about

Indie Folker Romania

Indie Folker is very much like Iron & Wine without the iron or Noah And The Whale without the whale… In plain: music inspired by the folkers and anti-folkers, or in a broader spectrum: indie folk, homemade acoustic pop or just plain old folk rock music from the bird house. Drawing comparison to such imaginary singers and performers such as: Tom Waits on high heels, a more scrupulous and much young ... more

Track Name: Monsters In Rome
summer sky it made me alive
you want to tell me something
always return, i never know why
to an easier solution

but if this train heads to Saint Petersburg
i'll spend all my money on flashy girls
you see baby now shadowlands are gone
i see monsters in Rome
i don't find a lot to do
i see monsters in you

come any day i leave with the night
Bombay's far away still
Rio is fine and Berlin is crazy
but their wind ain't my wind

but if this train heads to Saint Petersburg
i'll spend all my money on flashy girls
you see baby now shadowlands are gone
i see monsters in Rome
i don't find a lot to do with you
i see monsters in Liverpool

(instrumental break)

but if this train heads to Saint Petersburg
i'll spend all my money on flashy girls
you see baby now shadowlands are gone
i see monsters in Rome
i don't find a lot to do
i see monsters in you

you see baby now shadowlands are gone
i see monsters in Rome
i don't find a lot to do with you

i see monsters in Liverpool
i see monsters in Liverpool
i see monsters in Liverpool
i see monsters in Liverpool
Track Name: Down Slow
take me skyline
to the country in the rain
through the muddy fields
to the house i've grown up in
somewhere in the dusk
her voice still cries my name yeah

take me snowflake
to the falters of the hills
the season it says nothing
so i take it all it feels
you see out there is dark
there's nowhere you're going today no way

cos you see outside
a full moon's trial
takes me down slow

show me lover
what it is you want to feel tonight
i don't know what i'm doing
so i'll try to get it right
turn over love
now it is your turn to shine not mine

caged in dark
your heart denies
taking me down slow

forget about the changes
or what life was supposed to be for you
shake it off quietly
look at all the young boys
breaking all the car windows with spark plugs
it's a shame
they should fly

locked and tied
police cars
taking them down slow
Track Name: Afraid Not Scared
one last line you get girls with cigarettes
everything's gray but everything's black to me
maids on novocaine, boys on caffeine pills
everything feels like everything's burnt insanity

hard core burger place, lifeless colored words
all i know is all that i feel, exploding dreams
worthless enemies, busted upper lips
backboard momma, her eyes popping out like candy cream

and i'm afraid not scared
and i'm afraid not scared

treat your sanity with insanity
and keep the face that takes the blows of foul wind
captain overboard, lights on neon streets
they fail to comprehend the state i'm in

Bombay fireworks, midnight elephants
frozen music that can't defy reality
Elvis on the news, baby just kill the blues
i don't wanna feel when life drips out of me

when i'm afraid not scared
afraid not scared
yeah i'm afraid not scared
oh i'm afraid not scared
Track Name: Silver Screen
I see my life like a comic, there you go
in some ways you're a lot like me
where do we go my lovely, I don't know
our lives are much like on TV

like some of the stars we shine
with our brand new toys, is he your new boy?
why don't you dance with him? go on dance with him
it's not the class it's the shine
of his brand new car
is he your new star on the silver screen?
on the silver screen

i see the picture getting clearer by the day
it must be someone else's face
"Final Tuesday", two for grownups, 'scuse me there
don't think it's someone else's place

like some of the stars we shine
with our brand new toys, is he your new boy?
why don't you play with him? go on play with him
it's not the class it's the shine
of his brand new car
is he your new star on the silver screen?
on the silver screen

