The Story behind the music: "Here Comes Goodbye"

Clint Lagerberg is literally the smartest, most incredible writer I've ever had the chance to write with - and over the last year, I've gotten to write with a lot of really, really great writers. And, no, I'm not just saying that because Clint cowrote the song that just got cut by Rascal Flatts. I was saying that long before Flatts ever put our song on hold and even longer before Flatts released the song as their first single for their upcoming album Unstoppable (due April 7).  

Clint was my cowriter on Empty Me the first single from my record Running Back to You that came out almost a year ago now.  When we wrote together the first time, I was blown away by his discipline and his attention, not to every detail but every detail that mattered.  

In April of last year, Clint and I had a writing session on the books.  When I got to his house in Spring Hill, he told me about this new program he had devised to try and get a cut on the Rascal Flatts album, which he knew was looking for songs at the time.  He had gone through every Flatts song and come up with an entire album's worth of titles.  With each title, he had a basic idea for the song, a line or two for each one, and a feel (up-tempo, ballad, etc.) for each one.  Genius.

The one that I gravitated toward was a title "Here Comes Goodbye".  Clint had the idea that a guy hears his lover coming up the driveway and slowly figures out that she's saying goodbye.  The line he had written down was "here comes goodbye."

With those elements as a GREAT starting point, we sat down and spent the next couple of hours trying to figure out how to word it.  Clint had the first line: "I can hear the truck tires coming up the gravel road".  For the next line we wanted to give the feeling that something was wrong.  It took us nearly an hour of throwing things around (and getting on rabbit trails talking about music) before we settled on "and it's not like her to drive that slow with nothing on the radio".  We thought maybe it should be about a sad song on the radio.  We threw out female artist's names with lines like "...with Loretta on the radio" and "...and Martina's on the radio".  Finally we settled on nothing being on the radio.

We then wanted to create the sense that with each footstep, with each sound, the dread is building up in the protagonist's mind.  We tossed around and tossed out several ideas before landing on "footsteps on the front porch, now I hear my doorbell; she usually comes right in, now I can tell".  How better to paint a picture of something being wrong than the fact that your girlfriend/significant other usually comes in but she's now ringing the door bell.  And suddenly our guy knows that he and her are through.

The line "Here comes goodbye" is a great line, but we struggled with where to go.  We spent close to an hour going back and forth with different approaches.  Once we know goodbye is here, how do we paint a picture of heartbreak?  After a while, I remember suggesting we treat goodbye like an animate object, and then treat other things that come with break up like animate objects.  It became "...here comes the last time, here comes the start of every sleepless night, the first of every tear I'm gonna cry...here comes the pain."  Those 4 lines took us forever, but once we had them we knew we had something special.

We ended the chorus with taking it almost into the future: "Here comes me wishing things hadn't ever changed and she was right here in my arms tonight...here comes goodbye."  As we wrote it, I remember singing through what we had and getting chills, thinking that this song was approaching love lost in a way that I hadn't seen before.  Like I said, Clint is a genius.

Clint has a great project/demo studio in his house, with lots of toys (guitars, keys, etc.).  I was playing piano and he was playing acoustic.  And we had written an entire treatment of the verse music that was really good, but somehow wasn't kicking our butts like the chorus music was.  I mean, we would sing through the chorus and get chills...the verse didn't really do the same thing.

I had to leave because my parents were in town, and Clint was going to have me lay down the piano part to have so we didn't forget it.  His daughter, Abby, was downstairs and was being really quiet...with 5 year olds, when they're quiet it usually means trouble, so Clint went to go check on her.  As he went downstairs, I began messing around with a piano part that I had had in my bank for a while, just messing around.  Clint came back up (Abby is an angel, and was just playing quietly) and I remember telling him that next time we got together we should write a song to this piano riff.  He listened for a little bit, then told me to try it with the verse lyric.  And boom!  It fit like a glove.  We threw out the old verse music and I laid down what is now the opening haunting piano riff at the beginning of the song.

