Washington Parks

I’m from a sleepy town
Where the people get me down
So I drink and I smoke
Until I hit the ground

I love the way you walk
When you’re walking next to me
In the American sun
Shining so effervescently

You had just one chance
To blow me away and you blew me away
The stars fall down like rain
When I see you again
Will I see you again?

My body is at war
A war I cannot win
But I’m the happiest
I’ve ever been

You had just one chance
To blow me away and you blew me away
The stars fall down like rain
When I see you again
Will I see you again?

You had just one chance
To blow me away and you blew me away
The stars fall down like rain
When I see you again
Will I see you again?

Song Notes

Tim - “We recently recorded a cover of “Washington Parks” at Emmy’s house and finished it at Atomic Heart Studios. I’d heard about Robert’s project from Emmy and I helped out with recording her version. Robert has Multiple Sclerosis and has been asking bands to record cover versions of his song to raise awareness for MS and raise money for the Multiple Sclerosis Society. I think it’s a beautiful song and a powerful way of using music to fight his disease and also help people.”

Emmy - “I have just recorded a song with Tim Wheeler for the MS Society. The song is called “Washington Parks” and it was written by Robert Manning. Robert is the word “awesome”. He writes a really beautiful blog about his family life and the pain of MS treatment, and also came up with the idea to get people to record his song for charity. We recorded the song in my living room in London and in the Atomic Heart studios in New York. Tim produced it and it was kindly mixed by Claudius Mittendorfer. Euan Hinshelwood played guitar on it.”
