I remember when we were young, we used to chase the sun It never set on us We're no longer 17 and while our bodies sleep We still dream One generation, locked inside Breaking free, we sing WE ARE THE ONES STILL BURNING BRIGHT WE ARE THE ONES UP EVERY NIGHT WE ARE THE ONES, WE ARE THE ONES I remember summer songs, we still sing along They still turn us on And whilst time may have gone, we're not lost We keep burning on and on and on and on... One generation, locked inside Breaking free, we sing WE ARE THE ONES STILL BURNING BRIGHT WE ARE THE ONES UP EVERY NIGHT WE ARE THE ONES, WE ARE THE ONES WE ARE THE ONES STILL FIGHTING ON WE ARE THE ONES EVER STRONG WE ARE THE ONES, WE ARE THE ONES AND WE WILL SING OUR SONG WE WILL SING OUR SONG WE WILL SING... WE ARE THE ONES STILL BURNING BRIGHT WE ARE THE ONES UP EVERY NIGHT WE ARE THE ONES, WE ARE THE ONES WE ARE THE ONES STILL BURNING BRIGHT WE ARE THE ONES UP EVERY NIGHT WE ARE THE ONES, WE ARE THE ONES WE ARE THE ONES STILL ALIGHT WE ARE THE ONES TO MAKE THINGS RIGHT WE ARE THE ONES, WE ARE THE ONES WE ARE THE ONES WE ARE THE ONES WE ARE THE ONES

Do you remember the first time when years ago in 95 Those summer days were alright? Me, Glen, Bobby and Steve setting fires, running free When I look back in anger it’s what I see Escaping into the night, first taste of sex and love bites That was our design for life And even when we cut our arms for those girls who came from Mars Anyone can play guitar I WANNA BE BACK IN 95 (WANNA BE BACK IN 95) I WANNA BE BACK IN 95 I WANNA BE BACK IN 95 WITH YOU….FOREVER YOU When I remember St. Ives sun I’m still Thom Yorke and James Bond We write our own words to those songs And the poster we all signed says ‘live forever’ not goodbye We will always be… I WANNA BE BACK IN 95 (WANNA BE BACK IN 95) I WANNA BE BACK IN 95 I WANNA BE BACK IN 95 WITH YOU….FOREVER YOU….FOREVER YOU I WANNA BE BACK IN 95 I WANNA BE BACK IN 95 I WANNA BE BACK IN 95 WITH YOU….FOREVER… YOU….FOREVER… YOU….FOREVER… YOU…. I WANNA BE BACK IN 95 (WANNA BE BACK IN 95) I WANNA BE BACK IN 95 I WANNA BE BACK IN 95 WITH YOU….FOREVER… YOU….FOREVER… YOU….FOREVER… YOU….FOREVER YOU

I sit here alone, no friends to call my own Just me and my guitar, nothing else but the posters on the walls My only love has gone until I find another one Something precious to obsess and consume the emptiness So I will sing this song For you, for me, for anyone An anthem for the unloved Some sound to fill our silence... LONELINESS LONELINESS LONELINESS A SONG FOR YOU AND ME I sit lie here alone, nothing to call my own My public face has died whilst I crawl deeper inside I'm growing into this skin and no-one will notice me Hiding in my own world, nothing can touch me And I will sing this song For you, for me, for anyone An anthem for the unloved Some sound to fill our silence... LONELINESS LONELINESS LONELINESS A SONG FOR YOU AND ME LONELINESS LONELINESS LONELINESS LONELINESS A SONG FOR YOU AND ME A SONG FOR YOU AND ME A SONG FOR YOU AND ME A SONG FOR YOU AND ME

about

'We Are The Ones' is the third release from my forthcoming debut solo album, which will be released early 2016.

‘We Are The Ones’ captures the same nostalgic and anthemic qualities of previous single ‘95’ but ultimately looks forward to the future rather than into the past. With its rousing chorus - “We are the ones still burning bright” - this is a ‘call to arms’ to my generation.

Having overcome depression and anxiety, and growing more confident with age, I wanted to share the positivity I feel from a more mature and settled outlook. ‘We Are The Ones’ emphasises that fact, advising listeners that they still have the time and the power to “make things right”.

The 3 bonus tracks are only available via Bandcamp or by picking up a limited edition CD on the 'We Are The Ones' tour.

Additional tracks include previous single ‘95’, the haunting adolescent ballad ‘Loneliness (A Song For You and Me)’ and an acoustic version of ‘We Are The Ones.’ The two latter tracks were both recorded specifically for this release.

My second single ‘95’ was aired on BBC 6 Music by Tom Robinson and received rave reviews, including this one from R*E*P*E*A*T:

“…when the air-punching chorus kicks in with ‘I wanna be back in 95′, it’s hard not to be carried along on the good vibes.”
