lyrics

I must have missed my only chance
In that mirrored smoke and that shadow dance
She wants me badly and I can't resist
Coz i'm sinful gladly and only this

She took my heart without my will
These worlds apart grew stronger still
I can't get my words right, I can't find my tune
And before too long I know I'll speak too soon

A sucker for love and a fool in the night
With nothing but hope and a smile that's off white
I pretend to be good to calm the nerves
Forever to please with the greatest of ease
The strength of the earth as i roll up my sleeves
Got to manifest, no scams, no rest
Till it's clear like the songs that we all know best
She wants me badly and I can't resist
I'm sinful gladly like the dreams we missed

Those eyes don't lie and those lips don't miss
Should thunder crack, I'll find your kiss
Coz I need it badly, say you'll be mine
I'm sinful gladly all of the time
These tangled words refuse to glow
You can't take a bite from the hands you don't know
I can't get my words right, I can't find my tune
And before too long I know I'll speak too soon

Coz i'm sinful gladly all of the time

William the Conqueror Newquay, UK

It takes patience to trawl the gig circuit for four years before committing anything to record or even telling anyone about it but William The Conqueror is old school like that... home grown and honest.

It's raw guitars, roomy drums, honky pianos and scuffed bluesy vocals cutting through the bullshit with wit and wisdom.
