404 Album Foreign Land


THE INSPIRATION

This is one of my top favourite songs from the 404 era. The song has a great energy and I have always had fun performing this song and what makes it even more unusual I was not the principle writer of the song. Paul had got the basic down before I had heard it and of course I loved it straight away and together we worked to finish it off.

 

RECORDING NOTES

Originally the intention was that Paul was going to sing this song, but as we worked on the melody together he decided to step aside and let me sing it. Like the rest of the songs that we did for the Foreign Land album it was recorded and mixed back at our home recording studio back in Middlesbrough. We then brought the songs down and the tracks where transferred across to the larger studio format. Geoff Dugmore played drums on this studio version of the song.

Those Brown Eyes

Those Brown Eyes

Verse One
Across the room I looked at you,
it was the eyes that gave you away,
I thought you'd feel the same, feel the same.
Three months passed and I saw you again,
we went out then it started to change,
why did you change, love took a fall.

Chorus
Those brown eyes they haunt me,
still I can't give in.
You don't trust me how can I win?
When love dies, the cold nights,
come crashing in,
and old lives are hard to fit in.

Verse Two
Suspicion everytime we met,
questions asked and I'd tell you again,
yew are the only one, only one.
You bought me up just to bring me down,
without your trust how can we live?
Without your trust there is nothing at all!

Chorus
Those brown eyes they haunt me,
still I can't give in.
You don't trust me how can I win?
When love dies, the cold nights,
come crashing in,
and old lives are hard to fit in.

Chorus
Those brown eyes they haunt me,
still I can't give in.
You don't trust me how can I win?
When love dies, the cold nights,
come crashing in,
and old lives are hard to fit in.
