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.
And though I don't really have a religion,
I'm not really sure if it was my decision
You know I don't really have a religion,
