about

An ill-fated follow-up to the "Beth" CD. I had the best of intentions. Just ended up with three songs for "Thursday's Child". Everything just blew up so fast. House fire with everything I owned in quarantine for a year by the insurance company, government audit on my business, band break-up, death of my manager and then my father, 100 grand to fix a leaky condo .. yes, everything was falling apart. The park across the street from my home was good therapy. I'd go there after work and just strum and sing. Breezy moments in an otherwise bad stretch. So, three songs presented here for you. Curios indeed .. and Thursday's child? Well, he's right here .. xoRJ

lyrics

This morning was rushed ..
A little blessed but uninspired
I drown out when it hurts too much
But I finally realized -

I didn’t know a thing ’til I met you
I didn’t know a thing ’til I met you

Oh - and you’re out there ..
Building bridges I may burn
In all the years I’ve played with fire
There is one thing I have learned

I didn’t know a thing ’til I met you
I didn’t know a thing ’til I met you

Didn’t know what time it was
Didn’t know what day it was
Didn’t know what year it was
Or how I managed until now ..

This morning was rough
Another topsy turvy day -
If I have to spell it out for you
There is one thing I must say

I didn’t know a thing ’til I met you
I didn’t know a thing ’til I met you
I didn’t know a thing ’til I met you
I didn’t know a thing ’til I met you

I didn’t know a thing -
I didn’t know a thing -
’Til I met you ..
I didn’t know a thing

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
