Venus & Mars EP

by Matthew Frederick

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    If you'd like something not quite as good as vinyl but a damn sight better than a download, then the 'Venus & Mars' CD is for you.

    One of a limited run of just five hundred copies, 'Venus & Mars' comes in a simple 7"-style cardboard sleeve, with original imagery from SAF and additional artwork from Steve Roberts of SRL Designs. It also handily fits into the glove compartment of your car, where you'll forget about it until you eventually need to have a bit of a clean-out before the MOT.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Venus & Mars EP via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

Track Name: Venus & Mars
Do you remember the time
It was after dark
We climbed over the gates
And into the park
We lay on the grass
And we looked at the stars
You said you were from Venus
And I was from Mars
And I laughed...

It seems so long ago
Since you were mine
So long ago
A different time
And I hope that you still think of me
Yes I hope that you still think of me
Once in a while

And then it started to rain
As we ran through the street
To the doorway of that record shop
Where we used to meet
You looked up at me
With that little smile
Cos you knew
That I'd wanted you for a while
Oh that beautiful smile...

It seems so long ago
Since you were mine
So long ago
A different time
And I hope that you still think of me
Yes I hope that you still think of me
Once in a while

And I know
I'm just twenty-four hours from you...
Track Name: Somewhere, Someday
When I was young and in love
I thought everything would be okay
Now I'm old and alone
And the colour has faded to grey
And I haven't seen you
Since the day you sailed away
But I hope that I'll see you again
Somewhere, Someday

Now I've heard that you've got
A little place in Ohio
And I hope that you're happy
If you're not then I want you more
Well I drive to the coast
And I look out from the shore
Hoping one day you'll come
Sailing back for ever more

And I haven't seen you
Since the day you sailed away
But I hope that I'll see you again
Somewhere, Someday
No I know that I'll see you again
Somewhere, Someday
Track Name: Slipping Away
Drifting away, my friend
I'm never gonna see you again
You're slipping away, my friend
I'm never gonna see you again
No I'm never gonna hold you again

You're slipping away
You're slipping away
You're slipping away
From me...
Track Name: Sky Fall Down
When the sky falls down
Crashes to the ground
I know you will be
Lying next to me

When it's dark and cold
And I wanna go home
I know you will be
Waiting there for me
Track Name: Hello, Bo!
Hello, Bo!
I just wanted you to know
That I really, really miss you.

And you know, Bo
I can't wait until
Tomorrow when I see you

You make me smile
And I haven't for a while
Yes you're the sun
Shining through the rain

And you know, Bo
I can't wait until
Tomorrow when I see you again
