BandRockPop

A CLOSE KNIT BAND WHO SHARE THE WRITING AND VOCAL CAPABILITIES,WHICH IS EVIDENT BY THEIR DIFFERENT YET INFECTIOUS MELODIC STYLES AND FROM ALL MEMBERS GROWING UP LISTEINING TO VARIOUS TYPES OF MUSIC FROM ELTON JOHN TO METALLICA AND FROM MANIC STREET PREACHERS TO THE DIVINE COMEDY.

Biography

We are a three piece band who have known each other all their lives. Coming from Athlone, a small town in the middle of Ireland,all we ever wanted to do was to write music and for as many people as possible to hear it. All members lived within a mile of each other, went to the same school, and share the same passion for music as each other. In a way we are a quite unique band where we are not relying or putting pressure on one member to write all the songs. All three write music, lyrics and sing which is very rare in todays musical climate.Our distinct vocal sounds can be heard on their debut ep, which has received plenty of air play on a variety of music stations in Ireland, since it was released in 2006. Songs such as "try" and "id be lost without you" show our different, yet infectious melodic styles which can only come from all members sharing the writing capabilities. With our ability to write songs,closeness as a group, and drive to succeed,Makewait will not give up on the only thing they have ever loved and enjoyed!MUSIC
Some interest was shown recently from Parlaphone U.K when one of their A&R guys got in touch.Currently in the process of organising a suitable recording studio,we hope to go recording in the near future.
We have also played support to the Blizzards and narrowly missed out on opening the midland music festival playing support to the Waterboys and Mundy to name a few.
We decided to use the name Makewait as we wanted to get a name that meant nothing.By doing this,we hope that when people hear the name Makewait in the future,it will mean alot to them.

Lyrics

real love

Written By: makewait

Its her time,you might think you should mind her
then they ask,why she standing alone

Chorus:
Shes waiting for the real love,the real love,the real love,
shes waiting for the real love,the real love the real love.

I seen her cry,does she thing of another
Be some time,before she goes there again

Repeat chorus

Bridge
Theres no need to lurk in the past
Theres a reason it didnt last
You will know when the time has come

repeat chorus

this person was not me

Written By: makewait

This was a face I did not recognise,
It was out of place, in everybodys eyes,
Deep down I longed to be myself again,
But by then I had lost belief,
This person was not me,

I turned my back on all that I had learned,
I saw the cracks show on the good name I had earned,
Inside I knew my life was worth much more,
But by then I had gone too deep,
This person was not me,

My minds been plagued by all the mistakes I've made,
I've tried to change but I'll always be the same,
In time I know these bad memories will fade,
But til then I must repeat,
This person was not me,
This person was not me,
This person was not me,

try

Written By: makewait

keep it all
you know il be alright
save your words,
cause youve lost all my time
not to blame,
dont bother with your lies,
change your ways,
and you might realise

that all you have to do was say the words im fine
but everthing you do just makes us less alike
when all you had to do was try

take the fall,its gonna be you or i
no matter what i can always say id try

when all you had to do was say the words im fine
but everthing you do just makes us less alike
when all you had to do was try
