A nice little original pop rock band.....!!!!! Get some Chime..!!!!

Biography

Chime is an original pop rock group based in the Los Angeles, California area. An award winning band, Chime sets itself apart by blending the jangly rock styles of the "Gin Blossoms" and "The Rembrandts" with the pop rock style of "Fountains of Wayne" to create their own unique, modern "edge".

That unique sound has landed the band direct support slots with bands such as The Smithereens, Ten Yrs After, The Calling, Eve 6, The Gin Blossoms, The Rembrandts, The Tubes and Bo Bice.

Leaning towards an Indie release in late 2008, the band is continually searching for outlets by which their music can be heard and recently added former Gin Blossoms drummer, Scott "Kooze" Kusmirek to their lineup.

Lyrics

It's Coming Down on You

Written By: Bill Curd

(verse 1)
Not long ago i watched your world come tumbling down around you.

You his yourself so deep into a hole, no one found you

anywhere

These days you're back to see if anyone around can save you

No thoughts or feeling for the promises you made

(pre-ch 1)
it's not the same, how can it be
you can't come back asking for second chances

(chorus)
It's Coming Down on You,
you're on you're own
there's no one left around to help you
It's Coming Down on You , girl
you're all alone

(verse 2)
You know the rule of life it was you give not what you get

You've never given more than what you've had to since we met

to anyone

One day you'll look into the mirror then you'll wonder why

There's no hand reaching out to dry the tears you cry

(pre-ch2)
Why should there be
What could you want

You can't come back asking for second chances

(chorus) solo (chorus) out

Monkey on My Back

Written By: Bill Curd & Andy Z

(verse 1)
Crawling thru your window at 2am
to give you your fix
I never really want to but you eintice me with your tricks

(pre-ch1)
And if you don't call me I will not be on your mind, then I feel you're leaving me behind

(chrous 1 - half only)
You're like a Monkey on my back, better face the truth
I follow every move you make

(verse 2)
It's not like I need this, I could leave you any day

You only want me when your man has gone away

(pre-ch2)
And if you don't call me I will not be on your mind, then I feel you're leaving me behind

(chorus 2)
I don't need anybody to tell me what to do, I follow every move you make

You're like a Monkey on my back better face the truth, a nasty habit I can't break

(bridge)
Did I ever tell you it doesn't seem real.
Did you ever care to ask me how I feel

(short turnaround solo)
(chrous 3) out

Let Go Of You

Written By: Bill Curd & Andy Z

(verse 1)

You,,,say not to cry, this is goodbye
it's not a temporary thing

This is the end, so long my friend
You don't have anymore for me

And if I tell you that I love you, would it buy me one more day

And if I tell you that I need you,
Would it make you stay
Would you fade away

(pre-ch/chorus 1))
Now I call your name at night,
you're no longer in my sight,
I'm not living the life I knew

You were everything I know, now I'm losing all control, and I can't face the one thing I should do

(hook)
Can't learn to let go of you
Can't learn to let go of you
Can't learn to let go of you

(verse 2)
This,,,,,is not my choice
I have no voice
there's nothing I can do to change

It's what it is
now you're his
and all the silence seems so strange

And there's nothing I can tell you
No, there's nothing you will hear
Now there's no lie I can tell you
You believed before, you won't believe anymore

(pre-ch2/chorus 2)
Now I call your name at night
You're no longer in my sight
I'm not living the life I knew

You were everything I know
Now I'm losing all control
And I can't face the one thing I should do

(hook)

(bridge)
I thought in time that I might win you back one day
But things aren't what they used to be, could never be, will never be

(hook)with scat

(background scat)
I can't let go
I can't let go
can't let go
I can't let go

(out)
Can't learn let go of you
Oh no, Let go of you
Oh no, Let go of you

Can't learn to let go of you

So Far Away

Written By: Bill Curd & Andy Z

(verse 1)
Since you've gone I'm only half the man I used to be but I get by

by

Fate can take the on you love so unexpectedly I don't know why

why

(chorus)
Somewhere up above the clouds up in the heavens there you are

So Far Away
So Far Away

I can feel you close to me but I can't hear you breathe, cuz you're

So Far Away
So Far Away

(verse 2)
Got your pictures on the wall the always get me thru the night

night

I know I'll see you once again, you'll take my hand and lead me to the light

Light

(chorus)

(vamp) out
You're so far away
You're so far away
And I know I'll see you in the end
We'll be together once again

So Far Away
So Far Away

So Far...............Away
