Our songs are commonly called love songs or breakup songs, but delve into a deeper realm than just a romance. In these songs are real life, pain, joy, heartache, and commitment.

Biography

San Francisco has long been known as northern California, but little do people know that 300 miles north, is a town called Fortuna. Nick Downey, Mike Grimaldo, and Travis Rogers have tried many times to explain Fortuna when telling people where they are from, until finally they gave in and started telling people that Fortuna is, “Somewhere North of San Francisco.”

Since that day, the name, Somewhere North, has become a respected name throughout the area as one of the premier bands in Humboldt County. Somewhere North is paving the way for a fresh and energetic sound. Led with heartfelt lyrics and pounding rhythms, sweet melodies and dynamic motion, with only a three piece acoustic band? There are skeptics, but only listen to them and you will find that rock can truly be found in acoustic guitar, drums, and bass.

Lyrics

What Would You Say

Written By: Nick Downey

I know I've said everything
I know I've seen many things
You don't have to believe me
This is how I feel

Chorus:

What would you say if I said I'm in love? Would it come as a surprise, would you see it in my eyes?

v2
Go ahead laugh, I don't care
I want to see your smile everywhere
I know it seems so typical
This is how I feel

Chorus.
What would you say if I said I'm in love? Would it come as a surprise, would you see it in my eyes?

What would you think
If I said I could not live
without you
Would you think it's so
surreal
Would you think that I'm a
fool

What would you say if I said I'm in love? Would it come as a surprise, would you see it in my eyes?

Bend or Break

Written By: Nick Downey

Can you tell that everytime you smile I hide inside/ can you tell that I'm afraid when you look into my eyes/ your beauty is so overwhelming I would give away my life/ just to hear you say I love you even though I know you don't

Chorus
But...
I won't bend and I won't break/ every time I see your face/ cause I can see right through you/ I can see right through you

I can feel you moving through breaking me down piece by piece/ I'm believing every lie that I'm feeding to myself/ the dress that you wore today is filling me with compromise/ Your hair that falls down in waves it is washing me away

Chorus
But...
I won't bend and I won't break/ every time I see your face/ cause I can see right through you/ I can see right through you

Bridge:
And your walking towards me with your eyes staring at me/ I can't stand your words are making me weak/ I want to believe your love could make me free/ you take till I break down and fall at your feet

Chorus
But...
I won't bend and I won't break/ every time I see your face/ cause I can see right through you/ I can see right through you

Focusing

Written By: Nick Downey

Your picture frame is on the edge of my dresser/ Should I watch it fall and break into a milion pieces/ Will instinct pull me out and catch you as your falling/ I'm fighting every impulse to care as you're crying

Chorus
I'm still focusing on all our memories/ everything is so blury without you

Remember when you had me on the edge of your dresser/ You moved your hand that was cold you pushed me forward/ Through shattered glass I watched you exit through the doorway/ I'm trying to forgive but so many pieces are still missing

Chorus
I'm still focusing on all our memories/ everything is so blury without you

Bridge:
Don't ask me why, don't pretend to cry I don't think that we'll survive/ the broken pieces of our lives are scattered across the floor..

Chorus
I'm still focusing on all our memories/ everything is so blury without you
