about

The singles Collection from our catalogue. A nice little bundle for you to scope through. They're all here. And in chronological order, no less. Everything we've ever released as Robert James. And due to publishing and copyright legalities, part of the vault must remain closed. You may not recognize "Sending My Heart (Live)" as being a single as it was released as the B/flip side to "Santa's On His Way" and thus was in all intents and purposes, a hidden track. I've corrected that here and I've given the song it's own page to finally breath some life into it. As the collection grows, hopefully and god willing, we will add additional volumes. Look at you .. you've got a head start. In fact, you're gliding .. love to all xoRJ

Track Name: Gliding (Single Edit) 2018
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: Opium Train (Trail Mix) 2018
Even through sandstorms
We followed the lights
Burning and weaving their way through midnight

And all of the fifty horsemen
That ride with the train
Each of them wishing that it would rain

As the sun climbed higher our throats were fire
The reins burned hot in my hands
The train would snake - find it's way
To waterholes not on the map
We'd conspire by the speck of a fire
Go over it again and again ..
I would die in the sand or have silver and gold for my Jane
Robbing the Opium train - robbing the Opium train ..

The horsemen, they drop like flies
In this sweltering heat -
All of the rest will be slaughtered like sheep

Tonight while they make their camp
Is when we attack
Think of my Jane - no more rehearsing .. no more turning back

As the sun climbed higher our throats were fire
The reins burned hot in my hands
The train would snake - find it's way
To waterholes not on the map
We'd conspire by the speck of a fire
Go over it again and again ..
I would die in the sand or have silver and gold for my Jane
Robbing the Opium train - robbing the Opium train ..

Close my eyes .. mmm .. see my Jane
Going down .. robbing the Opium train
Say a prayer - aw lord, keep me safe
Glory bound .. robbing the Opium train

Robbing the Opium train .. robbing the Opium train
Robbing the Opium train .. Opium train
Track Name: Tick After Tock (Dance Mix) 2018
Tick tock - tick tock
Tick tock - tick tock

So cool .. so caramel
My favourite glue ..
Sirens in my closet
You're the mess I'm sticky to ..
My kind .. hey, trouble
The crow at my door
In distress, a fabumess
Femme fatale I can't ignore

You make the time for me
You never get me wrong
I never make believe I'll stay away too long

Tick after tock .. I won't miss a beat
Tick after tock .. you can count on me
Baby I owe you and if eternal's what you want
I am tick - after tick - after tock

Tick tock - tick tock

So rock .. so candy
Mackintosh toffee to go
Building cars to drive on Mars
More than afterglow ..
Be tart, out orange me
Be why they took Tang to the Moon
Luna rocks your Terry socks .. static cling was made for you ..

You make the time for me
You never get me wrong
I never make believe
I'll stay away too long

Tick after tock .. I won't miss a beat
Tick after tock .. you can count on me
Baby I owe you and if eternal's what you want
I am tick - after tick - after tock

Tick after tock .. I won't miss a beat
Tick after tock .. you can count on me
Baby I owe you and if eternal's what you want
I am tick -after tick - after -
Tick after tock .. I won't miss a beat
Tick after tock .. you can count on me
Baby I owe you and if eternal's what you want
I am tick -after tick - after tock

A - E - I - O - U and sometimes why?
'Cause you are hot
I am tick - after tick - after tock
Track Name: No Reason 2017
No reason for leaving you
Just say he's gone again
No list of things to do
And no reason for leaving you

The whispering winter wind
Snowman is on his way
I'm off to somewhere new
With no reason for leaving you

I can't understand it
My eyes are too blind to see
How can I hurt you
When you've been so kind to me, yeah -

Gone are those crazy days
Rain's taken summer's place
I feel so sad and blue
With no reason for leaving you

This song offers not one clue
And no reason for leaving you ... yeah -
Track Name: Piece Of Me 2013
When did I start stop making sense
I only turned, now I wonder where my mind went
When do I stop calling your name
I only smiled, now I’m shame-faced and heartless


You’ll always want it all but settle for a piece of me
Call it what you want to call it
You still have a piece of me
A piece of me, yeah


When will I stop hurting myself
I only blink and it hits me like a freight train
When did you stop turning it on
You flipped a switch or maybe just a time zone


You’ll always want it all but settle for a piece of me
Call it what you want to call it
You still have a piece of me
A piece of me, yeah

A little piece of me .... a little piece of me
That's what you want ...

