Cos I am Mr. Brightside. . .

   My best friends neighbour (who plays a pretty mean lead guitar) started up a band here in the village called V8 bordering on heavy metal and taking me back to the early days of Black Sabbath and Deep Purple, they’ve been playing our local pub a bit lately, and did so on Saturday night actually; just the three of them but bloody brilliant. . .

 

And. . . well. . .  just because I AM Mr Brightside

 

 

I'm coming out of my cage
And I've been doing just fine
Gotta gotta be down
Because I want it all
It started out with a kiss
How did it end up like this?
It was only a kiss, it was only a kiss
Now I'm falling asleep
And she's calling a cab
While he's having a smoke
And she's taking a drag
Now they're going to bed
And my stomach is sick
And it's all in my head
But she's touching his chest
Now, he takes off her dress
Now, letting me go

And I just can't look - it's killing me
And taking control
Jealousy, turning saints into the sea
swimming through sick lullabies
Choking on your alibis
But it's just the price I pay
Destiny is calling me
Open up my eager eyes
Cos I'm Mr Brightside

I'm coming out of my cage
And I've been doing just fine
Gotta gotta be down
Because I want it all
It started out with a kiss
How did it end up like this?
It was only a kiss, it was only a kiss
Now I'm falling asleep
And she's calling a cab
While he's having a smoke
And she's taking a drag
Now they're going to bed
And my stomach is sick
And it's all in my head
But she's touching his chest
Now, he takes off her dress
Now, letting me go

Cos I just can't look - it's killing me
And taking control
Jealousy, turning saints into the sea
Turning through sick lullabies
Choking on your alibis
But it's just the price I pay
Destiny is calling me
Open up my eager eyes
Cos I'm Mr Brightside

I never...
I never...
I never...
I never...

and Since You've Been Gone. . .

 

 

I get the same old dreams same time every night,

 

Fall to the ground and I wake up,

 

So I get out of bed, put on my shoes and in my head

 

Thoughts fly back to the break up. . .

 

*

 

Livin’ on a prayer. . .  we’ve got to hold on to what we’ve got

 

 

*

 

and Are we human or are we dancers? Close your eyes, clear your heart, Cut the cord. . .

 

 

*

 

And Plug in Baby!

 

 

*

 

And don’t ask me why this fits, cos I dunno ~ I don’t know the answer ~ it just does. . .

 

Somewhere over the rainbow. . .

   And V8. . . well, you can find them on facebook, but here’s a peek, the lead guitar, James, teaches music too at one of our local schools ~ and they’re much much better live at a gig than they are in this recording studio
