about

You never get a second chance to make a first impression, but Oakland, California's Long Knives don't need it- they nailed it the first time. Their debut EP "This is Your Life" showcase the band's strengths: upbeat, catchy indie/punk with strong female/male call and answer vocals that will keep you coming back again and again. The start of something big.

Track Name: Bones
I'm here
Having the worst year
I wasn't trying to compare
When I know it isn't fair

I don't want to go
When home doesn't feel like home

And I should know
After all the highs and lows I managed to let go
But i've outgrown
I am lost and out of control
And I should know
After all the highs and lows I managed to let go
I am alone
Will you mend my bones?

I close my eyes
It's all the same
If I see no light, no escape
How will I find my place?

I don't know what to do
I can't turn to you then who?

And I should know
After all the highs and lows I managed to let go
But i've outgrown
I am lost and out of control
And I should know
After all the highs and lows I managed to let go
I am alone
Will you mend my bones?
Track Name: Unwelcome Guest
I have come here to rest
But when I awake I'll look for an exit
I remember this feeling
And it fucking haunts me
It won't be easy to digest
Because I know what will happen next

But I'm stuck with no luck
I am stuck and with no luck

I am a unwelcome guest
It is written across my chest

Years of longing for acceptance
And now I'm back at where I started
If I had it all, I would've parted
But the past month has left me empty hearted

I'm stuck
I am stuck and with no luck

I am a unwelcome guest
It is written across my chest
Track Name: Home
The wind blows, but doesn't hit us all the same
Don't you ever worry
Because we're held by a chain
Just you and me

If the rain falls down on you like a storm
I'll keep you warm
I'll shelter you
There's nothing I wouldn't do

For you

Never feel alone
This is home
Track Name: Bastante
've watched you suffer
Never knowing when you'd recover
I bit my tongue
I was young
I know I can't find another
You are, you are my mother

When I spoke up, I know it must've stung
I apologize for my poor judgment
I hold no, I hold no resentment

Because I, I needed you more, more than I ever did

Breathe in the calm air
And with time, you were there
This is your life
You know I will always be there

Because you, you needed me more, more than you ever did

I'll never forget when you existed, but didn't live

You opened your eyes and watched the world spark as it did
