BEHIND THE SONG: Don't Say A Word

If you've caught us live recently, Don't Say A Word is one of the newer more upbeat and pop/rock tunes we've written. This song is about sticking to your guns, being faithful to what makes you unique, and the life you live through that. Don't rush through the hustle and bustle of life, keep your eyes on your big picture and the little strokes it takes to get there. You can keep your day job, but don't let that take your heart away from your dream. And you might sneer and think that "dreaming" is only for children, but you can only say that if you've given up. And you know what? You don't have to give up your dream. So what if you see your friends less, if you consume less, if you have to work harder... if it's all for something you're passionate about and working towards, it will pay off. Don't fret about how others perceive you, how do you perceive you?

Here's the lyrics:

I swim along, while everybody rows. Their faces always changing, never pause, they're yelling it's the only way to go. I couldn't be the only one.

Sky is lit. A miracle with days so dark they'd never know where time had gone.
They're shouting nonsensical. I couldn't be the only one.

Stick to me, stick to me. Together we will show them, show them.

Baby don't say a word. You don't need to reason girl, I stick around 'cos I'm drawn to your light.
You don't owe me anything. Baby don't say a word.

Found a kid, the wisest soul. Keeps his head up in the lows and he keeps dancing even when they all say no. We couldn't be the only ones.

We can breathe, we can breathe. We are so free and we know it, know it.

Baby don't say a word. You don't need to reason girl, I stick around 'cos I'm drawn to your light.
You don't owe me anything. Baby don't say a word.

And I'll bury all my baggage. Put my fists high in the air. Never wanted all this traffic so I dive into my own dares. And I've cursed all of my takers. Running 'til my muscles burn. Only talking when it's valuable. 

Baby don't say a word. You don't need to reason girl, I stick around 'cos I'm drawn to your light.
You don't owe me anything. Baby don't say a word.

Stick to me, stick to me. Together we will show them, show them. We can breathe, we can breathe. We are so free and we know it, know it. Baby don't say a word. Baby don't say a word.

Peace out
