    Designed and assembled by the band themselves, this limited pressing of 400 discs has been distributed to family and friends as well as each of the bandmates' solo shows following the band's eventual break-up. Only 15 copies remain, so the former frontman of Union Pulse is personally making them available from his new headquarters in New York City, where he is pursuing a solo career. Each copy comes with two all-weather stickers featuring the logo of his new singer-songwriter campaign under his own name, James Tristan Redding. An autograph is available upon request, at no extra charge, but be advised that requires first removing the shrink-wrap. An autographed CD will therefor arrive with no shrink wrap.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Ten Year Anniversary via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

about

A song by James Tristan Redding, as originally released on the Union Pulse album "Angel on a Wire" (2007).

lyrics

Angel on a wire close to a ghost both too sad to be saved
Stranger on the train tracks in the rain lost in puddles with waves

I found something new when I walked out on you
There's a light every dawn I've been missing
The days got so dark that I prayed for a spark
There's a girl in my dreams I've been kissing

Find me a home to call as my own
Find me a hand to hold
Find me a heart as cold as I've known
Light me a fire in your soul

Smoke escaping lips, cold winter hands grasp one last cigarette
Steam beneath a sky that's gonna' cry, blue eyes I won't forget

I found something new when I walked out on you
There's a light every dawn I've been missing
The days got so dark that I prayed for a spark
There's a girl in my dreams I've been kissing

Find me a home to call as my own
Find me a hand to hold
Find me a heart as cold as I've known
Light me a fire in your soul

She rips my heart out of my chest
Please burn to the ground all the rest
Two hearts all alone in the ash
One rises to run from the mess
