about

March 12.19 Time was when “Time Of Your Life” was conceived, it was in the middle of a Tarot session. Sure. Watch a Cappie (Sun) or Sage (Venus) quickie then head down a floor and burn through an all-night session. And oddly enough, two beautiful white guitars to keep me in tune with the night. I’ve had parts of this song kicking around. I steal from myself a lot. Funny in a sense that I let something languish and then end up bastardizing the whole thing. There’s a best-before date stamped on it somewhere. A snapshot? Perhaps. A bit of work to do on this one still. I hope you don’t mind that I write these little notes to myself. Our little secret. Okay. Chorus needs a second harmony on the call-outs. Treatment on the answerback? Ditch the Time bells on the intro. Clutters the guitar and horn figures. Castanets in the Bassy breakdown. Those weird shakers are out. It’s off to Mercury with you. See how your punk ass likes a retrograde. A horn flourish to butt up against the first guitar line in the solo. This shit really does keep me tossing and turning at night. And castanets. We need more castanets. Oh, and, but fuck, the Angels really love the triangles and bells. Go figure. So here we sit. And hey, having the time of our lives. Blesses to you. xoRJ

lyrics

Time, time, time - time, time, time

Tired old Monday .. drags you down
Week gets crazy .. takes it’s toll
I look at a frame, it’s missing a photo
I think of one I’d like to see -
One of you having the time of your life with me

I’d never get enough .. of you
Push those buttons - drive you crazy
I close my eyes .. take a snapshot
A picture I want you to see -
Here you are having the time of your life with me
That’s you here having the time of your life with me

Everything I want
Everything I need is in your arms
What you need to know
What you need to see is in my eyes

Ragged old heart .. trips me up
I don’t trust it - runs away
Here’s an idea I’m kicking around
Like having your scent on the breeze
And have you here having the time of your life with me
To have you here having the time of your life with me

Everything I want
Everything I need is in your arms
What you need to know
What you need to see is in my eyes

Yeah .. ooh, yeah .. time of your life
The time of your life .. c’mon, let’s go
Look at the snapshot ..
Oooh, look at the snapshot .. the time of your life ..

about

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
