about

Alt.country, boy-girl heartbreak vocals & plenty of pedal steel guitar.

The Saturday Boy started off as a solo project but quickly grew into a fully fledged band effort with top London musicians. Live you can expect harmonies, atmospheric guitar and lots of pedal steel bringing that country sound to a distinctly english songwriting style.

about

The Saturday Boy London, UK

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” ... more

Track Name: Muswell Hill
Muswell Hill I need to leave ya
Because I love her still
Crouch End you're full of memories
That hurt too much, my friend.

North London it's over it's over
With a tear in my eye I must say goodbye
North London I'm done I am done
With this pain I'm no longer having fun

Alexandra park on a day like today
The city looks so pretty way up here
But it reminds me of another beauty
One that is no longer here

North London it's over it's over
With a tear in my eye I must say goodbye
North London I'm done I am done
With this pain I'm no longer having fun

Muswell Hill I need to leave ya
Track Name: Grant Me A Wish
Take me for granted
And grant me a wish
Walk all over me babe
Yes I'll be your bitch

Take all that is left
From this broken man
Just like you do
'cos I still want you

It's not that easy
I'm still not sleeping
Having trouble breathing
I'm f**king wheezing

Finish what you've started
Continue and destroy
I will sacrifice my
Excuse for a life

Take all that is left
From this broken man
Just like you do
'cos I still need you

It's not that easy
I'm still not sleeping
Having trouble breathing
I'm f**king wheezing

And Iit feels great receiving head
But in the morning I wish I could CTRL-Z
Another night in another bed
Does nothing to help me forget

It's not that easy
I'm still not sleeping
Having trouble breathing
I'm f**king wheezing
Track Name: Belongings
When I look straight in your eyes
It comes flooding back, too much to hide

Pack all your things, your belongings
You're heading south of the river
I think I'm over you, and I'm strong but
These feelings, they make me shiver

I was never good at good bye's
Now you're a memory in my mind

Pack all your things, your belongings
You're heading south of the river
I think I'm over you, and I'm strong but
These feelings, they make me shiver

Pack all your things, your belongings
You're heading south of the river
I think I'm over you, and I'm strong but
These feelings, they make me shiver

oh oh, oh woah oh
oh wowa-oh, oh wo-oh oh...

I can deal with losing a lover again
But this feels like I might be losing a friend
Track Name: Last Love Song
I was taught to be honest all of the time
It's the way all great poets write all of their lines
But it hurts a lot and I can't move on
These songs won't help me find a pretty blond

Let this be the last love song
Please let me be wrong about this one
Let this be the last love song
Please let me be wrong about this one

So if I sing another verse about being broken
Come tell me sonny jim you must be joking
No one wants to hear a bloody misery
it won't help me find a pretty brunette you see

Let this be the last love song
Please let me be wrong about this one
Let this be the last love song
Please let me be wrong about this one

So here we go the last painful rhyme
I'm still in love after all this time
No one needs to know, let's hide it away
Let's not pine over my ginger girl

Please let this be the last love song
Let me be wrong about this one
Track Name: One Day
Darling, i know
That you are hurting
Yes I know
You're in a bad way

But this is something
That you'll need to fix alone
God knows I did try
To help you

One day you'll awake from this deep depression
And then realise that you, you love me
And when that day comes, jump on a plane come visit me
I will have moved on and settled down
Settled down for second best
For second best won't mess me around

Goodbye, I'm sorry
You know i tried
I gave you much more
Than you deserved

One day you'll awake from this deep depression
And then realise that you, you love me
And when that day comes, jump on a plane come visit me
I will have moved on and settled down
Settled down for second best
For second best won't mess me around

And when that day comes jump on a plane come visit me
Things will not be the same, no I will have settled down
Settled down for second best
For second best won't mess me around
Track Name: Maths
I didn't achieve at maths although I tried
But i can take one hundred and subtract eighty five
Still you're throwing all this away for
Fifteen percent of doubt you say

You know you're a fool, but you like the trauma
Oh what would you analyse with out a dilemma
Oh you need me Cash and June and deep down you know this
Oh Better than medicine or therapy... Girl that is me

I get that you're a coward and that's fine
But after a few Jameson ginger ale and lime
guaranteed I will tell you that
You'll not be happy till you take me back

You know you're a fool, but you like the trauma
Oh what would you analyse with out a dilemma
Oh you need me Cash and June and deep down you know this
Oh Better than medicine or therapy... Girl that is me
Track Name: Part Of You
As time passes on
You need them less
But love them more
As time passes by

There something in you
That is in me
I have nothing to prove
I am part of you

And that time will come
When I'll see you no more
You'll still be in my mind
Like an aged sun faded tattoo

There something in you
That is in me
I have nothing to prove
I am part you

Young at heart
But these lines on you face
Tell a beautiful tale
I'm in the lead role

There something in you
That is in me
I have nothing to prove
I am part you
