about

The first proper James Gillice album. I'm still quite proud of this little collection of songs. Of course I had no idea what I was doing when I recorded these and it shows, but many of these songs still stand out to me as great tunes despite the glaring production flaws. There is a little bit of magic in this one that I can't quite explain.

Track Name: Let Me In
Midnight comes and takes me home
I know I'm not the only one
I just sat here waiting for the moment to arrive
But you weren't around
You weren't there when I needed you most

So take good care of all you have
I won't be back but you don't seem sad
I just got the answer to the question that I had
But you weren't around
You weren't there and it's making me sad

So come on come on come on come on
Come on come on now
Come on come on come on come on
Let Me In

Too many times you fall apart
Come crubling down and you break my heart
I had never thought of all the things that could go wrong
But you weren't there
You were never there all along

So come on come on come on come on
Come on come on now
Come on come on come on come on
Let Me In

(Take it away)

Come on come on come on come on
Come on come on now
Come on come on come on come on
Let Me In

Come on come on come on come on
Come on come on now
Come on come on come on come on
Let Me In
Track Name: Love Is On Its Way
Love is on it's way
I thought I heard you say
But the price of love is pain
I found out once again

So should I go insane
And try to play the game?
And if it's all in vain
Maybe I'll just stay away

You took my heart
You took my mind
You took my soul
I gave them all for you
I should have known you'd let me go

But ever since the day
That I first held you
I just couldn't tell you "no"
Love was on it's way
I saw love come
And then I watched it go

So take me as I am
Or as I may become
With all that's gone astray
I'm unsure of either one

So what is it to live?
And why's it have to be
In love how much you give
Is not what you receive?

You took my heart
You took my mind
You took my soul
I gave them all for you
I should have known you'd let me go

But ever since the day
That I first held you
I just couldn't tell you "no"
Love was on it's way
I saw love come
And then I watched it go

There's a reason for all of this
I just don't know what it is
And there's things I tell myself to get me by

But a voice somewhere inside
Whispers "you still need to try,
And when you find the one you love
Then you'll know why"

You took my heart
You took my mind
You took my soul
I gave them all for you
I should have known you'd let me go

But in the rain
I held you
And I couldn't tell you "no"
Love was on it's way
I saw love come
And then I watched it go

You took my heart
You took my mind
You took my soul
I gave them all for you
I should have known you'd let me go

But ever since the day
I held you
I just couldn't tell you "no"
Love was on it's way
I saw love come
And then I watched it go
Track Name: I Won't Let You Down
Close the door, leave the darkness behind
And I'm sorry I said words unkind
And if I could I'd give you diamonds and pearls
And if it was mine I would give you the world

That's not what you want
That's not what you need
But whatever you
That's what I wanna be

Take your time, I've nothing better to do
Than spending my life being patient with you
I swear I'll be all that you'll ever need
I give you my all and I give it for free

That's not what you want
And that's not what you need
But just what you want
Is a mystery to me

Sometimes I'm fine, sometimes I come undone
Sometimes I fight, sometimes I wanna run
When you're with me you make me feel free
When I'm with you I'm who I want to be

That's not what you want
That's not what you need
But whatever you
That's what I'm gonna be

No, I
No, I
No, I
No, I
No, I
No, I won't let you down
No, I won't let you down
No, I won't let you down
No, I won't let you down
No, I won't let you down
No, I won't let you down
Track Name: Some People
Don't worry, I promise I won't cry
Just tell me your reasons why
Don't look now there's something in my eye
I almost wish you would have lied

Some people were born to try
Some people were born to lie
But it looks like you were born to make me cry
And it looks like you were born to make me cry

I just thought, thought that you should know
I gave my all, I gave everything for you
How could I, how could I have ever known?
Known that I didn't mean that much to you?

Some people were born to try
Some people were born to lie
But it looks like you were born to make me cry
And it looks like you were born to make me cry

And you don't know all the reasons why
I only wanted you to try
And your excuses have run dry

Some people were born to try
Some people were born to lie
But it looks like you were born to make me cry
It looks like you were born to make me cry

Some people were born to try
Some people were born to lie
But it looks like you were born to make me cry
It looks like you were born to make me cry

You were born to make me cry
You were born to make me cry
You were born to make me cry
Born to make me cry
Track Name: Running Away
Well I knew that there was something
When you first touched my hand
But we run away from something
That we don't understand

I could tell that there was something
From the first time that we kissed
But we run away in case
There's something that we missed

And all that you wanted
Was someone to love you
And all that I wanted was you
It finally turned out
That you got what you wanted
But you ran away from that too
I saw that our love
It was falling apart
And there was nothing that I could do

So I ran
I ran away from you

Well I gave you everything
It was the easiest thing to do
And I would have kept on giving
If I'd have got anything from you

I ran away, I ran away
It was the hardest thing I've ever done
'Cause I wanted so badly
Just not to be had and
I thought that you might be the one

But all that you wanted
Was someone to love you
And all that I wanted was you
It finally turned out
That you got what you wanted
But you ran away from that too
I saw that our love
It was falling apart
And there was nothing that I could do

So I ran
I ran away from you
From you
From you
From you

When we first ran away together
I thought that time would last forever
But now we both know so much better
So we ran away from each other
Track Name: You Might Break My Heart
I remember us walking
And talking alone in the night
The stars in the sky
And the look in your eye
Said that everything was all right

