about

Between Lust and Fear, the second record from London’s The Saturday Boy, is to be released worldwide on 26th August 2016 via Northview Records.

Retaining their trademark warm alt-country sounds, brutally honest lyrics and plenty of pedal steel guitar, The Saturday Boy are also pushing boundaries with their second release. “Stormy Skies” edges close to John Martyn/Nick Drake territory, the epic gloomy indie rock of “Table Decorations” is reminiscent of The National, radio friendly melodic pop choruses feature on “Lightweight Lover” and there are even some fuzzy guitar solos…

Track Name: Lightweight Lover
I always knew she would break my heart
I was punching above my weight from the start
And I fell in an early round no doubt
In the bedroom I believe that is what they call a knockout

So now I've got to get back in the ring
No other opponent could mean a thing
Reassure me
And tell me that..

Forgiveness is not a weakness
I want a re-match girl
Forgiveness is not a weakness
I want a re-match now
I'll be your light weight lover
Your light weight lover

But it's okay to be the underdog
It makes some girls tick to bet against the odds
If never again we meet between the sheets
I'll remember when our team were top of the league

And now I am back in the ring
Some opponents seem exciting
But still
it's true that..

Forgiveness is not a weakness
I want a re-match girl
Forgiveness is not a weakness
I want a re-match girl
I'll be your light weight lover
Your light weight lover
Track Name: Stormy Skies
My father warned me, in his subtle way
There's more to life than the pay
The sting of chemicals in the air
Alarm rings for the early shift

Do something you love
With your days
Spend time with family
Embrace change
Even under stormy skies
Stormy Skies

With hindsight, looking back
The factory was no life to live
No fresh air, creativity
Something meaningful for you three

Do something you love
With your days
Spend time with family
Embrace change
Even under stormy skies
Stormy Skies
Track Name: Stop
I feel like the subject of a shit song
Sung by an American in stilettos and a thong
There's a dance beat, they call it EDM
Not much substance and written by sexist men

I need to stop sleeping around
Stick with the nice girl and the friends that you've found
I need to stop messing around
Stick with the nice girl (nice girl....)
Is that you?

The content of the song I know is wrong
The American croons the misogynist tune
There's a sexist video like all the hits
Lots of skin and plenty of tits

I need to stop sleeping around
Stick with the nice girl and the friends that you've found
I need to stop messing around
Stick with the nice girl (nice girl....)
Is that you?
Stick with the nice girl (nice girl....)
Is that you?
Track Name: Broken
When sorrow as a feeling
Feels familiar and comforting
That's how you know
Now is the time to show

That you could stop searching
For a change from the hurting
And just let life play
Ignore what friends say

Broken now
Can't love you don't remember how
And that is why, you need to stop
Stop searching just stop

The cycle keeps on
Hoping she might be the one
But something is missing
There's lust but no yearning

You keep on, carry on
A path of destruction
Wish to cause no hurt
To a girl oh-so innocent

Broken now
Can't love don't remember how
And that is why, you need to stop
Stop searching just stop

Broken now
Can't love you don't remember how
And that is why, you need to stop
Stop searching just stop
Track Name: Table Decorations
I'll meet you in the park
We can discuss what went wrong and how I broke your heart
I'll tell you i'm sorry for my part
In my meltdown this christmas

I know I smashed all of the table decorations
I was a drunken mess, I could hear no persuasion
To slow down, take stock, partake in conversation
I was already on my way down

And I know we can't repair
What is in the past will always be there
But there's nothing I could have done
to avoid this darkened path

I know I smashed all of the table decorations
I was a drunken mess, I could hear no persuasion
To slow down, take stock, partake in conversation
I was already on my way down

I was already on my way down
I was already on my way down down
Smokey told me about the tears
I was already on my way down
I was already on my way down down
Smokey told me about the tears - Tears Of A Clown
Track Name: Just My Luck
I was your English boy, your reliable fuck
Now beneath the southern stars, the constellation of crux
No not the first lover, from way down south
But you had a hold on me, big lips and pirate mouth

10,000 miles away
Thinking back
I was quite fond of you
Just my luck
Just my luck

I was your Kiwi girl, a feisty character
But you're still in London town, living out the same chapter
You won't be my last lover, you know I'm on the radio
But I'll sure reminisce, and play you on my show

10,000 miles away
Thinking back
I was quite fond of you
Just my luck
Just my luck
Just My Luck (C.e.. c.i.. lia)
Just My Luck (C.e.. c.i.. lia)
Track Name: Countertop
I would like to sleep with you tonight
Bend you over the counter top
And then I'll regret it in the
And then I'll regret it in the morning

And like me you wanted too
I could see it in your nordic eyes
You really wanted me
You really did scream that night

And now we've had time to reflect
Come to think of it
Memories are 'handy' in
Memories are handy in lonely times

I don't regret it
I don't regret it this morning
