BandFolk

Songs based on experiences rather that fiction, provoking the listener to think about the lyrics as apposed to just hearing the music.

Biography

Began writing songs about 20 years ago, using the trials of life as well as an introspective outlook onto the world as motivation. Influences vary but I feel that songs can just manifest themselves out of a single thought or action.

Lyrics

Falling Down

Written By: Kevin Neal

Made the grade, made it farther that they
ever planned to go
Never knew this could be done.
People change, slow you down or help you out no one knows
Searching always for that one

falling down now
to the ground now

watch the change, saw it comming from the corner of my eye
suprise your falling to your knees
pick it up start it over now from the beginning
make it last until the end

i dont know the reason for it
no one read the book to me
i cant answer all the questions
no one's here and no one sees

pointed out from inside the maze that you call my mind
never knew it could be done
not quite safe shadows chase the light as it tries to smile
so much for that special one

i dont know the reason for it
no one read the book to me
i cant answer all the questions
no one's here and no one sees

make it on your own if you can
set your sites on better days
dont ride my tail I'm still fallin
stuck in my old stubborn ways

Need to know

Written By: Kevin Neal

Am I supposed to see through those blinds you hang in front of me?
Secrets buried deep there hiding in your eyes
All that isn’t said is everything that I thought it would be
Making sense of some things filtered through your lies

Laugh out loud and talk against anything that I have to say
It doesn’t matter if you hear whets on my mind
Up and down we go circling closer soon to fade away
Happiness we lived is nowhere I can find

You need to know
I can’t stay here and smile
You need to know
This times been coming for a while

Everything keeps changing
And my heart keeps breaking
All I know is this cant go away

Is it over now walk alone in silence through the night?
Sometimes wishing for another chance to fly
Too little too late someone once said and maybe they were right
Sit and listen to the silence through the cries

You need to know
I can’t stay here and smile
You need to know
This times been coming for a while

Everything’s still changing
And my hearts still breaking
All I know is this cant go away

You can’t see me
Clawing out from the inside
You can’t feel me
Tearing through the lies you hide
You don’t know this weight I feel keeping down my pain
You can’t control this as I spiral slowly down

Redone

Written By: Kevin Neal

Sometimes I wonder if I am meant to be
Do I need to live or be set free?
I don’t realize that I had everything
Now it’s gone and I am left with
Nothing in my head but misery

I walk alone now every night and day
I can’t feel my legs they melt away
Should I let you go out of my mind?
Did I find out?

I don’t realize that imp awake
I feel like vie been sleeping all these days
Everyone around is in my way
And I want to go

Wind me up now like a broken watch
Peek around the corner and I won’t get lost
I don’t feel alone now
When you’re by my side

I don’t know if imp alive or dead
All these visions I have trapped in my head
Everyone around me lies inside
I don’t know if I can.
