Upbeat alt-rock collection of pop hooks amidst driving rhythms and serious guitar riffage. Polished to a sheen with ambient textures to tickle your ears (warrants headphones), but equally appealing with the car stereo cranked and driving fast!
  • 04:17 Story Lyrics Everlasting Fire

    LYRICS:
    I was ready to get up and leave
    Then I saw you and you brought me to my knees
    With one smile I’d freeze
    … Just keep on, … Just keep on, ... Just keep on, Keep on shining

    Started talking and it broke my heart
    Why did we meet in this godforsaken bar?
    Our fates maligned by the stars
    … Just keep on, … Just keep on, ... Just keep on, Keep on shining

    What if you asked all the right questions?
    What if I had all the answers tonight?
    Would we love with a lasting fire, everlasting fire?

    The world keeps turning and the windows frost
    Lost conversations are sticking to the glass
    It’s time we move on from here
    … Just keep on, … Just keep on, ... Just keep on, Keep on shining

    What if you asked all the right questions?
    What if I had all the answers tonight?
    Would we love with a lasting fire, everlasting fire?

    Something tells me that this is just right
    You’re punching numbers while they’re turning on lights
    This place is closing, Last Call, tonight

    Hey babe you know just what we’re here for
    Don’t be scared and don’t think about it too much
    We’re still young and it’s just a few steps out that door

    Take my hand let’s walk outside
    That big yellow taxi can give us a ride
    I don’t care where you’re going, just take me with you

    What if you asked all the right questions?
    What if I had all the answers tonight?
    Would we love with a lasting fire, everlasting fire?

  • 03:42 Story Lyrics Sometimes

    LYRICS:
    Am I flyin’ or am I dreamin’?
    Am I cryin’ ‘cause it hurts like hell
    Oh Dear all I want is you here lying next to me tomorrow
    But just when I get there it’s time to go

    This crime is silenced by our love
    Time is priceless but it’s free
    But it’s clever it’ll never come back here to find me
    Baby maybe we were put here to live in each other’s dreams

    Sometimes, I’m alright but need to get out of site
    Sometimes, sometimes yeah
    Sometimes, I wake up on the floor but keep coming back for more
    Sometimes, sometimes yeah


    Do I deserve your affection?
    The perfection of your insurmountable ways
    Oh, we laugh and laugh and laugh and together break through the silence
    When the sirens ring you can cling to our memories

    Sometimes, I’m alright but need to get out of site
    Sometimes, sometimes yeah
    Sometimes, I wake up on the floor but keep coming back for more
    Sometimes, sometimes yeah


    Time is of your own making
    Its clock ticks inside your head
    The moment you stop thinking
    Time too stops dead

    Sometimes, I’m alright but need to get out of site
    Sometimes, sometimes yeah
    Sometimes, I wake up on the floor but keep coming back for more
    Sometimes, sometimes yeah


    Sometimes, yeah

  • 04:31 Story Lyrics Run Wild

    LYRICS:
    We were just kids out there running in the streets
    Way too young but now we’re way to old to reach
    Can’t slow down if you’re moving way too fast
    I’m alright with all those nights in the past, we had a blast

    Used to shout “look at me I’m king of the world”
    I’d stay on top until I was lying on the floor
    Thought we knew it all but we did not know the truth
    “til that night when she showed it all to you, show

    How wild we would run
    Running toward that sun
    Thinking this feeling would never end

    Still surprised the police just let us go
    They took our drink and had a party all their own
    Your daddy told me I’d better get home
    Stayed all night with those girls on down the road

    How wild we would run
    Running toward that sun
    Thinking this feeling would never end

    Over twenty years have gone and now our lives have moved on
    But those memories, once in a while I can still see you smile

    We were just kids out there running in the streets
    Way too young but now we’re way too old to reach
    Thought we knew it all but we did not know the truth
    ‘Til that night when she showed it all to you

  • 08:06 Story Lyrics Rushmore/Glory Fades

    LYRICS:
    It’s like the secret, you can’t figured out
    The possibility is not far from doubt
    I’ve been making life awful hard for you
    But the easy days are falling far from view

    It’s like getting hit by a speeding car
    Climbing to your bed, with my flag drawn
    I’ve been lookin’ for, my own Rushmore
    Though it was you, ‘til you closed that door

    And people say that maybe I’m too young for you now
    And people say that maybe I’m just foolin' around

    It hurts me so when I see her move
    I’m helpless and a little confused
    I was in the shit, but I never felt used
    Punched in the face, what’s your excuse?

    I’ve been lonely for too many days
    Like a Clipper ship, married to the sea
    I’ve been looking for my own Rushmore
    When the wind stops leaves you wanting more

    And people say that maybe I’m too young for you now
    And people say that maybe I’m just fooling around
