about

We are so grateful for the response we are getting for A Girl Named Never. 4 and 5 star ratings and getting compared to some of our favorite artists. Elvis Costello, Beck, Boz Skaggs, R.E.M. Chicago and Blood Sweat & Tears
“What I like most about the music is its sheer unpredictability and amazing amount of originality. Song for song you can never really predict what’s waiting for you around the next corner”

"I can hear many different musical sound scapes from the start you will notice rich musical textures overflowing everywhere, full of passion, variety and strong melodic structure. The songs themselves are addictive"

“A perfect microcosm of the collection of tracks on this album.”

“The band marches to their own drummer, and I feel that Girl Named Never is one of the most unique albums we’ve heard this year."

....Chicago and Blood Sweat & Tears, this is not a 1970s-sounding band. And when they go minimalist, focusing on slow tempos, piano and brass, the band gives a nod to turn-of-the-century, sun splashed boardwalk ragtime swing. And yet, for all of these "vintage" comparisons, We Are the Last Men on Earth does not sound dated. The messages are passionate, honest, and amazingly witty
Each tune for that matter feels like it was written solely for you. It provokes raw emotion and curiosity...

To find nourishment in the creative impulse

Because of you, the listener

Track Name: Skinny Sad Girls
Why do I fall, for skinny sad girls
Even though my daddy sat me down, and told me
Understand your needs, you gotta understand your needs
can we, stick together, now that we’re not lonely
are we, just the best we could get
will there be a moment we both regret

does it feel like
you're wearing someone else’s underwear?
Does it feel like,
your feet are in someone else’s shoes
and they’re still there? Dancing in you shoes and underwear they’re still there,
they don’t care if you slip and fall
they just wanna be there, to see it all, to see you fall
Track Name: Girl Named Never
I'm looking forward to the time when nothing really matters
and no one can make you feel you're all alone
I'm walking backwards into space we all got the right to hate this place
blue skies puppy dogs smiling face all things remind you you're all alone

If you meet a girl named never don't use your real name don't act clever
close your eyes and count to one hundred days you just might meet a girl named always

and you would always know for once in your life something was real
when she spoke you could hear and when she touched you could feel
always I wish you could have been always
Track Name: We Used to Kiss
We used to kiss
So long
Now she only wants me
When I am gone

We both know
We give ourselves away

We both take
And it wil break
Track Name: Pickin' Wheat
Dusk has fallen
My wife is callin’
Nellie's hurt, there's no more work in the fields today
Supper's on, I can smell it a mile away
Gots to find, the hole Nellie caught her hoof on
Fill the hole, take the harness off her back
Gots to walk her to the stable
Wrap up nice her ankle
She gives me a wink and there's sunshine
She gives me a kick, it's raining to my knees
She gives me a wink and there's sunshine
She gives me a kick, my butt’s on the floor

I think tomorrow will be a good day for pickin wheat
Track Name: Catch and Release
Everybody knew but never told me |everyone knew but me
It's O.K. to go to bed hungry |it's O.K. to be real lonely
Here she comes again
Acting like a friend
With a fishing pole
Dangled over my head
And all she’s got is a little shiny gold hook
Where's the bait?

That's all she needs
No little ball of wonder bread, a little ball of cheese
She knows I'm starving
She sees I'm drifting
She's got a supple wrist
Flash that hook and I'll come swimmin'

Thank the lord
She believes
In catch and release
Thank the lord this time I'm born to thin
I got no meat
Throw me back, I'm not good eats

