 “END OF THE ROAD”(LEAVING ON THAT TRAIN) Raleigh, NC 10/10/2013 —The songs: “Can’t Feel Your Heartbeat, Spirits In The Sun and End Of The Road” started coming together back in March of 2013 . I was driving through the Virginia swamps and headed for North Carolina.

The road was long and I had plenty of time to play a collection of cd’s from the late 60’s, 70’s and 80’s which I’m sure, at least in part, inspired me to write. The reason for my travel was to inspect a new home that I was in the process of buying in Raleigh. I was by myself in a new, but strange place trying to find my way around. At some point, I started to flood with emotions and then the tears began to fall.

The cool shallow waters of reality started to rise with the coming tide and settled when I began to think about the miles that I had put behind me, how far I really was from home and the life I had known. There were people and relationships that I had to let go. “Can’t Feel Your Heartbeat” is about this idea of stepping back, letting go, moving on and being torn between two different worlds in the hope that maybe, the one person someone really loves will show some kind of sign or give the other some reason to hold back or reconsider their decision to move forward without them. This song has a groove, back beat and melody that make for an interesting contrast with regard to theme, metaphor and subject matter. Furthermore, this song will be included with eight other tracks for debut album: Will Francis-“Behind The Personas.”

Through the use of imagery, faces, characters and personas, this album presents the surface level world we all live in. Underneath, is the music. This is the real, genuine, honest punch in the gut stuff that people can relate to. “Spirits In The Sun” is this song about the paradox, duplicity and the dark side of paradise . Having fun, good times, living near the surf around beautiful women becomes this booze induced reality of illusions; being lost, far away from home, waiting for the ship of opportunity to come in, becoming a beach dweller, being alone and not realizing that the world is passing by. Stuck with The Spirits In The Sun.

 “End Of The Road” conveys this idea or search for truth between two people in a relationship. One or both, have changed, evolved and are headed down divergent paths. For so long, they continue on and don’t communicate. They go from being lovers, to being more like friends and roommates that are engaged in a more symbiotic relationship that is based on circumstance and necessity . When the human need for closeness, intimacy and more than just a friend and roommate creeps in, somebody gets honest and wants more. They question their compatibility, chemistry and the elements necessary for the long term or committed relationship. The question is, have they both, come to the End Of Their Road? "I Closed My Eyes" comes from a dream state or unconscious reality while sleeping. A woman keeps appearing in these dreams.

The backdrop or scenery is always different, unfamiliar and even strange at times. However, in every still that the conscious mind can remember upon waking, the same woman is always close and looking into the eyes of the dreamer. This song has a way of drawing listeners back into their own dreams and a strange world that may exist within the far reach of deep sleep. Will Francis is a songwriter from Raleigh, NC.
