BandRock

Peacekeeper is a gentleman rock band based out of Chicago. Our songs have a strong pop melodies, smooth grooves and plenty of charm. Our "gentleman rock" style means that we can tear a wild guitar solo and put on an energetic show, but we also like to keep it classy (for the ladies).

Biography

Peacekeeper is a four-piece band based out of Chicago that writes and performs gentleman rock, its own special brand of melodic pop rock.

Their live performances harken back to the wild performances early Bruce Springsteen and Warren Zevon, while tinged with the modern quirkiness of artists like Ryan Adams or the Flaming Lips.

Peacekeeper is a student of the Do-It-Yourself school, screen-printing their own apparel (t-shirts, hoodies, and panties!), shooting and editing their own music videos and self-recording and printing their own CDs, including their debut LP "Fireworks", their "Fresh Fruit" EP, and "Peacekeeper Live At the Gallery Cabaret".

With regional touring and more recording in the works, Peacekeeper is a band gaining momentum and sure to produce great things in the year to come.

Lyrics

Ship In A Bottle

Written By: Kevin Corcoran

I was harsh when I knew I should be kind
cut the rope when I should have towed the line
You were checking in while I was checking out
Cast me off into the waves behind the glass
hoist up the anchor and stow away my past
when I was cruel and I aimed at you

Sailing, oh I've been sailing
But I never knew what I had left behind.
Waiting, oh I've been waiting,
for a nearby ship to pass this way and find me

Ship In A Bottle, Ship In A Bottle,
Won't you take me home tonight
Yes I think the stars are bright enough to light the way back home
Ship In A Bottle, Ship In A Bottle
Won't you take me home tonight
Yes I think the stars are bright enough to light the way back home

Yes I remember all the crazy things I said,
and I remember when I crawled into your bed.
It was just a dream. That was as far as it went.
Smash the bottle and set me out to sea.
Turn the clock back to where its supposed to be.
Hoist the sails and bring my body home.

Sailing, oh I've been sailing
But I never knew what I had left behind.
Waiting, oh I've been waiting,
for a nearby ship to pass this way and find me

Ship In A Bottle, Ship In A Bottle,
Won't you take me home tonight
Yes I think the stars are bright enough to light the way back home
Ship In A Bottle, Ship In A Bottle
Won't you take me home tonight
Yes I think the stars are bright enough to light the way back home

New House

Written By: Kevin Corcoran

I think I'll rearrange the furniture
build myself a new house
I need a city dwelling studio
I need a cradle for this country mouse
I need to fill that house with things with multi-colored wings
I need to paint the walls in hues to change my point of view
maybe you'll paint something too

I'll have you come
to visit me
in our new house
down by the sea
And if you'd like
we'll tear it down
and build ourselves
something bigger this time around

I'm thinking something on the Riveria
might quench my thirst for romance
or maybe something near the countryside
commissioned by the King of France
I need a little bungalow where I can play my music low
I need a side street with a park, somewhere where its dark
you can see a tiny spark

I'll have you come
to visit me
in our new house
down by the sea
And if you'd like
we'll tear it down
and build ourselves
something bigger this time around

I think I'll journey down to Africa
and give myself a new name
I think I'll buy myself a holiday
and make myself the King of Spain
I think I'll gather up the crowd and keep 'em nice and loud
I'll think I'll vanish in the night to give 'em all a fright
wouldn't that be quite a sight?

I'll have you come
to visit me
in our new house
down by the sea
And if you'd like
we'll tear it down
and build ourselves
something bigger this time around
And if you'd like
to visit me
in our new house
down by the sea
And if you'd like
we'll tear it down
and build ourselves
something bigger this time around
