Let’s stay together, let’s fall apart
I blame the weather, your jealous heart
Choose to remember, I choose to forget
Life and life only, I paid my debts

Next to me, where you stand, take my blood, take my hand
Rescue me from myself, to the past may it burn in hell

Another fire, a false alarm
Behind the curtains, and safe from harm
They’ll drag the river, nothing to show
The saints, the sinners, you’ll never know

Next to me, where you stand. take my blood, take my hand
Quarter me with a smile and denial, we both walked that mile
Can’t you see, can’t you see, can’t you see, can’t you see

A heavy heart still beating cancel all my plans goodbye my friends
And if by chance we meet again
May we both hold the ground where we stand
Where we stand, where we stand, where you stand. where I stand

Next to me, next to me, take my blood, take my hand
Rescue me from myself, to the past, let it burn in hell


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
