about

I wrote this song a long time ago, but once again it needed a place to be. It's not about anyone particular, but it is a reaction to a musician who played after me at an open mic when I was just starting out playing in public. turned out that I kind of liked it. I hope you do too.

See you next year. Be safe and be happy.

Make it Back to Make it up to You
By: Martin Gilmore (Timtomtodd Music, ASCAP) 2008

I’ve been lost and lone for most of my days
I’ve been wondering free in a blind dismal haze
I don’t know where you are but someday I’ll find a way
To make it back to make it up to you
To make it back to make it up to you

I’ve been lost so long and lonely that my heart feels pain
And if I do not find you I will go insane
I would walk through the snow the sleet the wind or the rain
To make it back to make it up to you
To make it back to make it up to you

Sing a song for tomorrow of yesterday
Of happier times before I went away
Of things I knew then that I shouldn’t say
But I said them anyway

It was night time in springtime
When I left you all alone and said you were not mine
I can still hear the sound of the door behind me
Saying you’ll make it back to make it up to her
You’ll make it back to make it up to her

It was a stupid fight on a moonlit night
I left you all alone out of a jealous spite
But the fog has cleared and I’ve regained my sight
To make it back to make it up to you
To make it back to make it up to you

Chorus

Now I’m out here on the street in the pouring rain
Rehearsing and repeating what I’m gonna say
I hope that somehow I can find a way
To make it back to make it up to you
To make it back to make it up to you
