about

Sidewalk Driver Boston

The music of Sidewalk Driver is high energy, highly-infectious, hook-driven, Rock with a capital 'R.' The sound is modern but the heart of the band seems to be more in line with 1970s rock culture - the Bowies & the Belushis of the world. The songs always come with some odd bent but not one that repels; rather, they welcome you to join in the celebration like a carnival barker hyping a freak show. ... more

Track Name: Kidnapped
I wanna get you kidnapped
I wanna get you abducted
You'll never know I was behind it
And then I'll come and rescue you
You'd throw your arms around me
And say that I was your hero
And then you'd wanna kiss me
And that's exactly what you'd do

The problem is, is that we're good friends
The problem is, is that I wanna be your man
You're feelin’ ten o'clock Tuesday
On midnight, Saturday
I wonder if before we met
I could change the course before it’s set
If I was a little colder, older
Served you some Tanqueray
Or...

I could invent an engine
That would solve the crisis of energy
It'd probably have to do with magnets
And you would be so proud of me
You'd throw your arms around me
And say that I was your hero
And then you'd wanna kiss me
And that's exactly what you'd do

It's true
I've known you
For so long
But you'd be wrong
To believe
You're seein' all of me
Even if you could, you'd never leave

I wanna get you kidnapped
I wanna get you abducted
You'll never know I was behind it
And then I'll come and rescue you
You'd throw your arms around me
And say that I was your hero
And then you'd wanna kiss me
And that's exactly what you'd do
Track Name: Everybody Loves My Face
The ladies in Dubai
They really love my eyes
And they weep their woes
On their radio shows
When I say goodbye
Well, goddamn!
I'll give you what you came for
My stars!
But you want more
Well Claire in Kuwait doesn't care to wait
For me to get back down
So she can levitate

Look in my eyes
Then look out below
You wanna hold on
But then you let go
My suit’s a mess
Such a disgrace
But I don't worry
Everybody loves my face

The curve of my lip
I know you want a sip
And they won't let go in Burkina Faso
Once they've tasted it
Well, goddamn!
I'll give you what you came for
My stars!
But you want more
Well blues wreck Ann in Uzbekistan
When she wonders if she's ever
Gonna see me again

Look in my eyes
Then look out below
You wanna hold on
But then you let go
My suit’s a mess
Such a disgrace
But I don't worry
Everybody loves my face

Oh! You can't help it
'Cause when you see it
You wanna touch it

Look in my eyes
Then look out below
You wanna hold on
But then you let go
I plead my guilt
In every single case
But I don't worry
Everybody loves my face

Shut up!
Track Name: Call My Name
All I do every day
Is work for you, my love
Spend all my salary
'Cause you can never have enough
But I don't regret, not a little bit
'Cause how much better can it get?
Girl, this is it!
Swipe the card and sign the slip

Don't bite your tongue, baby
Don't you restrain
'Cause I'll be comin', girl
When you call my name
All my history
Goes up in flames
Every time I listen, lady
When you call my name

You'd get the devil drunk
With the way you move
And I'm sure the lord got laid
The night before he made you
The slammin' doors, the traffic groans
The inane crowds, the telephones
I get confused
But a sweet sound still comes through

Don't bite your tongue, baby
Don't you restrain
'Cause I'll be comin', girl
When you call my name
It's late at night when my
Roommates complain
'Cause you get crazy, lady
When you call my name

Well, I dreamt I was lost out at sea
And all the animals
Were makin' fun of me
Above the seagulls’ cry
And the whales’ song
My love, I hear your voice
So gentle and so strong
What took so long?

My dead end job
Every day's the same
But it seems to change
When you call my name
If I stumble hard
If I lose the game
Well, baby, I'm my daddy's shame
So come on now! Call my name

Give me that sunshine
Let your voice strain
'Cause I'll be comin' girl
When you call my name
My hair might grey a bit and my
My voice might up and quit but I
But I can handle it
If you still call my name
Track Name: Five Steps
You come off like you're so tame
Ten o'clock you start to change
You don't even know my name
But you're backin' up on me just the same
Grab the tab; I think it's time to pay
Call a cab and we'll be on our way
You're starting to bite your lip
Like you're so eager about it
Like you'll die without it

Hold on
Girl, you actin' crazy
You love
All the bad things about me
Half naked on the hallway floor
Well, hold on
We're just five steps to my door

Back seat of the cab, ya know
My hand underneath your clothes
We still got four blocks to go
But the driver sure does enjoy the show
Got me up against the front door
I know that you can't wait anymore
Move your head so I can grab my keys
You can't go a night without it
You're not shy about it

Hold on
Girl, you actin' crazy
You love
All the bad things about me
Half naked on the hallway floor
Well, hold on
We're just five steps to my door

Hey, baby, you're a fine, fine lady
But you can't stand waitin'
Just to get me home

Hold on
Girl, you actin' crazy
You love
All the bad things about me
Half naked on the hallway floor
Well, hold on
We're just five steps to my door
Track Name: Because I Want You
I burn the streets
To the castle that he keeps you in
I walk alone
Though I'm leadin' forty thousand men
I'd launch a thousand ships
Just to touch your hips
My love, my love
You've got me acting like a lunatic
I've come so far
So far just to get you home
Love you all night long
We'll leave the lights on

Why do I do the things I do
Because I want you
Because I want you so bad

So now I see
That you went with him so willingly
My love, my love
You know the jealousy is killing me
But when I ask you why
You offer one reply
Slide off your dress
And your body is your alibi
I know the story
The story will be spun
You'll stand in the sun
I'll be the bad one

Why do I do the things I do
Because I want you
Because I want you so bad

I, I want you so bad
I want you so
Track Name: So Close
I talk about these things just to get on through
The things I love that the devil hates in you
Like the joy you bring when you laugh and sing
I think about the times we never had
I saw you once again with your lovely lad
Nothing I can do
These things are true

