Biography

Penticton-born, North Vancouver-based Robin Younge is a singer, songwriter and guitarist who performs under the moniker of Clouds of Analog.
 
Inspired and influenced by the likes of Peter Gabriel, Nine Inch Nails and Emmylou Harris, Younge is set to introduce himself with the release of his first full-length album, The Funeral March, on March 13, 2012.
 
Produced in Vancouver by up-and-comer Martin Acosta and mixed by Delwyn Brooks (Bif Naked, Holly McNarland) The Funeral March is a collection of songs based on the emotional stages of grief.  The first single, “Lately”, focuses on the battle with one’s ego and how it is used to protect oneself from getting hurt, which inevitably leads to the inability to truly enjoy the gifts that come one’s way.
 
Having spent most of his life listening to music as a source of comfort and therapy, Younge has always been determined to write and perform his own. 
 
“My entire life, I’ve wanted to write the music that I’m writing right now.  This is my path and although it has been a long and challenging one, there’s nothing else that I see myself doing."
 

Lyrics

When I Was Young

Written By: Robin Younge

When I was young I fell through this hole I had dug here.

I felt my lungs collapse from the lack of fresh air.

The walls keep caving around my body,

And the lack of light scares and swallows this body.

Take your fists and break all of the teeth in my mouth now.

And tear my skin to hold me naked without love

This hole I had dug here was for some sort of seclusion,

and then it stops my heart beaks from all this confusion.

Well I let you down...

Well I know what you see. Well somethings not right if you’re with me.

Well I’ve made up my mind and i feel alright, and I’ll break all of my bones

just to stay here tonight.

Well I let you down...
So fall.
Well I let you down...

...and I’ll break all of my bones. Well I’ve made up my mind and I feel

alright and I’ll break all of my bones just to stay here tonight.

Well I let you down.

Lightning

Written By: Robin Younge

So take this nice and slow cause I’m not the one who
guides you. I am the lightning that strikes you, but I’m not the one that you need.

All out of focus and bound by greed.
I feel the homeless as they count on me.
All out of frame as I grind my teeth.
All out of focus and bound by...

Hold my arms at night.
Hold me close and tight, but I’m not the one who guides you. I am destruction that haunts you. I’m not the one that you need.

So take this nice and slow cause I’m not the one who guides you. I am the lightning that strikes you, but I’m not the one that you need.

Lately

Written By: Robin Youge

My heart breaks and then it mends in two, this is how I, how I fell out of love with you.

For every armor piercing bullet aimed at my forehead, ya their lodged right inside my brain.

Taking back the right to shout that I can win, holding onto doubt and I’m buried thin.
Feeling scared and trapped how this wont leave me alone, and I , and I feel the battles gone.

So lately, I know what I’ve done wrong come on over, so come on over.

Break my arm and set it back in place, so I know that, that you once held some hate for me.
Drag me through the mud and leave me there, then I’ll come back breathing out all of my despair.

Taking back the right to shout that I can win, holding onto doubt and I’m buried thin.
Feeling scared and trapped how this wont leave me alone, and I , and I don’t feel the battles gone.

So lately I know what I’ve done wrong come on over, so come on over.

Alone

Written By: Robin Younge

Can you remember when I told you I was scared?

You held me tight and ran your fingers through my hair.

You told me I would never be alone, It’s just a vision of you that I call my own.

I held your hands as your lights began to fade, closed your eyes and next to you is where I lay.

I’m lonely without the thought of loosing you, at least then I had something to hold onto.

Cause I’m afraid of where this is leading.

Cause I’m afraid.

Time is here to let us fall behind.

Time is here and time aint always right.

I’m sorry my love but now I have to go

I’ll always love the girl I used to know.

cause I don’t know where I’m supposed to be

Cause I don’t know what I’m supposed to need.

Cause I’m afraid of where this is leading.

Well I don’t need you cause you never needed me.

Be4me

Written By: Robin Younge

Step away from you and believe in what you choose cause I’m the one that you need

without a word that you’ll speak.

Wait alone all night. I’ll just wait without a fight just realize that you’re mine. Just realize

that you’re mine.

Cause I’m for you can’t you see yet you’re not with me. I’ll just hold it down for you, just

be for me so I wont choose.

Now is where i’ll start. Now is where I’ll start. Just realize that you’re mine. Just realize

that you’re mine.

Cause I’m for you can’t you see, yet you’re not with me. I’ll just hold it down for you, just

be for me so I wont choose.

Wont you be for me.

Ethylene

Written By: Robin Younge

A disgrace to this body for I’ve never been all that bright.

I stood at the back of the beginning of my life.

Take the back of your hand and strike with
all your might.

Well I know that I failed and it’s alright by me.

I’ve given up, can you hear me screaming.

Well I’m not that brave to be standing right next...

So get it over with for I’ve already had everything taken from me.

Ya the smiles and everything I thought happiness was supposed to be.

Get your hands around my neck please, surrendering me.

Well I know that I failed and it’s alright by me.

I’ve given up, can you hear me screaming.

Well I’m not that brave to be standing right next to me.

In Dying Light

Written By: Robin Younge

Black the night around my eyes, well I feel in need of a disguise.

I feel the cold boil up inside, I might just leave it all behind.

So I close my eyes to fall asleep. So I close my eyes to fall asleep.

I failed you more than you will know, the tales of us in love must go.

Just free yourself and rid of me, relax I know it’s what you need.

So I close my eyes to fall asleep. So I close my eyes to fall asleep,

and I can’t bare with all your needs

I’m restless when I’m with you.

So black the night around my eyes, I feel in need of a disguise.

Don’t take me back for I don’t care, I failed that’s why your never there.

So I close my eyes to fall asleep. So I close my eyes to fall asleep,

and I can’t bare with all your needs

I’m restless when I’m with you.

So I close my eyes to fall asleep. So I close my eyes to fall asleep,

and I can’t bare with all your needs

I’m restless when I’m with you.

The Collapse

Written By: Robin Younge

Bones they wont break if you don’t sleep standing on roof tops.
Lean over the edge blindly, begging please to just jump and forget about me.

Pain as though I’ve known destroys a Mother’s plead. It’s all you’ve got to cling to.
I’ll forgive what you’re about to do. I’ll let you leap. So just jump and forget about me.

I will wait for you. My heart is broken in two. I will wait for you my love.

Now the night slips in, your eyes begin to freeze.
The warmth is all but fleeting.
I don’t trust the Holy Ghost, reach an arm out and let it bleed.

Wrong

Written By: Robin Younge

Well I always thought that we would always last without the tears that drown me in my sleep.

if the years revolve around our past mistakes then we’ll never feel that way again.

And I wont stand behind your eyes
And you can’t save me now
and no you can’t save...

I need a guiding light if I’m to stand alone for its dark without somebody near.

If you only heard and if you only knew of the sounds you make in my ears.

And I wont stand behind your eyes
And I wont stand behind your eyes

And you can’t save me now
and no you can’t save me now
and no you can’t save...

There’s something wrong with me.
There must be something wrong with me.
There must be something wrong with me.
