about

This EP captures a few stripped down acoustic versions of songs in their original form. Some may make their way into more fleshed out studio versions at a later date. It was recorded at the Culture Container in Berlin on 4 March, 2015. I would like to give special thanks to Franz Rodeck for doing a great job with the recording and for establishing a one of a kind Berlin live music institution that has supported and continues to support so many artists/bands, keeping the Berlin live music scene alive.

Track Name: How You Gonna Love?
when you´re walking alone
slowly going insane
and the road´s become your home
but you´ve got no real place to stay

well you try to creep inside
but you win´t got nowhere to hide
the one you let get close
now can only live with your ghost
well if nothing´s ever good enough...

how you gonna love?
how you gonna love?
how you gonna ever let go
of the pain you hold inside?

always want more than you´ve got
think you could do with a better lot
stuck thinking there´s something else
it´s good way to end up just with yourself

one day I´ll pass this way again
why can´t I just be wherever I am?
though rocknroll makes me feel whole
it leaves a burning emptiness inside my soul
if nothing´s ever good enough...

how you gonna love?
how you gonna love?
how you gonna ever let go
to the one who´s by your side?

I just don´t know
I just don´t know
I just don´t know
Track Name: Can´t Help But Fight It
with just one week to go
wish my days would slow
slow down
slow down for me

why´d I have to meet you now?
wish there was a hope somehow
some way
we could just be here now

you catch me thinking what I coulda been
when I coulda been right here with you the whole time
you see me staring through you wonder why
but I´m just trying to find a way outta my mind
now it´s too late we lost the night
get back to thinking nothing ever turns out right
so I´ll drink my drink take my time to think
about the truths I know in myself I just can´t help but fight

maybe it´s in my blood
not to do the things I could
well I should try
but I´m too busy wondering why

if you want a life, go live it
if you´ve got something to give, then give it
give in
she´s waiting to be let in

you catch me thinking what I coulda been
when I coulda been right here with you the whole time
you see me staring through you wonder why
but I´m just trying to find a way outta my mind
now it´s too late we lost the night
get back to thinking nothing ever turns out right
so I´ll drink my drink take my time to think
about the truths I know in myself I just can´t help but fight

you catch me thinking what I coulda been
when I coulda been right here with you the whole time
you see me staring through you wonder why
but I´m just trying to find a way outta my mind
you see me staring through you wonder why
but I´m just trying to find a way outta my mind
you see me staring through you wonder why
but I´m just trying to find a way outta my mind

well I´m just here trying to pour my soul out to you
it´s a little off key, it´s the only way to get through
maybe one day, you´ll realise
just how much I tried
just how much I
can´t help but fight it
can´t help but fight it
Track Name: Lonesome Traveller
lonesome traveller
you´ve got a ways to go
funny thing is
none of them even know
thought you didn´t
know the pain that you know
lies you´re keeping
just to not let it show

you want everything
and you want it right now
you´d give everything
if you knew the way how

girls you´re seeing
like to hear all your stories
they love that feeling
not to have any worries
but it ain´t long til they´ve
heard all your stories
wondering if there´s more to you
than all your past glories

you´d stop telling them
if you found the right one
can´t remember when
the vicious cycle begun

so keep on stumbling
make sure not to look back
keep them guessing
cover up all of your tracks
you can´t be dwelling
on all them things that you lack
so put your head down
pick yourself up and put on your pack

you wanna be everywhere
and you wanna be here right now
you´d go everywhere
if you could feel it all somehow

I left you longing and lonesome
I left you longing and lonesome
I left you longing and lonesome
now I´ve gone done myself in
I left you...
