about

When Andrew White came to live in Nova Scotia for a short time, he teemed up with Remedy's Steve Harley and James Bond and resulting collaboration of the indie-funk-rock roots of Remedy with the singer-songwriter virtuso style of White's fingerstyle acoustic writing, merged together to create an album divergent from either co-founders solo efforts. This 11-track full length album of the recording project we called "The Rain", and the album "Out of the Emptiness", was never officially released, as White kept travelling to support his solo career and Harley/Bond continued on with Remedy. This album is now available for the first time digitally anywhere here on bandcamp....this June 2015. We hope you love these songs as much as we loved writing/recording/producing them!

Track Name: Superhero
When the rain come down
on Sockie Hall street
on a James Dean day
Pale, incomplete
When life's demanding
just lose control
be the Superhero, baby
let's rock and roll!

Ch:
Superhero, I've come to save your town
Superhero, I won't let you down
Superhero, I need to feel your human touch
'cause we can only take so much....

And the music plays in St. George's square
secretly stealing the time and your unaware
You were in disguise but you can't fool me
I got X-ray eyes. I see all there is to see.
And I see you.

Ch
Track Name: Downtown
Shadows fall and I'm aware
I need to be somewhere
Think I'm heading downtown

Misty halls and cobble streets
I heard you call, I need a fix on you,
Downtown

ooooooh, but I can't wait
the time keeps getting later and later
when all the lights go out
when all the lights go out, downtown

Upon the verge of off-the-brink
No logic or rhymes to think when I see you downtown

Sudden dreams and I'm awake
your voice makes me tremble, shake
“no point in leaving here now”

ooooooh, but I can't wait
the time keeps getting later and later when all the lights go out
when all the lights go out
when all the lights go out

I remember the words you used to say to me
and the silence following the echoes of whispers

When all the lights go out
When all the lights go out
When all the lights go out
When all the lights go out
Downtown

Think I'm heading downtown
I'll see you downtown
Downtown.....
Track Name: World Falls Down
Pieces of time cutting through chapters of waking life
Feeling weighed down and losing control
I have you cradled in my pocket
Nothing will keep me from keeping you safe

Ch
When your world falls down
When your world falls down
When your world falls down
Just let go....

Uninterupted secret lonliness
with clamoring voices polluting the day
your gravity pulled me out of emptiness
I'm streaming toward you and nothing can get in my way

Ch

Barreling down no thoughts in your mind
Leaping skyward,
All logic erased,
When your world.....
Track Name: Don't let me down
I couldn't trace your picture in the light of day
It's better when I close my eyes
Crawling through the corridors of memories erased
Falling through a plate of melting ice.

Ch:
When I want to I see you
When I come to, don't let me down
I have to remember you,
Don't let me down this way

Waiting for the dusty skies to drift away
Making more mistakes with less regret
Colorful illusion that all fades to grey
'cause I can't make out all the patterns yet

Ch
Don't let me down,
don't turn around
'cause I can't watch you disappear
It's only now I know somehow
you won't let me wake up alone

Wandering and lost for any words to say
Tearing down those instigation lies
It's easier forgetting how I got this way
It's better if I don't sympathize

Ch
Track Name: Just what it is
I'm a hurricane blowing through your town
drowning everything out to open sea
I'm a river rage and torrential falls
I'm wading through it all
to get somewhere
Uncertainty, it coats your skin
so paper thin and yet so clear
This tidal wave collapsed it seems
and soaked our dreams
but do we care?

Looking at you, looking at me
Trying to picture just what it is
looking through you, looking through me

So much to say, in such futile ways
and if we could wo would care?
Could this have changed?
Could history and hearts reset again?

Looking at you, looking at me
Trying to picture just what it is
looking through you, looking through me
Where does it go? What do you see?
Trying to fashion a reason for laughing
Looking through you, looking through me

Looking through you, looking through me
trying to picture just what it is
Looking through you, looking through me
where does it go? What do you see?
Trying to fashion a reason for laughing
looking through you, looking through me
Track Name: Summer's Day
On a summer's, underneath these olive trees
I'm sitting hand in hand, my old friend Socrates
and your skies, crystal blue like your timid smile
and all these precious moments I'll spend with you
only for awhile....

On a summer's day x4

Mountain pass, grassy valleys and a stony beach
a million miles I travelled
So out of touch and so out of reach
Realizations and whisperings of longer days
A paradise ahead is molting out of a morning haze

Pull me from under into your mind
These vacant emotions, I'll leave 'em all behind,
leave 'em all behind on a summer's day.....

