"All My Letters" as written by James Patrick Glennie, Lawrence Gott and Timothy Booth....
James in the Green Room with Will Smith and Jay-Z
Now who, who do we pretend we used to be
Summer's up in the shape of a daisy

Fool
We did all this work
So where's our bling?

I'll draw a line in the sand
To pass through
I'll leave a mark
In free hand
I'll draw a line in the sand
To rescue
I'll draw a line

I sing of love and the healing within
But where
Where is the song to end my suffering?
You call me king
But I feel like a failure
You, what colour you choose to paint your skin

I'll draw a line in the sand
To pass through
I'll leave a mark
In free hand
I'll draw a line in the sand
To rescue
I'll draw a line
In free hand

All my letters
Are on fire
From the air
My text is clear
Please forgive me
Please receive me
Rescue me
From all my fears

All my letters
Are on fire
Hell and peace seen from the air
Out of matches
Out of prayers

I'll draw a line in the sand
To pass through
I'll leave a mark
In free hand
I'll draw a line in the sand
To rescue
I'll draw a line
In free hand

I'll draw a line in the sand
To pass through
I'll leave a mark
In free hand
I'll draw a line in the sand
To rescue
I'll draw a line
In free hand

    My OpinionThe first portion of makes me feel sad for Tim almost disconsolate in fact. There's a sense that the years of hard work over the last three decades have largely been unrecognised 'where's our bling'. Then there's 'where's the song to end my suffering' - suggesting that he hasn't yet written the song that will, in his opinion, be popular enough to get the adulation of a wider audience. He is conscious that his fans think the world of him 'you call me king' but this doesn't seem quite enough.

    I can't say I disagree that James are underrated, they don't get the radio play etc But feel uncomfortable that they feel they haven't done enough. Great song though, good album too.
