about

This is a song written, recorded, produced, and uploaded on all on a single day, Sunday, December 18, 2016. Featuring my brand new Hohner melodica, given to me as an early Christmas gift by my beloved wife before she left town for the weekend. The temperature outside has fluctuated between -2 and 16 degrees (F). I stayed indoors and worked on this. I love you, gilly. Merry Christmas, everyone.

T. Duggan wrote, performed, produced and mixed the song, and also played the acoustic guitars, slide guitar, bass guitar, drum kit, melodica, and vocals. Dog barks by Nico.

Track Name: The Only Ones
So you're making another wish for Christmas?
If it doesn't come, just wait another year
I've been waiting for something since I opened my eyes
I still expect no big surprise
Just a reason to hope, a purpose, and some wisdom

That's what I hear
We're not the only ones
We're not the only ones who care

Gimme something other than a common enemy:
Singing birds, human faces, or scenery
If we allowed ourselves to love, would our hearts explode?
Would our minds fly away and leave our bodies cold?
If the world went 'round...
would life go by too fast?

That's what I hear
We're not the only ones
We're not the only ones who care

Who's gonna save us?
Who's gonna save us now?
Who's gonna save us from ourselves?

What will they say if we make it from Earth to wherever?
Have we made up our mind
to tend the garden we've been given?
Look at my hands and see I'm powerless
To make a dent in such a mess
If only all the people got together

That's what I hear
We're not the only ones
We're not the only ones who care

So, you're making another wish for Christmas...
