About Cally Bell

I entered my singer/songwriting career later in life.

I really enjoy writing poems inspired by life events, and my curiosity to learn more about music, led me to meet Chris Franklin who became my brilliant mentor as I developed my music. I tend to write music instinctively, with an ear to how things sound, rather than following formal musical structure.

This is how I had the original idea for the lyrics to Give it Time, my first single and video produced in collaboration with Chris.

My musical influences include Kate Bush, Barbara Streisand, Elton John/ Bernie Taupin, John Barry. I also loves musical theatre, and this also strongly influences my writing.

I was made aware of the songwriting competition through a friend’s Instagram post, didn’t give it a lot of thought and furthered the info to Chris Franklin. He of course saw the benefit of taking part in such a chance. I must admit I was in awe of everyone on there. Wasn’t hard to spot the stars!

 

On a personal level it gave me confidence in myself with the music. Pat Orchard contacted Chris to join with the Late Night Flying project, and as we write together and I am the ‘voice’ of our music, so far, I guess it makes sense. I am loving the stories and photos of many other Late Night Flyers all alongside famous faces.....Hey I’m 59 now and I’d never have thought decade ago I’d one day be among people who got to perform with Tears For Fears, and played their music in Abbey Road Studios, and more.



Give It Time - LYRICS

When life, feels hard to do
Your soul tormented
If you’re broken in two
Your world a crumbling ‘round you

Just believe, there will be an answer
Give it time, give it time, yeah
Know that there will be a morning after
Give it time, give it time
You will find peace of mind
If you just ... give it time

As storm clouds start to break
Look, oh yes, look for the rainbow
Its arc of light
Takes us to those better times

Just believe there will be an answer
Give it time, give it time, yeah
Know that there will be a morning after
Give it time, give it time, yeah
You will find peace of mind, oh yeah
If you just ... give it time
You know, you know

Your soul will mend,
you will get there in the end
Feel your heart is healing, you will know now
You’re a survivor, who’s stronger
than you were, before this time

Just believe, there will be an answer
Give it time, give it time, oh yeah
Know that there will be a morning after
Just give it time, give it time
You will find peace of mind, oh yeah
If you just ... give it time
Just, give it time

Just give it, time
