about

The Bad Years Los Angeles, California

"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 ... more

Track Name: Common Mistake
I take my time without you
I’d rather be fine without you
Do you know what I mean?
I prefer my canvas be clean

It’s a common mistake that I always make
Wait for the break to change both our ways
I’ll take all the blame
If you take on the shame

I lost my way within you
Tried riding the waves within you
Could you know what I mean?
I’d rather be nowhere than in-between

It’s a common mistake that I always make
Wait for the break to change both our ways
I’ll take all the blame
If you take on the shame
Track Name: Didn't Need To Know
My love is as cold as the ‘fridgerator
My love only holds me when I’m alright
I love the words of an instigator
But I chose to give up on the fight

I only know where I’ve been
No, I can’t say where your head is

To all the kids we knew
Back when we were cool
How have you fucked up your life?

I didn’t know to know
I feel I won at failure
Now I need to know
Ya, now I need to know

My fear is the love of an innovator
My fear only keeps me up at night
I fear that trust is the indicator
Of a crush that won’t let me say goodbye

My love is as cold as the ‘fridgerator
My love only holds me when I’m alright
I love the words of an instigator
But I chose to give up on the fight

I only know where I’ve been
No, I can’t say where your head is

To all the kids we knew
Back when we were cool
How have you fucked up your life?

I didn’t know to know
I feel I won at failure
Now I need to know
Ya, now I need to know
