Firme

BandRockReggae

Sublime crossed with Elvis Costello. Sprinkle in some Poncho Sanchez and some Voodoo Glow Skulls. Party hard til dawn.

Biography

Latin Ska-Punk band grows up. Plays reggae-influenced rock with the occasional salsa-cumbia breakdown. Raised in a tough eastside San Jose neighborhood, Firme proudly maintains a hard edge that shines through in infectious high-energy live shows.

Lyrics

Conversation

Written By: Tommy Sasso

We are just
Drinking and having an innocent
Conversation
But I'm thinking about when we
Had relations
And wondering if we're ever gonna
Do our thing again

You look at me and you say no
You say no
You say no
Even when I tell you I miss you so
Then you say maybe

Stop messin'
With my head
Stop messin'
With my head

You say
Well maybe in a million years
Maybe after a hundred beers
But I see that twinkle in your eye
And I can see the quiverin' in your thighs
You take my hand and you're
In my car
In my house
In my bed
In my soul
In my head

Stop messin'
With my head
Stop messin'
With my head

[girl's voice]
Ooh I would never do
Anything to hurt you boy
I only wanted to make
My intentions known
Ooh I could never do
A thing like that to you
But did you ever think
That maybe it's you

Stop messin'
With my head
Stop messin'
With my head
