It's Just Not There (Holdcroft / Shearer)

About It's Just Not There

When everything on the surface seems perfect; when it should be working but there's something missing. When I started performing I realised it was the partner piece to Cold Heart, the other side of the coin if you like.


We felt like soulmates
It felt like it was down to fate
You felt like the female version of me
Yes it felt like it was destiny
Looking at the facts
There shouldn't have been any cracks
Even though there's so much we share
It's just not there

We have so much in common
It reminds me of so much I've forgotten
You're the best person to happen to me
And yet my heart refuses all possibilities
Why can't I let you into my heart?
Why do I have to keep us apart?
It's, it's not fair
But it's just not there

I know I keep hanging on to an old love
It's made you feel that you're not good enough
But it's not that you've done anything wrong
It's just that I still love that stupid girl that's long gone
There's no spark
No lightening in my heart
It's not that I compare
But It's just not there

The longer that we go on
The more your pain is prolonged
When I say those words of love
They don't quite ring true enough
Making love without the right emotions
Just means that we're going through the motions

God knows that we've been trying
But it can't be right if you keep on crying
I was hoping in time things would change
But still my heart still remains the same
I don't regret a thing
But still there's something missing
I wish I could answer your prayers
But it's just not there
I wish I could answer your prayers
But it's just not there
I wish I could answer your prayers
But It's just not there

Joanne Kelly / Strawberry Sundae Radio Show

Reading DJ Joanne wrote a very nice review of a gig I did in 2012 and has played Something Wild quite a few times on her Strawberry Sunday Radio show. Later in the year I had a great interview with her which can be found here, the success of which I think was largely due to the obvious background work she did in preparation for the interview.

Understandably I'm biased because Joanne has been so favourable but I do think she does a great show if you like indie rock, hearing about upcoming bands and a lot more more besides. Strawberry Sundae is on every Sunday at 7pm for two hours. More details can be found here.