After I laid down the part, I left and hung out with my parents.  The next morning, Clint called me and said, "Man, I think I just wrote the 2nd verse last night without you."  I was a little disappointed at first, 'cause I LOVE the chase of finding the right thing to say in the second verse.  But my disappointment soon turned to elation, when he read me this lyric:

"I can hear her say I love you like it was yesterday
And I could see it written on her face that she had never felt this way
One day I thought I'd see her with her daddy by her side
And violins would play 'Here Comes the Bride'
But...here comes goodbye..."

We were both silent for a second and then I cleared the lump from my throat and said, "Dude, we just wrote our first big hit, didn't we?"

The next day, we got together and wrote the bridge.  The day after that Sean McConnell (a good friend of Clint's and another amazing singer/songwriter - google him NOW) came into Clint's studio and sang the demo.  The morning after that, Clint and I turned it into our publishers.  And later that day I got a call from my publisher saying that Joe Don Rooney (Flatts' guitar player) had heard the song, loved it and put it on hold!  I flipped out...once I figured out what it meant to have a song on hold.

Then, came the long, long wait.  Finally at the beginning of November, my publisher called me and told me that Dann Huff (the producer) had called saying, "We just cut the crap out of your song!"  I knew what that meant!  And I was elated!

Now, lots of songs get cut for huge projects like this.  But not all of them make the record.  So, we weren't in the clear yet.  Last week, my publisher called me and said, "I just talked to Dann Huff and asked him if our song had made the record."  At this point, my heart started to pound, because my publisher sounded very sad.  She sighed.  "He said that he wasn't sure if it was gonna make the record."  She paused and my heart sank.  Then she continued, "But he said we'll know by Thursday if it's the first or second single!!!"  And I was in shock.

Then on Wednesday, I was driving to Atlanta for a show and got the phone call from my publisher again..."It's the first single!"  And I almost drove off the road.

For those of you who like to look at your Rascal Flatts while you're listening to this awesome song...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yK5Fr97QQbs

Let me know when we can put up the NLR version, which is oh, so awesome. BTW, got the concert video from Lennon, and wow, just wow.

risalea said...

I got chills reading this account. It's like birthing your first baby. You even had to wait 9months!

I am SO proud for you, friend. Man, why'd you have to make me tear up again...I'm not wearing my waterproof mascara! : )

Carianne said...

Wow, Chris. What an awesome post. I I really loved getting this step-by-step insider's look into what it took to write this beautiful song. I felt like I was right there with you. Thank you so much for sharing that with us!

Badpacifist said...

Chris sometimes you almost put us there with you. What an honor to even know where this blog is on the internet.

BBC said...

I love your account of creating a new song! It's awesome, absolutely awesome. And you nearly drove off the road? Great ending. You bring us along for the ride. What an honor. Thank you!

Cathy Storms said...

Wow...What an amazing story. Thank you so much for letting us come along with you every step of the way. This song brings tears to my eyes everytime I hear it and just reading some of the lines leaves a lump in my throat.
Thanks again Chris. I can't even tell you how proud I am of you...

HstryQT said...

Wow it's fantastic to hear the whole story with all the little details. That just makes the song even more fantastic. Risa, great analogy - I agree :).

EmilyBoo said...

As always, it's such a pleasure hearing about the whole behind the scenes process.

Risa, I can't wait to see the version of Here Comes Goodbye from last weekend!

EmilyBoo said...

Off topic, but...

Here's a little tidbit I just dug up about Arise, as I was curious... It is currently the #12 song at my local Christian station. I've only heard it once (on the way to church a couple weeks ago.) I just checked today's song log for the station and found out they played it at 6:35 this morning. If they had played it 10 minutes later, I would have heard it on my alarm clock!

Hischild said...

How I LOVE being a fly on the wall at writing sessions!
Thanks for opening the window WIDE for me to enter, Chris.
You're so awesome!

Thanks for the story. Not a big country fan...but I'll listen now.

Amy's Purple Poodles said...

Chris-I think it is so awesome you're going to have a song on Rascal Flatts' album! I love hearing the stories you tell. Like some others have said, its cool to hear about what goes on behind the scenes. For you to share this with us is so wonderful! I think you should write a book one day about your experiences.

risalea said...

