About the songs
This was about a street racer, who raced his last race and didn’t make it.
The main guts of the story came from the Paul Walker saga.
In the song he crashes badly, and the roll cage fails, leaving him inside the burning wreck, from where he is rescued. He wife is pregnant, but she hasn’t and cannot tell him, as she watches him fade away.
It was also written to relate to other health issues such as terminal illness or a sudden fatal accident.
All have the same endings.
Having beaten leukaemia and lost my mother to cancer I can relate to this on a personal level. Even on the best days it can jolt the memories.
No Gas, Lost Roads
This song was written from a personal experience, the break-up of my marriage, and the uncertainty of what the future held.
I wrote this from a first-person perspective, giving a more intimate feeling and truth. A lot of people can relate to the feelings created during these times.
Could Get Used To This
This song is about life and making it yours.
Having a dream and making that dream come alive regardless of the odds.Creating a bright new future, working in a job or lifestyle that you enjoy.
The basis of the song is a young couple selling everything they own to buy a small holding, living on the land, living free.
Country Boy can survive
Being a country boy, I worked in London and loathed every minute of it.
Concrete jungle, living and working on top of each other, stifling and disconnected. No space to relax and unwind, the city never sleeps. Nowhere to go without being scrutinised by 500,000 people.
The way high rollers work ridiculous hours and carry on partying into the early hours of the morning only to start again a few hours later. Using substances to help them through, this being a norm.
The loss of communication between people and the lack of traditional values and manners. You can’t ask the time and a guy won’t open a door for a girl, as it’s the modern way. Or he thinks it’s not his place too.
A country boy can survive and reset once he returns to his roots.
