about

"If you were the sort of psychotic maniac who'd try to mix The Kills with The Cardigans and then add a dash of Lee Hazelwood, you'd get somewhere close to the kind of outsider pop of The Bad Years. The Beautiful Liar EP is packed with cuts that are tortured but uplifting. With its polished sunshine-pop chorus, the title track is the best place to start." - NME

Track Name: Beautiful Liar
You say you are happy
I know better than that
Driving around this town all night
Wondering how you’ll get back

If you’ve ever wondered when you hit the bottom it shows
Right on time each hour

But giving up feels so good
When your lover holds you like they should

Oh, my god! Yes, you are a beautiful liar!
Oh, my god! Yes, you are a beautiful liar!

Something is missing
From all the stories you tell
Fading from sight in the middle of the night
No one hears a farewell

If you’ve ever wondered when you hit the bottom it shows
Right on time each hour

But giving up feels so good
When your lover holds you like they should

Oh, my god! Yes, you are a beautiful liar!
Oh, my god! Yes, you are a beautiful liar!
Making everyone believe that this is what you desire!
Oh, my god! Yes, you are a beautiful liar!
Track Name: Pieces
I’ll leave em all for dead
If they wanna make this harder
I’ll leave them all for you
Cause you’re the one that makes my heart beat stronger

Ooh
Would you help me
Ooh
Pick up the pieces

I’ve been all but dead
Been livin but I’m lifeless
But I’ve begun to heal
Cause lovin you my love gives life more promise

Ooh
Would you help me
Ooh
Pick up the pieces

And when it all goes down
You’ll be comin back around
To start it up where we left it off
And I’ll be beggin

Ooh
Would you help me
Ooh
Pick up the pieces
Track Name: Giving Up
Head full of fire you said you were tired of me
Giving up slowly you tell me you’re lonely it’s me

I’ve got the feelin that I am going to break
I’ve seen it all I don’t know how much more I can take

I’m giving up gods
And I’m giving up ghosts
I’m giving into morals
I’m deaf pale and broke
I’ll give up on gods
And I’ll give up on ghosts
If we can be happy
Living juxtaposed
Track Name: After Me
Sun’s comin after me I don’t wanna get outta bed
Can’t stop thinkin with all of these thoughts in my head
I am lying naked next to him and I don’t wanna get up
But the sun’s comin after me, tellin me that I’ve had enough

Something in the waking light, it’s clarity, taunting me
Sleepin for the after-life, eternity in front of me
Survival is an idle game
Let me sleep and hide the pain

I don’t want this waking
No, way
I don’t want this waking life
I don’t want this waking

Time’s creepin up on me, I think I’m runnin out of plans
Can’t stop waiting, gotta see it through til the end
I am feelin crazy all my dreams are just bringin me down
But time is comin after me, tellin me to figure it out

Something in the waking light, it’s clarity, taunting me
Sleepin for the after-life, eternity in front of me
Survival is an idle game
Let me sleep and hide the pain

I don’t want this waking
No, way
I don’t want this waking life
I don’t want this waking
