Summerbore 02:39
Remember how we tried Remember you and I I wasn’t feeling sure We’d beat the summerbore Remember how we’d hide Down at the top of the line I didn’t know for sure We’d shake the summerbore You can say that I’m your goon You can say that I’m your fool But no one ever told you about that day No one ever told you about betrayal No ever told you that it’s true All the things that made you stay Remember how we dreamed How easy it all seemed I wasn’t feeling sure We’d beat the summerbore Remember all the lies The things we had to hide I didn’t know for sure We’d shake the summerbore You can say that I’m your goon You can say that I’m your fool But no one ever told you about that day No one ever told you about betrayal No ever told you that it’s true All the things that made you stay

I Regret It 03:16
All I wanted was a day without a curfew I need to get away from you and every virtue Sometimes I feel like I’ve been drifting through everyday All I wanted was a day away from high school I need to get away from you and every class rule Sometimes I feel like I’m restricting myself everyday Shouldn’t have said it Now I regret it Though I meant it Was nothing to it I wish I’d read it but I forgot it You used to call me up and ask if we should hang out We used to drink at Park until one of us passed out But now I’m drinking my beer alone Shouldn’t have said it Now I regret it Although you know it What’s wrong about it And though I meant it Was nothing to it I wish I read it But I forgot it All I wanted was a day without a curfew I need to get away from you and every virtue Sometimes I feel like I’ve been drifting through everyday

One day I’ll be mountain climbing One day I’ll be right up there Leaving all the noise behind me Breathing in that mountain air One day I’ll forget the feeling One day I’ll forget the truth Even though you don’t believe me I promise you I’ll write That honey I’m doing fine Someday I will start all over Someday I’ll be moving on Leaving what I don’t think matters Someday this guy is left and gone Someday I’ll forget the flowers Someday I’ll forget that kiss Someday I will write that letter It’s been a long long time And honey I’m doing fine Someday I’ll forget the flowers Someday I’ll forget that kiss Someday I will write that letter I’m through with you, I’m through with this Someday I will start all over Someday I’ll be moving on But first I got to tell you baby It’s been a long long time And honey I’m doing fine

Hey Wake Up 03:06
Hey wake up Your eyes are so pretty Hey let’s go Out to the city You know I need an opinion I need that recreation Ruby isn’t answering Ruby doesn’t wanna hear you sing Hey old friend Don’t feel down I’ll take you to the Best dog walk in town If I could ask your opinion I need some confirmation Ruby came from Sunset Valley But they took her far away I met her in a midtown store We went out out into the rain Hey wake up Your eyes are so pretty Hey let’s go Out to the city You know I need an opinion I need that recreation Ruby isn’t answering Ruby doesn’t wanna hear you sing Ruby isn’t answering

”Jump in the car everyone’s gonna be there” I don’t stand a chance every time that I see her She says ”I hope it’s not cold” while we’re diving on in She’s wearing her life on the out of her skin Oh oh she’ll never know What I really know I love her so All the boys knew that Julys greatest prize Was the sound of her voice and the look in her eyes Radio playing her favorite track She’s singing along to the sound of the ‘Mac Oh oh she’ll never know What I really know I love her so Oh oh she’ll never know How much I really know I love her so I love her so I love her so l love her so I love her so I love her so I love her so

Do You Think 01:54
Do you think, think you can tell? When a fortune comes, it leaves the hands of someone else She could leave without you, she could be the one I still love you more than you ever dreamed of Do you think, think you would know? If you love someone, if she’s right or wrong She could leave without you, she could be the one She still loves you more than you ever dreamed of I got dreams about you Dreams I didn’t think could come true But they do, they do I got dreams about you Dreams I didn’t think could come true I got dreams about you Dreams I didn’t think could come true

Hey hey, I tell you what I believe in Sunday What do you say about 2 o'clock I believe in Sunday What will you do when you hear me ring? Will you be answering that I believe in Sunday Hey hey, what should we do? Do you believe in Sunday We’ll be together all night through Do you believe in Sunday What will you say when you hear me sing Will you be laughing that I Believe in Sunday Sunday I’m gonna go to bed Sunday I’ll listen to what you said Sunday I’m gonna be a man And that’s easy Sunday I’m gonna get a job Sunday I’m gonna call you back Sunday I’m gonna pay my rent And thats easy Sunday I went out for a drink Someday maybe I’ll start to think But this day is not that day at all It’s not easy Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday too It’s Friday what am I supposed to do When Sunday comes I’ll start anew It’s gonna be easy That’s easy

I could never fully describe you in a song So I’m not gonna try Everyday you find a new rock’n roll boy I don’t ask you why Ohh Early morning kisses without regrets Ohh You should have seen your mother, it would be better then You were still awake when I left for school So I’m not gonna try I could hear you laughing in your room I don’t ask you why Early morning kisses without pretend You should have seen your mother, it would be better then First to go Last to leave my mind First to go Last to leave my mind I could never fully describe you in a song So I’m not gonna try Everyday you find a new rock’n roll boy I don’t ask you why

Revisited 00:33
All I really wanted was a stay at home friend Not one that turns out to be outgoing I don’t really care if we stay home till the end Nothing would have satisfied me more Cause I ain’t got that smart job I ain’t got that hair I ain’t got those shoes no And I ain’t got that flair All i really wanted was a knock on my door Don’t tell me that I’m all domesticated I don’t wanna go down to the pub anymore They say that I am old and introverted Cause I ain’t got that smart job I ain’t got that hair I ain’t got those shoes no And I ain’t got that flair I want a stay at home friend baby I want a stay at home friend tonight I want a stay at home friend baby I want a stay at home friend tonight I aint got that smart job I aint got that hair I aint got those shoes no And I aint got that flair

about

Formed by guitarist Maciek Ofstad of Norwegian metal-kings Kvelertak and Norway’s self-proclaimed “country prince” and two time Norwegian Grammy winner Bendik Brænne, The Needs come fully equipped with the necessary musical chops. Also on board, and an integral part of the songwriting is Brænne’s older brother and formerly acclaimed scientist Mattis. Keeping it all together, the rhythm section consists of drummer Nils Jørgen Nilsen, who has spent the last 10 years setting stages on fire with Honningbarna and diving for backline in shallow and cold Norwegian waters, and running man Knut-Oscar Nymo of Rakkestad punkers Oslo Ess.
