Biography

The Ellerker story began in a kebab shop on the outskirts of Hull in the early months of 2007. Soon after, Ellerker were doing acoustic gigs nationwide with their own fusion of melodic hooks and heart-felt lyrics.

The acoustic chapter closed and the Ellerker of today was born. The indie four-piece are gracing stages up and down the country with their flamboyant stage presence and unique musical style that takes influence from bands such as ‘The Early November’, ‘Taking Back Sunday’ & ‘The Killers’.

Ellerker have been on regional radio stations, such as KCFM's Rock Show. The press are saying:

"...they've definately got the look, tight performance, catchy tunes and stage presence; ticks in all boxes." - Hull Vibe

"Ellerker are one of the best bands I've heard in a long time!" - Magnum

The four-piece radiated energy in their set of polished and positive rock songs... those that can listen will hear the subtlety of great writing underneath." - This is 'Ull

Ellerker have had live videos played on the BBC Big Screen that were viewed by thousands of people with huge ammounts of positive feedback.

The story so far ends here, but before you know it, Ellerker will be bigger and balder than Britney Spears!

Lyrics

(I'll Be) Your Superman

Written By: Ellerker

I'll Be (Your Superman)

Verse:
Standing outside in the pouring rain,
Trouble never leaves my side, it's always the same.
I'm stood alone, with my back against the wall
Waiting for a text, a page, or a call.

Am I Wasting my time
Waiting for you?
Taking my time
To give it all to you, 'cause...

Chorus:
Baby, Baby, I've been thinkin' about you
Because lately, lately, I wanna do what you do.
Baby, Baby, I think that we can.
Can I be your Superman?

Verse:
I pick myself up, the taxi's in the bay.
I hear you calling my name, so I send the cab away.
You say your sorry, for being so late,
My heart always skips a beat, when it plays around with fate.

Spending my time,
Living for you.
Taking my time,
To give it all to you. Yeah

Chorus

Middle 8:
I I I wont ever leave your side
Because you ou ou wont ever leave my eyes
And I I I wanna stay with you forever
'Cause you and me baby, we'll always be together

Solo
Quiet Chorus
Chorus

Maybe, Maybe

Written By: Ellerker

Maybe, Maybe

Verse:
Closed eyes, in the autumn rain,
Holding hands, never felt this way.
The wind blows, leaves from the trees,
Lungs fill up, with this steady breeze.

Biding my time, to ask myself,
Could we stay like this forever?
Whatever it takes to know myself,
And stay like this forever.

And she said...

Chorus:
Maybe, maybe,
Will you comfort me?
And baby, baby,
Get down on your knees.
Maybe, maybe,
We can take our time,
So, baby, baby,
Show me what you call love.

Verse:
You say that's all, it's enough for me.
Throw me your chances, I'll show you the city.
Lights out, on a thing called hate.
Time passes when you're running too late.

Taking my time, asking myself,
If we could stay like this forever.
Whatever it takes to force myself,
To make this last forever.

Then she said...

Lana

Written By: Ellerker

Lana

Verse:
Did you ever get to the point when you couldn't
See your hands in front of your face?
It's hard being great,
As life's one giant race.

Time passes by when you are normal,
But time's been kind to him, his face is still young.

Pre-Chorus:
He'll take you on,
Jump you in a giant step.
Fight for it all
When he's got nothing left.

He'll take you on,
Jump you in a giant step.
Second chance those regrets, yeah,
When he's got nothing left

And...

Chorus:
He lives,
In this time.
He fights,
For her heart.
It's hard,
To love her.
Someday's he think's he'll end it all but...

Verse:
Come has the point near
The end of this race.
He's down the road now
Still got lightning pace.

Fear is his fuel and he's got no real goal.
Fights for this planet, but it's love that makes him whole.

Pre-Chorus

Chorus

Middle 8

Adam (Spoken & Repeated):
People all around him,
People always searching,
No-one ever sees him,
No-one really knows him.

Nick (Sang Over the Top):
Searching on the edge of time he,
Takes it all the way he finds it.
Searching on the edge of time he,
Takes it all the way he finds it.

Chorus

You Know

Written By: Ellerker

You Know

Verse:
you know it's time we're waisting and I
really wanna learn a little more this time, said
i really wanna learn a little more this time

this second chance you've given me
I really wanna show you up this time, said
I really wanna show you up this time

Pre-Chorus:
When you run you think i know that youre sorry
But i don't, i don't, don't wanna think about it.
When you talk, don't wanna hear all your stories
cause i don't, i don't, don't wanna think about it.

Chorus:
'Cause you know, you know
it's over now
i know, it's the last thing i remember lately

Verse:
you know, there's nothing left to say, i
really wanna learn a little more this time, said
i really wanna learn a little more this time

you said there's more to life than this
I really wanna show you up this time, said
I really wanna show you up this time

Pre-Chorus

That it all comes crashing down and falling to the ground,
Then hits the waaaaaaaalll waaaaaaaalll
And then it all comes crashing down and falling to the ground,
Then hits the waaaaaaaalll waaaaaaaalll

It's getting better now,
Getting better now,
It's getting better now you're gone.

(Beautiful) Light Green Eyes

Written By: Ellerker

(Beautiful) Light Green Eyes

Verse:
I stop to park my car on the sunny side of the street.
It's not every day I go see girl's that I meet.
But something's different, something's right, something lights me up inside
Trouble's got me hear, so far, but it feel's so right.

Chorus:
No-one
Says it quite like you.
And nothing
Could ever pull me through
No-one
Could make me feel so nice,
Nothing quite says it like your beautiful, light-green eyes

Instrumental

Verse:
I've been slipping outside of love.
And we've been sharing our up-most feelings, to the sounds from above.
The contours of you face, sleeping dead against mine
The only thing that could take it's toll is time.

On My Own Again

Written By: Ellerker

On My Own Again...

Verse:
Lights out, I'm on my own again
Passed out, it's time to roll again.
You know me, You know me
All too much.....

Midnight, I'm drivig myself again,
Heart-beat, racing to yours again.
You want me, you want me
Way too much.....

Pre-Chorus:
When you run, you run away.
When you run, you run away.

Chorus:
You know you'll never see me when you talk like that
I never meant to hurt you or to call her back
But you own me, yeah you own me
You know you'll never see me when you talk like that
I never meant to hurt you or to call her back
But you own me, yeah you own me

Verse:
Road's closed and the foreshore's calling me,
False words and temptation's haunting me.
I know you, I know you
All too much.....

Lips touch, I'm feeling warm inside,
Guilty pleasures, can you see me run and hide.
I want you. I want you
Way too much.....

Pre-Chorus
Chorus

Middle 8:
I didn't mean it to mean so much this time
I didn't mean to hold her by myside
When I'm thinking, I'm thinking about you
But you're controling everything I dooooooooooooooo
