about

'Stand tall up' was recorded at Monkey Puzzle House Studios in Woolpit, Suffolk.

This 5 track record sees TBW put aside their rockier sound from their previous records to return to their more folkier routes.
Already being said to be their most interesting sound yet, this new recording truly shows a leap forward for the band and for singer songwriter Chris Athorne.

Track Name: Kids
We swung from tree tops
and we ran as fast as the wolves
We became pirates
and we looted all of the gold

No one will see us
as long as we put on our cloaks
Let's all be spacemen
and fly to the moon on the roof


Do we run, forward
Into the crashing storm
Where the waves will find us in the dark


Those days are behind us
but we still hold on to the thoughts
Of being as tall as a giant
or walking on yellow brick roads

There's photo's and memories
that all seem to turn into dust
If only our spaceship could find us again
to beam us all up


Do we run, forward
into the crashing storm
Where the waves will find us in the dark

Or do we stand tall up
Against this world we fear
Learn to fly like we once did as kids
Track Name: Light it up
I heard the sighs
and read the signs
Saw the weakness in you eyes
and I, thought lets talk lets talk

Break and smile
and not your mind
It's ok to feel compromised sometimes
Lets take a walk, take a walk


Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm


Well who am I, to spread the wise
With these holes in my shoes
this guitar and my life on the line
But I believe in it all

I'd sell my car, and all my homes
Well that's of course if I had one to call my own
Ain't gonna stand in line


Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm
Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm


Don't let it lie
At the bottom of the oceans tide

Don't say goodbye
To that feeling that you hold inside

Light it up
Light it up
Light it up...
Track Name: I'm home
Well I've been lost up on the hill side
I've been washed upon the shore

Chasing down these avenues
and going around door to door

But now I'm home
Well I think I'm home

Am I home
Yeah I think I'm home


So don't you tell me you love me
Then be asking me to go

Don't be telling me to leave
And then be running down the road

Well I've been caught up in my story
I've been chasing my shadow

But now I'm home
Yeah I think I'm home


Will you fly with me to the moon
or leave me running after the train

Lend me all or some of your shelter
in this cold English rain

But now I'm home
Well I think I'm home

Am I home
Yeah I think I'm home


So don't you tell me you love me
Then be asking me to go

Don't be telling me to leave
And then be running down the road

Well I've been caught up in my story
I've been chasing my shadow

But now I'm home
Yeah I think I'm home


So don't you tell me you love me
Then be asking me to go

But now I'm home
Yeah I think I'm home

So don't you tell me you love me
Then be asking me to go

Don't be telling me to leave
And then be running down the road

Well I've been caught up in my story
I've been chasing my shadow

But now I'm home
Yeah I think I'm home

And now I'm home
Yeah I think I'm Home

And now I'm home
Yeah I think I'm home
Track Name: Losing touch
Don't be in my silhouette
Don't be my last, my one regret no
I can't, I won't sit still

And I've wandered through fields of sadness
Tales of woe are the ones I've practiced
For now, it's where I belong

Because I'm
Losing touch
I'm losing touch with you

Yes I'm
Losing touch

I'm losing touch with you


Did I bight the hand that feeds me
My mind is trembling
please relieve me
You're the only, witness here

And my sight is blinded
by the thunder
The way we talk to one another
We're becoming strangers dear


Because I'm
Losing touch
I'm losing touch with you

Yes I'm
Losing touch

I'm losing touch with you


Fly away baby
Fly away

Fly away baby
Fly away

Fly away baby
Fly away from me


Because I'm
Losing touch
I'm losing touch with you

Yes I'm
Losing touch

I'm losing touch with you
Track Name: Mexico
These days are blending I am concerned
And life keeps joking me around

I talk and talk but my words they hide
And all that's left is this caged up mind


So go
High or low
Jump on a plane and fly into Mexico

Got to keep moving on
Catch a sail on the river
Stick out your thumb and shout

Hey hey hey


This country I love is falling fast
We lie awake clutching to the past

I miss my brother, he moved away
It seems to be me that has to stay

Well I'm packing up me and moving away


And go
High or low
Jump on a plane and fly into Mexico

Got to keep moving on
Catch a sail on the river
Stick out your thumb and shout

Hey hey hey
