about

Dear listeners,

This week I found some songs on and old hard disk I would like to share with you. I recorded them not so long ago (2007-2009) and somehow it feels like they belong together. They might be a little softer, more piano-based and acoustic than you’d expect. So ta-dah, here they are, enjoy and please let me know what’s your favorite!

<3

Bram.

Track Name: Showtime
It's just another Saturday night
I’m in car full of friends
Making memories “we’ll never forget”

You said we would be more than alright
I am wondering and waiting
But it’s mostly just waiting

Five more minutes ‘till showtime
35 more minutes and I’m back on my feet

And I call you from the backseat
But you don’t pick up your phone
I wonder why your so busy tonight

I could say you’re never around
But it’s not a good start
Of a nice conversation

I tell you you’re the star of my doubts
And you say that it’s great
That’s is great how I miss you

Five more minutes ‘till showtime
35 more minutes and I’m back on my feet

And I call you from the backstage
But you don’t pick up your phone
I wonder why your so busy tonight

Sometimes I feel like a travelling circus
A cry for attention, a whore
They’re calling my name and I’m not even nervous
I can’t say I’m touched anymore

And I call you when I'm when back home
But you don’t pick up your phone
I wonder why your so busy tonight
Track Name: I'm Alive
Giving up is always easier
than trying to fix what never
really has worked before.

I remember when even gravity
couldn't keep us both from flying,
but you were too much for me.

But I crashed and burned.
And I know it's hurting you.
It feels like the future's called off.
Now I'm calling on you.

I guess it won't make it easier,
But it feels so right
just to know you're alive.
You're alive.
I guess it won't make us happier,
but it feels so right
just to know I'm alive.
Just to know I'm alive.

Playing shipwreck with our sugar cubes
in coffee that we made to
save us from sinking down.

People say it's just bad timing,
so maybe when we're older.
Baby, I'll wait for you.

And if I had the choice
I'd still want you back.
But I have no choice.
Track Name: Change
Suddenly I realized
it's never gonna be alright and I,
I'm feeling so alone that I could die.

I want to write you, I want to call
but that's not gonna help at all, and so
I'll be staring ghosts into the wall.

I wish that I could say
how I miss you every day,
but it's foolish to prefer the easy way.

And I know that you will say
that you really want to change,
but I guess it's not enough to make me stay.

Sometimes when I come home from work,
I hope you're waiting at my door and say:
all of this was just the start of more.

I'm afraid that no one could
ever love me like you would, 'cause I'm
easily and often misunderstood.

I'll leave your picture hanging on my wall.
I won't forget you but I should let go
and try to set you free.

I can't imagine I will love again,
but I will love again.
You will love again.

And I wish that I could say
that I'm better off this way,
but I miss you more with every single day.
Track Name: Hardcore Kids
So there you are with all your friends right by your side
Just as long as you support their shitty bands and dress right
Oh you feel so strong
Not even worth this song

Hardcore kids and punkrock boys
It's your lucky day, I'm stuck in a day
Hardcore kids and punkrock boys
Go annoy someone else
Or take it out on yourself

Don't you think you are supposed to have an open mind
Or does looking down on those emo kids make you feel warm inside
You're so brave online
You're so cold inside

Hardcore kids and punkrock boys
Do you know what sounds so sweet? That is called a melody
Hardcore kids and punkrock boys
Get a job and find a house
Go make your mommy proud

Oh loser, loser, loser
Lose the attitude

Hardcore kids and punkrock boys
It's your lucky day, I'm stuck in a day
Hardcore kids and punkrock boys
I guess this is it but you'll never give a shit
Track Name: 17
I heard that she broke you heart today
I'm afraid I hope she made you pay
Oh she broke your heart today
Congratulations with your first heartbreak

I remember it was your birthday today
I didn't call, I didn't know what to say
I guess you've grown and there's much I haven't seen
But it my mind you are still seventeen

And I hope you're fine
I hope you cried
You cried

I promised myself not to think of you today
But with that thought I had already failed

And I hope you're fine
No, I hope you cried
You cried

For all the things I never said
For all the things we never did
For all those times you wasted on me
For all the things we never said
For all those times I've wasted on you
