about

11/25 ~ I used to say I’d never stalk my prey .. The skeleton of this song was mapped out in Vancouver and sat on the back burner until the big move was completed and the studio set up. Finally. All fired up. And two beautiful white guitars that had never been on tape. Recording was sporadic at first so I’ll say it really commenced in September of '17. Full-tilt. Strangled was slated for lead-off track on that “Parade” album but lost out to “Tick After Tock” and then was eventually shelved. I spotted it in the water and we’ve rescued it .. for the time being. You’ll be making the cuts from here on in. This one will be a whole lotta fun with a band. Trading solos. This was got close to being completed but once I wrote “Tick” I knew it had to go. And I couldn’t see it anywhere other than lead-off. I’ll have to finish it anyway I suppose. The video for this one is among the other "parade" videos and will be moved to a new playlist soon. This was also the first song recorded here at the ranch so it deserves a second look. Put her back under the microscope .. have a peek .. xoRJ

lyrics

I used to say I'd live a quiet life
But baby, that's not where you are
I used to say I'd never stay out late
Until I hitched on to your star

I wanna lay your body down
Taste your little pain ..

I used to say I had a single dream
But the ones you have are real
I used to save mine for a rainy day
All hands, all touch .. no feel

I wanna lay your body down
Taste your little pain
Take you to that little room
And make you shout my name ..

Until I'm strangled .. by my love
Yes I'm strangled .. by my love
Oh I'm strangled .. by my love
My love for you ..

I used to say I'd always keep in touch
Now you're the only one I call
I used to say I'd never stalk my prey
But now your picture's on my wall

I wanna lay your body down
Taste your little pain
Take you to that little room
And make you shout my name

'Til I'm strangled .. by my love
Yes I'm strangled .. by my love
Oh yeah I'm strangled .. by my love
My love for you (my love for you)

I wanna lay your body down
Taste your little pain
Take you to that little room
And make you shout my name

'Til I'm strangled .. by my love
Yes I'm strangled .. by my love
Oh I'm strangled .. by my love
Yes I'm strangled .. by my love

Yes I'm strangled .. strangled .. strangled
strangled .. strangled .. strangled

(My love for you)

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
