The music is guitar driven, melodic rock with catchy hooks that keep people humming the tunes for days. Paperboy Jack is a mainstream, radio-friendly rock band that is somewhat of a Jimmy Eat World meets No Doubt and old-school Blondie.

Paperboy Jack has released a DVD video of their first single "Pause", which showcases Amanda's soft and soothing voice in the verses and powerful, edgy side in the choruses.

Corporate Whore built a loyal fan base in Boston, Denver, Los Angeles, and San Francisco . They recorded a top quality 11-song album at world-renowned Ardent Studios (REM, 3 Doors Down, Gin Blossoms) in July 2003. “Runaway”, the first single off the CW album is a solid modern rock song that is being played on indie and college radio stations across the country. The band has been featured on LAUNCH, Yahoo’s music site and was invited to play a showcase at SXSW in Austin in March 2004. M Productions has listed CW as one of “LA’s Top 25 Bands to Watch.”

Now Paperboy Jack, the all-star lineup from Corporate Whore and Amanda Sonic are ready to roll.

Lyrics

Pause

Written By: Paperboy Jack

I pause when it rains
And look down at the sky
Where everybody knows
And no one questions why

I pause when its blame
That ties you up in lies
Where everybody’s told
And no one questions

Pre-chorus
A secret told but not let go
A little testing of the old
A solid ground that sinks below
With no time left to unfold

Chorus
How can we – not still see
Our lives our blind with joy and not free
We will delete our memories
And reach the point of bliss delivery
How can we - not still be
To a place where we can break free
We will search for the right key
To reach a point of bliss delivery
Bliss delivery

I pause when its tears
That drown me in demise
A world that feels no cold
Cause no one stops to try

I pause when its fear
That tears you up inside
A world that’s growing old
And no one stops to

Prechorus
Chorus

Bridge (Am C D G)

Quiet Chorus
Big Chorus

OK, Alright

Written By: Paperboy Jack

OK, Alright
 
Verse 1:
You never know what I am thinking
You never care what’s on my mind
You told me once that you would love me
I never thought it’d end in time
 
PreChorus:
Days come and go without you
Loving me, it’s all that I knew
Your time has come to find your - place in line
 
Chorus:
That’s ok – that’s alright
I’m suddenly exposed, contrite
I’ve got a letter from a-noth-er - one – who - cares
 
That’s ok – that’s alright
Let’s step away and never fight
I’m all consumed with love - all repaired
 
Verse 3:
You never saw it coming, did you?
You never thought I’d free my life
You’re too wrapped up in all your matters
I’ve got to go and fantasize
 
PreChorus:
Days come and go without you
Loving me, it’s all that I knew
Your time has come to find your - place in line
 
Chorus:
That’s ok – that’s alright
I’m suddenly exposed, contrite
I’ve got a letter from another one who cares
 
That’s ok – that’s alright
Let’s step away and never fight
I’m all consumed with love, and all repaired
 
Bridge:
She sat and stared, alone tonight
Not knowing how

Never Enough

Written By: Paperboy Jack


NEVER ENOUGH
 
Verse
I’m not gonna be afraid in a place I never thought that I’d be. I’m not gonna be afraid, just keep an eye on me.
 
Pre-chorus
I live my life. I take it as it comes and I don’t mean to let you down.
 
Chorus
It’s just never enough for you. I’ve done all that I possibly could for you.
So can you please tell me what I am to do – So that I can make it up to you!
 
Verse
I was crying in the hallway, my forehead was resting on my knees.
I was crying in the hallway, praying to God to end this misery.
 
Pre-Chorus
Chorus
