about

9/25 ~ Twist and turn and spiral. I think in the future if anyone asks what kind of music I play I’ll tell them I play romantic jangle pop. I’m happy to write love songs. Especially bouncy ones. Opening video shot I see? An album on a turntable .. “round and round and round ..” I swear this stuff keeps me up at night. This one got kicked off of the "parade" album. It didn't stay on the playlist very long. I began writing it in Vancouver and finished it here. Transitional. If I don’t finish a song right away it languishes. Binders full .. demos galore. It's tough to decide what to do with the castaways at times. Curios or Vault? This one’s hanging on for dear life hoping to snag one of the life vests. Oh yes. Ten little life vests. Oops, nine. Kizza Me Now’s on board for the voyage. You don’t get to work on your tan if you’re sent to the “Curios” collection. And that’s the last stop .. you are not golden, my girl .. to quote a line from another song somewhere. Here she sits .. it’s Kizza or Curios .. (new breakfast cereal?) Meanwhile on the promenade deck .. xoRJ

lyrics

(Round and round and round)

Don't ever want to be without you
Or ever have to do without you
There's nothing going on without you 'round

I never wanna wake without you
Redo those crazy dreams about you
Stars come crashing down without you 'round

Without you 'round - down I go
Twist and turn and spiral ..
Without you 'round - down I go
Twist and turn and spiral
Without you 'round .. around .. around

I always want to see you happy
Do my best to keep you that way
Bad days are a frown without you 'round

Aw let me have a room in your heart
You got a knack for making fun start
Stars come crashing down without you 'round

Without you 'round - down I go
Twist and turn and spiral ..
Without you 'round - down I go
Twist and turn and spiral
Without you 'round .. around
Without you 'round .. ya yeah - yeah

Without you 'round - down I go
Twist and turn and spiral ..
Without you 'round - down I go
Twist and turn and spiral
Without you 'round - down I go
Twist and turn and spiral ..
Without you 'round - down I go
Twist and turn and spiral

Without you 'round .. around
Without you 'round .. yeah
Without you 'round
Without you ..

(Round and round and round)

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
