about

[ENG]
First studio album by James Room & Angry Red, a six songs appetizer in shape of EP.
Recorded and produced at Beard Studios, the songs that form TAKE ONE (The EP) are an excellent sample of versatility and style: from Bittersweet Waltz, which could be defined as a contemporary but timeless waltz, to We Brave!, a pirate song inspired by the far west, without ever losing sight on the traditional sounds of the blues and American roots.

Track Name: Bittersweet Waltz
BITTERSWEET WALTZ

IT’S RAINING OUT THERE AND IT’S JUST BEGUN.
A CONCLUSIVE VOICE RELATES THE RUN.
I CARRY IN THE JACKET A SMALL COLORED PORTRAIT.
AND I’M GOING AWAY OF YOU AGAIN.

WELL, I POUR YOUR NAME IN A PAPER GLASS.
I WOULD LIKE TO SMOKE A CIGARETTE, MAN.
THE MOUNTAINS AROUND ME, THEY SEEM TO SWALLOW ME.
AND I’M GOING AWAY OF YOU AGAIN.

I WISH I COULD GIVE YOU MORE KISSES.
I WISH I COULD HOLD YOU STRONGER.
I WISH IT WOULD BE EASIER, BABE.
BUT I’M GOING AWAY OF YOU,
GOING AWAY.
GOING AWAY OF YOU AGAIN.

SOON WILL BE PREPARED THE HOUSE WHERE WE WILL LIVE IN.
TOGETHER, FOREVER, AS I’VE ALWAYS DREAMED.
WILL YOU COME TO DANCE WITH ME THIS BITTERSWEET WALTZ?
THOUGH I’M GOING AWAY OF YOU,
GOING AWAY.
GOING AWAY OF YOU AGAIN.
Track Name: Pourin' Rain
POURIN’ RAIN

THERE’S A STRING OF FORGOTTEN DREAMS OVER THE TABLE
AND A BROKEN BRIDE UNDER THE BRIDGE.
CLOWNS WITH A BROKEN LOOK,
MOUTHS WITH A BROKEN TOOTH.
WHAT’S A HAND WITHOUT FINGERS?
IS LIKE THE SKY WITHOUT STARS AND A LIE INTO YOUR EYES.
WELL, YOU KNOW, JUST LIKE A BABY’S CRYING
I FALL ON MY KNEES AND IT HURTS, AND I BLEED,

I SING:
BABY I NEED YOU, BABY I NEED YOU SO.
BABY I NEED YOU, BABY I NEED YOU SO.
I’M FALLING LIKE THE POURIN’ RAIN.
BABY I NEED YOU SO.

OH, WHEN YOU NEED SOMEBODY.
OH, WHEN YOU MISS SOMEONE.
OH, WHEN YOU AIN’T GOT SUPPORT,
WHEN YOU FALL APART.
WHEN THERE’S NOTHING YOU CAN DO
YOU CRY ON YOUR KNEES AND IT HURTS, AND YOU BLEED,

AND SING:
BABY I NEED YOU, BABY I NEED YOU SO.
BABY I NEED YOU, BABY I NEED YOU SO.
I’M FALLING LIKE THE POURIN’ RAIN.
BABY I NEED YOU SO.
Track Name: Comin' Down
COMIN’ DOWN

NOW IT’S TIME TO TELL THE STORY
OF THE LAST PIECE OF MY LIFE.
I LEFT MY FAMILY, LEFT MY FRIENDS
TO FOLLOW MY OWN PATH.
I LEFT MY JOB, LEFT MY WOMAN,
THAT’S THE HARDEST THING I’VE DONE.
I PACKED HER LOOK, MY TEARS, MY GUITAR,
BUT I DIDN’T TAKE IT ALL.

THEN I ARRIVED TO THIS CITY
WHERE THE WIND TAKES TO THE BONE.
WHERE, THE PEOPLE, THEY DON’T KNOW YOU
AND THEY DON’T CARE WHO YOU ARE.
I’VE FOUND A PLACE TO SPEND MY NIGHTS
THOUGH I CAN’T GET NO SLEEP.
MY CIGARETTE’S DYING IN MY HAND
AND SHE’S NOT HERE WITH ME.

WON’T LOSE MY LONGING,
WON’T LOSE MY FAITH.
BUT, LOVE, I NEED YOU WITH ME
WHEN THE RAIN COMES BACK AGAIN.
WON’T LOSE MY CLEARNESS
THOUGH, SOMETIMES, I GET DRUNK.
I NEED YOU MORE THAN EVER
‘COUSE MY STRENGTH IS COMIN’ DOWN.

IT SEEMS THAT ALL IS EMPTY AROUND ME
AND MY LOOK HAS TURNED COLD.
DON’T WANNA BEG FOR NO ONE’S HELP,
I’LL TRY TO MAKE IT ALL ALONE.
I’M JUST A REFLEX IN A MIRROR
THAT SLOWLY’S TURNING MAD.
I’D WISH I SEE MY FACE AGAIN
AND FEEL MY STRENGTH IS COMIN’ BACK.

