lyrics

And did you hear my words, spoke softly? Every day in black for years.
Some days I wish I were a bottled genie and just rub that lamp and disappear.
Where’s the light that you bestowed upon me. Fragmented like a prism, flowing down.
Forgotten like those Hollywood young starlets. Lost among the ghosts of Tinseltown.
On the table is a Black and white picture. The monochrome has faded to a light brown hue.
What happened to the 60’s dream they pitched ya? Turns out that it was just on loan to you.
I take my seat and ride upon this ghost train. Towards some faded, jaded Seaside town.
That’s forgotten like those Hollywood young starlets. Lost among the ghosts of Tinseltown.
Lord, I need you now. Lord, I need you now. Lord, I need you now. Lord, I need you now.

Tales of the Tape:

Recorded by Mick Wilson at Far end Studios, and at home by Jim Boggia.

Mick Wilson played drums, bass, toy box piano, Peter Fenn memorial organ, the mellotron sounds, never questioned the timing and kept us all in the loop. Jim Boggia pulled out all the stops, pushed them back in, entered the loop, said “Jeez” and delivered the backing vocals with only seconds left on the clock. I sang, played 12 string electric guitar, sleigh bells, questioned the loop, emailed Jim, waited, emailed Jim (again), successfully evoked the “60’s dream” and tried (unsuccessfully) to add the fourth “Yeah”.

A pinch of The Beatles, a touch of Beach Boys & splash of Todd Rundgren all add up to nine classic songs about love, loss, faith and hope. The Grown Ups is an album of classy and intelligent melodic pop. Pop music for grown ups, if you will… ... more