Yes, it was worth the wait...
for your listening and viewing pleasure (and let me just say, he was just warming up in NC and saved his spot on perfect performance for AR)

The shrieks...well you know the blogger girls have a hard time being quiet.

Just found Sean McConnell on Rhapsody and am listening to 200 Orange St album.
Reminds me a lot of Josh Wilson.
He's really GREAT. Thanks for the recommend, Chris. Everybody do as he says. Look him up.

Tawny said...

Thanks for letting us know the proccess of what went into writing the song, to waiting and then finding out the awesome news. As always, your writing makes us be able to visualize the situation so well.

Thanks Risa for posting that! It's really cool getting to hear Chris' version compared to RF's, both Chris & Gary are great singers.

HstryQT said...

Risa thanks for posting the video -I've been waiting all week since I couldn't be there for it! That was amazing! I can see why you all were piles of mush by the end. I really hope he puts it on some album somewhere eventually!

rosalee said...

Thanks Chris, for the background on the song. And thanks, Risa, for the video. That was a beautiful version.

Risa~Thanks for posting the video. Tears are streaming....
Loved knowing that the screams of delight are coming from the blogger girls....

I love Rascal Flatts, but Chris, you knock that song right out of the park..It's a must for your new CD...

rosalee said...

I just got back from Sanjaya's book signing at my favorite Long Island book store.

Hey Chris - regards from Sanjaya. He asked how you were doing and I told him about the Rascal Flatts news.

The store was full of screaming pre-teens and teenagers. I waited on line for an hour to get to talk to him for what felt like about three seconds. It was very rushed.

I just was over at vftw for fun and they had the link to "Here comes Goodbye" about 3 pages in. They had very nice things to say about Chris

risalea said...

Next video from last weekend-"Let You Know" with a little banter with the crowd. Without exception, I have had so many comments that people loved Chris's humor as well as his singing.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VndZ782CTvM

These are taking FOREVER to load. I had to do this one 3 times before it "took".

risalea said...

If you want to laugh, watch this one:

Rosalee first introduced us to this song when she saw Chris in Albany. Still funny!

That's it for tonight. Night, all!

Badpacifist - Chris won over the vftw commentors months ago. These days the always have nice things to say.

Cathy Storms said...

Risa!love the video. The band is having so much fun and they sound awesome. I also remember how much fun we were having in the audience singing along with them. I guess it's a good thing they didn't pick up our voices. lol......

EmilyBoo said...

Rosalee, I can barely see "Chris" in that picture!

rosalee said...

EmilyBoo -

"Chris" got a little camera shy at the last minute. But he did have fun with the Fanjayas on line. LOL

Actually, there was no time for a good set-up. I was lucky to get the shot that I got.

Nique's Nana said...

Enjoyed your story Chris. I always love to hear the backstory on how a song was developed. To me, it gives more meaning to the song.

As I said before, I'm not a country/western fan, but I have been known to buy a country/westen cd (Hank Willimas, Patsy Cline, Reba MacIntyre) so I'm up for buying a Rascal Flats cd. I for sure will be buying the single "Here Comes Goodbye".

Thanks again Chris, for sharing with us.

risalea said...

Sorry I'm having to do these one or two at a time...here's some of the intro music, "Cry Tonight" and "Arise" in one clip, so it's fairly long.

Thanks, GDA for giving me the hint that if you add &fmt=18 to the end of the youtube url, it will show in high quality if available, without you having to click the link to watch in high quality.

Cathy Storms said...

Risa~Thanks so much for posting the videos from the concert last weekend. They really are awesome!!!!

Wendy said...

Chris, I have tears in my eyes, after listening to the song and then reading how it was written. My best friend actually found out her husband was leaving her when he came home one day and, instead of walking in the front door, he rang the doorbell. That line gives me chills, and the line where the singer muses he had hoped to see her with her daddy and "the violins playing here comes the bride" - for some reason that reminded me of the Carrie Underwood video for "Just a Dream." Your song will make a wonderful video! And Gary leVox's voice conveys the heartbreak of the words incredibly. So happy for you and your wife!

