Biography

Third Wish has done it again

As difficult as it may be to believe, the rock band Third Wish has come out with a great follow up to their debut album “Y”. Their latest release, “Careful What U Wish 4 , features Lance Reynolds at the vocal helm, with a powerful wide range of subtle to highly explosive energies. Poised and ready to release on a deprived, starving, hungrier than ever “Rock’n’Roll” public. Third Wish bears witness to the new and in your face hard rockin’, heavy metal to blues music and lyrical song writing magic of Tony Blevins and Lance Reynolds.

Third Wish was founded in the late 80's by Tony Blevins, who soon joined forces with Lance Reynolds. Together they honed their song writing skills, combining powerful musicianship with spirited lyrics. Third Wish produced and released their first CD “Y” in 1996 to critical acclaim, but was cut short by a 5 year deliberation with their record company who failed to release the CD world wide. Hind sight being 20/20, Blevins and Reynolds stood to make a lot more money because they produced the album themselves and their record company dropped the ball so to speak. Seven years of hard work, touring, changing line-ups and frustration took it’s toll on Blevins and Reynolds and they both took a 2 year hiatus from music only to realize even more what they had with Third Wish.

Reunited and hungrier than ever, Blevins and Reynolds have put talent and advancing technology together and have released their new album “Careful What U Wish 4 under their own record label, Smokin’ Lamp Records.

They will also feature other talent from Arkansas in the near future. Third Wish will also be offering prerecorded video footage and DVD’s from their web site in the near future. So stay tuned and get ready because Third Wish is back and in better than ever form to keep you entertained and ever guessing, what are they gonna do next?

Lyrics

Picnic

Written By: Tony Blevins

Picnic
(Lyrics-Blevins)
Comin' home around 4 a.m. and you've waited up on me
Try and try no matter how hard I still can't make you see
All along from way back when you know you knew who I was
Now all you ever seem to do is raise hell, scream and fuss
Say you're so sick and tired not much more you can take
Babe I know I'm hell to live with but baby...
You aint no picnic either
Shop all day using credit cards, keeps me working late
Say you're goin' to get a job I know damn well you ain't
Troubled times never seem to end there's no relief in sight
I can tell by the way you look at me there's going to be a fight
Say you're so sick and tired not much more you can take
Babe I know I'm hell to live with but baby...
You ain't no picnic either
You tell me again that you're goin' to leave like so many times before
Then you turn and smile at me every time you reach the door
Keep on laughin', playin' these games all I try to do is please
Then you shoot me a look that can kill and it brings me to my knees
Say you're so sick and tired not much more you can take
Babe I know I'm hell to live with but baby...
You ain't no picnic either

Rise Again

Written By: Tony Blevins and Lance Reynolds

Rise Again
(Lyrics-Blevins/Reynolds)
Here I am upon the stage,
adrenalin rushes through my veins
Hear the sound through the P.A.
hear the thunder and the rage
We will rock for you
we will rock for you
and we will rise again now
Blackened days turn into night
we know you will come alive
Fire guns for all to see
we'll rock you to eternity
We will rock for you
we will rock for you
and we will rise again now
Looking down from higher plains,
no more want and no more pains
All I know is whats been told
free your mind and free your soul
We will rock for you
we will rock for you
and we will rise again now

Is What I Is

Written By: Blevins

Is What I Is
(Lyrics-Blevins)
Please don't ask me to change
Cause I've been this way for such a long time
Some might think me a little strange
This multi-personality I designed
I may not know where I'm goin' 'til I get there's
All I know is I'll have a good time
You may say I'm crazy, but I don't care
It's much too late to change my mind
I Is What I Is and that's All I Is
Gotta do things my own way
If I'm gonna do'em at all
They say you gotta pay to play
I don't need no money to have a ball
I may be a little left of this side of sane
I'm not here to sing the blues
Aint gonna live my life in chains
I'm keepin' on my walkin' shoes
I Is What I Is and that's All I Is
People say I'm always happy,
Never seem to get upset
I gotta be all I can be
What you see is what you get
I may not know where I'm goin' 'til I get there's
All I know is I'll have a good time
You may say I'm crazy, but I don't care
It's much too late to change my mind
I Is What I Is and that's All

Dare to Dream

Written By: Blevins

Dare to Dream
(Lyrics-Blevins)
No one knows what one will find
Searching all the corners of ones own mind
Few too souls can ever see
The way things truly ought to be
Nothing is what it means
unless we dare to dream
Nothing is hard as it seems
for those who dare to dream
Freedom's just a thought away
It's time I should be on my way
Love, peace, hope unfurl
As we dream to change the world
Nothing is what it means
unless we dare to dream
Nothing is hard as it seems
for those who dare to dream
All pain has come to pass, for I am free at last
Can it ever be the way it's meant to be
Seems to me you went astray but still haven't reached the bottom
I know I've been away but all is not forgotten
Can't you see? It's more than just a dream
Mounting troubles seem so small
for those who reach beyond the walls
Caring eyes can see the signs
See right through the troubled times
Nothing is what it means
unless we dare to dream
Nothing is hard as it seems
for those who dare to dream

Misery & Pain

Written By: Tony Blevins and Lance Reynolds

Misery & Pain

You see it comin' at you
From every corner of the night
things don't seem the same
under the cold neon lights
Feel it everywhere
The angry feeling in the air
You can't run away
or escape the evil stare

You better run for your life
Cause there's no safe place to hide
We live Misery & Pain
We will drive you insane

Life's twisted ways
had me runnin' for my life
Just another day
a million ways for me to die
When will it end
When will my head be sane
Why do we live
in Misery and Pain

Don't take the road
we choose to take
Don't let white lies get in your way
Cause we live Misery and Pain
and we will drive you insane

An endless dream
but my eyes are wide awake
Yeah it seems to me
I'm in a cryogenic state

Nobody wins but still we play
Better say your prayers before judgment day
We live Misery & Pain
We will drive you insane
