Richard Harrison (@mr_spoon) Even the dusty cupboards of Hope & Social contain better tracks than any naked twerker craps into the charts. A few new songs to enjoy and some great versions. Favorite track: Crash Into Me.

All the way to San Francisco, Without a care in the world, Without a care. All the way to the edge of the ocean, And I breathe and I sigh, With the tide. Where did it go to? Where did it go to? Drive the night through a state and its city, Every road every town, Are all mine. All the way to insomnia city, With my heart in my mind, And a smile. Where did it go to? Where did it go to? We've given up on a dance in the morning, We've given up on it's us versus them, We've given up on all that we promised in San Francisco. Now I'm home and I'm back in my city, Everything has a place, And a weight. Now I'm home and I'm king of my castle, But you've changed and you've grown. Without me. Where did it go to? Where did it go to? We've given up on a dance in the morning, We've given up on it's us versus them, We've given up on all that we promised in San Francisco.

Is this where we started I can't believe it's true Cos we're broken hearted the cracks are showing through Just like Elvis Presley were all shook up inside If to stay and fight or to run away and hide In the arms of love is where grew Well the leaves are falling I've got those wedding blues Oh what could have been well it's not for me of you Hush now darling well hush now don't you cry I'm a good good man but I'm not that great a guy In the arms is where we grew So burn it up As our heads whirl and our toes curl Writhing on the back seat So burn it up Til our hands bleed and our lips steal Riding round the ring road Burn it up Till our hearts yearn and our minds learn It's all we ever needed Burn it up So tomorrow morning we'll let the children know Maybe old St Nick could make all our problems go Now the snow is falling please now don't you cry Cos I choose to stay and I choose to make this right Now here comes the Autumn here come the leaves Stay with me in winter So burn it up As our heads whirl and our toes curl Writhing on the back seat So burn it up Til our hands bleed and our lips steal Riding round the ring road Burn It up Till our hearts yearn and our minds learn It's all we ever needed Burn it up

I gave you the best I've got I leave you with a parting shot and I'm gone Don't stop, to stop, refrain I hit the door, I face the rain and I'm gone It's habit forming this habitat Of no regrets and don't look back I gave you the best I've got I leave you with a parting shot and I'm gone It's okay, I'm not scared of the rain I stay here, I won't move or complain I know you, you'll switch the blame You'll make it feel a better day and it's not So I'll take the simple things I'll learn to love a wedding ring and a job It's okay, I'm not scared of the rain I stay here, I won't move or complain It's okay, I'm not scared of the rain I stay here, I won't move or complain

There's a place we can stay Rest your head upon my lap and put your eyes away There's a place we can be Talk yourself to sleep, and leave your words with me There's a place we can hide Let your breathing ease, and all your fears subside There's a place we can pray Leave your thoughts with me and I'll set them on their way I saw you. We'll meet again. I saw you. We'll meet again. There are so few days Let's starve the night of rest and talk until we find a way To arm ourselves with dreams To fight the deadliness of boredom and monotony So don't mark your brow With the ugly lines of disappointment weighing down Don't mark your time Filling up your days with things you should have left behind. I saw you. We'll meet again. I saw you. We'll meet again. I saw you. We'll meet again. I saw you. We'll meet again. I saw you. We'll meet again. I saw you. We'll meet again. I saw you. We'll meet again. I saw you. We'll meet again. There's a place we can stay Turn your face up to the light and put your shame away There's a place we can be Give up your old routine, take this philosophy There's a place we can hide Watch the world a while, you set it racing by There's a place we can be Put your faith in God, but leave your doubt for me.

about

A collection of odds 'n' sods found lying around The Crypt floor and offered up in an ever expanding album. We'll add to this as and when we do a good old sort!

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...
