was hopeless is borne on your face

it hurts every moment in the fight for your life keep your chin up hoping it’s the life of the fight

don’t say it’s over when the world’s gone mad I’ve seen the ending and it’s not so bad don’t say it’s over when you lose your heart

I want to know why we fall so hard and why hope for tomorrow can seem so far away

don’t say it’s over when the world’s gone mad I’ve seen the ending and it’s not so bad don’t say it’s over when you lose your heart ’cause the ending is where we start
