Lyrics
we walk until we drop - lost upon the way
we got no way to stop, question or delay
light into dark, bright into grey
something in my heart wouldn't go away

we're writing on the wall -the words are falling down
we're standing six feet small on other sides of town
lying alone drifting through thought
subtle undertone waiting to be caught

oh man, what a mess we made out of order and trust
and promises we got no means to keep
'cause nothing matters when you sleep

light into dark bright into grey
something in my heart wouldn't go away
couldn't go away

Julian - what a pleasure to see something new from you! Your vocals and guitar are just magical and so well showcased here. Your lyrics and harmonies are beautiful, thoughtful and full of heart. Really nice percussion and I LOVE the whistling! Thanks for the gift of this download!

At long last
a Hackney tune. Well I can't poke fun... I have not been around much myself.

Hope all is well. This is beautiful and good on the ears! Very nicely done!

brilliant
Another corker! I love the stripped down (ohh) voice and guitar iteration of the Bloke. The song seems to be built around the sustained note, and it works brilliantly. Perfectly modulated misery, my life is whole again.

Beautiful
Nice to hear something new from you, Julian. I was totally sold at "...matters when you sleep": great rich vocal tone, solid vibrato. Great stuff!

So lovely to be hearing this again, about time too.
Have always loved this song and I am glad that you actually decided to just leave it as it was. Intimate and personal.
Cheers

The sustained guitar notes in the early section dragged me in. I get a bit of a Kenny Rankin feel to this with its light, tuneful vocal. Fine harmony -the warm edges blend beautifully. Thoughtful lyrics. I like the whistling too - subtle and tuneful. Quality all the way, Julian.

Classy Julian
Lovely playing, lovely singing, lovely song and lovely to hear you again.

Nicely understated accompaniment (subtle touch with the whistling - I wonder what happened to Roger Whittaker?)

Cheers

Julian, so great to hear one from you. You are still one the most talented artists that I have ever come across, definitely one of my favorites. Your keen sense of interesting melody is evident here and your smooth vocal style is perfect in this setting. One thing that I have noticed on this track is the restrained vibrato on your vocal lines. I think for lesser singers (like me), vibrato is a needed element, but with your smooth delivery, less vibrato paints an honest picture. Love it.

Vocal is...
wonderful, sincere, totally on pitch, and beautifully nuanced...the harmony adding a sweet dimension that is just so easy on the ears. Perfect accompaniment, too, one that lets the vocal come through so clearly. Such a sad lyric, but you give it a genuine longing with this spectacular presentation. Just a joy to hear this kind of music. :)

what's going on here? i decide to come back after over a year, then suddenly see an upload by you also. turning back to the old MJ it seems.
love the chords you used--still the unconventional tuning? the melody is tops it all, though. still got it.

Mmmm, sweet.
Your ostinato picking is fluid, precise, and beautiful, and your voice is wonderfully expressive. The arrangement is understated and incredibly effective, and the vocal harmony is spot on! Sort of an Art Garfunkel meets Phil Collins thing going on. Thanks for the download!

Another fine panting
This song, like EVERY song of yours, has a really "together" sound. Vocals, guitar & rythm. Also, your lyrics paint very vivid emotional scenes. Thanks.

Vocal harmony is superb, I wish I could hold notes that long. Beautiful song which reminds me in it's general feel and sound of some of the tracks on Jethro Tull's minstrel in the Gallery. Guitar sound and playing is also perfectly fitting.

Something
I connected with this one right away. Even without the very fine production, the basic song and honest performance make this a keeper. (thanks for the dload too!). I can imagine this as solo voice and guitar in an intimate venue as well and it wouldn't lose a thing. Your orchestration here though with the backing vocals and rhythm etc are perfect. Just enough to further polish the main message without getting in the way. I'm really impressed and this song has touched me. Thanks Julian.

Are you...
... familiar with William Fitzsimmons at all? I can definitely hear him in this. Worth checking out (if you haven't before that is).

You know... this song puts everything I've been going through lately in words. Top notch writing, performance, and recording. Excellent stuff!
