I've called this Album HE'S ALWAYS THERE because a lot of the songs reflect on the idea of God's staying love. Some of the tracks have a pop feel. Some have a more gospel feel and a couple are just ballad style love songs. I have written them over the past year or so and have got my inspiration from various sources. A word, the way I've felt on different days and things happening around me.
IMPOSSIBLE DREAM for example, I wrote after I had fallen asleep with the telly on. In my sleepy state I picked up on a storyline that led to this song. FUNNY AIN'T IT, touches on social issues. CARRY YOU - I love because it just lifts my spirits, with it's reminder that I am never alone. The inspiration for BROKEN CRACKER came from a talk I heard. The speaker took a biscuit cracker and broke it in two. Then he carefully put both pieces of them together and held the cracker up. Of course from a distance the break did not show and the lyrics are based on that fact.
The origin of PSALM 47 is obvious but MY PRAYER is also loosly based on one of the psalms. GET AROUND I wrote one day after work. I was coming home and was rather broke that day but I just had a sense that things would work ot for me, as it had always done in the past. I'll leave you to discover what the other songs are about for yourself. I hope my sense of humour also comes through in some of the lyrics, but most of all I hope listening to them brightens up your day.
