Scottish Pop Punk: Woes – “Suburbs”

Woes

“Suburbs”

Self Help

Woes come from Edinburgh, Scotland, and their punk pop sound is so refreshingly original while drawing on the past and throwing the sound into the future.  The combination of punk, pop, and R&B make the band stand out, and lead singer, DJ’s voice is stunning.  When you combine the wit of the Offspring with the sound of a Scottish Eve 6, and then add that futuristic touch, you get this great music.  I love this band.  It is just what I need for a rainy April day.

I’ve been thinking of the words, can’t get them out Got a list of my regrets, more than I can count, yeah Haven’t seen you for a year, or thereabouts Would you pick up if I called? At night I think about it I thought I’d seen it all before You gave me your love but I wanted more Would you even change a thing about how it turned out I don’t wanna think about you I just wanna hear I love you too I moved out from the suburbs I lost you along the way I guess I had my shot Go have the life you want Moved on, changed your number I wish that I could have stayed I guess I had my shot Go have the life you want Don’t wanna say that I’m gonna leave and I wanted more, yeah I’m sorry I admit that I wanna stay but I’m sorry no I just can’t Got my selfish ways, who’s to blame if it’s not you? I’d rather leave cause I’m scared of the truth That maybe there’s someone better out there for you. Can’t keep saying that it’s over Only when we’re sober Then it goes around, around again Fuck you screaming that I hate you Tell you I don’t love you but I do, I do, I do I moved out from the suburbs I lost you along the way I guess I had my shot Go have the life you want Moved on, changed your number I wish that I could have stayed I guess I had my shot Go have the life you want It’s the truth, it’s the truth, it’s the truth That I could never love you more Even though I let you go It’s the truth, it’s the truth, it’s the truth Yeah, you know I got big plans I can’t expect anyone to understand Not that anyone could Wonder, are you lost or are you still waiting I let go of the words I’ve been saving The Awful Truth I am embracing I moved out from the suburbs I lost you along the way I guess I had my shot Go have the life you want Moved on, changed your number I wish that I could have stayed I guess I had my shot Go have the life you want
