BOY ONE

Broken Skies, The Single, And The Video

Broken Skies | Boy One

The Video

This Song is Dedicated to Greta Thunberg…

And Every Other School Kid Around The World Facing an Uncertain Future

I released the track ‘Broken Skies’ in 2020 as a single and then remixed it for the album. Conor Brady, my old buddy from the Blades came up with some lovely guitar parts for the song. One of the busiest session men around, he recorded them in his own studio and sent the files over to me which got around the lockdown nicely.

A Letter from Sir David Attenborough

I made a video for the single and I wrote to Sir David Attenborough asking him for permission to use some of his ‘Planet Earth’ footage. The gentleman that he is, at the age of 94, he took the time to write me a handwritten note explaining that the BBC owns all the copyright to his work. I didn’t mind. I was more chuffed to receive a letter from the great man.

Lyrics

WE’RE RUNNING OUT OF TIME
THERE’S NOWHERE TO HIDE
THE SUN THAT GAVE US LIFE
WILL BURN THROUGH THESE BROKEN SKIES

WHAT CAN WE DO
IS IT TOO LATE FOR YOUR RESCUE?
SAY IT ISN’T TRUE
WE COULD SAVE YOU IF WE WANTED TO
WE CAN’T AFFORD TO LOSE
WHEN TOMORROW COMES WE’LL STAND ACCUSED

WE’RE RUNNING OUT OF TIME
THERE’S NOWHERE TO HIDE
THE SUN THAT GAVE US LIFE
WILL BURN THROUGH THESE BROKEN SKIES

THERE’S NO EXCUSE
THIS IS SOMETHING WE CAN NEVER UNDO
I PRAY THAT SOMEDAY SOON
SEEDS OF DOUBT WILL GROW AND FOREVER BLOOM

WE’RE RUNNING OUT OF TIME
THERE’S NOWHERE TO HIDE
THE SUN THAT GAVE US LIFE
WILL BURN THROUGH THESE BROKEN SKIES

WE GOTTA STAY COOL
STOP HAVING A MELTDOWN IN THESE SEAS OF BLUE

WE’RE RUNNIN’ OUT OF TIME
THERE’S NOWHERE TO HIDE
THE SUN THAT GAVE US LIFE
WILL BURN THROUGH THESE BROKEN SKIES
WHILE THE WORLD SLOWLY DIES
WHILE THE WORLD SLOWLY….. DIES
