Description
A song that almost didn't make it. It felt a bit too poppy and a bit cheesey right from the off, but for some reason I decided to persevere with it. I'm quite liking the end product! Although I shall probably have to go back and remix it at some point. Is a song every truly finished???

Sometimes relationships go sour. A song about the past, and a little cathartic response to a time that stripped me of any self confidence and belief in myself.

Lyrics
First thoughts to save myself
and fight tomorrow, we'll fight again
why must we always be this way
I must be hiding something
If I'm running away
and I see, now we're fighting again

And I run and hide away

you aim to hurt me
I aim to hurt you back
one look could stop me
one word could change all of this now
why must we always be this way
you must be hiding something
If you're running away
and I see, that we're fighting again

And You run and hide away

we'll keep it going round
another up and down
replay the same mistakes
we'll do whatever it takes to
ignore the truth for one more time
to scared to lose, so we're pulling it down

and We run and hide away

Great song - straight to the heart
through a hole in the head. Excellent guitars and the vocals and lyrics are damn good too. I do think you can do "too poppy" - and cheesy doesn't likely come naturally to you either. At least not from what I'm hearing here.

Oh i've got a whole hard drive littered with half baked cheesey bits! Most of them stay there.

Thanks for listening Bud.

Singing is
a lot about style and confidence and I think your almost 'casual 'style of singing is good, given more confidence, cheers M

Very Cool
What an awesome song! Hec, I don't think this is poppy at all. You have a great voice, very laid back which is cool. Great stuff!

Relationships don't go "sour" people do, unfortunately.

nothing cheesy about this. who are your influences - joy division? that bass-line rocks. very very catchy hook 'and we run and hide away'. have you heard stuff by mikkinylund on this site...i think you might like him a lot. i do. this is a great track.

Thanks
Julian. Not sure who my influences are to be honest..... probably as I've not learnt anybody else's work since I was teenager.... Don't have the patience! I had been thinking there was a bit of Ian curtis in this though! with a bit of americana somewhere in the chorus... A bit of smashing pumpkins maybe....

Will have to check out Mikkinylund. A recommendation from yourself can't be bad!

Thanks :0)

From the very off..
.. I was always gonna like this song. That opening is so my thing. Love the chunky little chords with that whiney solo guitar across it. Great vocal delivery and love the distorted guitars. Man I adore that bass. It's been too long since I heard a new one from you man.
Don't knock 'poppy' it's served me well!

Ahh
but you're a bit of a master of the poppy sound Paddy. The solo was one of those accidents that happen and you just have to keep... I was just twiddling before the chorus!

New bass is feckin ace to play, I'm seriously in love with it. THe old one getting stolen may be the best thing thats happened to my music in a while!! Hopefully `I'll have some more stuff over the summer, before college starts again :0)

vocals work well with music, guitars driven along nicely. change at 2:40 goes well.

I'm with Karen--I don't think this is at all "poppy" (or cheesy). The vocals are dark enough that I don't think it sounds either of those things. I really like the intense, low, guitar chords at about 1:45. I really like this song--rather than pop, it reminds me more of "alternative" 80s music, like the Smithereens or the Replacements. Good stuff. (Oh, sometimes I wonder where music would be if it weren't for soul-destroying relationships????)

Love your stuff man. Somehow it's naive and deep at the same time. And somehow it makes me smile. Always.

we run and hide away
It's not cheesey, and not really that poppy either- glad you persevered with it. It's catchy but also conveys real emotion. I like the song AND the artwork to it :)

well, the 1st time i played a guitar I was 12. I think a teacher had 4 pupils who were excused from latin classes on account of us just not getting it. each of us learned a chord, and we played a song like that. each of us playing just one chord.... ... [see more]
