Solitary Nights

by Marcos Cabanas

The king and the queen left their machines out on the street In the big boys home they're left all alone singing out in misery The beauty lover's box is left Unlocked waiting for somebody to take her soul The magic rat's left behind and the movie is left to unwind The town's asleep, and I'm not the only one with solitary nights Will you eat my soul damn rock&roll while I take the tele out Danny can't take this no more while I cannot let him shout Girl you don't mean anymore to me, Oh I'm depressed with problems all around Let be me myself again, I'm tired of acting like your ground The lights shut out, and Danny's stuck with solitary nights I'm living on thirty dollars a week I've got no house no car just a guitar Main Street is under construction And the diner place where I usually eat Is filled with these monsters hungry beasts I don't know what to do anymore What am I even taking this for I'm wondering down Guisean right now Danny bought a gun Danny was found lying under the Bridge with the authorities by his side He seemed to be expressionless holding the pistol gun with his right He's taken down to the church where the filthy smoke fills the air I've never heard of him or seen him Again Danny I miss you, come back here The sky turns dark, I'm lying down with solitary nights

Bluff It All 05:26
Day after day you keep watching Your broken dreams fade away in the dark Generations are falling Through the dimmed city light and the spark When hangover lingered in your eyes You left home away to catch up Once again through the frozen street's cries Hidden in the toilet not wanting to give it a shot And we keep on shivering in cold blood Running into the backstreets to fall In the night time your river and my flood Sometimes we gotta risk it And bluff it all In the night time your River and my flood Kept on jacking the Aces of love But when we're drowning in avenues of mud Our only salvation is the white Dove Well I still see your signs of affection Hanging off my baton Like kids within resurrection Who are saved and keep going on And we keep on shivering in cold blood Running into the backstreets to fall In the night time your river and my flood Sometimes we gotta risk it And bluff it all And you see now the years have gone by And there's rough marks all over my skin And they keep on calling us dumb Even if we prove them that we can win In the night time your River and my flood Kept on jacking the Aces of love But when we're drowning in avenues of mud Our only salvation is the white Dove And we keep on shivering in cold blood Running into the backstreets to fall In the night time your river and my flood Sometimes we gotta risk it And bluff it all

Laura Rivers 07:46
At the fall of the day And the rise of the moon Live in simple sentiment Sentimental mood Experiencing weightlessness But fearful of gloom Hiding under the bridge Getting caught, but not so soon Laura Rivers Bathing in the moonlight Rays upon my shivers Eyes shining bright Yeah Laura Rivers Let me whisper in your ear Things that shouldn't come To the light of day Feelings that should Be hidden away Picture me as I'm walking Walking through the wild And then a voice starts calling Talking real styled But the rain starts falling Like it's teared apart Well let the breeze blow And take my restless heart My restless heart Oh Laura Rivers Won't you stop playing with me Asking questions Deliberately Laura Rivers Making me a fool The plans were made And you agreed But then you stayed And let it run free You let it go Ignored me so Why'd you stop calling anymore They watched all the movies And listened to the radio Danced to all the Groovies We didn't drive on it to make a great time We drove on it to have a great time Sitting on a bench in a backstreet Asking how you came here to me 10 minutes outside the beach Are you here to stay or are you gonna leave? You say you got new dreams to touch New horizons you wanna rush But the visions that unfold with me are tough At the break of dawn the sun turns rough Laura Rivers It's all done No more bumps on my shivers The feeling's gone Laura Rivers Let me be You stopped talking And I was broken Then I stopped calling And you were never spoken Never spoken

Done 05:20
The times have changed and the world is done There's a heart in your hand and the pillow's warm I was told that there's something new Growing inside as a simple truth But in the end when the sun goes down That truth awakens and rolls around And in your head you feel repressed But there's nothing stopping it's just obsessed You and me have parted separate ways The defeating weight of those summer days And this does not seem so wrong Out of curiosity and fun But this just ain't a love song This is just to see how you've done And I'm no longer standing there Because I've now found my perfect one This is no longer a love song It's all done Throughout three years of growing strong Seems like the guy you knew is now long gone My whiskey and your gin are pretty tight Maybe since the beginning you were right My affection is even shining more But not in the way that it did before It's just that our differences make a man That would make the hard times come to stand And what once did cross our track But now a changed man can't go back And this does not seem so wrong Out of curiosity and fun But this just ain't a love song This is just to see how you've done And I'm no longer standing there Because I've now found my perfect one This is no longer a love song It's all done Now you go look for someone else But those things are unpredicted Pep comes ringing up those bells And pictured all that's undepicted And this does not seem so wrong Out of curiosity and fun But this just ain't a love song This is just to see how you've done And I'm no longer standing there Because I've now found my perfect one This is no longer a love song It's all done

The Price 04:43
Out in the back, lived a stranger who would call me night and day His sight upon my head until I lay into my bed And as the sun quickly faded down and into rain Whether I was out in Switzerland or Spain, stuck in my head And as the nights grow longer, and as the day follows the way My heart keeps on getting stronger That's the price I'll have to pay And then I say, I have a feeling that I'm a conquistador I got everything I wanted and more, oh I'm the best But then I sit down and I let my heart speak to me and pour For it to realize I'm just a troubadour, I'm just a guest And as I'm held by a finger, I'm too in love to breakaway My heart keeps on getting stronger that's the price I'll have to pay Well that stranger that I told you, I know his name He's called "shattered dreams", he's called "broken heart" The future is insane He lives in my memories, he's part of my past I don't wanna lose this game I'm playing that is going by so fast And as I learn, and I accept the fate that will end up with me God will say the words and I will come and see It'll be the end But until that day, I wanna have her close and hold her in my dream She's like the paradise of where I've never been Oh that she's mine Until it breaks, and you realize you lost all that you had Begging for forgiveness to her eyes, you're mad It hangs on the line Well I turned the daylight somber, but she keeps it from display She looks at my eyes, says, "No longer don't you suffer or you'll pay" I look at her, whisper "I'm sorry", I didn't mean to breakaway And my love keeps on getting stronger, But that's the price I'll have to pay

about

Solitary Nights is the second studio work by Marcos Cabanas. After de dissolution of The Attic Band in September 2017, Cabanas headed back to the studio with a new set of musicians and a fresh batch of songs.

The songs, written between 2014 and 2017, clearly see a more modern, developed sound and songwriting, that orients itself more towards Heartland Rock, while still adhering to some 'southern' aspects that defined Cabanas' early sound.
