Biography

The Cliks were founded in Toronto, Canada in 2004 by charismatic front man, vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter Lucas Silveira.

They have toured extensively alongside acts such as Cyndi Lauper, The Cult, the New York Dolls, Debbie Harry and the Dresden dolls, and appeared on National Television shows: late night with Craig Ferguson, Jimmy Kimmel live And MTV's TRL.

The Cliks' first two major-label releases, Snake House (2006-Warner Music Canada/Tommy Boy) and Dirty King (2009-Warner Music Canada/Tommy Boy) brought the band international recognition.

The new album Black Tie Elevator released May 2013 through Bandwidth/ Universal Music Canada is a step in a new direction. The music shows growth in Silveira's songwriting and stylistically veers to what he calls soul rock.

Lyrics

Savanna

Written By: Lucas Silveira, Hill Kourkoutis

SAVANNA

Stone cold
Don’t you know you are my heartache
And I go
Foolin’ round and chasing old mistakes

You’ll be screamin’ out for more
When I’m halfway out that door someday
Gimme till the count of four
Cuz I know you’ll wanna hear me say
And I go

CHORUS
Oooooh (3x’s)

Cold one
Take a look at what you’re missin’
Just take off your clothes
And touch the lips that you’ll be kissing, ya

Cuz I’m halfway out the door
And you’re screaming out for more baby
Give you till the count of four
Cuz I know I’m gonna hear you say
One, two, three, four

CHORUS
Oooooh (3x’s)

BRIDGE

Another trick is hiding up my sleeve
Oh don’t you know you got a hold on me
Oh yeah you got me now
Oh yeah you got me now

CHORUS OUT
Ooooh
Oh don’t you know you got a hold on me (repeat)

Ahhhh
Oh don’t you know you got a hold on me (repeat)

Oh ya you got me, ya you got me
Oh don’t you know you got a hold on me

Stop Drinking My Wine

Written By: Lucas Silveira

STOP DRINKING MY WINE

Stop drinking my wine
Stop wasting my time
Girl, I’m out the door
Buy another bottle
Buy another bottle

Don’t knock on my door
Unless you got some more
Stop smokin’ my dime
Buy another bottle
Buy another bottle

CHORUS

So if you think the trick’s on me
You’ll see the light
There’s no use to pretend
Who’s wrong, who’s right?
The world can’t make amends
Outside your door
I’m waiting here longer
I’m waiting here longer

I’m the kind of man she said she’s lookin’ for

GUITAR SOLO

CHORUS

So if you think the trick’s on me
You’ll see the light
There’s no use to pretend
Who’s wrong, who’s right?
My world can’t make amends
Outside your door
I’m waiting here longer
I’m waiting here longer

I’m the kind of man she said she lookin’ for

4 Letter Words

Written By: Lucas Silveira

4 LETTER WORDS

Heart beat- I think I could come on your sheets
Am I deluded here?
But she says we can do it with
Four letter words coming up in my head

Don’t speak
It’s better if we just push these feelings aside
On the fourth beat
I am so new to these
Four letter words coming up in my head
Four letter words coming up in my head

So go, I can’t bare to see you
So stay then
Don’t bother with these false attempts
I think I’m overwhelmed

Take these hard earned delusions
And keep them away from me
I am not here to tempt your vision
But four letter words are coming up in my head
Four letter words are coming up in my head

Don’t speak
It’s better if we just hold these words on the tips of our tongue
See, I think you’re overwhelmed with
Four letter words coming up in your head
Four letter words coming up in your head

So go, I can’t bare to see you
So stay then
Don’t bother with these false attempts
I think you’re overwhelmed

Four letter words coming up in my head ( 4 x’s)

So go, I can’t bare to see you
So stay then
It’s better if we just pretend
I think I’m overwhelmed

Four letter words, four letter words, four letter words, four letters (repeat)
Four letter words coming up in my head ( 4 x’s)

Still

Written By: Lucas Silveira

STILL

I see the way you look at me
And all of these torches in between
If I had my way, my wish would be
To lay you down

But you’d rather fade into the crowd
And hand me your fated run around
But darlin’ these spaces in the ground
We have to fill

CHORUS

So darling, lay still
And let me come into you
You know I can kill desire
If you want me to
So darling lay still
And let me come into you
You know I can fill your lovers shoes

So if you must go then go but wait
Cuz you have the lips I need to taste
And darlin’ don’t make the same mistake
You made before

So next time you see me in the crowd
Don’t look my way, just turn around
Cuz I can’t control what I’ll do now
I don’t have the will

CHORUS

‘Cuz I want you still
So let me come into you
You know I can kill desire
If you want me to
So darling lay still
And let me come into you
You know I can fill your lovers shoes

BRIDGE
I need you now
Your body all over me
Just say what you want from me
And I’ll do you right
Just let me come into you
Whatever you want me to
Baby I’m yours tonight

HALF CHORUS
So darling lay still
And let me come into you
You know I can fill your lovers shoes
Whatever you want you know I’ll do
‘Cuz baby I know you want me too
