A Quiet Revolution: Day After Day EP by John Jenkins and the James Street Band
‘Day After Day’ is the latest release from the prolific Liverpool musician John Jenkins. Five powerful songs of reflection, observation and insight with an unerring focus on the modern world. These songs lay bare the flaws, problems and injustices of life in the current political climate while reflecting on nostalgia, personal goals and living well. A ‘Design for Life’ if you will. Hard hitting but softly spoken; a gentle call for common sense and humanity.
There are stories and characters in these songs. Two-line snapshots that economically paint pictures worthy of Paul McCartney. Broad brush strokes that stir the imagination. The EP showcases a maturity both lyrically and instrumentally. Different musical styles combine to produce a cohesive whole. This is both personal and political. There is sadness in this work tempered by optimism and faith in the future. This is a soundtrack for our times. Sing along.

Lyrics

Be careful for what you wish for

Is that the Girl that you wanted to be?
Sunday papers - No Privacy
And it can fall fall apart so easily
Is he the guy that you look up to?
Because he looks so flash and wears a brand new suit
And it’s so so wrong don’t you know?

Be Careful for what you wish for,
Be careful for what you say
Sometimes the grass is never quite so green
Be careful for what you wish for
Be careful for what you say
You just might get your own way

Is that the job that took away your pride?
Promised you everything but left you high and dry
And it’s so so wrong as you know

In a world that’s constantly changing,
when times moves so fast
And you know fashions they just never ever last
And you hoped for something special
There was something you forgot to say
And that door has closed or is locked or even chained
and it won’t open no matter what you say
no matter what you say

Be careful for what you wish for
Be careful for what you say
You just might get your own way

Be careful for what you wish for

Is that the Girl that you wanted to be?
Sunday papers - No Privacy
And it can fall fall apart so easily
Is he the guy that you look up to?
Because he looks so flash and wears a brand new suit
And it’s so so wrong don’t you know?

Be Careful for what you wish for,
Be careful for what you say
Sometimes the grass is never quite so green
Be careful for what you wish for
Be careful for what you say
You just might get your own way

Is that the job that took away your pride?
Promised you everything but left you high and dry
And it’s so so wrong as you know

In a world that’s constantly changing,
when times moves so fast
And you know fashions they just never ever last
And you hoped for something special
There was something you forgot to say
And that door has closed or is locked or even chained
and it won’t open no matter what you say
no matter what you say

Be careful for what you wish for
Be careful for what you say
You just might get your own way



Be careful for what you wish for

Is that the Girl that you wanted to be?
Sunday papers - No Privacy
And it can fall fall apart so easily
Is he the guy that you look up to?
Because he looks so flash and wears a brand new suit
And it’s so so wrong don’t you know?

Be Careful for what you wish for,
Be careful for what you say
Sometimes the grass is never quite so green
Be careful for what you wish for
Be careful for what you say
You just might get your own way

Is that the job that took away your pride?
Promised you everything but left you high and dry
And it’s so so wrong as you know

In a world that’s constantly changing,
when times moves so fast
And you know fashions they just never ever last
And you hoped for something special
There was something you forgot to say
And that door has closed or is locked or even chained
and it won’t open no matter what you say
no matter what you say

Be careful for what you wish for
Be careful for what you say
You just might get your own way
