I've always been a dreamer Intrigued by what's to come Living life feeling that I could have Anything under the sun So I set off drifting Couldn't seem to settle down Rather walk away than have to face The refuge that I'd found But you could always see into my every mood So tell me, baby, what am I to do? I've walked a thousand miles There's no place can rival your smile Knocked on a dozen doors But I turned away cuz they were not yours Wandering a nowhere town Didn't know what else to do Cuz it all comes back to All comes back to you The freedom I desired I fought to manifest In a world that told me I could want What was handed me at best So I pushed back on all the stories That I thought would fence me in I pushed you by the wayside When I should have let you in But you could always see into my every hue So tell me, baby, what am I to do? I've walked a thousand miles There's no place can rival your smile Knocked on a dozen doors But I turned away cuz they were not yours Wandering a nowhere town Didn't know what else to do Cuz it all comes back to All comes back to you [Instrumental solo] But you could always see into my every wound So tell me, baby, what am I to do? I've walked a thousand miles There's no place can rival your smile Knocked on a dozen doors But I turned away cuz they were not yours Wandering a nowhere town Didn't know what else to do Cuz it all comes back to All comes back to you [Repeat chorus]

Stay 06:19
All along it was a fever A cold sweat, hot headed believer I threw my hands in the air I said show me something He said, "If you dare, come a little closer" Round and around and around and around We go Oh now, tell me now, tell me now, tell me now You know Not really sure how to feel about it Something in the way you move Makes me feel like I can't live without you It takes me all the way I want you to stay It's not much of a life you're living It's not just something you take, it's given Round and around and around and around We go Oh now, tell me now, tell me now, tell me now You know Not really sure how to feel about it Something in the way you move Makes me feel like I can't live without you It takes me all the way I want you to stay Oh, the reason I hold on Oh, 'cause I need this hole gone Funny you're the broken one But I'm the only one who needed saving 'Cause when you never see the light It's hard to know which one of us is caving Not really sure how to feel about it Something in the way you move Makes me feel like I can't live without you It takes me all the way I want you to stay

Every Day 03:31
Every day and every night I work harder to keep you here by my side But when the space between us changes and you’re feeling out of reach Don’t know how much longer I can give you what you need Buried under stories of ones that came before And here we are just stumbling to open up the door Look into each other’s eyes and hope to find a friend Sometimes we look right past instead, our wounded hearts defend Every day and every night I work harder to keep you here by my side But when the space between us changes and you’re feeling out of reach Don’t know how much longer I can give you what you need Harder I work harder I work harder I’ve had a million questions about how it’s supposed to be Fast romance, sweet slow dance, or something in between Finally let my guard down and settle in a groove But there’s no guarantees in this life and when I’m still you move Still there are times when the smallest embrace Can send our hearts racing and the fears I can face Life is short, I love you, I see it all so clear Then the moment’s gone and the questions return You see once upon a time I was told there was a princess Travel through the worlds I could have her, that was my wish I was never taught that she'd possess hopes in her own mind Desires, dreams, flaws, secrets to find And all the challenges that I bring to the table Lord, I thought this would be fun but now I don't know if I'm able To be here with all the good and bad and keep my loving true But when I've said and done it all, my mind goes back to you Every day and every night I work harder to keep you here by my side But when the space between us changes and you’re feeling out of reach Don’t know how much longer I can give you what you need Every day and every night I work harder to keep you here by my side But when the space between us changes and you’re feeling out of reach Times like this we both just need a little space to breathe

Open highway I hear some say It gets better someday Tell me is that true 'Cause in each moment I’m less woman Oh, my body’s changing And I can’t find myself Oh, oh Oh, oh Never gonna touch Never gonna feel Never gonna come Never go Never gonna find a man, no Never gonna pass Never last Never settle inside of me I tried dealing Squash my feelings But each time I’m stealing From the little love I’ve got So this is goodbye Don’t think you’ll cry I don’t wanna die But I won’t say I’m sorry Never gonna touch Never gonna feel Never gonna come Never go Never gonna find a man, no Never gonna pass Never last Never settle inside of me Never have enough Never come around Never wait to see Never be Never cry because I’m not free Never gonna lie Never try Never make it reality A lonelier woman A lonelier man Won’t take my chances 'Cause pointless is what that is This song goes out to all the youth struggling to survive In the war on trans lives and communities I stand as a real live trans adult and say Don’t give in to the hype of conformity You are beautiful You are beautiful You are beautiful as you are To your hopes, desires, and dreams we say Yes you’re gonna touch Yes you’re gonna feel Yes you’re gonna come Yes you’ll go Yes you’re gonna find a man, oh Yes you’re gonna pass Yes you’ll last Yes you’ll settle inside of you Yes you’ll have enough Yes you’ll come around Yes you’ll wait to see Yes you’ll be Yes you’ll cry because you’re not free Yes you’re gonna lie Yes you’ll try Yes you’ll be a reality [Repeat chorus] Open highway Just turn away It’s true it’s not easy But I can sing for you

I can't disguise the pounding of my heart It beats so strong It's in your eyes, what can I say They turn me on I don't care where we go I don't care what we do I don't care pretty baby Just take me with you Come on and touch the place in me That's calling out your name We want each other, oh, so much Why must we play this game I don't care where we go I don't care what we do I don't care pretty baby Just take me with you I don't care if we spend the night at your mansion I don't care if we spend the night on the town All I want is to spend the night together All I want is to spend the night in your arms To be around you is oh so right You're sheer perfection Drive me crazy, drive me all night Just don't break up the connection I don't care where we go I don't care what we do I don't care pretty baby Just take me with you I don't care if we spend the night at your mansion I don't care if we spend the night on the town All I want is to spend the night together All I want is to spend the night in your arms I can't disguise the pounding of my heart It beats so strong It's in your eyes what can I say They turn me on

about

The Singing Bois' debut EP offers a ray of hope in a time of political polarization and struggles for social justice. Six tracks of retro pop bliss showcase the band's special blend of dapper charm, swoon-worthy swagger, and pointed critical commentary. A rallying cry for love in its many forms, this EP celebrates living life across and beyond gender and racial boundaries.
