BandRockAlternative

Fake Elegance creatively combine modern electronic-synth sounding with expressive-delicate piano roulades, punchy-tasty rock guitar riffs, and sexy-charming female pop vocals. The elegance is fake but not the music.

Biography

Since their inception in 2005, Fake Elegance managed to earn the reputation of the live band playing positively charged and energetic music. In the beginning of summer 2008 the band’s "Beautiful Morning" track became the morning hit on the radio “Europa Plus Ukraine” and climbed to the top places in Ukrainian radio charts. Also, the significant step in the band development became the collaboration with the Ukrainian designer of fashion clothes Anna Sosnovska who created original stage costumes for the band.

In July 2009 Fake Elegance signed a record deal with NYC-based independent record label Sunset Records. The debut album is expected to be released by the end of September 2009.

Lyrics

Fake

Written By: Fake Elegance

[verse 1:]
i take what i want
i learn to be strong
don't care if it's wrong
coz i like to be so indie and alone
i lead and i leave
i lie and deceive
and you who belives
that it must be something more i can give
that it should be something else i can give
that it might be something more...

[chorus:]
fake smile
just the way to help me survive
in this world of a man
girl, you gotta learn how to pretend
fake tears
just the way to make 'em believe
that i'm a helpless child
come and make feel alright

[verse 2:]
i step over men
so vicious i am
i don't give a damn
about what is called morality, my friend
it's only a mask
so freak 'n' grotesque
fulfilling a task
giving me a power of illusion
yes, i have my power of illusion
common, feel my power, yeah

[bridge:]
fake smile
just the way to help me survive
in this world of a man
girl, you gotta learn how to pretend

Beautiful Morning

Written By: Fake Elegance

[Verse 1:]
Awaking from sleep this rainy morning
I wonder why I'm feeling so good
Is this because it's Sunday and I'm home or
Is this all happening just because of you?!
You're not rushing anywhere and it looks a bit unusual
Today you're gonna be all mine and this time it's no delusion

[Chorus:]
A rainy new day is dawning
But anyway it's
A beautiful morning
When you are with me
Let the rain keep on falling
Coz all that I see
Is just a beautiful morning
When you are here with me, oh!

[Verse 2:]
A smell of coffee coming from the kitchen
You always know what you have to do
To make me feel like I woke up in heaven
To make me wanna spend this morning with you
I'm not hesitating to let you stay for one more hour
I don't want you to leave now even if you get back with flowers

[Bridge:]
Never let me down
Never let me frown
Never let me forget about these
Raindrops on the glass
I don't wanna give away all the memories
Never let it go
Never let it blow
Never let me forget about this
Beautiful today
Never let me give away all the feelings
Never let me down
Never let me frown
Never let me forget about these
Raindrops on the glass
I don't wanna give away all the memories
Never let me forget about it...

Hello

Written By: Fake Elegance

[verse 1:]
when i see you once again
when i, i'm gonna hold your hand
i can't stop the beating
can't stop the shaking of my heart
it's all the same
when i just say your name
it sounds like the rain
washing all the pain away
just all the pain away
from my frustrated lonely face
but i can't find my way
back to you again
getting colder
you're getting colder, baby

[chorus:]
i just came to say hello
(if that's what you wanna hear)
i just came to let you know
(tell you what you do to me)
i don't wanna let you go
but i see i don't belong here

[verse 2:]
when you turn me down
you turn me down so hard
when you tear my soul apart
i can't stop from running
can't stop from crying out
the words i shouldn't say
what is the game you play?!
i will be ok
even if you loose your memory
and never ever anymore
recall my name
and never find your way
back to me again
but i'm here now
you see i'm here now, darling

[bridge:]
making wrong selection, ooh-ooh (x3)
excessive attraction, oh yeah (x3)
repeating same action, oh no (x3)
what should i do?!

[coda:]
you will remember me when you feel raindrops on your face
you will remember me when autumn comes from yesterday

Your Eyes Stripped

Written By: Fake Elegance

[Verse 1:]
"Who we are is what we do"
You whispered once in my ear
But do I really know you
The one who's lying near

I gently touch your face but I can't look inside your mind
I warm you in my arms but I can hardly melt the ice

[Chorus:]
Baby, this time may be
You can show me
Your eyes stripped and I
Will stay forever
Baby, this time may be
You can show me
Your eyes stripped and I
Will stay forever

[Verse 2:]
You sleep just like an angel
Am I with you in your dreams?
Sometimes you are a stranger
Sometimes you are confusing

I gently touch your face but I can't look inside your mind
I warm you in my arms but I can hardly melt the ice

[Bridge:]
You can tell me goodbye
But you can't deny
You're gonna stay just another, other lonely guy
And you've built these walls in vain
Don't close forever

Sunshine

Written By: Fake Elegance

[verse 1:]
so many days, so many long nights
you're just wasting time
on digging in your memories
please, stop to rewind!

ooh,ooh

if you could turn back time just right now
so what would you change?
if there was something bad
just forget
all you had
don't regret

[chorus:]
the sunshine is here
sleeping deep inside of you, ooh-ooh
you need to open your heart
and write your life from the start
the sunshine is here
wake it up inside of you, ooh-ooh
and see the colors around
keeping your feet on the ground
all again

[verse 2:]
so many nights, so many lond days
you still keep away
from all affairs and stupid nice games
you used to play

ooh,ooh

don't think if you dare to rebuild your
your world broken twice
it's gonna crush once more
like before
no, it won't
fall no more

[bridge:]
find the sunshine in yourself
just when you think you have lost
the whole desire to trust someone else
see the light right in yourself
you need to wake it up, now

Happy End

Written By: Fake Elegance

[Verse 1:]
You're sitting here
With memories of love
And scenes of envy
Tearing yourself with all that stuff
Why don't you hear me?
As if it's just no reason to let me go
At least, I've tried to say enough

I know that you
Threw out my fragrant clothes
So please be sure
That I have done the same with yours
And now it's over
My heart is under code you can't decipher
Forget, I've got protection safe

[Chorus:]
It's gonna be no other sequels
Such a happy end
All the parts are just too equal
For me not to understand
No more acting in soap operas
Scripting empty lines
You have told me all your stories
But the last words will be mine

[Verse 2:]
Go...
You can be on your own
And don't forget to
Delete my number on your phone
You've got to all my
Ignore lists and there's no way you can change it
Coz I don't need you anymore

Don't try to look
For me in those cafes
Where we were hiding
From rain and drinking hot latte
It all has gone now
And every second makes it much more distant
The past is all that still remains

[Bridge:]
You can't glu what doesn't match
No way you can put it as a whole
Or try to re-write from scratch
What had been written long time ago
Don't be so much confident
It's our happy, happy end
