about

At long last, the debut LP of Nervous Pudding has arrived. The 11-track album of all-original, made-from-scratch content contains equal parts passion and melancholy, heated at 350 degrees and allowed to set overnight. Makes for a hearty meal or a tempting dessert.

Track Name: Tonight
Well tonight, we're gonna rock and roll
Well tonight, we're gonna rock and roll
Come on baby; it's good for your soul

Well tonight, we're gonna reel and rock
Well tonight, we're gonna reel and rock
Come on over baby; give that door a lock

Let's go!

Oh darling, oh you're looking so far
Oh darling, don't worry I'll take my time
Oh sweet baby, I'm so glad you're mine

'Cause tonight we're gonna rock and roll
(rock and roll, rock and roll)
Yes, tonight we're gonna rock and roll
(rock and roll, rock and roll)
Come on baby, don't you know it's good for your soul?

Yes, tonight we're gonna rock and roll
(rock and roll, rock and roll)
Oh yes, tonight we're gonna rock and roll
(rock and roll, rock and roll)
Come on over baby, tonight we're gonna rock and roll
Track Name: The Problem
Every day I feel like I've dozed behind the wheel
My eyes are off the road and I've lost control
GPS has lost its signal and my mind is growing dismal
I'm out of gas and I've got nowhere to go

My vision's getting blurred; this life just seems absurd
I'm desperate for some answers to reveal
And I'm just too irate to elucidate
The myriad of ways this seems unreal

It's the problem of our generation
It's the debt that follows graduation
It's a sinking sense of alienation from my peers
And we're all suffering depression
In desperate need of decompression
But instead we're only living our own fears

I lucked into a job, so I feel like a snob
While all my friends are tending bar or starving
I still can't pay my rent; that taxman can get bent
Who can live on the rates that they are charging?

"Got to school," they said. "Pay a mint to fill your head"
And they promised us a cornucopia
But now there are no choices and it all just seems so pointless
All we got was anhedonia

It's the problem of our generation
It's the debt that follows graduation
It's a sinking sense of alienation from my peers
And we're all suffering depression
In desperate need of decompression
But instead we're only living our own fears
Track Name: Gone
I'm so angry and distressed
I doubt myself and now I'm second-guessing this
It feels like we're just wasting time
When every day I say that I'm just feeling fine
I'm not feeling fine

I can't stop the way I feel
I pretend I have so many secrets to reveal
But I am hollow deep inside
You can see that I have nothing left to hide
I've come untied

To part from you
Is something I can't do
But I've lost myself
I've become someone else

I've been gone for a very long time
Track Name: I Can't Take It Anymore
I can't take it anymore
I can't take it anymore
This life's become a chore
I can't take it anymore

It's the feeling that I'm not able
It's the bottle of rum on by bedside table
It's the want to find something stable in this life

I can't take it anymore
I can't take it anymore
This life's become a chore
I can't take it anymore

It's the need to find just one solution
It's rejection from this institution
It's desire for some absolution from mistakes

I can't take it anymore
I can't take it anymore
This life's become a chore
I can't take it anymore
Track Name: Have You Ever Felt Sad?
Have you ever
Have you ever felt sad; have you ever felt pain?
Have you ever been lonely; have you ever been lame?
Have you ever been shivering out in the cold?
Have you ever felt that you're a thousand years old?
Have you seen your life crumble to a pile of debris?
Are you small?
Are you human, like me?

Do you know
What it is for your heart, for your heart to be broken?
Do you know what it's like to lose all your words
In shame, before you have spoken?
Have you ever found solace in whiskey or rye?
Have you lain on your back and just waited to die?
Have you lost all your friends and found misery?
Are you small?
Are you human, like me?

I, I don't want to be alone
Oh, oh, sweet friend, please lead me home
Home to you

Do you feel
That you just don't belong; you weren't made for this time?
Do you feel
Ah, that your song's out of tune, and your lyrics don't rhyme?
Do the band's tunes not match with the ones that you sing?
Do you strum your guitar and break all the strings?
Are the notes that you sing in the incorrect key?
Are you small?
Are you human, like me?

Tell me that you understand
The feelings that I feel
Tell me you could take my hand
Tell me we could heal

'Cause I, I don't want to be alone
Oh, oh sweet friend, please lead me home
I, I don't want to be alone
Oh, oh sweet friend please lead me home
Home to you
Track Name: Josefin
Josefin
How can I name the colors in your smile?
How can I count the ways you've passed awhile
In my eyes?
I was blind
Before you

I saw you onstage with your head in the air
You were crooning along without a single care
And, oh, you knew every word
Is it too absurd
To say I adored you?
And oh, you knew every song
You were singing along
How could I ignore you?

