Jesse O'Mahoney- Song, Tom Sidebottom- Production and Music, Rob McVey- Guitar, Vocal- Emma Sargison


I look across at your still hands
And remember how they held mine as we danced
I look down at you blank eyes
And remember how just this morning they cried

You will never comfort me
Your lips will never part when you breathe
When you breathe

The after life isn't all it seems
I sift through your last words,
to see what they might mean
But they don't mean a thing
Cos you'd never knew how much I would need

And when I touch you, you feel cold
And when I move you, you just roll
And I don't choose this end at all
I choose us oh.

Turn against the pretty sky
And hide your head and shut your eyes
You don't deserver to live a life
If you can't make these words sound right

Tom, battling the inadequacies of an old music programme called Cool Edit Pro (no bars or beats to aid production) worked on an instrumental track called Spanish Sadness with Rob McVey of Long View when they studied together at Salford University. After hearing Rob's skill with an old nylon string guitar (one of about eight dotted around Rob's room) Tom provided a rich backing track to allow Rob to improvise over. The result was an intensely sad piece of music that shifted subtly between anger and a deep sense of loss. When Jesse heard it the words and melody of the vocal fell into place almost immediately: A lover, lamenting the end of a relationship as though grieving a death. In the wreckage of their despair they see their lover, dead, motionless, lost to them. Their eyes had cried only a few hours ago and are now dull and lifeless and empty. Emma Sargison provided the angelic, almost brittle vocal and Tom capped it with the string section.