LALALA LALA, LALA LALA LALA LALAAA, LA LAA,...
Track Name: Eyes Gone
EYES GONE

HELLO MY LOVE
IT'S BEEN SO LONG
STILL FAR, STILL OUT
STILL RUN, STILL DOWN
IT'S BEEN SO LONG

THE DAYS GO ON
THE DREAMS, THE SONGS
THE DARK HAS GROWN
MY EYES ARE GONE
MY EYES ARE GONE

I HATE TO TALK
I STAY APART
MY PLACE, MY HOME
MY HEART, MY SOUL
MY ONLY LOVE

I CAN'T AVOID THIS ENDLESS PAIN
TO HOLD ALIVE WITHOUT YOU TURNS ME INSANE
BREAKIN' DOWN MY WORLD IN FLAMES
TRYING TO RISE AGAIN, AGAIN, AGAIN

THE GRAVE OF SUN
THIS HOLE OF MOAN
SO HARD TO CRY
SO HARD TO SMILE
SO HARD TO DIE
Track Name: Stranger
STRANGER

HERE, HERE I AM.
WHERE ALL MY DREAMS TURN SMALL.
EVEN THE MOON HIDES BETWEEN THE BUILDINGS.
WHEN ALL I WANT TO DO IS TO STOP CRYING.

ALONE, HOPE’S WHAT I KEEP.
I’VE LOST MY STRENGTH AND ALL OF MY TEARS.
I’M JAILED IN THIS CELL WHERE NO ONE MINDS OF MY SCREAMS.
AND I KNOW I’VE GOT THE KEY, BUT I WISH YOU WERE HERE.

HERE IT SEEMS THERE’S NO CHANCE FOR STRANGERS.
“I AIN’T GOT TIME FOR YOU.
YOU ARE NOT A MEMBER.”
FEEL LIKE LEAVING ALL AND BACK.

NO, I WON’T GIVE UP.
I’LL FIGHT SO HARD TO FIND MY WAY.
NO MATTER IF IT’S SO HARD OR SO EASY.
BUT THE ONLY THING I NEED, IS TO HOLD YOU AGAIN.

HERE IT SEEMS THERE’S NO CHANCE FOR STRANGERS.
“DON’T KNOW WHO YOU ARE.
I CAN’T WASTE MY TIME WITH YOU.”
I CAN’T MAKE IT ALONE.
Track Name: We Brave!
WE BRAVE!

WE MET DOWN AT THE RIVERSIDE.
DIDN'T KNOW IT WAS DARKER THAN PRIDE.
LAUGH AND CRY; YOU LIVE OR YOU DIE
DOWN AT THE TAVERN TO PRAY: WE BRAVE!

THERE WE BLEED, THERE WE HEAL,
THERE WE'RE FOUND BY THE DEVIL JACK KNIFE.
THERE WE DANCED INTO THE FIRE,
DOWN AT THE WOMEN TO PRAY: WE BRAVE!

BLINDED GUIDE, CHARMING FOOLS.
ALWAYS SEEKERS BUT AIN'T GOT NO TOOLS.
RISE YOURSELF, PICK UP YOUR HAT
WHEN YOU'RE DOWN, DOWN, DOWN, DOWN...

LONG, LONG TIME HAS GONE BY.
JIM "THE UNBEATEN" TOOK THE CHANCE TO FLY
TRYING TO FIND THE PROMISE LAND
DOWN AT THE VIRGIN TO PRAY: WE BRAVE!

THERE HE FAILED, THERE HE BUILT.
ANCIENT LAND'S ON THE FIGHT TO SURVIVE.
SOME LEFT HOME, A BRAND NEW LIFE IS
DOWN AT THE FUTURE TO PRAY: WE BRAVE!

BLINDED GUIDE, CHARMING FOOLS.
ALWAYS SEEKERS BUT AIN'T GOT NO TOOLS.
RISE YOURSELF, PICK UP YOUR HAT
WHEN YOU'RE DOWN, DOWN, DOWN, DOWN...

OLDER, WISER, FATHERS NOW.
WONDERING 'BOUT ALL THE SECRETS OF HOW
TO GET CLOSER TO THE SUN -
DOWN AT THE HARBOUR TO PRAY: WE BRAVE!

HERE WE STAND, MAY WE LEAVE.
TIRELESS PEOPLE NEVER GET RELIEF.
DON'T GIVE UP, WE'LL MEET AGAIN
DOWN AT THE TAVERN TO PRAY: WE BRAVE!

BLINDED GUIDE, CHARMING FOOLS.
ALWAYS SEEKERS BUT AIN'T GOT NO TOOLS.
RISE YOURSELF, PICK UP YOUR HAT
THOUGH YOU'RE DOWN, DOWN, DOWN, DOWN...

...DOWN AT THE TAVERN TO PRAY: WE BRAVE!
