On this street there is a scene that we’ve been caught up in between
And all the pictures of you that I wish I’d never seen
Come flowing back into my brain every time you walk away

And there’s this poison line that runs between us every time
I don’t know if I want to hold you or charge you with a crime
You had your hair pulled back again and I can’t get you off my mind

You have changed and I have been moving slow
but I love you just the same, just the same

And every drink and every line, that voice that serves to undermine
Today, if someone were to ask, she used to be a friend of mine
But I’m still stuck on the tomorrows that we had;
without a doubt they’ve fallen behind

And now I curse the printed page, I curse the digital age
And every picture of you that wanders past me unengaged
There was a time not long ago that I never was afraid; now I fear every day

If this seems strange I’d eat these words and never mention it again
But that really wouldn’t change a thing...

And you may be gone, that’s the thing
I don’t even know where you’ve been,
or where you’re going to, or if we’ll ever talk again

Behind your name there is a song that I’ll be singing all along
And if my voice should start to crack, it doesn’t mean that I’m not strong
It’s just the heartbeat in my temples went too long and all the blood rushed to my head

I don’t expect it anymore, but if you did walk through that door
I don’t know if my eyes would focus or if I’d turn them to the floor
You always said it would get better, and I hope it has for you

And every day I tell myself it’s okay, but it really hasn’t changed a thing...

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
