I Used To Be A Sparrow

One Album

With such a poetic shot at their name, I Used To Be A Sparrow is a unique compromise between the honest urgency of a garage band and the powerful impact of an arena rock act.
The duo of Dick Pettersson and Andrea Caccese is all about taking chances and following their guts when it comes to their music: swapping stories, songs and favorite records quickly turned into a prolific song-writing partnership as the Västerås pair managed to record their debut album within a few months since the band’s inception.

Lyrics:

And this summer ends with a bang, you can see the autumn leaves leaving its place. I know that you've found what you were looking for something else going faster than this slow beating heart.

we move like shadows in the night keeping it simple we move like sparrows in the spring everything is alright oh life is good today don't you worry, no no... every direction is a new way home, a new way home I think you know I used to be a sparrow I used to be your heart and light we move like shadows in the night on the streets where we used to live and we are keeping it keeping it simple

Lyrics:

we denied every last line in the hope to make it fade away overreacting like the last time that I saw your face as you walked away after I've burned down the evidence the smoke turned into the ghost of you every now and then I pray for the rain to come down and wash away.

Lyrics:

And here we go again and I'm drunk as hell and the sky is not as bright as it used to be. Why can't I let you go forever and here we go again but there's nothing left all the city lights have gone black oh, why can't I let you go I will sink to the bottom like a stone on a chain. I wanna know if you've got some love for me I wanna know if you've got something. Oh sometimes I wish that I could see it. In the morning light your shadow casts upon me and it feels so right

Lyrics:

Oh when the morning light comes you'll see I'm not glowing I always held my head up high watching the world from the rooftops but something else came along and changed my view as you look for heart and desire I look for everything else Oh when the morning lights comes you'll see everything is different from faces to places  and everything else around you I know I don't feel it so I don't have to pretend as you look for heart and desire I look for everything else You think it's so easy but these times are hard I know what I'm looking for and it's not here

Lyrics:

It;s easy to fall in love but you don't know, how to get it out of you. We're lovers on the moon It's easy to fight gravity but you don't know you are floating away We are lovers on the moon our love is on the moon.

Lyrics:

I think I found it way out, lost at sea oh these things never last I've got it all in this head somewhere something found, something missing I can't keep the track of time I think I'm losing it now I thought It was the only way out and there's never an easy way but if I've got it I've got it all and that´s always something You thought you knew me but I changed over time oh these things never last kept you in distance and oh kept you so close and now we're burning towards the end

Give It Up Luke

Lyrics:

When I wake up in the morning would you be gone or stick around? There's nothing left to say I can hear the raindrops fall down and steal another summer day we'll give it all now we'll give it up now And if I'm frozen in this moment then why the hell it feels so warm? we're burning Why can't I just get rid of your spell I guess I haven't figured out how We'll give it all now we're giving up now I am losing all control in a way I never thought I could. I give it up now.

Lyrics:

I'm gonna build myself a new home far away from this gonna leave a door open for anyone to come in and every time the sun comes up I wonder what it feels like to wake up where you are to be there where you are everything's not lost it just takes me a lifetime to get there give me the love you have give me the love you have and even if I walk a thousand miles to reach the point where I find nothing I don't mind because I know I can walk a thousand more just to wake up where you are  to be there where you

Lyrics:

I cannot stand that look in your eyes, So I sit back and wonder why I run in loops and I can't stop I run in loops and I can't stop and I can't stand , no more falling on my knees But I won't let go I won't be long before I see That I won't forget, but I will never go back I run in loops and I can't stop I run in loops and I can't stop and I can't stand no more "falling on my knees". But I won't let go No, I wont let go
