about

“Jason Kerrison seems to not only to have performed this music, but he has inhaled it in spirit and substance. Up until today, I was completely ignorant of anything Jason Kerrison had done before. So I came to this track, free from anything other than a desire to not waste my time. I wasn’t disappointed. The music is absolutely beautiful, the lyrics are well-written, and the song hasn’t left my speakers in several days. That’s rare for me!”
— Rick Jamm, Jamsphere - The Independent Music Magazine

“Kerrison has a strong, earthy voice that manages to be commercial without being generic, and the same thing could be said about the whole song, which has been produced to perfection. Though it is a solo release, there is some accomplished musicianship backing him up, and the overall sound is not too dissimilar to one of New Zealand’s finest exports, Crowded House. (7.8 out of 10)”
— Alex Faulkner, THE FAULKNER REVIEW

“..a terrific big production release which rings with sonic sheen and sincerity. *****”
— Russell Baillie, NZ Herald

"Kerrison is slow to categorise himself and appears open to suggestions. He finds an idea and floats it, unwilling to let it define him"
— MICHELLE ROBINSON, Sunday Star Times

Track Name: Jason Kerrison - On My Own
Are you sure we're better off alone?
'cause I can barely breathe without you now
I left you crying with no where to go
Now I need you like nothing I've ever known

Why did it take a whole lifetime for me to see
That wouldn't grow up easily?

Better face these demons on my own
Before these old flames cause more sorrow

On my own
On my own
On my own
On my own

I'm miserable without you now
I can barely live with myself
If I can't keep you like a gentleman should
Tonight I'll burn this whole place down

Seems I should keep my mouth shut
Cause I hurt everything when I open up

Better face this mountain on my own
Before these rocks and stones leave us broken

On my own
On my own
On my own
On my own

Space and time crawl around us
Oh grace and lifetimes or circling
reveal and tell
I better face myself
Alone
Alone

On My Own
On My Own
On My Own
Track Name: I Don't Care What They Think
I hit the cinema's last night
Before I poured myself a drink
I bid the bella love good night
And now I can't sleep.

I 'm gonna have myself a fun time
cause as far as I can see
I'm chilin' with gelignite
I could go off at anything

And we could do it at yours or mine
Just follow your gut instinct
yeah we could do it at yours or mine
I don't care what they think

I don't care what they think
I don't care what they think
I don't care what they think
I don't care what they think

It feels like election year I hate this choose left or right.
RIght or wrong I couldn't be bothered to decide
We'd rather hit play on love songs by candle light
and fall asleep in a heap by the fireside

And we could do it at yours or mine
Just follow your gut instinct
yeah we could do it at yours or mine
I don't care what they think

I don't care what they think
I don't care what they think
I don't care what they think
I don't care what they think

I hold you like a promise
if you really want me to be honest

And we could do it at yours or mine
Just follow your gut instinct
yeah we could do it at yours or mine
I don't care what they think

I don't care what they think
I don't care what they think
I don't care what they think
I don't care what they think
Track Name: Jason Kerrison - After You
Now you see me. Now you don't.
We used to move in the same circles but now you don't come close
Once you believe me. Now you don't
The writings on the wall with one tiny thought
Go on, if you want.

No I'm not gone completely. I more like a ghost.
I used to run but now I can't so I won't
You talk about me like I'm not moving on.
Like I'm some junky trying to get somewhere close

You can go. If you want
But I'm not gonna run after you
You can go. If you want
But I'm not gonna run after you

Tried to deceive me. Get in my head
My heads already broken. My hearts already dead
I've been abandoned by my senses.
I don't know where this is. I've never felt like I should cease and desist.
Yeah I might smoke too much
I might drink too much
Drink to my veins are alcohol, until my lungs are toast
But now I can't feel a thing
comfortable comatose,
comfortable comatose

You can go. If you want
But I'm not gonna run after you
You can go. If you want
But I'm not gonna run after you

Now you see me. Now you don't.
We used to move in the same circles but now you don't come close
Once you believe me. Now you don't
The writings on the wall with one tiny thought
Go on, if you want.
Track Name: You Want Me As Me
You cover me with
Love and kisses
I wouldn't miss this if someone gave me the world
It would never be enough girl
Oh you're so user friendly like a nuclear family dissolving my ego
I'll be drinking from your loveliness
'til I fill up my cup.

I think I've finally worked it out
You want me as me

So share and make more moments with me my lady
Some call me crazy but I call it as I see
And its something I need

I think I've finally worked it out
I don't need to be anyone else
I think I've finally worked it out
You want me as me

We've had some good times so far makin out in your car
You called for me release and to my humble relief
Oh you waited for me

I think I've finally worked it out
I don't need to be anyone else
I think I've finally worked it out
You want me as me
Track Name: Good Love Gone Bad
A good love gone bad
A greater love had no man
You played the good cop I played the bad
This is getting exhausting
And the worst thing
You never really cared for what you had

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

I can't complain if I feel no pain least of all the suffering when it's raining
So let it all come down like a universal clown
do we only sit around the we're laughing?

Ha ha ha
Are we laughing?
Ha ha ha
Are we laughing?

We would only play around for fun.
Now it feels like the funs done hon done. Done.

Do do do do

A good love gone bad
A greater love had no man
You played the good cop I played the bad

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
