about

This is the lead track taken from Bolton based James M Carson's upcoming debut EP. Carson's first single showcases his soaring voice and intricate and luminous guitar arrangements.

Not unlike music from the hills of 70s Laurel Canyon, Carson's songs evoke shadows of simpler times when the quest for melody was king. James has been influenced by the melodic melancholy and intimate lyricism of singer songwriters like Neil Young and Elliott Smith, but equally entranced by the power pop hooks of bands such as Teenage Fanclub as well as their grunge admirers, Nirvana.

lyrics

[Lyrics]

Have you heard of late from the self marked man?
Sealed his own fate when he played his hand
Crashed through your door like a marching band
Disappeared in the crowd like a grain of sand

You remember that something went wrong
But you don't recall who was at fault
Made you feel like you could have held on
Nothing is lost if you didn't belong

Punching the clock in a dead end town
Put in the work just to get put down
You've waited in vain for fortunes grace
How easily daggers fit into place

Wasn't it sad when you couldn't hold on?
You cried for a tad then you learned to get strong
Makes you feel like you've never done wrong
Nothing is lost if you didn't belong

Have you heard of late form the self marked man?
Sealed his own fate when he played his hand
You've waited in vain for fortunes grace
How easily daggers fit into place

Wasn't it sad when you couldn't hold on?
You cried for a tad then you learned to get strong
Makes you feel like you've never done wrong
Nothing is lost if you didn't belong

You remember that something went wrong
But you don't recall who was at fault
Made you feel like you could have held on
Nothing is lost if you didn't belong
