Jonny Karklins is an immortal from Latvia who has used his good looks, amazing swordsmanship and extraoridnary musical ability to propell himself through hundreds of years of success dating all the way back to the dark ages. Originally royalty, he left the motherland during the roman crusades, for fear of being witch hunted. He has played a big part throughout music history while managing to remain hidden from the larger world. Like Jonny K says "I pretty much invented every genre there is" "I was the one who told Ray Charles to borrow Gospel, I coached Elvis, I served with Johnny Cash, I taught James Brown how to get back on the good foot, but my personal favourtie was encouraging Kool Herc to Loop a record live, he didn't want to do it but with a little encouragement I managed to single handedly invent Hip Hop". 'Chasing The Sun'. Is the First single under the name Long Road South. Written By Jonny K, feat Chris K. Have a listen but be warned this song will make you want to get naked. Described by Rolling Stone as a feel good hit for the summer. Chris says "It's a song to drink beer too" In keeping with Latvian tradition Jonny K has a slave and he returns this time around under the name Dubsie PR "the publicity machine". He says "would people please listen to these songs or he will be chained and whipped". Dubsie PR says check out the next single Catch 22 it's catchy.

Lyrics

The Rain Will Fall This Time Tomorrow

Written By: Jonny Karklins

INTRO (TALKING) “there hearing what they wanna hear, there not really listening to what I’m telling them, that’s like… its bad………….im..... sad”

“no I don’t feel its out of control I think its to in control, there’s no excitement, there’s no … there’s no passion, there’s no like…. Its just like ground hog day everyday you know…. Its really boring”(Britney Spears)

VERSE 1: I don’t pretend to know you, but I seem to feel you somehow,I see your face on the
tv screen, plastered in every magazine, Your always in some trouble no matter which way you turn,People only see your money, what you’ve got when all you
need is just a friend

TALKING:“and when you tell people that, and when I tell them the way I feel Its like they hear me but they are really not listening”(Britney Spears)

CHORUS:The rain will fall this time tomorrow. Its something you can bet on for sure. The rain will fall this time tomorrow,but tomorrow might not be so terrible

TAlKING:“its just like you cant really go there in a complete state of happiness because your scared that its gonna be taken away.. You know, so Its better just not
to feel anything at all and to have hope then feel the other Way” (Britney Spears)

VERSE 2:Your feeling all so sad and lost, nobody understands your lost, Just trying to get through everyday, making up plans to run away, Tomorrow feels like it never
comes the battle lost and never won, Hiding behind your makeup, your trying hard to fake that your ok

TALKING:“even when you go to jail there’s always the time that you know that your gonna get out… you know”(Britney Spears)

CHORUS:The rain will fall this time tomorrow. Its something you can bet on for sure. The rain will fall this time tomorrow,but tomorrow might not be so terrible

ENDING:tomorrow might not be so terrible x 3

Without You

Written By: Jonny Karklins

VERSE 1:Without you, without love, Nothings true, nothings wrong,
Without hearts, without song
Without dreams, aint no life

CHORUS:Without you we fade away, Like the starting of the end,
Without you we just cant be We cant live in harmony...Without you….

VERSE 2: Without you, there cant be no love,You are truth, you are love, You are hope in our hearts
We are not, we are not, without you

CHORUS:Without you we fade away Like the starting of the end,
Without you we just cant be, We cant live in harmony Without you…. Without you…

OUTRO:We are not strong, we are not strong, we are not strong without you. We are not strong, we are not strong, we are not strong without you. We are not strong, we are not strong, we are
not strong without you. We are not strong, we are not strong, we are
not strong without you....

Without you…..

Catch 22

Written By: Jonny Karklins

INTRO:Who’s gonna save your ass when your in tight shit. Who’s gonna help you out when your losing grip.Who’s gonna break the bank and spend all your money.
Who’s gonna smoke your last cigarette.

VERSE 1:Living with her must be hard it seems, you said it feels like a bad disease, that you would rather just be alone. It seems she always puts you through your steps, Watching you carefully, thinks your gonna forget, Sometimes you just wish that she was gone.

