One Way Home

from by Hope and Social

supported by
/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    A lovely CD with a bear on it presented inside a bespoke card wallet, designed inside the House of Hope and paid for with the tears of folkie singers. Go on, you'll treasure it for days.

    As usual it's pay what you want or pay what you think it's worth...the minimum price of £1.60 literally only covers the cost of the physical production of the CD and you get a link to the download with your receipt so you can download and listen straight away! We want people to have this album, to enjoy it and to share it around but obviously we're also trying to make ends meet. So if you're not so flush at the moment just pay the £1.60...or just download the digital version below for whatever you want to pay. Even free - we don't even ask for your email address.

    If you feel moved to maybe float us a bit more then as ever, we do very much appreciate it. It's a fairly simple equation... your money makes this music.

    Includes unlimited streaming of All Our Dancing Days via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

lyrics

I'll hold you one more time tonight
With arms as tough as bailer twine
I'll stem your tears with sage advice
The harshest, bluntest facts of life

The sun and the moon and the stars won't budge from where they are
The sun and the moon and the stars won't budge from where they are

You know I'm a betting man
But sorrow holds the strongest hand
Let's play this out with a pair of threes
And a bluffers smile that's hard to beat

The sun and the moon and the stars won't budge from where they are
The seasons and the tides won't care for you or I

So you'll shrink a little bit
No you'll never get over it
But it doesn't mean that you won't smile
So you'll shrink a little bit
No you'll never get over it
But I'll be here for you
We'll be here for you

Play you a symphony in full
The intricate melody won't calm your nerves
Sing you a lullaby you know
The simplest of melodies will sooth your soul
Read you a story out in full
The richest of languages won't calm your nerve
Tell you a simple verse I know
Repeating the same three word could save your soul

The sun and the moon and the stars won't budge from where they are
The seasons and the tides won't care for you or I
The daylight shines, the daylight shines
And the streetlight shines

Play me a symphony you know
I'll play you the same three chords 'cos it's all I know

about

Hope and Social Leeds

In the tradition of the travelling bands, we guess we’re a bit like a Yorkshire E-Street Band...meets Arcade Fire...meets The Faces…meets Dexys Midnight Runners…meets Prefab Sprout…at a party...in an argument about who gets to have sex with David Bowie. We're not as good at describing ourselves as others are, so...

"a big sound from this impressive outfit...inspired, anthemic, great" - Q magazine
