about

Swell Daze Purcellville, Virginia

An original noise and performance: From three-part harmonies, to imaginative rhythms, to a meticulous progression of sound and feel, this is a group which not only raises the bar, but also throws it at you—just to catch you off guard. Swell Daze is a plethora of catchy melodies, pop sensibilities, combined with a progressive mindset, wayward approach to writing, and hunger to step outside the box. ... more

Track Name: Lost Your Head
Hey you’ve lost your head again
Can’t you see it’s nothing new
There you’re running off again
And there’s no one to stop you

You’ve decided I’m misguided
You’ll control me too
String me up and pin me down
It’s clear you’ll have your way

Hold on let’s talk about it
We can’t forget about this
Until you know just how I feel

I try to be the bigger
Person but you don’t get the clue
It’s getting harder to love

You don’t think I understand
A thing you’re going through
Ordinary estuary
I get both sides of you

Hold on let’s talk about it
We can’t forget about this
Until you know just how I feel

I try to be the bigger
Person but you don’t get the clue
It’s getting harder to love

What happened to yesterday
I’m fine but I’m not okay
My mind’s all over the place
Today

Hold on let’s talk about it
We can’t forget about this
Until you know just how I feel

I try to be the bigger
Person but you don’t get the clue
It’s getting harder to love you

Hold on let’s talk about it
We can’t forget about this
Until you know just how I feel

I try to be the bigger
Person but you don’t get the clue
It’s getting harder to love
Track Name: Hooked
Strange, you’re gonna put on the rock shelf
I say it’s strange, you’re gonna put it on too

Vain, bet you don’t know her last name
In vain, she’s workin for you

Ooooo

Blame, you couldn’t stop if you tried to
Blame, you hardly feel it at all

Shame, only thinking of myself
Shame, but I’m caught up in you

Ooooo
Track Name: Miss Understanding
Revelations come
At any time and place

Inspirations run
Muse has gone to waste

Sisyphistic task
Hard to overcome

Distraction wears a mask
Can’t willingly succumb

I’ve come undone
I’m saying you…

Are Miss Understanding
You are misunderstanding now
You are misunderstanding
Everything I’ve done

Noises in my head
Sidetracked once again

Time is running thin
It never ever ends

It made perfect sense
Nails against the glass

I've come undone
I'm saying you...

Are Miss Understanding
You are misunderstanding now
You are misunderstanding
Everything I’ve done

You are Miss Understanding
You are misunderstanding now
You are misunderstanding
Everything I’ve done

Lazy at its best
Little has been done

Better than the rest
Which still has never come

Tantalizing end
Close but distant still

I’m here and on the mend
Jagged little pill

I've come undone
I'm saying you...

Are Miss Understanding
You are misunderstanding now
You are misunderstanding
Everything I’ve done

You are Miss Understanding
You are misunderstanding now
You are misunderstanding
Who you are and everything I’ve done
Track Name: Take It Down
The foolishness was plain to see
They thought that they were meant to be
They tried so hard to circumvent the outcome that was evident
Anyone could make it, it’d be them

It started off in innocence
In joyful inexperience
The rain had stopped, the clouds had blocked the only light that could have brought
Them back to where they were starting from

It was entropy it had to be
The end result was hard to see
They didn’t want to be apart or have to stop right from the start
Separation had them in the end

The innocence, the purity
They fell away, they had to flee
But neither of them cared because they thought they had just what they need
Nothings getting better till the end

Take it down now
They could have been
They should have been
The best of friends until the very end

It happened all too gradually
He got roped in he couldn’t see
That things had drifted far away from where they started ‘til to day
Nothings getting better till the end

She liked to argue, disagree
Just floodgates for the entropy
That sabotaged the hope they shared for loving, caring courtesy
Nothings getting better till the end

Take it down now
They could have been
They should have been
The best of friends until the very end

Take it down now
They could have been
They should have been
The best of friends until the very end

I don’t believe what’s come undone
It got so bad I had to run
Yeah, he's done it all again
He’s let the one he loves run home

She liked to argue disagree
Just floodgates for the entropy
That sabotaged the hope they shared, that’s just the way it had to be
Nothings getting better in the end

The innocence, the purity
They fade away from decency
But neither of them cared because they thought the other couldn’t see
Nothings getting better till the end

Take it down now
They could have been
They should have been
The best of friends until the very end

Take it down now
They could have been
They should have been
The best of friends until the very end
Track Name: Move
Think no more than twice
Take, take wrong advice
It’s easy now (x4)
To see wrong and right

Act, don’t question why
New is better to try
They’re telling you, they’re telling you
You know it’s true, they want you to
Do what you feel like

Move lose yourself in the beat
Find someone, dance, and repeat
Give up and waste the night away
Save your regrets for another day

Time quickly slips by
Night brings average to life
To feel, to see such ecstasy
Your better person better flee
Now, the time to live life

Move lose yourself in the beat
Find someone, dance, and repeat
Give up and waste the night away
Convinced your happiness will stay
Save your regrets for another day

Just shake it out
Just drink it down

You've got to move, lose yourself in the beat
Find someone, dance, and repeat
Give up and waste the night away
Save your regrets for another day

Move lose yourself in the beat
Find someone, dance, and repeat
Give up and waste the night away
Convinced your happiness will stay
Save your regrets for another day
Track Name: Swindle Me
Help me to understand again

Why I’m still loving you

Coming up and I’m on the mend
You did it to me didn’t you



Swindle me with your jealous lies

Why I'm still loving you

Alibi for the devil’s eyes

You did it ooooo

I’m finished paying rent

I’ve got a, pretty life but it’s foolish spent

I’ve gotta realize this ignorance

Well its true, I’m rid of you ah ah ah ah


Help me to understand again

What makes this this so untrue

Artificial intelligence
You tried to fool me didn’t you



What’s the point its a hopeless ruse

I’ve traced this fraud to you

I don’t play to sing the blues

I’d rather ooooo


I'm finished paying rent

I’ve got a pretty life but it’s foolish spent

I’ve gotta realize this is ignorance

Well its true


Don’t tell me you don’t see it too (x4)

Forgiving this too

For giving this too
Forgiving this too
For giving this too
