Lyrics

Save Me

Written By: Richard Maxwell

There was a time when I was only looking out for me
There was a time when you were mine
But I couldn’t see it coming
Right in front of me
And everything changed before my eyes
Can you say me from all these lonely nights without you?
I’m so tired of all this black and white
So let me go grey for a while
I remember I was reaching out for your hand
As you turned away with a smile
Can you say me from all these lonely nights without you?
We can’t be together now
And my heart is lost
Can’t you give me something to hold on to
I’m holding on
Holding on toy you There was a time when I was only looking out for me
There was a time when you were mine
But I couldn’t see it coming
Right in front of me
And everything changed before my eyes
You know it changed before my eyes
Can you say me from all these lonely nights without you?

Set List

The set list is primarily from the CD Pulse as well several other originals. We add in a few covers (Pete Townshend, Yes, etc.) as needed. It really depends on the gig. We believe in being flexable. It doesn't matter to us if the set is 2 minutes or two hours; we make sure to execute every moment as perfectly as we can to ensure we connect with our audience.
