about

Kizza Me Now .. When I call it the Lifeboat Edition I mean just that. There should be about 25 songs here before December closes out. I’m pretty sure you understand these are demo versions only. First take on most of the vocals and parts quickly thrown together. Spent most of the time on tempo and arrangements so those are set in stone. And I only need ten songs for upcoming number five. Something about a shortage of life jackets. Listen to this collection all day long when I'm not recording new songs for this upcoming release. Sing along, pick up the guitar, mesh out backing vocals, whatever. New ideas to jot down. And these songs piped through all four floors of the ranch. All day long. March 15th of 2019 is the target release date. It’ll happen. Has to. My horoscope says I’m getting married this summer. One of those June or July weddings. You may have heard of this .. they’re looking for her right now. So yeah .. "Kizza Me Now" will go worldwide on March 15th. I'll have to dust off those snakeskin shoes .. summer stages are already calling. If you do have a fave here that you’d like to see on the album send me a note. I’d love to hear from you. Please don’t make me pick these alone .. robert@robertjames.ca Talk soon Kitties ... xoRJ

Robert James Wetaskiwin, Alberta

Currently calling Wetaskiwin, Canada home, Robert has just released his 4th CD, "Satyr's Day Parade". Saturn's a bit of a taskmaster and the upcoming release "Kizza Me Now" is moving along at breakneck speed. The rough mixes are changing as he prepares the songs for a live setting. Although the upcoming release is a ten song affair, all the songs will get a make-over. Make-over .. mix-over. xoRJ ... more

Kizza me now -
C’mon baby .. kizza me now
Kizza me now -
C’mon baby .. kizza me now - ooh ..

Mystery surrounds you
Like a late night midnight creature feature
My Achilles heel ..
You’re just like popcorn to me

Breath mints in my pocket
Just in case you get some big ideas

Kizza me now -
C’mon baby .. kizza me now

Stow you in the back row
There’s an epic on the techni-big screen
Turn down the floodlights
I love it when they change the reels

If I grab you a soda
Can we be seventeen again
Candies, mints and pixie sticks
In case I think you’re up to something

Kizza me now -
C’mon baby .. kizza me now
Kizza me now -

I .. I have known .. you are golden, my girl
And I have been waiting for you
Oh I’ve seen .. I believe to my soul
Your magic will always come through

It’s all in the things that you do
Those little things that you do

Of all of the things that you do
Oh, I smile .. and I see in your eyes
That magic will always come through

Picture me a day .. I’ll make it that way
Paint me up a night .. I’ll make one you like

Track Name: Boo
Boo - Boo !
Boo - Boo !

I never seem to get past ‘B’
Thinking about ‘U’
Let’s get the whole thing started

Sending you an SOS
Whenever you can get to me
Send out your rescue party

Oh - you get me started
Tongue just gets all tied
Yes, you do - you get me started

(All the time ..)

Be your boo .. be your bae
Stick to love like goo
Be your boo .. make me bae
The things I'd do for you

Boo - Boo !
Boo - Boo !

Happy with a trick or treat
Whatever you hand out
At least there’s something waiting for me

Suit each other to a ’T’
You could pull the Queen of Spades on me
I laugh - pretend you’re sorry

Oh - you get me started
Tongue just gets all tied
Yes, you do - you get me started

(All the time ..)

Be your boo .. be your bae
Stick to love like glue
Be your boo .. make me bae

Track Name: Spend Your Love
Come to me in rags .. hair unbraided
Come to me in silks .. jewels around your neck
Here beside the hearth .. someone's waiting
Try spending nights like I do ..
Waiting for the day

I've got a hunch there's secret stashes
Little red heart banks hidden round the room
Visit now and then .. so much dust has gathered
You'll have to spend them soon
And I know just the place ..

Spend your love on me
I'm penniless, a pauper
I hear love sets you free
Spend your love on me
Oh baby .. I want to believe ..
Come and spend your love here

One little, two little, three little hearts
Spend 'em all on me
I'm standing on a ladder and hearts are hard to reach

Spend your love on me
I'm penniless, a pauper
I hear love sets you free
Spend your love on me
Oh baby .. I want to believe
Come and spend your love here

My door is always open .. come and spend your love
I'll always be at bargain prices .. come and spend your love
So many discount deals .. hmm .. come and spend your love
F-I-R-E fire sale .. come and spend your love

Spend your love on me
I'm penniless, a pauper
I hear love sets you free
Spend your love on me
Oh baby .. I want to believe
Come and spend your love here

Spend your love on me
Spend your love on me
Spend your love on me .. why don't you
Spend your love on me .. on me
Track Name: Gliding
Yay yeah - I'm gliding ..

