JL Sessions Part 2: 10 Past 3

Hello all!

I’m happy to announce that the second installment of the Jay Legaspi Sessions is now up!  I’m proud to present, 10 Past 3:

This was a song I wrote literally at 3:10 AM, and it holds a special significance to me as it’s one of the very first songs I ever wrote.  I love the simplicity and directness of it, and it reminds me of the time when it was just me, a guitar, and a marble notebook.

I hope you enjoy!

Special thanks to JR Pena and Daniel Dai for their creative direction in producing this and all the videos in the series.  A big thank you again to Luke Villapaz and Shelby Chung for the additional camerawork, and a big thank you as well to Amanda Yu who was behind the scenes and the Protools rig making sure I looked and sounded good.

Also, a shout out to Gifted Thought, who wrote some very kind words about the song, and named it his #2 track in his Top 10 Asian-American Tracks of the decade!

10 Past 3
It’s 10 Past 3 and I’m wondering
If I’m in past over my head and I’m
Filled with a lot of anxiety
I apologize in advance for
Not giving you any type of warning
I hope that you won’t get too mad at me

Don’t read too much between the lines, ’cause I haven’t written much this time
Just want to see if I’d be fine without you in my life
And my heart says no
But my mind says it’s possible
But can’t get you out of my head
Ironic, and I know I’m not prepared

Take one last step, take a breath and just clear my head
Wipe the tears from my eyes and go to bed
Can’t believe the dream is ending
Still I can’t stand holding back when I’m feeling us slip away
Oh darling, you know that I just can’t stay
And leave me at that

Lyrics and Music by Jay Legaspi
