about

Luke James Williams England, UK

Light and dark, ugly and beautiful, happy and sad, fearful and brave, the music of singer songwriter Luke James Williams reflects the opposing forces and wonderful chaos of the world around us. Combining the raw power of PJ Harvey with the delicate sensitivity of Sufjan Stevens, Williams paints pictures with words and sings them in his own distinctly British voice. ... more

Track Name: Snares & Traps
With all the snares and all the traps I’ve built
I never thought I would be the one to fall in
I was so distracted by the prize
I had no idea I’d been left behind in the forest to become my own kill

Well maybe if I hadn’t been so foolish as to push you all away
I wouldn’t be here still with all the snares and all the traps I built

All I did was try to catch you out
I never knew love could be a thing to harness and then harvest
Oh, what a life I’ve missed

Well maybe if I hadn’t been so stupid as to push you all away
I wouldn’t be here still with all the snares and all the traps I built

And I’ve wasted all my time trying to convince myself I was right
But what’s the difference if another bumbling fool falls by the wayside?
And what have I to show for it but a box of my broken pride?
And all the snares and all the traps I built
Track Name: Speak To Me
With all the passersby so silent
It startles when you hear the sound
Of a line cast in the chaos
That proves that there’s life left there in the crowd

Speak to me with all of the blood and rhythm of a human heartbeat
I want to hear the rush of life through every melody
From your thoughts in the hills out through your mouth to me

There must be a thousand ways to hear the truth
But when it’s in your voice it means the most
And when you look in my eyes I start to tremble
Just like I have seen the face of my own ghost

So speak to me with all of the blood and rhythm of a human heartbeat
I want to hear the rush of life through every melody
From your thoughts in the hills out through your mouth to me

Your life paints every word so your words mean everything
Every soul you’ve ever known, every place you’ve ever been
All the things that you once were, everything you’ll ever be
So don’t stop speaking

Speak to me with all of the blood and rhythm of a human heartbeat
So speak to me with all of the blood and rhythm of a human heartbeat
I want to hear the rush of life through every melody
From your thoughts in the hills out through your mouth to me
From your thoughts in the hills out through your mouth to me
Track Name: Rabbit Hole
Where have you gone? Where do you go?
These hidden places nobody knows
How far can you run? How well can you hide?
When what you’re running from is on the inside

You can’t un-see all the things that you’ve seen
If you cannot do it for yourself, would you do this for me?
Cause I can’t watch you fall down that rabbit hole again

Why do you feed the old enemy?
The one that pulls the earth from under your feet
I have seen this change in you
It flows through everything that you say and do

I can’t watch you fall down that rabbit hole again
No I can’t watch you fall down that rabbit hole again and again and again
Again and again and again
Again and again and again
Again and again and again

Where have you gone? Where do you go?
These hidden places nobody knows

You can’t un-see all the things that you’ve seen
If you cannot do it for yourself, would you do this for me?
Cause you won’t un-feel all the things that you’ve felt
If you never let go of the cards you’ve been dealt
No I can’t watch you fall down that rabbit hole again and again
Track Name: Still In Bed
I lay trapped in amber
And you say that I don’t care
But you’ll never know what you do to me
That the things you say shake the core of me

Darling, you’ve floored me again
My limbs feel like they’re filled with lead
I’m still in bed with the words that you said when you left

Well it’s safe to say you never needed a weapon
And I’m sure I’m still carrying your venom
And you’ll never know what you do to me
That the things you say shake the core of me
I wish I could say that I hadn’t seen this coming

Cause it’s been breaking in slow motion

Darling, you’ve floored me again
My limbs feel like they’re filled with lead
I’m still in bed with the words that you said when you left

It’s been breaking in slow motion

Darling, you’ve floored me again
My limbs feel like they’re filled with lead
I’m still in bed with the words that you said
I’ve tried my best but they won’t leave my head
I’m still in bed with the words that you said when you left
Track Name: You Are The Captain
You are the captain, I am the sea birds
I am the row boat, you are the tide
You were the searchlight but I had gone missing
All that I wanted was to be there

You are the headline, I am the misprint
You are the lion, I am the mouse
You are the bloodline, I am just bleeding
All that I wanted was to be there
All that I wanted was to be there

Now that you’ve drawn the line
Let me say one last time
All that I wanted was to be there

Did you reel me in just to cut me loose?
Is there anything that means that much to you?
So go play the apple tree while I struggle to take root
But it’s not your fault that I’m barely hanging on
All that I wanted was to be there

I didn’t need some big part
Not the flame nor the spark
All that I wanted was to be there

You are the captain, I am the sea birds
I am the row boat and you are the tide
You are the bloodline, I am just bleeding
All that I wanted was to be there
All that I wanted was to be there
