lyrics

I don’t leave the radio on anymore
No I don’t leave the radio on anymore

You were a special girl who only needed one more life
Selfishly spoken as I lay in a ball here tonight
I still see you from the corner of my eye
And sometimes I swear I even hear you cry
But you’re just playing with the loose strings of my mind

And I don’t leave the radio on anymore
No I don’t leave the radio on anymore
And there’s no real reason for stumbling through the door
No I don’t leave the radio on anymore

If I’d been more like you I could see myself through this darkness
Won’t somebody please let me out of this bag labeled loneliness
You always landed square on your feet
I hope this time I can be so lucky
As I fall from a billion stories

All about her and the rattle of the keys
That makes the engine purr
And brought her to me
And killed her curiousity

Emptiness is scratching at the screen
Something’s amiss now things have changed
I cannot speak, my tongue, she’s got again

And I don’t leave the radio on anymore
No I don’t leave the radio on anymore
And there’s no real reason for stumbling through the door
No I don’t leave the radio on anymore

about

the james clark institute Toronto, Ontario

With a wink and a nod to the Clarke Institute of Psychiatry in Toronto (now CAMH), The James Clark Institute is the musical guise for singer and songwriter James Clark. Confronting the ghosts of his past, James spins his personal demons into witty, well-crafted pop-folk/rock tunes.

His writing is inspired by the works of Ray Davies, Elvis Costello, Bob Dylan and Michael Nesmith to name a few.
