When It Ends In A Walk

Walk the pressley girls

Back before the first of the year I was stirring around the house when I heard the catchiest tune coming from Chatter’s room. I knocked on her door and said “I like that where’d you learn it?” She sheepishly looked at me and said “I wrote it.” I said “WHAT!!!??? You wrote that? I LOVE IT!” And after hearing it for the last 6 months I still love it.

When it Ends in a Walk written by C. Pressley

Our days were numbered and they were few
But it felt like the start of something new
You had to leave and go back home
But it left me here wondering to roam

Sometimes love happens fast
And its hard to make it last
And its easy to laugh and its easy to talk
But its hard when it ends in a walk

Talking about life with you made me feel understood
And I would trade everything for another day if I could
Its funny how love can be even when its going to end
You still follow it through the dark and around the bend

Sometimes love happens fast
And its hard to make it last
And its easy to laugh and its easy to talk
But its hard when it ends in a walk

As you walked me to the end of the road to say goodbye
All of our adventures flashed before my eyes
But it was worth it every time
Because the memories we made will forever be mine

Sometimes love happens fast
And its hard to make it last
And its easy to laugh and its easy to talk
But its hard when it ends in a walk

It’s hard when it ends when it ends in a walk

Hope you enjoyed the song!

    You’re certainly not the only fan of the song “When It Ends In A Walk”, It’s my granddaughter’s favorite song!

    Dears Girls: Very nice song, I listened without looking at the video, and I thought they were not sisters Presley, but it was a disk of Andrew sisters !!! Beautiful girls! (If you do not know who were the Andrew sisters, ask Pap, and for him a hug and continue to improve), from Buenos Aires, Jose Luis.

    Chatter, the guitar player, really
    did good writing this song. When
    Chitter joined in, the harmony was
    just right. You have a right to be
    proud of your girls and they both
    seem to know where they’re going.

    Now that’s a real toe tapper! Good job girls!!
    I can relate because my first love ended in a walk on the campus of Young Harris College many years ago. I was still a senior in Highschool and my first love went off to college at YH. She broke my heart when she told me it was over.
    Oh well, broken hearts and first loves have been the topic of many songs. Looking back it seems childish but at the time you think life is over. To my first love Lori, I hope life has treated you kind and thanks for being my first love!!

    What a cute song, and so true too. I hope Chatter gets to make something of it.
    God bless.

    Wow So much talent in one place. We love it and I know each time you sing it you will tweak it a bit here and there until it is prefect. Not to say it isn’t now but oh you what I’m saying. lol

    How nice to be able to see and hear this terrific new song — when I was reading about you hearing it, Tipper, and then reading the words, I was wishing I might hear it, too. Then, lo and behold: the video! Thanks to all three of you.

    Very enjoyable post, Tipper. Chatter obviously came by her song-writing honest (have any of you ever counted how many songs Pap has written?)
    Their harmony is greater than the sum of its parts, although each girl has a very pretty voice. Chatter’s guitar playing continues to improve.
    But I’ve also got to say that the photo is, simply outstanding. You may have done a little bit of digital softening or color enhancement (or maybe not – doesn’t really matter). The composition – one girl (looks like Chitter) trailing slightly, a road soon to divide, and mountains forever in the background – absolutely fantastic.

    Well Tipper: Chitter brought me to tears even as I was reading the lyrics. This is the most meaningful song and as we say over here in the Cumberland Mountains ‘STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART!’

    Wow! is my reaction! I’m glad you “eavesdropped” and heard Chitter early-on when she was writing/composing/designing the music for this song! I think they have a winner. She so well expresses that important phase of a life-situation when something meaningful and memorable “ends in a walk.” Thank you for sharing. Now I’ve got the tune running through my head. I especially like the slur and holding onto the har—r—r-rd in the chorus! Congratulations! I hope they’re submitting some of their originals (and especially this one) for publication.
