about

TALKING WAVES Cork, Ireland

Joey Weidner (guitars) and Jonathon ‘JR’ Russell (vocals) are TALKING WAVES. They got together with producer/multi- instrumentalist Wayne P. Sheehy in their native West Cork early in 2017 and put together a tight rhythm section to work with. They then spent over a year patiently carving their debut album 'Americano Blues’ out of the wild Atlantic landscape that surrounded them. ... more

Track Name: LONELY
LONELY
J Weidner

The night turns into day
And I’m running out of things to say
Been a long time in the cellar Beneath the garden in my head
Became the king of tiny spaces
But I never threw the key away
And I’m tired of all these faces
Promising a better day

I’ll smoke a cigarette, or reach for the cellphone
It’s all a sickness, you can
Never get a moment alone
Sometimes it feels like we’re just
Fish in a fishbowl
I’m fed up with this world

I’m lonely, unholy, and I’m not the only one
It’s been a while since I felt the light
Of the sun shining on my back
Oh I’m lonely, won’t you come hold me cuz I,
Just need a little love
Make me feel like someone you know

The night turns into day,
And I’m running out of things to say
Comin’ up from the cellar
But I can’t get outta my head
I am the king of tiny spaces,
But I never threw the key away
Live a long time in my kingdom
Looking for a better way

I’m lonely, unholy, and I know I’m not the only one
It’s been a while since I felt the light
Of the sun shining on my back
Oh I’m lonely, won’t you come hold me
Cuz I, Just need a little love
Make me feel like someone you really know
Track Name: HELP ME
HELP ME
J Russell

As Black as the sun, as bright as the night
I see the world, under a strange new light
My world’s upside down, can’t figure out this town
Feel so alone, you were here I could have sworn

Backwards is forwards
Deepest blacks are blue
Everything I know, becoming untrue

How did I get here?
Tap my heels and I’m not home
So afraid, all alone

Help Me

All I have here is time, moving so slow
All I want is home, trapped forever more
My mind plays it’s tricks, trying to tell me I’m sick
But this is me now, gotta figure it out

Backwards is forwards
Deepest blacks are blue
Everything I know, becoming untrue

How did I get here?
Tap my heels and I’m not home
So afraid, all alone

Help Me
Help Me
Track Name: HOLD ON
HOLD ON
J Weidner

Welcome to my rock
It’s getting pretty bad here
There’s a winter wind blowing down
Birds of feather flock away from each other
When the orange sun comes crumbling down
We hang our heads on the weight of the world
That’s in our pockets
Tie my hands til they’re blue
We hold the prayers of the faithful everlasting
But that just won’t fly anymore

We need to figure it out, oh ooh It’s all gone wrong
Nothing lasts forever
Soon it’ll be Goodbye My Rock
Nothing lasts forever
I think you better hold on

Welcome to my rock
It’s a place where, nothing is sacred anymore
We get along with technicolour government
They keep us down on the killing floor
And I had such a shitty day
But I don’t care, I don’t care
I just wanna sit and stare looking at the blank space
Cooking up some other bad news for me
Just another fake news story

He has this and she has that,
I want more so give them less
I don’t wanna cause no stress, It’s just the way it is, the way it is
Give me this and give me that,
I saw it on the internet
I don’t wanna cause no stress, It’s just the way it is

But we can change the world
Make a better day, feels like we’ve gone astray
So Goodbye My Rock
Nothing lasts forever
I think you better hold on
Track Name: DON'T WANNA DO THIS ANYMORE
DON’T WANNA DO THIS ANYMORE
J Weidner

You might be right
I might be wrong
And you can keep on singing but
I heard that song
Need to find a tune that’ll knock me to the floor

I don’t wanna do this anymore
I don’t wanna do this anymore

Got your hooks in me
And it hurt
I’m trying the big time chorus but that,
That don’t work

Build a bridge across it
Listen to it roar

I don’t wanna do this anymore
I don’t wanna do this anymore

Need a sad refrain
Need a killer line
I need a minor chord
Get me everytime
We should fade it out now
Stop keeping score

I don’t wanna do this anymore
I don’t wanna do this anymore
I don’t wanna do this anymore
I don’t wanna do this anymore
Track Name: BETTER MAN
BETTER MAN
J Weidner

Look at us now
Living hand to mouth
Feeding the city,
But the city isn’t feeding us
I’ve figured it out
Seen the blankness on the faces in the crowds
And they can never get enough blood

And I’ll try to find the letters
To make up words,
That can paint a clearer picture
Oh won’t you help me to try and understand
Because I wanna be, I got to be
A better man

RIFF

There’s ups and there’s downs
But you always keep me anchored to the ground
No stormy weather could change the way
I feel around you, and I just can’t seem
To shake these lonesome blues

Oh you can never have enough love
I’ll try to find the letters
To make up words,
That can paint a clearer picture
Won’t you help me to try and understand
Because I wanna be, I got to be
A better man

RIFF

We’ll figure it out
The cards are on the table
and I’m hoping,
Hoping that we’ll make it out alive
But you make me a better man
You make me a better man
Track Name: GOOD TIMES
GOOD TIMES
J Weidner

Well I been
Talkin about the future
Running through the darkest days
Terrible nature and deeper philosophy Is wrapping me up in a haze

Oh I want good times, all the time
Good times, all the time
Oh I want good times, all the time
Good times, all the time

Wo o ow it’s like a river boat
Wo o ow like a riverboat made outta lead (I need to jump ship)
Why in the world would you ever
Put one foot in this shit

Pack it all up in a suitcase
And leave it out in the rain
I got a one way ticket to north of nowhere
And I won’t be coming back again
I’m doin alright, alri i ight

Oh I want good times, all the time
Good times, all the time
You got me feeling alright, alri i ight
Oh I want good times,
All the time I want good times, all the time
Why in the world would you ever
Wanna change a good damn thing?

Well I been talkin about the business
Of leaving it all behind
I got a one way ticket to get on outta here
And I’m sure you’ll be fine
Girl I want good times, all the time
Good times, all the time
You got me feeling alright
All Ri i ight
And so on and so forth...
