Biography

Three of us have been writing and performing as The Melophobics for the past three years. We have played in many venues across London and Cambridgeshire and have always had a good reception from our audiences.
During the past few years we as a band have gained a lot of knowledge and experience and feel that the band is now ready to become professional.
we have recorded a four track E.P titled "You Obviously Know Our Opinions" along with three more songs that we have not included on the E.P as we are using these tracks for promotions and to keep for single release opportunities.
We are in the process of practising and refining all of the tracks on our E.P so that we can play to our best ability.
We hope to further spread our music across the UK, we have been compared to The Libertines, Foals and Kids in Glass Houses and hope to become as successful as these bands who are an inspiration to us.

Lyrics

It Can't Be Much Further

Written By: The Melophobics

You build it up only to knock it down
You always seem to let us down

We try to be the ones who are always a round
But you always see us drunk in town
And this has become such a regular thing
I asked you what’s wrong you didn’t tell me a thing
No, not a thing

But it’s my place around here
If you don’t like it why don’t you disappear?
You’re shocked by the say but, I’m not shocked by these tears
It’s a hard thing to grasp when it’s a hard thing to hear

Well it’s safe to say that thing have gone bad
But we could salvage something good at last
And this is the attitude that we all need
So why don’t you just get out of my way
Out of my way

But it’s my place around here
If you don’t like it why don’t you disappear?
You’re shocked by the say but, I’m not shocked by these tears
It’s a hard thing to grasp when it’s a hard thing to hear
So why don’t you just say say say it to me
Then it would have to be this way
Scribbling out your pencil hearts
And casing your run run runaway kisses

Scribbling out your pencil hearts and chasing your runaway kiss
It can’t be much further
Scribbling out your pencil hearts and chasing your runaway kiss
It can’t be much further
Scribbling out your pencil hearts and chasing your runaway kiss
It can’t be much further

You’re shocked by the say but, I’m not shocked by these tears
It’s a hard thing to grasp when it’s a hard thing to hear

Joking Aside

Let’s put the silence away
Bring out the joking everyday
I cross my figures and hope
For a brighter day
Well I’ve been thinking on my feet
Thinking of what to say
You come as you go
But trust me that’s ok

You need the time to loosen up
And I’ve been thinking so much
That this might be just way to tough
For the likes of you and the likes of me
So turn the spot lights out so that we can see

It’s funny how the world gets tipped up
Upside down just ‘ent enough
All you want to do is mess things up
Well I wont let you this time
You’ve been nothing to me but trouble from go

Let’s put the joking a
Let’s put the joking a
Let’s put the joking a
Let’s put the joking aside

(Let’s put the joking aside)
It’s fun but you can’t deny that
This will have to end some time
(Let’s put the joking aside)
It’s fun but you can’t deny that
This will have to end some time

You need the time to loosen up
And I’ve been thinking so much
That this might be just way to tough
For the likes of you and the likes of me
So turn the spot lights out so that we can see

Reality

You’ll smile when you see
All the things that I could have been
And all the things that I gave away
So I could stay here every single day
See this is where my soul lie’s
I’d work an eternity to be right by your side
Just to find out where to go
I’ll keep on running there in till I get old

But I don’t know what to say
But this will make you feel better to day
And this is all I need to do
I just need to stand here with you

See I’m try to live two lives
I burn the candle from both side’s
And this is the reason why I will go young
But trust me I had a go run
See late night’s feel so good
Early mornings is not what I should do
But the candle is well and truly gone
With the wick and the flame it burns on

But I don’t know what to say
But this will make you feel better to day
And this is all I need to do
I just need to stand here with you

I never wished for it to be this way
I’d wish it back again but time it
Never stays
It always gets away

Y.O.K.O.O

Y.O.K.O.O

I’m setting down everything
Because I’m pretty sure it will hold
Everything together for me
I’m not saying it was falling apart
I’m just making sure it will last
But I’m starting to feel the cracks coming through
A solid base is what I want to start fresh
And begin to see, how this affects you and me
The way I see
The way I see
How this affects
You and me

To pick up from where we left off
Would be a point in the right direction from me
As I’m hindered by the burden of romance
And I’m lynched by the strings
Do we have to talk about everything?
A solid base is what I need to start fresh
And begin to see, how this affects you and me
The way I see
The way I see
How this affects
You and me