Everybody knew but never told me
Track Name: Trouble
If we're not…
We're thinking about it
And if I'm caught …
doo da lou la do da la lou
Trouble, trouble, trouble, with a capital T
Trouble, trouble, trouble, that's you, that's me
If we're not…
We're thinking about it
And if I'm caught …
doo da lou la do da la lou
You say you could love me
You don't even know me
I only know one thing about you--
I'd have to be the one to get used to
Not being the one in trouble
Trouble, trouble, trouble, with a capital T
Trouble, trouble, trouble, that's you, that's me
If we're not…
We're thinking about it
And if I'm caught …
doo da lou la do da la lou
How could this be possible,
So many girls in the world named trouble?
They seem to all understand our needs
They know we long to be
Always in Trouble
Don't know why it took so long for us to realize
We’re not half as good as those we criticize
Everything we’ve done we’ve done for number one
How could you fall for a man like me?
How could I fall for a girl like you?
Is it ‘cause we are lonely?
Is it ‘cause we're a little bit crazy?
Is it ‘cause we see something no one else can see?
They see us coming, they say “you know, here comes nothing but trouble”
Trouble, trouble, trouble, with a capital T
Trouble, trouble, trouble, that's you, that's me
If we're not…
We're thinking about it
And if I'm caught …
doo da lou la do da la lou
Track Name: Something Anything
There's nothing like that brand new feeling
Falling falling in love
It's morning and we're still waiting
For something; anything
Still waiting for what the tide will bring
Will the tide bring anything
There's nothing like that brand new feeling
Falling falling in love
There's nothing like that just missed you feeling
Will it happen again
Still waiting for what the tide could bring
Will the tide bring anything
It's morning and we're still waiting
For something; anything
There's nothing like that brand new feeling
Falling falling in love
Track Name: Bumble Bee
Won't you be my bumble bee
Won't you be my bumble bee
Won't you be
My bumble bee
I will be your honey
Won't you be
My bumble bee
I will be your honey
Won't you be my bumble bee
Won't you be my bumble bee

Don't take a step without me
Don't make a move that I can't see

Won't you be my bumble bee
Won't you be my bumble bee
Won't you be my bumble bee
I will be your honey
Won't you be
My bumble bee
I will be your honey
Won't you be
My bumble bee
Won't you be
My bumble bee

She knows I'm good I can see it in her
She's knows I would
Feel it in the morning
I can feel it in the morning
Could she fall in love
with an absent minded bubble bee like me?
Could she fall in love
With a clumsy bubble bee like me?
Like me like me like me like me
Do you like me
do you like me
do you like me
do you like me ?
I found someone to me
It makes me feel
Part of the bubble Bee Society
Flying free
With you next to me next to me next to me
I know a place where the daisies
Are as big as the sun
And we can get lazy
And have Bubble Bee fun
Yeah
And Have Bumble Bee fun
Track Name: Silent Screaming
Dear Lords
Do you think I could have just one chord
Dear Lords
Just one chord…
Thank you my Lords
Do you think that I could have
One more chord
Dear Lords
One more chord…
Thank you my Lords
Do you think that I could have
Just one more, do you think…
Thank you, my Lords
Now I can forgive her
Now I can
Forgive her
Not sad anymore
I'm way too poor
Not sad anymore
I'm just too poor

Don't you know
Not to pet the pet alligator?
She bites! she chomps!
I’ve never seen her give up a fight

She's not gonna be the girl that's always happy
It takes to much of her precious energy
She gives nothing for free
Not sad anymore
I'm way too poor
Not sad anymore
I'm just too poor
I’ve been here before
Can't ignore the screaming silence on the floor
Just afford the price of beer 
Far too high when I cry
Not sad anymore
I'm way too poor
Not sad anymore
I'm just too poor
Track Name: Pretty Boy
Don't look at that pretty face,
He's gonna break your heart
Gonna tear you apart
How long till you learn?
Pretty boys can scar, pretty boys can burn

We've all had it pretty bad, from a pretty boy
Who couldn't help but use what he had
We've all had it pretty bad, from a pretty boy
Who couldn't help but use what he had

Don't get fall deep in those trusting eyes
You're bound to see what you want to see
You're bound to compromise
Don't gaze at those pearly whites
They're there to bite, they're there to chew,
some poor girl just like you
Don't kiss, kiss those tender lips
You're bound to fall in love with one single kiss.
Track Name: Devil Inside
The feeling you get when a bad dog don't bite
Is the feeling you get  when the devil holds you 
So tight  so tight so tight so tight

Come with me to the land of make believe
You'll see  I'll be every thing I claim to be
Broken all because my heart was stolen
Now a thief for love  able to feed on my own blood

Devil inside  getting harder to hide
Devil inside I just don't believe in love anymore
I just don't believe  in love anymore

Anyone left to talk to?  anyone I can tell the nasty things I do?
Oh no not you the last one left I can talk to 
What will I do  soon my oldest friend will be brand new

Devil inside  getting harder to hide
Devil inside I just don't believe in us anymore
I just don't believe  in us anymore
 
The feeling you get when a bad dog don't bite
Is the feeling you get  when I hold you 
So tight  so tight so tight so tight
