    DIE ALONE LYRICS

    It’s the end and I’m drowning
    Is it too late for me to run
    It hates me, it mocks me
    And every day I curse this sunrise

    There’s nothing in the shadows
    And you will be the one to die alone
    Forgive me when I fall
    And I will be the one to die alone

    Can you wash the rain away
    I can see the afterlife
    It wants me, it haunts me
    And every day I fear this sunrise

    There’s nothing in the shadows
    And you will be the one to die alone
    Forgive me when I fall
    And I will be the one to die alone

    For every broken soul
    For every broken faith
    For everything that’s died inside

    There’s nothing in the shadows
    And you will be the one to die alone
    Forgive me when I fall
    And I will be the one to die alone

    There’s nothing in the shadows
    And you will be the one to die alone
    Forgive me when I fall
    And I will be the one to die alone

    For every broken soul
    For every broken faith
    For everything that’s died inside

    ----------------------------------------------------------

    'Die Alone' is basically a note I had written to myself a couple years ago, and it seemed to really fit the music, said frontman Howard Jones. We are more than excited to release our album Revival, and we all feel it's been worth every bit of the struggle to get it done. See you all soon on the road.

    The Los Angeles, CA trio — the aforementioned Jones, Francesco Artusato [guitar], and Ryan Wombacher [bass] — drew from five years together as Devil You Know to forge a wholly distinct path. Amidst myriad struggles, they returned from the brink under a new name.

    2016 was a really tough year for us as a band, both personally and professionally, explains Jones. While going through some lineup changes, we were also battling some issues with the use of our band name. At the same time, I was trying to deal with the loss of my oldest brother, which really hit me hard. During that time, we just bonded like never before. We all meshed because we faced war together. We survived. At the end, we realized we were a real band and decided to make an album representing that resilience. Honestly, we came out of the dark. The name literally signifies what we went through.

    It was time for a change, the singer continues. It was time for us to try and stretch our wings. We were really going for songs. The structuring made more sense. I was focused on melody and harmony. I really cut loose. All in all, it was the perfect storm. We had so much fun making this, because there were really no restrictions other than creating a heavy and catchy body of work.

    The Light the Torch lineup boasts one of the most esteemed pedigrees in modern heavy music. Jones spent a decade at the helm of GRAMMY® Award-nominated and gold-selling titans Killswitch Engage. Artusato had much-lauded stint in All Shall Perish and has attained status as a shred virtuoso. Wombacher was a staple in Bleeding Through for well over a decade. For Revival, they are joined by Extinction A.D. drummer Mike Scuzz Sciulara behind the kit.

    The album artwork was designed by Artusato.

    Directed by Orie Mcginness

    Lyrics
    V.1)
    Dead inside, I’ve lost my mind.
    Trapped inside the ties that bind.
    Waste away another day, Wish all the fear would fade away.
    Just fade away-just fade away-just fade away

    CH.1)
    So bury me in a memory of yesterday, cause it’s killing me.
    So bury me in a memory of yesterday, cause it’s killing me.

    RE-Intro)
    (Scream) KILLING ME

    V.2)
    I lie awake in my mistakes, failure lays with suffering.
    On the edge I see my fate, another hole I can’t escape.
    I can’t escape-I can’t escape-I can’t escape

    CH.2)
    So bury me in a memory of yesterday, cause it’s killing me.
    So bury me in a memory of yesterday, cause it’s killing me.

    BRIDGE)
    I see the cobwebs building up and my brain can’t take enough and I’d rather feel hate than love, and I’d rather feel hate than love.

    I see the cobwebs building up and my brain can’t take enough and I’d rather feel hate than love

    SOLO


    CH.3) So bury me in a memory of yesterday, cause it’s killing me.
    Me.
    So bury me in a memory of yesterday, cause it’s killing me.

    I’d rather feel hate than love. I’d rather feel hate than love. I’d rather feel hate than love, cause it’s killing me.

    So bury me in memory of yesterday, cause it’s killing me.

    LYRICS:

    I can never be all that you want from me
    I am broken I will fail you constantly

    There's nothing left that we can say
    Nothing gold can ever stay
    It's easier to run away
    It's easier to curse than pray

    No sacrifice, now burn it at the altar

    I can never be all that you want from me
    I am broken I will fail you constantly
    Return to the safety of disbelief

    You want to lay your doubt aside
    Faith has nowhere left to hide
    I'm the one with hollow eyes
    I'm the one you now despise

    I can never be all that you want from me
    And I am broken I will fail you constantly
    Return to the way that you bleed for me
    Return to the safety of disbelief

    For you and all your dreams
    I feel nothing

    And I am broken I will fail you constantly
    Return to the way that you bleed for me
    Return to the safety of disbelief

    I can never be all that you want from me
    And I am broken I will fail you constantly
    Return to the safety of disbelief

    I can never be all that you want from me
    And I am broken I will fail you constantly
    Return to the way that you bleed for me
    Return to the safety of disbelief

    For you and all your dreams
    I feel nothing

The 1986 hit single No One Is to Blame reached no. 4 on the U.S. charts.

