about

When you share your life with your friends and family, you’re writing stories together with them. When one of those friends or family members dies or disappears from your life for other reasons, there is no other way than to continue and finish those stories on your own. Aren’t you curious how the stories continue?

In dedication to my father who passed away after years of suffering Alzheimer’s disease, and to others lost along the way.

lyrics

Dearly beloved, we're gathered here today
To talk about a book we loved to death
Reflecting on the message of the pen
Its stories read over and over again

But this book is not just about somewhere else
Starring each and every single one of us
Pages filled with our own memories, masterplans
Never forgotten, no not ever and ever again

It's up to us to write the sequel, It's up to us to live unfinished stories
As we are the writers, the actors and the audience all in one

Sadly enough some books are no longer near
Before we finish them they seem to have disappeared
Or you find out they have an open end
When you turn the last page over and over again

It's up to us to write the sequel, It's up to us to live unfinished stories
The future is unwritten, let's try to write
It's up to us to write the sequel, It's up to us to live unfinished stories
As we are the writers, the actors and the audience all in one

But as with everything, when books get older their pages crumble
Blank spots, dried out ink, when books get older they disassemble
But as with everything, when we get older we start to stumble
Blind eyes, dried out skin, what is left are the words and what we'll remember
