about

Following C Side Volume 3 in numerical succession, 'Drowning Silver' once again captures Jimmy Sky's bedroom/garage interpretation of romance, life, love and learning through the medium of music. Big drums and catchy melody combine with dark pop and jangly acoustic guitar to whisk the listener away on a journey of raw emotion.
Consistently loyal to the notion that live knocks, natural hiss and backdrop discordance make for a more realistic and gritty sonic experience, this collection keeps up with digital vinyl tradition, presenting seven songs on one continuous track.
'C Side Volume 4: Drowning Silver' draws on some of Jimmy's most lyrically honest, raw and heartfelt moments to deliver remastered anthems for the human condition, nostalgia and eternal love.

1. FAREWELL MAMA

So I faced up to the truth
You were never there
And I could tell you true
I didn't really care
Now it's all over
Well it hurts like hell
Here I broke up all my promises
And I said farewell

Wah wah wah wah wah wah mama
Wah wah wah wah wah wah well well
Wah wah wah wah wah wah mama
Wah wah wah wah wah wah farewell

I don't lay no blame
You did the best you can
You're still the only one
But now the lord has taken you to him

Wah wah wah wah wah wah mama
Wah wah wah wah wah wah well well
Wah wah wah wah wah wah mama
Wah wah wah wah wah wah farewell

I won't come to say goodbye
I won't come to say goodbye

Wah wah wah wah wah wah mama
Wah wah wah wah wah wah well well
Wah wah wah wah wah wah mama
Wah wah wah wah wah wah farewell




2. FORTY CENTS

Drowning in the silver water
Where the lion never sleeps

And the world must know

Why do you sit
Take every hit
Like a canvas
For the violence of his childhood
It would be
So damn easy baby
Just to run
And never look back
Like it's nothing

You're drowning in the silver water
Where the lion never sleeps

And the world must know

He tried so hard
To beat the odds
But now he sleeps in a treehouse
Built by children years ago
Too much grog
Not enough love and tenderness
And no-one cares if he's dying now
He is nothing

He's drowning in the silver water
Where the lion never sleeps

And the world must know

Forty cents
Is all it takes to help them
But no-one gives a damn or a dime
Cause they might lose too much time
In this world
We're all cursed
Until we find our sinking hearts
We are nothing

He's drowning in the silver water
Where the lion never sleeps

And the world must know



3. SNOW SONG

If I saw you standing on a precipice
About to fall into the arms of darkness
Then I would come and take your hand together stand
And wait with you to walk away or step into the cold

I know
You will be the door to heaven
When you go
Lying in the snow forever
I'll stay with you

Until we fall into the halls of ever after
I'll become your evergreen and alabaster
All above the winter stars are raining on
The light of love is shining on your face and in your heart

I know
You will be the door to heaven
When you go
Lying in the snow forever
I'll stay with you

4. SONG FOR US

Do you remember we were young
So highly strung
Songs that were sung

When the stars were shining bright
Saying goodnight
Always a goodnight

Did I hold you just like now
And say I love you
I'll always love you

Now you say we've fallen down
Our love is over
It'll never be over

I just want to break your heart
I just want to break my heart
I just want to break your heart
I just want to break my heart

So we can go
So we can go
So we can go
So we can go back

So you tell me love is gone
It's cold and you cry
Tell me an old lie

Oh it's always just like you
To say it's over
It'll never be over

I just want to break your heart
I just want to break my heart
I just want to break your heart
I just want to break my heart

So we can go
So we can go
So we can go
So we can go back



5. WINGS

Love love love
Why are you out here on your own
I was already on my way
Love love love
Tell me who and what you've done
All I ever asked was honesty

I look into your eyes
I stare inside your face
And I know you'll break my heart
I know what you will say

There was a moment where I thought you were an angel
There was a moment where I thought you were with me
For a minute there it seemed you weren't a stranger
But now all I want to do every minute is spread my wings

Darling darling honey pie
Won't you quit this path you're on
I can give you almost anything
Oh sugar lover razor burn
Can't you kill me kinder
Can't you hold me like you promised that day

I look into your eyes
I stare inside your face
And I know you'll break my heart
I know what you will say

There was a moment where I thought you were an angel
There was a moment where I thought you were with me
For a minute there it seemed you weren't a stranger
But now all I want to do every minute is spread my wings

Oh darling don't you tell me
This ain't ecstasy
Oh baby come on give me
Something real

There was a moment where I thought you were an angel
There was a moment where I thought you were with me
For a minute there it seemed you weren't a stranger
But now all I want to do every minute is spread my wings



6. KLAATU

My love
Come down from your high place
Tomorrow
Won't come again my friend

No sun

So hold your hands up to the dark
Show them how you mean more than you are
If your story's almost over
Take my hands in yours and go
Make it seem like it's not really over
If a kiss will last forever

Our home
Is going away
This sorrow
Well heaven knows the end is here

No sun

So hold a candle to the dark
Show the world that you mean more than you are
And if your story's almost over
Take my hand in yours and go
Make it seem like it's not really over
As if our love could last forever

In my heart
My heart

I can't see the end
I can't see the end
Cause we'll be here for forever

Hold your hands up to the stars
Show them how we mean more than we are
If our story's almost over
Take my hands in yours and go
Make it seem like it will never be over
Because our love will last forever

In my heart
In my heart



7. ANYTHING AND ANYONE

Don't take me out and don't take me home
I'm no good without nor with anyone at all
I'm sure to let you down I'm sure to break your heart
For I am here in doubt of everyone

Sure I see the light shining on your face
And no I can't deny that it's anything but grace
But here is why I won't and here I cannot stay
Pure and devout is someone I will never be

Wake up to you and no, I'll be there
Wake up to you and no, I'll be there

Tell me that your wrong is anywhere but right
Let me see the wound, the scar behind your eyes
Hold me in your arms break on down and cry
I'll be your broken bones and love you one more time

Wake up to you and know, that I'll be there
Wake up to you and know, that I'll be there
