CARLOS RAMOS & THE PUBLIC

BandRockAlternative

Captivating, raw, and honest.

Biography

Carlos Ramos - vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter delivering honest, heartfelt lyrics through a powerful voice with subtle undertones of American roots music. Able to play and write in a variety of styles, continually working at the craft of song writing.

Matty Apples- drummer virtuoso, pounding out thunderous rock, and communicating delicate nuance, a true artist in his style. Studied in the art of jazz, and latin, and able to play all styles with a mastery well beyond his years.

Both have played together and independently on different projects and performed all over NYC, Boston, and much of the Northeast.

Now they've come together with a strong common goal of creating art through music, and reaching out to THE PUBLIC. A bare-bones, grit style act that puts all the emotion into their playing, whether a straight up rock power house, or soft ballad, it's intense, and they make you feel it.

Lyrics

I Get Lost

Written By: Carlos Ramos

it all became so clear to me today, as I
watched the sun fade away

and in the darkness I have got myself
to find, with your guiding light

in dusk and twilight ponder
only stronger; I become to you
'cause

I get lost, in your face, in your arms
your beautiful grace
I have found strength in you
in your place no one will do

I never thought that I could say that
I am ok, with whatever comes my way

you give me strength beyond your kindness I hope I can, return
the favor someday

and I lose the words sometimes
overwhelmed; all that I can say
is

I get lost, in your face, in your arms
your beautiful grace
I have found strength in you
in your place no one will do

Lullaby me to sleep you always sing so sweet
Lullaby me my love your words they bring me peace

and in the night I feel so safe and warm
the soothing soft touch of your voice
the tune I hum before I sleep
your lullaby so simple sweet
and every word I do believe
you whisper to me: I love you

I get lost, in your face, in your arms
your beautiful grace
I have found strength in you
in your place no one will do

When Will I See You Again?

Written By: Carlos Ramos

I changed the way I looked
to try and love myself again
but when I look into the mirror
I look for you instead

'cause you left yesterday
and I feel it, feel it in my veins
the blood runnin' through my heart
it doesn't feel the same
and all I wanna do
is scream out your name
'cause I love you...

...when will I see you again?

I listened to the songs
we heard in my room yesterday
I wanted them to cheer me up
but they brought me down instead

I changed the way I looked
to try and love myself again
but when I look into the mirror
I look for you instead

'cause you left yesterday
and I feel it, feel it in my veins
the blood runnin' through my heart
it doesn't feel the same
and all I wanna do
is scream out your name
'cause I love you...

...when will I see you again?

Nothing tough we've ever been through can change the way I feel about you
and every time you leave my side
I sit at home and have to wonder why
a little piece inside me dies
but I know that it's 'cause
I love you
oh baby I love you

and all I wanna know is

when will I see you again?
when will I see you again?
when will I see you again?
when will I see you again?

The Bottom Line (A Civilized Fantasy)

Written By: Carlos Ramos

all the great monopolies seizing all there is to take
causing a break between real reality
and this strive for perfection
all it is, is fake

and the bottom line
is the bottom line
no one sees this, why?
don't you wanna scream?

I don't want your plastic airbrushed auto tune
I just wanna hear, hear some fuckin' blues
and I'm screamin' for more truth

where have all the patrons gone?
dead, dead long ago
from the rite of spring
to the summer of love
and now this cold ice age; silicone
where's the authenticity?
no one cares
and no one seems to know

and the bottom line
is the bottom line
no one sees this, why?
don't you wanna scream?

I don't want your plastic airbrushed auto tune
I just wanna hear, hear some fuckin' blues
and I'm screamin' for more truth
and I'm screamin' for more truth
and I'm screamin' for more truth

====

I don't want your plastic airbrushed auto tune
I just wanna hear, hear some fuckin' blues
and I'm screamin' for more truth
and I'm screamin' for more truth
and I'm screamin' for more truth