Per your twitter on all your new followers: Chris, dude (to borrow a phrase from sista' DJ)...HELLO, you're getting crossover country fans from your Rascal Flatts connection. (I really should be in the music business. LOL)

Here's the last song from the NLR concert I'm putting up for now:
"Broken and Beautiful"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yQD2de73PF8&feature=channel_page&fmt=18

Oh, and I THOUGHT we had a new family member named Chris Sligh, Sligh for short. My son brought home a half lab pup from one of his friends, intending to train him to (don't read the next line, Rosalee)

duck hunt.

Son knew I was not very happy about the unexpected arrival, so he said I could name the dog to try and pacify me. Today, I find out he's calling the dog BUBBA! LOL I think I'm gonna' call him Bubba Sligh.

Cathy Storms said...

Your tweeter message. Yeah as in the words of DJ, dude...your everywhere on the internet. Anytime Rascal Flatts is mentioned, so are you..It's totally awesome!!! Now you need to get them on the blog and just think of all the new people we could have at the picnic. Could be pretty awesome...
Go Chris....
Risa, Bubba Sligh..We already named one of Koi Bubba Sligh....great minds think alike...

risalea said...

For those of you with satellite radio, my friend, Nancy, (who is the JL president this year and my partner in crime in getting ready for the concert), said she is hearing it on XM 16...and she almost drove off the road the first time, too. (a common reaction with this song, so stay safe out there, people! LOL)

Tell your friend, thanks, Lori...I can take no credit...a great performer (goes without saying) and a great videographer (thanks, Lennon!) Hopefully seeing that on places like mj's will spur those itune sales when it's available.

Cathy Storms said...

It's on the radio here in California right now!!! KSON...If I were driving I would of gone off the road!!I almost fell out of my chair....WhooHoo!! It's awesome!!!
I feel like a proud mama....OK, maybe a proud Aunt....

I don't really listen to country music very often. But since I have been listening most of the morning, they have some really SAD songs....

Badpacifist said...

Yes lots of sad songs no wonder them folks drink!

risalea said...

Cathy, that's cause as Steve Goodman and David Allen Coe said one time, the perfect country song has to say something about "Momma, or trains, or trucks, or prison, or getting
drunk." And they should have added "lost love". You notice Chris and Clint didn't say anything about the SUV coming up the gravel road. LOL

gdahimself said...

Risa,

This song could just as well be performed an arranged as Folk or Pop ballard.

I tend to think of Steve Goodman as Folk (Arlo Guthrie had his biggest hit single Goodman's "The city of New Orleans").

David Allen Coe, have heard of/from the overly tattooed one in awhile.

Cathy Storms said...

Risa~That's so true. I remember as a little girl listening to my dad sing country songs and I would cry and tell him to stop singing. Not because he was a bad vocalist but because the songs were so sad. It's actually a really fond memory. Till this day when I hear one of those old sad country songs he used to sing, I still cry....

Anonymous said...

I am so happy for you Chris. I love this song. I pray for your success.

risalea said...

Hey, just a quick note to ask that y'all remember folks in north Arkansas in your prayers. They were really hit hard by the ice storm and thousands are without power, including Amanda's mom, Tammy, who has been without power since Tuesday. We dodged the bullet in central AR, and other than patchy ices on the bridges, we've been fine. Also, apparently "Here Comes Goodbye is getting lots of airplay already...Tammy has heard it in NE AR and my son said he heard it on the radio yesterday (I've missed it). His comment..."it's pretty good." High praise from an 18 yr. old who THINKS he's an expert in the area of country music. (among other things! LOL) And Nancy said she has been hearing it on XM at least twice a day. WHOO HOO!

Cathy Storms said...

I've heard it a couple of times and hubby has also heard it a couple of times here in California...WhooHoo is right...

Will be praying for all those hit hard in this last storm....

