If the news make you sad , don’t watch it

Broken Records are a six-piece indie folk band from Edinburgh, Scotland, which formed in December 2006. Their first release was a single ‘If the news make you sad, don’t watch’ it. Originally formed as a three-piece folk band they added after a few gigs three more members to complete their sound with bass, drums, cello and trumpet. It’s a real great tune, worth listen more times than on shuffle. Nice lyrics also.

Go watch the TV
Tell me what you see
All these bleedin’ wounds
And rising seas
They dont mean much to me
From the couch here
I plead apathy

And politicians
They dont speak for me
A wreck’s a wreck
At least that’s what i see
And your faith you keep
Is it dark now? It’s waiting for me.
So stop the bad dreams,
Stop the headaches
And leave a little light
When you say It’s alright
Like when you say its alright
Well i guess it is

And she says,
“I know your doubts
But know this world brought you to me
So just be satisfied
So just be satisfied
Until the morning comes
Just lie here in my arms”

Go watch the TV
Tell me what you see
Any hope and love, any realized dreams?
Thats what i want to see
No more pain no tears, no more grief

So stop the bad dreams, stop the headaches,
And leave a little light
Like when you say it’s alright
Like when you say it’s alright

So sing to me I love it when
You sing to me I love it when
You sing to me I love it when
You sing to me I love it when
You sing