The universe is a big one .. I'm feeling right at home
Chatting up a storm with every ghost I've ever known ..
They drag those chains behind me
But they can't slow me down
'Cause I am gliding .. yay yeah .. yes I'm gliding ..
(Look at us)

Yay yeah .. I'm gliding ..

Welcome to the big one - you're in it on your own
No sugar coating here .. you'll have to stand alone
I know you can make it through - oh you were made for this
You'll soon be gliding ..
Yay yeah - yeah you're gliding

Never wanted to learn to hurt
Sent the sadness away
Lantern, lantern .. burn me bright
Like a comet 'cross the night sky

Ooh - you're gliding ..
Ooh - oh yeah you're gliding ..
You're gliding - you - are - gliding ..

Welcome to the righteous age - don't walk through that door
We have to find ourselves before they chain us to the floor
Once we hit the open road .. no need to speed at all
'Cause we'll be gliding -
Yay yeah .. oh yeah we're gliding

Never wanted to learn to hurt
Sent the sadness away
Lantern, lantern burn me bright
Like a comet 'cross the night sky

Look at us - (looking good) - Oh we're gliding
Look at us .. we are gliding

We're gliding - we - are - gliding
Oh we're gliding - yes we're gliding
Oh we're .. gliding ..

Yay yeah
Track Name: Indigo Heart (Hangman's Noose)
Indigo heart
Sky is a blue .. almost black
Something I lost in the light
Is haunting me now in the night
Indigo heart
Witness the dread and despair
Evil I see in myself
Show it to nobody else

I’ll cry at sunrise .. light coming over the hill
I’ll miss your bright eyes
I’ve got my whole life to kill ..

Indigo heart - can’t kill your indigo heart

Indigo heart
Castle walls crumble and fall
Give you my heart and my soul
Just take them both when you go
Indigo heart
I know you’re trying your best
Something gets left in the rain
Torrent will wash it away

I’ll cry at sunrise .. light coming over the hill
I’ll miss your bright eyes
And I’ve got my whole life to kill ..

Indigo heart - can’t kill your indigo heart

Indigo heart
Sky is a black .. almost blue
It’s just a trick of the soul
Holding and not letting go
Indigo heart
All of the time that we have
Love that I see in myself
For you and for nobody else

I’ll die at sunrise .. light coming over the hill
Just take your sweet time
I’ve got my whole life to kill
It’s almost sunrise .. a ribbon of light on the hill
The hangman’s waiting
And I have my whole life to kill ..

Indigo heart .. they can’t kill your indigo heart
Track Name: Without You 'Round
(Round and round and round)

Don't ever want to be without you
Or ever have to do without you
There's nothing going on without you 'round

I never wanna wake without you
Redo those crazy dreams about you
Stars come crashing down without you 'round

Without you 'round - down I go
Twist and turn and spiral ..
Without you 'round - down I go
Twist and turn and spiral
Without you 'round .. around .. around

I always want to see you happy
Do my best to keep you that way
Bad days are a frown without you 'round

Aw let me have a room in your heart
You got a knack for making fun start
Stars come crashing down without you 'round

Without you 'round - down I go
Twist and turn and spiral ..
Without you 'round - down I go
Twist and turn and spiral
Without you 'round .. around
Without you 'round .. ya yeah - yeah

Without you 'round - down I go
Twist and turn and spiral ..
Without you 'round - down I go
Twist and turn and spiral
Without you 'round - down I go
Twist and turn and spiral ..
Without you 'round - down I go
Twist and turn and spiral

Without you 'round .. around
Without you 'round .. yeah
Without you 'round
Without you ..

(Round and round and round)
Track Name: Land's End
Sunrise for my ocean
You're what I've been needing
Barge right in and blast me .. heat and sound

Beat my heart electric
And you are all you seem
Someone slipped your face into my dream

Watch the time .. tide is rushing in
Bang your drum .. let the fun begin
I have tried to look away
But you were always my focus
Land's end - sunrise for my ocean

Sunrise for my ocean
I've discovered meaning
Given up for lost but now I'm found

Solar face - electric
And baby's skin is coo-o-o-o-l
Just maybe I'm the ocean for your view

Watch the time .. tide is rushing in
Bang your drum .. let the fun begin
I have tried to stay away
But you were always my focus
Land's end - sunrise for my ocean

Watch the time .. tide is rushing in
Bang your drum .. let the fun begin
I have waited long enough
And you were always my potion
Land's end - sunrise for my ocean

Land's end - sunrise for my ocean
Track Name: Strangled
I used to say I'd live a quiet life
But baby, that's not where you are
I used to say I'd never stay out late
Until I hitched on to your star

I wanna lay your body down
Taste your little pain ..

