about

Steven P Robinson Chicago, Illinois

Originally from England, now residing in Chicago, I'm a singer-songwriter operating under the not too imaginative nom-de- plume Steven P. Robinson. Once described in some strange backhanded compliment as 'The King of Oxfam Folk' by now defunct music website Angry Ape for my beg, borrow, steal attitude to songwriting, I create mainly lo-fi tunes that I release as EP's. ... more

Track Name: Soldier On
Soldier on, Soldier on, Don't stop 'til the war is won.
You can't hide, you can't run but your alone with everyone.
Soldier on, Soldier on,
I don't know how...

Time appears to be standing still,
I don't know if it's happening of our free will.

Soldier on, Soldier on, show them the barrel of your gun,
You're not meek, you're not overrun, you know what must be done..
Soldier on, Soldier on,
I don't know how...

Time appears to be standing still,
I don't know if it's happening of our free will.

Soldier on, Soldier on, don't be quick to act upon
Every order under the sun, it may prove to be for no-one.
Soldier on, Soldier on,
I don't know how...

Time appears to be standing still,
I don't know if it's happening of our free will.

How do you think you're getting along?
To me you seem further and further gone.
How do you think you're getting along?
I know somehow you will soldier on..
Track Name: Just You
I don't need another friend,
who goes away from me in the end.
I don't need another friend,
who leaves me with nothing to defend.
I don't need another friend,
Whose whole approach is a means to an end.

All I ever really need is you, just you.
All I ever really need is you, just you.

I don't need another lover,
who goes away from me for another.
I don't need another lover
who sees me as a way to recover.
I don't need another lover,
If in the end I don't really love her.

All I ever really need is you, just you.
All I ever really need is you, just you.
Track Name: Leave On Your Own
I'm a little afraid of things,
The moon is looking large and the walls are getting thin,
and the night has black eyes,
staring at you under that guise.
(repeat)

Oh no, you shouldn't go,
Oh no, you shouldn't go,
Leave on your own if you want to,
just don't leave with them.

You don't know how much they stole from you,
you weren't counting but then they weren't too,
and I'm sorry about your head,
I guess some demons are never put to bed.
(repeat)

Oh no, you shouldn't go,
Oh no, you shouldn't go,
Leave on your own if you want to,
just don't leave with them.
(repeat)

Leave on your own,
Leave on your own.
Track Name: Under Water
Hold my head under water,
watch my breath get shorter,
You were there, (your) head in hands,
voice strained by the over demands.

I would never harm you, no matter how much you wanted me to,
I could never harm you, no matter how much you wanted me to.

Send your warning flare into the night,
and watch it set the sky alight,
Your mind is blank, your eyes are bare,
teeth ground down to a constant wear.

And theres no use in telling you why,
you have to live and I have to die.
And theres no use in telling you why,
you have to live and I have to die.
Track Name: Just Me
I always loved, I always loved you,
but I never knew what to do,
I never know what to do.

And now that your mine,
I still don't have a clue,
For I'm still just me,
A fragment of what I used to be.

They'll beat us down day and night,
and we'll remain bloody in the fight,
I wish there was another way,
Our spirits floating away.

Melancholy and me, melancholy and me.
