about

Paul Liddell Sunderland, UK

Paul's modern take on the 'one man band' using live loops, guitar percussion, harmonies and effects has seen him support artists such as Turin Brakes, Jon Gomm and Billy Bragg. A diverse and challenging writer with a unique voice, his live performances range from whispering intensity to a white knuckle, edge of your seat, ear splittingly glorious racket. ... more

Track Name: Ghost Car (The Caffeine Kicks)
Ghost Car (The Caffeine Kicks)

I drive a ghost car
I drive through the night
I drive a ghost car
I drive it through the cold wind and rain
Always alone, as the night as long
I drive for home, keeping on
I drive for home

I drive a ghost car
I drive through the night
I drive a ghost car
And no-one else can drive my car
Not like me, not like this
‘cos they don’t miss, what I miss
I drive for this kiss

So I while away the hours trying to make it stick
I try to stay awake ‘til the caffeine kicks
I try to stay awake ‘til the caffeine kicks

I stop at a ghost town
There’s no-one around
I stop at a ghost town
Where everyone is fast asleep
Shadows populate the street
The traffic lights flash red to green
Repeat, repeat, but no-one sees

So I while away the hours trying to make it stick
I try to stay awake ‘til the caffeine kicks
I try to stay awake ‘til the caffeine kicks

I drive a ghost car
I drive through the night
A ghost car
Always trying to get back home
The road is long, I cannot get gone
White lines blur to one, until I see the sun
White lines blur to one, until I see the sun. Hey!

So I while away the hours trying to make it stick
I try to stay awake ‘til the caffeine kicks
I try to stay awake ‘til the caffeine kicks
‘til the caffeine kicks, ‘til the caffeine kicks. Hey!
Track Name: Dialling Tone
I walked away from all I know
My battery's dead, I'm miles from home
And in 15 minutes I have to call you to say hello
Or the paranoia will come to eat me

And it seems the phone line is a lifeline
An invisible connection to a world I understand
'cos late last night I said I love you
And now it's hard to tell the difference between my heartbeats and the dialling tone

I'm caving in. I'm all alone
I need to find a telephone
To call my Mother and ask her if I'm doing alright
Or the brown eyed monster just keeps on coming

And it seems the phone line is a lifeline
An invisible connection to a world I understand
'cos late last night I said I love you
And now it's hard to tell the difference between my the dialling tone

I don't know how it got like this, but I cannot desist
I cannot let up, grow up, wake up.

And it seems the phone line is a lifeline
An invisible connection to a world I understand
'cos late last night I said I love you
And now it's hard to tell the difference between my heartbeats and the dialling tone

The telephone
Track Name: Trouble In Hell
TROUBLE IN HELL

Your tracks will come back and lead you through the winter alone
And flat on my back I’ll meet you on our island of stone
What’s on your mind friend? Can I help you take off your shoes?
Got some time on your hands, but you didn’t come and help me. Blow up and bruise.
There is trouble in hell

Now your arms are so thin I thought of branches brittle and prone
So I followed you in and I wasted by the minute
I couldn’t find your sin. I only found my limit.
There is trouble in hell

Now everybody’s shrinking to their core, or so I’ve been told
‘cos I listen to the whispers, and they said to let you go
And help myself float
There is trouble in hell
Track Name: Boots
BOOTS

We fell behind. Our luck was much too bleak
I was much too kind and you were weak
No hanging your hear or turning away
I do not want to take this day by day

So pick up the pieces take what you need then do what you need to do
You’re not over the hill, the time that you kill won’t help you blow up and bruise

With your boots laced up your tiny feet will walk all over me
I don’t expect too much, I don’t wanna find you hanging from a tree
With your boots laced up, your tiny feet will walk all over me

You made mistakes, over and over and over again
It isn’t an issue of making amends. I think it has come to the time for revenge

You’re losing the plot, forgot what you’ve got and all that you have to lose
You’re not over the hill the time that you kill won’t help you blow up and bruise

With your boots laced up your tiny feet will walk all over me
I don’t expect too much, I don’t wanna find you hanging from a tree
With your boots laced up, your tiny feet will walk all over me
Track Name: Monsoon Rain
MONSOON RAIN

Do you ever think about getting off the conveyor belt of how life’s meant to be?
I will not choose, just refuse, I will not take this path in front of me

So lead a tidy life and let yourself fade
With an smile on your face while you’re getting paid
And you feel the world will never be the same
Tears roaring through you like a monsoon rain

No more crying, unhappy feelings, what you believe in is so deceiving
It’s not a question of finding meaning
Life is the answer. Love is the reason

Do you ever think to yourself in a moment of clarity ‘this isn’t the way that my life’s meant to be’?
You try to avoid the pursuit of some dude in a suit who will try to dilute you and make you a machine

The party line is malign lies, repeat to fade
Take a vow in front of god just to change your name
Then slave in a trade ‘til the flat screen’s paid
Tears roaring through you like a monsoon rain

No more crying, unhappy feelings, what you believe in is so deceiving
It’s not a question of finding meaning
Life is the answer. Love is the reason
