about

Eddie Japan Boston

".. a contagious attitude of doing it up, and doing it up right that you can hear in the carnival swirls of ultra-melodic pop, latin-flavored bravado and cinematic ‘70s UK rock."

Track Name: Edward Descending
Eddie, you’re falling
you’re really falling, babe
I don’t know who you are
Eddie, you’re slipping
you’re double dipping, babe
with those fancy clothes
and that pink guitar

It aint as bad as it seems
it only hurts when I dream

Hey, Eddie
should I leave on the light?
You’re keeping me up all night
“I’m not coming home!”

Eddie, you’re breaking
my heart you’re breaking, babe
you’re taking this too far - like some
small town big shot
in a strip mall Camelot
Who do you think you are?

I’ve been going out of my mind
and you wouldn’t believe what I'm finding!

Hey, Eddie
should I leave on the light?
You’re keeping me up all night
“I’m not coming home!”
Hey, Eddie
should I leave on the light?
You’re keeping me up all night
“I’m not coming home!”

It aint as bad as it seems
it only hurts when I dream

Hey, Eddie
should I leave on the light?
You’re keeping me up all night
“I’m not coming home!”
Hey, Eddie
should I leave on the light?
You’re keeping me up all night
“I’m not coming home!”

Eddie, you rebel
you think you’re so special
you howl at the moon
you score at the bar
but your heart will break
as you take off her bra
you’re so far from home
but I know who you are!
Track Name: Summer Hair
Now
I take you down beneath the burning haze
You’re all I crave and
every time I see your face I fall
So breathe your life back into me, oh hey
I know you spend your time with him but wait
maybe we can make it last just a little bit longer

Here we are
two of a kind
torn apart
by a bitter world outside
Take my hand
the summer’s almost gone
I’d rather fall with you
than stand on my own

Now
all my fears come crashing like the waves
but when I run my hands through your summer hair
I’m saved and all at once
I remember everything the way
your damp skin felt beneath your clothes
the salt and sea upon your lips, oh baby don’t you go

Here we are
two of a kind
Torn apart
by a bitter world outside
Take my hand
the summer’s almost gone
I’d rather fall with you
than stand on my own

And we fall like the summer...

Take my hand
the summer’s almost gone
I’d rather fall with you
than stand on my own
Track Name: If I Should Fall
Strange fascination
the sweetest temptation
I’m falling I’m falling for you
Your gaze cuts right through me
It saws me in two me's
I’m falling apart over you

And if I
if I
if I
if I
should fall

Walking a tightrope
with no net it’s no joke
the crowd gasps as I trip and sway
I’m drunk and I’m dizzy
I’m flying I’m crazy
obsessing all my days away

And if I
if I
if I
if I
should fall

And if I
if I
if I
if I
should fall

The sweet pain of missing you
the mad thrill of kissing you
I’m falling
The sweet pain of missing you
the mad thrill of kissing you
I’m falling

Strange fascination
the sweetest temptation
I’m falling I’m falling for you
Your gaze cuts right through me
It saws me in two me's
I’m falling apart over you
Track Name: The Dandy of Suburbia
I do my best work in the aisles
of the local Home Depot
I came in here looking for something
but I ended up leaving with someone new
In the middle of the afternoon
All over town
You know they come around, they come
they really like my style

I wear the clothes of a man
at least ten years younger
I’m coming off like some phony
dandy of suburbia
in the middle of the afternoon
Bed Bath and Beyond
Married, single or divorced
they really like my style

Oooh, let the tears flow
Oooh, let the tears flow

I’m not really sure
when they started calling me Eddie
I was just a regular man
now I’m escorting women
In the middle of the afternoon
Red Roof Motel
Now I’m in demand
ever since she threw me out

Oooh, let the tears flow
Oooh, let the tears flow

Help me, cause I’m falling
falling in love or falling apart
I don’t know
Tell me, ‘cause I hear you
is this more than an afternoon score
I gotta know

At night they go home
and curl up with their husbands
And I go back to the empty
of my one-room apartment
Maybe she thinks of me
or maybe she stinks of me…

Maybe some day they’ll find me
ejected from the vehicle
or maybe I’ll rise up
with the fangs of a viper
it’s all or nothing for me
there’s never any in between
Singing do you want me
do you want me do you want me now

Oooh, just let the tears flow
Oooh. just let the tears flow…
Track Name: Undertow
Do you want
Do you want
Do you want
Do you want me now
Do you want
Do you want
Do you want
Do you want me now…

I'm screwing through
a second adolescence
Before the tide rolls in
and the sky turns gray
What should I do
surrender to the deadly
undertow
of this awful age?

Am I a man?
Show me and tell me
Am I alive?
I cannot say
Give me a chance
this suburban dandy
Out on the town
filled with well-dressed rage

I feel so good
but the end is coming
like a fashion model
with a fatal disease
If you were me
would you go out in style
If you were me
would you let it play

I was doing OK
but then something kind of hit me
a strange kind of sadness
just pulled me away
I get so happy
when I'm down in her meadow
I get so sad
when the light starts to change

I was born
on a Saturday evening
I was born
with a fever in me
Is this a breakdown
Or it might be a breakthrough!
Is this the end
that remains to be seen

She tried to love me
but I wouldn't let her
My mind started to wander
and my body gave chase
She was choking
on my second-hand depression
but she wasn't joking
when the locks were changed

Do you want
Do you want
Do you want
Do you want me now
Do you want
Do you want
Do you want
Do you want me now…
