Karthartic

BandRockAdult Contemporary

Welcome to the Karthartic web site, our music is described as atmospheric blend of modern U2 meets 70’s Pink Floyd with a heavy serving of melody and soul, were not your normal band, we hope to create art as much as music, songs that are meant to make you feel, think, hope and cry.

Biography

Karthartic history: Aaron and Peter were introduced one summer evening at a BBQ and while the party was warming up, a few guitars were found, and some drinks was downed and that jam became a turning point for both, as the night went on it seemed like the pair had been playing together for years not moments. That first meeting was so encouraging that it demanded more at the first writing session a few days later the song shine was created, and as further songs developed, idea of Karthartic was born, songs that heal.As can often happen what originally started out, just as a song writing project became larger as other people were attracted to the nucleus. First Aaron found Jamie through a newspaper advertisement; and then Ben who was playing in another band with James at the time; and finally Trevor who had met Bens brother at an instrument-making program.

She Laid Her Hands

Verse 1
She use to talk about Jesus,
Like he’s a family friend
He use to come round for dinner
Every now and again
she had his picture in bathrooms
she had his picture in halls
she had a few thousand
all over the walls

Chorus
Oh. . . she laid her hands
Upon the weary
Oh. . . she laid her hands
Upon my brow

Verse 2
She use to come down to my place
We’d share a bottle of wine
Maybe waste a few hours
And empty our minds
Her soul was so cherished
And her heart was so pure
She use to lay down in my place
Feel the comfort the inside

Chorus
Oh. . . she laid her hands
Upon the weary
Oh. . . she laid her hands
Upon my brow

Bridge
Mary, Mary, call my name
call for Jesus, ease my pain

Chorus
Oh she laid her hands
Upon the weary
Oh she laid her hands
Upon my brow

Verse 3
I can here her this morning
She’s walking round up stairs
She calls out for coffee
Dancing in her underwear
Spends some time in the garden
Pruning the weeds
Healing the damaged
the people like me

Chorus
Oh. . . she laid her hands
Upon the weary
Oh. . . she laid her hands
Upon my brow

Bridge
Mary, Mary, call my name
call for Jesus, ease my pain

Chorus
Oh she laid her hands
Upon the weary
Oh she laid her hands
Upon my brow

Upon A Christmas tree

V1.
Takes a photo of her baby
in a frosted photo frame
with words that say my darling,
born 1982
now she’ll never hold her darling
As the colour starts to drain
There’s a photo of her baby
There’s cold December rain
Ch.
Now she hangs upon
A Christmas tree
Like angels often do
and she hides between the tinsel
and she’ll break your heart in two
V2.
We’re a family in a picture
We’re a family in name
After all the things she’s lost
it’s just one more hidden cost
of her darling in the frame
There’s a photo of her baby
There’s cold December rain
Ch.
V3.
Now her true loves gone
five more men moved on
each one much the same
her youngest stayed a while
but she wasn’t quite that brave
There’s a photo of her baby
There’s cold December rain
Ch.
Ch.
