Lou Reed / Velvet Underground feel to it - good songs, quite quirky and unusual, thoughtful lyrics and some stand out guitar playing! Brian Hurrell, Wychwood,

It's Just Not There

(Holdcroft / Shearer)

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
