A song about how it feels to move from Paisley to live in London for the first time.
Cross the border,
Into the big bad world
Where it takes you 'bout an hour
Just to cross the road

Baby let's get closer, tonight
Grant my last request and just let me hold you, don't shrug your shoulders
Paolo is a recent discovery for me. I heard one of his songs awhile back on the closing credits of a tv program and I made a mental note to do an Itunes search and download some of his songs, but I forgot all about it, until I read a read a comment referring to him.
I FINALLY got this kid's cd. First let me say he's gorgeous. Moving on.
When he first came on my bf & I were like, "Is that a dude or a chick?" lol Then he started to sing & I was, like, barfing in my cup. My bf was disgusted. Then I kept listening. And I FELL...

A live recording of Paolo Nutini singing Dougie MacLean's "Caledonia". A song about Scotand.
I don't know if you can see,
The changes that have come over me
These last few days I've been afraid,
That I might drift away
So I've been telling old stories,
I have a few songs that I listen to in the morning while getting ready for work. Upbeat stuff to get my day going in a good direction. No matter what other songs I add or subtract, that one stays in the line up.
I saw a review in a magazine about Paolo's CD Sunny Side Up. Red it, parked it onaware. Then my husband had the brilliant idea to download his CD(he also red the review) and he set the song Candy for his alarm clock... so I woke up every day hearing the sweet tunes. Every day I...
...who seems to truly enjoy the music he plays on stage. He seems to be just having fun, doing his own thing. I think that is what I like most. I think a lot of today's artists try too hard, with the image, the dance moves etc etc. All that is cool...
"I was hoping that here on EP I'd find angels to meet! A room full of all my friends; dancing round & round!"
Thus far I'd have to say my NewShoes have brought me good luck! Met alot of angels on here. If I haven't met you yet, say hello...