I used to say I had a single dream
But the ones you have are real
I used to save mine for a rainy day
All hands, all touch .. no feel

I wanna lay your body down
Taste your little pain
Take you to that little room
And make you shout my name ..

Until I'm strangled .. by my love
Yes I'm strangled .. by my love
Oh I'm strangled .. by my love
My love for you ..

I used to say I'd always keep in touch
Now you're the only one I call
I used to say I'd never stalk my prey
But now your picture's on my wall

I wanna lay your body down
Taste your little pain
Take you to that little room
And make you shout my name

'Til I'm strangled .. by my love
Yes I'm strangled .. by my love
Oh yeah I'm strangled .. by my love
My love for you (my love for you)

I wanna lay your body down
Taste your little pain
Take you to that little room
And make you shout my name

'Til I'm strangled .. by my love
Yes I'm strangled .. by my love
Oh I'm strangled .. by my love
Yes I'm strangled .. by my love

Yes I'm strangled .. strangled .. strangled
strangled .. strangled .. strangled

(My love for you)
Track Name: Expecting Rain
It's blazing hot, crazy sunny outside
The boys are into the grain
But I'm expecting rain -

Weatherman says the lord’s on his side
So he’s predicting more of the same
But I’m expecting rain -

Been a dog’s long life since I heard from the girl
Hoping nothing has changed
But my letters go unanswered
I’m expecting rain -

Postman bops by shaking his head
Says there’s nothing today
But I’m expecting rain

Said she’d write a letter in Mexico City
Then mail it when she got into Spain
But I’m expecting rain

Been a dog’s long life since I heard from the girl
Hoping nothing has changed
But my letters go unanswered
I’m expecting rain -
I’m expecting rain -

Hey hey - yeah

I remember that look through the steam on the glass
As you took to your seat on the train
I remember those words on the back of a photo
As you pressed it tight to the pane

Been a dog’s long life since I heard from the girl
Hoping nothing has changed
But my letters go unanswered
I’m expecting rain -
My letters go unanswered
My letters go unanswered

I’m expecting rain -
Track Name: Rocketship
Another night - I can’t sleep
Not getting any further with you in my dreams
So I’m gonna fly my rocketship to your heart

Wanna write - I wanna call
I’m stuck here behind a grade ‘A’ wall
So I’m gonna fly my rocketship to your heart

I’ll fly my rocketship
Park next to your heart
I’ll walk right in and claim it mine

Checked the stars - lunar tides
All systems go tonight
So I’m gonna fly my rocketship to your heart

Losin’ ground - losing time
But giving up ain’t on my mind
So I’m gonna fly my rocketship to your heart

Gauges up - thrusters on
Count from ten and then I’m gone
Off to fly my rocketship to your heart

I’ll fly my rocketship
Park next to your heart
I’ll walk right in and claim it mine

Another night - I can’t sleep
Not getting any further with you in my dreams
I’m gonna fly my rocketship to your heart

I’m gonna fly my rocketship
I’m gonna fly my rocketship to your heart
Track Name: Rings
Rings .. (a whole bunch of 'em)

You don't see much here now do you
Are you moving along - moving along
There's not much chance for a maybe
But maybe you're wrong .. just maybe ..

Of all the things I wanted
I'd still be your fool
I'd make the sun rise and die in your eyes
Say it matters to you

Tonight the stars just aren't bright enough
Come over here let me light you up
It's all eclipsing - waiting on you
Think of me when you see rings around the moon

Rings ..

Nothing to fear here with my heart
It's your open door .. ah yeah, ah yeah
Keep it around if you need it
That's what it's for .. ah yeah

Of all the things I wanted
I'd still be your fool
I'd make the sun rise and die in your eyes
Say it matters to you

Tonight the stars just aren't bright enough
Come over here let me light you up
It's all eclipsing - waiting on you
Think of me when you see rings around the moon

Tonight the stars just aren't bright enough - oh no
Come over here let me light you up
It's all eclipsing - waiting on you
Think of me when you see rings around the moon

Rings ..
Track Name: Riverside Rockroll Revival
One little, two little mickeys of Gin
Tucked in my boots and I’m sneakin’ ‘em in
My friend Julie .. her boyfriend Jack
Invited me down past the railroad tracks
Goin’ to a riverside rockroll revival tonight

Stan .. he got a snare, a kick and a hat
A nasty ol’ demeanour he got from his dad
Stevie got a bass he bought at a pawn
And a second-hand amp from a neighbour named John
Goin’ to a riverside rockroll revival tonight

Well, the rockroll tunes are fast and tight
Down by the riverside
Gonna shake, gonna rattle .. roll all night
Down by the riverside
Goin’ to a riverside rockroll revival tonight

