This is from my album 'Who Is Thom Topham' and is the only track that is properly mastered (and can't you tell the difference eh?) so far. Thank you Jean-Raphael Dedieu, who will be mastering all the other tracks as soon as he can find a window in his crowded diary!
This is featured in 'My Unplanned Obsolescence', the multimedia Thom Topham autoBLOGography which you can find at: http://www.thomtopham.wordpress.com/about
The song was written by my good friend Steve Swindells and recorded in 2009 and everything is programmed, played, sung (apart from some help from my favourite ex 'Luther' on the backing vocals on this track) and produced by myself, apart from the beautiful lead guitar, which was played by the very talented and versatile Mr Jerry Richards.

You Go By
I will not try to admit defeat, or walk on by the other side of the street
dragging my feet while you go by, while your clock ticks and every moment in my heart in my begins to stick in my mind - you go by.
Some people thrive on pressure, if it aint there then they invent it
and others live more leisurely, it's their world and how they present it.
You go by, you never had to try, 'cos you know everyone and everything
and always knew which bells to ring... like mine.
Don't be so fly, no, don't say goodbye 'cos I'll need you in the future.
Call it... time. I wanna call it time, time. I wanna call it - you go by.
Time, time, I wanna call it time. Hey, oh, you go by, you go by.
You go by.
Now listen - I wanna call you sometimes, and no-one's naming names,
but I can't bear too much sunshine, or nights spent playing games.
You go by - like dirty tricks, and every vision in my head begins to click in my mind and you go, you go by.
Hey - you know I wanna call it time, time, time, call it, time, time, time...
You go by, yeah, you... time, I wanna call it, I wanna call it.
Yeah, you go by... you go, you go, you go by.
