  • Next to Me - James Walker (Audio)

    I'm so happy to finally be releasing new music. After what feels like an eternity, I can finally announce that I'll be releasing a single every month until my record comes out this November!

    This is 'Next to Me'. It's a song about being with someone out of habit, rather than out of love. How it feels to be so close with someone that you end up feeling so very distant. It's the feeling of slipping away when you're holding onto them at night, or going for dinner and having nothing to say to each other.

    Lyrics:

    [Verse 1]
    The cold wind blows
    And I already know
    That I'm gonna leave you
    You pour the champagne
    You take off your clothes
    But I'm gonna leave you

    [Chorus]
    Even though we fight and try to make things right
    I can't heal the harm
    Your temper's like a hurricane & all your blame's
    Tucked inside your palm
    I'm figuring we can't begin to fix these things
    It's such a shame but it seems
    That I feel all alone even though
    You're sleeping next to me

    [Verse 2]
    The dawn is coming
    And in the cold light I knew
    I don't think I love you
    Like I used to
    Wanna start the fire
    But you can't find the fuse
    Things are going nowhere
    I know

    [Chorus]
    Even though we fight and try to make things right
    I can't heal the harm
    Your temper's like a hurricane & all your blame's
    Tucked inside your palm
    I'm figuring we can't begin to fix these things
    It's such a shame but it seems
    That I feel all alone even though
    You're sleeping next to me

    [Bridge]
    It's hard for me to do it but I know
    We're trying but the truth is we should know
    That trying to make love last
    While living in the past
    Ain't gonna work you know
    'cause you can't just start again

    [Chorus]
    Even though we fight and try to make things right
    I can't heal the harm
    Your temper's like a hurricane & all your blame's
    Tucked inside your palm
    I'm figuring we can't begin to fix these things
    It's such a shame but it seems
    That I feel all alone even though
    You're sleeping next to me
