No More Goodbyes


Music: Mike Deak, Lyrics: Janice Jarrett

We all know that a vast majority of songs are about love – love lost, love found, love longed for, etc. This song is about the pain of lost love between a couple who have a deep but troubled relationship. They share a love that is difficult to let go of, a love that both tried to make work, but that eventually ended in separation. “Once again, to not look back at the sweetness that we had. How near we came to what we all dream of – to love how I once loved you.” (Mike, the composer plays piano on the clip).

Michael Deak studied vibes with Bobby Hutcherson as a teen and played them professionally until adding the piano after the landmark “Kind of Blue” album in 1959 came out and he heard the inspirational pianist Bill Evans. By the time he won 1st place for vibes in several Lighthouse Jazz Festivals, he was already composing, and eventually won awards for both jazz and classical works. Two of his guitar works, performed by Gregg Nestor and Ray Burley, can be found on Cambria’s “Kaleidoscope” CD. While Jarrett was in California, Mike came to hear her group Borrowed Time, and their lyric and song collaborations began. Currently, there are 8 in varying styles in the Shop, but Mike continues to send new compositions to work on, so more may appear in the future.
