Sam Bradley on Rob & "Never Think"



Portrait magazine has posted an interview with Sam Bradley, who co-wrote "Never Think" with Rob. In the interview, he talks a bit about Rob's approaches to music.

(This isn't the full interview, just a few parts where Rob is mentioned)

You wrote 'Never Think', on the Twilight soundtrack, with Robert Pattinson - and then you apparently went in completely different directions when recording it. How did that happen - is there an original version?

The original version is just sort of bits and pieces of when we were writing it. So, no, there's no real original version. What it is, is we wrote a song... I came back to Canada, and kind of switched it up a little bit for myself. Melodically, what we originally wrote is probably closer to my version. But Rob, when he plays music, he's really in touch with what he's doing, so he plays a song differently every time. Any song, it'll never sound the same. It's really cool, he's really in the moment. So the recording of Never Think that he did will never sound the same again, which is kind of interesting. Lyrically, though, it's similar.

It's funny, because you can never understand what he's singing. So it's really interesting to listen to your version and say, "Oh, that's what he's saying!"

I don't think anyone has guessed the lyrics right yet. I've been on YouTube, and I've been reading what people think are the lyrics. Even the first line, I don't think I've read the right first line yet. I mean, he sings it like that because that's how it comes out. I personally love it. I mean, I know what he's saying. There's a feeling behind it, like he's singing it to that person that he's talking to.

So, what was it like, sitting in the theatre and watching the Twilight premiere... and then hearing the song being played?

I've seen the film three times now. It's pretty exciting. I went to the LA premiere, and then I went to London. And then I took my mom to see it in Vancouver. But yeah, I was sitting with Marcus and Bobby [Long] at the London premiere, and we started like - aaah! - jumping up and down.

Their song is great, too.

Oh, the best bit of the film. And Rob does such a good job with it.

So, are the actual, VERIFIED lyrics anywhere?

Sam Bradley didn't mention where they could be found, if they exist . . .

Anyone know?

I haven't found the actual lyrics, yet. But to me, the first line sounds like:
"I should never think; what's in your heart; what's in our home; is all that I want."

Never Think-Rob Pattison

I should never think
What's in your heart
What's in our home
So I won't

You'll learn to hate me
But still call me baby
Oh love
So call me by my name

And save your soul
Save your soul
Before your to far gone
Before nothing can be done

I'll try to decide when
She'll lie in the end
I ain't got no fight in me
In this whole damn world
So hold off
She should hold off
It's the one thing that I've known

Once I put my coat on
I coming out in this all wrong
She standing outside holding me
Saying oh please
I'm in love
I'm in love

Girl save your soul
Go on save your soul
Before it's to far gone
And before nothing can be done

Cause without me
You got it all
So hold on
Without me you got it all
So hold on
Without me you got it all
Without me you got it all
So hold on
Without me you got it all
Without me you got it all
So hold on
