Biography

Blind Like Sam was formed in late 2006. It was a fortuitous meeting between, Matt Toledo and Tony Landrith, who started this musical endeavor. Their decision to create music and a band, that would become known as – Blind Like Sam, would be rooted from their individual experiences both personal and musical. After sitting down and working out a handful of songs that would eventually wind up on the debut album “Bury My Heart” the two quickly produced and posted these song on the internet to entice additional band members. To frame up this structure Chuck Sinner lends his insane sensibilities. Well seasoned in his craft he provides an unwavering sense of timing and mastery.

ALL THE YESTERDAYS

Written By: Tony Landrith & Matt Toledo. 08/05/2007

i know that only time can tell
but still i want to wish you well
can you stay to have a little fun
i know we'd be the only ones
trust me - i won't say a word
i know we're done or so i've heard

but you'll need a man like me
to be the girl you need to be
i can see the reasons why

all the yesterdays are gone
i'm a lucky guy to just hang on
i wanna hear you scream my name
one more time

in the end we'll be just friends
i wanna kiss your face again
it was me who made you shine

before you go sit next to me
remember how things used to be
i'm breathless as you cross the room
can't imagine you'll be gone so soon
and L.A. seems so far from here
you never seemed that insincere

So it’s down to this for me
I’m the kind of man I know you need
can’t see the reasons why

all the yesterdays are gone
i'm a lucky guy to just hang on
i wanna hear you scream my name
one more time
in the end we'll be just friends
i wanna kiss your face again
it was me who made you shine

been here before and i realized the fears
all the yesterdays somehow reappear
only time can be my worst enemy
as your turning away and walking out on me

You're gonna need a man like me
all this time and still I can’t believe
You won’t see the reasons why

all the yesterdays are gone
i'm a lucky guy to just hang on
i wanna hear you scream my name
one more time
in the end we'll be just friends
i wanna kiss your face again
it was me who made you shine

I know that only time can tell.

AWKWARD MOMENT

Written By: Tony Landrith 11/16/2006

they say you should never hurt the ones you love
but it was you that I wanted to kill when you said, "it's enough"
though it's the end of our time I can't let you go
the memories we made they'll haunt me all my life

-- and I still don't know what to say

this is an awkward moment
this is an awkward time
this isn't how it’s supposed to end
you're still supposed to be mine
and this is an awkward place for me
to make a brand new start
with an empty void remaining
where I used to keep my heart

the days pass by and I can't seem to get the rhythm right
my life marches on out of step, but it's all right
time heals the wounds at least that's what they say
but the scar of a man I've become will never go away

-- and I still can't get the words right

there's the awkward silence
that seems to fill my life
with dreams of awkward violence
where I'd kill to make it right
and though it's quite peculiar
in the saddest sort of way
my loneliness takes me back in time
to that terribly awkward day

-- when you were mine (3x)
(and the days slowly pass and i still want you back someday)
-- and I still don't know what to say

REASON TO BREATHE

Written By: Tony Landrith

sometimes
i feel
you’d wait
until
i’d die
to be
with you
i’m free

To be whoever you want
I’ll be there for you
To go wherever you want
I’ll go there with you

You can count
on me
To be
everything
For you
I’d do
Just about
anything

Wake up and run through the night in the pouring rain
To feel your arms around me and kiss you again
To feel your breath on my face and the touch of your skin
I’d die a thousand times to be born again

well I’ve never been
never been strong enough
now I know that for me
i know that for me you’ll be
it has changed me
in a way that’s real
and it’s given me
it’s given me
a reason to breathe

now I’d spend
my last days with you
send me through hell
i’d make it though
and we’d be
together at last
as it’s been
eternally
you and me

To be whoever you want
I’ll be there for you
To go wherever you want
I’ll go there with you
To feel your breath on my face and the touch of your skin
I’d die a thousand times to be born again

you know I’ve never been
never been strong enough
now I know that for me
i know that for me you’ll be
cause you’ve changed me
in ways that is real
It’s given me
it’s been given me...
and i’ve never been
I’ve never been strong enough
now I know that for me
i know that for me you’ll be
you keep changing me
in ways I can feel
you’ve been given me
you always give me
a reason to breathe

ON AND ON

Written By: Matthew Toledo & Tony Landrith

'goodbye for now' is all i thought
and in an instant i'm distraught
over the notion that you're gone

tomorrow i will wake to see
my life and what it's come to be
how could i take you seriously?

so i still go
on and on and on and on,
and on and on and on and on,
on and on and on and on
and on.

