DEADLINE

By Geza Keller
and Jerry McCann

This song came out of the same prolific songwriting period of 2011, when Geza's personal life was in transition.

It was inspired by an experience in which he was told that an important decision he'd made had come too late. He should have made a decision 30 days earlier, a deadline that not only seemed random, but also came as a complete surprise. 

LYRICS: 

Didn’t know there was a deadline

Didn’t ask for 30 more days

All I know is loves on hold

On that day you walked away

 

Didn’t know there was a deadline

Didn’t ask for 30 more days

All I know is loves on hold

When there was so much left to say

 

I have loved you more than you will ever know

But then you’d say that you love me more

 

Stand in an emotional breadline

Searching for some love to survive

All I know, is when love goes cold

There's nothing left to keep us alive

 

Just remember what I was going through

And I know there’s nothing I could ever do

To make up for the way that I was hurting you

I’ll be living with what I know you’ve got to do

 

Reading between the headlines, There's always more than meets the eye.

the truth is a plain as the nose on your face

And nothing can replace the lie

 

I know you love me and will forever more

I’m still chasing your rainbow out the door

 

We went looking beyond the questions

And found there's nothing left to hide. 

If we can see beyond the answer

There's a chance that our love can survive.

 

Didn’t know there was a deadline, Didn’t ask for 30 more days

All I know is love's on hold

On that day you walked away

Video production is underway. Stay tuned!
