about

Talk To Angels Bradford, UK

The debut album “This Broken Home” explicitly tackles the depths of human suffering with an unfailing bravery. Ironically, it is this insight into the black that gives this album its phenomenal colour - Overground Sound.

The heartache is evident, the laments are thorough, lonesome and passionate. Talk To Angels are an entirely new band with astonishing potential - Crack In The Road.

Track Name: Brain Man
Please can you help me
Forget this jealousy
I find it hard to remember anything
I wish I was you
Someone who gets through
Who finds it easy
Something I want to be

Something I want to be
Something I want to be

I watched you all dressed in white
I've heard it said a thousand times
And as I gaze into you eyes
Some never had and never will
And people come into our lives
They help us grow, see us decline
I know it's all a waste of time
You got revenge, I got your lies

Please can you help me
You've taken everything
You've hit me so hard
I'm not descending
Leave first impressions
Cos you don't know me
I'm calling out for someone to help me

Someone to help me
Someone to help me

I watched you all dressed in white
I've heard it said a thousand times
And as I gaze into you eyes
Some never had and never will
And people come into our lives
They help us grow, see us decline
I know it's all a waste of time
You got revenge I got your lies

I am still alive and vibrant with life
Track Name: Hickory Dickory
Come here and rest on me
Help me I'm scared to breathe
You're scared of action your sight wears thin
You're tired of trying just want to feel alive all the way
You're glowing light in here and I love the way this feels
Nervous and we just don't know
How to feel, embarrassed I got nothing to say

Smiles wear thin and to you, I am
(And here we go again)
As I lay down here and feel your heart beat clear I've made it
(Another night with you)

I'm so alive today don't let this go away
In the end you win them all and you say what you went up to say
Shaking at finger tips lips tremble one last kiss
Maybe then you'll have a chance, it's times like these we'll never let them get in our way

Smiles wear thin and to you I am
(And here we go again)
As I lay down here and feel your heart beat clear I've made it
(Another night with you)
Track Name: He Loves Cilla
Days are calling
Calling you from your bedroom mirror
Cos they know that you know that time is running out
Glass breaks and hands shake as blood drops hit the floor
Clean up this break up and no one will ever know

So spend your first night alone
Breathe in the bleach and cologne
No one knows a goddamn thing
A rush and thrill that killing brings

Fear is calling, calling you from 999
Cos they know much more than they ever care to show
Days like this I'll miss as waves crash on the shore
Heartaches and jail breaks were never meant to go

So spend your first night alone
Breathe in the bleach and cologne
No one knows a goddamn thing
A rush and thrill that killing brings
Track Name: She
He dims the lights and lays there
And wishes he was somewhere
Somewhere where he's not different
And feels he's learnt his lesson

She reads this note he left her
She breaks at this letter
She needs to be with him
And feel that someone's listening

She's on the edge please take my hand
She'll end this all when she lands
She whispers one last wish
No one will remember this

She breathes and chokes on feelings
And feels she's lost her meaning
Her heart is beating faster
The world's falling around her
She collapses on her bed
She'll close her eyes and wish that she was somewhere
Don't you forget, I wont regret

She's on the edge please take my hand
She'll end this all when she lands
She whispers one last wish
No one will remember this
She knows that he was watching on
She knows that she has caused it all
She whispers one last wish
No one will remember this

She, she can't breathe, she can't see no one will believe her
She, she feels grief, feels defeat no one will believe her

She's on the edge please take my hand
She'll end this all when she lands
She whispers one last wish
No one will remember this
She knows that he was watching on
She knows that she has caused it all
She whispers one last wish
No one will remember this.
Track Name: Enemies Closer
You've never seen anyone have it bad
Locking up all these dreams we had
I pray that we will meet again
So I can see that smile again

We'll celebrate this hour we had
With fake laughs and drinks, so bad
So let's raise them to the roof
And don't let anyone else get through

I'll keep that smile
I'll keep that kiss
I'll keep you closer
Let nobody in
I'm falling for you
You know it's true
I'll keep you closer
Give it to you

Are you listening I need you to
I never said what I wanted to
So boys and girls let's gather round
And I will show you how to get knocked down

We'll celebrate this hour we had
With fake laughs and drinks, so bad
So let's raise them to the roof
And don't let anyone else get through

I'll keep that smile
I'll keep that kiss
I'll keep you closer
Let nobody in
I'm falling for you
You know it's true
I'll keep you closer
Give it to you
Track Name: Real
I am the last step you'll take
I'm awake
I am the mourning son at a wake
Cold, fragile and old
nowhere to go

I am everything that makes me unhappy
I am left broken, unrepaired
Your lights, they promise they'll guide me
And if there's god, is this heaven or hell?

