The second track from our music project experiments in location and field recordings 'Hanging On' The St Illtud's Sessions. Recorded last Autumn in The Galilee Chapel, at the fifth century site of St Illtud's Church, llantwit Major. The track was recorded in one take, we kept the set up simple with condenser mics and an ambient room mic to record in the Galilee Chapel, home to an extraordinary collection of Celtic Stones. Back in the studio Producer Kevs Ford has added a subtle touch of ambient keys and classical guitar to the mix of the field recording of my vocal and guitar.
The St Illtud’s Sessions are an ongoing project which we hope to keep exploring. www.llanilltud.org.uk
Thankyou for listening and supporting the project.

Hanging On

I don’t know how
I don’t know why
I just can’t explain it
My tummy flips
My facade slips
And suddenly I’m hanging on to you

I'm hanging on to you
Hanging on to you
You say you still believe in tomorrow
Hanging onto you
Best I can do
And maybe I’ll believe in tomorrow

She’s over there
Without a care
Carefully constructing
She says it’s like a pen
First it’s your friend
And then it consumes you
Consumes you

And she is hanging on
Hanging on
She says she wants to believe in tomorrow
Keeps her hanging on
Best she can do
And maybe she’ll believe in tomorrow

He’s left behind
In a world
He said he didn’t see
He didn’t it coming
Stiff upper lip
It starts to crumble
And suddenly he is hanging on

He is hanging on
Hanging on
He says he wants to believe in tomorrow
Keeps him hanging on
Best he can do
And maybe he’ll believe in tomorrow

Keeps us hanging on
Hanging on
And maybe we’ll believe in tomorrow
