You can sit around and wait for the phone to ring (at the end of the line)
Waiting for someone to tell you everything (at the end of the line)
Sit around and wonder what tomorrow will bring (at the end of the line)
Maybe a diamond ring
Well, it’s alright, even if they say you’re wrong
Well, it’s alright, sometimes you gotta be strong
The lyrics above belong to the final track, End of the Line, on their debut album, Traveling Wilburys Vol.1, released in October 1988. They were a band consisting of Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison and Tom Petty.
Wrong or strong, each of us will move to the end of the line one day. I think it is more important how one gets there.
It doesn’t do much good waiting for a phone to ring at the end of the line or to have someone to tell you everything. Rather than sitting around and wondering what tomorrow will bring, I chose to take part in shaping tomorrow, today.
Example: “Silent Stones” is one of the music pieces I composed and produced under the project “Ears to Eyes” to be used by film students as music for their short films.
Stones might be silent or not but hopefully I won’t be, until I reach the end of the line. ☺
