WHITE

WHITE

BandAlternativePop

Detroit's underground pop-ballad-laced indie band.

Biography

Spawned from the underground emerges indie rock's dirty dreamer -White, with luscious lyrical stylings of life and love-lost. White brings succinct and soulful melodies to his debut solo effort "Closed Casket Wedding".

From his many influences such as The Smiths, The Pixies, XTC and Crowded House; WHITE's debut is a share of self-doubt and disappointments. "Closed Casket Wedding" deals with rejection and loss of the once loved.

Lyrics

gillian

Written By: jonathon white

chills ran down my spine
for the first time
I had no choice,
her golden voice,
it captured me
not to mention how pretty you are
even with your clothes on
yes that's rude,
a little lude but it's true
and she can dance
her moves are not complicated
when we talk, it's not dull at all

although she starts complaining
about how he's not around
while I am here, as I always will

I lust for gillian
I lust for gillian
gillian, I'm your man

chills ran down my spine
tonite, I'll polish my shoes
lay off the booze
and no sexual moves
she has got him in mind
you fool love is blind
I guess I'll never learn

so I sit with her in waiting
what time is it now?
it's been too long.
I can take you home

three long years later
I wonder who the fool is now
the jokes on me
but I'm not laughing

wheels

Written By: jonathon white

the wheels are falling off of the car
and so far
all your trials and tribulations meet you nightly for a drink at the bar
reality is hard
where's your education,
expensive dinners,
and your expensive cars?

waking up and feeling fresh
pull out your spine
push out your chest
though we know just who you are

the wheels are falling off of the car
reality is hard
with no indication
or signs to tell us just where we are
then it starts
that burning senation
you found it stuck deep in your heart

when your walls are caving in
and your uncomfortable in your skin
and you feel like you'll explode

it's like when two speeding cars collide
it's double suicide
just when things have gone too far
believe me baby
the wheels are falling off of the car

I, I, I

Written By: jonathon white

they whisper as they speak
about a young girl who's in need
she's greedy and she doesn't own a scrap
pays no attention, sits and laughs, and laughs and when you ask...

I, I, I never listen to anyone, about anything
I, I, I never take shit from anyone, about anything

man o' man I'm a nervous wreck
they never said there'd be so many side affects
sitting here having withdrawls
waking up in bathroom stalls but I'm still in the fight

just a young boy with a young toy
but he's got new friends
mrs. multiple personality meet lord anxiety
it's so hard just to be me

my head is stuck on 'E'
my head is stuck on 'E'
someone help me
I thought this was a dream
I come to find out
I'm alone as much as anyone could possibly be

there's nothing in your head
there's nothing in your head
there's nothing... there's nothing