On a summer's day.
On a summer's day x2

All around temptation lies and beckons you with haste
Just be strong, look in these eyes
walk through the sacred gate on a summer's day
On a summer's day.
On a summer's day x2

On a summer's day x4
Track Name: Where did you go?
You better get out of the way
You'd better run, run 'cause here I come,
I'm flying down your street
and I'm a heat-seaking ride
you better make some plans
for tortuous insanity
I'm crashing through your safe and comfortable life
A furnace of excitement is ripping down your lane
and a frieght train is coming to steal you away
I'm gonna bleach your reality with unabating exctasy
and that's what makes it alright

Ch
Now Where did you go?
Where did you disappear and how did you escape my wandering eye?
Where did you fly?
It's only a matter of time before I find you!
You got no place left to hide!

Well back-up from the window
Lock your doors and lie in wait
these days of bored amusement
are all but a memory
I'm a ticking clock and a wind that wont stop
I'm a breaching high tide
That floods all your fantasy
and so immediately

And Where did you go?
Where did you disappear and how did you escape my wandering eye?
Where did you fly?
It's only a matter of time before I find you
You got no place left

No place left to hide ...(repeating in background, with foreground spoken word:
“roll-up, roll-up. Lubley Jubley. There you go then! Everone's a winner! I said everyone's a winner!”

ba-bah-baa-b-ba-bahh
Now where did you go?
Where did you disappear and how did you escape my wandering eye?
Where did you fly?
It's only a matter of time before I find you
You got no place left
no place left to hide
Track Name: Tease Me
You can draw me the way that you want to
You can color the mood of the sky
Choose the softness and shape of the ground
and it's all the same to me

Trace the paths of directionless wandering
Pull the moonlight in with your tide
You can take me where I've never been to and
Spin me 'round in your satellite

Tease me, over and over
Please me, just for awhile
I'll be waiting to see you again
When I close my eyes

Solve the constant perennial mysteries
Find the fortunes of wasted time
Scent the air with the blush of your cheeks
and it's all the same to me

Ch

I'm slightly awake, at least for now
And even in slumber you find me somehow
It's over my head and I don't even try
To hold onto reason when you tease me.......

Ch
Track Name: Are you there?
Feel the beat that's gonna take you home
Feel the beat that's gonna take you home
Feel the beat that's gonna take you home
Feel the beat that's gonna take you home

Are you temporarily incoruptable?
Is there nothing left susceptible?
Are you essentially unconnectable?
Are you there?

Feel the beat that's gonna take you home
Feel the beat that's gonna take you home
It's intellectually inacceptable
uncatagorically unmathimatical
left your heart de-code the irrational
Are you there?
Feel the sting ripple through the air

Well it's only just a stone's throw away
You were just a heartbeat away
Crumpling-up directions from ahead and behind
'cause there's no more (no more), no more need for them......

ooooohhhh, hooooh, hooooh

Feel the beat that's gonna take you home
Feel the beat that's gonna take you home
Feel the beat that's gonna take you home
Feel the beat that's gonna take you home
Don't be emotionally de-radical'd
or de-tastefully unfanatical
(don't) let your angst die in the practical
fly ahead fly ahead, well you're never ahead
It's intellectually inacceptable
Is there nothing left susceptible
Are you essentially unconnectable
Let your heart decode the irrational

And it's only just a stone's throw away
You were just a heartbeat away
Crumpling-up directions from ahead and behind
'cause there's no more (no more), no more need for them...
Track Name: I will come to you
I tread a thin line
I walk a jagged edge
I wear no life-line as I stumble on this ledge to you
What more can I do
I will come to you.

I chart a strange tack
sailin' on the tide
The wind lies at my back
As I'm sailin' eyes full wide, full view
What more can I do
I will come to you

I will, yes I will, surely come to you
I will, yes I will, I will surely come to you

Hey look at my face
Do you know why I smile?
There's nothin' you can replace
It's only been here for a while, for now
Well don't ask me how
I will come to you.

I will, yes I will, surely come to you
I will, yes I will, I will surely come...

Oh, I feel it so strong now
Oh, you know it won't be long now
Before we find our way
But for now we're lost with no words to say...

I will, yes I will, I will surely come to you
Track Name: Walk in Light
I've got to take some time
look inside myself
living like a fool
living like a clown
letting myself and everybody down
how long could I live this way?
How strange these games I play.
Something gotta move. Something gotta sway.

Ch.
When I walk with you, I walk in light
When I talk to you the world becomes so much brighter than before

I've got to take some time
let the wild winds blow
swimming up stream
I've been living in a dream.
I had to let it go. I had to let it go.
How long could I act this way.
How strange them things I say
something got to move, something got to sway

When I walk with you, I walk in light
When I talk to you the world becomes so bright
When I talk to you, I walk in light, I.....

Thunderclouds may roll
Mountains may crumble
But you and I
You and I
We are 2 rivers......
Walk in light......

Walk in light
Walk in light
Walk in light...
