Biography

4th Gear official bio
Joe, Jamie, and Anthony have been together since 2001. Joe started the band when he found Jamie, a fellow dirtbiker, who played drums. Jamie found Anthony in homeroom. They’d never met before but Anthony could play Linkin Park songs so Jamie made him come over. They started a metal band and booked their first show which was a month away but didn’t have a singer. They found a temporary solution for about a year. After trying out about a dozen singers they found Josh. With Josh they transformed to the style of music they are today, along with picking up the name 4th Gear. With Josh the band recorded 2 demos and a full length. In 2005 Joe found Kevin to be the complement to Anthony’s guitar work. Sadly, Josh left the band to pursue a college education in California. The loss was extremely discouraging for the band, but the band persevered. For 9 months they searched for a new singer and were rewarded for their hard work when they found Eric. With the addition of Eric, 4th Gear continues to pursue their dreams with a new enthusiasm towards their music and performance.

Lyrics

5 Miles Ahead

Written By: 4th Gear

Lightning filled the air as I ran away from there
No Clothes on my back
I'm not going home
Blackness surrounded me
Pain at home haunted me
Nowhere to run nowhere to hide
Never returning to All those lies

Chorus

Find me
Someone please
5 Miles ahead
Catch me
X2

Verse 2

My foot is stuck
All my thoughts have been stepped on
I dropped to my knees
Wondering everything

Confusion Flies by me
Fields are all I can see
Time is gone
Will I make it to to nowhere
X2

Bridge

Give me a chance
Give me a chance
Let's just work together
Give me a chance
Give me a chance
Just let me Breathe
X2

Chorus

Find me
Someone please
5 Miles ahead
Catch me
X2

Remember

Written By: 4th Gear

Verse 1
I remember when your eyes met mine
I remember when your hand fell in mine
Wrong reasons can be bad
My reasons in the end made you sad
In the end

Chorus
I remember the things that I said to you
I remember the pain I put you through
I remember when you said
My heart is dead

Verse 2
I remember when you taught me
I remember when she was around I could be me
There was one thing that wasn’t right
When she was around all the time
So I said good bye

Chorus
I remember the things that I said to you
I remember the pain I put you through
I remember when you said
My heart is dead

Verse 3
I remember that one night
I met this girl she changed my life
Her eyes they melted me
When she was around I was happy
Because she completed me

Chorus
I remember the things that I said to you
I remember the pain I put you through
I remember when you said
My heart is dead

Change of Heart

Written By: 4th Gear

Why do I think about you so much,
I don’t know why you do those things you do.
You keep pushin and pullin me, in and out of your touch.
I can’t live without it, I wonder about it, this pain keeps getting stronger

So come down fall away, fall on me, and do what you please
Make up your mind I need you to stay, but I want you to leave
So come down fall away fall on me but do what you please
Make up your mind I need you to stay, but I want you to leave

This happened too many times before
I wish it could just be ignored
The more I think the days, keep getting longer
I need the sun to set, cuz I need a final answer

So come down fall away, fall on me, and do what you please
Make up your mind I need you to stay, but I want you to leave
So come down fall away fall on me but do what you please
Make up your mind I need you to stay, but I want you to leave

Please just go away,
Don’t even try to stay
Please just go away
Don’t even try to stay

So come down fall away, fall on me, and do what you please
Make up your mind I need you to stay, but I want you to leave
So come down fall away fall on me but do what you please
Make up your mind I need you to stay, but I want you to leave