Begin a new pour yourself a glass
Take these pills, wake up last
Stare at the ground, reflect on life
Wonder why this world's gone dry

Waste away, corrode my bones
What's in his mirror's getting old
Choke out my fumes, burn out my lungs
No need to worry, won't last long

This is the place I'll explode
I'll take you all in with my hold
I feel skin coming clean
I feel it bursting at the seams
Track Name: The Unravelling Emotional Boy
Your eyes stare a black hole in me
You leave me lost and choked indeed
It seems I've said all there needs to be
My heart turns cold and it begins to freeze

And you know what you did to me
As I'm cold on the floor and you'll shake me some more
And you'll ask me to breathe
I'll let you down easily as my blood flows out the door

This life is like an eternal sleep
and death is greets you when you end this dream
It will damn well break you make you feel nothing
As if losing is the point of being

And you know what you did to me
As I'm cold on the floor and you'll shake me some more
And you'll ask me to breathe
I'll let you down easily as my blood flows out the door

I'm failing bad on this whole love thing
My friends have broken, given up on me
I'm so damn cold oh hell why can't I see
That I'm alone, I'm cold, I'm dead to me

And you know what you did to me
As I'm cold on the floor and you'll shake me some more
And you'll ask me to breathe
I'll let you down easily as my blood flows out the door
Track Name: I Am King Here
Explode your guts show me the light
Don't pretend you don't like the fight
Smother the world in your plastic love
Look around from up above
Place your head on your baby's chrome
Breath it deeper like a summer rose
As you lay look through the sky
You'll see him and close as you rise

I am king here
I am everything and more
You should listen
It's so enticing when I talk
I'll protect you
In these shoes I can stand tall
I am king here.

Fill in the blanks feel out the chords
All of the same words you've written before
Hope the world will listen to me
Watch your art get bought and sold
Watch your face slowly getting old
Let your mind switch off the light
Wave goodbye, see you, goodnight

If I ruled the world...
Track Name: Head Full Of Noise
I don't know what im doing here
I thought i made it very clear
I thought that you would understand
When you fell you took my hand

The words you say always seem to be...
They come so easy cos you see through me
Why are these walls closing up on us
I guess I'm sorry for what I've done

People often say it's cruel
A selfish act for one to do
A desperate call for one to take
But you won't know until it breaks
A calm collected cool approach
If you say no I simply won't
And as this bright light hits my face
We will never leave this place

The last time that I saw you here
You would not even let me near
And as this paint runs down your face
You said that you'd never leave this place

I thought that we both made a choice
I feel my head fill up with noise
Now I am finding it hard to breathe
And as this world falls down on me...
Track Name: Off The Radar
This day is getting older
The clouds close up, the sun it fades
I feel I'll live forever
This shallow earth begins to shake
I took so many prisoners
I took them to relieve the pain
I think you've had enough now
I'll live this day over again

Gasping for a breath of air
Like anyone here really cares
And if I sink into this hole
I just want you to know

If you close your eyes then you'll see me
And I wont ever let you leave me
And as this rain drowns the floors beneath me
This has never felt so easy

I've fallen off the radar
My eyes turn black so I can't see
I wish that you would listen
Why does this always fall on me
This house is burning down now
You took this all away from me
And now it's almost over
Heart broken, lost alone and free

Gasping for a breath of air
Like anyone here really cares
And if I sink into this hole
I just want you to know

If you close your eyes then you'll see me
And I won't ever let you leave me
And as this rain drowns the floors benethe me
This has never felt so easy

I've fallen off the radar......
Track Name: This Broken Home
I feel so alone again
And this damn cold rain keeps raining my skin
Off of my old bones and how it hurts
And how its right you'll stand in a dark room
And you'll ask for preference of perfume
I'll say you look alone and desperate
Don't you look alone and desperate

How I've been here once before
And I've asked best friends for kitchen floors
And I know it seems alone and desperate
But just like you I'm alone and desperate
And how this life moves pretty fast
If you don't stop now it will never last
And I promise you this feeling's with us all

I've felt a knife's cutting edge
As it scrapes through my last ounce of strength
And I know this life is meaningless
Every sunrise how I feel less bad
I've never seen a city fall
Never seen a home break or a lost cause
So why do I feel alone and desperate
Damn why am I alone and desperate

How I've been here once before
And I've asked best friends for kitchen floors
And i know it seems alone and desperate
But just like you I'm alone and desperate
I've never seen a city fall
Never seen a home break or a lost cause
So why do i feel alone and desperate
Damn why am I alone and desperate

I'll follow you to hell and through
This broken home
These hands I hold
Please show me how to understand
To be there now
To argue how.
Track Name: Lead Balloon
She stood in a furnace of fire - hell
Where the coals burn like rubies from toe to head
When to stops and stares into his eyes
She falls to her knees and begins to cry

So he cracks all his fingers
Begins all his work
As he leaves her behind wraps his wounds up in bandages
All of her friends say don't trust this guy
She only listens to him only listens to him

Stone cold, his house is not a home
He makes time stand still every time she's gone
And one by one they all come and go
When she gets home she sits in his thrown

And he makes her believe that it's her fault he's wrong
And he makes her believe it's something that she's done
And she screams out his name again
He never gave a damn cos it's all just a game

And she snaps snaps snaps at his beck and call
And she never ever wants it to stop
With a conscience clean and a guilty stream
Of people she don't ever wanna believe

And she wants him to save her
But when bullet proof is like a lead balloon
There has never been a way to get through to you

And he cracks cracks cracks til the vessels pop
As he holds her head down until the lungs give up
As the skirt lifts up on the table top
All he ever wants to do is to stop

And he wants her to save her
And as he holds her close
As her body smokes
All he ever wants to do is to leave
Track Name: GDR 92
Regretting mistakes that you didn't know you make and
Kissing the air as her face turns away
Don't say these problems are ones you've not taken
Cos I've cried all night, you will sooner or later

It's an all time low
And I want you to know
That I'm ready to go
And I'll make this day
The best damn day
And I'll find a way

Wasting my day until four in the morning
Blaming people for my constant self boredom
I won't lie to you but these problems I've taken
Dealing with them my way will leave you heart broken

And I feel dead weight
And my heart can't take
This constant pain
