I always wait until we’re out of time
Speak my mind
Right before you go
So don’t hang up, there’s just one last thing
You’ve got to know
The above is from a new song called “Postscript,”
What I’m trying to get at is the urgency of the last moment, the magical thing that happens as a song fades out, the emotion right before you say goodbye to someone, or the waiting until the discussion is almost over to get to the point.
I guess these moments are just examples of people letting their guard down, the not getting to the good stuff until you’re almost out of time. The looming deadline, the cut-off at the end of a song, the speaking what’s really on your mind at the end of a conversation are all too important to miss.
