Day 2

Hello and welcome to the second day of your exclusive Lawless Luke debut EP tour.  Today’s song is called ‘While You’re Gone’, and draws a lot of influence from the Delta Blues songs from the early twentieth century.  Towards the end I couldn’t help myself but to add in a couple of ‘Rage Against The Machine’ style riffs, to really take things up a notch, because why not hey!?  Whilst in the studio I also layered in some extra synth parts in the verses, which really make this song sound like it should be part of a soundtrack for an old western movie, YEEEEEHAAAAA.

So consume, consume, consume, and I will be back in touch tomorrow for day 3 of your tour.  It’s going to be sweet!

"They’re playing delta blues, nobody’s gonna lose..."

"While You're Gone"

Written, performed & produced by: Lawless Luke

Here’s a live demo video I did for this song, a couple of years ago. You can really hear how the song developed in the studio! You’ll notice the name changed slightly too!

Lyrics

Chorus

While you’re gone, said I’m gonna sing your song,

While you’re gone, said I’m gonna sing your song.

Verse 1

Going way down low,

Nobody needs to know,

How you make me bleed,

Like a buzzard to the breeze.

Chorus

While you’re gone, said I’m gonna sing your song,

While you’re gone, said I’m gonna sing your song.

Verse 2

Going way down South,

They’re living hand to mouth,

They’re playing delta blues,

Nobody’s gonna lose.

Verse 3

How can they breach you, when your hearts as cold as mine,

Don’t let them touch you, we’ll build castles in the sky,

You’re as cold as ice, broken dreams will never lie,

Kiss like fire babe, one heart true desire.

Outro

Before you let them catch you please, just call on me…

Before you let them catch you please, just call on me…
