Let Go

this is the first song i have written for the new year, 2011. Woot!
Its about love, change, acceptance, denial and loss (in some ways about me being a control freak… 🙂

Its also the first song I have sung since laryngitis so the voice is a lil shakey.. 🙂

Love always and musically yours
James Scanlon

More Time (Lyrics)

Scorch the sun from the sky
blank the stars at night
feel the world stop spinning
nothing left for to fight
oxygen fading like the eyes in your head
temperature rising before we are dead

give me more time
give me more time (give me more time)
give me more time 175
give me more time

here we are now at the end of all things
life as we know it and all that it brings
nothing left to do but stop fighting and see
time standing still for you and for me

give me more time
give me more time (give me more time)
give me more time 175
give me more time

Perfect Stranger (Lyrics)

VERSE1
walking down the street today and i spy you
and im totally certain that you feel it too
oh god help me it must be the time of day
LA LA LA LAH
when all the women come out and theyre on display

CHORUS
your my perfect stranger
so your my perfect stranger
LA LA LAL LAH
your my perfect stranger
your my perfect stranger
WOW!

VERSE2
so now you know baby im singing this for you
i see you looking, see you walking seeing all of you
oh pretty lady come on and over give me a kiss
so sexy lady come on i promise not to miss

CHORUS
shes still my perfect stranger
wo oh
shes still my perfect stranger
oh god it hurts now my perfect stranger
LA LA LA LAH
shes still my perfect stranger

VERSE3
so in my stupid arrogance shes turning away
RAOOAROW – read the signs wrong saw the language but cant hide my shame
now im hurting baby, i just dont know what to do
my life has been so sweet simply just because of you

CHORUS
shes was my perfect stranger
she was my perfect stranger
now i cant chase her i dont even know her name
she was my perfect stranger

The Grand Design (lyrics)

stuck and confined
nothing but time and thoughts for company
find the elementary beginning of life and time
where are we from why are we here?
lives ignite and flicker like the sun
and fade like the night
as we are searching for the grand design
searching for the grand design
searching for the grand design
searching for the grand design

New Found Appreciation (Lyrics)

VERSE ONE
My new found appreciation
For the air I breathe
For the smiles I see
For the life I used to lead
Don’t leave it to me
As I need that constant reminding
To be better, to be better, to be better than I am
So lucky now
That life’s still in my grasp
That the world hasn’t faded so fast
That I can see you all once more
CHORUS
With my new found appreciation x2
VERSE TWO
News was disappointing but glad there was a cause
Waiting so desperately in desolate hallways and long corridors
Could this be the last holiday that I get to adore?
Sitting there lonely, in pain on the cold vinyl hospital floors
CHORUS x1
VERSE THREE
I think of times gone by and
Of new generations
That shall see a world, that will know a world
That I shall never know
I look to the future
The past has flown by
There still so many things in this only life
That I have yet to try
I have looked fear in the face
And I have conquered the pain
I only hope that I can stay on track
And keep up the change
CHORUSx1
OUTRO
My new found appreciation x3
For the air I breathe
My new found appreciation
For the smiles I see
My new found appreciation

Be With You (Lyrics)

INTRO
Just wanna be with you
Wanna see you tonight
Just wanna be with you
Wanna see you tonight
I just wanna be with you
Wanna see you tonight
Just wanna be with you
Just wanna be with you
VERSE ONE
Every time in my life I see her face
I just die inside
Then she tells me that she’s leaving
She’s going back home
What am I to do?
VERSE TWO
See everything about you girl
It’s the way that I am when im with you
Oh, how I feel
So can you not see that it’s my selfish motivations?
I just can’t control myself!
CHORUS
Just wanna be with you
Wanna see you tonight and every night
And I just can’t live without you
Oh don’t go away
Lets live for today
VERSE THREE
And so everything
In my life
Has lost so much significance
Yeah the only thing that matters now
Is the time I spend with you
Oh baby help me
CHORUS
VERSE1
Every time in my life I see her face
I just die inside
Then she tells me that she’s leaving
She’s going back home
What am I to do? (What am I to do?)
CHORUS
OUTRO
Just wanna be with you x4
