(Post edited – each day, a new song was previewed. The preview link was the same every day. I have removed those links as they are now dead. As the band releases videos, I’ll adjust links for specific songs. Your best bet right now is to head on over to ShoesWire.com and buy Ignition. You won’t be disappointed. The guys put a great deal of time and thought into this album and the songs are stellar.)

Shoes, that amazing Power Pop band from Zion, Illinois, has been working on a new album for over a year. It’s titled Ignition and will have an “Extreme Fan” release on July 3rd. Every day, starting on June 18, they are revealing a new song, counting down from Track 15.

Track 14 is In On You, by John Murphy.

IN ON YOU
(John Murphy)

You said you hadn’t heard this talk before
But I thought you knew
You said you couldn’t take it anymore
But I wasn’t through

The friends and all the men you used to know
Have moved on years ago
It happens when you least expect it
To close in on you

You didn’t think you had it left inside
What more could you do
No one really cared if you had lied
You know that now too

The trouble is the worst ain’t come down yet
There’s what you want then there’s what you get
It happens when you least expect it
To close in on you

You wait and see
Try to put your trust in me and leave it be

We tend to overlook the mounting cost
Of all that we wagered and what we’ve lost
It happens when you least expect it
To close in on you

Still hopin’ for the end to your sadness
It’s long overdue
So tell me what’s the meaning of all this
When things come unglued

The trouble is the worst ain’t come down yet
There’s what you want then there’s what you get
It takes you from behind
Don’t let it close in on you

You’ll finally see when you put your trust in me
But you made it harder than it had to be

John: lead/backing vocals, bass, baritone and acoustic guitars, keyboard
Gary: backing vocals, electric guitars (includes lead)
Jeff: backing vocals, electric and acoustic guitars
