Lyrics

The gift

Written By: Matt track

January first a while ago, was about nine years of age or so
family's all there once a year, food, music wine and beer
uncles talk about sports and cars, while women exchange recipes of pies
Oh, no one is wondering if, we were all waiting for a gift

My name's written on the box, samn it was big
was expecting a toy a snowboard something cool when you're a kid
altogether around the christmas tree
when the packings are torn the toys get free
godmother gave the box was too excited to speak
took my time to open it the moment was so exquisite
i saw the picture on the lid my stomach started feeling weird
a small guitar was there watching my face turn pale
thought it was the most disappointing gift present ive ever had

playing got my fingers sore, and there was nothing wrong
i knew id find a way to sing another song

the weather could be hissing down and i wont mind if im with my guitar
and when came june, dad thought me tunes
some harder some harder ones
and then some I could sing along
and then I could create

playing got my fingers sore, and there was nothing wrong
i knew id find a way to sing another song

Quality

Written By: Matt track

I’m taking you my friends out for a drink tonight because we need it and it’s been a while since we have / don’t say you can’t don’t say you won’t come / I’m already downstairs knocking on your door / let’s forget the day/ let’s forget the time / let’s take off our watch and leave everything behind / I can’t promise it’ll be only one drink who knows / let’s go with the flow / I wanna spend with you quality time / quality friends / Just like we used to do / there ain’t no line there ain’t no end
First round is mine we’ll see the glasses shine / all of a sudden an idea comes to my mind / if we hit the fist C’est l’carnaval calisse / you guys know the sign we’re getting on the pissed / cheers to our loves / to our trips around the earth / let’s talk about everything but work / the dance floor will be our take off track / on the sthhot bar we’ll have a massive attack / I can’t promise I’ll be only one drink no more / let’s go with the flow / I wanna spend with you quality time / quality friends / Just like we used to do / there aint no line there aint no end / we’ll get the munchies at 4 o’clock / the special big breakfast with the lot will keep us awake till the sun comes up

A chance

Written By: Matt track

New inbox messages for today once again / no one from the industry wrote me back / even when they said they’d listen to the tracks / my innocent hopes had me thinking it’d be fast / I try to convince myself that it al don’t matter to me / but the truth comes back up / I have to face it I wanna a shot / I’m strumming my strings on new cords / I think that the melody is good enough / I hope in vain that someone will give me a chance / I wait like a saint for someone who will give me a chance / I want it real bad
Ink has been filling up my pages now / Heavier is my book now full of songs that can’t wait to be found / One day the crowds will get into the groove / want them to feel the moods / sing my songs and pop the roof / I send my stuff when they say so / If they just don’t like it at least I want to Know.
