The album version of 'These Are The Words' is one of the best songs I've ever heard. Amazing rhythm, touching lyrics and the great voice of James make this song so absolutely fantastic.

I think it's my favourite song from 'Some Kind Of Trouble', and I say this, although I don't hear all songs.

"Remind me of childhood memories" - I can't help thinking of Guns 'n Roses 'Sweet Child of Mine'.  Coincidence or inspiration...?  Hmmm... I really like this song.

I'm still trying to work out the 'half past ten' though

I love the chorus and the pace of the song

"One more casualty of easy love (call it half past ten)" I wondered if it was like a 'time of death' - like the death of the relationship was er.. half ten? Maybe I'm being too literal..

Another one of my favorites!! I love the storytelling feel of it. I just want to sit down and listen to James telling his story.

I also wondered about the half past 10 part but then after listening a few times I hear 'call it half past 10' like a time of death or something, as stated above, for his heart? That's what I got from it. That's so sad. I think that's what he's saying anyway.

And also, obviously...are the words he's 'never gonna say again'...I love you? I hope not as those are the sweetest words to say and hear.

It's such a lovely song. I really enjoy it even though it's sad.

Hey lonelydancer, that's funny because things occur to me out of the blue like that, too.

So do you think the words he's never gonna say again are the words...I love you? Is that what you mean by thinking the same? Because he says, 'these are the words that I say to your picture, these are the words that I say in a dream, these are the words that I wished I'd said to you when you were standing here next to me...' Like he wished he had told her he loved her but he didn't say those words? And now he feels he can't say them to anyone else? Wow, it's a song that really makes you think like so many of his songs. Whatcha' think??

I know I'm coming late to the party but I just got my album a short while ago and still figuring it out.

I would like to know what he sings in the background, in the chorus after "One more casualty of easy love"... I'm really trying to understand, but I can't...

Could someone help me, please?  

Edit: Sorry, I just found out that cool as a cucumber already wrote it! Brilliant

MR: Another special song is "These Are The Words."


JB
: That was one of the last songs I wrote for the album. There was a great little discovery before we finished recording. I started off with an old '70s drum machine, which is the same one they used on Sly & The Family Stone. It was a really retro, bass-driven sample.

This is one of my absolute favourites.

I can't stop playing it.

For me, the lyrics are a little heartbreaking, but the upbeat melody helps you 'get on with it'.....

I hope James plays this in concert.
