lyrics

Water you down like a thirsty pine.
A kiss of good luck and your finest wine.
I'm ready to roll in my rusty car.
For tonight we'll just follow the northern star.

Don't worry babe I covered my tracks.
Pounded the dirt and studied the maps.
Wipe the radar and ditch your phone.
When the heat is off we'll come and take our thrones.

Light of my life, you opened up my arms.
I fell for your smile and your hopeless charms.
Just me and you in my four wheel drive.
A love for a rush and will to survive.

I'll spin you around in the countryside.
Excuse the limp and my cartoon eyes.
I swear that man recognised my face.
Our love starts wars and it's time to make haste.

Light of my life, you opened up my arms.
I fell for your smile and your hopeless charms.
Just me and you in my four wheel drive.
A love for a rush and will to survive.

Water me down like a drunken swine.
You swore to me things would be just fine.
Our parents would faint if we confessed it all.
But let's not kid, who wouldn't be appalled?

We'll burn out tonight if they've caught our tail.
But put up a fight with a heinous wail.
The thrill is fatal lest we raise our hands.
Stand up today, they will not break my man.

Light of my life, you opened up my arms.
I fell for your smile and your hopeless charms.
Just me and you in my four wheel drive.
A love for a rush and will to survive.

Jake Brooker London, UK

Inspired by artists across generations and good friends including Frankly Lost and Will Whisson, this is a solo project that represents something I have been waiting for the right time to do. That time is probably not now, but why wait any longer?

I am a modern day folk singer trying to bring "ridin' the rails" storytelling back.
