BandRock

Richard DuBois pulls his influences from both Elvises, a couple of Hanks and both sets of Heartbreakers. Post-punk Stones meet Tom Petty, Elvis Costello and the Replacements.

Biography

East Nashville mainstay Richard DuBois (The Forget-Me-Nots, Shamalam, The Velvet Tremblers), is fun and introspective. Connecting the dots between Paul Westerberg and Eddie Cochran, this raucous quartet owes as much to Johnny Thunders and the Heartbreakers as they do Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.”

Lyrics

Where Does The Time Go?

Written By: Richard DuBois

Where Does the Time Go?
Richard DuBois © 2012

And it’s another conversation
In another bar downtown
Another mid-life crisis going down
And you wear your heart on your sleeve
As if it were a scar
As if everyone should realize who you are

Chorus: 3 am – Where does the time go?
I can’t believe the time, no, I don’t believe the time
Here I am – Where does the time go?
I can’t believe the time, no, I don’t believe the time

Looking for a bed of roses
Sleeping on a bed of nails
I’m a steam engine locomotive coming off the rails
Baby, it’s just a flesh wound
It won’t add up to much
Am I losing track of time, or am I losing touch?

Chorus

Bridge: 21 turns to 41 without warning
3 am turns to 5 o’clock in the morning
I can’t believe the time - No, I don’t believe the time
I can’t believe the time - No, I don’t believe the time

Searching for some meaning
Searching for my youth
At the bottom of a glass of whiskey and vermouth
And it’s another conversation
And another cigarette
Another mid-life crisis hasn’t happened yet.
