Unique, eclectic and intimately epic with a touch of old enough to know better As lyrically adept as Idlewild but melodically breezy as a hard rock Teenage Fanclub, they are a challenge to pigeonhole. Imagine Elvis Costello writing lyrics for ELO, fronted by James Dean Bradfield�s younger sibli

Lights out

The live Lights experience is electric and frequently spine-tingling, rather than a bunch of college kids recycling one catchy hook, they actually sound like a real working class band with the fire, heart and poise that playing and writing together for years has afforded them. Having recently shared the stage with acts as diverse as The Twang, The Wombats, Morning Runner, The Pipettes and Piney Gir to name a few theLights can win over any crowd with their supercharged live presence

Lyrics

Film within a Film

Written By: S.Kelly

Can you sit there and tell me?
“I have no heart for you”
That’s a line that you sell me
It’s not real
Cuz there’s not a part of you that I can’t feel

Run and hide if you need to
|’m not controlling what
hearts and minds can’t agree to
It seems clear
that you should have long turned away…
But you’re still here

Call it fate call it what you will
We live our lives just like a film within a film

If you want change you gotta make it
“Time will heal everytihing.”
Ain’t it strange those who say it can’t say how
The time when I first felt like this,
Feels just like now. x

Stop Stop carry on

Written By: S. Kelly

Hey what’s in the box? They’re wondering on their way to somewhere.
You’re grabbing their attention for a day.
Well you met someone, that’s better than no one
but I don’t think they’re gonna stay.

Cuz I don’t mean to hurt ya
So god speed Inertia
Now everything I want is gone I can’t seem to slow down.
Shout, will you stop? Will you stop? Will you stop will you stop, carry on

Born of fascination well she’s happy sat there staring
at all the pretty colours on her arm.
She took a knife to it and pushed on right through it.
I’ve never seen her look so calm

Cuz I don’t mean to hurt ya
So god speed Inertia
Now everything I want is gone I can’t seem to slow down.
Shout, will you stop? Will you stop? Will you stop will you stop, carry on

Head Up

Written By: S.Kelly

Last night we lay and learned how to love,
I’m sorry that didn’t happen..that never happened
It’s all in your mind. I’ll think you’ll find that it’s in your mind so head up;

Like I’ve come home.
Well did you pick meup on your radar?
Because I felt you knew before I opened the door,
but it’s not like before

No throat lumps or goosebumps or butterflies,
when we lock our eyes.
No none of that, how can I make you see?
That I don’t know you and that you don’t know me so head up;

Like I’ve come home
Well did you pick meup on your radar?
Because I felt you knew before I opened the door,
but it’s not like before

And this world that you’ve created well I’m not familiar with.
No I’m not associated. It’s nor where we used to live

Last night we lay and learned how to love,
I’m sorry that didn’t happen..that never happened…

The Leaving Song

Written By: S.Kelly

I see your going. Is there room for me?
Is there space fro me?

Cuz I’m tired of showing
and they’re bored of what they see.

Say that you will or leave me alone
Tell me you’ll shadow me on the sidewalk
As we go home

Say that you will….that you will…….
