BandPopRock

The Sylvans make radio friendly rock (imagine the Strokes backing Weezer) that's guaranteed to win over even casual music fans after one listen.

Biography

The Sylvans had their first gig before they had a band, so four friends with a common love for all things up-beat and rockin' quickly got together and started rehearsing their own brand of radio-friendly pop-rock (imagine The Strokes backing Weezer). A focus on infectious melodies and energetic live sets helped the band secure more shows and soon The Sylvans were playing regularly at many of Atlanta's best indie-clubs, including The Drunken Unicorn, Lenny's and The EARL. 2009 saw the release of the band's first EP, "The Way It Ended".

Lyrics

You Can Explain

Written By: The Sylvans

7 PM and no sign of
You or you girlfriends
I'm by myself and
You say that
You can explain
But listen up

Now I don't care
What you say cause
Now you might find
That you don't have the time for peace of mind
And I don't really care

11 PM and no sign of
My reputation, you stood me up
I'm by myself and
You say that
You can explain
But listen up

Now I don't care
What you say cause
Now you might find
That you don't have the time for peace of mind
And I don't really care

The Way It Ended

Written By: The Sylvans

New has spread all around town
Don't think I'll ever live you down

And I don't want to think about the way that it ended
And I don't want to think how fast your broken heart mended

Should I still feel this way?
These are words I could never say

And I don't want to think about the way that it ended
And I don't want to think how fast your broken heart mended

Mean So Much

Written By: The Sylvans

Here's where she's supposed to escape
She turned around and asked me why she can't get away

Oh, oh, oh baby I don't know
Why everything they sing has to mean so much
She's says it's killing me
Cause I don't want to be...

They're all out to prove they've got wit
But they don't make a move and she's so sick of it

Oh, oh, oh baby I don't know
Why everything they sing has to mean so much
She's says it's killing me
Cause I don't want to be...

Different Around Me

Written By: The Sylvans

I guess you found the right guy
The man of your dreams
So different from the last guy
Well that I don't believe

I know there's someone better
But you don't believe
Just open your made up eyes
And you might see
That's he's not who you thought
But you don't believe
He's different around me

Out of My League

Written By: The Sylvans

Well nobody let me know
And she would never tell me so
I was moving way to slow
For her
But she would never tell me so

And nobody let me know
That she was...
She was out my league

She would never let me know
And no one ever told me so
She would talk way to fast
For me
I should have known it'd never last

And nobody let me know
That she was...
She was out my league

I should have seen it in her eyes
Then I would have realized
Walked out because I moved to slow
For her
Just take the time to tell me so

But nobody let me know
That she was...
She was out my league
