about

13/25 ~ Off to fly my rocketship. This was as far as I wanted to go with this one. I'll really have to revisit and give it a proper and objective listen. I get the nagging hunch I should hand this one over to Jett and the boys in Meet The Blacks. Oh I’m sure someone will let me know. But shit, I love this one. One of those five minutes songs you write while frying an egg. Well, okay .. almost .. but something's missing. Still a ton of work to do on this if. Distractions can prove costly. Case in point. I wrote another song while I was working on a keyboard part I didn't end up using. Not sure which song came up next but it came fast. It hit hard and it’s on here somewhere. What will the muse and the Universe throw at me next. So I sigh .. notebook and pen at my bedside .. this stuff keeps me up at night. If you don’t end up choosing this one I’m sure it’ll end up in a story .. a Meet The Blacks story. More stories than songs so I’m sure Jett will be happy to sing this one. Damn the torpedos, full speed ahead. Off to fly my rocketship to your heart .. xoRJ

lyrics

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

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
