Hassles This 'may be' avant garde (at times) but it's 'definitely' happening. Caught me by surprise & seduced me completely.

about

Coops & the Bird Adelaide, Australia

Coops & the Bird tell stories and tempt souls as they weave a rich tapestry of blues inspired folk that interlaces clever lyrics, unique melodies and a driving, rhythmic guitar.

“I was a fan of Coops & the Bird from around about fourteen seconds into their first song, and knew I needed to tell the world about them...”

Track Name: Highway
You arrive • Just in time • For the fight • Of your life • Do or die • Wrong or right • Find a highway • Blow the joint • Make some noise • Suck a shot Drink a lot • Find the keys • Better leave • Do it my way • Find a highway • Do it my way • Find a highway • Come on do it my way • Now we ride Through the night • With our hearts • Set alight • Talkin trash • Risk a crash • Find a highway • Find a room • Undress you • Raid the bar • Leave a scar • On the floor • Out the door • Do it my way • Find a highway • Do it my way • Find a highway • Come on do it my way • Together we'll shoot • Are you feel in brave? • See the stars rushing past us toward the day • Summer sweat down the neck and we're on our way • Take the wheel its a steal on the highway •
Track Name: Liquor & Lace
A dusty road • A velvet glove • Set aside • No need for love • I gotta town to chew through • Gimme a road to misuse • The smoking gun • The cloak of black • I had a home • I wont go back • You see the trail I’m leaving? • BELIEVE I’m tired of living • While others wish to roam • And find themselves a place • I just want liquor and lace • Collected keepsakes • Still rattling in my car • You can have them • Direct me to the bar • I can feel it • Layin upon my face • The world seen through it • Is such a wondrous place • While others wish to roam • And find them selves a place • While others wish to roam • And consume their land with haste • I don’t want • I don’t want • No flowers at my feet • No little prayers for me • Quench my thirst • Don’t need a star to mark • The sorrow in this heart • Hide my face • Quench my thirst • hide my face • Quench my thirst for liquor and lace • What’s it worth? • Well it can replace • All the hurt liquor and lace • I just want liquor and lace • Gimme your heart I don’t want it Gimme your soul And I Will let it go.

Track Name: Never Led (You on for long)
I was tired • Restless from lack of sleep • I imagined you taking care of me • But in the midst of our long awaited first kiss • Could you taste the poison on my lips? • I never led you on for long • You made your own grave • I never led you on • You wanted to keep me in a jar • When all I wanted was a road and my 500 dollar car • What did you expect? That I’d forget? • I’d turn that corner like when we met • I never led you on for long • You made your own grave • I never led you on • With the plans you made • And the hand you played • You turned my heart Into a spade You’re so deadly when you’re angry • You come up real close • And when I want to be alone • You cut me down with your ethnic tones • They travel through my veins and hurt me • They ache inside my bones don’t they? • Well I just want to be alone • I just want to be alone • I tried to believe • In truth I didn’t really • I am who I am that much is true • That may seem blunt as I I knew you too • But I never led you on for long • You made your own grave I never led you on • With the plans you made • And that awful hand you played • You turned my heart into a spade •

Track Name: Crow
There was a crow at my crossroads • It was perched on a fork and it asked me where I wish to go • But I do not know • Could you tell me so? Well he’s oil black and now he’s on my back and he urges me to face some facts • But I tell him No, no I wont • And he says Bee please bee • You have to go down the difficult road • And I say crow I can agree • And I will go with only what I know • If you say so • Well I closed my eyes and chose a track • With the crow still firmly on my back • He runs the show • Me I I too and from • My legs are lead and my feet are black • But we’re onto something • I’m sure of that so we roam • Me and that crow • And I say crow have you seen this road? • Is it one you know? • From the seeds we’ve sown • And he says Bee I do not know • You just have to go • And live with hope • If you say so • There was a crow at my crossroads and I kept him for a pet • Well he mimics strength when my brain is bent • And my fire’s running low • He is my crow • The only one I know • That oil black crow • And so we try • And so we try • With our heads held high • And our hearts full of pride • And so we try • And so we try With our heads held high • And our hearts full of pride • At least we try •
Track Name: Already Guilty
Sun comes up naturally over vacant parking lot • It is rising from the east to uncover me and what I have lost • She was my sister I always believed her • until the day I did not • There are some things more sacred than money and men • She never took from my partner but she was false, as a friend • My time will come to right what is wrong • So I’m already guilty • I’ve committed my crime • She will get hers and I will get mine • There are many more steps for I come to accept • I cling to my reasoning in a dawn of distress • She was my sister you know I will miss her • Though some things I just cant forget • Took off my crucifix so as not to confess • This notion so focused the Lord was impressed • My time has come, to right what is wrong • So I’m already guilty I’ve committed my crime • She will get hers and I will get mine • I’m already guilty the thought is divine • She will get hers and I will get mine • This is my karmic call been sent to watch you fall • You crossed the line and sealed your fate • And if a a sisters blood is pure and matters most of all • This is a worthy bath I’ll make • A plot that’s in the making this deed for undertaking • You’re gonna know it when I’m come • Quicken breath a turn in my step I don’t regret what I’ve done and told her • You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone • Didn’t want to be the one to hear you say that • Didn’t want to be the one to see you do that • You’re gonna miss me now I’m gone • I’ll get mine and you’ll get yours • Your flesh and fate’s a woman scorned • And in time I think I’ll find with our lives, for all entwined • I’m gonna miss you after all • I’ll miss you after all • Oh no no • Oh no •