You’ll always want it all but settle for a piece of me
Call it what you want to call it
You still have a piece of me
A piece of me, yeah
Track Name: Ballad Of Cora Grey 2010
Oh - her name is Cora Grey
And her folks live over yonder
I've walked her home from school every day since I was ten
Every time I see her mother
I ask after Cora -
Is there any news of my friend ..

She left one sunny day
To live with friends in Ireland
We traded our good-byes as the train came 'round the bend
Many nights I've pined
Thinking of my Cora
Waiting on some news from my friend ..

We'd walk from here to the end of the pier
And watch the tide go out
And ever since the age of ten she's all I've thought about

When I saw her mom today
She kissed me on the cheek and said
"Today Cora Grey's coming home .."

Now I'm rushing home from work
To find my fanciest attire
I plan to go a'callin' on a lady friend I know
She'll be waiting at the station
'Cause the folks are all at my house
Today Cora Grey's coming home ..

We'd walk from here to the end of the pier
And watch the tide go out
And ever since the age of ten she's all I've thought about

When I saw her mom today
She kissed me on the cheek and said
"Today Cora Grey's coming home .."

We'd walk from here to the end of the pier
And watch the tide go out
And ever since the age of ten she's all I've thought about

When I saw her mom today
She kissed me on the cheek and said
"Today Cora Grey's coming home .."

Ah .. today Cora Grey's coming home ..
Yes .. today Cora Grey's coming home ..
Aaah ...
Track Name: Santa's On His Way 2008
If you're blue and all alone
Just pick up your telephone
And Santa - Santa's on his way

If your tree won't stand up straight
Don't you worry - just you wait
Hey, Santa - Santa's on his way

Well, he - ain't got no reindeer
Or no big black shiny car
And his long dark hair is starting to turn grey

It's a cold old winter's night
You need someone to treat you right
Well, Santa - Santa's on his way ..

Hanging up your mistletoe
Yuletide logs are all a'glow
And Santa - Santa's on his way

Close the window, trim the lights
You won't be alone tonight
'Cause Santa - Santa's on his way

Well, he - ain't got no reindeer
Or no big black shiny car
And his long dark hair is starting to turn grey

It's a cold old winter's night
You need someone to treat you right
Well, Santa - Santa's on his way ..

Well, he - ain't got no reindeer
Or no big black shiny car
And his long dark hair is starting to turn grey

If there's someone you would like to see
Underneath your Christmas tree
Well, Santa - Santa's on his way ..

Hey, Santa - Santa's on his way ..
Track Name: Sending My Heart (Live) 2008
Da da da da da ta ta ta tum

Snow’s on the ground and old man winter’s ..
Just - spreading his blanket over my head
You’re out there .. oh so sad and blue
Shall I - send my heart out to you ..

It’s nice to know you’re still writing
I used to be - head over heels in love with you
You’re falling apart .. what’s a girl to do
Shall I - send my heart out to you ..

Any old way you want it
I’ll send it by bus or mail
Any old way you want it
I’ll send it by plane or rail

It don’t matter which way - it’ll get through
If I - send my heart out to you

Da da da da da ta ta ta tum

Courting a storm without a shelter
I was - closest to cold I ever knew
You put my heart in a jar .. the jar it broke in two
Shall I - send my heart out to you

Any old way you want it
I’ll send it by bus or mail
Any old way you want it
I’ll send it by plane or rail

It don’t matter which way - it’ll get through
If I send my heart out to you

Da da da da da ta ta ta tum

Sending my heart out to you ..
Sending my heart out to you ..
Sending my heart out to you ..

Yes, I’m - sending my heart out to you
