From the time of its conception this album was labeled on my computer 'Dan's Remote Album' (me being on Vancouver Island and he in Johannesburg). I sent him a bunch of guide tracks and requested he choose a few and do anything he want with them. He has an amazing studio, access to some of South Africa's finest musicians and a magic touch. It was interesting to me which songs he chose, and by the time I flew over to record the vocals they'd morphed in ways I would never have imagined, and yet they were still the same songs, playable with the original vocal guides. My vocals were mixed right after the musical orgy known as Oppikoppi, and as I rushed from the Stoep to board my flight I told Dan of the backing vocals I was hearing in my head, vocals like....and I mentioned some of the mesmerizing performances I'd seen at the festival. Oh, yes, he said to pretty much any singer I recalled. He knew and had access to them all it seemed. And this EP, six, is the result.

Track Name: Time Will Tell
Time Will Tell
Words&Music: Roger Seldon Cape Town 1988

When I met you it was little more than a game.
Playing to my body-search, you must share the blame.
Disregarding any warning bells,
We did not stop to think, "Where will this all end?"

They were lonely words, we remained the same.
Seeing each other more and more, not thinking of the day.
In the back of our minds we always knew
There would come a time I would have to go.

Time will tell what the Future might be holding.
Hold on to Hope for Fate may be kind.
My heart and soul will face no alteration.
Time is Hope, the Future is Love.

There will come a time when we will meet again.
You may follow or I may return.
History may repeat and then we'll learn
Hope was not in vain, Fate has been our friend.

Time will tell what the Future might be holding.
Hold on to Hope for Fate may be kind.
My heart and soul will face no alteration.
Time is Hope, the Future is …..Love.
Track Name: Hello
HELLO!
Words&Music: Roger Seldon April 2008, Campbell River, BC.

HELLO! Where you come from?
HELLO! Where you go?
HELLO! Where you come from?
Why don’t you stay, stay here for a while?

HELLO! Where you come from?
HELLO! Where you go?
HELLO! Where you come from?
Why don’t you stay, stay here for a while?
We can make you smile. MMmmmmmmm.

HELLO! Where you come from?
HELLO! Where you go?
HELLO! Where you come from?
Why don’t you stay, stay here for a while?

Because it’s to bloody cold
Because it is always rain
And when it’s not rain it’s grey
And when it’s not grey it’s much too WHITE!!

Because it’s to bloody cold
Because it is always rain
And when it’s not rain it’s grey
And when it’s not grey it’s much too WHITE!!

HELLO! Where you come from?
HELLO! Where you go?
HELLO! Where you come from?
Why don’t you stay, stay here for a while?
Track Name: Every Time
Every Time
Words & Music: Roger Seldon Ramsgate June/July 2011

Like great petals in the sky,
My Love, you are sublime.
But then there's those things I say,
And every time I make you cry.

Don't always mean what I say.
Don't always say what I mean.
Some things just come out that way
And every time I make you cry
I just want to die,
Every time.

So many things I want to say.
Why I don't, I don't know.
Something across the way
And I just can't find 
My way through
To show.

Why this heartache for you and I?
All we need is what we have.
You. Me. Blow the rest away.
We should just be flying 
Away
In our love.
Track Name: Love Don't Make Me Cry
Love Don't Make Me Cry
Words&Music: Roger Seldon, CS Alert 1989

Love, don't cry for me
But don't you forget about my
Love, don't be sad.
Don't think of me as gone.

Although my body is far away
My heart’s not spent a day away from
You. Don't cry, don't cry for me.
Think of me beside you.

Love don't make me cry.
Love makes me fly
And if I could I'd fly to be with you.
Love don't make me cry.
Love makes me high,
And when I'm high my soul is with you.

Love, nothing's signed or sealed but
I would like to deliver my
Love to you, when I am through
With the task I have before

Me and you, our hearts must keep.
Keep mine close to yours and
Don't cry, don't cry, don't cry for me.
Think of me beside you.

Soul is with you
Soul is with you
It will guide my body home
Keep the fire
Keep the fire
Keep the fire burning strong.
Track Name: Night Owl
Night Owl
Music & Lyrics: Roger Seldon Ramsgate Jan & June/July 2012

Standing in my doorway
Looking at the mess.
My bed burnt to cinder,
Can't get you out of my head.

Don't know where you came from.
Dropped in out of Hell.
Set alight my whole bedroom
Then watch'd the sky grow pale.

Slow down Sunrise.
Don't part from the sea.
Don't chase my night owl
Away from me.

Even if I never
See you ever again,
This night, burned forever
Into my animal brain.

And if you ever come back
I'd like to know your name.
Cook you eggs for breakfast,
Give back your underwear.

Slow down Sunrise.
Don't part from the sea.
Don't chase my night owl
Away from me.

I know it can never
Ever be the same.
Can't help crazy dreaming,
Catch that sunrise again.

Don't chase my night owl
Away.
Track Name: Light A Fire
Light A Fire
words&music: Roger Seldon Port McNeill, BC circa1995

In the lining of our fears,
With the living of our years,
Where the future has no wares,
Making time without delay.

Light a fire in me,
Light a fire in me,
Light a fire in me and hold me near.

At the hands of our deceit,
In the mourning of defeat,
Pay the useless time away,
Making life within each day.

Light a fire in me,
Light a fire in me,
Light a fire in me and hold me near.

A plastic flower, it will do if it has to
Remind me of how I once kept you.
Feed the force, no remorse, onward we will go
Until our children cry and change the course we know.

Light a fire in me,
Light a fire in me,
Light a fire in me and hold me near.
