You + Me In The Summer Take me dancing Out on the sand This time it’s easy It’s in our hands It was you + me in the summer Just like another world It was you + me in the summer The best I’ve ever known Kiss me slowly The waves come rushing in As long as you hold me The days will never end It was you + me in the summer Just like another world It was you + me in the summer The best I’ve ever known (repeat) I think about you The sunlight on your skin I miss the memories The moments we have lived It was you + me in the summer Just like another world It was you + me in the summer The best I’ve ever known (repeat) The sun is falling It sinks into the sea The season’s calling I’ll see you in my sleep I’ll see you in my sleep It was you + me in the summer Just like another world It was you + me in the summer The best I’ve ever known (repeat)

I know you're out there Holding on You've been believing Far too long I can't stay To hold your ground I know you’re worried You’re turned around Feeling dizzy From the crowd You’ll find a way to do without You’ll lose your heart But it’s your life you’ll say Lay down your armor And just walk away It’s time to move on To another day Ooh that’s the way it goes That’s the way it goes You see the headlines You read the news But it don’t feel right To hear the truth You can’t change The past is gone You’ll lose your heart But it’s your life you’ll say Lay down your armor And just walk away It’s time to move on To another day Ooh that’s the way it goes That’s the way it goes

Do you remember a guy that's been In such an early song I've heard a rumour from Ground Control Oh no, don't say it's true They got a message from the Action Man "I'm happy. Hope you're happy, too. I've loved. All I've needed: love. Sordid details following." The shrieking of nothing is killing me Just pictures of Jap girls in synthesis And I ain't got no money and I ain't got no hair But I'm hoping to kick but the planet is glowing Ashes to ashes, funk to funky We know Major Tom's a junkie Strung out in heaven's high Hitting an all-time low Time and again I tell myself I'll stay clean tonight But the little green wheels are following me Oh, no, not again I'm stuck with a valuable friend "I'm happy. Hope you're happy, too." One flash of light But no smoking pistol I never done good things I never done bad things I never did anything out of the blue, Want an axe to break the ice Wanna come down right now Ashes to ashes, funk to funky We know Major Tom's a junkie Strung out in heaven's high Hitting an all-time low My mama said, "To get things done You'd better not mess with Major Tom."

Season Of Life Lyrics by Shannon Hurley All the little things The way that your hand feels in mine The sunshine in the trees Will turn to rain in grayer skies One day you’ll wake up In another season of your life Better learn to savor All the times that soon will pass you by In the season of life A kiss before I leave Remember how it feels with you A moment I can seize A memory that I once knew One day you’ll wake up In another season of your life Better learn to savor All the times that soon will pass you by In the season of life The season of life (Season of life) One day you’ll wake up In another season of your life Better learn to savor All the times that soon will pass you by In the season of life Performed by Lovers & Poets

Here Comes The Morning Feels like I could just run away Leave it all behind today ‘Cause I’ve been losing sleep over you I can’t help feeling the way I do Here comes the morning I’m not prepared to face the day Here comes the morning Suffice to say I’m not that brave ‘Cause baby I’ve been burned Hot enough to learn Here comes the morning Here comes the morning Here comes the morning Here comes the morning I have seen it all before Grab your coat, walk out the door A million times I’ve been through this Don’t hang around long enough to miss Here comes the morning I’m not prepared to face the day Here comes the morning Suffice to say I’m not that brave ‘Cause baby I’ve been burned Hot enough to learn Here comes the morning Here comes the morning Here comes the morning Here comes the morning It could be so beautiful I don’t stand a chance It always seems so hard for me To hold on to romance CH

about

PRESS:
Mark Sovel, 95.5 KLOS: “It’s an album full of really great original music, on the album also is this fantastic cover. David Bowie is really hard to cover. You have to come correct. You can’t mess around with David Bowie and just do it. You gotta be good. And they do a fantastic version of Ashes To Ashes. Really proper version."

Graeme Forbes, The Walk To Work:
Lovers & Poets – That’s The Way It Goes
"The Sun is out in Paris, and when I say it's out, it's blisteringly hot, so it's pertinent that today’s choice is taken from a wonderfully summery vibe laden album Lovers & Poets II album by the group of the same name.

Lovers & Poets are Shannon and Ben Hurley, a singer songwriting duo from LA, tasting success in various other outfits this is one of their many projects focusing on slow melodic chilled out pop, it's really lovely stuff, and the 10 track album is chock full of beautiful chilled songs and instrumental tracks.

I decided to go for "That's the way it goes" as it's the most obviously accessible, a song about heart break and hope, "That's the Way it goes" starts out with a lovely M1 Style Piano hook and Tempo, that instantly makes you think classic St Etienne, but it holds it's own, and the production while polished remains natural and light touch allowing the songs vocals to lead, and the melodic nature to sneak up on you with a mesmeric chorus.

It's the kind of tune that even if you don't click with it first time out, you'll find yourself humming it 30 minutes later, and throughout the weekend.

As I said the whole album is nice, but if you have the time do dig into their soundcloud it's full of other gems not least a cracking cover of Nick Lowe's – "Cruel to be Kind" which is an absolutely sterling take on one of my favourite songs of all time."

Bob Leggett, LAMUSICCRITIC.COM:
“You & Me in the Summer” kicks off the CD, and it only gains momentum through ten amazing songs that provide the perfect musical backdrop for relaxing, allowing the listener to forget their troubles like a great massage takes away muscle aches and pains.
Hurley’s voice is heavenly, and her keyboards provide the perfect accompaniment, coupled with the firm foundation that is the bass playing of Eisen. Even without her voice, the instrumental tracks “Get Crucial” and “Dream Girl” soar. In addition, their cover of Duncan Sheik’s “Barely Breathing” is amazing and breathes new life into this classic song.

We are proud to recommend Lovers & Poets II. We believe a daily dose of this CD will go a long way in alleviating your stress.
