about

'Next to Me' is a song about being with someone out of habit, rather than love.

This song is the first single from James Walker's upcoming record, 'English Bones', out this November.

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
