about

Words and Music by Don Hawkins.

"Originally a demo recording handed over to me 20 some odd years ago. I've held onto it in a grip like vice hoping that one day I would be able to sing it. That day has come. From one of my favorite all time songwriters Don Hawkins. Criminally unknown and Crazy is just a drop in the bucket of his insane arsenal of songs. Please seek him out. His work is astonishing."

lyrics

I go crazy
Sometimes when I'm alone
And I thinks things
That really aren't my own
I'm so desperate
I reach for the telephone
For someone to save me
When I'm sinking like a stone

Then you're there even when you're not there
Then you're there even when you're not there
Always like a spark in the distance somewhere
You're still there even when you're not there

I'm awakened
From the longest dream
And I'm shaking
The fear is gripping me
Why can't this be easy
Why can't there be some way around
I'm so trapped by
All the secrets I have found

Then you're there even when you're not there
Then you're there even when you're not there 
How can you be both a circle and a square
You're still there even when you're not there

This is what I know
This is what I know
Don't ask me how I know

There's this language
That I don't understand
In between the lines
It slips right through my hands
Certain, I'm frozen where I stand
Listening gently
As every sentence lands

Then you're there even when you're not there
Then you're there even when you're not there 
Always like a spark in the distance somewhere
You're still there even when you're not there

Then you're there even when you're not there
Then you're there even when you're not there 
How can you be both a circle and a square
You're still there even when you're not there

about

Gail George New York, New York

Genre defying, the songwriting and production of Gail George is the sum of her musical parts. Melodic vocals over chiming guitars. Swirls of synth driven 80s piano and keyboards. A nod to 60s and 70s soulful pop and psychedelic rock all help to create a unique and distinctive but identifiable sound. She’s California pop meets New York grit. With a touch of whimsy and a whole lot of heart. ... more
