about

The debut EP from abe&tell.

Written in Hamburg, recorded in Sydney.

An album about the brighter side of breakups, being your own worst enemy, skipping across the globe and forgetting your mum's birthday. To be enjoyed with a beer and a brandy.

Coming soon: the abe&tell EP retold through interpretative dance.

Track Name: This Man's Brighter Days
I guess you thought you could bring me under
I guess you thought you could pull me down
You didn't know I could live on over
Life kicks on, without you

Your little streak to try and bring me down
All the times you're turning push me around
I'm not the boy you thought would turn and crawl away
The sun is shining down on this man's brighter days

So this coops flew I'm gunna start a new
Yeah ciao to you and here's just what I'll do
I'm not the kind to stay as you're pushing me away
The sun is shining down on this man's brighter days

It's not so bad to be where I am today
The world belongs to me, the free man all the way
The pain it fades as time clears the haze
The sun is shining down on this man's brighter days
Track Name: Days are Fighting
I've done my time, I've paid my dues
I've done my time, I've paid my dues
I've done all I can to repay my sins
I'm not gunna get back on that horse again.

I've done my time, I've paid my dues
For what it's worth, it was never you
I've done all I can to repay my sins
Sold my fate to watch the end begin

The days are fighting,
Timeless dripping down.
Ends are winding...
And I dont know what I'm doing all the time

What I do today will set me apart
Yesterday is but a blink in the past
What I do today will be my new start
Another chance to take and turn from the dark

The days are fighting,
Timeless dripping down.
Ends are winding...
And I dont know what I'm doing all the time

On the day I find my sins have come again
I promised to me I won't fall for them again
The dirty habits come and kick me to the floor
Long gone the days when I dreamed of something more
Track Name: At Night...
take your time to say your silence.
take your time to build your hill
take your time to say you're righteous
You know, you need your fill

You're damaged goods, you're far from honest
Your personal, projected hell
You're bearing down a weight on others.
Your painful, unending dwell.

Nothing works, you fucked it up again
All you touch just turns to shit.
Awake at night you're wrecked and nervous
Alone inside and sick of it

At night...

Understand it's not you breathing
Understand it's not your fault
You're not perfect, I'm not either.
The darkest blows in life's assault

At night...

Rest your head upon my shoulder
Take your time to see things through
Just a step, just one step further
We're all here, supporting you.

Don't take it out on those around you
Driving those who care away.
You're not perfect, They're not either.
Find our place in this old game.


Awake at night I'm wrecked and nervous
Stuck inside and sick of it
The undefined is burning me up.
Not alone but I feel it.
Track Name: Leaves
The way the leave fall through the trees
The way the light shines down on me
The way the flowers on the plants
Bloom in spring across the land

The gravel trampled underfoot
On an inner city roof
The waking streams of broken dreams
Dreams of effervescent streams

I see life go on without me
My problems come and consume me
I see life go on without me
My dreams turn and pursue me
