Shoot The Cricket

One Album

A piano, a story, and two dulcet voices comprise the foundation of Shoot the Cricket, the alternative-pop brainchild of Jenni and Liesel Bognar.
Born into a military family, the sisters began their lives in Texas and moved around the country more than a dozen times until they finally settled in Virginia, where they are currently based. In the thick of it all, the Bognar sisters found themselves a permanent home in the warm embrace of music.
Storytelling is a key component of personal experience or a real-world event and seeks to ignite a feeling of excitement about life and its mysteries. Lately, the sisters have been drawing inspiration from an unlikely muse: their from our upcoming EP for her because she writes us notes whenever we travel for work. She really misses us and we always
At times, it can be surreal to think that Shoot the Cricket got their start on YouTube, where they would perform song covers in front of a webcam in their bedroom and watch the views and likes pour in thereafter. While their sound has since greatly evolved, one thing remains constant: their masterful ability to fuse their classical music background with pop music, which in turn creates unique musical masterpieces that take the listener on an upbeat journey through the daily hustle and bustle of life.
Bognar sisters thus far. Carter, American Idol Season 7 finalist Jason Castro, and earned the praise of The Click Five frontman Kyle Patrick for their renditions of his -year hiatus, things are coming up roses once again for the duo as they gear up for the late-2018 release of their sophomore EP, which is produced by Austin Bello of Forever The Sickest Kids fame.
Their new record includes five tracks Stars By adding more honesty to their songwriting and working closely with Bello to craft their art, Shoot the Cricket are debuting a new sophisticated sound that serves to hook, engage, and kindle a range of emotions within the listener as wide as their musical range.

Lyrics:

I don’t know why you don’t like me What did I ever do to you? Every time we’re in a room together I’m hearing whispers I know that aren’t true. So if you have a problem take it up with me And not with everyone else you see I’ll come at you faster than a bullet No regrets, you know I’m set to automatic You must be tired from being so dramatic You may be mean, but sweetheart I’m the queen. So if you have a problem ,take it up with me, And not with everyone else you see If you have a problem take it up with me And not with everyone else you see. Fight me, fight me Honey why you sittin’ so scared come fight me Fight me, if you despite me If you think I’m oh so bad, give me the pleasure I’ve never had and fight me. I’m not scared I know I am a champion And you my dear ,are just a sad has been And if you have a problem then I got one with you I’m not one for confrontation but I got something to prove If you keep on talkin’ say it loud and clear If you’re such a big shot darlin’ walk right over here and fight me . Fight me, honey why you sittin’ so scared come fight me Fight me, if you despite me If you think I’m oh so bad, give me the pleasure I’ve never had and fight me. Fight me So if you have a problem , take it up with me And not with everyone else you see Fight me , fight me, Honey why you sittin’ so scared come fight me Fight me, fight me, If you think that I’m so bad, give me the pleasure I never had and fight me. Fight me, honey why you sittin’ so scared come fight me Fight me if you despite me If you think I’m oh so bad give me the pleasure I’ve never had and fight me.

Lyrics:

Stars, you’re always covering the evening sky You’re such a delight to the eye But where are you tonight? Oh stars, why do you hide ? Do you have somebody by your side ? Or are you sad and alone? Shine, oh you shine tonight It’s just until the morning light then I promise I’ll go home Shine, oh you shine real bright Shine for me And I’ll sing for you, my special friends. Stars, even though you are real far I know where you really are You’re in my heart. Oh stars, I wonder how your galaxy looks I don’t believe those science books. Could you show me around? Shine, oh you shine tonight It’s just until the morning light then I promise I’ll go home Shine, oh you shine real bright Shine for me And I’ll sing for you, my special friends. Twinkle, twinkle, little stars, come back to this world that’s ours And shine, oh you shine tonight It’s just until the morning light then I promise I’ll go home Shine, oh you shine real bright Shine for me, and I’ll sing for you Oh shine for me and I’ll sing for you, my special friends.

Lyrics:

I’ve packed my bags I’m leaving there’s nothing left here to do I say my peace to the city and the lone roads hiding in view And I can tell from your letters you’ve been missing me too No longer a wanderer I’m coming back to you Yes I’m on my way home Yes, I’m on my way home And now I’m coming back to you, And now I’m coming back to you So many miles to go but it’s worth it when I see your face I’d walk you to the moon and back and travel through time and space You are my only sunset you are my saving grace No longer a wanderer I finally found my place Yes, I’m on my way home Yes I’m on my way home And now I’m coming back to you, and now I’m coming back to you But in a day or two I will have to say goodbye to you Yes, in a day or so , you’ll be begging me please don’t, please don’t go I am on my way home, I am on my way home, I am on my way home, I am on my way home, I am on my way home, I am on my way home, I am on my way home, I am on my way home Yes, I’m on my way home And now I’m coming back to you Yes I’m on my way home

Lyrics:

Everybody needs a little love sometimes Everybody needs a little love You can’t say no tonight as you go, cuz everybody needs a little love. Everybody needs a little smile sometimes Everybody needs a little smile Forget all your trials just for a while everybody needs a little smile. How can you say no? I just can’t let you go. Everybody needs a little hope sometimes Everybody needs a little hope When push comes to shove, you’ll always need love Everybody needs a little hope. How can you say no? I just can’t let you go. Everybody needs a little love sometimes Everybody needs a little love You can’t say no tonight as you go, cuz everybody needs a little love.

Somebody's Watching You Shoot The Cricket

Lyrics:

You and your double life, smooth as satin and rusted like a knife You and your alibi, one’s a lie You walk around this place, hands in your pocket a smile on your face Trying to sell the world golden lace. And you fool everyone you meet (but you’re not fooling me) Every stranger on the street (oh no no, you don’t know me) And no matter what you do, somebody’s watching you (somebody’s watching you) Somebody’s watching you (somebody’s watching you) Somebody’s watching you. You built your house of cards, an ace is always on its guard And the bigger they are the harder they fall, You’ll fall hard. And you fool everyone you meet (but you’re not fooling me) Every stranger on the street (oh no no, you don’t know me) And no matter what you do, somebody’s watching you (on and on and on, somebody’s watching you) ( on and on an don ), somebody’s watching you (on and on and on ) somebody’s watching you (on and on and on ) somebody’s watching you Someone’s always lurking behind doors you can’t see Your hands are so dirty there’s no way you’ll hurt me now. Fool everyone you meet (but you’re not fooling me) every stranger on the street (oh no no, you don’t know me) and you’re lying through your teeth (yeah yeah yeah, I’m not biting) and no matter what you do, somebody’s watching you (on and on and on, somebody’s watching you) (on and on and on, somebody’s watching you) (on and on and on somebody’s watching you) on and on and on I’m always watching you.
