Steve Lawson lovely lovely stuff - post-Beach Boys harmonies, summery guitar pop that nods in the direction of Big Star, The Replacements, Teenage Fanclub, The Mock Turtles and The Las. Definitely worth your time and attention. Favorite track: What You're Waiting For.

about

Seaside Stars Weiden, Germany

Every so often, I'll get a cd from a band I'd never heard or heard of, and put it on, and instantly love it. That can't even begin to describe this disc. I put this on, and by the third song, it's already in my year's top ten. This is the jangle pop record of this new decade - indiepages.com on "The Magic Of Stereo" ... more

Track Name: Summer's On My Way
Now that i’m going
A killer walks away
I’ve got direction

Summer’s on my way
I’m hopin’ that you’re there
I know you where around
I didn’t care
On the way to seaside town feel ok
Summer’s on my way

Down in a small town
Reflecting coastal days
Things have got to slow down

Summer’s on my way ...
Track Name: The Stranded Whale
I will follow you
If you remind me
Into summer days
If they might be
Down to the strand and back again
And back again

Don’t check out in the morning
Don’t move the stranded whale
Don’t don’t do it till the dawning
Every day

I will follow you
If you don't mind me
Down the milky way
Even might be
To the ocean floor and back again
And back again

Don’t check out in the morning
Don’t move the stranded whale
Don’t don’t do it till the dawning
Every day ...
Track Name: What You're Waiting For
I've been waiting at the station
Found it hard to walk a straight line
I remember good vibrations
Always looking for a good time

Now what you're waiting for

There was a guy who felt elation
About that girl he thought was so fine
So he went up for an information
When she was standing by the stop sign

So what you're waiting for ...
Track Name: Summer Holiday
Snow makes town a mess
Sitting in our class
Dreaming all the way
Of summer holiday

Fly away to Greece
Take the train to Spain
Drive to Italy
That’s where i want to be

And there’ll be no homeworking
And we could be together, forever

Snow makes town a mess
Still we’re in this class
Dreaming all the way
Of summer holiday
Track Name: Darlin'
Thought you couldn't let me down
Friends until the end
But hey you couldn't lift the ground
I see you now and then

Walking down the lane
Your eyes behind shades
Why should I wait

Darlin' have we ever been friends
I'll forget you as fast as I can
Darlin' have we ever been friends
I won't get you again

I thought that I could follow you
And meet you in the end
But hey you couldn't love me too
'cause I was overdue

Saw you over there
Duck out in the crowd
As if I cared

Darlin' ...

Still you don't stop making out with me
Can't you understand
I'm lost with you but if you set me free
I might be found again

I don't pray for the moment
That you're coming back to see if I'm still there

Darlin' ...
Track Name: September Remains
I forgot to be afraid
'cause i knew that you would be there anyway
When summer's in the air
The sunlight’s upon your hair

September remains
From New York to New England
We forgot to count the changes of the seasons

I forgot to say
That I’ve planned to go away
When summers in the air
The sunlight’s upon your hair

September remains
From New York to New England
We forgot to count the changes of the seasons

September remains
On a train to New Zealand
Leaving summertime for no good reasons
Track Name: If You Think
Take your time
Don't rush it anymore
You will find
There's a world outside this door

I'm trying hard to get through
Hope you make it too

If you think you've found a new one
Maybe I'll say that it's ok
But anyway if you've got a good one
Maybe I'll come and take you back

Come and go
Just like you always did
You got to know
That we got freezing days ahead

I'm trying out a new song
Hope you make it soon

If you think …
Track Name: Guiding Star
A glimpse of sun is coming through
I've got to run to make it due
The dawning day, we spent the night
Trying to find a way to do things right

I've done things right
Glad to be outside
We're happy just to see

Your guiding star over you still shining
Well that's a start to make a change
You drive my car head into the morning
Well that's not far and there's no words to say

A glimpse of sun is coming through
I've got to run to make it due

I've done things right
Glad to be outside
We're happy just to see

Your guiding star …
Track Name: Bad
Too bad I’m going home
I’ve got to make it on my own
I’m leaving I’ve got to say
Something on my way
Down the stairs to new affairs

I met a new girl that was pretty
Saying take me down to New York City

But if it’s good to be here
It’s bad to go away
It might be cool might be ok
Track Name: If You Don’t Look Back
If you don’t look back
To see the dawning there
To see the morning red
While you turn away
And once you’re gone
You can’t come back

If you don’t look back
On a pretty day
All the life in each day
Before you turn away
And once you’re gone
You can’t come back

I might come back
I might forget to come back

I don’t know who’s got the answers
But I’ve got all the questions

If you don’t look back
On the times we’ve had
On the good and bad
You’ll always stay the same
And once you’re gone
You can’t come back

I might come back
I might forget to come back

I don’t know who’s got the answers
But I’ve got all the questions
Track Name: Out Of It
It's not my way
I turn while I should go straight
I came here every day
Hoping you'd come too

But you're already gone
You've got you're own way
If I was wrong I cannot say
In my world I'm no longer in
I'm out of it once again

Yeah you're my world or could have been
Don't tell me i'm dreaming

I hit the ground
Been down for a long time now
And if I'm coming up
It won't be soon

I'm here and I'm gone
I forgot about time
If I'm hanging on
It's just to find
In my world I'm no longer in
I'm out of it once again

I've heard the sound
Of walking through the room
Seen that it's not real
I've seen the colours of the moon
Upon you're hair
Seen that it's not there
Thought that someone called
But no there is no one

I hate the way
I turn while i should go straight
Hanging round at your house
There's someone new
