Biography

My One Regret was a band from Sanford. Maine and they were beginning to get some recognition within the local scene, but just as things were beginning to take off the band broke up. After a year, then Drummer now Rhythm Guitarist/Song Writer Gary Tilley Jr. continued his dream of having a band and following his passion. Through countless failed attempts, he switched from drums to guitar because he couldn't find anyone to write the way he wanted. Under several different band names Gary began to build up his camp. The first musician to join was Kade Varner, a young man with lots of ambition and drive who had moved from Illinois to New Hampshire and wanted to begin playing bass. With no experience Gary was skeptical but he gave Kade a chance and Kade proved his worth. The next person to join up with Kade and Gary was Leonard Kolosha. A drummer who unbeknownst to Gary was already part of his circle of friends though they had never met. Leo quickly became close with Gary and Kade and showed a lot of promise and dedication. The next part was the hardest finding that second guitarist. While Gary was writing and looking for people former My One Regret Lead Guitarist Michael Bolton was acting as a stand in lead guitarist until the band could find a official lead guitarist. After a few months ex vocalist of My One Regret Randy Littlefield came to audition as the lead guitarist and brought back the intensity the band needed. The same time Randy joined the band My One Regret also got a new vocalist Jonny Rino who also filled out the sound. Sadly a week after the band was whole again, drummer Leonard Kolosha had to quit the band due to financial issues. So after months of trying out drummers to no avail, Gary again switched back to drums and Michael Bolton officially rejoined the band as a second lead guitarist. So this is the rebirth of My One Regret. After having some vocalists in the band and them not be an exact fit, the band stumbled upon vocalist Matt Trainor who for years wanted to be a part of the band and finally got his chance and blew everyone away. Unfortunately shortly after Matt became the perminant vocalist for the band, Bassist Kade Vaner decided to leave the band and move back home to Illinois so again the band holds firm but we are seeking a bassist at this time, we wish kade the best in all he does and he will be missed. So this is how My One Regret came to be, countless misfortune created this band and this is what makes us such a tight group of musicians and friends.

Now My One Regret is a band from Manchester, New Hampshire and we are currently in the process of re-recording our demo. We have clips uploaded of both the old demo cd's. Stay tuned lots of big things happening.

My One Regret is also Endorsed by SilverFox Drumsticks we love them so much and you all should try them.

Lyrics

Days of Despair

Written By: Randy Littlefield of My One Regret

“Days of Despair”

I’m becoming that which I hate,
A forced conviction to any faith,
I strain my eyes to see,
Only the darkness left it me.
Born of sin and strength,
‘I’ll fight my way out once again,’
I say to myself only in vain,

Your words are nothing but
Lies inside,
So Speak softly to the
Ones you hold dear,
For someday this life will take them all away,

All that I’ve ever had,
Was a ghost of your memory,
A picture, a whisper
But someday I will take all that away.

Now in these days of despair,
I’ve witnessed all, no stranger to dare
The devil other than me.
So I have come to realize,
They have all disappeared,
But only because,
The only true evil is in me,

So now I’ll forge my own path,
With this life
Straight through the hearts of those who
Doubt all I am,
You are no exception,
This is worth it,

All that I’ve ever had
Was a ghost of your memory
A picture, a whisper
But someday I will take all that away.

In my mind I’ve only had myself,
In the end I’ll only have myself,
Alone at last, broken like before,
I’ll piece by piece these fragile hands,
And fix this hopeless man,
Someday, someday.

Someday is someday far off,
Until then I’ll scream our your name,
And sing the truth of pain
Until then I’ll scream out your NAME!,
And sing the truth of PAIN!

Your words are nothing but
Lies inside,
So speak softly to the
One you hold dear,
For someday this life will take them all away.

Angel With Shredded Wings

Written By: Randy Littlefield of My One Regret

“Angel With Shredded Wings”

Intro-
You said you would not let me fall.
Liar, Liar, Liar. You fucking liar.

Verse-
Bloodshot eyes,
Many reasons why.
Kills this pain,
My Never ending rage.
This addiction calls,
Try to make me fall.
Do you feel like me,
Will you ever see.

Pre chorus-
Crush these thoughts, take this pain,
Help me while, I'm still sane,
Breathe a breath, break a bone,
once again, left alone,
I have the cure, I see through,
trust me it, is not you,
Once again, left alone,
Tonight I, make it known,

Chorus-
Open your arms to me,
To set this black heart free,
The demons rise to sing,
For this angel with shredded wings.

Bridge-
Where were you when my wings gave in,
When I felt the depths crush me beneath the weight of the world,
Where were you when I needed you the most,
I was wrong to think that things would change.

Verse-
A silent martyr I've become, eternally numb to the
warmth of the sun, I'd give anything to feel
again, I'd do anything to feel your touch again.
It's not your fault, don't worry.
But please don't watch me destroy myself,

Pre chorus-
Crush these thoughts, take this pain,
Help me while, I'm still sane,
Breathe a breath, break a bone,
once again, left alone,
I have the cure, I see through,
trust me it, is not you,
Once again, left alone,
Tonight I, make it known,

Chorus-
Open your arms to me,
To set this black heart free,
The demons rise to sing,
For this angel with shredded wings.

