about

DELAWATER Teramo, Italy

Delawater reminds to water but didn't touch it, the band lives in Teramo (Italy) without spending so much time in downtown. And then here they are the songs, in love with melody with a bit of psychedelia, admiring from far away Beatles, Byrds, the Love, and all the bands that rarely touched their astonishing levels. Shine on them crazy diamonds! ... more

Track Name: FAR FROM CARTOONS
See how they are, talking, shouting
See how they lie, trying to be friends
They cannot understand
They cannot comprehend how different should be
See how they live far from cartoons

Signs, they just live by signs
They sound like "bam", "boom", "bang", "oh my god!”
Signs, colors and lines
They don't need more, nothing more

Stories of talking dogs and infamous birds
or ambitious cats, taste of a past
drowning in a baby' eyes

Signs, they just live by signs
They sound like "bam", "boom", "bang", "oh my god!”
Signs, colors and lines
They don't need more, nothing more

Stories of talking dogs and infamous birds
or ambitious cats, taste of a past
drowning in a baby' eyes
Track Name: NOW I CAN SEE NO MORE
In my room
lives an angel
I can see
where She sleeps
where She took all the flowers
how She tries to protect my dreams

to decide what's good for me
what's good for me
but She runs away every time She wants
She runs away, I can see her from my room

Yesterday She surprised me
She decided to stay up all night
I was glad just to see her
kindly trying to protect my dreams

to decide what's good for me
what's good for me
but She runs away every time She wants
She runs away, I can see her from my room

and I can see me falling down
I can see her trying to catch me
I can see no more
now I can see no more
I can see me falling down

I can see no more
now I can see no more
Track Name: PLAYING WIPEOUT
Like a pilot in the air
like a statue in the square
I live in my house playing Wipeout

Like a cherry on a cake
Like a book that I don't care
I live in my house playing Wipeout

Mirka's knockin' on the door
Someone's calling at the phone
My sister from the stairs tells me “Mind your love affairs!”
My house is like a cage

Like a pilot in the air
like a statue in the square
I live in my house playing Wipeout

Like a cherry on a cake
Like a book that I don't care
I live in my house playing Wipeout

Mirka's waitin' at the door
My sister answers at the phone
That voice from the stairs, “Mind your love affairs!”
My house is like a cage

Instead of choosing between my girl and playing Wipeout
I let her win

Oh how lucky we are!
we spent the entire day playing Wipeout
hooray!

Oh how lucky we are!
we spent the entire day playing Wipeout
hooray!
Track Name: LO-FI SOLDIER
I forgot what to say
who I am, why I'm here
I forgot my name,
the battles, the bombs, the dying friends

I forgot my doubts
where they are, when they start
I forgot but I'm still inside
orders and dying friends

Inside
Inside
Inside

Il est mort! Il est mort!
Track Name: ME AND TINA WANNA DANCE TONIGHT
First time We met it was at “Cadillac”
I was uptight on the dance floor

I ring the bell, I'm a bit late
more deliveries yet to come

and when the party ended
You told me I could have move better
I said: “I've never danced those kind of songs”
I said: “I've never danced so long by my side”

and when the door opens
You tell me I could have move better
I say: “I've never trusted those kind of songs”
I will never dance so long by my side

You don't have to wonder if I cry....
Track Name: IS RUNNING FAST THIS CAR?
Is running fast this car
Is running fast tonight
Is running fast this car
out of control

How can I stop this car
How can I help her drive
Is running fast this car
I can't control

I suppose to be able to take care of a wife and a baby too
I suppose to be able to climb over mountains and clouds too

She expected me
She expected me to do...me too

I suppose getting old but staying young as I wanted to be
I suppose getting old and be respected as an employee

She expected me
She expected me
She expected me to do

Is running fast this car...
Track Name: THIS PLACE DOESN'T BUILD OPINIONS
Well, it's so ridiculous, but this place doesn't build opinions
people are very ambitious, but this place doesn't build opinions
round and round and round again but this place doesn't build opinions

how long we walked to reach this place!

there are words fightin' in this place
there are words fightin' everyday
there are words and words and words and words

there are words fightin' in this place
there are words fightin' everyday
there are words and words and words and words

there are words fightin' in this place
there are words fightin' everyday
there are words and words and words to embrace
Track Name: BLUEBIRDS SING IN THE WIND
Bluebirds sing in the wind
I rest for a while
I'm not used to wake up
when it's dark outside

I wake up when the sun warmly smiles at me
I wake up when the sun colors my eyes and my bicycle quite red

Bluebirds sing in the wind
They're so sweet to me
I lay down on the grass
but it's dark outside

I wake up and the sun isn't smilin' at me
and the sun isn't coloring my eyes
I don't know where I'll sleep tonight
It's the life I dreamt or something similar

Bluebirds sing in the wind
stay by my side...
