Biography

"When it's done well, garage rock delivers visceral thrills with tight, no-bullshit impact. The parameters are narrow and familiar, but the effects can be oh so satisfying. Oakland quartet the Pentacles excel at these garage-rock maneuvers, but unlike many in the style, they emphasize immediately infectious melodies over abrasiveness and rawness." Dave Segal "The Stranger"

Lyrics

That_Girl_Weighs_Heavy_On_Your_Mind

Written By: Jeff Halley

she always tells you
that you're doing her wrong

that girl weighs heavy on your mind

it's gonna hurt her
but you've gotta move on

that girl weighs heavy on your mind

you've got to make her pack up her things
and send her on her way
take back your ring
and send her on her way

you won't want to
but you should
you won't want to
but you should

she's a broken record
with that same old song

that girl weighs heavy on your mind

gotta turn her over
or you've gotta move on

don't think too much about
what you're gonna say
take back your ring
and send her on her way

i know this won't be easy for you
but sometimes you've got to cut yourself loose

she's got you hanging by a noose
yeah sometimes you've got to cut yourself loose

Written By: Jeff Halley

i sit alone in this darkened room
as your memory flickers by
it's hard to believe how easy it is
to fall in love with a lie

but now that i watch all your scenes
i think that i finally see
that nothing you did meant a thing
you were only acting

actor director
you were my biggest disaster
actor director
shoot first; edit it after
shoot first; edit it after
you were not the one i cast for

i guess that i loved you
the first time we met
so i cast you in this role
and you read your lines so well
i forgot you were acting at all

but now that production is done
i see that i am the one
who could have used direction
so please just give me direction

it's getting late
but i'm still awake
with my scissors and tape
i'm carefully cutting
to try to make something
despite my mistakes
when i am done
there's not a one
who will know my heart breaks
well it's getting late
but i'm still awake
with my scissors and tape

Now_You're_Gone

Written By: Jeff Halley

You were all alone
and broken when I found
didn't have a home
and cried your voice away

you were fairly scared
of everything around
you were barely there
but I'd still say

that I'm still glad
still glad I found you
I'm just sad
you didn't stay

Now you're gone! You're Gone! You're Gone!
Why don't you come back home?
Come home! Come Home!
It's been way too long.
Too long! Too long!
Why don't you come back home?

Everything seemed right
When I was around you.
We saved each others lives
I guess you'd say.

But since you've been gone
and I never found you
I sit here all alone
and cry my life away.

I'm still glad
still glad I found you
I'm just sad
you didn't stay

Now you're gone! You're Gone! You're Gone!
Why don't you come back home?
Come home! Come Home!
It's been way too long.
Too long! Too long!
Why don't you come back home?

Now you're gone and it's my fault.
I only did what was best I thought.

Now you're gone! You're Gone! You're Gone!
Why don't you come back home?
Come home! Come Home!
It's been way too long.
Too long! Too long!
Why don't you come back home?
