We'll Always Be There (Acoustic)

We'll Always Be There (Acoustic)

A taster of upcoming Arts Council-funded debut EP 'Fly' out later this year and currently being recorded at Airtight Studios, Manchester, this song was written for and about my Dad. The vocals and guitar were recorded one night while travelling for work, far away from home while thinking about family, the past, and how for some people just getting up in the morning is an act of daily heroism. While a new version is being developed for the EP, this one features the original vocal and guitar from the day the song was written.

 

This track will be released on all platforms on 25th June 2021

 

Voices from the past beat down the waving blades of grass and end our summer time,
Smashing plates and glass and questions trapped inside unasked invade your other time.

A loss of home and warmth, loss of centre and form turn over tables
So every step you took was ever harder than it looked but still you're able
To give and not to count the cost, to overcome the human loss, don't let the win die down in your sails
To give and not to count the cost, to overcome the human loss, don't let the wind die down in your sails
And remember - we'll always be there.

Words said by those who didn't think have sometimes bought you to the brink and swirled around just out of sight
Left alone and lost in thought a ghost hung up upon the door waits in your childhood night
A loss of home and warmth, loss of centre and form turn over tables
So every step you took was ever harder than it looked but still you're able
To give and not to count the cost, to overcome the human loss, don't let the wind die down in your sails
To give and not to count the cost, to overcome the human loss, don't let the win die down in your sails
And remember - we'll always be there.

Out across the dark blue sea, a beam of light revolves
It always comes back round again, watch for it and resolve
Out across the dark blue sea, a beam of light revolves
It always comes back round again, watch for it and resolve

To give and not to count the cost, to overcome the human loss, don't let the wind die down in your sails
And remember - we'll always be there.
