CHASING THE SUNLIGHT

chasingthesunlight_albumInspired by the title and concept of chasing the sunlight. This latest album became an impassioned pursuit to channel recent events to words and music. Bringing a somber and true emotion to the second studio outing by Killion Finch. The album touches on the sorrow, heartbreak and pain of the ending of so much. The beginning of something new and yet to discovered new chapters and what is to become.

Killion wanted his next album to be rich with intricate orchestrations and powerful arrangements. He wanted to incorporate deep emotional lyrical content and bring out exceptional performances as well as hauntingly strong melodies. Each track being written from a very personal place.

Sunlight – would bring together all Killion had learned from his 2006 debut offering, “Songs of a Lonely Fragile”. Killion knew he could pull from that well of experience and bring an entirely new and more powerful dimension to his latest work. Looking to explore a more emotional place and wide range of subjects that would be touched upon.

This new album would feed the creative beast within and help to close a painful chapter from a very difficult and trying situation.

The album will also include one of Killion’s favorite classic songs. From Crowded House, “Don’t Dream it’s Over. This song has a deep and beautifully haunting story and is an incredible piece of music both lyrically and instrumentally.

Killion’s version will look to pay careful attention in keeping with the song’s honest and emotional foundation. This version of the song, it was decided it would be arranged completely acoustically. This would be to help highlight the song’s incredible lyrics and melody. It is such a beautiful song. It deserves to to be showcased for an entirely new generation. The hope is that those listening to it for the first time, will too, fall in love with it as did Killion so many years ago.

The remaining songs will be sharing the grief and loss of those things which we can not keep or control of ourselves, and must learn to let go and understand their impact and how it can help to make us wiser, stronger and help us to somehow find the forgiveness and our place in it all.



Let You Go
by K. Finch

Why, why are we still left here asking why
Having nothing else left to deny
And still we never got to say goodbye
Leaving no more tears for me to cry
And you have lost the will to even try, even try

So, I will let you go, I’ll let you go
Before you break my heart again
I will let you go, I’ll let you go
As we embrace the bitter end
Embrace the bitter end

Now, how do we move forward from us now
When you choose to blame and disavow
Closing off your heart to not allow, what is now

So, I will let you go, I’ll let you go
Before you break my heart again
I will let you go, I’ll let you go
As we embrace the bitter end

When everything falls apart
I’m left with a broken heart
And all that you’ve ever said
Can never be washed away

The words that I could’t share
The times that you weren’t there
The life you’ve taken from me

So I will let you go, I’ll let you go
Before you break my heart again
I will let you go, I’ll let you go
As we embrace the bitter end

I will let you go, I’ll let you go
Before you break my heart again
I will let you go, I’ll let you go
As we embrace the bitter end

(I will let you go, I’ll let you go)
Oh la la la, embrace the bitter end
(I will let you go, I’ll l let you go)
Oh I’ll let you go as we embrace the bitter end

(I will let you go, I’ll let you go)
(I will let you go, I’ll let you go)

Fade: (Mr Jones and me
Tell each other fairy tales
And we stare at the beautiful women…)

Crashing Down
by K. Finch

There’s only silence and unknown
After all that’s been said and done

Only your blindness have you sown
And all your blame can not make it better

You can tear it all apart
As you mock my broken heart

When your words come crashing down
Don’t fear what’s found

Guilt defiance you now own
And still you’re here where it’s begun

After your tears and lies are shown
They all remain but you’re no cleaver

You can play the bitter heart
As you watch mine fall apart

When your words come crashing down
Don’t fear, what’s found

When your words go round and round
I hear, no sound

(break)

Words come crashing down
Words come crashing down


Chasing the Sunlight
by K. Finch

In the storm I lost the fight
Tossed about the sea

I know your heart
Can not deny
It wouldn’t let me in

And after all I guess you knew
It was only make believe,
And fairy tales for you

And still my heart it can’t deny
No Disney ending waiting here for you
I am all that waits for you
While you’re chasing the sunlight

Angry words you can’t recalled
Something you deny

Nothing left to feel
And I will try to fight
And forget the lies you told
Make them disappear

Leave it all behind
Still you chose to walk away
The things you can not buy
Are best to leave behind

And lost between the you and I
Are promises the day we said, I do
Still I wait here for you
Just chasing the sunlight
Chasing the sunlight

(Solo)

Chasing the sunlight
Chasing the sunlight

 

Don’t Dream it’s Over
by Crowded House

There is freedom within, there is freedom without
Try to catch the deluge in a paper cup
There’s a battle ahead, many battles are lost
But you’ll never see the end of the road
While you’re traveling with me

Hey now, hey now
Don’t dream it’s over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
We know they won’t win

Now I’m towing my car, there’s a hole in the roof
My possessions are causing me suspicion but there’s no proof
In the paper today, tales of war and of waste
But you turn right over to the TV page

Hey now, hey now
Don’t dream it’s over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
We know they won’t win

Now I’m walking again to the beat of a drum
And I’m counting the steps to the door of your heart
Only shadows ahead, barely clearing the roof
Get to know the feeling of liberation and release

Hey now, hey now
Don’t dream it’s over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
We know they won’t win

Well, don’t let them win
Hey now, hey now
Don’t let them win
Don’t let them win, yeah

Until The World Stops Spinning
K. Finch

You were my delight
Shining for the souls of the night
now everything is faded
from the light
it’s all that I can find

I won’t deny, everything
That you have left behind
I loved you with a love that was so blind
Again, to see, with all my pride

And I don’t know if your love’s, been taken all away
And I don’t know what will be, except for our today
A love that I can see, and that will not go away
Until the world stops spinning

You can take your love away
But my heart will not obey
I will hold you in my arms
Until the world stops spinning

It’s a love you can’t deny
I can see it in your eyes
We can fall for all the lies
Until the world stops spinning
Till the world stops spinning

I can read you eyes
Like the mourning and the sorrow
Of the night

Like the fields of all your words
In the mirrors of your mind

And I said, I don’t know
How to hold, the love
That always walks away

And though I am here
I could walk there tonight
I could hold on to your love
And take in all the light
If we only have this moment
Let me hold you one more time
Until the world stops spinning

You can tear it all apart
You can even break my heart
Still I’ll never let you go
Until the world stops spinning

You can take your love away
But my heart will not obey
Let me hold you in my arms
Until the world stops spinning
Till the world stops spinning

You can tear it all apart
You can even break my heart
Still I will never let you go
Until the world stops spinning

You can take your love away
But my heart will not obey
So let me hold you in my arms
Until the world stops spinning
Till the world stops spinning

I’m gonna hold you in my arms
Until the world we know is gone
Nut I’ll never let you go
Until the world stops spinning

And I’ll leave it all behind
Till there’s nothing left to find
Still I’ll never let you go
Until the world stops spinning
Gonna leave it all behind
