Biography

Euromart was formed in the late fall of 2004 with the goal of competing at the legendary Cain's Ballroom in a statewide battle of the bands. After submitting a homemade two song demo, the band was selected as one of the seven bands to compete out of 50 that entered. Euromart debuted at the Cain's, performing to a sold out crowd of around 2,000. As a result of the buzz surrounding the show and a solid live performance, Euromart gained a good deal of exposure and a growing local following.

What had started as a single show project was gaining momentum. By the summer of 2005, Euromart was opening for premier regional acts such as Steven Speaks, The Hero Factor, and Jackson Waters, consistently bringing a larger crowd than the headlining bands. After recording an EP in a mere 18 hours with engineer/producer Dave Victorine, Euromart sold the entire initial run of the EP (250 discs) in just two shows. To close out their summer before heading to college, Euromart performed a farewell show to well over 1,000 fans at Tulsa's newest outdoor venue, The Riverwalk Crossing.

Currently Euromart continues to play out while crafting new songs and melodies despite being away at college.

Lyrics

27th

Written By: Ben Rector

there's a boy who's growing old
a woman's love is all he knows
but what now? at 65
can he show for a wasted life

and as streetlights take him home
he feels his life he feels the cold
and as he closes his eyes
his heart breaks and now he cries

and so time rolls
over him now
for soon, he'll be gone
and all of these years
that he's been wasting
his heart pays
for every single one

so take all of me
because that's all i need

he says but me
i'm just a simple man
i've got no complex life
no complex plans, oh but you see
there ain't much to take
oh but i've spent too many days
just waiting for this to end

and so time rolls
over me now
for soon, i'll be gone
and all of these years
that i've been wasting
my heart pays for every single one

so take all of me
because that's all i need
so Jesus roll on over me
because that's all i need

don't let it be that i am too afraid
spend this whole life looking back
because i see this two bit game we play
and sir i've had enough of that

is this what you rang me for
because i've thought in loops around
and of this thing which i'm not sure
precious love and doubts abound

as i leave this place
with my heart held high
then i'll see this world
with my own two eyes

though a broken man
captive but alive
like a woman's charm
you fill me inside

don't you tell me what to think
forced ideas won't weather time
don't you tell me how i need to be
it's only figured out inside

many wonder what i'm doing here
given answers unexplained
take time asking what do i believe
this life shouldn't be a maze

from a cynic's mind
articulate to sound
then to a poet's pen
and then to ears around

but don't take notice in
these simple words alone
but to why they began
and what truth spurred them on

so let me leave this place
with my heart held high
let me see this world
with my own two eyes

you say that all i've got to do
is just believe
open up this heart, open up these arms
receive this peace

but i'm jaded and i'm fading
slowly away
i'm done pushing through this mess
would you let me know my name

would you let me know
who i am
would you let me know
who i am

you say that all she's got to do
is just believe
open up her heart open up those arms
receive this peace
but she's jaded and she's fading
oh so slow
from her knees she cries
through teary eyes she says
jesus take her home

would you let me know
who i am
would you let me know
who i am
