A Decade To Die For Cincinnati, Ohio

Do you remember when you lived on pop music and you'd ride around to mix tapes with the windows down. We're sort of like that.

We are a decade to die for. We are a Melodic Indie Pop band from Cincinnati OH.We started this band in the spring of 2005 with a goal of writing catchy songs we love to play. Mission accomplished.

Track Name: 24 Years
24 years gone by so fast we’re chasing the clock like backwards is forwards, why is it that nothing goes to plan and all good things come to an end well I’m taking a stand, Cause we’re not growing older we’re growing like backwards is forwards yeah backwards is forwards and we’re not growing older we’re growing like backwards is forwards yeah backwards is forwards, We should be falling in love, just shy of commitment, when you say we should go please god say you meant it, when you say we should go to the coast, there’s something about these years we miss the most, We should be falling in love, just shy of commitment, when you said we should go please god say you meant it when you said we should go to the coast, there’s something about these years we’ll miss the most, we won’t fall to fortune, we’ll just hang out and keep hanging on, because we’re not growing older we’re growing like backwards is forwards.
Track Name: Let's Play Kiss And Don't Tell Anyone
I can’t say that I’m sad because all in all it’s not that bad, I miss the way that we kiss, from the corners of your lips to the shape of your hips, I know, I know I’m wasting my time I just like feeling alive, armed to teeth with charm and a magnetism you couldn’t disarm You’re infectious electric, you’re sunshine and lightning and I’m no good, For the first time I can feel since the last time we were here, making nervous passes with our finger tips, hiding sweaty palms while we’re lip to lip, I’m pretty sure I’ve been wasting my time, everybody can be wrong sometimes, but I’m impossible and you’re incredible what ever made me think, that we could be just friends, for the first time I can feel, since the last time we were here, making nervous passes with our finger tips, hiding sweaty palms while we’re lip to lip, I’m pretty sure I’ve wasted my time
Track Name: Honesty Is So Last Season
And this is the part where you lose your love for me your trust in me, it’s been too too long deciding for the wrong words to come out now, too too long, And this is the part where you lose your love for me your trust in me, you can’t love me into a better man I guess I am who I am, it’s been too too long deciding between what we were and where we are, it’s been too too long deciding to come out clean I love these scars, it’s been too too long deciding for the wrong words to come out right, it’s been too too long deciding between what we are, it’s been too too long deciding for the wrong words to come out now, If you’re gonna say it I hope that you need it, if you’re gonna say it I hope that you mean it, you can say anything you want to, but did you take the time to think you aught to, you’re burning more than building, I really hope you meant to
Track Name: French Kiss American Lips
Heat streaks and suburban streets, these bodies were made for this, we’re a damn sweaty mess well I guess you should get used to this, we’re going no where well we’re getting somewhere fast, there’s these rules to break and history to make, we’re going no where well we’re getting somewhere fast, this summer was made for, this summer was made for us, so please take my hand and remember right where we stand, and press your lips so tight to mine, remember, this summer was made for all that we’re good for, this summer was made for all that we’re good for, we’re going no where, well we’re getting somewhere fast, there’s these rules to break and history to make, we’re going no where, well we’re getting somewhere fast, this summer was made for this summer was made for us, I want you to know that I’m taking this slow, I hope that I’m not coming off too sweet, like the taste of staying up late simply to not miss a thing, my summer is done with you, there’ll be so many more of you, my summer is done with you, there’ll be so many more than you
Track Name: Virtue And A Curse
forget the metaphors and those sweet simple similes, I miss your eyes piercing brilliant blue, but I got patience, patience for days, A virtue and a curse I wish I could throw away, I’ve got this knack for over thinking, and this lack of tact is unmistakably hopeless, well I’m hopelessly hopeful for what I can and can not have, don’t cover it up with cautionary lies, whatever gets you, you’ve always had me, god damn it’s a mess let’s address the facts, falling into old habits covering up our tracks, if you knew this would end up like the last, just another six months that I’ll never get back, said you wanted, said you wanted to forget the past, giving up is pretty easy when you come up last, And I’ve got nothing but words for you to chew up quickly and throw up fast, don’t cover it up with cautionary lies, whatever gets you, you’ve always had me
Track Name: Baby I'm Living The Dream
