How does chemistry work? that's a good question. You can have all the talent imaginable in one room and nothing will happen or you stick 5 guys in a basement and something clicks.

In early 2005 Black Tea was formed when 5 distinct personalities found a common goal; to make music and try to take it to another level each time they picked up their instruments. Originally filling up dates booked as Beyond Therapy, they played mostly covers, sprinkling in new original tunes whenever they could. The crowds began to notice the new songs, and Black Tea went into the studio in late 2006 to record Hurricane on the Edge of Town. Finished in September 2007, and armed with another albums worth of material, and new members in the lineup, Black Tea is pleased to introduce their new CD "Wrapped Up In The Story"

Lyrics

Away

Written By: Black Tea

Been around this town I’ve seen alot more that you know But you’ve just taken the cake Fell for this and when I fell, I fell it was for sure
Somebody take me away

Been down so low I can’t say how I can’t say when I can’t take anything here Good to see what I know still don’t mean shit it’s now clear
Somebody take me away

Been through this a million times I can’t take no more Why did you darken my door? I know where I’ve been I can’t feel I know it’s done
Somebody take me away...

Find yourself another little heart to break Somebody take me away

Without You

Written By: Black Tea

Serenade me in the night I’m without you and I don’t like Where I’m heading so far away I’ve torm myself from you unpleasant day yeah

I am lost without you
Oh my lord you know
I am lost without you

A hundred miles now so far away I keep driving my night into day I stop to rest my head and I’m alone The heart I chose to break and now my own yeah

I am lost without you
Oh my lord you know
I am lost without you
So I stand alone
I am lost without you
Oh my lord you know
I am lost without you

A million miles now or so it seems Come and rouse me from these bitter dreams I’m turning round now and heading home I was such a fool to leave you alone

Oh my lord I’m.....
I am lost.... without you!
