Cry to Heaven

Several years ago I was in a band with a guy called Adam Rogers, with whom I also shared a day job. The band never went anywhere for a number of reasons, but one of the highlights was that we recorded this song, which Adam wrote. I absolutely adored it then and could really identify with where Adam's head was when he wrote it. He told me I could do something with it, and here's my first effort, which I put together in a huge hurry for an application to the JBSeed for funding. It's not quite right yet (the vocals suck - I sang some wrong words on the demo), but you should get the idea.

Update: If you feel generous you can now buy the version of this song released on The Genre Benders' debut CD "I am leaving! I am leaving!" from iTunes, or GroupieTunes, or Payplay.FM. If you have a different favourite online store, search for it there and if it's not there, let me know so I can put it there.

Cry to Heaven (in Am)

Looking back over wasted time I'm wondering where I went wrong.
I'm thinking maybe it was all in my mind - an illusion all along.
Picking up the pieces of broken dreams lying scattered on the floor.
Is anything really as it seems? I don't know what to believe anymore.

And though I don't really have a religion,
I've never really had much faith at all,
Tonight I feel I could cry to heaven.
Yeah tonight I feel I could cry to heaven.


I seem to spend my whole life on the run trying to hide from the pain.
But a broken heart is like a setting sun; you know it always rises again.
They say a fortress built on bitterness is no more than an empty shell.
But if it hides my loneliness, maybe that's just as well.

I'm not really sure if it was my decision
Or if I even had much choice at all.
But tonight I feel I could cry to heaven.
Yeah tonight I feel I could cry to heaven.


Looking back over wasted time, how could I have got it so wrong?
I should have known fromteh start it was all in my mind; an illusion all along.

You know I don't really have a religion,
I've never really had much faith at all,
But tonight I feel I could cry to heaven.
Yeah tonight I feel I could cry to heaven.
Tonight I feel I could cry ...

G'day Hughie

Never thought I'd find this out there in cyberspace! Thanks for the credit - it's always been one of my fave songs. Nice version by the way. Remember Amnesia??

Cheers

Hey Hughie.....

I have only heard this song a couple of times, but think it's a beautiful song...
It is so where my life is right now and have used several lyrics as my facebook profile status....
Well done Adam for coming up with such a meaningful but very beautiful song......

Regards Diane....