Smooth talker, fast girl - a Bordeaux Queen
She’s got a couple girlfriends she’s bringing along
A little razzle dazzle and the beat goes on

Tonight’s my night to howl
I’ll be somewhere on 49th Street, yeah yeah

49th Street - looking for crazy kicks
I missed .. when I was a kid
Those crazy kicks - ooh .. crazy kicks

Got a bottle of Tennessee Rye
And if that ain’t enough

When the bars are all closed down
The alley’s all the shelter I’ll need
Wait for the darker life on 49th Street .. yeah

Track Name: Torch-up
(Little Texas) - Torch-up job
(Little Texas) - Torch-up job
(Little Texas) - Torch-up
(Little Tejas)

Spent a crazy night down in Houston
Stranded at the Lone Star Hotel
A little dive out on I-25 and that's where the action is
Saw her in the doorway
Cool, long-legged and blonde
Someone kicked the jukebox ..
And "Your Cheatin' Heart" came on
Yeah yeah ..
She sat down on a barstool
And asked if I'd been waiting here long
I looked right at an angel
Cowgirl hat and denim
A little Texas torch-up job

(Little Texas) - Torch-up job
(Little Texas) - Torch-up job
(Little Texas) - Torch-up
(Little Tejas)

Started up a conversation
Told her I was passing through
A Canadian man in a Canadian band
Visiting the Red, White & Blue
Then a cowboy with an Arkansas toothpick
Staggered up and called her a whore
I had to show that big ol' boy
What a big ol' fist was for
I drew a crowd when I put him down
So I backed my way to the door
As I was walking down the highway
Who pulled up beside me
But the little Texas torch-up job

(Little Texas) - Torch-up job
(Little Texas) - Torch-up job
(Little Texas) - Torch-up

She was so much sleeker
Than the black Corvette she drove
Pedal to the metal -
Highway Queenie loves to roll ...

Spent a crazy night down in Houston
Stranded at the Lone Star Hotel
A little dive out on I-25 and that's where the action is
Saw her in the doorway
Cool, long-legged and blonde
Someone kicked the jukebox
And "Your Cheatin' Heart" came on
Yeah yeah ..
She sat down on a barstool
And asked if I'd been waiting here long
I looked right at an angel
Cowgirl hat and denim
A little Texas torch-up job

She really was an angel
Love her like the devil
My little Texas torch-up job
Little Texas ... T4Texas ..
Track Name: Bethlehem PA
Here I am in Bethlehem
Looking for your street
In a ’60 Ford I found along the way

When night hits Alabama
Some woman’s gonna freak -
Ford ain’t where she left it yesterday

You said if I got lonely
It was best to come on by
After twenty years or more
What’s a few more miles ..

I’m driving aimlessly through Bethlehem PA
Looking for an address that was postmarked ’98
I’ve got to see the girl but I can’t stay
They know me well here ..

Might be time to change my ride
Find a small sedan
I don’t recognize the street I’m on

When dawn hits ol’ Savannah
Somebody will come home
To a ransacked house and all their money gone

But, yeah - you said if I got lonely
It was best to come on by
I just came back to say hello
Before I say good-bye

I’m driving aimlessly through Bethlehem PA
Looking for an address that was postmarked ’98
I’ve got to see the girl but I can’t stay
They know me well here
Oh they know me well
Yes they know me well in Bethlehem PA

They know me well
Ah, they know me well here
They know me well in Bethlehem PA

They know me well here
They really know me well here
They know me well in Bethlehem PA ..
Track Name: Big Stone House (Anna)
When they hear the iron bell
The workers in the field
Know it's time to meet at the big stone house
You can hear it peal
Rings across the hills
Time to find your seat at the big stone house

A table made of oak
Probably polished in the sunlight
By hands that enjoyed a job well done
Silver dishes shine
Bread is freshly baked
No one's turned away at the big stone house

Oh the day's been very hot
So they're slow comin' in
Still they make their way to the big stone house
They feel the cooling water
Fever goes away
Another perfect day at the big stone house

A table made of oak
Probably polished in the sunlight
By hands that enjoyed a job well done
Silver dishes shine
Bread is freshly baked
No one's turned away at the big stone house

All the birds and beasts know
When it's time to meet
Someone rings the bell at the big stone house
When you hear it chime
You'll want to go and see
Hear the joy and mirth at the big stone house

A table made of oak
Probably polished in the sunlight
By hands that enjoyed a job well done
Silver dishes shine
Bread is freshly baked
No one's turned away at the big stone house

When they hear the iron bell
The workers in the field
Know it's time to meet at the big stone house
You can hear it peal
Rings across the hills
Time to find your seat at the big stone house
Time to find your seat at the big stone house

No one's turned away at the big stone house