In the warmth of the air
The smaell of your hair was just fine
We must have walked for an hour
Somehow I lost track of time

There's nothing I'd rather
Be than together with you
And there's nothing I'd rather
Have than forever with you

But all of my dreams
And everything fades into blue
And the way things are going
You might break my heart into two

You told me about
Your hopes and your doubts for a while
I looked at you
And all i could do was just smile

Yes it is true
I've felt this for you for some time
Am I just dreaming
Or is therre a chance you'll be mine
(With a little more time)

'Cause there's nothing I'd rather
Be than together with you
And there's nothing I'd rather
Have than forever with you

But all of my dreams
And everything revolves around you
And the way things are going
You might break my heart into two
And the way things are going
You might break my heart into two

So there we were
In innocence
So very unsure
Of future events

So what can I say?
You've told me the way it's to be
And I am still dealing
With the feelings that are inside of me

But I won't let you down
I'll still be around if you please
And maybe someday
If things go my way you will be
You'll be with me

'Cause there's nothing I'd rather
Be than together with you
And there's nothing I'd rather
Have than forever with you

But all of my dreams
And everything fades into blue
And the way things are going
You might break my heart into two
And the way things are going
You might break my heart into two
Track Name: Hope Unlooked For
[Instrumental]
Track Name: Summer Days
I remember
Walking on the beaches
And you whispered
Things I'd never heard

And I remember
Talking of the future
Back when love
Was more than just a word

And all the summer days we played
And all the summer nights we stayed up late
To communicate
And life was great

But now it's much too late

I remember
The laughter and the feeling
When I held you
Held you in my arms

Sometimes I wonder
Do you still remember
All the feelings
Or are you moving on?

And all the summer days we played
And all the summer nights we stayed up late
To communicate
And life was great

But now it's much too late

I guess with time the memory fades
I can't remember every phrase
But I still remember summer days

I remember
When I first read the letter
That told me
Just why you had to go

And come September
You told me that you'd know
You told me that you'd know

Now it's Novemeber
And I wonder what has happened
As I sit here and I watch the falling snow

Do you remember
The good times and the laughter
From the summer
So many months ago?

And all the summer days we played
And all the summer nights we stayed up late
To communicate
And life was great

But now it's much too late

Come on, come on, come on, come on
Come on, Come on now
Come on, come on, come on, come on
Let me in
Track Name: Life Is O.K.
So yeah, life is o.k.
Yet it's not all I hoped that would be
Close my eyes at the end of the day
For some reason you're still not here with me

And yeah, life is o.k.
But life could be so much better
There;s so much that I wanted to say
I've been meaning to tell you forever

That I'm hoping that you'll
Let me hold your hand
Thinking that maybe
You'll understand
I don't know why it's taken so long
But I don't wanna wait anymore for your love

So yeah, life is o.k.
And I promise you've nothing to fear now
The storm will not wash you away
And the sunshine will dry all your tears now

And yeah, life is o.k.
I'm trying each day just to live it
But I can't help but think of the way
It could be now if you were still in it

And I'm hoping that you'll
Let me hold your hand
Thinking that maybe
You'll understand
I don't know why I waited so long
But I don't wanna wait anymore for your love

Hoping that you'll
Let me hold your hand
Thinking that maybe
You'll understand
I don't know why it's taken so long
But I don't wanna wait anymore for your love
I don't wanna wait anymore for your love
Track Name: So Proud
What happened to our love?
Why did it go away?
Was it your fault or mine?
Who's to say?

I've taken the blame
And I've put the blame on you
The results were the same
My heart is torn in two

You wanted to love
You gave it a try
But we ended up saying our goodbyes
And if you knew then
All the things that you know now
Then maybe you wouldn't have been so proud

The hours become days
And weeks turn into years
I've changed in many ways
And I've overcome my fear

Your faults have all been shown
And I'm still discovering mine
How could we have ever known
With just so little time?

I wanted to love
I gave it a try
But we ended up saying our goodbyes
And if I knew then
All the things that I know now
Then maybe I wouldn't have been so proud

So proud
So proud
So proud
So

So now it comes to this
And I wanna try again
And I realize what we've missed
And all the things that might have been

They say time erases pain
And the days have made it true
Can we still erase this stain
And turn it into something new

We wanted to love
We gave it a try
But we ended up saying our goodbyes
And if we knew then
All the things that we know now
Then maybe we wouldn't have been so proud

So if we take what we've learned
And if we give it a try
Then maybe we'll never say goodbye
Then all of our dreams
Will be coming true now
As if we had never been so proud
Track Name: Sleep Well
[Instrumental]
Track Name: I Did All That I Could
Hello old friend, it's been a while
Since I have talked with you
I still recall when the days were long
And we shared something true
Under waterfalls and moonlight
As I held you oh so tight
But the stars that we wished upon
Must have fallen from the sky

And you never meant to break my heart
I know you never would
So I try to take some comfort knowing
I did all that I could

It seems like one day you were there
And the next day you were gone
You never did explain just why
You left me all alone
I see you and I realize
That nothing's really changed
I still recall the sadness
And I still can feel the pain

But you never meant to break my heart
I know you never would
So I try to take some comfort knowing
I did all that I could

You never meant to break my heart
I know you never would
So I try to take some comfort knowing
I did all that I could

I try to take some comfort knowing
I did all that I could
