about

22/25 ~ Might have to .. polish up my lines. As far as the progress on this song is concerned that’s a definite yes. Oh I’m going along at a good clip. Would have posted this sooner but I’ve had a new song to contend with. But that’s your 23 of 25. That’s next. But I’m cutting it close. So this is all I have for you for now. Tons of parts to add. Redo the solo, trade off with keys. More backing vocals. Acoustic guitar. The list goes on. And as always clean-up aisle three. Almost reminds me of the first time I set foot into a cabaret. Not the faces you’re used to. You’re not in high school anymore, Dorothy. You’re nervous enough. Add the flashing lights, loud band and look out .. shaking like a leaf inside. That’s me at every gig I play. Those first few seconds on stage. Those butterflies that turn into Pterodactyls .. Love that shit. Wouldn’t trade that feeling. Never want to lose it. And it’s only just those first three words to the opening song. Nail that and it’s smooth sailing. So yes, still a fair distance to go on this one. Why that’s almost like crossing that dance floor and finding out what that smile is all about .. and shaking like a leaf inside. And with every step it feels better .. xoRJ

lyrics

If I catch you staring again
With that “got to know you” look in your eye
Might have to - kiss this heart good-bye
And stroll on over

Send another whiskey my way
I might decide it’s my turn to buy
Might have to - cut through the line
And stroll on over

I’ll stroll on over
There’s something I been dyin’ to say
I’ll stroll on over
Smile again and I’ll stroll on over

I really do believe what they say
About diamonds just waiting to shine
Might have to - polish up my lines
And stroll on over

So if I catch you looking my way
With the “got to know you” look in your eye
Might have to - wave it all good-bye
And stroll on over

I’ll stroll on over
There’s something I been dyin’ to say
I’ll stroll on over
Smile again and I’ll stroll on over

I’ll stroll on over
There’s something I’m dyin’ to say
I’ll stroll on over
Smile again ..

If you think it’s fine - I’ll stroll on over
Just one more sign - I’ll stroll on over
If you’ve got the time .. tick-tock - stroll on over
We could make this shine, baby - stroll on over

Look out here I come
My mouth’s all dry
Shaking like a leaf inside ..

I’ll stroll on over
There’s something I’m dyin’ to say
I’ll stroll on over
There’s something I’m dyin’ to say
I’ll stroll on over
There’s something I been dyin’ to say
I’ll stroll on over .. look out, here I come ..

(Something I’m dyin’ to say ..)

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
