about

The Pocket Symphony Orchestra UK

Barry and Darren met in the summer of '99, discovering their mutual love of music and have been friends ever since. They started a band, which lasted six years before an indefinite hiatus was called. They both began other projects but, when all of those folded, came together in 2012 to write and record again. This developed into The Pocket Symphony Orchestra. ... more

Track Name: Tired of New York
Blanket laid out on the grass,
She fell asleep in a park by the river.
With her head on my lap
She softly sighs.
I whisper 'thank you' to the sky
I don't want to disturb her -
Pull her from her dream.
She's stuck in this place of discontent
And I wish I could ease her pain

She said 'Take me back to London,
I'm growing tired of New York'
I said 'No matter where you go,
If you close your eyes, the view is the same'

Took a tour of her home town,
Broke into her old school.
She pulled me close
And held me tight
As I kissed her in the playground.
With a gentle touch to comfort her,
Her hair falls across her face.
She's struggling to find the words,
So I kiss her again.

And she said 'Take me back to London,
I'm growing tired of New York'
I said 'No matter where you go,
If you close your eyes, the view is the same'

And she said 'Take me back to London,
I'm growing tired of New York'
I said 'No matter where you go,
If you close your eyes...
Track Name: I'm Afraid
I have spent my life
Always saying goodbye -
To my father, to my friends,
To all the many lovers, with broken hearts in hand.

I always sought the darkness
In the light of day
Even in the sunlight, I'm afraid
I'm afraid
I hide among the shade
In the summer time,
Avoiding all commitment, I'm afraid
I'm afraid to say I'll stay.

I run and I hide
I pretend there's nothing I can do
For my mother, for my friends,
For all the many starlets who've ever held my hand.

I always sought the darkness
In the light of day
Even in the sunlight, I'm afraid
I'm afraid
I hide among the shade
In the summer time,
Avoiding all commitment, I'm afraid
I'm afraid to say I'll stay.
Track Name: Bedroom Moves
Sometimes it's hard moving on
There's not a day goes by
I don't think of her
But I'm willing to try
Starting right now
I'm going to push her
Out of my mind

I'll follow you on to the dance floor
Show you my bedroom moves
And if you like what you see
You can take me home

Sometimes I cry
Myself to sleep
I lay awake and think about what used to be
And I'm going to try
Starting right now
I'm going to push her
Out of my life

I'll follow you on to the dance floor
Show you my bedroom moves
And if you like what you see
You can take me home

Sha la la la, la la la la
Sha la la la la
Sha la la la la la
La la la la la

I'll follow you on to the dance florr
Show you my bedroom moves
And if you like what you see
You can take me home
