about

Living Room Sessions is our debut full length album. It began as a collection of demos that were recorded in Dezz's living room (hence the title) and has developed into something we are quite proud of. We hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we've enjoyed creating it!

Track Name: Cuz I Wanna
Give me water, give me bread, forgive me for my trespasses,
Give me flesh and give me wine, these guilty pleasures are old friends of mine

I could go down on my knees, but I won't make excuses,
Good or evil, it's all me, the things I say and do and
I'm not a saint, it's plain to see I've got a host of issues
But the truth is, oh the truth is

I do it cuz I wanna …. Cuz I wanna …
Cuz I wanna, wanna, wanna, wanna, Cuz I wanna.

Try to get it right, try to do what's best,
put up a fight, I try to hide it that I'm such a mess
Try to deny it, justify it but I must confess,
I do what I like because I like it and the truth is that

I do it cuz I wanna …. Cuz I wanna …
Cuz I wanna, wanna, wanna, wanna, Cuz I wanna.

I could go down on my knees if that's something you're into
But I'm not going to beg and plead for absolution from you
Good or evil, it's all me and I can't fool myself
When the truth is, oh the truth is

I do it cuz I wanna, oh, because I wanna
I do it cuz I wanna, oh, because I wanna, wanna, wanna
I do it cuz I wanna, oh, because I wanna, wanna, wanna, wanna
Cuz I wanna, oh, because I wanna

Give me water, give me bread, forgive me for my trespasses,
Give me flesh and give me wine, these guilty pleasures are old friends of mine

Give me water, give me bread, forgive me for the things I said,
If I give you my pound of flesh, will you forgive my trespasses

Give me water, give me wine, give me strength and peace of mind
Give me sex and rock and roll, I don't want much … I just want it all

Because I wanna, wanna, wanna, wanna, cuz I wanna

Try to get it right, try to do what's best,
put up a fight, I try to hide it that I'm such a mess
Try to deny it, justify it but I must confess,
I do what I like because I like it and the truth is that I do it cuz I wanna!
Track Name: Travelling Song
Worn out my welcome, worn out my shoes
Worn out my patience, I've got nothing left to lose
And it is time to move on
So I'll sing a travelling song

Worn out my body, worn out my soul
Worn out my heart, now there is just this aching hole
And it is time to move on
So I'll sing a travelling song

Worn out my spirit, worn out my mind
Worn out my faith, now I am leaving it behind
And it is time to move on
So I'll sing a travelling song
Track Name: Skeleton In Your Closet
I'm just a skeleton in your closet in a box of pictures on the floor,
Oh for shame, how you forsake me, you never open the door

And as you sleep the company I keep are the monsters under your bed
Roam these empty halls, to dance a friendly waltz with the ghosts that haunt your head

I'm just a skeleton in your closet, a small memento on a long-forgotten shelf
I play pretend with you imaginary friends, I am never by myself

And as you sleep, the company I keep are the monsters under your bed
Roam these empty halls, to dance a friendly waltz with the ghosts that haunt your head

I'm just a skeleton in your closet, with all the others you have there,
When memory unearths at last the demons buried within your past, it must give you quite a scare

And as you sleep, the company I keep are the monsters under your bed
Roam these empty halls, to dance a friendly waltz with the ghosts that haunt your head

Roam these empty halls, to dance a friendly waltz with the ghosts that haunt your head.
Track Name: Satisfied
One time last fall, I looked into your eyes and I saw
myself grey and old. So lost...so lost. So lost and alone.

Soon I recognized I wanted something more than you.
I'm not satisfied anymore.

So what if what's inside's not what I'm looking for?
Your skin...soft touch...
But I want to talk. I want to learn so much.

Soon I recognized I wanted something more than you.
I'm not....

I tried my best to make this work out.
I know why and I'll give back all I took.

Soon I recognized I wanted something more that you.
I'm not satisfied.
Track Name: Tic Tac Toe
Tic-tac-toe across the sky, made of silver iodide,
and the tightness in my chest is no relation, after all it's only condensation

I've asked a lot of different crowds everybody says it's only clouds,
But this just ain't natural to my eye, vapour doesn't coalesce in perpendicular lines

I wonder what it's for, but I'm met with condescension, theories of conspiracies come up at every mention
But if it isn't secret, why is everyone so silent? And if it isn't true, why are your denials quite so violent?

I'm sure the truth will out someday, till then there isn't much to say
But funny, never before did I realize, how often we go out, and seldom see the skies

I wonder what it's for, but I'm met with condescension, theories of conspiracies come up at every mention
But if it isn't secret, why is everyone so silent? And if it isn't true, why are your denials, quite so violent?
Track Name: Alchemy Of Time
You've been tested, you've been tried, you've come through the other side.
The river runs past your feet, and the past goes flowing on to meet the seas ... of time

You've been tried, you've been tested; some you lost, some you bested
But you figured out no one's keeping score, so you left the path and you made your own course through the seas ... of time

Oh! Oooooh Ohhhh Ohhhh!

