Debut Album by The Silver Reserve

The Silver Reserve’s eponymous debut album contains thirteen tracks and has a runtime of almost an hour. It was completely self-produced without the aid of a studio across various locations in East Yorkshire including a barn, a summerhouse and a couple of bedrooms. The songs here aim to capture both spontaneity and craft; the guitar parts and vocals were written in isolation, sometimes quickly but often over weeks or months although the recording sessions were brief, impulsive and instinctive allowing the band to shape and push the (often previously unheard) songs into new spaces. From their beginnings as solo classical guitar pieces, the songs have found themselves mutating and touching on a range of genres and styles, frequently veering away from the folk-influence at their heart. The production is detailed and meticulous, revealing subtle, nuanced layers and rewarding the patient listener. We hope you will spend some time in the company of The Silver Reserve.

Song Lyrics

The world is pissing wet through,
I’m stranded on the isle amid the blue,
We made a house a home,
Like it’s all, all we know to do.

I left the city for this valley new,
I haven’t tired of admiring the view,
Of floodplains where I reside beneath plane trails in an otherwise clear sky,
I won’t leave here,
I won’t leave here.

In ten thousand days or more,
I barely moved from my source at the sea’s shore,
We’ve made a house a home
And joined with the other settled scores.

I left the city for this valley new,
I haven’t tired of admiring the view,
Chiselled name on a headstone,
Of this town, welcomes in the new.

I won’t leave here,
I won’t leave here.
Yes I wonder why, this place feels right, to call my own well I just know,
And over time this place feels bright so I know

Yes I wonder why, this place feels right, to call my own well I know,
I won’t leave here.

I don’t know if you know you’re no good,
I think by now it may course through your blood,
You’re all you ever think of most of the time,
You’re all you ever think of most of the time – it’s all you need.

Character flaws, I badly draw in 2D,
It’s not hard to forgive if you lose trust in memories so easily,
Hooked and lined up,
No escape to the sea,
You’ll share your life with her so fleetingly – cause it’s all you need.

You’re like an album with one good song – you draw me in but then I wish I was gone,
You’re like a record with one good track – you drag me back but only for so long,
You’re like an album with one good song – you draw me in but then I wish I was gone.

You know I work hard to be such company,
If I am a leech then don’t blame me if you bleed,
Party parasites need a host can’t you see,
Try walking a mile in my shoes – they’re too small but they were free,
Well I take it easy.

You’re like an album with one good song – you draw me in but then I wish I was gone,
You’re like a record with one good track – you drag me back but only for so long,
You’re like an album with one good song – you draw me but then I wish I was gone.

(They say a small dose is well and fine but before too long you will change your mind)
You’re like a record with one good track – you drag me back before I realise I was wrong,
(They say a small dose is well and fine but before too long you will change your mind)
You’re like an album with one good song – you draw me in but then I wish I was gone.

A memory like the English summer sun,
It’s always past; won’t last too long,
A hazy warmth if you get some,
Then a shadow’s cast and it’s gone.

Now it’s cold out… though I recall the sun’s glow, it’s cold outside,
Though It’s cold out, the feeling has gone – it just goes, it’s cold outside,
(So, soft light, can I keep a flicker of this life,
Let me hold on to moments I don’t think I’ll ever remember right,)
(So, lost life, can I keep a flicker of this light,
Remembered in half; flawed and slight, I can never hold on tight,)
Can’t get back to the year of the cow,
Live in the moment, live for the now,
Well what else can I do? I’m stuck here anyhow…
Now it’s cold out though I recall the sun’s glow it’s cold outside,
(So, soft light, can I keep a flicker of this life,
Let me hold on to moments I don’t think I’ll ever remember right,)

Can’t dwell on things I can’t keep …. Walk on little feet
(Happy hello means sad goodbye),
Can’t dwell on things I can’t keep …. Walk on little feet
(From lullabies to coffin flies).

Walk on little feet under the sun,
A camera lifts the moment’s gone,
My memory may not be strong,
Though I’ll enjoy remembering it wrong.

A wild look you could realise,
Your plans now they’re no longer pluralised.
Although I know I know when it’s time to let go,
I was sorry you were leaving.

Feet of crows and laughter lines,
Collected up to pass good times – gone.
And though I owe more than I could show,
That’s all if we’re not believing.

And if I ever see you – it’s only in dreams.
And if I ever see you – just memories.
It’s not real,
It’s not real.

A wired glint still in your eyes,
Tired out, the light I recognised was solarised.
Your soul arrived where I do not know a soul,
I was glad that you were leaving.

And if I ever see you – it’s only in dreams,
And if I ever see you – just memories.
It’s not real,
Unless it feels real.

In your way,
It amuses me, so choosy,
you cut loose and lose,
you’re restless like the sea. 

A waste of time,
To wait there patiently,
While I kind of cared for you,
You were sort of loving me.

You’re desperate like a wrestler,
In Royal Rumble III – Ted Dibiase,
First one in – clutching on to grappling with an oily grasp on all that you can see. 

Wasted time,
In light of fecundity,
While I kind of cared for you,
You thought of leaving me. 

Do you saddle up?
Or do you settle down? 
In constant pursuit of the joy you’ve known before,
Do you saddle up or do you settle for? 

A waste of time,
To wait there patiently,
While I kind of cared for you,
You were sort of loving me,
I was in your way.

