Changing nothing means nothing will change And so goes my love life time and again I keep wondering what’s going wrong now As another man walks out the door And I can’t help but thinking love’s over As I pick myself off the floor But then along you came to save the day To show me some good love and I learnt to say: That not every man can’t be trusted That not every man breaks your heart And I feel so alive every new day With your love and this brand new start I was so lost until you came into my life to change it I was so brokenhearted, but you put the pieces back together And you made it whole again, heart again Feeling like I could start again Waiting for change is like waiting for rain ’Cause it comes again and again What a revelation your love’s shown to me (you’ve shown to me) All through your kindness it was meant to be I‘m so glad that I went through the downtimes ’Cause this love that we have is for real And these feelings I have were all true And I don‘t know how I would make it without you I was so lost until you came into my life to change it I was so brokenhearted, but you put the pieces back together And you made it whole again, heart again Feeling like I could start again Waiting for change is like waiting for rain ’Cause it comes again and again Lost and found Lost and found Lost and found

I’m ready and willing for love (But she never finds what she wants) I’ve been looking for it everywhere (When you look you know it’s never there) I know there’s someone for everyone So many, so many, so many someones I’ve been searching for so many years (And she never thought of giving up) No I know there is someone to love me (But she never knows who it’ll be) When will it find me? (Never? Will it ever?) When will true love find me? I know there’s someone for everyone So many, so many, so many someones I’m still waiting and looking for love (But she never finds what she wants) I’ve been looking for it everywhere (Doesn’t mean for you it’s never there) When will it find me? (Never? Will it ever?) When will true love find me? When will it find me? Will true love find me? When will it find me? Will true love find me? When will it find me?

The day you left me you said you can’t explain Love’s not an easy game I know you’re sorry, but it will never heal The thought you and me were real You wanna care for me as a friend, you better stop Whenever you see me you should turn around There’s no way out Baby please stop doin’ the things you do Stop doin’ the things you do Not lookin’ back, lookin‘ back to you You ask me if I‘d like to go out with you Though you broke up Boy you had your chance and one smile won’t ease The pain that I got Don’t you see it’s making me sad, you better stop. Soon you’ll have a new girl and do not care Why should I be there? Baby please stop doin’ the things you do Stop doin’ the things you do Not lookin’ back, lookin‘ back to you Stop doin’ the things you do Not lookin’ back, lookin‘ back to you Stop doin’ the things you do Not lookin’ back, lookin‘ back to you Stop doin’ the things you do Not lookin’ back, lookin‘ back to you Don’t you see it’s hurting me bad, you better stop Soon you’ll have a new girl and do not care Why should I be there? Baby please stop doin’ the things you do Stop doin’ the things you do Not lookin’ back, lookin‘ back to you Stop doin’ the things you do Not lookin’ back, lookin‘ back to you Stop doin’ the things you do Not lookin’ back, lookin‘ back to you Stop doin’ the things you do Not lookin’ back, lookin‘ back to you

Do, do I, do, do, do I? Do, do I, do, do, do I? Do, do I believe that your love is real? You’re tryin’ your best to convince me you‘re a real man You’ve gotta work a little harder than that Try your best to make me understand I have believed before and I said no more Heartbreakers, no, no, no! I want a real love so, so, so! So only come on if you think that you're the one I want a 2 point 4 and a house on the hill Do, do I, do, do, do I? Do, do I, do, do, do I? Do, do I believe that your love is real? I‘ll give you half a chance and after that I’m gone (I’ll be gone) There’s no use sticking ’round when you know what you want I’ve got a lot of things in life I wanna do Ao if you‘re in then it’s on and I‘ll do them with you Do, do I, do, do, do I? Do, do I, do, do, do I? Do, do I believe that your love is real? I’m talking ’bout some heartbreaking hurricane, sons of a gun The kind that like to love you crazy, quick and run You’ve gotta show me baby that you‘re not one I have to believe your love is real If you can‘t give me that then I won‘t stick around (round and round) If you make one mistake I’m gonna go to ground (to the ground) I’m sick of little boys that only mess around I want a big strong man with his feet on the ground. I’m talking ’bout some heartbreaking hurricane, sons of a gun The kind that like to love you crazy, quick and run You’ve gotta show me baby that you‘re not one I have to believe your love is real Do, do I, do, do, do I? Do, do I, do, do, do I? Do, do I believe that your love is real? Do, do I, do, do, do I? Do, do I, do, do, do I? Do, do I believe that your love is real? Do I do? Do I do?