Can we say can we say can we say what we mean now, can we say can we say can we say it with conviction now, somewhere between my heart and mouth I’m choking on the words that will make you believe, that’ll make you see a little clearer now, air is passing but words fall short of reaching your lips choke it down, it’s my only means to an end when your heart is running out, can we say can we say, can we say what we mean now, can we say can we say, can we say it with conviction now, We’ll reap what we sew, we’ll stitch with the latest fashions, broken hearted we’ll sing for you, If you’d only say what you mean, exactly what you mean you’re always just one lie away from me
Track Name: We Can't All Be Keith Richards And 21 Forever
I’m not ready to live much less take on responsibility, I’m not ready to grow up in stages, acting my age is not me anymore, making sense of promises, to be where I want to be and happy when I get there, I’m not taking part in this again cause everything I want I’ll have in the end, I’m not ready to live much less take on responsibility, I’m not ready to grow up in stages acting my age is not me anymore, we all have to live, it’s a grave yard with all these bones to pick, you’re stressing me out I’m throwing in the towel unless there’s something left to give, you and me we got better things to do besides watching others dreams come true, out with the old and in without you, let’s give credit where credit is due, I’m pretty positive I’m not on top of it, and between you and me the credit goes to you, I’m not ready to live much less take on responsibility, I’m not ready to grow up in stages, acting my age is not me anymore, we all have to live, it’s a grave yard with all these bones to pick, you’re stressing me out, I’m throwing in the towel unless there’s something left to give
Track Name: On Your Back With A View
Do you like, well do you like this cause I can tell that this is going no where but, up from here the world is looking better, we’re oh so high it’s baby now or never, and we’re so young, don’t find it hard to believe that we’ll move on, move into me, We smoke too much and we drink too fast tell me how long did you think this would last time I checked, don’t find it hard to believe, we’ll move on, move into me and you we’ll move into, But I’m not coming home without you, baby get off this ride, no you don’t have to do this alone, just say the words and I’m home, I’m not coming home without you, So baby get off this ride, no you don’t have to do this alone, just say the words and I’m home, the best and worst of times we’ve had, but I can’t say that I’m not glad that we’re still young and we’re not done writing this one, If were all alter boys and quite choir girls then we’re all hiding behind secrets trimmed in lace, but I’m not coming home without you baby get off this ride no you don’t have to do this alone just say the words and I’m home, I’m not coming home without you, so baby get off this ride no you don’t have to do this alone, just say the words and I’m home, If this is over then this will never happen again, baby one last chance to tell your friends if you’re out or if you’re in, this is going no where fast, If this is over then this will never happen again, baby one last chance to tell your friends if your out or if you in, baby get off this ride, no you don’t have to do this alone, just say the words and I’m home, but I’m not coming home without you, baby get off this ride, no you don’t have to do this alone just say the words and I’m home ,I’m not coming home without you, so baby get off this ride, no you don’t have to do this alone just say the words and I’m home
Track Name: What To Say
I wrote these words down, for you and only you, Because someone wrote them down for me when I needed them most, so let me sing to you, so let me sing to you, let me sing you to sleep tonight, mix tapes and driving around your town, a prayer for blank slates and the end of too little too lates, and all I want is to be your familiar melody, so let me sing to you, so let me sing to you, let me sing you to sleep tonight, Everything is gonna be alright, Yeah we’re gonna be alright, Yeah you’re gonna be just fine tonight
Track Name: Next Year
If I could tell you one secret darling I would tell no lie, your blue eyes are the only thing keeping me afloat, If you should go I would surely sink in time, we’ll take advise from the right friends, heading out of town is where we say oh they don’t say we’re going, but we’ll hit the road at the right time showing them the sun on our faces when we come home for Christmas. Next year at this time we’ll be washed up on shore with our face to the sun, we’ll be falling asleep to the stars, we’ll be calling long distance from wherever we are, next Year at this time we’ll be tenants to blue skies, neighbors to high tides, we’ll be falling asleep to the stars ,we’ll be calling long distance from wherever we are, we’ll take advise from the wrong friends, heading out of town is where we say, oh they don’t say we’re going, but we’ll hit the road at the right time, showing them the sun on our faces when we come home for Christmas, next year at this time we’ll be washed up on shore, with our face to the sun, we’ll be falling asleep to the stars, we’ll be calling long distance from wherever we are, next Year at this time we’ll be tenants to blue skies, neighbors to high tides, we’ll be falling asleep to the stars ,we’ll be calling long distance from wherever we are, If I could tell you one secret darling