PRE CHOR:Maybe you’ve had enough, its time to move on
You think about the situation all the time

CHORUS:Who’s gonna save your ass when your in tight shit.Who’s gonna help you out when your losing grip. Who’s gonna break the bank and spend all your money.
Who’s gonna smoke your last cigarette.

VERSE 2:Sometimes everything feels so breezy but its not always that easy, Times will change and times go by so fast. You give and she takes that’s how it works, She’s always commenting on the style of your shirt. Making it very hard to face the day

PRE CHOR:Maybe you’ve had enough, its time to move on
You think about the situation all the time

CHOR:Who’s gonna save your ass when your in tight shit.Who’s gonna help you out when your losing grip. Who’s gonna break the bank and spend all your money.
Who’s gonna smoke your last cigarette.

INSTRUMENTAL

CHORUS:Who’s gonna save your ass when your in tight shit. Who’s gonna help you out when your losing grip. Who’s gonna break the bank and spend all your money.
Who’s gonna smoke your last cigarette.

Repeat Chorus.

As Hope Fades Away

Written By: Jonny Karklins

Intro: As hope fades away (away)x5

verse 1: Hiding and sliding, I'm just surviving, I need somebody to call on me, twisting and turning I'm really hurting, every things fading away

I'm bottling and holding the pain thats been causing, grief for a lifetime and a thousand more. I'm just forgotten messed up and so broken, I wear my heart on my sleeve.

Chorus: As hope fades away(away)
I'm holding on to the pain
I just need a way(away)
To break from these chains
And start all again

Verse 2:Stuck in this prison, my life Ive been living, my tears on the floor I cant take anymore. I'm tired of all this duration of pain like a note with the longest sustain

Erie and scary this nightmares not ending, nobody understands whats in my head, I cant keep mistaking this dream that i'm hating, these days start to feel all the same

Chorus: As hope fades away(away)
I'm holding on to the pain
I just need a way(away)
To break from these chains
And start all again

Outro: Start all again x 4

You Did Me Wrong

Written By: Jonny Karklins

Verse 1: Dead in love my souls gone bye,
i'm staring into the sky
your leaving like the speed of light
travelling out of sight

Bridge: oh now my heart is broken
I find it hard to breathe
with every thought unspoken
what should I believe

Chorus: With all my love and lies, oh I guess this is goodbye
I hear you roaring out like thunder and its killing
me inside,
and theres no daylight on this cold and lonely night
first go left and then go right, woah you robbed me
of my life

you did me wrong
oh you did me wrong

Verse 2: I feel like i'm lost at sea
and I just wanna go home
I feel like love has died on me
and now i'm all alone

Bridge: oh now my heart is broken
I find it hard to breathe
with every thought unspoken
what should I believe

Chorus: With all my love and lies, oh I guess this is goodbye
I hear you roaring out like thunder and its killing
me inside,
and theres no daylight on this cold and lonely night
first go left and then go right, woah you robbed me
of my life

you did me wrong

woah you did me wrong(x3)

Bridge: now my heart is broken
I find it hard to breathe
with every thought unspoken
what should I believe

INTERLUDE

Chorus: Woah with all my love and lies, oh I guess this is
goodbye,
I hear you roaring out like thunder and its killing
me inside,
and theres no daylight on this cold and lonely night
first go left and then go right, woah you robbed me
of my life

you did me wrong

oh you did me wrong(x3)

Im coming home to you

Written By: Jonny Karklins

I still remember all the times we spent together
running wild in the fields we were at play
we used to say that wed be best friens forever
everything has chaged since you've gone away

your so far far away
your so far away
I just wanna hear you say

I remember how the sun shined when it was stormy
through the hard times and pain you just wouldnt tell
at night I lle awake and I cant stop thinking
that life would be better with you around

your so far far away
your so far away
I just wanna hear you say

Im coming home to you
cause I miss you x4

your so far far away
your so far away
I just wanna hear you say

Im coming home to you
cause I miss you x8
