Arthur, James - When You're Losing Sleep In Aberdeen Lyrics




I look around and I know that everyone in here
Has felt the warmth of Dawson
I look around and I know that we'll be cold and full of disappointment
When he goes away

It's so hard just to say goodbye
If I could open up I think I just might cry
'Cause I'm losing my best friend
Feels like I'm losing both my arms
I don't want you to go, but I know you have to

If you're losing sleep in Aberdeen
I'm only a phone call away
You'll find comfort in the memories
That I'll relay
Those were the days
Those were the days we'll say
Those were the days
Those were the days we'll say
Those were the days

Now listen carefully I need you to live by these words
Let it circulate through your veins
Head up, chest out now

And after all this important guy
I think its finally my turn to give you some important advice
Now you're not scared but you will be when you're lonely
And I'll be there in a blink of an eye
Any time of the night when you need some conversation
I'm you're main man

And you know you can always count on me to be awake at 3
And I'll probably be thinking about the same old shit that you see
And if it wasn't for this gentle bear I don't think I'd be here
I can barely speak through tears 'cause when I'm low who can lift me?

Oh I don't know upon a guess
I say he's got a gift
'Cause he can always shift time and make it swift
Turn a heart ache into milkshake,
Turn a bad taste into a sweet taste

That's why I don't want you to go, but I know you have to

If you're losing sleep in Aberdeen
I'm only a phone call away
You'll find comfort in the memories
That I'll relay
Those were the days
Those were the days we'll say
Those were the days
Those were the days we'll say
Those were the days

Even though you've got a million best friends
I don't want the label I just want your presence
And these words on my wrist will apply till the end,

I see you as a brother just as much as a best friend
So I will fight the deeper urge to say "Come home"
'Cause I know you have to go, I know you have to go

And when you cross those Scottish borders
Mark my words they'll be locking up their daughters
And they'll all be singing, they'll all be singing

Oh oh oh my god oh oh it's Michael Dawson [x12]

If you're losing sleep in Aberdeen, I'm only a phone call away
We'll find comfort in the memories, that I'll relay
Those were the days
Those were the days we'll say
Those were the days
Those were the days we'll say
Those were the days
Those were the days we'll say
Those were the days

    After reading your book James , crying , laughing but most of all understanding your dream. I had to search these old tracks out .. You are and will always be truly talented . As a granny , I’ll be in every audience possible from now till my dying day .
    Good old Dawson , you saved his soul so many times .. thank god you did . 🙏🏻

    Cath Crow

    Isn't he something special? I am a Grandma from the USA and I am as proud of him as if he were one of my own grandkids.

  5. The Passionate Patriot

    Most important artist of my lifetime. And at 55, spending my entire life in the music biz there has been, I must admit, a few before him but I can safely and honestly say there will be none after. And I must agree with Rebecca Edwards and Stephie Hope, it is these songs that have cemented his space in the #1spot for me. You are The King! And I must say I hope I don't know or will ever, the person who felt it deserving and necessary for the one and only dislike for this video. You probably hate your mother and boil cats alive!!!

    MusicSoulKing

    The Passionate Patriot Absolutely agree. This track has always had a place in my heart.

    Doux kate

    I understand. James is incredibly talented. I've listened to all of his music over and over since the day I saw him on X factor in 2012. I feel so lucky to have his music in my life.

  6. Jerry King

    James should be headlining Glastonbury with his hits & tracks like this. Songs from my bedroom or JAProject. 2 yrs time, perfect.

  7. Rebecca Edwards

    These old songs went missing for ages I'm so glad I've found them again and can share them with your newest fans on Twitter etc. Xxxxx

    Stephie Hope

    Aren't they just Wonderful! These are some of my Most Favorite JA songs!

  8. WoodPaneling

    "Your loosing"? REALLY?

    Okay, you're not going to understand how wrong that is so I'll break it down.

    You are trying to say "you are losing" ("loosing" is not a word.)

    "You're Losing" Sleep in Aberdeen. Ahhh, much better.

  9. MusicSoulKing
