James McFadden London, UK

James is a singer songwriter from Muswell Hill, North London. His songs draw upon the music he was brought up around, in a household of country music and rock n roll. These influences and a love of classic singer-songwriters combine with his own love of classic British bands and soul, giving his songs a contemporary fusion of all of these strands. ... more

Track Name: Crossing Over
Sail away cause I don’t feel no more
I’m all washed up and out of line
My minds been flooded by the tears that you have cried
So I’ll be crossing over tonight

How can it be so wrong but feel so right?
When love is far away and hope is out of sight
It’s a place I go where day don’t turn to night
It’s a place I go that I know you despise
Where the water’s high and there’s a cruel fast tide
That I’ll be crossing over tonight

Sail away cause I don’t fear no more
All my love has been swept aside
I’ve grown tired of the hate and the lies
So I’ll be crossing over tonight

How can it be so wrong but feel so right?
When love is far away and hope is out of sight
It’s a place I go where day don’t turn to night
It’s a place I go that I know you despise
Where the water’s high and there’s a cruel fast tide
That I’ll be crossing over tonight, tonight

I’m staying alive with a thorn in my side on a sinking boat
So throw me a line and send me a sign and I won’t go
Cause it’s a bitter wind it’s a sure-fire thing and it’s keeping me alive
It’s a place I go where I’ll stay afloat if I just make it to the other side

But how can it be so wrong but feel so right?
When love is far away and hope is out of sight
It’s a place I go where day don’t turn to night
It’s a place I go that I know you despise
Where the water’s high and there’s a cruel fast tide
That I’ll be crossing over tonight
Track Name: Love I Abide
Love I abide, I know sometimes you’ll make me wonder
Whether this love is on time, or do I bide here for another
I know that you can change your mind
And turn my sunlight into thunder
And if I don’t swim against the tide
You will try and pull me under

Love I abide, I remain in the vine
There’s no urgency
Just let me know what you need
Love I abide, so abide in me

Love I’ve surmised, you’re cold alone your heart is tender
Cause of two halves it is comprised, without one there is no other
You’ll be straight and speak your mind
And take away what I don’t nurture
All that’s yours is mine in time
If I have faith and don’t desert her

Love I abide, I remain in the vine
There’s no urgency
Just let me know what you need
Love I abide, so abide in me
Track Name: System Diagnosis
Starting now to realise
All of your words baby were lies
I don’t want to cry now so maybe I’ll hide now and weep away
And suffer in silence and let my body take the blame

Got this strange feeling again
Runs from the heart and enters the fray
I don’t want to feed it but maybe I need it running through my veins
To suffer in silence and let my body take the blame

System diagnosis what do you see and what do you say
What’s the solution is this retribution running through my veins
System diagnosis I can hear you ticking away
So tell me know if I’m to blame
And show me how if I can change

Settle down to rearrange
Recurring numbers on a page
I don’t want to slide now so maybe I’ll hide now and waste away
And suffer in silence and let my body take the blame

System diagnosis what do you see and what do you say
What’s the solution is this retribution running through my veins
System diagnosis I can hear you ticking away
So tell me know if I’m to blame
And show me how if I can change

It’s a cold, it’s a broken heart again

System diagnosis what do you see and what do you say
What’s the solution is this retribution running through my veins
System diagnosis I can hear you ticking away
So tell me know if I’m to blame
And show me how if I can change

Cause it’s a cold it’s a broken heart again
