BandPopEDM

Poptronic that rides highs and lows like a rock rollercoaster. It's about starting big, and finishing even bigger.

Biography

Formed in 1996, the two members at the helm being V and E, and hailing from London, Ontario, Canada, started collaborating together to make their Poptronic-rock sound.
In 1997 reel released its first C.D. entitled “Free AS Air” and began playing small clubs and venues.
The following two years would find reel playing larger venues and opening for major and international acts as their second disc “Soaring” was released.
In 2000 V and E took time to record other groups, and worked in their commercial studio while experimenting on their own creative project which would be released independently in 2006, this time worldwide.

Lyrics

Why

Written By: reel

WHY

I'd like to live in your eyes.
You'd like to live in the sky.
If you want the wind in your face,
You've gotta try.
Go to the things that you love.
Find out what drives you inside.
I said I'd never give up,
And dared the stars to try.
Gather up, there's courage inside
When it's yourself you've gotta find.
Don't give up.
It's easy to slide.
But figure out -WHY

You wanna live in the sky.
Enjoy the roar of the crowd
And haven't done it by now -WHY
There's a wind that is blowing the stars around.
There's a way to catch them only if off your feet.
There's a fear that's built up inside.

Now ask yourself- where am I and why?
Enjoy the ones you love.
Thy'll love you right back in stride.
Is it predetermined?
Or is there a light?
Either way, it's a short life.
So in short, I heard this advice:
Love like you've never been hurt.
Work like you don't need the cash.
Dance like no-one's watching.
And damn it - Try

Feel the hurt holdin on and over.
When will you realize - WHY?

Free As Air

Written By: reel

Making a move to do things that you’d like to
While dancing like grabbing the girl right beside you
And going berserk let’s just burst it through first
To eleviate tension like quenching a thirst
When the night is your stage and the music they play
Makes your friends go all crazy and you feel the same
When the energy’s pure and the people are sure
Of themselves you can’t help but

Feeling hey hey hey
Free as air

Down on yourself call your friends they can help you
Get up on your feet though you think you’ve been beaten
And the day’s been the worst and your friends’ there to push you
You curse they insist you get dressed there’s no time
‘Cuz the night is alive when you get there you finally
Realize the sight it’s so fine to combine
Mystery and allure that you’re finding for sure
That your friends you just spent heaven sent are

Feeling hey hey hey
Free as air
Feeling hey hey hey
Free as air

They’ll try to let you down
They love to bring you down
That’s why I am around
They’ll fight but I can’t help

Feeling hey hey hey
Free as air
Feeling hey hey hey
Free as air
Cuz we just don’t care…

Burn

Written By: reel

BURN

I’ll make my way to kill myself
And take the blame
Just to carry you over

Fine
You think you’re just that cool
When Chemical’s your fuel
That’s bringing me down
Relax
You try too hard it’s brutal
You’re suspect
Yeah, you’re usual

That’s bringing me down
That’s bringing me down
That’s bringing me down
That’s bringing me
Down
That’s bringing me down
That’s bringing me down
That’s bringing me down

And it burns to see you decay
And it burns to throw you away

Resign
To shoot up on renewal
Ricochet me and refusal
That’s bringing me down
Contract
Your virus of re-usal
Your reject trip turned fatal

That’s bringing me down
That’s bringing me down
That’s bringing me down
That’s bringing me
Down
That’s bringing me down
That’s bringing me down
That’s bringing me down

And it burns to see you decay
And it burns to throw you away
You cannot burn or you’ll place me in discrace
That’s why it burns to love you this way
