BandRockAlternative

A soulful songbird quartet with a sound all their own, Carousol is bringing an infectious freshness to modern rock. They have a sonic presence that demands the listener’s ear and delivers lyrics with weight and melodies that move the soul.

Biography

Driving, Ambient, Flavorful, Contemplative, Gushing...just a few words to describe Carousol's sounds. For these guys it is all about the live show and taking it past the songs straight to the music. Formed in 2005 by Forrest Detwiler, Shaun Combs, Jeff Baker, and Mike Cotton this quartet carries a huge sound and sweet takes on some classic songs like Come Together and Superstious, not to mention their own music that is comparable to Coldplay, DMB, Aqualung, Five for Fighting, and The Fray. Detwiler's smooth but edgy baritone vocal washes over you like warm water, while Baker's groove keeps your heart beat and Cotton's textures make you melt. Carousol is a must see band in 2007 and a must listen for every ipod.

Lyrics

Emergency

Written By: F. Detwiler

emergency...can anybody hear me call out their name
emergency...i can see their faces i can feel their pain

after me, chasing me, running down my apathy. breaking down my conscience to a fault. everyday i see his face but nothing moves me from this place of isolation from them all

hear my cry, my voice is almost gone
we've arrived just in the nick of time

emergency...can anbody hear me call out their name
emergency...cut the red tape quickly excuses all sound the same

freedom

hear my cry, my voice is almost gone
we've arrived just in the nick of time
mute men speak and deafen all our noise
they're alive, but only in our dreams

It's Love

Written By: F. Detwiler

ah...
you are a light in the dark stark nakedness of life
you are a dream you're heaven in front of me

ah...

table for two 'cause i love sitting in front of you
you are a sea a sea of tea and sympathy

it's love, put a little grace down in your heart
it's love, put a little peace down in your soul

you take my hand we'll pretend everyone in the world is friends
for all the gold, it's a race, we're all in a rainbow chase

open the door, it's right in front of you

it's love, put a little grace down in your heart
it's love, put a little peace down in your soul

Come Over

Written By: F. Detwiler

I think we might be different i pleaded guilty and i think you're innocent

there's nothing wrong with being clean it's just that life is so dirty

come over, i said come over and be my greatest, sweetest escape
come over, i said come over and love me

i know you wished upon a star
you're dreams are much more near than they are far

there's nothing wrong with fantasy i just prefer to live in reality

come over, i said come over and be my greatest, sweetest escape
come over, i said come over and love me

away, away with me

come ove, i said come over and be my greatest, sweetest escape
come over, i said come over and love me

Change

Written By: F. Detwiler

lock me down, or i'll float away
take a step, well i might some day
make a rhyme, if i only had the time
do it now, well i don't know how and i can't change, oh

knock me down, well i'll get up again
don't turn around, i've got to look back
let go please, i need to hold on to my dreams, their all that i've got and i can't change, oh

and i know you want me to be, the man that we all see, the one in the pictures, and all over the t.v., well i can't change my center and who says it would be better anyway and that's why i'm talking with you tonight cause i can't change, oh

tone it down, i would if i could
take a pill, and just chill out
can't you see, i wouldn't be me
i don't care, this life just isn't fair and i can't change, oh

and i know you want me to be, the man that we all see, the one in the pictures, and all over the t.v., well i can't change my center and who says it would be better anyway and that's why i'm talking with you tonight cause i can't change, oh

i can't change my name, i can't change my face, i can't change the way i walk or the space that i take
i can't change change the way i look or the way i took in when you said you wanted me to be different, and i can't change.....

and i know you want me to be, the man that we all see, the one in the pictures, and all over the t.v., well i can't change my center and who says it would be better anyway and that's why i'm talking with you tonight cause i can't change, o
