The Facts  by Son Roberts on Three’s a Charm

Sarah Thawer on kit
Charles Collymore on bass
Brett McMillan on guitar
Alan Zemaitis on piano

I’m on vocals and harmonica

“The Facts” is based on my fundamental beliefs in life and I wrote it as much for my kids as anybody else … including myself!
Brett created a beautifully haunting track with Alan Zemaitis, in particular, on piano adding a touching and fragile piano track that cuts through in parts its like delicate glass breaking, in others its a clarion bell demanding attention…  as for the lyrics its just a fact that life can be heartbreaking when you face its truths, but it can be liberating at the same time.

Lyrics

The Facts
(Wayne S. Roberts, John Crosbie,
Brett MacMillan, Alan Zimaitis,
Sergio Faluotico)

Verse

No god lookin’ down on me.

No heaven or hell I’ll see.

There’s no deity.

All those clocks keep turnin’ around.

Whole world tryin’ to hold you down.

Don’t ask for pity.

Bridge

Ain’t no war gonna be the last.

No future’s gonna fix the past.

Well, it’s a cryin’ shame.

The only chance you got to take,

the rules you gonna break

to stake your claim.

Chorus

You’ve got to know your soul.

You need to count the cost
and pay the toll.

You need to live for now … baby,

figure the why, you’ll figure the how.

Verse

Everything gonna up and end,

start all over again.

Don’t you worry.

But all that life you have to live,

The love that you need to give,

Please, hurry, hurry.

Bridge

‘Cuz love is the only way.

Save the living, save the day.

Save yourself.

It’s so tender and it’s so frail

the chance that it might fail.

Cry for help!

Chorus

You’ve got to know your soul.

You need to count the cost
and pay the toll.

You need to live for now,

figure the why, you’ll figure the how.

Verse

Walk away from all those lies.

Find your bluest sky,

Catch that light.

Be afraid you ain’t scared enough.

Double down and call their bluff.

But do what’s right.

Bridge

‘Cuz love is the only way.

Save the living, save the day.

Save somebody else!

It’s so tender and so frail

the chance that it might fail.

Cry for help!

Verse
All the passion, all the rage,
It’s time to take the stage,
Play your part.
Every moment, every touch,
One kiss, one too much,
Breaks your heart.
