Something said In the bed has been overdue But I just got a little scared 'Cause I do When I look at you I've been thinking about You've been something unreal But that's not how I feel I'm not that lover And you try Oh, you tried With your powdered eyes But I just get a little scared 'Cause I do When you come on through I've been thinking about You've been something unreal But that's not how you feel You're not that lover, lover And I say this to you You must look into Your heart Make a brand new start 'Cause I just got a little scared 'Cause it's true this is déjà vu I've been thinking about You've been something unreal But that's not how I feel I'm not that lover For what it's worth You look around see it go And I say, it's OK I've been thinking about You've been something unreal But that's not how I feel I'm not that lover No, I'm not that lover

You say you love me but you couldn’t wait so you run back home to contemplate walking round like some kind of date its a same reaction – (just) a different time of day you know your wrong but you convince me your right as you plan your next move out tonight you got it all, its just out of your sight its the same old story – Another way to lose and everybody sees what’s gotten you Driving thru the night and everybody sees what they might You’ve got a little but a little too late you’ve got to run back home and contemplate you got the time but you cannot wait it’s the same old story another way to lose

The lights are low and yet I see gloom in your face We need to go somewhere But you've seen everyplace You need something unheard Let's go and find this space Come and take a new affair We need a change of pace Always hard to say goodbye Share my place within the stars You mean more to me Than you could possibly know I want you, come with me But you've seen everywhere, You need something unheard There's nothing new for you Funny how the days go by We need a change of pace Always hard to say goodbye Share my place within the stars Oh lover We both need a change of pace and what better a place To live, to love, to stay Laaa Lover

You’re not to blame The worlds insane Same change is happening All over again Same change is happening All over again All over again They have no shame It’s all a game It’s so damn easy To play the part Try not to break apart All over again Where do you find your peace of mind? Where did it go Accept you’ll be free Except you’ll be free Accept you’ll be free Except you’ll be free Where to run? Nowhere Nowhere to hide Same thing is happening We never learn Same change is happening All over again Is it the end? All over again All over Accept you’ll be free Except you’ll be free Accept you’ll be free Except you’ll be free

Sailor girl, you know you got it But it hurts so bad Sharing our promises you know You can never have You and aye, you know we come from Very different worlds Hiding all the atlases you have Will make him madder now Don't it make you sadder now It make you want her Even badder now now Don't it make you sad 10 foot lead, you know you got it But the place to be Is sailing off into the seven Uncharted seas Tell me please, you know you make me Oh, you make me mad Saying those little somethings Won't get you out today Don't it make you sadder now It make you wonder What its all about now What its all about

I live in my world which affect your world The difference is mine is made up of lies My names is Paul, I believe my own lies No liberal ties can bring me down A pretty waterfall can break my back If I want it to there's no giving back My name is Paul I'm ten foot tall Higher than the trees Smarter than the breeze These dreams are my reality Yes, you know These dreams I will fight you for over and over You know I can't let go And with you I've got some control With you I've got a living soul! Hello our new friend, we can help you If you understand what we wanna do Well my name is Paul and together we fall Faster than the leaves falling off the trees

about

Indie-rock buzz band Ex Norwegian formed in Miami in early 2008 and within less than a year found themselves charting on over one-hundred and forty college radio stations across the US, on the cover of City Link Magazine, and performing to a packed house at the CMJ Music Marathon in New York City. All based on the release of two singles, Something Unreal and Dance Trance Pants, from their debut full-length album on Dying Van Gogh Records called Standby. The album includes twelve tracks that highlight the band's love of classic power-pop ala T. Rex and The Kinks mixed with modern 80's retro pop such as The Killers -- creating an irresistibly catchy and unique sound that has music lovers, DJs, and critics across the nation raving about this 'amazing new band that came out of nowhere.'

Received #1 South Florida album of 2009 - City Link
Best Albums of 2009, Miami New Times
