So I was sitting on my couch after work tonight, I don't know why but the concept for this song hit me out of nowhere. It's more of my usual desperately sad stuff about looking over the edge of a cliff at my favorite go-to spot where I like to go when I'm sad or lonely. I have a tune in my head but I haven't even begun to try to pick out an instrumental for it. Hopefully soon, though! I may even add another four lines or merely replace four of the existing lines. In deciphering the lyrics, you'll see in the chorus the word "jump" is repeated in parenthesis; this represents the word "Jump" being said once and then repeated in a fading-echo fashion through a delay filter. The word "spirit'ial" represents the word "spiritual" being abbreviated/slurred to three syllables instead of four. I only spent about two hours on this, so I'm sure it could use some polishing up.

As always - be honest, be brutal, any little nit-picky thing let me know about it!

“Jump”
Approx 63BPM

[Verse 1]
It’s a long, long way, to the end of the trail
He’s done it all before, he’ll know when he is there
A maple covered mountain top, a view that goes for miles
Is where he’ll go when he needs to know if he can even smile
Anymore

And there’s a million leaves on a thousand trees
He takes in every one, the changing red and green
And far below a river flows, his fav’rite place to be
It’s where he’ll go when he needs to know if he can even smile
Anymore

[Pre-Chorus 1]
He stops and bows his head to think
It’s been another year
The wind is warm and welcoming
It whispers in his ear

[Chorus]
Jump (jump…jump…)
It’s the calling of the void
Jump (jump…jump…)
What he came here to avoid
He could take a step; he could almost fly
He could walk away; and refuse to die
or Jump (jump…jump…)
Jump (jump…jump…)

[Verse 2]
It’s a long life span, to become a frail old man
Far too long to make it, when no one holds your hand
A melancholy permanence, a mournful many years
Is what he owns, why he never knows, if he can ever smile
Anymore

[Pre-Chorus 2]
The echo of his cries return
from out across the way
To let go of his painful yearn
And spirit’ial decay

[CHORUS]
Jump (jump…jump…)
It’s the calling of the void
Jump (jump…jump…)
What he came here to avoid
He could take a step; he could almost fly
He could walk away; and refuse to die
or Jump (jump…jump…)
Jump (jump…jump…)

[Bridge]
And isn’t it ironic, he came here all this way
To fix his biggest failure, but chose to walk away

[Verse 3]
And it’s a long, long way, from the edge of the world
To a cold and empty dwelling, for a sadness so unfurled
Uncertainty possesses him, why didn’t he atone
His curs-ed bones car-ry him home, but he’ll prob’ly never smile
Anymore
