Sting 03:37
I’ve stepped on toes and paws like yours before Don’t let the truth escape the door It’s nothing new, just let the words slide free of you. The spoilt they interact like this Let’s put aside our differences That’s easier said, the words you spoke they weigh like leaden rain And leave a little sting We cease meaning anything. What feathers make you stand out from the crowd That leave you feeling so endowed And strong enough not to have to ask for someone’s touch Your arrow’s head was sharp A filed point it left its mark A perfect aim sent through my chest and a robin redbreast laid itself to rest Under a little sting We’ve ceased meaning anything I may regret the path I chose All I can do is just suppose And close another page on you with the hope these words burn in And leave a little sting We cease meaning anything
3.
Better it die so young than live on to wither slowly Letting our jewel corrode, leaves the road through winters only So mask her mouth and let her drown Cause if you’ve nothing nice to say don’t say anything Just smile and walk away, leaving everything How do we walk this road? If I tire we’ll both fall, if I tire we’ll both fall Counting it down, where is the sound of the end Hear it, fear it, feel it? So mask her mouth and let her drown Cause if you’ve nothing nice to say don’t say anything Just smile and walk away, leaving everything
4.
Come Home 07:07
The land rose up from our horizon Where the air was cold and thin Where these shoes you gave me to walk in Just show me where I’ve been The grey they ask their questions They know the fault I fight That road’s been gone for a long long time And time was always right Come back and carry me home Come back and carry me on Come back my love Come back, come home This stranger in our picture Struggling for breath How cold you take this from me And leave an empty chest He’s no place in our future Your future’s in our past Remember where you found me I’ll be there to the last Come back and carry me home Come back and carry me on Come back my love Come back, come home The grey they ask their questions They know the fault I fight Come hold this weary traveller Help me through the night Come back and carry me home Come back and carry me on Come back my love Come back, come home
5.
Could you set up other gear Decide now you’ll need to choose your amplifier You’ll need a crew; users commoners and other fools You’ll want to use in this session This might be easy You’ll need your head straight You’ll need to be clear You’ll need a routine to rely on I recommend the bleeding There’s no other label apt enough To describe what we have in store This tide’s unclear, what time is here?
6.
So the seekers say So the features drop A frown the tendency As if it’s time we stop Enough dependency Just leave some room to breath You ask too much of me Give me a chance to fall off And though an answer come A feature fashion scar I’ve seen the way you run Don’t think you’ll get too far You’ve worn the patches thin Congratulations then And are you sick of sin Give me a chance to get up Not where we thought we were Time to talk about Is it a time we stir And let the drifting out Let’s just have some fun Forget the formula Forget your number one Where can we go from where we’ve come

about

After a hiatus of nearly 5 years Solla Sollew have returned with a new EP, “The Beginning of the End” released in February 2012. This completely independent release displays the new heights of their songwriting talents and as always a healthy collection of talented musical friends including Dave Kleynjans on drums (D. Rogers/Knieval), Monica Royal on cello (Sam Burke and the Wifeys) and Andrew Nock/Amy Bennett on violin/viola make the sound super lush. Engineered by Emerson Bavinton (Hungry kids of Hungary/Gorgeous) and mastered by Matt Gray (The Middle East), this EP is tight, carefully crafted and sensitively put together and is sure to make waves in 2012.

With roots far ranging in style from classical to folk to electronic, Solla Sollew has developed a unique sound. Delicate harmonies and sweeping strings compliment piano driven melodic lines and vocals through these almost cinematic songs of love and loss that will leave your heart bleeding.
