Has this been the longest goodbye of your life?
Has this been the only way you survive?
As it burns each night down in a silent rage
And steals your words til you can’t engage
But you know there is a morning you just can’t see

Has this been the hottest year of your life?
Did you wake up and nothing had changed overnight?
Did the wind that blows away your doubts and pain
Open up the sky for seven more long days of rain?
And sweep you away even further, so you just couldn’t see?

Has she been the only one on your mind?
Is she moving forward while you stay behind?
In a haze of alcohol and misgivings
Is this what she meant when she said start living?
And you know you can’t be anywhere but by her side

Would you cross the city, just to hear her breathe?
Is the night that much darker when she decides to leave?
Do unfinished sentences and prevaricating eyes
Fill you with questions, until you apologize

cuz you know you can’t be anywhere but by her side
And you know you can’t be anywhere but by her side


from Live Static Roots Oberhausen, Germany, track released July 10, 2020

The Stephen Stanley Band Toronto, Ontario

Stephen came up through the Canadian music scene with The Lowest of the Low. After years of touring, a gold record for 'Shakespeare My Butt' and some hard knocks, he thought of walking away from music. He never did quit though then his friends and fellow musicians urged him to form The new Band.

New record coming Fall 2017
