lyrics

I see her every morning on my street
I wonder where she goes and who she meets
In my dreams I see
She’s walking out with me
But something tells me that will never be

Sometimes, I don’t know why I even try
So shy, I don’t know why I even try

I know I’m just an ordinary guy
But if I had a minute of her time
She would know I’m real
And how I really feel
But if she turned around I think I’d die

Sometimes, I don’t know why I even try
So shy, I don’t know why I even try

Guess, I’ll have to face reality
I can’t give her anything
Except my soul and that’s for free

But sometimes, I don’t know why I even try
So shy, I don’t know why I even try

The Bad Loser’s formed in 2004 due to a shared love of 60s Garage and Freakbeat.

Their recordings are made in a garden shed which resembles a small Working Men’s Club with carousal competing equally with musical creation.

In the comfort of this environment, the band have settled down to a long period of home recording in search of capturing an appropriate lo-fi sound.
