You keep a diary of your dreams So when you fell asleep late last night I had a look It’s so profound I couldn’t put it down Half the words that you wrote were true Then I read that you’re leaving me soon! My world stood still and if words could kill they would be written by your hand You had no idea I knew, what you were gonna do The words I read, are stuck inside my head Can’t sleep them off when I go to bed After all the things I’ve done for you Then you go and rip my heart in two Time comes soon and it heals all wounds and the truth is hidden in disguise After all the things I’ve done for you Then you go and rip my heart in two My world stood still and if words could kill they would be written by your hand You’ve decided enough is enough No more dramas over us

You should know that I see all the things that you stole from me But my feet are firmly on the ground Take all my dignity cause it’s the last thing that you’ll take from me And my feet are firmly on the ground; yeah my feet are firmly on the ground You should try to accept… It’s easy But I’m hopelessly inept, cause I am the sign! Living proof that I’m, living proof that I’m, living proof that I am the one You should try to accept… It’s easy But I’m hopelessly inept, cause I am the sign! Living proof that I’m, living proof that I’m, living proof that I am the one Time heals wounds when those dark clouds loom In your head you are beautiful

Lying next to you in bed and dawn is breaking through Dansette’s turning next to me, and I turn into you A morning breeze comes in the room, and blows the net curtain Should we get up out of bed? I’m feeling uncertain Playing songs that shaped our life’s today But turn it up its better heard that way Autumn, spring and winters spent with you and summer too Four seasons sat up in your room Summer breeze through cherry trees the wind could make one fall We write our names into the bark, the names we scribed are shaped in a heart Art films and magazines cheap wine and TV Watching French films on your own you think you’re Amelie Thinking all the things I’d do to you Thinking that you’d like the same things too But you’ll never know All the feelings that grow deep within my soul The day that I found you My heart stood still

There is no time To waste on those who bring you down When they probe and they shove you around Laugh out load when your face hits the ground The world may bring you down, but that’s ok Cause I talk in my sleep anyway There’s no need to talk I think I know your name All the faces look the same to me The knives are out and they’re stuck in your back again They’re still sharp to use again and again Strike a match In the wind and it won’t stay alight Burns so quickly but ever so bright But I’d rather burn a short time Than to fade and to never have shined Like me some lights don’t burn out you’ll see There’s no need to talk I think I know your name All the faces look the same The knives are out and they’re stuck in your back again They’re still sharp to use again and again But with you by my side Raising two fingers high In your back again, you’re back

I'm Alright 02:18
I don’t want what you’ve got I just want to be forgot my friend And I don’t like the dark at night Cause when you’re there I don’t care Cause I’m alright I don’t want to break your fall I just want to see you slip, that’s all! And when you’re there I don’t care Cause I’m alright I don’t want what you’ve got I just want to be forgot my friend And I don’t like the dark at night when you’re there I don’t care Cause I’m alright

So you bought yourself a whiskey coke You took a drink and had a smoke and stared across the room at me Well I was on the other side pretending not to catch your eye Things are not what they seem You and me we’re the local flowers on the scene Cause I walk between all the cracks in the floor Washing my hands maybe 10 times or more God only knows what goes on indoors When you’re on your own So I spoke to you and then you smiled And then you took me by the hand and led me to a darkened room It hardly came as no surprise when I, I realised Things are not what they seem You and me we’re falling apart at the seams Things are not what they seem Things are not what they seem It came as no surprise When I realised, that I caught your eye I caught your eye
7.
I’ll be your eyes and ears Hear things you shouldn’t hear See all the things you shouldn’t see I’ll be the wind that blows All the dark clouds that show Until the sun shines down on you All these things that I try to say or do All these things I do for you I’ll be your shining light Shine like the stars at night Light up your room when you feel sad I’ll be the books you read Stories inside your head The one’s that took you so far away All these things that I try to say or do All these things I do for you All these things that I try to say or do All these things I do for you All these things and the sun shines on you All these things and the sun shines on you All these things and the sun shines on you All these things and the sun shines on you That much is true

To continue with our support of the 10” format, we at Elefant Records are releasing a Mini-LP from one of the groups that have just recently become a part of our team – the British group, THE SILVER FACTORY. A few weeks ago they released their debut single, with four splendid songs, on our collection New Adventures in Pop.

The band fronted by Fran Feely formed in the summer of 2008 with the intention of showing off their shared love of music from the sixties and indie-pop. They named the group in homage to Andy Warhol’s work studio, where he had countless events and parties. After several changes in the group’s line-up, with even Fran’s brother, Peter Feely, forming part of the group at one point, THE SILVER FACTORY settled into their definitive line-up when lead vocals were handed over to Marc Johnston (formerly of THE JUNIPERS, he was also partially responsible for the same tasks on the songs of that delightful release, “The Sun Shines Over You”). Currently, alongside Fran (rhythm guitar) and Marc, the band’s line-up consists of Matt Vinall (lead guitar), Luke Headland (bass) and Paul Hobbs (drums).

“If Words Could Kill” is the Leicester band’s grand entrance into music society, with seven songs that offer a more complete and open image of a group that is loyal to its sound. Starting with that inevitable indie-pop hit full of precious arpeggios and guitar arrangements that is the title track, via that instrumental revisiting of their “The Sun Shines Over You” that stars a sitar (and there we have the Beatles connection), we arrive at a Mini-LP full of sunny melodies that prove them to be adoring fans of the best of indie classics, along the lines of bands like CLOSE LOBSTERS, THE CHESTERFIELDS, THE TRASH CAN SINATRAS and CHOO CHOO TRAIN. “Comedown Cherry” oozes vitality amidst the thrashings of puppy love, and “The World May Brings Us Down” is so addictive and marvelously dynamic, like the earliest and best of THE STONE ROSES. “I’m Alright” is probably the song that best shows their sixties leanings, with clear tendencies toward THE HOLLIES and THE KINKS. Meanwhile, we get back to the elegance, class, and romanticism with “Flowers on the Scene”, a cross between THE SMITHS and THE SEA URCHINS.

This release will be a mouthwatering delicacy for lovers of the genre - a genre in which we have already included THE SILVER FACTORY. The band possesses elegance and a magical perfection when it comes to rounding out songs and decorating them with crystalline guitars and delicious melodies.
