about

Written, performed, arranged, recorded, produced and mastered by Alljook.

I wrote this album between September 2010 and May 2011.
The album was started in Bangor, Northern Ireland and then continued as I moved to Brighton, England for a year.
Certain sections of the album were recorded and mixed in my room in Bangor and the rest in studios in Worthing, West Sussex


Instrumentation:
Fender Telecaster electric guitar, Farida electric bass, Tanglewood acoustic and an unknown spanish acoustic.

Various percussion instruments

Macbook and small collection of recording hardware of my own.
Some lovely microphones and pre amps in college used for recording vocals on tracks 1,2,3,4,6, and 12.

All songs were shaped and moulded inside my own macbook using Logic pro.

Track Name: Try and not need
Try and not need
look too far and you'll make up what you see
Desire before feel
and hold still now while i remember what's been

It only takes a few seconds to think a thought along
the lines of watching lips moving, what will it lead to?
Hold back and hide, seek nothing you cant find.
Leaves you nowhere to be seen with a lack of acquire.
With a head to the ground and a voice to yourself
forces pressure to no one, but your own piece of mind.
But take a guess and go with it, it might lead to promise
and confront a common question with no thought of answer.

Try and not need.
look too far and you'll make up what you see.
Desire before feel.
and hold still now while i remember what's been.

Show your falls with pride, don't give a reason why.
Ask before you think, a need to decide
why you shouldn't be the one to take the first step.
There she is looking at you wanting to be asked it.
If you consider yourself ahead of common cause,
then whose to tell you otherwise.
So take the day in your hand there is a time to be had
and stand out of place like your meant to be there.

Try and not need.
look too far and you'll make up what you see.
Desire before feel.
and hold still now while i remember what's been.
Track Name: Presents of view
Presents of view

Chorus
I'm missing the presents of you
there's something still left to show
still, making conversation can be more than it seems
and joy shows when you take it in your stride

Verse 1
There's something about wasted time
it seems spent until you try
I'l draw on those that pull me through
so follow by, and who knows maybe you'll take my side

Chorus x2
I'm missing the presents of you
there's something still left to show
still, making conversation can be more than it seems
and joy shows when you take it in your stride

Verse 2
Just walking with no require
leaves me without the need for trying
wondering out of control
sets standards of knowledge known
to memorise an outline drawn
ties structure to a common pole
like fixed morals to gentle winds
they'll be blown,
but re-appear when its time for home.

Chorus x2
I'm missing the presents of you
there's something still left to show
still, making conversation can be more than it seems
and joy shows when you take it in your stride
Track Name: Go on
Go on go on go on


Gonna walk this walk a while
but please, can we talk the whole time
gonna stop and wait behind
no line, so make sure your on time tonight
grab a seat and put your feet up
and we'll watch this fall to bits
but its nice knowing
that theres something still in it
lets take the time to find..
if there is and if there is
lets make it happen from now


Go on go on go on


Il sit and think and write up ways
to make a plan that does me more than just a day
or just shoot from the hip and see what leads
surprise entices in en-capturing ways
dont leave this one up to me know
im gonna take this out of my hands
sure, il follow what i see and il figure it out
if your gonna be bad be the worst that you can


Go on go on go on
(please please, leave leave)


Iv seen those eyes now i might go looking
please talk or leave a question waiting
il take it like you wont believe
a word, a line a wait a wait its mine.


please please.. leave leave


Go on go on go on
(please please, leave leave)
Track Name: Look with your hands
Verse
Look with you hands and hold with you eyes.
Stop by even just for a little while.
Don't sit or stand or talk or even see just take.
Grab a bag and fill it with what you need,
its not selfless to want and sometimes you can be seen.
Can you go wild and can you please yourself,
get like crazy and take the wheel for a while.

Chorus
I don't feel like I'm missing out anymore.
I don't feel like I'm missing out anymore.
Before we decide i might need a thought.
I don't feel like I'm missing out anymore.

