about

James Peel Dallas, Texas

Resting between the sunny writing of McCartney and The Beach Boys and the reflective songs of Ryan Adams or Wilco, James Peel occupies his own sonic space. His strong sense of melody and arrangement draw out the content of his hopeful lyrics. You'll be compelled to whistle and hum along. ... more

Track Name: Nothin' Better (Feat. Chris Munselle)
Windows down, music loud,
Tapping on the steering wheel.
You and me singin' harmony
In tune with how I feel

Sky above is clear and all I know,
It can't better than this,
There's nothing's better than this.

Right here in this moment,
just a man who loves his woman
Don't matter where we're going
We're not slowin' down.

It can't get better than this,
There's nothing better than this.

Holdin' hands while our favorite band
sings out on my stereo,
This simple scene feels like a dream,
What a sweet scenario.

The road ahead is clear and all I know,
It can't get better than this,
There's nothing better than this.

Right here in this moment,
just a man who loves his woman
Don't matter where we're going
We're not slowin' down.

It can't get better than this,
There's nothing better than this.
Track Name: Can I Come Home?
I never thought it would be me,
Stumbling through the streets; too much to drink.
Alone at half past three,
I'm headed home, headed home from the brink.

I never thought it would be me,
Lying through my teeth about where I been,
I've been stumblin' through the streets,
But I'm headed home, headed home from the brink.

I wanna go home,
Can I come home?
I wanna go home.

Why won't the jailer set me free?
Hadn't Jesus paid for all my transgressions?
I think the truth is that cling,
To the this cold, and dark and comfortable depression.

I wanna go home,
Can I come home?
I wanna go home.

Let me come home.
Track Name: Deep Down, I Know
I’m feeling paper-thin these days,
I can’t explain.
My mind and my heart can’t come to terms,
They won’t stop fighting.

Deep down, I know the truth.

The morning is coming, and all of my tears will be dried.
No mourning, no crying, no pain and no more night.
Deep down, I know the truth.

I’m hearing thin-skinned lies these days,
About my pain.
“Your mind and your heart are too far gone,
it’s not worth fighting.”

But deep down, I know the truth.

The morning is coming, and all of my tears will be dried.
No mourning, no crying, no pain and no more night.
Deep down, I know the truth.
Track Name: Marry Me! (Feat. Paige Peel)
I just got done speaking with your father,
About meetin’ you down at the alter.
In front of God and all our friends,
Our familes will all be there,
We’ll make our vows. We’ll say I do.

Cause I just can’t wait, I just can’t wait,
To spend the rest of my life with you

I just got back from a trip to the jeweler,
You couldn’t measure this smile with a ruler.
So, I’m down on one knee darlin’ please,
Oh won’t you, won’t you marry me,
Ooooo marry me!

Cause I just can’t wait, I just can’t wait,
To spend the rest of my life with you.
Track Name: Stuck in the Past
I feel stuck in the past like a war torn veteran.
These nightmares of us gone wrong keep recurring,
And they don’t make a cast for this type of injury.
I feel stuck in the past and I need reassuring,

That I’m not crazy for still loving you,
That I’m not mad for hoping there’s a chance.

I get lost in the words like a lonely librarian.
All these books on love can’t help with the burning,
And they don’t make a cast for this type of injury.
I get lost in the words and I need reassuring,

That I’m not crazy for still loving you, still,
That I’m not mad for hoping there’s a chance.

I feel stuck in the past like a war torn veteran.
I feel stuck in the past and I need reassuring,
Track Name: Learning You
Give it time, It’s a process.
I’ll never be done finding you out.
But so far I know you feel beautiful in a dress
And sometimes I gotta show you off, get you out on the town.

Give it time, I’m learning you.

Give it time, can't you tell I’m making some progress,
But just when I think I’ve got you pinned,
You turn a date into I night in wearing sweats
And I’m back at the start to figure you out.

Give it time, I’m learning you.

Give it time, I should probably confess,
That actually I count on being amazed.
You never fail to impress,
You're so complex, but I keep trying nevertheless.

Give it time, I’m learning you.
Track Name: Watch it Burn
I struck a match to watch it burn,
Till the flame found my finger.
I heard the message from the pain,
“Don’t you ever do that again.”

The next time I lit a match,
Before I even thought, I’d blown it out.
I made a habit of my doubt,
Cursing my every move now.

Our lives are singed around the edges no doubt,
But baby please don’t let the love burn out.

Stand with my back against the wind,
And wrap my hands around the flame,
Ignore that message from my brain
Forget that memory of the pain.

Our lives are singed around the edges no doubt,
But baby please don’t let the love burn out.
Our lives are singed around the edges no doubt,
But baby please don’t let the love burn down.
Track Name: Sleep Little One
Sleep little one. Close your eyes. Mommy and Daddy are close by.
Sleep little one. Don’t you cry. The God who made you is by your side

The God who made the whole wide world is singing over you.
The God who made the whole wide world has got you in his arms.
He loves you, he loves you.

Sweet little one, rest your head. You’ve got growing and learning ahead of you.
Sweet little one, don’t forget , Mommy and Daddy will always love you.

The God who made the whole wide world is singing over you.
The God who made the whole wide world has got you in his arms.
He loves you, he loves you.

Even when you’re sad,
Even when you’re bad,
Even when you run away from grace, try to hide your face
He’ll we be waiting there with his arms wide open.

He loves you, he loves you, he’ll always love you.

Sleep little one.
Sleep little one.
