Lyrics

Wait

Written By: Western Aerial

All of my life
I feel I've been waiting
For what I'm about
To do for you

Well I don’t mind if it takes all evening
I know it’s right when I hear you scream
I don’t mind if my hands get dirty
I don’t mind you see? Can’t you see

I can hardly wait that long, it’s forever
I can hardly wait that long, it’s forever
I can hardly wait that long, it’s forever
I can hardly wait that long

Come on inside
Get out of the weather
I hope you don’t mind
The formalities

I know your kind feeling lost and lonely
I smell your fear from a mile away
I’ll keep my word if you reconsider
I don’t mind you see? Can’t you see

I can hardly wait that long, it’s forever
I can hardly wait that long, it’s forever
I can hardly wait that long, it’s forever
I can hardly wait that long

I can hardly wait that….
Long is the knife that cuts inside you
Long are the stares and the weight of the world
Long is my focus and patience and virtue
I don’t mind you see? Can’t you see
I can hardly wait that long
I can hardly wait that long
I can hardly wait that long
And I want to hear you scream

Saturday Night (This is Sunday Morning)

Written By: Western Aerial

Saturday Night (This is Sunday Morning)

I used to think it would never all be over
I used to think the song would never end
I used to think we could change the world together
I used to think that we were more than friends

I used to think someday they’d make a movie
About how we became what we wanted to be
I used to love the little things about you
I used to sleep at night ‘cause you believed in me. . . But that was

(Chorus)
Saturday night this is Sunday morning
I was feeling alright when without warning you said
Saturday night ain’t like Sunday morning in the rain

I used to think I’d always have your shoulder
I used to think things could stay the same
I tried to smile though my heart was breaking
I never thought I’d feel this way again. . . But that was

(Chorus)

(Bridge)
Many years from today as we’ve drifted away
We’ll look back on our life and times
No regret on the face of the king for a day and night. . .But that was

(Chorus)
Saturday night this is Sunday morning
I was feeling alright when without warning you said
Saturday night ain’t like Sunday morning in the rain

(Chorus)
Saturday night this is Sunday morning
I was feeling alright when without warning you said
Saturday night ain’t like Sunday morning in the rain. . .Another
Saturday night this is Sunday morning
I was feeling alright when without warning you said
Saturday night ain’t like Sunday morning in the rain

Discography

"Rock 'n' Roll Is Always In Fashion", the forthcoming release from Rip City's own Western Aerial is a testament to just that, that rock 'n' roll is not out of fashion - it's alive and well as always.

Some will ask who Western Aerial is. Others are already converts to their brand of rock, which has drawn comparisons to Buckcherry, Velvet Revolver, AC/DC, and Foo Fighters. And, some will ask, "Is Western Aerial the band from the Blazers' games?"

The answer to the latter is YES.

Western Aerial, commissioned by the Blazers' organization to cover The Who's "Baba O'Reilly", were seen throughout the Blazers' hometown games on the Jumbotron performing their rendition of the classic hit. You may have also seen Western Aerial in a Blazers’ commercial on KGW that aired throughout the season, promoting attendance to the Blazers' hometown games.

Riding on the wave of success and rise in attendance through the support of the Blazers, Western Aerial recorded "Rock 'N' Roll Is Always In Fashion".

Featuring three songs - "There You Go", "Down", and "I've Got a Van" - Western Aerial's forthcoming CD is a throwback to era of 45s, with a band
choosing to release a few choice singles instead of a full-length album.

"We decided to do a series of singles that we'll later compile into an album, which allows us to get new music out more often and keep it fresh," says vocalist/guitarist Geoff Metts on the band's decision to revitalize the glory days of singles. "This way we're not mired down with having to record 15 or 20 songs at once. The industry is changing so rapidly, at this point we can do whatever we want so why not take it in a retro direction. It's sort of an old-thing-new-again; we’re adapting the old format of albums being a series of separate recordings to fit what’s possible now. And making sure we offer value and excitement to our fans because of it."

Listen to it along with Western Aerial's 4 other albums, Made In Portland, Want It All, and Western Aerial at www.cdbaby.com.
