about

Piece Of Me wasn't really supposed to be a single. This is actually the demo version I never got around to finishing. The last song to be released in Vancouver. It was meant to appear on the fourth CD. Just part of the new album's prototype. The model version. The album didn't really take on it's own life until after I arrived here in June of 2018. The untimely death of my long-time manager and best friend, Malcolm Summersby, changed everything. Piece Of Me was Malcolm's favourite song (loved it so much he sang on the track) and I felt it was only fitting to release this song as a memorial in his honor. Although the song itself remains unmastered it was felt by all in the Robert James camp that "Uncle Mal" would have wanted this version posted. Perhaps the angels are playing it for him this very moment. So on behalf of Robert and the band, Angry Lion Publishing and The Kingsway Group this one is for you, Malcolm. Rest in Peace our brother in arms. ~ xoRJ

lyrics

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

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