Oh, Josefin
How can I name the colors in your smile?
How can I count the ways you've passed awhile
In my eyes?
I was blind
Before you

Don't know where I was; don't know how I got found
I spent most of my days sleeping on the ground
But now, now I know
I can go
Where you lead me
And oh, yes I'm sure
Sure that you're
Gonna believe me

Josefin
How can I name the colors in your smile?
How can I count the ways you've passed awhile
In my eyes?
I was blind
Before you

Oh I see, I see you and me
I see you and me
Oh Josefin

Josefin
How can I name the colors in your smile?
How can I count the ways you've passed awhile
In my eyes?
I was blind
Before you
Track Name: Words, Words, Words
Words, words, all the things I could speak
All the things that I want to share
All my dreams, all my lyrics, all the thoughts I seek
Concern and every care
But every time I reach to you, my throat goes dry
My tongue gets tied; I start to sigh
I get hung up and I don't know why

And I sing la-la-la-la-la-la, hey
That's my song to you
La-la-la-la what can I say?
What words can break me through?

Well, it's easy to be cynical in all these shade of grey
So we'll push along a product, put it on the shelf
Without a word to say
Is it fast? Does it rhyme? Does it keep the time?
Does it say anything at all?
Like a cold, it catches, and it lingers on
Who cares if it's banal?

And we sing la-la-la-la-la-la, hey
That's my song to you
La-la-la-la what can I say?
What words can break me through?
Track Name: Like No Other
I may not write like Shakespeare, darling
And I don't paint quite like Van Gogh
I don't act as well as Katherine Hepburn
And I don't think deep as Rousseau
I can't play guitar like George Harrison
Sometimes I feel I'm nothing in comparison

But you still love me like no other
And I'll adore you through and through
And in the end, that's all that matters
I will always stand by you

I'm not a knight in shining armour
I'm sure I couldn't stand the weight
But all you want is a companion
And I assure you, I relate
I don't need a sentimental fantasy
I just want a friend to share some memories

And I will love you like no other
And you adore me through and through
And in the end, that's all that matters
I will always stand by you

And when I feel inadequate
You're there to snap me out of it
And I appreciate your care
And it just seems pedantic
To make things so romantic
A life's a better thing to share

And you still love me like no other
And I'll adore you through and through
And in the end, that's all that matters
I will always stand by you
Track Name: Two Notes in a Chord
You and I, playing music
Spinning albums
Watching films curled up on the floor
Both of us making stories
Telling tales
Building up such a rapport

We're just two notes in a chord, you and I
Just two simple tones that blend
Just a G and a C that combine
Into music that comes from two friends
And could any be a better friend
Than you are to me?
Could any two notes ever join
Together in better harmony

You and I, in the city
Riding subways
Exploring abandoned canals
Both of us, sharing dinner
By the river
Considering "should we's?" and "shalls"?

We're just two notes in a chord, you and I
Just two simple tones that blend
Just a G and a C that combine
Into music that comes from two friends
And could any be a better friend
Than you are to me?
Could any two notes ever join
Together in better harmony

You and I, both retracing
Both embracing
Making bonds that we never will sever
Both of us, with a smile
Making memories
Ones that we'll treasure forever

We're just two notes in a chord, you and I
Just two simple tones that blend
And no matter what we could have been
Or what labels we append
I'm glad that more than anything we've chosen to befriend
Each other
Just another
Two notes in a chord
Track Name: Put Your Pain in Windows
So much of who I am
I owe it all to you
And I don't think you realize
Just how much you do
Or how much we've been through

You met me at a hard time
Lost, adrift, alone
You were drifting too, at the time
But how was I to know?
Who knew how things would grow

You are so near to me
But you're so far away
You are so near to me
But you're so far away

Look across a spectrum
Mark out all the spots
Indicate the highs and the lows
All the worried knots
And the time we can't allot

Look upon two people
Who share the same refrain
Sometimes it's just a song that you share
Some thing that keeps you sane
And sometimes it's your pain

You are so near to me
But you're so far away
You are so near to me
But you're so far away

Put Your pain in windows
Seal it in the glass
Draw the heavy curtain
Reflect on what's been cast
Has no-one really asked?

Pull aside the curtain
Let the light shine through
All the grains within that pane
Are all transparent too
Just as I am to you

I value every thing that you give
Every push and every shove
And I'm proud to have the bond that we share
Beyond friendship, beyond love
I appreciate everything you do

And I don't regret the things that we've done
I'd do them all again
I can see your heart is alive
Forget those who'd condemn
No, we don't need them

You are so near to me
But you're so far away
You are so near to me
But you're so far away

You're so far away
Track Name: My Aurora
I, I get high
When I look into your eyes
Sets my heart aglow
Lays my worries low
With a love that makes you fly

Stars dance about
As you sail upon your cloud
See her in the sky?
Oh, that girl is mine
She's the one that makes me proud

And I don't know where I'm gonna go
Frozen and face-first down in the snow
But a light in the night melts the ice and the cold
And it's you
My aurora

You've stood by me for so long
With a love that's always strong
You are the friend I need
Yours are the words I heed
You're the rhythm of my song

And I don't know where I'm gonna go
Frozen and face-first down in the snow
But a light in the night melts the ice and the cold
And it's you
My aurora

We'll dance in the night
Spin away the anxious fright
Here's to better weather
Now that we're together
You're the one that saved my life
My aurora
