    If you were lucky enough to hear Nick's new song 38 on this tour, I don't know what you think of it, but I personally can't get enough of it. It has become the one I am most eager to hear each show. The emotion and vocal heights he reaches on the chorus send shivers down my spine.

    critch Aye lad, I knew you had it in you

    Yeah, i like it a lot. Maybe it could be his next single... Free download of course! :biggrin:

    SHAUN I It's so clear on the wings of the dawn

    Heard this top tune at Runcorn, Nick considers his songs to be living breathing things so to give birth to yet another quality tune is testament to his writing talent. In addition a large part of this is the way he delivers a song, looking forward to a new album with similar gems!

    Am going to check the lyrics to 38, as looking at what was posted in the Chester thread there were a few ? in some places.

    Don't forget that this is currently work in progress by Nick and is bound to evolve as time moves on.

    I think I may know that.:biggrin:

    But I did get the third verse - I knew there were kings horses and kings men in there somewhere.:D

    Latest: this is as best I recall from last night at Cambridge. Having a few mishaps (such as dropping phone into 3 pieces down behind seats in front of me along with notebook - don't ask!:biggrin:) meant memory, rather than a lot of notes.


    I walked the streets
    Like a man with no name
    Into the bar before the show
    but on another plain
    As the faces turned my way
    I narrowed my eyes
    Like I'd met my maker
    But I did not die
    There'll be no gunflare
    No widow's cry
    But there's an undertaker
    somewhere nearby

    Wherever I go
    Whatever my fate
    I am one
    of the thirty eight
    of the thirty eight

    I'm in the house of the Lord
    but it seems colder within
    Though it's filled with the voices
    of the cherubim
    And in the tiny houses
    with the lights on inside
    Where the little devils
    play seek and hide
    with the bigger picture
    There's a world out there
    so what can be your troubles?
    What are your cares?

    Wherever I go
    Whatever my fate
    I am one
    of the thirty eight
    of the thirty eight

    Whatever I do
    whatever awaits
    I am one
    of the thirty eight

    We'll drink to the children
    We'll drink to the poor
    We'll drink all through Christmas
    And we'll put the world to rights again
    with all the king's horses
    and all the king's men

    Wherever I go
    Whatever my fate
    I am one
    of the thirty eight
    of the thirty eight

    bigchris Aye lad, I knew you had it in you

    WHY oh WHY ? What a waste of time ... what is the point in putting 16 seconds of video on youtube ?! If anyone sees that who doesn't know about Nick's music ... it's just going to put em off for life !!

    Good point, Mr Chris.

    It was interesting though reading through the comments made to the various vids up there. Gives a feel of what people are thinking.
