The Final Countdown

from Look What You Made Me Do (2012) by Mailbox



I was running out of time to hit the 10-song or 35-minute mark. It was February 27th so I had to think differently. I figured I'd hit the mark by writing three really short songs. I requested titles of 80s tunes that I could write new songs around so that's what this trilogy is.

This first one has some serious astrophysics cred. When nerds fall in love, it's really epic.


When it all stretches out
As far as it will go
When red turns to blue
I'll be in Times Square
For the final countdown
Waiting for you.
