Triple M

BandJazzSinger/Songwriter

We aim to write excellent songs and between us have previously been signed to Elektra, Arista, and Stiff Records as well as more than one music publisher. We now own our own catalogue and aim to develop business relationships to licence our soul and jazz influenced material on a worldwide basis.

Biography

Liverpool writers Mark Vormawah and Mike Moran shared the same management whilst in different major recording deals with different acts. We both came to the end of a similar chapter and then hooked up as we discovered a mutual interest in soul, jazz and good songwriting. We are not the typical Liverpool sound, probably closer to NYC.

If you like Bacharach, Steely Dan, Elvis Costello, Hall & Oates we probably have songs that you would appreciate.

We have had songs in feature films including Renegades, Going Off Big Time and Under the Mud as well as composing library music for Primrose Music.

Lyrics

Maybe I

Written By: Marc Vorwamah

GIVE THEM YOUR AUTOGRAPH
I’LL GIVE THEM MINE
THEN WE CAN SAY GOODBYE
GIRL, I DON’T MEAN TO LAUGH
DEEP INSIDE ALL I REALLY
WANT TO DO IS CRY
YOU DON’T GET THE JOKE
YOU’RE TOO CLOSE
TO SEE THE HUMOUR YET
TEN YEARS GONE UP IN SMOKE
HERE - HAVE ANOTHER CIGARETTE

MAYBE I SHOULD BE FEELING BETTER
BUT I DON’T
MAYBE I WILL GET OVER YOU
BUT MAYBE I WON’T

I GET TO SEE THE KIDS
ONCE A WEEK
MORE IN THE HOLIDAYS
THE IRONY OF IT IS
THAT’S MORE THAN I
EVER SAY THEM ANYWAY
SOMETIMES I FORGET
WHEN I SEE THEM
WITH THE OTHER GUY
THE RULES OF ETIQUETTE
DON’T ALLOW ME TO
BREAK DOWN AND CRY

AS A CHILD
I BUILT CASTLES
OUT OF SAND
FULL OF PRIDE
IN MY CHILDISH WAY
I’D GO WILD
‘CAUSE I COULD
NEVER UNDERSTAND
WHY THE TIDE
WASHED THEM ALL AWAY
WASHED THEM ALL AWAY
OH, MAYBE I

SHOULD START TAKING IT
LIKE A MAN
REALISE WHAT WE HAD
IT WAS BUILT ON SAND
I SHOULD MAKE OTHER PLANS
MAYBE I .......

Just Say no to Love

Written By: Marc Vormawah

HEROIN IT SCREWS YOU UP
EVERYBODY KNOWS
THAT’S WHY I DON’T USE IT
IT’S THE SAME WITH LOVE
THAT’S HOW IT GOES
YES, YOU COULD SAY I’VE ABUSED IT
SEE I’M ADDICTED TO
A CERTAIN KIND OF GIRL
WHO STARTS OFF MESSING
WITH YOUR HEART THEN ENDS UP
WRECKING YOUR WHOLE WORLD

JUST SAY NO TO LOVE
IT ONLY SCREWS YOU UP
SO JUST SAY NO TO LOVE

EVERYDAY LIKE NEW YEARS DAY
I RESOLVE TO TRY
THIS TIME I CAN BEAT IT
I WON’T RUN AWAY
I’LL LOOK HER IN THE EYE
AND TELL MYSELF THAT I
DON’T NEED IT
I WANT TO KICK THIS HABIT
MAKE A BRAND NEW START
BUT SOMETHING IN MY HEAD
IS OVERRULED BY SOMETHING
IN MY HEART

I PROMISE THAT I’M THROUGH
THIS TIME I’M SURE
I SWEAR TO GOD
THIS’LL BE THE LAST TIME
THAT I SCORE

HEROIN IN SCREWS YOU UP
BUT NOT AS MUCH AS LOVE
JUST SAY NO!
