about

Yesterday, July 11th, Gliding was leading the charge on Turn (Works In Progress) as August's flavour of the month. Bye. Turns out (pardon the pun) "Gliding" is our newest single release. The cornerstone for the upcoming sixth full-length release. I have to. I'm just writing an incredible amount these days. Gliding took about five minutes to write and I'm always sceptical when the muse gives me something that quickly. Something like .. here's five minutes, write a song. So be it. I'm having a lot of fun these days .. perfect gliding weather ... hugs across the night sky .. xoRJ

lyrics

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

We didn't get to test drive "Friday Night" the way we wanted to. Mr./Ms. Universe stepped in. Our seventh full-length release "Piece Of Your Ghost" becomes available on June 18th, 2021. I'll see what I can do about a single release or two. September sounds good. Summer's coming! Time to kick a few ghosts around ... Something in mind ... hmmm ... xoRJ ... more
