From the album Afterlife: The Evolution of a Song
Here is another chorus ending idea. This one moved in such a different direction it could serve as the basis for another song. It felt like it didn't fit with the rest of my Afterlife idea, but I liked it as stand-along musical phrase. I liked how the melody moved on this one. I think because the piano and other instruments were so rhythmic on this tune, I tried to keep the melody very simple. So I opted to lay this idea aside.