Waking up in the middle of the night Again hearing fussing and a fight Welcome home to the dark side of town Where nobody cares what is happening around Next door alcohol is someone’s best friend Upstairs party to electro and trance Let me tell you ’round here things ain’t right What you see is what you get Don’t expect peace and friendliness What you see is what you get Everyone’s got his own way to deal with it In between there is you and there is me Landed stranded, nowhere else to be Tryin’ to rearrange, making things to work out Closer looks, understandings and some freak-outs What you see is what you get Don’t expect peace and friendliness What you see is what you get Everyone’s got his own way to deal with it He gets drunk, turns up the music way too loud I write a song instead of screaming and shouting This whole lot of misery out What you see is what you get What you see is what you get …

Want To Stop 02:40
It’s a feeling I can’t hide When I see you again Making me smile, but even I can’t deny Yes I know I’m doing wrong But what shall I do? Maybe too late Or maybe I’m just afraid Ooh I wanna stop Ooh I wanna stop me seeing you But I cannot stop No I cannot stop this thing with you It’s the way you talk to me You know I enjoy But you will decide everytime, I know This is never gonna change You will stay with your girl And that’s up to you But I don’t wanna lose you too Ooh I wanna stop Ooh I wanna stop me seeing you But I cannot stop No I cannot stop this thing with you Ooh I wanna stop Ooh I wanna stop me seeing you But I cannot stop No I cannot stop this thing with you Yes we know it’s not right, is it you who’ll decide? We could quit, you could leave, I could walk, but I don’t So we stay and deceive those who trust and believe We don’t wanna break that, but don’t wanna lose this too Yes we know it’s not right, is it you who’ll decide? We could quit, you could leave, I could walk, but I don’t So we stay and deceive those who trust and believe We don’t wanna break that, but don’t wanna lose this too …

Never Enough 03:11
Everything I have to give All you ever need to have But it’s not enough, no, no, no, no Never enough Would you be happy with less than the best? Would you be satisfied with less than the rest? What if you saw me down on my knees? What if you knew how much your lovin’ I need? ‘Cause I give you everything I have to give ‘Cause I give you all you ever need to have But it’s not enough, no, no, no, no. Never enough It should be simple between you and me All of the love I give you should return to me ‘Cause I give you everything I have to give ‘Cause I give you all you ever need to have But it’s not enough, no, no, no, no But it’s not enough, no, no, no, no Never enough All that I give you is never enough No matter what I do, it’s never enough All that I give you is never enough No matter what I do, it’s never enough …

We’ve been together now through all of the pain So here’s hoping for sunshine after the rain If I have you by my side I can face this troubled ride and hold on Singing now whoa I’m holding on, yeah Love is a two-way street And every corner that I turn I hope it’s your face that I meet We can’t build this overnight I won’t promise not to fight But I’ll hold on Singing now whoa I’m holding on, yeah To the words Otis sang in a song `I’ve been loving you too long to stop now` Why would I let you go? Oh well everybody pries, but nobody knows If distance didn’t put us under Lightning won’t split asunder the love That we’ve found and we’ll hold on Singing now whoa I’m holding on, yeah To the words Otis sang in a song `I’ve been loving you too long to stop now` Can't stop now Can't loving you now Singing now whoa I’m holding on, yeah To the words Otis sang in a song `I’ve been loving you too long to stop now`

This Is True 04:13
You give me something That I never felt before, no, no, no I give you my love That is greater as all that you know And you turn away but still hang on my lips What did I do wrong? Don’t know what to do Is there something you missed? Now I’m standing here and I’m talking to you Just listen to… Baby don’t you feel me, you are my love And baby please believe me, this is true You got my love and my soul So be sure I won’t leave you Over and over I told you That you are the love that I found Yes, it wasn’t easy between us But the past has moved on like a cloud You will understand if you take your time ´Cause this is our chance Make yourself free from all thoughts in your mind Let’s start something new We have everything we need (We could start together, feel it) Can you feel it? Baby don’t you feel me, you are my love And baby please believe me, this is true You got my love and my soul So be sure I won’t leave you (So be sure I won't leave, I won't leave you) (So be sure I won't leave, I won't leave you) Baby don’t you feel me, you are my love And baby please believe me, this is true You got my love and my soul So be sure I won’t leave you

I saw you standing there Never thought that you would care But then you came over, I wondered why I thought that you might pass me by It’s gonna be you, you It’s gonna be you, you Nothing makes me doubt anymore that it’s right I know it’s not in vain There won’t be any pain ‘Cause all my sorrows seem to be gone When you’re around me, so much fun It’s gonna be you, you It’s gonna be you, you Nothing makes me doubt anymore that it’s right So many years have gone by And you‘re still by my side The more I’m thinking over The more I feel blessed ’Cause everytime before it didn’t last I do not change at all But nothing I expect anymore Maybe that’s the reason, don’t worry about Enjoying every moment when you’re around It’s gonna be you, you It’s gonna be you, you Nothing makes me doubt anymore that it’s right Nothing makes me doubt anymore that it’s right Nothing makes me doubt anymore that it’s right

What kind of fool are you To think that I won‘t be true? What kind of man believes A love like ours we could deceive? You’ve got me hanging on your every word And my heart beats so loud the world has heard That I will be your love until the end With a love so strong I can’t pretend I take my time with you every night To check that everything’s alright I count my blessings and I count again The love we have is never ending What kind of fool are you To think that I won‘t be true? What kind of man believes A love like ours we could deceive? When I tell you this you don‘t believe The love we have is all I need I’ll do my best to show the world it’s true But what good is that unless you do I keep on hoping that you’ll see the light With some patience and a little time The more you trust in me the more I give When the road gets tough, the love gets stronger What kind of fool are you To think that I won‘t be true? What kind of man believes A love like ours we could deceive? What kind of fool are you To think that I won‘t be true? What kind of man believes A love like ours we could deceive? What kind of fool, what kind of fool What kind of fool are you To think that I won‘t be true? What kind of man believes A love like ours we could deceive? What kind of fool are you To think that I won‘t be true? What kind of man believes A love like ours we could deceive?