I spoke up and I said all I could say,
Without speaking down.

You never leave this town for long,
I don’t think this place has done you wrong.

Tired lady I don’t blame you,
but his telescope mind’s always focused,
On the light of a past left behind

Do you think in some other town you’d feel right?
Do you think in some other town there’s just light?

——————————–
Instrumental Verse
———————————

You never leave this town for long,
I don’t think this place has done you wrong.

Tired lady, well I don’t blame you,
But you’re wasting your time on him lately,
He froze looking backwards through time

———————————
Bridge 2

Well I’m sorry that you feel you’re being ignored,
But it never rains it pours another cry of wolf,
Oh lord I’m so bored

Well I think if you leave here tonight,
Then you think that it’s going to be alright,
Well, you know I don’t,
Cause you never return as anyone else.

Tired lady I don’t blame you,
But you know the truth isn’t kind,
He’s still focused on the light of a past left behind.

Tired lady, she can’t save you,
But I hope that someday you’ll find,
A place in your mind,
that isn’t down deep and dark as a mine.

Love is only a loan.

‘A wild boar’?
Well I’m sure you can explain it, cause I’m not sure I’m right,
Grind you down, until you’re too tired,
I feel like a thorn in your side.

In time, You’d drain the colours from the sky,
You’re like a slow, sapping sigh,
Bleach me white and bleed me dry,
Until every light’s gone.

But this love is all I know,
With this love I cannot grow,
But my love I can’t let go.

Plain sailing,
You don’t see that as a failing,
Not every plane needs to take flight,
Then stay the same until your every night’s gone,
Till every light’s gone.

Chorus 1

You know that I’ll change,
I know that you won’t,
If you’d stay…I’d be a ghost by your side ,
You know that I’ll change,
You know that I won’t.

Chorus 2

You know that I won’t,
You know that I’ve changed,
You know that I won’t,
I won’t stay….be a ghost by my side,
Well you know that I’d change,
You know that I don’t,
She knows,
Well I know,
Be a ghost by my side.

You tried to make it
Don’t know where you are,
You tried to make it
Don’t know where you are,
Who knows where you are?

Marisol they called you – gone,
Marisol’s unknown,
Marisol well they saw you – gone,
Marisol’s got no words.

You will always be outrun,
When you are running from the sun,
And you were hanging from the gun,
‘Cause you would never make it there,
From wherever you begun,
Already knew that you were all sung up, hung and gone.

Oh for another song,
Could your heartbeat still,
Oh well they don’t last long,
Shadows circling in Sonoran sun.

You tried to make it,
Don’t know who you are,
You tried to make it,
Don’t know who you are,
Who knows where you are? 

Marisol they called you – gone,
Marisol’s unknown,
Marisol well they saw you,
Who’s Marisol well god knows…
Marisol well they saw you – gone,
Marisol’s got no-one,
Marisol’s got no world. 

You sang yourself to sleep,
Keep your heart pure and sweet heart your sweet heart.

You closed your eyes to disappear,
You know nothing my dear to fear your sweet heart forever,
This little girl I feel as though it’s as if I’ve known you forever.

We watched the storm go,
You asked me for one more show,
Well I’m good but I couldn’t make it so.
Love is, Love is all that you know,
Love is love is all that I know,
Forever – This little girl I feel as though it’s as if I’ve known you forever.

And time,
Don’t move too slow,
All that matter’s lost,
But doesn’t go,
Well I know I couldn’t watch your glow, grow forever.

Love is, love is all that you know,
It’s hardest to hold on and let go.
Only a spark,
And you are free from the dark,
And I believe that your spark,
Keeps me from barrel-bottom dark,
Keep me from barrel-bottom dark.

Don’t leave me tonight alone – don’t go,
A little lost is where I’m found,
Cause you pick me up but you’re so down,
And if I find what’s on your mind,
I hope you don’t mind what I find.

Free – frozen in starlight or ground below.

A little lost is where I’m found,
I hear in your voice the sweetest sound,
You left behind your saddest mind,
If I mine enough I find sunshine.

In songs – still sun – sunshine,
In songs – red blood warm – as sunshine,
Free – you froze in the starlight.

Keep moving forward,
If only in time,
Sometimes frustrated,
By these single lines.

Don’t you forget,
All that you know,
I try not to forget all that I know. 

Inverted perspective,
The further I go,
From these odd, grim reminders,
I let the smallest things grow.

Don’t you forget,
Those who made you who you are,
Cause it goes, closed I suppose you just forget,
It isn’t far….

If there’s only stony silence on the other side (I hope I don’t fall),
Then all that I have are the trails you left behind (back and focus on nothing at all),
I keep you in mind, in my dreams you still have time (I hope I don’t fall),
You never know exactly how far you’re along the line (back and focus on nothing at all). 

Instrumental section

Keep moving forward,
If only in time,
I try to stay grateful,
For this single line,
As I find myself sandwiched with kin,
Between the basket and the bin,
If I could stay paused here forever,
Then I’d win. 

Yeah no yeah no,
Yeah no yeah yeah

Got to stay,
Got to stay away.

From breath to breeze,
From source to seas,
Give out until,
You’re on your knees,
Steer your heart,
And you are free,
From love diseased,
A sweet release.

Yeah no yeah no,
Yeah no yeah yeah.
