...

A special thank you to my wonderful wife and soulmate, Lorna. My friends and family back home in Scotland. Miss you all. My lifelong best friend Alan and his lovely family. Ollie Wride for officially joining the project and taking it to the next level. Clive Farrington, the original founder, lead singer and songwriter for ‘When In Rome’ for being an incredible guest collaboration and a great guy. I had an amazing time recording with you in LA. Thanks also to my friends in the retrowave scene and to everyone who takes the time to send me messages and emails. I appreciate them all very much. An extra special thank you to Apple and my friends in Cupertino, California for changing my life four years ago.

Atlas is entirely self-released, self-promoted and self-funded. Thank you so much for supporting independent music.

Track Name: Running In The Night (feat. Ollie Wride)
I used to be the one
I used to be your getaway dreamer
I couldn’t get enough
Thinking that we would last forever
Don’t know what you’re thinking of
Slipping further out of reach
To the edge of town we could go
Away from all the world to see

You were wild trying to set yourself free
I didn’t see the signs right in front of me

Oh, I’m running in the night so soon
I’ve got nothing left to lose
I’m leaving it all behind, running in the night with you
I won’t let you get away again
We can see it through to the end
But whatever we do
I'm running in the night with you

I used to be the one
I used to be your place to land
Under the shadows
Into the palm of my hand
You’re always changing the situation
Just when we found paradise
You’re always shutting down my conversation
I can never read your mind

Oh, I’m running in the night so soon
I’ve got nothing left to lose
I’m leaving it all behind, running in the night with you
I won’t let you get away again
We can see it through to the end
But whatever we do
I'm running in the night with you

Ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh
Running with the night
Ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh
I’m Running with the night

I used to be the one
I used to be your getaway dreamer
I couldn’t get enough
Thinking that we would last forever

Chorus repeat x 2
Track Name: Let's Talk (feat. Timecop1983 & Josh Dally)
So lets talk
Talk all night long
But this time
Say what should be said
And I know its hard
But this for the best
Now its time
That we go separate ways

So tonight

Lets just dance
You and I can dance
Lets just dance
This is our last chance

For a while
You have built up walls
And I don’t know why
But I can’t brake them down

And all we ever seem to do is shout
But I never know what it’s about
So lets turn the lights down low
Its alright I know you like it slow

So tonight

Lets just dance
You and I can dance
Lets just dance
This is our last chance

Lets just dance
You and I can dance
Lets just dance
This is our last chance

So tonight yeah lets dance
Track Name: Wild Ones (feat. Ollie Wride)
Standing on a skyline
Watching all the cars go
Sleeping in the daylight
You’re losing all control
I can’t stand to see it
Watching you fall apart
I never wanted to be
Anything you are

I bet you think you’re pretty dangerous
Burning down the walls
Breaking all the laws, yeah?
Has there ever been a time for us?
I guess that I’ll never tell

Wild ones, we’re wild ones
Oh oh we don’t care what you think of us now
Wild ones, we’re wild ones
Oh Oh, we don’t keep ourselves to the ground

Running through the back streets
Like the videos on TV
It was just another blowout
That we forgot to leave

I bet you think you’re pretty dangerous
Burning down the walls
Breaking all the laws, yeah?
Has there ever been a time for us?
I guess that I’ll never tell

Wild ones, we’re wild ones
Oh oh we don’t care what you think of us now
Wild ones, we’re wild ones
Oh Oh, we don’t keep ourselves to the ground

I hear your heart tremble like a storm
In the cold of night
You must be keeping something from the world
See, I’m holding to the edges of the light you leave behind
I love that you’re a wild one
Show me you’re a wild one, tonight

Chorus repeat
Track Name: Don't Want To Change Your Mind (feat. Ollie Wride)
It’s not through lack of feeling
That my heads against the wall
Convince me that I’m dreaming
and you’re waiting by my door

I know that I’ve been chasing my tail now
I’ve been dragging us both down to our knees
If you want to escape just say now
You always knew what was good for me

Don’t want to change
Don’t want to change your mind
Don’t want to change
Don’t want to change your mind

I’m not looking for half answers
To gain a sense of this
Just let me lose my head for a while
Then, I’ll be whatever you insist

I know that I’ve been chasing my tail now
I’ve been dragging us both down to our knees
If you want to escape just say now
You always knew what was good for me

Don’t want to change
Don’t want to change your mind
Don’t want to change
Don’t want to change your mind

I’ve let all my defences run
Talked every dream that we had dry
And as I reach the no return
You pull me back and everythings right

Don’t want to change
Don’t want to change your mind
Don’t want to change
Don’t want to change your mind
Track Name: Goodbye (feat. Clive Farrington)
As summer fades away
Lost in a cloudless haze
Just hold me and touch a wave
There’s no more we need to say

Yet I don’t want to say goodbye
And I don’t want to see you cry

And now it’s too late to say goodbye
Now I love you
And now it’s too late to say goodbye
It’s not over

We’re caught in a moment
Lost in a summer breeze
Moving in circles
As light flickers on the sea

Now I don’t want to say goodbye
And I don’t want to see you cry

And now it’s too late to say goodbye
Now I love you
And now it’s too late to say goodbye
It’s not over
And now it’s too late to say goodbye
Ohh na na ohh
I know it’s too late to say goodbye
Now we’re forever
