Help Me Make It To The Night is a love letter from me to the 1980s. It started out as a bass line and a few snippets of lyrics, and took me more than a year (on and off) to finally put to bed.

Lyrics:
Call you up, are you okay?
I'm already on my way
I hope that I'm not out of line
But I think about you all the time

If you go left when I go right
Well, maybe you can spend the night
I don't mind if you haven't got long
I just want you to listen to this song

'Cause I'm afraid of growing old
Wasted pages and years I've sold
I bite my lip when I can't speak
I turn my head, and I grit my teeth

Cause there's a face that I love
But I don't know what it means
A mouth full of brass tacks and gasoline
But if you get up and shut the light
You know I won't put up a fight

This dance is such a fright
You know I'm not one to fight
I don't care if I'm alright
Just help me make it to the night

Call you up, are you okay?
I'm already on my way
I hope that I'm not out of line
But I think about you all the time

If you go left when I go right
Well, maybe you can spend the night
I don't mind if you haven't got long
I just want you to listen to this song

You've got a face that I love
Oh don't you know what I mean
My heart full of marbles and saccarine
But if you just let me hold you tight
I think I'm gonna be alright

This dance is such a fright
You know I'm not one to fight
I don't care if I'm alright
Just help me make it to the night

Cool little Indian motif/backwards sounding guitar on this intro here, Ian!

I like the new sound. Very easy to move to. Very catchy, and has a new feeling to it, although it is consistent with your trademark 80' sound that we've all come to know and love.

I am impressed by how far you have come, and am looking forward to more!

Good to hear from you again :)

Glad you like it! I've been trying to make my sound even more polished, professional, and integrated. I think this album is going to be a good one for me - one I can get some attention for, if I push it.
