BandRockPop

Retro pop rock punk. Picture Marilyn Manson does Duran Duran and you won't be far wrong. We're like Ultravox for the new Millenium.

Biography

Brian likes 80's pop music along the lines of Nik Kershaw and Howard Jones. He's into making things sound good and weird with electronic equipment and studio techniques.

Stevie likes Rock and Blues, grew up listening to Clapton and BB King then graduated to Eddie Van Halen. Too many lost hours playing with his strings....

We don't believe in having the exclusive rights to perform them. If everyone who hears them likes them, then we're doing something right even if we're not the performers.

Lyrics

Washed out

Written By: Stevie Donnelly / Brian Malcolm

You’re getting older not so hot
You know you’ve been around the block
And you wake up in someone else’s room
The fourth day in a row

You should have changed four years ago
When you were out there on your own
Your life was in the fast lane
Now your fallen back again

I look around I see you
Shake my head I don’t know you
You don’t look so happy now

You should have took those chances
Instead of backing off to find
a way fill your glass
Oh look another day has passed

More lines appear across your face
It’s time to get out of the race
Can’t take much more of this
When no-one wants another kiss

Now it’s too late to save you
I’m not goin down there with you
You will finish in last place.

Solo

You don’t get the pick of
All the guys you liked
You’ve got to take what you can get
You’ll settle now for second best

So now you’re done and dusted
There’s no-one left to take you
Out for drinks they know your face
They can see you’ve lost the race

Lines on your face get clearer
Nobody will come near ya
You’ve crashed and burned
Get out my face

SOLO

Everything

Written By: Stevie Donnelly / Brian Malcolm

You all thought it was great cause I had everything
I got a house and a car I bring the money in
If there was something I wanted then I would get it straight
And I ain’t fuckin’ around there’s no-one in my way

Now I will cry myself to sleep I can’t get over you
In the mornings I’m in love at nights I’m hating you
Do you have any idea the hell you put me through
I’m always trying to be nice because you want me to

There’s a hole in my life that’s where you used to be
And you said we’d be friends it’s not enough for me
Right now I don’t think that I can stand the pain
If I can’t have you here don’t want to see you again

I couldn’t stand the thought of seeing someone else with you
But you don’t bother so it’s something that I’m going through
If you’re in pain it doesn’t show maybe that’s what you want
Now all I’m asking is for you to leave my broken heart.

I still cry myself to sleep trying to get over you
Most of the time I’m in a daze for that I’m hating you
I wish you’d leave me alone but I don’t want you too
Oh can you see how I feel I’m still in love with you

There’s a hole in my life that’s where you used to be
And you said we’d be friends it’s not enough for me
Right now I don’t think that I can stand the pain
If I can’t have you here don’t want to see you again
See you again

I still cry myself to sleep trying to get over you
Most of the time I’m in a daze for that I’m hating yoyu
I wish you’d leave me alone but I don’t want you too
Oh can you see how I feel I’m still in love with you

There’s a hole in my life that’s where you used to be
And you said we’d be friends it’s not enough for me
Right now I don’t think that I can stand the pain
If I can’t have you here don’t want to see you again

Friday Morning

Written By: Stephan Donnelly / Brian Malcolm

Waking up on Friday Morning
something coming through
try to open up my eyes
find some things to do

I'm taking steps to last a lifetime
When I get out of bed
The cheap seats ain?ft gonna last my life time
I'm better off if

You should let the dreams come
I will never be far
Take what you need
Just don't take you away
From me

Try to stop, stop me thinking
Just do it anyway
There's never going to be a right time
It's something I can't say

Make or break, chase or take it
Who is going to say
I can't do that any longer
I'm better off when

You just let the dreams come
I will never be far
Take what you need
Just don't take you away
From me

SOLO

I won't change the way I'm living
It's my life anyway
Don't even try to give your reasons
I'm better off this way

And if I change I change on my terms
You're not going to say
How I should live and breathe and walk and talk
So help me god

Now I just let my dreams come
I'm tired of being too young
I'll take what I need and then
I'll take it away for me

I just let my dreams come
I'm tired of being too young
I'll take what I need and then
I'll take it away for me
