Biography

MY SWEET RED is an acoustic/alt. rock band outside of the Philadelphia region that has created a unique sound with their vibrant energy and diversity. The band’s musical arc can be attributed to their honest, heart-felt songwriting.

My Sweet Red recorded their first album in 2005 in their hometown of Pottstown, Pennsylvania. The six song demo With or Without You is the culmination of a lifetime of musical influences from brothers Brett and Eric, and brothers Phil and Nate. The Pottstown Mercury noted the demo as an “enchanting mix of emotionally charged lyrics and acoustics”.

My Sweet Red continues to add breadth to their songwriting as they finish recording their first full-length album and play shows in and out of the Philadelphia region.

Lyrics

Up & Down

Written By: My Sweet Red

Shame keeps on falling down
most of all the reasons we’re alone, alone
Pain is just a hand me down
jumps from me to you just like we’re stones, we’re stones

Shame keeps on falling down
most of all the reasons we’re alone, alone
Pain is just a hand me down
jumps from me to you just like we’re stones, we’re stones

Take it from me
its not all its made out to be so I’m

Following my head around
when its up and down
For all the times that I couldn’t count
when its up and down

Lies are just a person’s way
of keeping who they are inside, inside
Losing lope is for all those
who lost out on themselves although they tried, they tried

Take it from me
its not all its made out to be so I’m

Following me head around
when its up and down
For all the times that I couldn’t count
when its up and down

Ordinary Day

Written By: My Sweet Red

Just another boring day
Same time, same year, same place
Yea, I think I’m in the mood to lose my way tonight

So sick of this routine
Need a change of scenery
Yea, I think I’m in the mood to lose my way tonight

This is an ordinary day
I’m tired of living life this way
I think I need a change of pace
On this ordinary day

Find a truth behind the lines
Try to see it eye to eye, this time
Yea, I think I’m in the mood to lose my way tonight

Sick of talking, calling people on the phone
To the point that we’re afraid to leave our homes
What’s the point in never crossing the unknown?

This is an ordinary day
I’m tired of living life this way
I think I need a change of pace
On this ordinary day

And we’ll live like the worlds on fire
No they can’t stop us now
And we’ll live like the worlds on fire
No they can’t stop us now

Giving You Away

Written By: My Sweet Red

So you made a mistake, but you covered up so well
And the darkness that surrounds you makes it easier to tell
That somehow you’ll understand, you weren’t meant to seize the day
Hold on take a breath prepare for the worst

I’m giving you away, you’re so far away

And all the friends you thought you had, pulled the knives out from their backs
Everything is breaking down; watch now their slipping through the cracks
I can’t say I really blame you, tomorrow is better than today
But the best part of you went out that door as you watched me walk away

I’m giving you away, you’re so far away
