Biography

Serephine are a Pop Rock band hailing from Brisbane, Queensland. Drawing on a wide range of musical influences, Serephine is able to produce emotive guitar driven affirmations entwined with atmospheric lyrics of personal experience.

To expand on that Serephine are a four piece pop/rock band with members hailing from the North of Brisbane Suburbs, up to the Sunshine Coast of Queensland.

To describe their sound in a word would be a hard thing, as the band do not like to get locked into one certain style or genre, preferring to experiment and learn from all forms. Some of the bands influences range from The Corrs and Creed up to Symphonic Metal bands like Nightwish. But generally Serephine have a good pop rock sound that will at once stand out and be able to blend into most atmospheres.

Serephine was founded by Joey and Stephen Noel, two friends who met in their high school music class, though lost contact with each other for a few years until they met up at a mutual friends party and decided to get together and write a few songs.

This soon turned into Serephine, the name blending two words Serotonin, the chemical in the brain that enables a person to feel, enjoy and communicate with the world around them and Morphine, the drug that separates a person from the world around them. So in short Serephine is a word meaning “Detached interaction with the world around.?

Serephine will play anywhere, at any time, going so far as to have entered a country music competition with a “country-ish?original song, though unfortunately, a career in the Australian Country music scene isn’t set for the near future.

Having begun this journey of creating music, there is no place other then up for Serephine to go, as all members continue to gain new insight into song crafting and creating great rocking tunes!

Written By: Music by Serephine. Lyrics by J. Tsai

Blank Pages I'm staring at
No words comes to my mind
I've found the secrets
That you've been hiding
Did you take me for a fool

Oh Baby, why didn't you say
Eventually the truth will be known
Baby, the lies you've told to me
I'll never forgive, never forgive you.

You suffered in silence,
You hide away from all there was
Strong as a rock, you're crumbling inside
You left us, no more tomorrow

Oh Baby, why didn't you say
Eventually the truth will be known
How can fate be so cruel
You were taken away from us

Time was short but you'll stay in our heart
You were taken away with so much to do
Goodbye my friend we will always miss you
I'll never forgive you, never forgive you yeah

Cruel
Life's so cruel, cruel

With no words that comes to my mind
I'm staring at Blank Pages

Know That

Written By: Music by Serephine. Lyrics by J. Tsai

[Verse 1]
Forgive me for all this
But I thought it's for the best
You see I was young and stupid
Life put me through the test

[Pre-chorus]
I know you will be angry after reading through this letter
Feeling like you've been betrayed
But please understand the reason

[Chorus]
There are problems in this world
That doesn't fade away
But know that I'll be missing you
Everyday that I'm away
[Verse 2]
For a little while
I'll be living without you
I didn't think it would come to this
Never knew it would hurt so

[Pre-Chorus]
Those angry words that was spoken
I didn't mean a word I said
I have to leave for now
For us to have a chance

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
Know that, I'll be right by your side
For as long as I can
Know that, I'll be there for you
As soon as I can

[Chorus]

Mary

Written By: Music by Serephine. Lyrics by J. Tsai

[Verse 1]
She said goodbye to the world
Where all the misery ends
The will to live was taken
And now those hope has died

[Chorus]
If she wake,
Will you be there
See her face
So she can find new life

[Verse 2]
They said she's no good at all
Can't do anything right
They said she can't be the one
To make of herself in this world

[Chorus]
She can't breath
But nobody cares
She's one step away
And now that dream is gone

[Verse 3]
She dreams of another life
Where all her dreams are true
She's now slipping away
Her name is Mary

Cry A Tear (Only the Lonely)

Written By: J. Tsai

[Verse 1]
What do you see, when you look out
Do you feel them calling for you
Do you heed them or ignore them
Act now, you're running out of time

Look deeper in their eyes
You will see a different story
It's only, the lonely
Who doesn't get their voices heard

Can You Save Them?

[Chorus]

Give me salvation, bring to me divination
The mask you see in front of you is starting to break
Show me compassion, take from me confessions
Will you cry a tear for me, to save my soul

[Verse 2]

Many faces, different places
Do you feel them staring at you
Empty spaces, no life insight
Endless bodies now lying broken

Locked inside of themselves
Trying so hard to reach out
It's only, the lonely
That'll never see the light

Do you know now?

[Chorus]

[Bridge]

Look out the window tell me what it is you see
Unhappy dreamers walk the same earth as we do
Can you remember all the names you come across
Ten thousand memories all collided into one

[Chorus]

Give me salvation, bring to me divination
The mask you see in front of you is starting to break
Show me compassion, take from me confessions
Will you cry a tear for me, to save my soul
Give me salvation, take from me confessions
Will you cry a tear for me, to save my soul

What do you see when you look out
Do you feel them calling for you
It's only the lonely
Who doesn't get their voice heard

Wish

Written By: Serephine

[Verse 1]

First saw you at the bus stop
You look so fine oh yes you did
Then I saw your girlfriend
She look so pretty

[Verse 2]

I've known you forever
Never had a chance to talk to you
You're in the footy team
And I' a pyromaniac

[Pre-Chorus]

Wish I could, wish I would
I Wish I could say just how I feel
Wish I would, Wish I could
I wish I could say what¡¦s on my mind

[Chorus]

I wish that I could say I love you
Let you know what' on my mind
See I know that you don' like me
So I cry, I cry inside

[Verse 3]

All those times around you
You never knew that I was here
All those times that I cried
You never knew it' cuz of you

[Pre-Chorus]

Wish I could, wish I would
I Wish I could say what' on my mind
Wish I Could, Wish I would
I Wish I could say just how I feel

[Chorus]

[Instrumental]

I wish that I could say I love you

I wish that I could say I love you
[x3]

[Chorus] x 3
