about

Gaoler's Daughter London, UK

Their first 3 self-released singles championed by Zane Lowe, Steve Lamacq & John Kennedy lead to invitations to play tour dates with Babyshambles, Graham Coxon and We Are Scientists amongst others.
Their fan-funded debut album ‘How To Make Time’, released in 2013 is a uniquely dark view of London life. In a rare move, their second and final album ‘Split Like Cells’ documents the bands' break up.

Track Name: When We Were Young
looking back through tired eyes,
of you and me by the sea,
the future was ours to make,
the world was ours,
our to take,

i was gonna be an astronaut,
o when we were young,
you were gonna sail the seven seas,
now we're running,
just to stand still.

hammered over the head for years,
with the realityof mediocrity,
i can't help but believe,
how young i was,
so naive,

i was gonna be an astronaut,
o when we were young,
you were gonna sail the seven seas,
now we're running,
just to stand still.

Track Name: How Do You Know (Mr. Bligh remix)
How Do You Know?

You said you'd hate to see me drown in the river.
I've got news for you sister,
I don't want to either.

You said the size of the buildings will dwarf me,
and the shadows with cloak me,
and the fumes will choke me.

You said I never even tried one time.
How do you know?
How do you know I never?

Maybe the sights will make me star-struck.
Maybe you're right:
I'll come unstuck,
and run out of luck.

But maybe I'll use the shadows to shade me,
use the river to float me,
and be the blood that runs through me.

You said I never even tried one time.
How do you know?
How do you know I never?
Track Name: St. Peter (Mr. Bligh remix)
St. Peter - Lyrics:

It will be far too late
when you're standing at the gate
waiting
To see where the axe drops
where the big wheel stops
spinning
And your skin will turn blue
as you quake in your shoes and pray
That it's full down there or he's having a good day

Everything you've done will come around
Even when you're lowered into the ground
So I just smile 'cause I know where you'll be found
'cause everything you've done will come around

He'll read from a telegram
sent by the big man
up high
Of everything you've done wrong
and the list is very long
you cry
Is this gonna take all night
i've got some wrongs to make right you see
He'll say 'We've got plenty of time,
you can never leave'

Everything you've done will come around
Even when you're lowered into the ground
So I just smile 'cause I know where you'll be found
'cause everything you've done will come around

I wish I could be there when St. Peter
Be there when St. Peter shakes his head
and says no X2
