Story behind the song
When Nick originally wrote these lyrics, he commented that he didn't think he'd ever record or play it so I wrote some music for it as my gift to him.
Lyrics
One By One - Torres / Hodge Put the tape in and push play Sit back and watch what used to be Hit the remote rewind the times To friends that now are memories Kodak moments stuck in books A shutter snaps to catch the light Formaldehyde for those who pass And fade away without a fight I remember all your names And all the dumb things we would say Under the lights on any stage While one by one you fade away And even though I'm not like you We all were brothers of the stage Sharing the laughs applause and tears As one by one you died of AIDS And as this show comes to its end I don't try to wipe my eyes I just rewind the tape again 'Cause I refuse to say goodbye I remember all your names And all the dumb things we would say Under the lights on any stage While one by one you fade away I remember all your names And all the dumb things we would say Under the lights on any stage Instrumentation: Vocals (lead and harmony), Acoustic Guitar, Acoustic Slide Guitar, Electric Guitar, Bass Guitar, Dayan by David
