about

A meaningful collaboration, ‘No Time For Goodbyes’ is the lead single from Fisky's recently released debut album ‘Ten years' which received positive reviews from the industry and his peers alike. The song is inspired by losing someone close without having the chance to say goodbye. Fisky’s raw emotion and lyrical incisiveness are perfectly complimented by Christen Kwame’s calming yet powerful vocals, setting the tone for this emotive track.

The EP also features an exclusive remix from Essex based beat maker 'Charles Edison' and an extended version of the song called 'The Lost Verse' which includes an intro, fourth verse, and outro.

Track Name: No Time For Goodbyes ft. Christen Kwame
You had a picture in the hallway, that said, the more you moan, the longer god lets you live, I guess you gave it your best shot, I miss you dad, we all do, this songs for you...

It happened after the premier of circle of revenge
It wouldn't be long till I'm back going in circles with my pen
My phone rang, caller ID was Dad home
But when I picked up, my Dad wasn't on the other end of the phone
It came flooding back the guilt of not being there again
On the way home a friend told me I'm not to blame
He won't sit back and watch me go through that again
We both lost our fathers, both lost our mothers
But out of all the loss, we both gained a brother
We gotta live for today cos we ain't promised tomorrow
So, Simon Ruthy Alison Anna Jeanie Brenda and Len
Let's stay closer, I want my family back, he's so young
Phoenix won't understand what's going on when the time comes
When he asks where Granddad Strawberry's has gone
I promise he's in a better place now with Nathan and Mum
No time for goodbyes just another sad song

The road is long, the battle keeps going
But this will be the hardest fight
I'm crying underneath
My tears they ain't showing
Never had the time to say goodbye

Dear God, I got some questions,
If you exist and love us so much
Why act like an absent parent and never get in touch?
That book was written by man, so is religion made up?
That may offend some but I'm sick of holding my tongue
It offends me I'm expected to believe in something so far fetched
I'm trying but I got about a half a fuck to give left
If you're supposed to be everywhere why I can't see you anywhere?
You show no empathy so from me there's no apology
Why not take me? Why would I believe in something I can't see?
I'll wait for you to get back to me, maybe my dreams
Maybe you`ll leave me a message on my answering machine
Or maybe I'll be better off talking to a can of baked beans
There's got to be a heaven cos 2012 was hell
Nothing but heartache and pain, well I'm still standing pal
I'll take comfort in the fact he passed in his sleep, closed eyes
Someone stole our time no time for goodbyes

The battles long I keep on going
I keep on going
This will be the hardest fight
This will be the hardest fight
I'm crying tears but they ain't showing
They ain't showing
There's no time to say goodbye
There's no time to say goodbye

People forget a luxury I ain't got to handle this
I'm left with a sadness only my pen can address
I'm told I'll never walk alone but I can't run with the crowd
As for the drugs and alcohol it's the Curtain Call time to take a bow
Out - I'm trying to walk away but it's strange
Cos they've numbed my pain for over half a my days
The fire keeps burning the world keeps turning but I've had enough
Some days I wish it would just stop - and let me off
They say how I handled its inspired, Fisky seems fine
But inside Fisky's dying take a look in his eyes
I gotta let it slide cos big boys don't cry
What kind of fucking genius came up with that line...
I don't need a councillor to tell me I might be depressed
My parents were the best never thought I'd be parent less
Holidays are the hardest I'd rather give Christmas a miss
But if it taught me one thing it's that the present is a gift (we gotta live for it)

The battles long I keep on going
I keep on going
This will be the hardest fight
This will be the hardest fight
I'm crying tears but they ain't showing
They ain't showing
There's no time to say goodbye
There's no time to say goodbye