Solos-

Ending-
I've given up, you win, I can't escape this pain,
I've seen the truth, It's my secret to hide,
It will never fall on your deaf ears.
Another chapter closes, on a dark new day.

We Speak Braille

Written By: Gary Tilley Jr of My One Regret

“We Speak Braille”

Intro:
YEAAAAAAAAAH!!
Can’t see me, can’t hear me, you can, only feel me
Can’t see me, can’t hear me, you can, only feel me
Hold on tightly please don’t lose me
Eternal darkness can’t see clearly
What’d you say I can not hear you
Life long deafness takes a toll too

Verse 1:
What’s this I feel right in front of me
Strange mass of complex features
Fingertips begin to decipher
To make know what is this creature

I feel the eyes as they look at me
Even though them I can not see
Their screeches feel like an earthquake
Not sure how much I can take

Bridge:
They, can not, take, what I lack

Pre Chorus 1:
They can never see what I see
They can never hear what I hear
They can try to feel what I feel
But I doubt that they can feel it
They can never see what I see
They can never hear what I hear
They can try to feel what I feel
But I doubt that they can feel it
They are, Empty, Heartless, Soulless Creatures

Chorus:
All these creatures want to do, is break you down
All these creatures live to do, is make you feel worthless
We Speak Braille
We Speak Braille

(Drum Break)

Verse 2:
Endless trial I need to fight through
Even though I cant see or hear them
I know that I can overcome
Any obstacle in front of me

Cant waste the time that’s been given me
Treated like I am a handicap
That label never has fit me
Follow now and they will surely see

Bridge alt:
My, Will, Cant not be, Broken

Pre Chorus alt:
They can never do what I do
They can never be what I be
They can never take this from me
This existence where I feel free
They can never do what I do
They can never be what I be
They can never take this from me
This existence where I feel free
They are, Empty, Heartless, Soulless Creatures

Chorus end:
All these creatures want to do, is break you down
All these creatures live to do, is make you feel worthless
We Speak Braille
We Speak Braille
SPEAK BRAILLE TO ME!

Tongue of The Liar

Written By: Randy Littlefield of My One Regret

"Tongue of The Liar"

Intro-
This world is fraught with agony,
So I'll take it upon myself to light the fire,
And hold humanity's fate in my hands,
Should we be so weak as to never believe in ourselves?
Keep running, and you'll just die tired.

Verse 1-
I've sewn the seeds of destruction with bloodied hands,
The reaper dawns his mask, made of ash, just as I am,
A calling of death to be reborn, ask yourself beforehand,

Verse 2-
Should you flee or just accept deliverance,
As the beast bellows above, I call out for his name,
Yet he does not answer my plea's,
Why has he forsaken me.

Verse 3-
This cannot be,
I have not yet begun to sing.
And the darkness envelopes me within.
I know now of my foolish self-destruction.

Pre chorus-
Oblivion embraces those who still fight,
Yet we would rather believe that might makes right.

Chorus-
To be afraid is to live amongst the stars,
So ascend and overcome your unneeded grace.
Life is too beautiful to give away,
Promise you will never throw it away.

Verse 1
Taking a life, so second-nature, so hypocritical,
These are the ways of ruin, set it stone through,
the betrayal of logic and evolution

Verse 2-

Why has he forsaken me.

Verse 3-
This cannot be,
I have not yet begun to sing.
And the darkness envelopes me within.
I know now of my foolish self-destruction.

Pre chorus-
Oblivion embraces those who still fight,
Yet we would rather believe that might makes right.

Chorus-
To be afraid is to live amongst the stars,
So ascend and overcome your unneeded grace.
Life is too beautiful to give away,
Promise that you will never throw it away.

Drum Solo

Chorus-
To be afraid is to live amongst the stars,
So ascend and overcome your unneeded grace.
Life is too beautiful to give away,
Promise you will never throw it away.

Malfaesance

Written By: Gary Tilley Jr of My One Regret

“Malfeasance”

Verse 1:
The world is lost, falling deeper and deeper
Taught to mistrust, never let your guard down
What kind of existence is this, where friends become foes
Where judge and jury, can be bought
The innocent suffer, while the guilty go free
Confession is pointless, when you just do it again

Chorus:
Truth soon to be extinct, there’s no reserve for words
A broken record spewing, the same fucking lies
Over and over, destroying the trust of the new ones
What you say breeds contempt, and the cycle starts again

Verse 2:
Falsify the evidence, its completely evident
That the truths you hold, are not the ones
On which we’re built, you have your own set of rules
Simple rules don’t apply to you and your kind

Chorus:
Truth soon to be extinct, there’s no reserve for words
A broken record spewing, the same fucking lies
Over and over, destroying the trust of the new ones
What you say breeds contempt, and the cycle starts again

Lead Sections:
Welcome, To your end
Your time is up, go ahead…
Do your best, to talk it out
I’ve heard it all, you’ve said it before…
But this time, I know the truth
You are the corrupt and we’re the cure…

Ending:
This world is lost
