One for the road

The road to Limnonari beach (copyright of the picture belongs to Max Mury)

Max and Elli Mury were great friends with Apostolis Kosifis who unfortunately died the end of December 2021. Max, together with musician and restaurant owner Panagiotis Asteriadis of Skopelos have made this song for Apostolis who had a favorite saying: “one for the road”

Hear the song dedicated to Apostolis; one for the road.

The lyrics of the song:


We‘ve been friends for so long

but we didn’t had a chance to carry on

known each other pretty well

and we met all the years the same place I can tell

celebrating our life

and time was always on our side

sitting here having fun

raising our glasses yamas and then goodbye

and you said

One for the road

And another one we take for Hope

and you said

One for the asphalt road

and another one for the long and dusty road

We saw the sun rising up and we shared our minds

and we never had enough

time was endless in these times

we felt invincible we had the best part of our life

hard to tell that that’s all gone

and for me that island will be a different one

but I’m sure when I get back

I will go where we always used to stay and

I will hear you say

One for the road

And another one we take for Hope

and I will hear you say

One for the asphalt road

and another one for the long and dusty road❤
