On Collision

Updated: May 17, 2021

On collision is track 5 on the Album,

It's all about me meeting someone in St George V playing fields in Bloxwich who made me realise i was no longer in love with my partner and that i needed to do something about it.

I used to walk my partners dog around the playing fields most days but, towards the end of our relationship, i felt very lonely and unloved and sad. Although i was born in Bloxwich and tried to live there, i could never really warm to the place and i found myself deeply unhappy.

We had a beautiful house and gardens but what good is all that when we could both tell that we didn't love each other anymore.

I met this girl in the park whilst we were walking our dogs one day and just started chatting. She seemed so understanding of my predicament that she suggested we meet for a longer talk, we both ended up opening our hearts to each other and i started to fall for her.

I knew then i was on collision but i ran away from it out of respect for my partner.

Anyway to cut a long story short the song is about me meeting this beautiful woman in the park in Bloxwich but running away from the situation.

I tried to give the verses a Lou Reed kind of feel, trying always not to over produce the song.

I love the simplicity of it and hope that some of you can relate to it.
