about

This is a pay-what-you-want download. All profits will go to repaying those who have helped us over the years together as a band and anything you decide to donate will be hugely appreciated.

Kids Can't Fly formed in early 2006, with a line-up very different to the one you see today. Over the years, members have come and gone and put their stamp on what has grown to be something bigger and better than we ever imagined it could be.

We never thought we'd be heading out on tour with Zebrahead after only a couple of years together as a band. We never thought we'd be recording in the same studio as Kids in Glass Houses and Funeral for a Friend. We never ever thought we'd become the most requested video on music channels like Scuzz, Lava, Kerrang and MTV2 and we certainly never thought we'd end up with such an amazing national and international fan base.

We would love to personally thank everyone that has helped us over the years, but there are just too many to mention. You know who you are though and believe us when we say we are eternally grateful for what you've helped us to achieve. You are amazing.

And last, but not least, thank you to every single friend and fan who has come to a show, listened to our music or supported us in any way possible, without you all, we would be nothing. We truly believe that we have one of the best sets of fans of any band of our size and you have made the entire experience unforgettable.

Track Name: Esmeralda - Version II
Her pins prick like fire in the streetlight,
So when the rain came once again she walked out dry.
And the hip shake, shake, shake, says to sense sorry
Take, take, take a back seat while I lose my mind.

(You make this work with heart and soul)

Is this the last time we'll race our hearts,
For the sweet taste that blows apart,
Every worst case placed since the last,
Seems a quiet night for the fright of your life…

Esmeralda...
Couldn't bring myself to actually tell her,
So I just run away,
When things ain't the same.
Esmeralda…
There's something I've been dying to tell ya,
I'm in love with the way,
That you save my day.

High heels click, click for home,
On something never seen so hot so hollow,
Undercurrents hiding head to toe,
Sensation soothes my soul.

We built these dreams on things with think but don't know…

Esmeralda...
Couldn't bring myself to actually tell her,
So I just run away,
When things ain't the same.
Esmeralda…
There's something I've been dying to tell ya,
I'm in love with the way,
That you save my day.
Track Name: Stick to Your Guns - Version II
Pride can cut like a knife,
But the keenest kind of vengeance is,
To stand up and survive.
So let's start, with our hands on our hearts,
Singing something we'll remember,
'til the day we fall apart…

We are… (We are)
We are who we are… (We are)
We are…
Ain't nothing gonna slow us down,
Stand up and out from the crowd,
We are… (We are)
We are who we are… (We are)
We are…
Ain't nothing gonna stop us now,
Stand up and out from the crowd.

Rise, take the world in your stride,
Pathetic people persecuting your aesthetic,
Will subside, if you just…
Live, and love who you are,
'cause when you understand yourself,
That's when you open up your heart.

It's on your face that, you didn't really know at the start,
But sing it like you mean it 'til the day we fall apart,

We are… (We are)
We are who we are… (We are)
We are…
Ain't nothing gonna slow us down,
Stand up and out from the crowd,
We are… (We are)
We are who we are… (We are)
We are…
Ain't nothing gonna stop us now,
Stand up and out from the crowd.

(Bridge)

We are… (We are)
We are who we are… (We are)
We are…
Ain't nothing gonna slow us down,
Stand up and out from the crowd,
We are… (We are)
We are who we are… (We are)
We are…
Ain't nothing gonna stop us now,
Stand up and out from the crowd.
Track Name: Happily Never After - Version II
Our northern horizons, were dashed in the wind,
It clawed at the walls where it worked its way in.

With a jolt my sleep left me cold in the sheets,
But the bedroom's good for more than just counting sheep.

I had a dream that you and me,
We danced all night in the streets,
You took my hand and we turned to beat, (You know)
But when the clock struck 12 I awoke all alone,
And remembered once upon a time I was here on my own.

'cause on and on the story goes,
Baby be my leading lady and we'll just see how it goes,
Singing woah, woah, with all my friends,
I guess this happy ever after never happened in the end.

Letting your hair down low,
To bring the perfect knight to your window,
Glass slippers long outgrown,
Have left you nothing short of kissing toads.

Tugging on heartstrings from the bottom of your wishing well,
Still slightly startling how you find the time to kiss and tell…

'cause on and on the story goes,
Baby be my leading lady and we'll just see how it goes,
Singing woah, woah, with all my friends,
I guess this happy ever after never happened in the end.

(Bridge)

With a jolt my sleep left me cold in the sheets,
But the bedroom's good for more than just counting sheep.

I had a dream that you and me,
We danced all night in the streets,
You took my hand and we turned to beat, (You know)
But when the clock struck 12 I awoke all alone,
And remembered once upon a time I was here on my own.

'cause on and on the story goes,
Baby be my leading lady and we'll just see how it goes,
Singing woah, woah, with all my friends,
I guess this happy ever after never happened in the end.

'cause on and on the story goes…
Where it ends I guess no one knows,
Woah, with all my friends,
I guess this happy ever after never happened in the end.
Track Name: No Matter What - Version II
We've worn our war paint out on glistening streets,
We've carved our differences in concrete trees,
Your fingertips ripped holes in hearts disguise,
Salt streams like laser beams swell in your eyes.

(We walk in step)
Like it's all we ever wished for, all we ever dreamed of
(We walk in step)
Like it's going out of style.
But all the while…
Eyes tell tales on painted smiles

No matter what we say, our hearts are breaking away,
I know I'll never find a better forever than you and I together,
But it's just not the same.
You know I wanna stay, this night is fading to day,
So if we can't let go,
Does it maybe mean we're meant to be this way.

We've been off and on, like a naught and one,
We've never held this down for all too long,
Lights flashing, buzz beats breaking, heart beats slow
But we walk in step,
And just hope that it won't show.

But everybody knows

No matter what we say, our hearts are breaking away,
I know I'll never find a better forever than you and I together,
But it's just not the same.
You know I wanna stay, this night is fading to day,
So if we can't let go,
Does it maybe mean we're meant to be this way.

Tear it up but keep it in your pocket,
Get it out and dust it off, pretend like we've forgotten,
Every looking back, heartstring snap out in the rain…

No matter what we say, our hearts are breaking away,
I know I'll never find a better forever than you and I together,
But it's just not the same.
You know I wanna stay, this night is fading to day,
So if we can't let go,
Does it maybe mean we're meant to be this way.
