Thomas A stellar, emotional track by the G-Man. Excellent performance and production on a killer tune with a very sharp hook...which I've swallowed...way down deep....and it's stuck... Damn that hurts. Great work homie!

julesneonfawkes Eagle 1, this is tower. This debut single from Waller is astounding. Beautiful vocals, beautiful production, guitar on afterburners, clear synth skies. Earworm for sure.

Pretty Glass Folk The G man is back, the Strike Eagle has landed. Production A*, Guitar solo A*. Correct me if I'm wrong but this is the first time we've heard Graham up front singing his heart out, and my life is all the better for it. Support up and coming synthwave and buy this track, it's a belter!

damienjackson Magnificent debut track from Strike Eagle here. More of the same flawless production we've come to expect from the G-Man. Beautifully crafted with wonderful story board lyrics all sung with a tenderness and touching hint of fragility, creating a sense of vulnerability and exposure just in time for the sensational guitar work to sweep us back up again for a glorious finale you won't want to end.

about

The debut single from Strike Eagle "It's Always Been You".
A story of unrequited love inspired by the movie "Love Actually"

lyrics

As I walk into your doorway
Butterflies are going wild
I can’t believe I’m here
But I’ve got to tell you now

I’ll knock upon your door
And I’ll wait for your sweet face
Your smile either lights me up
Or makes me ache for days

I need to tell you
Then I'll be gone

Only You
Have made me love this hard before
Made me yearn, want and ache for more
But you’re with somebody else
And I’ll have to walk away

I just want you to be happy
Even if you can't be with me
My wasted heart will always love you
Cos it’s always been you

So, there is my confession
It’s out there for you now
I love you but I’m learning
How to walk away somehow

I know you’re already happy
And I feel a fool right now
I just couldn’t fight the feeling
That my heart wants to allow

I just needed to tell you
And now I’m gone

Only You
Have made me love this hard before
Made me yearn, want and ache for more
But you’re with somebody else
And I’ll have to walk away

I just want you to be happy
Even if you can't be with me
My wasted heart will always love you
Cos it’s always been you

Only You
Have made me love this hard before
Made me yearn, want and ache for more
But you’re with somebody else
And I’ll have to walk away

I just want you to be happy
Even if you can't be with me
My wasted heart will always love you
Cos it’s only you
That’s made me love this hard before
Made me yearn, want and ache for more
But you’re with somebody else
And I’ll have to walk away

I just want you to be happy
Even if you can't be with me
My wasted heart will always love you
Cos it’s always been you