Just like the sun shine
Makes the moon glow
And we came so close

A wrong turn when you begin a trip
Even if you're off by just a little bit
After a while it's miles and miles
Well, goddamn, girl
Don't you think about it?
You and me and the world
And how we'd fly around it?
On the joy you bring
When you laugh and sing

And baby you'd come
As I go
And we came so close
And you'd shine
And I'd glow
But we'll never know

You start out east
Me in the west
We laid the track
We did our best
When at last we met at The Great Divide
We were off by miles on either side
The stage is set
I'm in the front row
But you missed the show
And we came so close
Track Name: Karaoke Guy (Monday Night)
Once a week, I'm a superstar
Got a special seat at the bar
The smoothest voice that you've ever heard
And I don't need to read the words
Don't even care if they like my song
And I don't care if they sing along
'Cause all I need is a microphone
And I don't care that I go home alone

'Cause it's Monday night
And I think I'm gonna bring the house down
Maybe you could sing a song or two
But I think we know that I sing better than you

I see you take another long look
To find your weapon in the songbook
The DJ already knows mine
'Cause I've been comin’ here for a long time
Just ask the girl at the hostess stand
She really wants me to be her man
She's just too shy to applaud, you see
Must be too shy just to talk to me

But it's Monday night
And I think I'm gonna bring the house down
Maybe you could sing a song or two
I think we know that I sing better than you
Well, it's Monday night
And I think I'm gonna get a standin’ O
I'm sure you'll sing your little song just fine
I think we know that they came to hear mine

Hold on till...
Just a little longer still
One of these days and she'll
Look my way, then we'll
Take a bus into the city lights
She’ll take my hand and we'll talk all night
Just as long as she holds me tight
Everything will be all right

But here's the real sad thing
That no matter how high I sing
She'll never want to be with me
But I still got my one night a week

And that's Monday night
And I think I'm gonna bring the house down
Maybe you could sing a song or two
I think we know that I sing better than you
Well, it's Monday night
And I think I'm gonna get a standin’ O
I'm sure you'll sing your little song just fine
I think we know that they came
They came to hear mine
Track Name: We're Going Down
"We're going down," the pilot said
As the masks dropped from the overhead
And there's so much I should ask god to forgive
But now there's nothing left to lose
I think of words I kept from you
And how we've only got one minute left to live

I don't care if we can't be friends
'Cause we're so close to the end
So I tell you through the din
That I love you

I tell you the hell that I've been through
Trying to keep this all from you
How before we met I only dreamt of you
But now as we're falling through the air
I run my fingers through your hair
And swear that every single word I said is true

I look you in the eye
We're running out of sky
Don't waste this moment asking, "Why?"
I always told you we could fly

"We're going down," the pilot said
As the masks dropped from the overhead
And I guess there's only one thing left to do
So let's get married here today
Not much commitment, anyway
We've only got about 35 seconds to get through
Track Name: Rock Star
I ain't a rock star, no
I'm just broken-hearted
It's when you let me go
That's when the party started
I'm going out tonight
Startin' tabs tonight
Sing the ladies all a song till I feel all right
I meet a girl and then
Maybe she's got a friend
Go to bed and wake up and do it again
I ain't a rock star, no
I'm just broken-hearted

I'm a tidal wave, I'm a hurricane
I'm a fireball, I'm a freight train
I ain't a rock star
I'm just broken-hearted
I can't stop once I get started
You know you really oughta go to the show
But I know you won't go
You know you really oughta go to the show
But I know you won't go

I ain't a rock star, no
I'm just broken-hearted
It's like the captain drowned
Right when the ship departed
I'm going tonight
Sold out tonight
Get deaf from the drums and blind from the light
Get off stage and then
Piss off another friend
Go to bed and wake up and do it again
I ain't a rock star, no
I'm just broken-hearted

I'm a tidal wave, I'm a hurricane
I'm a fireball, I'm a freight train
I ain't a rock star
I'm just broken-hearted
I can't stop once I get started
You know you really oughta go to the show
But I know you won't go
You know you really oughta go to the show
But I know you won't go

And on the day you said goodbye
Well, I was already high
And on the day that I die
I hope dying's all that I haven't tried
Oh won't you make sense of it all
Oh won't you be there
Won't you stop me, hold me, catch me
When I fall

You know you really oughta go to the show
(But you know that I can't go, no, I can't go)
You know you really oughta go to the show
(But you know that I can't go, no, I can't go)
You know you really oughta go to the show
(But you know that I can't go, no, I can't go)
You know you really oughta go to the show
(But you know that I can't go, no, I can't go)
You know you really oughta go to the show
(But you know that I can't go, no, I can't go)
You know you really oughta go to the show
(But you know that I can't go, no, I can't go)
You oughta go

You know you really oughta go
You know you really oughta go

I ain't a rock star, no
I'm just broken-hearted
Track Name: Ya Know
Well, if you wanna get drunk
Then get drunk
I ain't gonna stop you
I ain't gonna stop you
Ya know
And if you wanna go out
Then go out
I can go out with you
I can go out with you
Ya know

Like the forest through the trees
I'm so close but you can't see
So I hold you patiently
I would lie and I would steal
For just one word of how you feel

And if you wanna set sail
Then set sail
I will be here waiting
Waiting without fail
Ya know

And if you run aground
Run aground
I'll be coming 'round
Till you're safe and sound
Ya know

Like the forest through the trees
I'm so close but you can't see
So I hold you patiently
I would lie and I would steal
For just one word of how you feel

And if you're gonna get old
Then get old
I will always love you
I will always love you
Ya know