And you may feel like life is a trial by fire, and you may feel like you're getting old
But the flames, they will not consume you, yes and time it will turn you to gold

And you're not gonna fall down so easily, cuz you've got your friends and your family
When the embers are growing cold, you'll find that time, it has turned you to gold

You'll find that time, it will you to gold
Yes you'll find that time, it will turn you to gold
Oh you'll find that time, it will turn you to gold
Yes you'll find that time, it will turn you, to gold
Track Name: Don't Feed The Bears
I'm sorry, I'm a beast, I can't believe how I've behaved
I'm trying to restrain it, but it won't get in the cage
I try to keep it on a leash; don't know who is leading whom
Am I hard or am I soft, am I kind or am I cruel?

I'm not made for making smalltalk, I get buried by the words
I go for the extremes; for the blessing and the curse
Don't go encouraging these demons, cuz they're only getting worse
And sometimes I swear I like it even though it always hurts, so

Please, don't feed the bears.
Please, don't feed the bears.
They're only getting bigger, and they'll have you for their dinner,
If they catch you unawares
So please … don't feed … the bears.

There's a devil on my shoulder and it's growling in my brain
And the weight is like a boulder that I drag upon a chain
Oh, can you really blame me, trying to shake loose?
When it's always me here hanging 'tween the prison and the noose

I'm not trying to make excuses; no excuse for what I've done
And I know that it is useless, there's no way I could atone
But please don't think I'm callous, don't think that I don't care
But I do remember tellin' ya not to feed the bears so

Please, don't feed the bears.
Please, don't feed the bears.
They're only getting bigger, and they'll have you for their dinner,
If they catch you unawares
So please … don't feed … the bears.

(Instrumental)

Please, don't feed the bears.
Please, don't feed the bears.
They're only getting bigger, and they'll have you for their dinner,
If they catch you unawares
So please … don't feed … the bears!
Track Name: Back Home
Oh the water’s much too deep to wade my love
Oh darling won’t you try to save yourself
Don’t you go astray
Don’t go to where you cannot find your way
Back home.

I know that it’s hard to be brave – hold on
I know that you’re afraid, but please stay strong
Reach out your hand to mine,
Don’t go to where you cannot find
your way back home.

Oh darling there are storm-clouds overhead
Don’t go wandering alone
cuz I don’t know where to find you when you’re lost inside your head
I just hope you always know where you belong

Oh, the water’s much too deep to wade, my love
Oh darling won’t you try to save yourself
Don’t you go astray,
Don’t go to where you cannot find your way
Back home
Track Name: N'awlins
I'm gonna go down to New Orleans
See the sun set red & gold on a ribbon of green
Ol' Missus Mississippi, muddy as my memory

Oh, hear that horn blow
Creole lady gonna save my, save my soul
She gonna save my soul

Spent too long living here with the ghosts of my regrets
But she is callin' me and,
Her sweet arms are gonna help me forget

Oh, hear that horn blow
If I don't make it, you can take me,
Make 'em play me that sweet blues for my soul
As they lay me down low

(Instrumental)

I've had enough of bein' frozen to the bone
Gimme Louisiana sunshine, jumbalaya on the stove
Big Easy, she'll receive me, leave me feelin' like I'm right at home

I'm gonna have me some bourbon dans La Vieux Carre
Pardonnez-moi, messeur, but, laissez-les bons-temps roulez!

Oh, hear that horn blow,
Creole lady gonna save my, save my soul,
She gonna save my soul

I'm gonna have me some bourbon dans La Vieux Carre
Pardonnez-moi, messieur, but, laissez-les bons-temps roulez!

Oh, I'm gonna go,
If I don't make it, you can take me,
Make 'em play me that sweet blues for my soul
As they lay me down low

Play a dirge as I go,
Let the sun bleach my bones
Track Name: Where I Should Not Be
No, I can’t say this of anybody else.
No one makes me feel like I know it all again.
Inside out and upside down
and again and again ‘till I see clear again.

…and in all this madness I find you
and you hold yourself…
You hold yourself high and I see me in you.

I’d say “Where are you taking me?”
But the look you’re wearing says “We’ll see when we’re there.”
The things I feel when you’re around me…
Well, they make me stay clear of where I should not be

…and I…don’t understand

How I’d missed this all before you came upon me.
I look upon you. I’m burning.
I’m burning. I’m burning again.

And in all this madness I find you.
And you hold yourself.
You hold yourself high and I see me in you.

I’d say, “Where are you taking me?”
and the look you’re wearing says, “We’ll see when we’re there.”
The things I see when you’re around me…
Well, they make me steer clear
of where I should not be and I…

I’d say, “Where are you taking me?”
and the look you’re wearing says, “We’ll see when we’re there.”
The things I see when you’re around me…
Well, they make me steer clear
of where I should not be and I…
