FULL OF HOOKS... DARK... DEEP...
Are a few of the many ways the music of Nightbird has been described. Words that make us feel as though we must be doing something right, and that we're creating the atmosphere we wanted.
Greetings, we are Nightbird.
When we started out writing what would become essentially a 100 minute progressive rock album without any guitars in 2010, we didn't really stop to think that we would have to somehow put what we were creating into some kind of genre. But, back then we didn't even know exactly what it was we were trying to create, full stop.
It didn't take long for that to change and we find now that we happily identify with the Alternative/Progressive/Gothic Rock genres. But, in a way that we feel isn't taking too much of one and not enough of the other.
The reason we're writing this bio is because it has the specific purpose of being read by someone such as yourself, in the hope that you'll be intrigued enough to want to be a part of what we do.
We started writing and recording Welcome To Skeleton Coast about three years ago to be our debut album. A lot of effort, hard work, love, and probably a bit of our souls have gone into making it.
We're looking for like-minded people, with the same high ambition and desire to get out there and make our mark. If this sounds like you, then you need to get in touch immediately.

These Cold Months
These Cold MonthsDon't look away To hide your tears Hold your gaze to mine And I will tell you again I love the way you love me back And everything you do is simply magical I've seen the best of your worst times and you to mine-my hour of need And you held me Never to let go Never to let go Pre: And I feel it And I feel it And I feel it Woah-oh, Woah-oh. And I feel it And I feel it And I feel it Woah-oh, Woah-oh. Chorus: But these words never Say it right And no words ever Say 'I love you' right... Verse 2: Don't look away To hide your tears Hold your gaze to mine And I will tell you again You're beautiful in every way And not another soul will ever Take away, my love from you I've felt your kiss upon my lips when late at night you must have thought me dreaming I've felt your kiss and every time your lips touch mine It always seems to take my breath away Pre Chorus Outro

These Old Relics
These Old RelicsVerse: These old relics tried... To make it out alive I said I had this dream To make real my fantasy Where all my wishes breathe And fortune she smiles on me But all this seems so unreal No more the dream I shall feel Pre Chorus: Verse: Lost to the pages of time, The monument shatters in my mind. The hands caress through black and pain Sliding down my crying face Reaching out for me in the velvet blue Pick me up and I will follow you Middle 8: Pre Chorus: Lost to the ages, Forgotten by time. In place of luck, this curse of mine. And on an unmarked grave In the cemetery corner Beneath the dust the message: Chorus: These Old Relics die These Old Relics died These Old Relics tried These Old Relics died
Siamese TwinsCover of 'Siamese Twins' originally performed by The Cure. Taken from the 1982 album 'Pornography' Written by Robert Smith, Simon Gallup, Lawrence Tolhurst. I chose an eternity of this Like falling angels The world disappeared Laughing into the fire Is it always like this? Flesh and blood and the first kiss The first colours The first kiss We writhed under a red light Voodoo smile Siamese twins A girl at the window looks at me for an hour Then everything falls apart Broken inside me It falls apart The walls and the ceiling move in time Push a blade into my hands Slowly up the stairs And into the room Is it always like this? Dancing in my pocket Worms eat my skin She glows and grows With arms outstretched Her legs around me In the morning I cried Leave me to die You won't remember my voice I walked away and grew old You never talk We never smile I scream You're nothing I don't need you any more You're nothing It fades and spins Fades and spins Sing out loud We all die Laughing into the fire Is it always like this?

BLOOD[DEMO - 2014-2017] LYRICS: Verse: What do you know What do you say? Our voice won't matter anyway It's too late to be creative With a sound Make angels cry shooting up towards the sky The change has come With the new voice And one day you will know my name Chorus: Watch your step 'Cause I want your blood No I won't go back No I won't go back 'Cause I want your blood Now watch your step my friend 'Cause I want your blood No I won't go back No I won't go back 'Cause I want your blood Verse: Go back the way You already came I don't need no claim to fame I don't need no self afflicted Part time star With a sound Make angels cry shooting up towards the sky The change has come With the new voice And one day You will know my name Chorus Solo Chorus x2

Lure Of The Temptress
Lure Of The TemptressVERSE: You'll come to me, with love, no sin (And I will know I'm dreaming of you now) Said you'd wait, through it all, even war (And I will know I'm dreaming of you now) I never saw this side of you before And I must know what all this really means I never thought this was all you'd come for And now I know just what you really are CHORUS VERSE: Don't talk to me, if you don't believe (Another voice again will leave) Your posion words pollute my soul (Another voice again will leave) I never felt this alone before And so I walked until I found her I never felt this alone before And so I walked away from you CHORUS INTERLUDE HALF VERSE: I never saw this side of you before And I must know what all this really means I never thought this was all you'd come for And now I know just what you really are
Choose Your Reality
Choose Your RealityVerse: 1,2,3 They all take aim, And stare down shaking sights. Many slain and none to blame, For a war murder, blood disguise. Questions later, Shoot to kill, Video-alibi. 15 minute obituary, Nice start, A flash of light. Locked inside, You're left inside, Thoughts of an open mind. Hungry, biting, drink it down, It calls on every night. Bring your life to razor sharp, Crystal clear clarity. Say the line then, Take the line, Hollywood with rotting teeth. Chorus: And the veil's aside, No one knows who was holding it up. Now I see what it really means, To die with secrets. Corrupt me with your lies, Caress me with this hatred.. The veil's aside, My only chance to make this right. Now I see what it really means, To die in sequence. Corrupt me with your lies, Caress me with this hatred... Dual bridge (Tommy/Nuno) Verse: Then I saw my life grow older, Saw a child die. Now I see my heart grow colder, With these sunken eyes. Soon I'll see my life unravel, In haunted afterglow. Now I see my life expendable, Something made of less... Trapped inside my liquid thoughts, Time takes it all. Memories. trying, fighting through, We hold it oh so close. Single mind and marching forward Into an unknown world. Where nothing stays, and nothing plays But silence. Dual bridge (Tommy/Nuno) Dual solo (Tommy/Nuno) Outro
AutumnVERSE: Wake me up when the clouds are down and the world is grey I feel alive when the sky goes cold, no daylight serves to light my way Dancing our way through confetti leaves, arm in arm, just you and me But I know, it'll never be, the same as it used to be CHORUS: Oh how I miss, the way we used to walk, the way we used to play In Autumn leaves, in Autumn breeze Oh how I miss, the way we used to walk, the way we used to play It'll never be the same again VERSE: Wake me up when the fires light, and the colours change I feel so alive in Autumn time, this season where memories are made Growing old through confetti leaves, arm in arm, just you and me It'll never be, the same as it used to be...
