about

Ed Hale and the boys deliver 13 tracks (plus bonus material) on this follow up to 2002's worldly Rise and Shine. Sleep with you is darker (Junkie, Vicodin) and rocks harder (I'm not the only one, Sleep with you) than its predecessor. Its mood is at once passionate and romantic (Beautiful one, Veronica) and cheeky (Minnie Driver, Girls) and fun (Super hero girl). Gone are the multi-cultural world-music leanings as the band delivers over the top alt-rock and brit-pop ear candy dressed up in beautiful melodies and soaring guitar. This is the heaviest the band has ever sounded, and the most authentic as a "rock band" as evidenced by the pounding bass and drums on almost every track that warrants such. Not that Sleep with you is all rock. As much as it rocks, its not. Guilty is as radio friendly pop as you can find, and Keep moving on could be an alternate track from U2's All that you cant leave behind. The album closes with the delicate and gorgeous fire-side ballad Little tree, and then explodes into a thunderous one chord anthem complete with Zeppelinesqe strings and some seriously head-spinning guitar before trailing off into dreamy samples and feedback.

Track Name: Sleep With You
What can I do to sleep with you
What can I do? To sleep with you?

I don’t want to go out with you
Cause I don’t think that wed last too long
I don’t want to spend hours talking with you
I’ve already heard that song
I don’t want to get to know you
But girl I’d really like to show you
That I don’t really care girl
Whatever we do
Just as long as I end up sleeping with you
Uh huh
What can I do to sleep with you
What can I do? To sleep with you?

I can give you money
I can buy you a car
I can call my agent and he’ll make you a star
I will buy you jewelry
I can buy you a ring
Let me in your pants I’ll give you anything
I want to be your lover
I can’t be your man
But if I can’t please you baby then nobody can
I want to kiss you and hold you
Many times I have told you
I can make you come like it’s never been done,
Tonight
Your body’s looking oh so tight/very nice
What can I do to sleep with you
What can I do? To sleep with you?
Track Name: Superhero Girl
I thought you were my prize
Cause girl you blew my mind
I looked up to you
But you treated me unkind
I know you’ll disagree
Ain’t that just like you
You spoil everything
And then put the blame on me
And now you’ve run away
Am I supposed to cry?
[Girl] I guess you weren’t the one
[And] You [just] wasted all my time
Because…

I’m still waiting
I’m still waiting
For my super hero
For my super hero girl

I see you/her in my dreams
You’re/she’s everywhere it seems
I will wait for you/her
And I know you’ll/she’ll wait for me
I feel her in my heart
I see her in my brain
Shell come to me
to wash me clean and
take away this pain
But….

I feel you in my heart
And girl your in my mind
I will wait for you
Until the end of time
And then well run away
Oh so far from here
Girl I don’t care who you are
I just long to have you near
Track Name: I'm Not The Only One
Someone else is scared
Someone else cant sleep
Someone else is paranoid
Someone else sees black
Everywhere he looks
Someone else is in a void
Someone else just sits
In a chair for days
Thinking how he can avoid
Someone else from moving in
Someone else from taking what it his

I’m not the only one
I’m not the only one
I’m not the only one
That’s felt this way before

When you give your all
But its not enough
To even please your best of friends
And your always sick
From a pain inside
And no one seems to give a damn
When you call on the phone
To someone you think cares
And they act like yo don’t exist
Someone else has felt this way before
Someone else has closed and locked the door
Someone else is crying on their way home
Someone else has died on their bedroom floor

I’m not the only one
I’m not the only one
I’m not the only one
That’s felt this way before
Track Name: Veronica
Get along as you are
Search your heart
And soon you’ll find your way back home
Paint and be happy girl
Just let go
And stop your mind from turning on
Live your life like you see in your dreams
Next thing you know it’s reality
I cannot do it for you I would
If I could veronica
Cause girl I know
That you’ll find
That your love’s a state of mind
And you will see
That you can be
Anything you’ve ever dreamed
And you will feel
When your heart
is on fire for something real