Hey guys,
I just wanted to let you all know our good news with Teddy's kidney, since many of you have been with us since over a year ago when we first found out about it.
We had our very last urological procedure today- a VCUG (renal scan) to check how his kidneys have recovered since the surgery. (The procedure involves being strapped down with a cath in for an hour - but Teddy did great; he was a trooper).
The doctor was THRILLED with how well he's done. His kidneys are working great and he's only lost 6% functionality which is amazing considering how messed up everything was before. We're ALL done and the doctor isn't going to see us again until Teddy's 6 years old! And then it's just to see if he's REGAINED more functionality; that's right - because he's so young he has the potential of regrowing part of the kidney that was removed.
God is good!
Thank you all for your prayers during his surgery back in the fall and for being there for us through everything.
::Hugs:: to the Fro Patro :)

Lori

HstryQT ..So happy for Teddy. God is good.

Cathy Storms said...

Lori~That is awesome news. Yep, God is good.....I'm really excited for you...

Tawny said...

I never listen to the radio so I haven't heard HCG anywhere but I saw the good response on youtube.

Lori-That's great news! I can't believe Amelia will be 1 in 3 weeks & that Teddy's 1st birthday is month after hers.

julie said...

"and it's not like her to drive that slow with nothing on the radio".

What a GREAT line. Thanks for taking us step by step through the writing- it's a wonderful glimpse into how it works.

Chris...thanks so much for sharing the creation of this song. Everyone can relate to that endless ache of goodbye, and you guys captured it! Can't think of a better group of musicians than Flatts to do it justice.

Hey, I was wondering if I could get some basic sheet music of the vocals? Or is that top secret stuff? I just really love this song!

TERRY GOLDMAN said...

I was in San Diego on a small weekend getaway and discovered this song. I'm a huge RF fan and instantly fell in love with the song. I am wondering after seeing the video, why didn't the "story" of the video follow the "story" of the lyrics that were written?

Stephen said...

I just wanted to take a moment to comment about the song you wrote. This evening, March 17th, my family saw the video of "Here comes goodbye" for the first time. The way the video portrayed the song left all of us in tears. You see, this is the 9th aniv of the death of our oldest son who passed at 14. Thank you for putting into words the thoughts of our hearts.

lmt1073 said...

This is such an awesome song. And I relate when you say you got chill bumps. I get a feeling in the pit of my soul everytime I hear this song. You guys did a great job and I so cannot wait to hear more from you.

Although, I have a different story in my head when R.F. sings, it's still a great story being told.

Chris, thanks for posting this. It's a great look at the songwriting process. Plus you rightfully brag on my old buddy Clint. :) I'd love to link to this from my blog, http://singlouder.wordpress.com. Thanks again!

I don't understand the dying part of this song. I keep listening to it and thought it was about exactly what you said until I saw the video - then I thought it was about the goodbye of death????

Gosh Man! You two wrote such an awsome song, GooseBumps all over me if I hear it, just bought the record of Rascall Flats because of your song!! Even when I read the lyrics, I am in some (sad) emotional mood. Great Great Song! Greetings From The Netherlands!

thats a sweet story!!!

but what about the video????? do you know why theres a girl crying by gravstones cuz in your story you never said anything about anyone dieing and niether does the song.............................

Anonymous,

“Here Comes Goodbye”, Chris Sligh and Clint Lagerberg wrote only the song not the storyboard for the video. The script writer took the proverbial artistic license, look him up and get him to explain the action in the video. Sligh was as mystified as everyone else.

Anonymous said...

Oh my gosh, Chris! The song is truly one of the best. Just like you said, it captures your attention from the first line. You know the song is going to be sad yet you can't wait to hear the next line and the next. I don't usually post online, but I was looking up the backstories of "Here Comes Goodbye" and "Why" (haven't read that one yet). I happened to come across your page and you seemed so excited and happy about having co-written it. I'm excited and happy for you and look forward to hearing more of your work! :)

Sue said...

Glad I read this. I though the song was about death because of the video. I cried when I saw the video. Had no idea it was about lost love. Love this song and NOONE can sing it like Gary LeVox.
