about

A bit of a departure from the rest of the album (although there's still an explosion..can you spot it?!). A more mellow track with a more noodly synth solo than usual.

Mmm. Nice : )

Dedicated to anyone that's ever done a boring job they took ages to get out of ; )

lyrics

Sunday night - you're nearly here again
And the hours have been too few
We spent apart - inside this heart
There's a cascading torrent of sorrow
At the prospect of another day

Tomorrow

Though I'm grateful for all you afford me
My soul? It writhes with boredom!
The means to quit - I just can't find it..
And so you sneak up once again

Tomorrow

But if I walk away from you
What will I do?
If I walk away from you?

Am I through?

Monday morning drags me back to you
And tiredness takes its toll
Through you I live life to the dullest
And though I yearn through the jaws of your portcullis
I simply cannot flee
This ennui

And any hope of living life fulfilled
Diminishes more each week
When every day you breath the same air
Motivation melts away..

But if I walk away from you
What will I do?
If I walk away from you?

Am I through?

And if I'm still here
This time
Next year
You know I never found the strength to walk away
To walk away..

But if I walk away from you
What will I do?
If I walk away from you?

Am I through?

about

A Short Dark Stranger Leeds, UK

A Leeds based purveyor of pumping power pop!

80s / 90s style throbbing, crashingly catchy (and literally exploding) synth-pop epics cross fertilised with cathartic, heartfelt, emotionally honest yet wittily pithy, observant and self deprecatingly amusing lyrics.

The resulting hybrid is an entirely new musical species - and (dare I say it?) an act of "musical selection"!
