Song of Redemption

This song is by Woods of Ypres and appears on the album Woods III: Deepest Roots and Darkest Blues (2008).

I am not, that good anymore, and maybe I never was
But I'll play my heart out for you, one more time
For in my old age, all I can do is play for you a song from my youth

So let me share my gift, with you once more
Just like we had in the past, so many times before

My hands may shake, my muscles are weak
I'm not strong as I used to be
But still I will play for you, and leave you with a song
For when you have music you're never alone

Let me share my gift, with you once more
Just like we had in the past, so many times before
The song of redemption is all that I am
For in the end, the music is all that I have

And though it feels incomplete, the deadline has come for me
I must present to you, My 'masterpiece'...
For time is short in my condition, the song of redemption
Will be the final composition, from this tired musician

Please give me your attention and I will remedy, this silent tension
And I hope that you will remember
I hope the memories will leave a lasting impression
Of me, when I'm gone. Gone. After I am gone

I don't need to concentrate, I can close my eyes
And though you'll hear this song but once
I've rehearsed it, a thousand times

But what will you say, after I'm done?
After I've attempted to play the song of redemption
And what will you say, after I'm gone?
After I've attempted to play the song of redemption