'hello' i see you're doing fine
it's funny how you think i was blind
when all i wanted was some time

so we'll try again, you know i'm down
if it doesnt work out, i won't come around
we can't escape this wreck anyway, anyhow - why stop now?

we can go
on and on and on and on,
and on and on and on and on,
on and on and on and on
and on.

today you came and i was glad
why did we let things get so bad?
and now i miss what we should have had
should have had, it's so damn sad.

and still we go
on and on and on and on,
[i can let you go]
and on and on and on and on,
[where's the you i used to know]
on and on and on and on
[so far from where we belong]
and on

and still i go
on and on and on and on,
[with visions of you]
and on and on and on and on,
[and all that we used to do]
on and on and on and on
[getting back where we belong]
and on

LYING HERE ON THE FLOOR

Written By: Tony Landrith

lying here on the floor
beatin' myself up again
i'm finding it hard to let you in
i can't take this anymore
it's not that i just can't feel
it's that i don't always say what i mean
you know i don't mean to be cruel
it's just the scared part of me

been sufferin’ through the lies i've made
but still holding on to our days
i’m sure you'll see through it all...
but i hope you stay

you're so perfect for me
i know that this can't be good for you
the harder that i seem to try
the more that it seems to be
that your slipping away from me
until it’s all just a memory
of how I should have changed
and how things could have been

i'm standing out in the rain
wishing this all away from me
to get myself clean again
to be who you need
and there's nothing i wouldn't do for you
to be a better man for you
but the more that i've tried to change
the more that different feels the same
and i feel like i'm losing you

it feels like I’m counting the days
and today might be the day
that you finally see through it all...
but i hope you stay

you're so perfect for me
i know that this can't be good for you
the harder that i seem to try
the more that it seems to be
that your slipping away from me
until it’s all just a memory
of how I should have changed
and how things could have been

and i'll remember the days when you used to say
“it's crazy how i want to spend all my time with you”
and i'll regret the day when i'm sure i'll hear you say
"i'm sorry but it's hard it's had to end this way"

you're so perfect for me
i know that this can't be good for you
the harder that i seem to try
the more that it seems to be
that your slipping away from me
until it’s all just a memory
of how I should have changed
and how we could have been

i'm lying here on the floor
beatin' myself up again
i know that i'll never let you in
i can't take this anymore

BURY MY HEART

Written By: Tony Landrith 1/24/2007

“here lies the heart of a broken man”
so rest in peace The tombstone reads
“ashes to ashes, dust to dust”
the preacher says “It was love or bust”

damn, it takes a desperate man
desperate times call for reckless plans

na na na...
not taking a chance no more
na na na...
they’ve all broke my heart before
na na na...
never want to hurt again
na na na na...
so, “bury my heart”

they came from miles around to say goodbye
but love never left
now everyone shares a cry
there’s a beautiful heart with good intent
destroyed by love
you truly will be missed

damn, it’s hard to say goodbye
cause I know how hard I’ve tried

na na na...
not taking a chance no more
na na na...
they’ve all broke my heart before
na na na...
never want to hurt again
na na na na...
so, “Bury my heart”

one final prayer to ease my pains
one final thought
one day they will finally pay
they bow their heads and praise the skies
but love died today
at the memorial service for my heart

lord, it takes a desperate man
desperate times and recluse man

na na na...
not taking a chance no more
na na na...
they’ve all broke my heart before
na na na...
never want to hurt again
na na na na...
so, “Bury my heart” (2x)

i buried my heart today
don’t want your love
i don’t need your love
please just let this suffering end

YOU THINK YOU THOUGHT OF EVERYTHING

Written By: Tony Landrith & Matthew Toledo

you took what you want
believe me for only
once and a while
did you see how I’m lonely
so take what you need
well please let it be me

and all I every wanted was a place to call home
someone to love me and someone to hold

caught in a dream
all those dreams I dreamed of you
a place not so far
a place where I could have been
now take what you need
oh please let it be me

and all I every wanted was a place to call home
someone to love me and someone to hold

and you think you thought of everything
and claim to live the life you’ve always wanted
and I’m here to tell you you forgot one thing
you forgot me you forgot me you forgot me...

i remember the day
it’s the day that my skies turned so dark
as the Sun fades away
i swear I’ll never see the light
you took what you need
how I so wish it had been me

and all I every wanted was a place to call home
someone to love me and someone to hold

and you think you thought of everything
and claim to live the life you’ve always wanted
and I’m here to tell you you forgot one thing
you forgot me you forgot me you forgot me...

you’re a stain upon my life
that’s wasted all my time
cause everything you took meant nothing
i’ve torched everything we were
now nothing of you remains
and all these memories are scattered ashes
never to return
NEVER TO RETURN

and you think you thought of everything
and claim to live the life you’ve always wanted
and I’m here to tell you you forgot one thing
you forgot me you forgot me you forgot me...

SUMMER DAZE

Written By: Tony Landrith

summer daze - bring back all my yesterdays
and where have you gone
sweet goodbyes - your legend never seems to die
but slowly I will fade

to hell with them
I’d find you on the streets again
and I can’t let you go
you’ve hurt before
you swear that you won’t love no more
but how was I to know

and everytime you had to go away
i could feel your tears crying out in pain
and I want you to know that I never felt the shame
and I’ve always kept you in my heart

love is mean
but you’re the sweetest girl I’ve ever seen
and I’ll promise that I’ll be true
in your darkest days
my feelings they will never change
despite all the crazy things that you do

and everytime you had to go away
i could feel your tears crying out in pain
i want you to know that I never felt the shame
and I’ve always kept you in my heart

summer’s gone
I see that you are moving on
now where am I to go
remember when
we use to be the best of friends
and my how things have changed

and everytime you’ll had to go away
i will feel your tears crying out in pain
i want you to know that I never feel the shame
and I’ll always kept you in my heart

and you’re there in my heart