Get along as you are
Tune your soul in
And then you will feel whole
Stop wasting your time
Climb out of your schemes
Open your eyes
And you’ll see what I mean
Your worried you’ll waste your love I know
But open your heart and let it flow
I wish I could do it for you I would
If I could veronica

Cause girl I know
That soon you’ll find
That my love for you is blind
I could try to deny but I would die
I can see you and me
Running through a field of dreams
I know you
Got your plans
But I hope they include me

I heard you say
Don’t touch me that way
But I don’t see you running away
From that first day
That I called your name
I know we’ve never been the same
Oh oh oh veronica
Track Name: Girls
I see trouble ahead in my world
And I feel that I can’t help myself
I see she’s coming crawling for me
And I can’t help myself
I am falling for her
I know she’s on fire for me
I do my best to deny her pleas
She comes to me down on her knees
And I can’t help myself
I’m falling

Guilty I am
I am so guilty I am
Guilty I am
I know I’m guilty I am
Guilty I am
But I’m forgiven

I see trouble ahead in the world
And I know that I could help if I wanted to
But I feel so goddamn scared sometimes
I can’t crawl from the hole that I live in alone
Lord I hear you call for me
[But] I do my best to deny your pleas
Cause I’m so caught up with my own needs
I can’t help it God I know I am

Guilty I am
I am so guilty I am
Guilty I am
I know I’m guilty I am
Guilty I am
But I’m forgiven

When I hear my friends come and calling for me
And I try to do my best to help and to please them
But I feel so goddamn lazy sometimes
I hope they can one day forgive me
cause I am

Guilty I am
I am so guilty I am
Guilty I am
I know I’m guilty I am
Guilty I am
But I’m forgiven
Track Name: Minnie Driver
Talk to me Minnie driver
Talk to me
She’s so cheeky Minnie driver talk to me
na na na na na
Minnie driver
Walk with me Minnie driver walk with me
She’s so sexy walking down the street
The kind of girl I’d like to meet
Minnie driver tastes so sweet
And I like her Minnie driver
Uh uh huh
Cook for me Minnie driver
Cook for me
She’s so handy in the kitchen cook for me
Nananananana Minnie driver
Dance for me Minnie driver dance for me
She’s so sexy on the dance floor
Minnie can I get some more
She looks so hot out on the floor
And I want her Minnie driver
Uh uh huh.
What kind of parents would we be
If we called our child Minnie
Minnie driver
Minnie driver uh huh
Track Name: Vicodin
I’m thinking
I think I am
What was I thinking
I can feel it
But I can’t remember
What I was feeling
Somethings happening
I can feel it
Hey did something happen
Someone’s coming
Did you hear that
I think I’m drooling
I don’t say a word
Bout what I heard
Cause I don’t remember
God I’d like another
But if I take another
Will I forget to breath.
Track Name: Junkie
Pass me another Percocet
I don’t think my mind’s as wet
As it could be
I’m not throwing up yet
See I can still stand up here on my own

They put me on the thorazine
I promised I was going clean
I’m off amphetamines
And now my life is like a dream
Everybody now seems to have a purpose

Is it really like that Is it really like that
Can it really be like that
Having a purpose
Some kind of purpose
Can I get a purpose
You think were doing it on purpose?

Ooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhh
Mmmaaaaaaaaaannnnnnn

I’m just going to sit here for a while
And smile And watch you smile
As you light your cigarette
I’m going to take another
half of that Percocet
And drift away…

I’m a junkie I know
I got no place to go
But no place is better than here
I’m a stranger in town
I’ll sleep on the ground
But man I got nothing to fear

I’d break my back
Just to get some demoral
I tried the crack
I didn’t think it was all that
Cause I like my high
To get me high And keep me there
Out there
To where I don’t know where or when
I’m coming down again

Can I get it like that
Is there a drug like that
Can it be like that
I need a drug like that

Benzodiazepines
Are probably the coolest scene
And I’ve popped the best of them
Nothings like valium
As long you can remember to
Buy some before you run out

I want to get clean
And be a normal person
But I get so bored with it
It’s that old routine
Everyone’s so crystal clean
Everyone they act so mean
Short hair and gossip magazines
And now lets all talk about the
Latest drama on the TV today
Oh fucking boy

Don’t want to live like that
I can’t do it like that
Don’t want to do it like that
I can’t live like that

Cause I’m a junkie I know
I got no place to go
But no place is better than here
I am down on the ground
I hate coming down
I am anxious and so filled with fear
I’m a junkie
I’m a junkie
junkie
Track Name: Watching Shira Cry
I know you but you don’t know me
But I sit here all day and watch you cry
I can see your heart is bleeding
You’re as beautiful to watch as God Himself
Herself

Watching Shira cry
And I don’t know why she cries
Watching Shira cry
And I don’t know why she cries

I want you but you don’t want me
That’s alright I hoe we can still be friends
I can feel your heart is wandering
I don’t mind
I love you more than myself
Myself

Watching Shira cry
And I don’t know why she cries
Watching Shira cry
And I don’t know why she cries
Track Name: Beautiful One
Beautiful one
You can bring back the sun
for my life has hardly been sunny
lately I’ve been
holding on for dear life
but now I believe sometimes baby
beautiful one
you can hold me now I have
let go of the pain I have held on(to)
for so long
beautiful one
we have only begun
to discover/explore all the moon in your dreamy heart
I found my love lying in the grass
Blown in (by) the wind of what’s come and past
(dreaming of love that has come and past)
waited for so long
my hearts beating fast
oh oh oh life isn’t it funny…
beautiful one
you have brought back the sun
to my life
now the world/things is/are less cloudy
lately it seems
I’ve been far from my dreams
But I could believe in us baby
Beautiful one you can hold me now…
Beautiful one…
Track Name: Guilty
I see trouble ahead in my world
And I feel that I can’t help myself

She comes to me down on her knees
And I can’t help myself
I’m falling

Guilty I am
I am so guilty I am
Guilty I am
I know I’m guilty I am
Guilty I am
But I’m forgiven

I see trouble ahead in the world
And I know that I could help if I wanted to
But I feel so goddamn scared sometimes
I can’t crawl from the hole that I live in alone
Lord I hear you call for me
[But] I do my best to deny your pleas
Cause I’m so caught up with my own needs
I can’t help it God I know I am

Track Name: Keep Moving On
Although your heart is broken
And everything’s been taken
You’re left alone and weeping
Can’t even eat or sleep and
Well you know it
And your mama knows it
Everybody knows it
You gotta keep moving on
Keep moving on yea you keep on moving
You gotta keep moving one
When everything’s you made has
Only fallen to pieces
You stumble and your weakened
Can’t even barely breath and
You know it
And your brother knows it
Everybody knows it
You gotta keep moving on

You’re not alone
Though your heart’s filled with fear
You have somebody here
You’re not alone
Though you’re drowning inside you have no need to hide
You’re not alone
Though it feels like your through your whole life’s in front of you
You’re not alone
Though it’s hard for you now
You can make it somehow you’re not alone
Keep moving on
Track Name: Little Tree
Come sit by the fire
And I will watch you smile
Nahal
Your soul’s in view to me
The light of all I see
Is you Nahal
It’s all I see
Nahal

I will taste your lips
And kiss your finger tips
Nahal
In light of our mistake
The best of this affair we’ll make
Well make love all night long
Till we cannot go on at all
Nahal

Come kneel by the fire
And now well say goodbye
Nahal
I’ll long for your embrace
The touch of your soft hand
Across
My face Nahal
Is all I’ll ever want
It’s all I’ll ever want