Verse
At times we can't see the sun for the light.
Your standing in a soundproof room
screaming all the right words at the wrong times.
Lets have a lunch, have a chat and stay for the night.
pull each end of the rope together but somehow leave it untied.

Chorus
I don't feel like I'm missing out anymore.
I don't feel like I'm missing out anymore.
Before we decide i might need a thought.
I don't feel like I'm missing out anymore.

Breakdown
Look with you hands and hold with you eyes.
drop by even just for a little while.
Don't sit or stand or talk or even see just take.
from me

Chorus
I don't feel like I'm missing out anymore.
I don't feel like I'm missing out anymore.
Before we decide i might need a thought.
I don't feel like I'm missing out anymore.
Track Name: I can see a time
I can see a time to be had
I can see a time to be had
therse only eyeing and trying, pushing and looking
tonight there is a time to be had

lights flashing with hands holding
not knowing but wanting
lets make this one not to remember
just do it go crazy

sometimes, what feels like pressure
is the need for what isn't even lacking
the drive for proof but showing and always looking better
when its heard you always let me know
i could wait and it will always come
little laugh to myself and a smile on my face
I know you hide but to me you always show.

I can see a time to be had
I can see a time to be had
therse only eyeing and trying, pushing and looking
tonight there is a time to be had

lights flashing with hands holding
not knowing but wanting
lets make this one not to remember
just do it go crazy
Track Name: Watch it hold tight
Verse1
It looks like its happening
the pieces are pulling together
its we or want
whether we need it or not.

Be cautious of the fences your beginning to build
they start a train of thought that travels in a different way
Il wait a 100 seconds more, make a cause for a call
but hide behind what can be talked and hold in a hidden thought

watch it
watch it
watch it hold tight I'm gonna take this and keep it for a while.
watch it hold tight KEEP IT UP. so soon and you'll draw yourself a line
things that i like. I'l write it out.
watch it hold tight.. and keep it to myself.

Push push and cover up
she takes it without thinking of.
a boy who looks and sees a theme
looks like a kite that's lost its string

To think for a bit that it could have been lost
busier minds seeing busier times, lost lines
though held back hands
and nothing tried with no reason told why


watch it
watch it
watch it hold tight I'm gonna take this and keep it for a while.
watch it hold tight KEEP IT UP. so soon and you'll draw yourself a line
things that i like. I'l write it out.
watch it hold tight.. and keep it to myself.
Track Name: Face to face
You are so in it for this and that what stop you to
show me how.
It always takes you some time and that's how i know that
you are still walking along with the tide.

People all walking and talking, by myself one on one and eye to eye,
face to face nice to have a conversation hey. Same time next week if your ready I'l be waiting.
Seems to be just the one way running, stop! wait! Sit down, pushing and pulling and standing and overlooking.
No more time for tasting the toffee there's only drive thru and leave please. But have a nice day sir.

There's always some time left in the day to make your way home.
So for now will you say and we'll talk if you can keep awake.
its down to you. now lets see if you can keep me
interested in what you have for show ..and tell today.

Track Name: Wait until now
Oh and you wait until now
Oh and you wait until now
no, why did you wait until now
Oh and you wait until now

Headphones in to cover the thought
make what you want from a line in a song
but theres no hope in that kind of bliss
only listening and flawed interpreting

and lets be secretive of what we might show
cause that helps nothing but doubt
jump the gun in long hand monotone
actually, ..I find it kind of cute

Oh and you wait until now
Oh and you wait until now
no, why did you wait until now
Oh and you wait until now

Theres always time to complicate
and recreate a fragile way
theres bitterness in the bites we take
but laughter in the face we make

like wrong trains caught time and again
restaurants and gigs without a drink
if you dont make time it cant be spent
we'll find some fun in everything

A long line of talk quickly changes it shape
like the vines growing new to a starring dead end
its forced and its false but believe it if you need to
but only for now though, soon you'll need to be ready

Oh and you wait until now
Oh and you wait until now
no, why did you wait until now
Oh and you wait until now