Don’t get it, what happened Is that you I got to know? Can you explain that You make me so mad It’s enough, you gotta go You said you love me You know what this means If I listened to my friends I wouldn’t pick up my heart with my hands I will survive it, but I must admit It takes time to feel alive Should I feel lonely You’re not the only one who’ll come into my life Yeah I hate to, to think of you But the pain will subside Then I can dream again at night Please leave me alone Don’t call me as your own Pack your bags, take the next train Your words are driving me insane Please leave me alone Don’t call me as your own Pack your bags, take the next train Your words are driving me insane Please leave me alone, alone, alone.

Keep On 03:08
Keep on keepin‘ on as you did before? ‘Cause you might lose the way and the beat That you’re livin‘ on? But what is on your mind, are you really fine? Wouldn’t you like to do anything that you want? Everyday the same, you don’t feel alright What about the things you told last night? You should know there is nothing left to say So just stop and you will find your way One day, one day you‘ll keep askin‘ yourself: Did you live like you wanna live or did life just pass? So what is on your mind, don’t you think it’s time? Life doesn’t wait for you, choose the way that you want Everyday the same, you don’t feel alright What about the things you told last night? You should know there is nothing left to say So just stop and you will find your way Find your way, your way Find your way, find your way What is on your mind, are you really fine? Wouldn’t you like to do anything that you want? What is on your mind, don’t you think it’s time? Life doesn’t wait for you, choose the way that you want What is on your mind, are you really fine? Wouldn’t you like to do anything that you want? What is on your mind, don’t you think it’s time? Life doesn’t wait for you, choose the way that you want

White Lies 03:42
You know I love you right With all your inner light With you I can be myself Most of the time But sometimes I have to do Something you won’t approve And for that I need to use A little white lie A little white lie Is how we get by When the truth we feel Is too real to reveal It’s not a bad thing At least not from where I’m standing I protect you from the real, real me So don’t look me in the eyes You’ll see through all of my little white lies Don’t do it baby, don’t break through my disguise White lies, white lies I just used a little, a little, a little White lies, white lies I just used a little, a little, a little A little white lie Is how we get by When the truth we feel Is too real to reveal It’s not a bad thing At least not from where I’m standing I protect you from the real, real me So don’t look me in the eyes You’ll see through all of my little white lies Don’t do it baby, don’t break through my disguise White lies, white lies I just used a little, a little, a little White lies, white lies I just used a little, a little, a little White lies, white lies I just used a little, a little, a little White lies, white lies I just used a little, a little, a little …

about

Three ladies sing, their melodies enchant to the groove of the band. Horns push, strings sweeten up. The Everettes bring back the nearly forgotten vibe of 60s girl groups to the present and they do it with their very own charm. Clearly inspired by Northern Soul, Stax and the latest neo soul revivals, the Berlin based combo is not stating the big question of genre though – they just rather create what they love: wonderful songs, to which you want to hear the vinyl crackle and dance across the allnighter floor.

After compelling performances at British scooter rallies, the Baltic Soul Weekender and even Lollapalooza, The Everettes will now release their self-titled first album in May. It contains no less than 14 original tracks, mostly recorded live and through analogue gear, with alternating lead and backing vocals by Jess Roberts, Katharina Dommisch and Laura Niemeyer.

The band emerged from Berlin’s former soul darlings The Floorettes, who were popular also beyond the scene and even caused a stir in Japan with their album 'Pocket Full of Soul' in 2012. Five of those band members are still involved, two of the singers joined since then. Thereby the sound also got more rooty and grown-up and the three front women complement each other very well in their vocals. While British northern soul Jess, who already released solo singles with Acid Jazz Records, delights with her contagious power, original Berliner (and full-time nursery teacher) Laura soothes with warm soulful tones and Katharina, just as in the previous band, reminds the listener of the likes of Carole King or Laura Nyro with her gentle and captivating voice.

In studio The Everettes worked with Robbie A.J. Moore and Sam Vine, who also produced the latest album by Jesper Munk among others. Thereby it was all about capturing the most of the magic from playing together in a live setting, instead of trying to bring the tracks to too much perfection. This undisguised freshness is also the ultimate feature of the nine or more musicians at their concerts. You should definitely see them!