(instrumental break)

stars we shine
with our brand new toys, is he your new boy?
why don't you play with him? go on play with him
it's not the class it's the shine

on the silver screen
Track Name: No Action
wind is cold, water's blind
i send her my greeting from the line i'm beating
no one dares to come on close
pregnant and wild she's home waiting to feel it

now winter is blowing in her ear "move on"
and summer is just around her fingernail
i want to be like any other season
to make it right by her somehow

this is life, man, there's no exception
i'm saving time 'cause there's no action in love
this is just fine so let me load you
'cause you're just mine, i thought i told ya
little baby, there ain't no action in love

she is told she is tired
but all that talk isn't worth it, she believes it
hair like wind, eyeballs cracked
dressed by night she's waiting at home defeated

old lovers whisper in her ears "hello"
discovers the liquor she pours knows her name
it wants to be like any other reason
to make it right by her somehow

this is life, man, there's no exception
i'm saving time 'cause there's no action in love
this is just fine so let me load you
'cause you're just mine, i thought i told ya
little baby, theres no more action in love

there's no more action in love
Track Name: City Of Light
can't you feel it's alright
we're in the city of light
can't you feel its so right
way we dance down in the night yea

baby i'm sleeping and yea i've been waiting on you
your love's done no favors it just tied my head to my shoes
i'm already giving up this fight we've called love
and the worst thing to me is we never we never had enough

can't you feel it's alright
we're in the city of light
can't you feel its so right
way we dance down in the night yea

tried to run but suddenly the hand
hand of fate tried to take it's turn
we once swore to hate the fire
still inside us it burns

can't you feel it's alright
we're in the city of light
can't you see its so right
way we dance down in the night yea

(instrumental break)

can't you see it's alright
we're in the city of light
(repeat until fadeout)
Track Name: Work @ It Together
everything makes you believe
that everything that's gonna be's like it's gonna be
and there's nothing i can do
and there's nothing anybody can do

so often it begs and it creeps
the feeling begs to forgive us and let us forget
and there's nothing i can say
and there's nothing anybody can say

come on let's work @ it together
1, 2, 3, finally free
found you, you've been looking at me
come on let's work @ it together

the fire burns and it heals
this sore i can not believe i cause onto me
am i alone in this feat
is anybody alone in this feat

often it breaks and it creeps
the feeling begs to forgive us and let us forgive
and there's nothing i can say
and there's nothing anybody can say

come on let's work @ it together
1, 2, 3, finally free
found you, you've been looking at me
come on let's work @ it together

come on let's work @ it together
1, 2, 3, finally free
found you, you've been looking at me
come on let's work @ it together
Track Name: Personal Disaster
can my master wait for a while?
can you spare me some of your time?
i can take a load off you
so you can be a friend of mine
i can take a load off you
i take loads off all the time
i take loads off all the time

both my master and personal disaster is this girl
both my master and personal disaster you are
and personal disaster you are

can my lady wait for me
i can take him off her mind
but i can't take the pain away
she'll just have to wait it out
i can't take the pain away
no one does that but time
no one does that but the time

both my master and personal disaster is this girl
both my master and personal disaster you are
and personal disaster you are
and personal disaster you are
personal disaster you are
Track Name: Poison In The Well
poison in the well and there's poison in our thoughts
oh we're off to set a new start for us this once
there's poison in the well and there's poison on the porch
like lovers we've said nothing to each other this once

let it be all that i want
let it be all that i need
let it be over and out
let it be on

baby just hold me don't just annoy me
when the light comes we're over and out
baby i told you i won't always love you until the end of night
but when we're over i said
oh when your momma is dead
i will remember times when you loved me

there's poison in the well and there's poison in their words
how come they think that this was what we deserved
there's poison in the well and there's poison in our veins
what made them think we've lost it along the way

let it be all that i want
let it be all that i need
let it be over and out
let it be on

baby just hold me don't just annoy me
when the light comes we're over and out
baby i told you i won't always love you until the end of night
but when we're over i said
oh when your momma is dead
i will remember times when you loved me

waste no time, i got to trust this
feeling of mine for all we've lost and
hope that we'll find, we'll lay it on
lay it on right

waste no time, i got to trust this
feeling of mine for all we've lost and
hope that we'll find, we'll lay it on
lay it on right

baby just hold me don't just annoy me
when the light comes we're over and out
baby i told you i won't always love you until the end of night
but when we're over i said
oh when your momma is dead
i will remember times when you loved me
