Biography

Once seen as one of the most promising new bands in Pittsburgh, The Rockstar Collective has become more of a songwriting vehicle for Chad Alexander and Douglas Paul Heckman than a full on performing act. They believe that the combination of melody and music can be a transcendental experience, and they are engaged in the never ending pursuit of the perfect pop song. Their latest E.P. "The Rockstar Collective is Dead!" is a snapshot of that pursuit.

Lyrics

Get Out

Written By: Alexander/Heckman

You say look at all these people
With their party faces on
They've got something, I had it once
I don't know where it's gone
I say look at all these people
You don't want to be like them
Cause they'll break you down
And they'll pull you down
They'll break your heart again

You look at me and say
"Oh my god, I'm sorry"

Then you say
Nothing's going right
And then you say
I can't stand this night
Don't go away
Tell me I'll be OK
I can't take this being alone
Somehow I've got to get out

You say look at all these people
With their happy faces on
I got it right but just tonight
Somehow it went wrong
I say I know it's not what you thought it was
You took it on the chin
But if you just move on
And just hold on
You'll find yourself again

You look at me and say
"Oh my god, I'm sorry"

Then you say
Nothing's going right
And then you say
I can't stand this night
Don't go away
Tell me I'll be OK
I can't take this being alone
Somehow I've got to get out of here

Before they find me
I'll get out of here
Leave this all behind me
Let's get out of here
Do you want to go somewhere
Where no one knows me anymore
Cause I can't take this anymore

Then you say
Nothing's going right
And then you say
I can't stand this night
Don't go away
Tell me I'll be OK
I can't take this being alone
Somehow I've got to get out

Don't go away
Don't leave me
It's now or never
I can't take this being alone
Somehow I've got to get out

It's OK
You don't have to say you're sorry

Let's Go Now

Written By: Alexander/Heckman

I've got these hopes
I've got these feelings
I've been thinking
I've been dreaming
I know you've been waiting
Just as long as me -
Now it feels so right
I could hold on for forever
See I wrote it in this letter
All these hopes and things
These songs I swear
I made them all for you

I don't want to be alone
I know we've both been here before
I know you're afraid but
I'm not waiting

Let's go now
Why not now
Let's go -
No more hesitating
This has been worth waiting for

I've got this heart it says just hold on
Got this mind it says just move on
I'm not running anymore
This time I'm holding on for good
I know you and me could be so right
But we'll never know if we don't try
Why not close your eyes and
Take my hand
We're never looking back

I don't want to wonder
What if you and me were something more
I know you're afraid but
I'm not waiting

Let's go now
Why not now
Let's go -
No more hesitating
This has been worth waiting for

I've been waiting for you
For so long now
And I know you've been waiting for me
So we've been waiting on each other
I'm not waiting anymore

Let's go now
Why not now
Let's go -
No more hesitating
This has been worth waiting for
