about

The only song I salvaged from the Mushroom Studio sessions. I wasn't ready for this. At all. We lost our musical director mid-stream. We lost our producer shortly after. Big talk, small dreams. Working 14-hour days at two jobs to cover studio expenses. Dead tired at the studio. Made it through and learned a valuable lesson. Lessons I carry with me. Notions about recording. I'm so where I want to be right now. I have my own studio and I grow more patient as I discover new skills and ideas. Such a learning curve. And guess what? I have the patience for it. My favourite version of this one is the performance video captured for "Night Moves Presents". Two rehearsals before the filming. Magic. The session itself was a complete blast .. we'll post it for you if you behave ... xoRJ

lyrics

I live with an insomniac
Somewhere inside my head
At midnight when the lights go out
He just won’t go to bed

Is it mental or physical (physical)
Emotional or something more
These dreams they are not tame
Not tame at all

Got no life of my own
He bends and shapes my day
Big black circles under my eyes
Seems they’re here to stay

Is it mental or physical (physical)
Emotional or something more
These dreams they are not tame
Not tame at all

I can’t live like that
Somebody else’s dream
I can’t sleep at night
Somebody else’s dream

I ain’t got no life of my own
He bends and shapes my day
Big black circles under my eyes
It seems they’re here to stay

Is it mental or physical (physical)
Emotional or something more
These dreams they are not tame
Not tame at all

I can’t live like that
Somebody else’s dream
I can’t sleep at night
Somebody else’s dream

I can’t live like that
Somebody else’s dream
I can’t sleep at night
Somebody else’s - dream

I can’t live like that
Somebody else’s dream
I can’t sleep at night
Somebody else’s dream

I can’t live like that
Somebody else’s dream -

Robert James Wetaskiwin, Alberta

We didn't get to test drive "Friday Night" the way we wanted to. Mr./Ms. Universe stepped in. 2020's Covid Cutie. "Sweet Tooth" is currently home to at least six tracks that will appear on our upcoming seventh release entitled "Piece Of Your Ghost". I'm currently close to release of two new singles for our "Or In Cyprus" collection. Just one release to date. Lonely soul ... needs pals. xoRJ ... more
