THE DAMAGE IS DONE - THE STORY OF THE SONG

ABOUT THE SONG

The concept of this song came to me one day and I thought about it; I wrote the idea on paper and put it away for a time and returned to it to edit it again.  This cycle repeated many times to get it to where it is today.  I think the rewrite becomes important at times and this song is an example of the rewrite process.  The song started to take shape as a blues type song and the melody came.

This song is a hurtful song where a relationship has gone bad.  An individual is licking his wounds trying hard to get over it but this isn't very successful.
