A little while ago, I was working with Tim Yatras and a couple of other really talented writers and musicians on some song submissions for J-pop artists. We basically get an outline of what sort of thing they’re after and it’s thrown out to the writing team to come up with a rough draft of a song to send back, and ultimately our contact in Japan pitches it to the artist along with other producers and songwriting companies around the world.
Like Secret Tears, this one wasn’t picked up and we thought it was too good to let go unheard. I finished the song, wrote a solo, then TY did the lyrics and live drums. Reluctantly, I did the vocals (I hadn’t sung in a while when we did this track but it seemed like something that would suit my voice) and it came up a lot better than I expected.
If we ever take Clarity out as a live act, this song will be in the set for sure!
When you feel you can’t go on
When the road is much too long
If you feel the winter long and cold
If the chill of Autumn wind
Is underneath your skin
I guess it’s time to find some hope
And this life is tough I know
The thought of the unknown
And then facing it all on your own
Oh, I keep living on, moving on
While the world around me slows
Oh, there’s a better place that I know
Is it too far to go?
If feel that sombre way
It’s too hard to face the day
When everything is oh so wrong