    LYRICS
    Whoa whoa whoa whoa o o
    do do do do doo

    Feels like I’m walking on air
    No more rain clouds over my head
    And I’m feeling good and it feels so right and I cant stop dancing

    I choose the difficult road and its working out super fine
    I got my permanent smile and I’m feeling like dancing dancing

    Stay with me
    We’re in this together (We’re in this together together)
    Stay with me we’ll make this thing right tonight

    Feels like I’m walking in mud
    Rain clouds stuck right over my head
    And I’m grinding through and it don’t feel right
    And I feel like crying

    I choose the difficult road and I spend my days marking time
    Oh how can I dance with lead in my shoes
    I did it all for you

    Stay with me
    We’re in this together (We’re in this together together)
    Stay with me we’ll make this thing right tonight

    Stay with me Stay with me
    We’re in this together
    Stay with me Stay with me
    We’re in this together

    Stay with me Stay with me
    We’re in this together
    Stay with me Stay with me
    We’re in this together

    I choose the difficult road and its working out super fine
    I got my permanent smile and I’m feeling like dancing dancing

    Stay with me
    We’re in this together (We’re in this together together)
    Stay with me we’ll make this thing right tonight

    Stay with me

    6:26

    I love you whether or not you love me
    I love you even if you think that I don't
    Sometimes I find you doubt my love for you
    But I don't mind
    Why should I mind
    Why should I mind

    What is love anyway
    Does anybody love anybody anyway
    What is love anyway
    Does anybody love anybody anyway

    Can anybody love anyone so much that they will never fear
    Never worry never be sad
    The answer is they cannot love this much nobody can
    This is why I don't mind you doubting

    What is love anyway
    Does anybody love anybody anyway
    What is love anyway
    Does anybody love anybody anyway

    And maybe love is letting people be just what they want to be
    The door always must be left unlocked
    To love when circumstance may lead someone away from you
    And not to spend the time just doubting

    What is love anyway
    Does anybody love anybody anyway
    What is love anyway
    Does anybody love anybody anyway

    What is love anyway
    Does anybody love anybody anyway
    What is love anyway
    Does anybody love anybody anyway

    What is love anyway
    Does anybody love anybody anyway
    What is love anyway
    Does anybody love anybody anyway...

  • Howard Jones - New song Official video. Top Of The Pops 1983

    3:11

    Nice quality video recorded from Top Of The Pops 1983. Howard Jones (born John Howard Jones, 23 February 1955, Southampton, Hampshire, England) is a Welsh musician. According to the Guinness Book of British Hit Singles & Albums, Jones is an accomplished singer-songwriter who was a regular chart visitor in the mid 1980s with his brand of synthpop. Jones, who was equally popular in the U.S., appeared at Live Aid. Allmusic journalist, Stephen Thomas Erlewine adds, Jones was one of the defining figures of mid 1980s synthpop. His music merged the technology intensive sound of new wave with the cheery optimism of hippies and late 1960s pop. Jones racked up a string of hits in the mid and late 1980s, before he retreated into being a cult figure in the 1990s.
    He appeared as a solo artist in local venues in High Wycombe, before inviting the mime artist Jed Hoile, who used to do improvised choreography, whilst doused in white paint, as Jones played behind him. In 1983 Jones hired the Marquee Club in London and invited record labels to come and see him perform. After a well-received John Peel session he obtained support slots with China Crisis and OMD before signing to WEA in the UK and Elektra in the U.S. in the summer of 1983.

    After Jones' contract with Warner Music UK expired, he concentrated on production, songwriting and running a successful vegetarian restaurant called 'Nowhere'.[3] He started his own record label, Dtox, and produced an album, Working in the Backroom, in his own recording studio ('The Shed'). The album was made available only at concerts and through his official website.[1][4]



    In October 2006, Jones released Building Our Own Future as a podsafe track, as one of several established artists looking to use podcasts as a new means of promoting their music and tours. The song debuted at No.1 on the PMC Top10 on 29 October 2006 and spent four weeks at the top of the chart. Howard's track Revolution of the Heart spent five weeks at No.1 on the PMC Top10 during 2007 and finished the year as the No.2 song in their annual countdown.

    Jones embarked on an acoustic tour of Australia in 2007, beginning in Brisbane and concluding on 5 April in Perth. The Revolution Remixed & Surrounded album was followed in November by Live in Birkenhead. Jones performed another acoustic set, with other 1980s acts at the Retrofest, on 1 September 2007 at Culzean Castle in Ayrshire, Scotland. Jones also went into the studios with The Young Punx to record vocals for their summer 2008 release, And The Feel Goes On.

    Jones is a member of Sōka Gakkai International, and is musical director of one of its choirs, the Glorious Life Chorus. The chorus performs some of his songs in its repertoire, including Building Our Own Future and Respected. He returned to Australia again in 2009, this time accompanied by vocalist Laura Clapp and music technologist Robbie Bronnimann. On 26 February 2009 Jones was at the UK premiere of Roland's new V-Piano in Bristol and performed Hide and Seek. He continues to tour, and played the 'Big Hair Affair 2009' on 1 August 2009 at the Ryedale Arena, Pickering, North Yorkshire.

    His latest album, Ordinary Heroes was released in November 2009, and he toured London, Cardiff and Manchester with a string section and the Morriston Orpheus Choir (in St David's Hall in Cardiff). A single, Soon You'll Go, preceded the album's launch.

    According to the local BBC website, Jones currently lives in Creech St Michael, near Taunton, Somerset.

    Jones is a member of the board of directors for the Featured Artists Coalition.

    On 6 November 2010, Jones released re-masters of Human's Lib, and Dream Into Action (the re-masters were also available in a box set, which has since sold out) on his dtox webstore. The re-masters of The 12 Album, and Action Replay are set to be released on 21 February 2011; also available in a limited edition box set. Please visit my other Channel. Keep Rockin!.

    The original Extended Mix from 1985 is a classic but this newer mix from 2005 is pretty amazing as well. It was remixed by Howard's current collaborator Robbie Bronnimann who also plays with him live and was also charged with remastering the back catalogue for release in recent years.

    You can only get this in one place though and that's the bonus disc that comes with the Australian CD pressing of Howard's 2005 album Revolution Of The Heart
